The form below shows where some of the counties stand in the list. When a county has secured Its quota for the army, any further voluntary enlistments will be oeducted from its draft quota. This gives our county an opportunity to fail in line with several counties that are determined that their full quota for the war will be made up entirely of volunteers. Sin gle men between 18 and 40 are ac cepted by tho regular army. If a family has two or more men of mili tary age and one volunteers, this faet will be considered in exempting the others from service. This gives a man a chance to relieve his older or young er brother from the burden of military service. Enlistment For Period of War Only You enlist for this war only. The regular army of the United States needs 70,000 men in order that it may be brought up to war strength. It is important that these men be se- s cured now. Men who volunteer now may choose the branch of service they desire except coast artillery and Cav alry. A man who joins now will receive intensive training and will be in a position for advancement when the new draft army is formed. Registration is no Bar to Enlistment Even though you have registered you may immediately enlist in the regular army. Automobiles should '•arry the slogan “Volunteer before July Ist.” All postmasters have authority to furnish free of charge transportation to the nearest recruiting officer for all men who wish to enlist. Make this campaign a success and give our county and the state of Wisconsin a clean slate in war duty done. Daily av.

SACRIFICES ARE TO COUNT While Soldiers Are Fighting In the Trenches Others May Show fsX* Patriotism Worth While at Home, Madison, Wis. —Although the State Council of Defense was created be cause of the war and goes out of ex istence when that crisis which is fac ing the nation is over, the work It is doing will have an unestimable eco nomic value to the state. If the plans of the council are car ried out,* and with the co-operation which is being given freely by the people there Is no doubt of it, Wis consin will gain over night because of the necessity for economic advance ment what she could not have gained In the ordinary process in years. All Citizens Must Aid. No matter how progressive a state may be—and Wisconsin has borne a reputation of being a progressive state—material growth comes slowly Half the people, or perhaps les9 thar half, are striving always to do more today than they did yesterday, and with still greater hopes for tomorrow. The others, no matter how much they appreciate the results, are apt to ac cept conditions as they are. The work of The state council of de fense along economic lines will be undertaken now because the* nation needs food, and the state must do it? share. The fact that bread is as nec essary as bullets to win a war will be better realized if the conflict is o$ long duration. If Wisconsin increases its acreage so that it can not only feed its own citizens at reasonable prices but also send food to the east and across the water, it will bo doing a service as valuable in its way as the sending of soldiers to figh’ in the trenches. To bring this about the state coun cil is appealing to the producers tc grow more and is trying to enlist more volunters in the army of produ cers. The reports to the state de partment of agriculture have been promising. More potatoes, mort beans and more acres of nearly every thing grown in the ground already i assured for 1917. The planting se; son being nearly over, the next pro! lem will be the harvest. With thou sands of men out of the state, labor also is a problem. 1918 Problem Is Next The state council has department devoted to all these puases of the si; uation. When the crops of 1917 are harvest ed, then comes the work for 1918. It is with this problem that the statt council will work during the winter months. So much for the present. After the war, when Wisconsin goes back to the business of producing its own needs and once more enters into compelitior. with other states for the markets of the nation and of the world, the state which is the best prepared will lead all others. The growth which came over night because conditions demand ed it will not be lost. Wisconsin will have increased millions of dollars in producing wealth. Thousands N>f acres of land will be under the. nio- which WAUSAU PILOT plight hot’ Eav£ been for a decade or mpre. The output of the factories, increased to meet war conditions, will continue because manufacturers will have learned how to economize on time and material. After the war, much as it will cost the state, the lessons of sacrifice will show their worth. GIVES ALL TO HIS COUNTRY The Story of Richard Prokop, Real American, Now on His Way to France. Madison, Wis. —The story of Rich ard Prokop should never be forgot ten