and took up problems of reconstruc
tion in common with the associated
governments. Immediately ahead is
how diplomatic Washington saw the

. Washington, Nov. 12. The manu
facture of passenger-- automobiles' aft
er January 1st, the date fixed for a
100 per cent curtailment, is likely to
continue because of the sudden col
lapse of the war and the consequent
expected lessening of the govern
ment's steel demands. This is the in
timation given at the war industries
board today. ,
Washington, Nov. 12. The draft
boards have been ordered to stop the
classification of men under nineteen
and over thirty-six and to withhold
questionnaires for such registrants
not already sent out. It was stated
officially at Gen. Crowder's office that
men included in these ages who have
received questionnaires need not fill
. them out.

uation arising from the end of the
war. Railroads and shipping are ex
pected to be placed at the top of the
list and munitions at the bottom.
We are making, a special effort to
collect a ton of tin this month. Mrs.
W. W. Condon has recently turned
over to us nearly two hundred pounds
of tinfoil, which was collected at the
Book Shop. Besides conserving the
tin so much needed at this time, Mrs.
Condon has materially aided the local
chapter of the Red Cross. Save every
bit of tinfoil, collapsible tubes, pewter
articles and deposit them in the barrel
provided for this purpose at the Mar
ion Hardware Co. store. If you can
not bring it, phone 118 and we will
send for it. . W. P. Preer, '
Chairman Conservation ' Committee.

Washington, Nov. 12. By ' order of
the president, Gen. Crowder yesterday
directed the cancellation of outstand
ing draft calls, stopping the move
ment during the next five days of
252,000 men 'and setting aside all the
November calls for over 300,000 men.
Calls for the . navy and marine
corps are "not affected by the cancel
lation. Secretary Baker announced
later that so far as is practical all
men who have been called 'and , have
not yet completed their training will
be immediately turned back -.to civil
life- ,-.;Vw: .' - ': -
Former civilian status in the life
of the nation has been turned over to
the war department and the soldiers
will be returned to their places. It is
understood the work or fight order
will be used largely in filling places
for other men, and each local draft
board will be constituted a central, la
bor office for the district in which it is
situated and will place men where
Demobilization of the armed forces,
return of the nation's mobilized in
dustries to a peace basis, will be
necessarily 4 carefully cafried ' out "in
order to. cause no undue change in the
national life.
Officials here expect that Congress
will be called on soon to consider a
"demobilization bill" which will deal
with this and kindred problems.
The units of the army to remain in
France over the period of settlement
has not been taken up by the war de
partment. It should be realized, of
ficials point out, that even after terms
of peace have been signed a work of
stupendous magnitude will remain.
Millions of tons of material, railroad
equipment as well as arsenal sup
plies, repair and refitting plants and
the strictly military accoutrements
must be collected and invoiced prep
aratory to their disposal by the allied
governments or re-shipment to the
United States. An'army of consider
able size will be needed for this work
for. months after the war has ended.
It has been suggested that the units
to remain in France ror this work
might be obtained , by voluntary en
listment. V ' 1
A small number of men in eastern
states commenced entraining at 6 a.
m. yesterday for cantonments under
the calls and the cancellation came too
late to affect their status. They will
be considered, as in the army until
demobilized. Men not yet entrained,
whether specially inducted or subject
to general call, at the hour set by
the draft boards will be considered
as honorably discharged and so paid.
