PARIS, July 2.—Paris is going to
male* Wednesday the most glorious
Fourth in hiatory. It s to be ‘ Amer
ica day” Gen. Pershing has, of
course, drawn lots of cheers, but
what’s going to happen on the
Fourth of July will Just make the
"irelkin ring.
There are plenty of American sol
diers in Paris now; plenty of navy
Oftcers. But the spectacle of ser
ried ranks of France’s latest de
fenders marching is one that will
ho saved up for July 4.
Arrangements were completed
With Gen Pershings arrival today
Ibr the dispatch to Paris on Indepem
donee day of a full battalion of
American "Sammies.” in regulation
torching order. They will exhibit
their steps to the Parisian populace.
They are due in Paris early tomor
row morning, and frpm that time
Util th<* depart probably on July
B, Farts proposes to show them the
Inest time ever.
But the American paraae is to be
only one part of the celebration.
There will be speeches and special
amusement* —and back of it all the
oolid, heartful gratitude of France
oxpressing Itself to Its newest ally.
First news of the American troops
girival was heralded by the biggest
headlines Paris newspapers have
Hoed in many a day. Unofficially,
the arrival of the first contingent
had been known for several days but
announcement was withheld to tn
gnre safety of other transport units.
French editorial writers outdid
themselves in welcoming the Ameri
cans.
-The great new world democracy
does not do things by halves,' said
the Journal des Debats. "It enters
the conflict with the full realization
and with full resolution. They will
neglect nothing, spare nothing to at
tain those aims. America’s help
will be decisive.
“Seventy-five days after America s
entrance Into the war, American sol
diers arrived at the European fir
ing line—not with a modest van
guard which was the most optimists
dared hope so with strong
forces, whose success in crossing
•lone la the cruellest setback to the
Dorman submarine campaign.' The
achievement surpasses any reasona
ble thing that could have been
wished In such a brief time, when
(he time in which England prepared
Is recalled and It Is remembered
that then the seas were free. Llke
trflae It should be compared with
fee time occupied by us in sending
forces to Salonika.
“When all these are recalled, the
fbrce of America’s master stroke 1s
kQ significant.”
Curious, admiring crowds gather
Everywhere in Paris around the
American soldiers. French potlus
are vastly favorable In their com
ment on the trim American uni
form. the business-like revolver
tangling against the soldier's right
leg and the free, swinging stride
With which the ’'Sammies'* cover
ground.
Paris la also keen for the Atneri
fn navy officers' white uniforms.

