WASHINGTON, Aug. 18—Renewed
instructions that drafted men who fail
to report for service will be classified
and punished as de.jorters were sent
to United States dlttrict attorneys
and agents of the department of jus
tice tonight by Attorney General
Gregory.
Provost Marslial General Crowder
has ruled that persons who neglect
to appear for examination will be ac
cepted automatically and that the
privilege of claiming exemption will
be denied. It was to help carry this
policy into effect thut the attorney
general acted. His Instructions (ol
low:
"•It has been determined by the
provost marshal general that persons
who faiil to appear for physical ex
aminatlon after having received their
notices to do so from the local boards
by such failure waive their right
to physical exemption and are ac
cepted by the board without exam
ination. Their names will be-certi
fied to the district boards as chosen
by the local boards for the national
army.
Absence Signs Them Up.
"If they do npt then appear to claim
exemption they wiill thereby waive
thft right to such exemptions as they
mffeht have claimed, find their names
will be certified by, the distinct boards
to the adjutant generals of their re
spective states as 'persons for the
national- army. The adjutant gener
al will then mall them a notice to re
port for duty ait a specified time and
place and such notices will be given
publicly according to the regulations
of the conscription Act.
"Such persoifs then become sub
to Ik* military (authorities at the
fill to comply *with this notice, they
become deserters from-the army and
will be treated as 3iich by the mili
tary authorities.
"It is, therefore, a matter of vital
concern, not so much to the govern
ment as to the persons themselves,
to see that they give the correct ad
dress for their notices to be mailed
to them. Should they fail to comply
with these notices after receiving
them, they become automatically
drafted without regard to physical
examination or to exemption or dis
charge.
Jail for Loud Ones.
"Where persons are known to be
wilfully refusing to comply with the
requests of the local boards and are
so conducting themselves as to be a
menace to the proper enforcement of
the conscription act, und their where
abouts are known, they should be de
tained in jail on complaints charging
violations of section 6 of the con
scription act until tli'* time when they
are ordered by the ac'jutant general
to report for duty in the national
army. They should at that date be
turned over' to the Military authori
ties. No prosecution need be had a4
it will be unnecessarily expensive
and tittle is to be gained therefrom."

COUNTY FAIR
SEPTEMBER 4-7
Crawford County Fair at Arion One of
the Next Important Attractions
for All of Our People.
EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD RACES
Program Announced, Together With
Splendid Free Attractions—Ex
hibits Will Be Good.
In another column will be found an
advertisement lor the Crawford coun
ty fair to be held at Arion on Sep
tember 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th. The
management is working hard to make
the fair a success from an entertain
ment point of view, .and Crawford
county citizens-ought to attend the
programs. This may be the last year
for the fair at Arion as there is a
vement to move the Institution to
m1!!ifftririftiUruFiir-tfri^rrji)fWn' flru*'
rattry O. Iff. Criswell is anxfous that
success crown his efforts.
In speaking of county fairs the
Rolfe Arrow says: "Our 'people should
not permit themselves to become so
engrossed in the war and kindred sub
jects as to in any way neglect ample
preparations for the county and
neighborhood fairs this fall. We may
be tempted to think we are too busy
to attend them, but in this we will
commit a grave error.
A county or neighborhood fair, is
not a luxury, not an indulgence, but
one of the most important institu
tions of any community. It is essen
tial to the best interests of the indus
trial life of the community, just as
necessary as is the school to the intel
lectual or churcli to the spiritual life.
Its educational influence is only lim
ited by the energy with which it is
pushed.
In these days when the need is
urgent that production be stimulated
to the maximum, every agency that
tends to arouse enthusiasm and a de
sire to excel should be carefully fos
tered. This the county fair does as
no other institution does or can.
We should bend every energy to
getting together this fall the most
complete that it is possible to as
semble. We will need the stimulus
of the inspiration in the years
A Ford car driven by Henry God
berson turned turtle two miles east
of Vail on last Thursday afternoon,
Injuring Mrs. Godberson and Mrs.
May Miller. Mrs. Godberson had her
right arm broken just above the wrist
and Mrs. Miller suffered a broken
left arm.
Mr. Godberson with his wife and
childreil and sister, Mrs. Miller, were
traveling over the Lincoln Highway
following another machine.- Both of
the cars were going at a moderate
rate of speed. The car ahead- of Mr.
Godberson suddenly turned to go on
another road and to avert a collision,
Mr. Godberson swung his car to the
side of the road which probably caus
ed it to turn over: All of the occu
pants of the car were pinned beneath
it.
It was indeed fortunate that the
injuries were not more serious. The
Godberson children escaped without
a scratch. The car was quite badly
damaged, the top and windshield be
ing broken.
So far the men who got appoints
on the exemption boards as a pleas
ant way of spending their August va
cation, are still looking for rest and
change.
It is a mighty good thing for our
submarines to got practice, but they
needn't get their experience by ram
ming any more heavily loaded excur
sion boats.

