WILLIAM JENNINGS IS VINDICATED [Continued from First Pngc.] the height of the famine there was little or no demand for it and thou sands of householders declined to accept buckwheat sizes, which are only about one grade above coal dirt. Persistent Misrepresentation Notwithstanding these facts the Harrisburg Patriot again to-day per sisted in the effort to convict Mr. Jennings of a violation of the regu lations. Even if the well-known chairman of the Committee of National Defense and safety in this county, who has also been chairman of the Dauphin County Liberty Loan drives and ac tive in all manner of war work, had inadvertently violated some obscure regulation, which he has not done, his friends all over the district be lieve that the great public service he has rendered entitled him to some consideration, especially In view of the fact that such misrepresentation would have a tendency to place him in a false position among those who do not know of his patriotic efforts. His friends everywhere have not forgotten that Mr. ..ennings has two sons in the service in France and that Mrs. Jennings is the head of the Na tional War Aid here. The Fuel Administration lias urged householders who tan use the small er grades of coal to do so. in order to conserve the sizes that are avail able for general domestic purpose, and by the purchase, of buckwheat coal, Mr. Jennings has to that ex-' tent relieved the Perry county mar ket. The amount he bought this year is only one-third his annual re quirements regardless of the fact that he might have purchased under tlie rules two-thirds of that amount in larger sizes.

The rapidity ! with which the men must be called to the colors under the new selective ser vice law, in order to keep the canton ments tilled next month, was empha sized by Provost Marshal General Crowder, who said that the drawing to determine the order in which regis trants were to be called probably would be held on October 2 and the lirst of the new recruits Inducted into the services by October 15. Becuuse of this emergency all of the officials connected witli the com i plicated draft machinery have been called upon to make unusual efforts, not only in registering, but in classi fying under the questionnaire system the 13,000,000 men who are to reg i ister on September 12. It is General I Crowder's hope that this great task of classification may be in its com pleted form by January 1. It will require a steady flow of the new registrants into the camps to meet the program for an Army of 5,000,000 men by next June.

In Chicago, lie said 800 were found and in New York 1,500, besides several hundred deserters from the army.
