MUST BE PRETTY FAIR
SORT OF MAN TO GET
Doctors To Examine Registrants In
Their First Birthday Suit For Ailments,
Diseases, Deformities Or Anything That
May Disqualify Them For Service,
A list of the disabilities on which a
man should be exempted from the se
lective .draft army will be in the
hands of the physicians who arc to
make the physical examinations.
The rules prescribe that all men
presenting themselves for examina
tion must be stripped.
A standard height, weight and
chest measurement is first set forth
for the guidance of the physicians.
These figures range from a height of
five feet and one inch to six feet and
six inches. The standard weight for
a man five feet and one inch tall is
given as 1 IS pounds, his chest deflat
ed at 31 inches and inflated at 33
inches. For a man six feet and six
inches tall the standard weight is 211
pounds, chest 3SJ4 and expansion four
Variations in weight and expansion
arc permissible for qualification as
Height, 61 to 64 inches, a variation
of 8 pounds and 1 inch in chest ex
pansion; 64 to 68 inches tall, 10 pounds
and 2 inches: 58 to 69 inches, 12
pounds and 2 inches; 69 to 70 inches
15 pounds and 2 inches; 70 to 73, 20
pounds and 2 inches; 73 inches and
over, 24 pounds variation in weight
and 2 inches in expansion.
fTo be acceptable for military ser
vice a man below 5 feet and 4 inches
in height, the rules direct, must be
'of good physique, well developed and
"Unless exceptionally well propor-l
tioncd," the rules also say, "men
above 6 feet and 6 inches in height
should be rejected."
Causes For Rejection.
Causes given in the rules for rejec
tion of men for military service in

Legs and feet, varicose veins, pro
nounced knock knees, club feet, web
feet, webbed toes, bunions, overriding
or marked displacement or deformity
of any of the toes; hammer toes.
The rules further admonish the ex
emption boards that the afflictions
listed as disqualifying men for ser
vice must be present in such a degree
as to "clearly and unmistakably dis
qualify the man for military service"
It is the purpose of the government
to release men from service only for
actual disability. This also is appar
ent in a portion of the regulations
which declares that temporary effects
of acute diseases or of any injury arc
not to be regarded as justifying a
finding that the person so affected is
physically deficient and not physically
qualified for military service
Temporary disability of this kind,
however, the rules prescribe, "may be
regarded as justifying a reasonable
delay in completing the physical ex
amination in order that opportunity
for recovery may be afforded."
Many Demand Exemptions.
Judging from telegrams and letters
pouring in by the hundreds on repre
sentatives and senators from States
all over the union, the number of ex
emptions in the drawing of the men
on the selective draft because of oc
cupations essential to the prosecution
of the war is going to be cry much
higher than has been supposed.
A Xcw York member was surprised
recently at a letter from a prominent
soap manufacturer in Xcw York who
pointed out that in all the European
countries at war it has been consider-j
ed vitally essential, as a matter of na
tional sanitation, to keep the soap
factories in full operation.
This flood of applications on top of
the announcement by Secretary of
War Baker that not only would the
first increment of 687,000 and the sec
ond increment of 500,000 men be rais-
War To Cost Each Family
In America $848 A Year
ARE YOU READY WITH
YOUR SHARE OF UNCLE
SAM'S STAGGERING EX
PENSES FOR THE FIRST
YEAR OF CONFLICT?
(By Basil M. Manly)
WASHIXGTOX, August 4. Have
you $848.57 for your Uncle Sam this
That is what he is going to need,
the coming 12 months, from the aver
age American family to pay the stag
gering cost and ordinary government
expenses. Some families will have to
pay more in loans and taxes. Some
will pay much less. Some, who pay
only through indirect taxes, will not
realize just what they arc contributr
ing; but all will pay.
A compilation of the appropriations
passed and pending for the fiscal
year ending June 30, 1918, shows a
total of $16,971,414,291, of which about
$9,250,000,000 has been authorized by
congress, and $7750,000,000 is still to
For each of the 20,000,000 families
in America this means an average ol
$850 in round figures, and for every
man, woman and child an average
What is Uncle Sam buying with
these enormous sums?
The army is the biggest item, with
$2,684,000,000 already appropriated
and $5,000,000,000 more required
$384.22 from the average American
family for the army.
Xcxt comes the cost of loans to the
Allies, $3,007,000,000 already, including
the cost of printing the bonds, etc,
and $2,000,000,000 more to be provid
ed. This will amount in all to a loan
from each American family of $25.35.
Of course, these loans arc the debts
of our Allies, but the money for thcin
TO BE TYPED
MACHINES REPLACE THE
BIG SAVING WILL BE
EFFECTED BY USE OF
THE WRITING MACHINE
(From Tuesday's Daily.)
Aiming to effect a saving o fabout
75 per cent in time and almost that
in space, the county recorder's office
is now transcribing all documents on
a typewriter. Recorder Edith Ruff
ncr has relegated the hand-written
transcript to the past
A wide-carriage machine has been
put in, and one book of records made
on it. Hereafter, as books arc filled
up by hand, they will be replaced or
followed by loose-leaf books, in which
all documents will be typed.
The typewriter does four pages
while the Spcnccrian script covers
Aiming to effect a saving o fabout
one page by the typewriter .that took
nearly four pages by hand. In this
way, there is a saving both of the
time of the deputies and of the sta
tionery. An investigation was made of the
machines which type documents di
rectly into bound books, but it was
found that in order to operate them
succssfully, it is necessary to keep an
expert repair man handy, as the ma
chines get out of order so easily. Sev
eral other county recorders use these
machines, and find them excellent,
but their forces arc composed of men
and include one or two deputies who
arc able to make repairs.
TWO SEEK DIVORCE
(From Friday's Daily.)
Two divorce complaints were filed
in the Superior court yesterday, each
charging desertion. William M. Mc
Call seeks separation from his wife,
Bculah McCall. They were married
in Los Angeles on September 20, 1913.
Andrew Peterson is suing Ramona
Peterson on the same grounds. They
were married in December, 1913, at
cd from the present drawing, but that
the ranks would be kept f"U out ol
the list thus obtained, adds to the cer
tainty that virtually every man who
is registered and has no good excuse
for exemption will find himself in a
uniform unless peace comes sooner
than any one really looks tor.

MISSING GIRL WAS
(From Sunday's Daily)
The disappearance about two weeks
ago from San Diego of Miss Mar
garet Haggott, the 15-ycar-old daugh
ter of Mrs. Martha B. Haggott, is of
local interest, the mother having been
a former resident of Prcscott, a sis
ter of Henry Hartin.
Los Angeles papers arc giving this
affair much publicity, while police
officials throughout Southern Cali
fornia arc moving energetically to find
the missing girl. Mrs. Haggott is