Denison's Young Vocalist-Now Taking
Special Lessons in New York—
Friends Gratified at Success
Carl Sibbert, who is taking special
lessons in voice culture in New York
City, is forging to the front and it will
not be a surprise to the Review to
learp that he will soon be singing with
som£ grand opera company. The Oma
ha Bee of August 14th had the fol
lowing to say: "Carl Sibbert, son of
Mr. and Mrs. B. J. Sibbert, of Denison,
Iowa, who has spent the last four
years In Omaha in voice study under
Mrs. Millie Ryan, is now in New York.
He sang Thursday before the Rotary
club, members of which paid him an
unusual tribute by standing and cheer
ing after his encore and continuing
their applause until he walked the en
tire distance across the hall to take
his place at the table by the president's
side.' The Review might add that the
Rotary club is one of New York's most,
exclusive clubs and among its mem
bers are Vanderbiit, Rockefellow,
Judge Garey and Morgan. At Intervals
the Rotary club lias a musical pro
gram, at which time members of the
Metropolitan Grand Opera company
are invited to sing. Carl was called
upon to sing in the place of a member
of this company who was suddenly tak
en ill. His Denison friends will he
gratified to know he is meeting with
success in his musical career. It is
probable that he will spend next year
in Italy, where lie will study under

will not end with this season. Unless
all signs fail, the productive agencies

Woolen Articles.
The Red Cross has urgent call from
Major Grayson Murphy for large quan
tities of knitted woolen articles. This
call is made to prevent the recurrence
of condition last winter when the men
suffered greatly in the frozen trenches
for the want of woolen articles. The
allotment for the Denisou chapter is
300 sweaters. 30" pairs of socks, 300
mTnflers and 300 wristlets. The dif
ferent branch chapters are requested
to get in communication with Mrs.
George McHenry. of Denison, who will
give them instructions relative to this
work.

VANDALS DIS
FIGURE STORE
Clothing Store Front of Curry Brothers
at Seward, Neb., Disfigured by
Rowdyites Last Week.
TO PROSECUTE PERPETRATORS-
Claim Made That.Currys Attempted to
Have Employee Exempted, Thus
Causing III Feeling.
Messrs. John and Will Curry, sons
of Mr. and Mrs. A. T. Curry, of Deni
son, who operate an exclusive cloth
ing store at Seward, Neb., are greatly
exercised over the action of a- crowd
of vandals who painted their store
front a bright yellow on last Thursday
morning.
This act fAlowed the alleged at
tempt of the proprietors of the store,
to secure exemption l'or Paul Becker,
an employee, who is a son of Rev. C.
H. Becker, pastor of the Seward Luth
eran church. It is said that young
1
Becker was married about the time of
regislt}|ation and was drafted. His
name has not yet appeared as exempt"
or accepted, but it was freely said
1
about the city before the painting epl-*
sode that John and Will Curry had en
deavored to aid him in securing ex
emption.
This talk resulted in ill feeling, it is
said, more than half of the population
of the city and country being of Ger-,
man extraction or birth. It aippears .'
that the war talk culminated early on
Thursday morning before daylight, a
groupe of men, said to be unknown
to the authorities, appeared before the
Curry store and proceeded to paint it,
yellow. They were interferred with
before the job was completed, but had
made a considerable showing, never
theless.
Denison friends of John and Will
Curry will be greatly surprised' ov^r
this incident for they are knowp- 'to
be loyal citizens. Undoubtedly..they
were the victims of -gossip not found
ed on facts.
Mc. A. T. Curry left the first of'.the
week for .Seward to yisitihls.sons.' 10
may be possible thait the boys will