DRAFT RULES
PROCLAIMED BY
THE PRESIDENT
f Continued from Page Onei
cess snd wide open to the public
gate
The skeleton of the human lot
tery that fixes upon the men is con
etructed in the rules. The exact
method of the lottery is left for a
la»er proclamation Within a few
weeks the draft will be made. In
military quarters it is stated that
one million nun will be drawn in
the first levy.
Upon proof of their status the
following classes are exempt:
Men indispensable to Industries
that are necessary to the mainten
ance of the military establishments
or the national Interest.
Men with wives, children, parents,
brothers or sisters dependent sole
ly upon them for support.
Members of well recognized re
ligious sects whose creeds forbid
bearing arms students of divinity
and ordained ministers.
legislative, judicial and executive
officers of the United States or the
states of the Union.
Men in the army or navy of the
United States
Aliens who have not taken first
citizenship papers and rubjects of
Germany.
Workmen In the armories, arscn
als and navy yards of the United
States and men engaged In the
transmission of the United States
malls.
Pilots and mariners in the mer
chant marine of the United States.
Criminals convicted of felonies
and the morally deficient
The most vital pow«r—that of
deciding wnlch men are indispenst
hie and the necessary industries —
is placed In the hands of the dis
trict board*. One or more board
is created for each federal district
In the country.
The entire burden of proof for
exemption Is put upon the claimant.
Appeal from the rulings of ihe
tribunals Is provided for in th«
regulations.
As outlined In the rules, the fol
lowing are steps leading up to the
ordering of the men into camp:
A local exemption board of three
members for approximately each
30,<W) of population Is set up Most
of these tribunals are already
formed. In many cases they are
the registration boards.
Other higher boards for each fed
eral Judicial district are rormed.
They are composed of five men of
the highest standing, and known
as district or appellate boards Any
member of either board may be re
moved by the president
On a day to be set the lower
boards meet and organize The
registration cards are secured from
the registration boards which then
cease to exist. The cards are num
bered serially from one up and the
name* and numbers posted In a
public place and given to the press
for publication. At the same time
a copy la sent to Washington.
When every card ta numbered and
posted In every precinct In the na
tion the stage is set for the actual
drawing.
Altho the method is left for an
other proclamation. it is known that
the drawing will take place In
Washington.
After the order In which the men
are called tip for service Is and»
termlned. the quota that each state
must yield up to the armies will he
announced.
The state governors are directed
to divide the quotas among the
count!#* and cities on the basia of
population.
These numbers and names will
again be posted and published and
the men called will be notified by
mall.
Next the "honor men” will be
summoned for physical examination
before the local board. One mem
ber of .each board Is a physician. He
Is ordered to make thu examination
In the presence of another member
of the hoard.
To guard against any unfairness
In the physical exam’natlon the pres
ident mnPca ?n ingenious provision.
Tn case the physician •le«lfn» , te*
any man the board yl’l call
In e anther physician, fie will rr.*\kr
*r.o,;'»v irlnatton In Ignornc- of
the rr;,t isnoft, ’f both r*Vn* rne
*a;n* diagnosis a certificate of dis
qualification will be Issued Mem
bers of the board are barred from
passing upon any relative's case
After the physical examinations
! je finished the board* will take up
rh«* exemption of the cla*«es *pect
tted in the rules.
A claim supported by affidavits
| must be made by men a«kln< ex
emption. (’lalnn upon occupational
qrounds must be made to the dis
trict beard In making claim for
| exemption on the ground <yf a de
' pendent, the claimant must furnish
an affidavit that the lncrtne for the
| support of the dependent is mainly
from the fruit of hi* labor and not
derived from property. He must
bring another affidavit from the de
pendent affirming the dependency
and another from the head of a
! family .stating the *atne grounda.
Within three daya after the affi
davit* are filed the local board must
make its decision Either an abso
lute, conditional or temporary die
charge may be granted
The local board* next report a list
of the men discharged and those
not discharged to the district board, j
Again these name* are posted and
a notice sent to each.
Claim* for exemption upon occu- i
pational grounds must be made to .
the district board within five days ’
after the man is notified that he Is
drawn.
The burden of a double proof 1
rests upon these claimants. They j
must prove that the Industry 1c ■
which they are engaged. Is neces
sary and that they are “indispensl- i
ble” to ita successful conduct.
jg The regulations provide that [
claims may be made upon these j
premises:
That he is actually engaged in a
particular industrial or agricultural
enterprise necessary to the mainte
nance of the military establishment
or the national Interest and that his
continuance therein is necessary to
the maintenance of that industry
and cannot be dispensed with or
replaced without substantial mate
rial loss and detriment of that en
terprise.
Each claim must be supported by
affidavits.
When in the opinion of the hoard
the loss of the man to the industry
outweighs the gain to the military
establishment a certificate of dis
charge wrtll be issued.
Claims for exemption may be
made by wives, parents, children,
employers or any other person for
the man In whom they are Inter
ested.
The boards are empowered to In
vestigate affidavits and claim* ror
exemption with any means at thetr
disposal. •
After the occupational claims are
passed upon the district board will
next review the appeals from low i
er boards Upon these appeals
their decision is final. When it Is
adverse the man wrtll be drafted
into the army.
After all appeals are decided and
occupational claims pettled the dis
trict board will report its list of
eliglbles to the adjutant general of
the state. These are the men that
are to be summoned to the colors
In the fall. They will be notified
by mail.
An appeal from the district board
in occupational claim* to the presi
dent i* provided for But, pending
the decision of the appeal, the
claimant may be summoned to the !
army
In a later proclamation President j
Wilson will create a national board
to hear the occupational appeals.
The draft system is one of equal
ity and fairness. President Wilson ,
explained today In a proclamation
explaining exemption and draft reg
ulations issued today
The text of the regulations cov
ers 7H printed pages Every publi
cation in the lnt»ed States will re

the next few days
His proclamation said

to the direction of the selective ser
vice law. cover the remaining steps
of the plan t r ailing int- «-r lee
of the United States qualified men j

navy, the righting fores* of the na
tion. all of which forces are bnder
the terms of the law placed in a
position of eq ja! right, dign ty and
responsibility with the members of
all other military forces
The regulations hare been drawn j
with a view to the needs and cir- i
cum«tance* of the whole country and
provide a svatem which It Is expect
ed will work with the legst Inequal
ity and personal hardships Any sys
tem for selecting men for military
service, whether voluntary or Invol

which neither favors the one ncr

The successful operation of this
law and of theae regulations depends
necessarily upon the loyalty patriot-
Ism and Justice of the memr.er* of
the boards to whom Its operation is
committed, and I admonish every
member of every local boa rd and of
each district hoard of review that
their duty to their country requires
an Impartial and fearless perform
ance of the delicate and difficult
duties Intrusted to them. They should
remember as to each individual esse

“No, no, ma'am, only motorists,”
the boy stammered. "Father eaya
I’ve to be polite to them, because

Mr*. Taft *eemed disappointed.
"What ia your father's trade, my

“No, ma'am.” said the Utile fellow
