BEING ROUNDED UP
Many States in Search for Men of Draft Age Who are Citizens Great Britain or Canada. State after state has taken up the search for "alien slackers" by public declarations of their defense coun cils. Illinois, Indiana and Michigan were the first, but as opportunity offers other states, including Wyo ming, have taken up the matter, and labor unions and employers are joined in prodding or encouraging men to volunteer for fighting under the flag they claimed as reason for exemption from Uncle Sam's draft. In this city recruiting is being aided by: The opening for recruiting for the Royal Flying corps has brought to the various depots of the British-Can adian recruiting mission men of Can adian or British citizenship who were disinclined to serve with British bat tle tanks, or infantry, forestry, rail way construction, artillery, medical corps or inland water transport serv ice. For all of these branches of serv ice men are promised comfortable barracks, with plenty to eat—no meatless or wheatless days. In every branch there are real opportunities to advance quickly. Canadian soldiers are paid $1.10 per day, with $25.00 per month for dependant, and additional sums from western relief and Ameri can Red Cross. "Where are the 430,000 men of British military age who were re vealed by the exemption claims when the United States put into effect its draft," said Col. J. S. Dennis, second in command of the mission in the United States. "There have been not more than 17,000 recruits from among the 300,000. "The others, if they ever expec-t to claim the right to call themselves sons of Britain, must volunteer now to fight under the flag they claim or register a reason why they cannot." "Do you know that your country is at war and that the United States of America is no place for any of you who are of military age, when the United States is at war and sending the cream of her manhood to fight side by side with your brother coun trymen? Perhaps you are content to slack here while men twice your age —fathers of families—are fighting for you; also the boys of United States of America. Are you going to be a slacker and have these men fight for you? Or is it that you are a man without a country? If it is that you are a married man, let us tell you that your wife and children are adequately looked after. Perhaps it is because you have a good job. If so, we want to tell you that the boys of Britain, Canada and also the United States had good jobs when they were called to defend their country against the enemy. We ask you to search your heart and your conscience and ask yourself if you are "playing the game to either your 'na tive or adopted land. If you can not "come across" to the call from your native land in her great hour of need, you are certainly not fit to be a citi zen of the United States. "Don't be a slacker; come and pre sent yourself to L. E. Jones, British Canadian recruiting officer at Glas gow, Montana. We will give you a glad hand and get you into the world's series.

BADGER l'ICKUPS. A decided change in the weather since last writing and unfortunately for the worse. A. C. Vertz and family were over to Ole Craving's Sunday to see the new baby. Rev. P. A. White and wife and daughter, Mrs. Fitzgerald and chil dren were visiting at J. L. Byer's on Friday. A. C. Vertz is having his share of bad luck, having lost a nice colt, calf and a hog recently. Quite a number of people are com plaining about losinp so many chick ens this winter. Don't know wheth er it's from lack of feed or warmth. One man reported eighteen left from a flock of seventy; another fifteen from a flock of forty-seven; another said he had eighty-two this fall and last report he only had nineteen, etc. If very many people are having such luck the price of chickens and eggs will be higher than ever this spring. Mr. John Hapstead lost his flloek in rather a novel way. He had a very good chicken house, but one evening not long ago he thought he would help the chickens warm up their night's quarters, some, so he took a pail full of hot coal embers and put in the chicken house. Next morning while doing his chores he smelleil a very offensive odor, hurrying to the chick en house a sad scene met his view, for there lay thirty-four of his thirty six chickens dead, caused from the poisonous gas arising from the coal ashes and no means of escape. This was very unfortunate for Mrs. Hap stead, for she hadn't lost any pre vious to this and had been getting eggs about all winter. Rev. P. A. White attended church in Glasgow Sunday, returning Mon day. Quite a number attended the dance at the Will Lange place Saturday night. A little baby boy arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Hapstead a few lays ago. Mother and babe do ing nicely. Mrs. Bernt Hammer visited at Ben Boreson's on Sunday. Fred Ruppel, Harmon Layne, Luth er Byer, Andre Tvesto, Adrain Vertz and others were sightseeing in Glas gow Saturday. We think most of them were seeing about getting feed, and as the amount was decidedly lim ited, they'll have to go sightseeing