in Wisconsin. Private Prokop—he is on bis way to the front as a member of the ar tillery branch of the regular army and soon may be Somewhere In France—may never know or. believe that he Is anything more than a patri otic young man, but his story should be made to live. • When the war is over Wisconsin will possess her quota of heroes who will receive the credit that is their due. Private Prokop probably will be forgotten then. So let his story be told now. This young man—he is only 22—did not know much about America when he left Bohemia four years ago. He had been told that it was a land of opportunity and he came. He worked at farm work four years, and the other day he registered for service. Then he enlisted in the reg ular army for the war. He had saved $650, arid it was in s bank drawing four per cent interest He drew it out and bought S6OO worth of Liberty Bonds, which pay 3L4 per cent interest, but 100 per cent in sat isfaction that the owner is doing something for his country. Private Prokop may give his life for his country, which he has learned to know in four short years as the greatest country on earth. When he went away he said he was glad tc have that opportunity. He has given his savings to Uncle Sam besides. When he left for the front every man In the office of the State Council stood at attention until he had passed through the door. The State Council of Defense says; Give your boy a Liberty Bond, no matter how small, and you will accomplish at least three things. You will teach him the ad vantage of saving, you w ill give him ihe opportunity to be *he proud possessor in later years of a liberty bond, and you will be doing a patriotic act. If you have not subscribed to the Liberty Loan, you should investi gate the opportunity which the Na tional government is offering to ev ery citizen. Uncle Sam offers you an absolutely safe investment draw ing interest at the rate of Sli per cent. The State Council of Defense will furnish information if desired. Matter of Business. “Sir,” aaid the Indignant maid, “what did you mean by kissing me?” “Why, I—er didn’t mean anything,” stammered the young man In the sketch. “Then don’t yon ever do it again,” said the fair party of the prelude. “I don’t allow any man to get osculary with me unless he means business." Happy Thought. Miss Askit —When one sends a par cel by express, why do they always ask the name and address of the send er? Percy Pinklelgh—Why—er —so they'll know where to return It In case it l .—er —lost or stolen, doncher know. ITALIAN IS PATRIOTIC The following notice has been pub lished in a Barron county newspaper, and a copy has been received by the state council of defense. The writer is an Italian, and his no tice to the public proves his patriot ism: “We must thank God above all things, my dear people. He had blessed our flag to be mother of all nations of the earth. Our president, Wilson, he feels strong like a lion. God save him and give him a long life. “We must get together and help the flag by given little means, the best we can, to help to carry on this monster war. Every man living in this coun try should donate SI.OO as it takes 25 to 100 of us to support one soldier, one doctor and one red cross. We must give the soldiers all they need and plenty of everything. They will fight like lions, and God bless them. We don’t want the enemy to get us, but we want to get them! Amen! Amen! “NOTICE —To everyone owing me to come and pay me what you can or bring me anything in the junk line or anything you have to sell and I will donate it to the war fund. If you fail to do so I will donate this to the sher iff to make you pay up, including all costs. Come "in like good people, the nation needs every cent. “NOTICE —To every merchant and prafessional men to save all scrap pa per, newspapers, books, magazines and everything in the junk line. The country needs this. “Have a box or sack to put it in. Call me up and I will come and get it and pay you the best I can. God bless all of you. Amen! Amen! “EUGENE NICOLO BUZZELLI, Cumberland, Wla.” THOUGHT DIDN'T INDICATE. "He is a man of unusual sagacity, Isn’t he?” “Well, I wouldn’t want to say that; be Is a married man.” Talker* Often. The men who say Hard work is sweet, Are those who live On Easy street. Thrilling “Close-Ups." "The old-fashioned hunter of big game used to sally forth with a high power rifle and bore holes through lions, tigers, elephants and other deni* tens of the jungle.” “Modern methods are more humane.” “In what respect?” “The hunter shoots with a camera.” The State Council of Defense ap peals to the producers of Wiscon sin. Their slogan should be: “I will produce more in 1917 and until the war is over.” An increased pro duction means lower prices for the consumer without reducing the rea sonable profit of the producer.
