It per mits them to make allotments to other near rela tives. The government agrees to add certain al lowances to these allotments. The act further provides for compensation to men who are disabled in the service and permits in surance to be taken out for the benefit of the men and their dependents. You are probably not familiar with your rights under the law. The Missoula Chapter of the Red Cross will gladly furnish you information and advice in regard to these matters, free of charge. For this purpose an office will be open in the courthouse every Thursday evening at 8 o'clock. This office will be the room just west of the office of the county su perintendent of schools.
