Explaining the new regulation, Genv
eral Crowder said: \
?'The war has so far disorganize*^.
the normal adjustment of industrial i
man power as to prevent the enor?
mous industrial output and national
organization necessary to success.
"There is a popular demand for or?
ganization of man power, but no
nirect draft could be imposed at
present. ,
"Steps to prohib?* idleness and
non-effective occupation will be wel- |
corned by our people."
Must Work or Fight
"We shall give? the idlers and men
not effectively employed the choice
between military service and ef?
fective employment. Every man, in
the draft age at least, must work or <
light.
"Tins is not alone a war of mili?
tary man?uvre. It is a deadly con
test of industries am! mechanics.
Germany must not be thought of as
merely possessing an army; we must
think of her as being an army an
army in which every factory and
loom in the empire is u recognized
part, of a complete machine running
night and day at terrific speed. We
must make of ourselves the same
sort ci' effective machine.
"II is enough to ask what would
happen if every man in the nation
turned his hand to effective work.
We must make ourselves effective.
We mus! organize for the future. We
must make vast withdrawals for the
army and immediately close up the
rank's of industry behind the gap with
an accelerating production of every
useful thine; in necessary measure.
How ir. this to be done'.' The answer
is plain. The lirst step toward the

and th 11 r. induce ana persuade the
vas* wasted excess into useful fields.
Possibilities of Improving Draft
"The very situation we are now
considering, however, offers ereat
possibilities m improving the draft,
as well as great possibilities for the
composition of the labor situation by
effective administration of the draft.
Considering the selective service
law, we see two principal cases of
deferment to tjie call to military ser?
vice?exemption and the order num?
ber, assigned by lot. The exemp?
tions themselves fall into two conspi?
cuous categories, dependency and
industrial employment. One protects
domestic relations, the other the eco?
nomic interests of the nation. Be?
tween the two there is an inevitable
hiatus, for it is demonstrably true
'hat thousands, if not millions, of
dependency exemptions have no ef?
fect of industrial deferment what
c \er.
"(.?ne of the unanswerable criti?
cisms of the draft has been that it
takes men from the farms and from
?II useful employments and marches
them past crowds of idlers and loaf?
ers away to the army. The remedy
is simple to couple the industrial
has:, with other grounds for exemp?
tion and to require that any man
pleading exemption on any ground
shall also show that he is -contribut?
ing effectively to the industrial wel?
fare of the nation.
"The regulation itself makes plain
the determination of the War De?
partment. The great organization of
local and district boards which ha.
already accomplished a notable work,
may be relied upon to catch the
spirit of the movement and sorely

Draft Test Case
Will Fix Status
Of Ball Players I
WASHINGTON', May 23.?Whether
the new "work or fight" army draft reg?
ulation announced to-day shall apply to
professional baseball players. and ;
thereby probably put the big lcapuc.
out of business for the period of the?
war, will not be decided until the point
is raised on appeal to the provost mar?
shal general's office after the regula?
tion becomes effective July 1.
The War Department was bombarded
with queries on the siib.lect soon after
the new regulation was made public.
At first it was indicated that ball play
ers certainly would be classed among
those in non-useful occupations who
must seek new jobs or go into the
army. Provost Marshal General Crow?
der announced, however, that there
would be no decision until a case arose
through official channels
Later the War Department issued
this formal statement:
"No ruling as to whether baseball \
players or persons engaged in golf, ten?
nis or any other sport come under the'
regulations regarding idlers or non
essential pursuits will be made until a
specific case has been appealed to the
Provost Marshal General's office."
Secretary Baker explained that the
status of baseball players had been
discussed before the regulation was I
approved, and it was agreed that the
question could not be disposed of until i
all the facts relating to the effect upon |
the baseball business had been brought !
out through the hearing of a case ap?
pealed from a local hoard.

