How to Tell Who Is Called
By City's Exemption Boards
if Your "Red Ink" ?Number Is Higher Than the Number
of Registrants in Your District You
Are Not Called
The following tables will enable any man in New Tatk who has been
called by his exemption board to learn that fact.
Th$ names of individuals called are not given, since there will be a
total of somewhere near 80,000 in this cify. which would fill nearly forty
pages o? small type. The city itself will print the entire list of nam?sa
?vhen all districts have issued their calla, and "The City Record," with the
list, can then be puschased for a nominal sum
All who are called will be officially notified of the fact by mail. The
following tables are published to permit those who may be in any doubt to
\erify their status.
It should be remembered tha* th*? fart that a man is not included in
the call by no m?*ans excludes him. Further calls will be made when the
army is increased, and to fill gaps in the ranks, so that if the war lasts
long enough every man on the draft list will be liable to service unless he'
ccn prove valid ground for exemption.
The first table shows the highest draft number called in all districts
which have completed their call. The highest draft number called is in
every case far above the total number of men called in the district, be?
cause of the high numbers which has been treated as blanks. The swond
table shows the draft numbers and their corresponding "red ink" numbers.
Red ink numbers" above 4,69"*, the highest in New York, being omitted.
To find whether he has been called, a man should learn from the first
table the highest number called in his district. He should then consult
the "red ink" numbers in the right-hand columns of the second table. If
his own number does not appear before he reaches the highest draft num?
ber for his district he has not been called.

Cowards To Be Weeded Out
Of U. S. Army by Specialists
Some of America's foremost spe?
cialists are to apply the most modern
methods of science to the new United
ia Army in un ?ffort to make it the
most'Ievel-headed, nerveless outfit that
ever "went over the top" or stood fast
under fire. A single panicky rookie is
recognized as a grave danger to a com?
pany, and science beiieves it can fore?
stall that individual panic about six
times out of seven.
It is generally recognized that no
man remains normal when under fire
for the first time, few the second time
and many for the third end fourth
The man whose reactions to abnormal
conditions completely overcome his will
power used to be called a coward. If
his reactions continued to evade or
overcome his mental strength he was
drummed our. of camp or met a more
violent fate.
Mental hyriraiata and nerve special?
ists have differentiated types of "cow?
ards" and turned the well worn storv
of the craven who became a hero wrong
side out to see the wheels go 'round.
The result is that despite the earnest
testimony of ancient top sergeants the
coward, in scientific phraseology, is
virtually extinct.
There are, indeed, defectives of vari?
ous kinds and grades, but the majority
of them can now be classified and neat?
ly labelled, and many of them respond
to treatmen?.
The task of the doctors who are to
?ee to it that the new army is sound
in nerves us well as in wind and limb
is to sort out and classify the?.

the specialists und the first draft of
the new army will fill sixteen training
camps with some 10,000 men apiece, the
job looks hopeless on th?.- face of it.
The characteristics of the men who
need examination, however, betray
them. For the most part they are
types which will get into trouble in
one way or another under the strict
discipline of a military cantonment.
