The French hit the line In local at

Here. In tabulated form. The News presents to Chattanooga a careful compilation of the employments viewed ns
"productive" or "non-productive," according to the latest regulations Issued by I'rovost Marshal-Oenernl Crowder to
govern the application of the famous "work or fight" order. Thla is the best and cleareat The News has been able to
devise, after careful study, and with all possible aid In drawing up i he tables of occupations.
The last word, of course, rests with the local draft hoards. But a glance at this table compiled by The News
should afford any man who comes within the draft order a chance to see whether his occupation la classified as product
ive or non-productive.

Telegraph company throughout the
country, called for July S, Newcomb
Carlton, president of the Western
Union, would consent today to make
nothing other than the following state
ment: "None of our employees Is a mem
ber of that union (Commercial Tele-
, graphers' Union of America), which Is
heading the strike movement, so we
do not see how the strike affects us.
1 have nothing to add at this time. If
'I decide on a further statement I will
notify tbe newspnpers." 1
Thci was no dlspostlon In the com
mittee meeting to withhold the power
' requested. The lines would be taken
'over on the same terms ns were the
railroads. The only amendment pro
posed In the committee was one that
would provide for the return of the
systems six months after the procla
mation of peace.
The president Is believed to be ready
to Insist on enactment of the resolution
before recess of congress. In order that
he may have power to cope with the
threotened telegraph strike or any
other contingency that may arise while
congress is not In session.
The committee held another meeting
' this afternoon, to act upon the resolu-
tion. Members sold the final tally

the house interstate and foreign com
merce commission will favorably re
port tho Aswell resolution giving the
president power to take over telegraph,
telephone, cable and radio systems, to
, the house late this afternoon.
Letters from President Wilson, Postmaster-Genera!
Burleson, Secretary of
i War Baker and Secretary of the Navy
Daniels were read to the committee by
Chairman Hlms at its meeting thla
morning. All said they believed the
power granted in the ('solution to be
' necessary to prevent suspension of
service and to guard military secrets
and government communications from
the enemies.

killed in action, 291 were lost at sea. Marine corps casualties