The hostile artillery was active last night in the Ancre Valley, south
of Lens, east of Robccq and east of the Forest of Nieppe.
Artillery Active South of Avre, Paris States
PARIS, May 28.? The War Office to-day gave out the following:
NIGHT. The artillery activity was intermittent at various points
sauth of the Avre, but no infantry action took place.
On May 20 an enemy machine was brought down in an aerial engage?
ment. It is confirmed that eight German machines were destroyed by our
pilots, one on the 16th, another on the 16th, and six on the 19th, in addi?

On May 20 and the night following our bombing escadrilles dropped
17,000 kilos of projectiles in the region of St. Quentin, Noyon and Tergnier;
on the stations at Peronne, Rosi?res and Nesle, r.nd on the aviation ground
at Villeselve. Two big fires caused by explosions broke out at St. Quentin
and Nesle.
On May 21 and the night of May 21-22 our airplanes dropped 30,000
kilos in the same regions, causing new fires. Cantonments and stations in
the region of Ville-au-Bois, Hirson, Le Gateau and Aulnoye received in
the same period 11,000 kilos of explosives. Italian machines took part in
these expeditions.
Gunfire Heaviest in Kemmel Region, Says Berlin
BERLIN, May 28.?German General Headquarters to-day ga?ve out
the folloiving:
DAY. In the Kemmel region the increased artillery activity continues.
On the other battlefronts fighting activity was not revived yesterday until
evening, and then only on some sectors.
During the night there was lively activity on the part of the French
on the western bank of the Avre. Frequent attempts by the enemy to ad?
vance were repulsed and prisoners were taken during our reconnoitring
operations.
The enemy's aerial attacks against Belgian territory, which have in?
creased in frequency recently, have inflicted heavy damages and losses
on the civilian population, but no military damage has been caused.
Bombs have been dropped successfully on large enemy munition depots
northwest of Abbeville, which were destroyed. Bombs were also dropped
on Paris.
Italians Entered Village, Rome Reports
ROME, May S3.?The Italian War Office has made public the fol?
lowing :
On the mountain front both artilleries were active. Hostile parties
were driven back in Val Arsa. On the slopes of Sasso Rosso there was
bomb fighting.
An enemy attack at Capo Silc bridgehead was repulsed. At Cava
zuccherina we drove back an enemy outpost and destroyed the defences.
Five enemy 'planes were brought down. An aviation camp near Motta
di Livenza and troops or. the march, as well as a wagon transport on Asiago
Plateau, were effectively bombarded.
(May 22.) Along the mountain front the activity of our rcconnoissance
parties continues with profit. South of Asiago a British patrol penetrated
the enemy's lines and brought back some prisoners. Our assault troops
captured an outpost northeast of Monte di Valbella and entered the vil?
lage of Staccareddo, where they inflicted losses on the enemy garrison and
blew up an ammunition dump.
The action of both artilleries was fairly intense east of Pointe-di Piave,
and at Zenson our tire against hostile batteries was particularly effective.
The activity of our own <ind Allied airmen was considerable, and eight
enemy machines were brought down.

know how seriously application of the
rule to professional ball players would
affect the leagues. He did not know
that a large majority of the major
league players were of draft age and
were exempted only because ?of de?
pendents, but on the contrary was un?
der the impression that most of them
were outside the draft limits.
The paragraph of the new regula?
tion which may touch the ball players
is a subdivision of the enumeration of
classes affected, and says:
"Persons, including ushers and other
attendants, enpaped in and occupied in
and in connection with games, sports
ami amusements, excepting actual per?
formers in legitimate concerts, operas
or theatrical performances."