again in the near future. Ole Bronstead was out Monday try ing his new skeis, and for a side issue was inquiring for straw. Mrs. Vertz took her little son, Iver, to the dentist Saturday to have a tooth extracted. We were very sorry to hear of the death of the little infant child of Mr. and Mrs. Forrest Foust, which died very suddenly at their home near Tampico on Friday night. + RED CROSS NEWS + When solicited for a donation to the Red Cross, a farmer 'iving near Lilly, S. D., announced that he would donate a wagon of corn if women from the Lilly branch would come out and do the husking. They accepted the offer immediately and braving sub zero weather all of them worked all day at the husking, not stopping at one load, but filling three wagon boxes before night. triple j * * * J Despite repeated letters written j from northern division headquarter? disclaiming all responsibility on the J part of the Red Cross for chain letter schemes of raising money such let - j ters continually pour into the office! with requests for verification. The Red Cross will not sponsor any such idea for raising money since there is no assurance that it will be devoted to the purpose for which it is raised. Professional and business men garbed in white coats and caps, are busy every Tuesday and Friday even ing at Morris, Minn., devoting their energies to the making of surgical dressings. The work of enlisting the men into active service in the manu facture of dressings was begun only fortnight ago but already a good percentage of the male population of the city are at work. In many fam ilies husbands and wives have joined the classes and are working together. * ♦ * Red Cross officials at Benedict, N. D., have decided to report to head quarters the failure of Knut Christen son, national nonpartisan league or ganizer, and John Dunaway to sub scribe to the Red Cross during the re cent drive. So far as can be learned they are the only men in Benedict who failed to subscribe. Christensen is said to have declared that he could not afford a dollar for the Red Cross, that he feared the money would be misapupropriated. * * * Full information regarding the con dition of soldiers who are taken ill or are injured in camps in the United States is to be transmitted to their families by the Red Cross, through the suggestion of Secretary of War Baker. The secretary submitted a plan for carrying out this work in the follow ing letter to the American Red Cross headquarters: "Gentlemen: Since the American Red Cross has already established in France, in accordance with an army order, a service to keep families in America in personal touch with their boys, ill or wounded in the field, it is suggested that this service be extend ed to the camps in the United States. "American Red Cross representa tives at the camps here, as in France, would have access to daily lists of ad missions and evacuations from the hospitals, and, so far as it is in accord with necessary medical rules, would be allowed to talk with sick men. They would be expected to keep fam ilies constantly informed as to con ditions and progress of men in hospi tals, to write letters for men unable to write themselves, and in general to fullfill that clause of the Red Cross charter which designates the society as a medium of communication be tween troops in the field and their families at home." * * * Appropriations for relief work in France have now been made by the American Red Cross war council, cov ering the period since the United States entered the war and up to April 30, 1918 amounting to $30,519, 2fi0. Of this sum $14,019,890 was appropriated for military relief. The principal appropriations for military relief are for hospitals, dis pensaries and nursing service, $1,253, 700; $1,671,789 for canteen service for the French and American soldiers; $3,119,000 for hospital supply service, for 3,190 hospitals on the original list and those that are being added at the rate of 100 a month. For the surgi cal dressings service, $1,963,925 was appropriated for communication, rest stations, recreation and welfare ser vice for American and allied armies, $1,062,865; for revitaillement service for American army including portable kitchens, ice plants and supplies other than medical, surgical and recrea tional, $4,263,385. For artificial limbs and re-educa tion of mutilated soldiers the appro priation amounted to $607,880; for casual reporting service, oxygen serv ice, investigation and relief, laundry, disinfecting articles for Christmas comfort bags and general supervision, the appropriation was $529,389. The total appropriation for civilian relief was $9,556,482; for the chief items in civilian aid for 11,000 i*efu gee families was $2,867,866. The appropriation for care and prevention of tuberculosis was $2,147,327; for the care of babies and children, $1, 149,130; for general relief in six dis tricts including reconstruction of vil lages, for farm implements etc., $2,709,740. The appropriation for the care of repatriated French citizens, the assist ance of American organizations, and general