ferred classification under the proposed amended draft law which
is to .extend the limits of the selective draft to the ages pf eighteen
and forty-five. Such deference, however, will not extend beyond
early next spring. This announcement was made to the house com
mittee on military affairs by Secretary pf War Baker today. , He .
also said that the nere fact that a man was married was not,, gen
erally, a reason for his exemption from call. ,; ' ' '
" There are many married men in this country who ought to
fiuht as freely as single men," said Daker, "and those who do not
support their families and are not engaged in useful occupations will
he called. There will be no general exemption of married men sim- "
ply because they are married."
( )n the subject of the younger youths who will be included in
the draft the secretary of war said that those of eighteen or nine
teen years would probably be placed in deferred classifications. To
this lie added: "But, as General March has told you, the war pro
gram is to put eighty divisions of United States troops into France
lis next June. To do this we shall needjvery unmarried man in
class one between the ages of eighteentiekd forty4i,e years who is
physically fit for service and not retuire8ratMRnleffi pursuits that
j are essential W the winning of the war. We must not, therefore,
' delude ourselves into the belief that the call for our youths of eigh
teen and nineteen can be long deferred. They will have to be called
early in the Spring in order to get their training in time to get to
I'rancc in accordance with our general war program."