Military Comment
By William L. McPherson
LIEUTENANT GENERAL BRIDGES, the chief of the British Mili?
tary Commission in this country, is credited in "The Evening
Sun" with the prediction that the third drive of the present
German offensive will begin on June 1 next and will be directed by
General Mackensen. Mackensen has not yet appeared on the Western
front. If he appears next week, the "Eastern group," now controlling
the German High Command, will have played in Flanders and Picardy
the last card of Eastern strategy.
The Easterners have been completely in the saddle for some time
past. At their head are Hindenburg and Ludendorff. The most impor?
tant r?les in the great offensive of March 21 were intrusted to three
generals transferred from the Eastern front?von Hutier, von Marwitz
and von B?low. Von Hutier had invented a new storming formation
_>nd tried it out with marked success at Riga. He broke the lines of
the British Fifth Army, west of St. Quentin, and thus made the progress
of his own forces west as far as Montdidier a mere matter of keeping
close at the heels of an enemy who required a good deal of elbow space
in order to consolidate and reorganize?.
To von Hutier's left was von Marwitz, also a veteran of the Galician
y.r.d Balkan campaigns. He profited by the breach made by his colleague
and pushed without much difficulty across the old Somme battlefields
toward Amiens and Albert. Next to him on the north was von Biilow,
who had distinguished himself in East Prussia, Poland and Courland
and on the Southeastern front. Von Biilow accomplished less because
he faced the very strong Allied positions in the Arras sector.
Mackensen is greater in reputation than any of thesef Perhaps he
was too big a figure to be summoned at once, because he had to be
subordinated not only to Hindenburg and Ludendorff, but also to the
two hereditary figureheads who have divided the Western command
between them?the Crown Prince William of Prussia and the Crown
Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria.
Mackensen rose to fame at the Dunajec, where he smashed his
"phalanx" through the Russian line midway between the Carpathians
and the Vistula River fortresses in Poland. The big Russian West front
salient crumpled and the Grand Duke Nicholas began a retreat which
ended only at the line of the Dwina and the Pinsk marshes. Mackensen
next directed the campaigns which crushed Serbia and thrust the Ru?
manians out of the Dobrudja and Wallachia. Recently he has been
inactive, and there were rumors that he had been sent to Aleppo to
organize a counter attack against Jerusalem. Should he appear in the
West, it will be evidence that Germany has pretty well cleaned up for
the present on all her Near Eastern military ventures and has thrown
everything she has into her present Western offensive.
In our Civil War, on the Northern side, the West was the training
school of successful generals. The East, on the contrary, was the grave
cf military reputations. With Germany in this war it has been just
the reverse. The East has offered all the golden opportunities. The
West has blasted career after career. No German general who figured
prominently in the Marne campaign remains on the scene. Yet Foch,
who won glory there, has now become the Allied generalissimo.
In two senses, therefore, Eastern and Western strategy will come
again to a spectacular clash when the third phase of the German West?
ern offensive opens.

