to the regulations promulgatd to
outline the operation for an exemp
tion board.
To Name Boards Soon.
Appointment of these boards to sift
out the exempted men will be an
nounced probably tomorrow.
The plan is to appoint county offi
cials throughout the nation for this
work.
In the District the Commissioners
probably will designate the exemption
Board which will sift out of the names
drawn the estimated 2.S00 out of the
thousands who registered here yester
day for the District quota to the first
conscript' army.
The nrst drawing of registered
names will begin within two weeks
ir present plana are carried out Be
fore the drawing la made the names
of all men specifically exempted from
military service will be withdrawn
from the list. This number Includes
men who have lost legs, arms, or
eyes, and ministers, 'divinity students,
and othera who will escape conscrip
tion.
Examinations Come First.
After the first drawing a physical
examination will be held to remove
the physically unfit.
Thta will take at least half the first
number drawn, according to the esti
mate or the general staff.
After the physicians' exemptions,
the exemption board will pass upon
the claims of married men with de.
pendent families, farm and industrial
worka and others who will be excused
from military service. The District
exemption board will probably receive
special Instructions to excuse from
service all Government officials and
clerks In Washington whose services
to the Government are considered
more valuable at their desks than In
the field.
War Department officials estimate
that lt will be necessarv to draw
2.000.000 names or one-fourth the
number registered yesterday to get
the first army of S25.00O. Out of this
2.000, 1,000,000 will be exempted on
physical grounds. This Is considered
a low estimate, as less than one in
four applicants are accepted as re
cruits to the regular army Out of
the remaining million lt Is estimated
thst nearly half will be exempted
from the first draft on other grounds.
Volunteers Fill Ranks.
Gains In regular army and National
Guard recruiting are such that officials
now believe It will be unnecessary to
employ conscription to fill the ranks of
these orgsnlzations to wsr strength.
The regular army today lacks but
&-'.u or Its war strength of 293.004. The
total strenrth of the national eui-rt
der war conditions as reported today Is
204.9M. which Is 124.000 short of w.r
strengtn oi ui,n Kecrultlng drlies
will be organised at once in most
branches to fill the rangs before the
first conscripts are drawn.

Veterans Offer
Great Weapon Made for Confederacy Lie in
Potomac Ooze They Would Have It
Sent to War.
To illustrate that the country is united in the war against
Germany, Secretary of the Navy Daniels, in his address on the
Monument Grounds yesterday, said he had been told of the
hiding place of the biggest gun made for the Confederate navy
and had been asked to send the weapon overseas "to pay the
respects of the Confederate veterans
to the enemy."
Secretary Daniels said only two
men In the world know the present
hiding place of the gun, himself and
the Confederate veteran who told him.
"During the war between brothers
more than half a century ago," said
Secretary Daniels, "the men In the
Confederate navy manufactured the
biggest gun the world had ever seen
up to that time.
"This gun was made especially fox
the purpose of being sent to Wash
ington to blow tip the Capitol and
the other buildings here.
"It waa mounted on a big- ship and
started toward Washington. The
Union navy learned of the plan, and
frustrated It.
"To prevent the gun from falling
Into the hands or Union sailors or sol
diers, the Confederates sank It,
"The manufacture, the mission, and
the sinking of this great gun remain
ed a secret until a Confederate veter
an came to me and told me of it.
"He told me he waa the only man
In the world who knew where the gun
was hidden In the Potomac river. At
hla request I accompanied him down
the river and be pointed out the place
where the gun waa sunk. ,
"He told me the Confederate veter
ans wanted me to dig the big bronse
gun out of the mud In the river,
mount It on a United States naval"
vessel and send It across the seas to
pay the respects of the Confederate
veterans to the enemy."