Havoc in German City
Twice Raid Mannheim, Starting Five Fires and Destroying
Poison Gas Factory?-Bomb Lorraine Stations
and Attack Docks at Bruges
LONDON, May 23. British flier.
i twice have bombed the German city of
Mannheim, can. iiipr in all live large
tires and creating widespread havoc,
(specially in the chlorine poison gas
factories there. The first attack was
'. Tuesday night and the second Wednes- i
]: day night.
In addition, on Tuesday and Wednes- |
day a day and night of unceasing activ- j
ity, large conflagrations were caused
near Liego, the railway there and sta- j
.lions in German Lorraine were dam-;
aged and an important electric power
station at Kreusewald was injured.
The Metz-Sablon railway station, air
dromes and docks at Bruges and a
train on which several direct hits were1
made were other targets. The intense |
British air attacks in the immediate vi
cinity of the front were continued with
good results.
The statement to-night on aerial op?
erations says;
"Our airplanes continued on Wednes?
day their artillery work, 'photography
and bombing. Airdromes used by the
enemy's night-flying machines were re
attacked, eighteen tons of bombs being ;
dropped on these and on hostile billets.
"Thirteen German machines were
brought down in fighting. Two were
brought down out of control and an- ?
other by gunfire. Three British air?
planes are missing.
"Four tons of bombs were dropped
on the very important electric power
station at Kreusewald. cast of Saar?
br?cken. One bomb struck the boiler
house and another caused a large
cloud of steam to arise from one build
ing. All the British machines re?
turned.
"The Metz-SablOn railway station
was heavily bombed at il o'clock in the
morning of Thursday. Bombs were seen
to burst in the engine sheds and on the
railway. The hostile gunfire \f_ts con-!
siderable, but all the machines returned:
safely."
"After dark eleven tons of bombs ?
were dropped on hostile airdromes,
docks at Bruges and billets in the ?
Somme area. Several direct hits were
made upon a train, causing it to burst
into flame?.
"Mannheim was again attacked.
Twenty-four hcavv bombs were dropped
on a chlorine factory there, causing
two large tires. The blackene.d girders
of buildings gutted by the fires caused
by the bombing of the preceding night,
were clearly visible in the moonlight."
In aerial' fighting Tuesdav British
aviators destroyed sixteen German air?
planes and two observation balloons,
and drove down two airplanes out of
control. Bombing of military targets
behind the German lines continued ac?
tively and the latest official statement
on aerial operations says that 1,200
bombs were dropped during the day
and more than twelve tons at night.
The statement reads:
"Reconnoissances and bombing by
our airplanes continued uninterrupted?
ly Tuesday. Some 1,200 bombs were
dropped on various targets, including
four of the enemy's large airdromes
near Ghent and Tournai and billets
in the neighborhood of Armentieres,
I-upaume and Bray.
' "A good deal of fighting again too_
place around our bombing machines
Sixteen German airplanes were de
I stroyed and two driven down out oi
-ontrol. The observation balloons alsc
were destroyed. Three of our air
planes ara missing.
"During the night both ours and tht
enemy's bombing airplanes were ac
i live. Over twelve tons of bombs wen
dropped on airdromes used by tin
enemy's night-flying machines and ot
billets at Bray and Bapaume. All ou;
' machines returned. Two German ma
j chines were brought down by gunfin
| behind our lines.
"Two tons of bombs were droppec
| on a chloride factory at Mannheim
| causing three large fires, and anothei
! two tons on railway stations at Thion
; ville and Karthaus. One of our ma
chines failed to return.
"At dawn Wednesday two formations
j set out on a long distance -raid tc
I bombard the important railway triangle
; at Li?ge. All the machines reachei
; their objectives and dropped twenty
two heavy bombs. Those dropped b>
the first formation caused three verj
large fii-.s, which were burning fiercel>
three-quarters of an hour later wher
the second formation flew over Liege
Other machines dropped twelve heavy
bombs on the railway stations at Metz
All the machines returned."
The series of raids carried out bj
British airmen in the last week shows
?says the "Daily Mail," that the ait
service is best in cultivating the
offensive spirit, it continues:
"As the British air forces develo}
we shall be able to reach every cit>
of western and central German:
and compel the enemy to weaken hi:
front greatly by detaching large ai
forces for defense at home. The Ger
man staff is well aware of this risk
i which will increase greatly when th>
I American air forces have arrived ii
? strength later this year.
''Hence, the enemy is certain to at
1 tempt to paralyze us by negotiations
: He could accomplish no more brillian
stroke than to get us to abandon raid
| for a promise that he would do th
j same, which promise would be re
pudiated at the first convenient mo
? ment. But the fast growing strengt
I of the Allies in the air will be use
? with increasing vigor and will play
very large part in bringing the wa
home to the German nation."
Berlin Now Discusses
How to End Air Raid
BERLIN, May 23.?Replying to
question as to whether air raids o
i towns could not be stooped by a
I agreement, Chancellor von Hcrtlin
said to-day that no definite proposals
had come from the enemy.
Should this happen, he said, the mili?
tary authorities would be first charged
with an examination of the proposals