supervision was $230,376, for automobiles and cameons to establish supply distribution system in France, in view of the crippled condition of railroads, together with operating ex penses, dock rentals, garages, etc., $2,536,657, for department engineer ing construction, insurance, ware house operations, rent, etc., $882,884 was appropriated. The appropriation made for the re French soldier's families amounted to $1,000,000, for American ambulances, $400,000, for friend's reconstruction work and war victims relief, $215,971, and for emergency purposes, Red Cross health center, foodstuffs, Nor ton Harjes' ambulance unit, etc., the appropriation amounted to $1,969,375. In addition to this, appropriations of $7,063,649, have been made for the purchase of supplies in the United States, for shipment to France. As soon as these supplies have been dis tributed, the various appropriations therefore, will be credited to the bud Rets of the commission to France, to which they respectively belong. • » » Home Service Work of Funds are Required Budgets for other work may be drawn from surplus general manager points out. The following letter has been re ceived by F. T. Heffelfinger, division manager, from H. D. Gibson, general manager of the American Red Cross: "It has come to my attention that there is apparent reluctance on the part of some chapters, whose funds are limited or have been very liberally used for various other purposes, to make appropriations for home serv ice, even when the opportunity for such expenditure, wisely and help fully, is apparent. Whenever an individfiujl chapter feels unable or unwilling financially to undertake home sen-ice, you are authorized to state to the chapter concerned that its funds should be used, so far as needed, for the welfare of the families'of soldiers and sailors in that community, even if the result must be the curtailing of work along other lines. The only Red Cross funds available for home service are those of the chapter itself, whereas the sur plus funds of all chapters can be used, if necessary, for general relief sup plies. Don't Neglect Home Service. "It should be made definitely cer tain that a chapter with funds, no matter how limited, should not neg lect its home service obligations, be cause to do so will likely cause the families of soldiers and sailors there to suffer privation or to oblige them to sacrifice health by reason of over work, or unsuitable work, or to apply to public or private charities." ♦ * * Red Cross Raffles are Under Ban of Law In a number of instances Red Cross organizations, with no thought of vio lating the law, have authorized raf fles as a means of collecting Red Cross funds. The question of the legality of these raffles has been raised and the divi sion office has been assured by com petent authority that raffles undoubt edly are lotteries within the meaning of the law as enacted in all the states within the division. Chapters and their branches are cautioned therefore not to authorize the raising of money by this means. * * * Stripes and Emblems to be Given Workers in Token of The northern division, in an effort to reward the services of those wo men who have given generously of their time for Red Cross purposes, has decided to adopt the following rules regulating the use of the Red Cross emblem and the service stripe. It has been decided that at the end of 32 hours spent in service in the Red Cross workroom a woman may wear upon her apron the Red Cross emb lem, and at the end of 72 hours she may add a red cross to the front of her cap, and at the end of 128 hours she may wear a service stripe about two inches long and one-half inch wide on the pocket of her apron, this it stripe to be made of some red ma terial These regulations govern all hours of service spent in surgical dress ings workrooms, in hospital garment workrooms and all other workrooms unc ' er the supervision and govern men t of Red Cross organizations Credit for Knitters. Realizing also that knitters deserve recognition of their services, the fol lowing schedule has been adopted to govern their work: For each sweat er that is turned in a woman shall receive credit for 16 hours of work; for each pair of socks, 14 hours; for each pair of wristlets, 7 hours; for each helmet, 14 hours; and for each scarf, 8 hours. If the chapters in the division, as a whole, will adopt this schedule it will aid in maintain ing uniformity throughout the entire division and will eliminate to some extent the friction caused when one chapter gives the same reward for less work than another.

TRACTOR OWNERS ASKED TO KEEP EXACT RECORDS There are a great many farmers in the county, who own farm tractors, and who still consider the use of the tractor as more or less of an experi ment.

In compliance with this need the Montana experiment station, has pre pared t simple record book, which I will furnish free of charge to farmers providing they will agree to keep the record through the year, and later loan it to the station for the purpose of study.

The telephone company is now serving a "Saturday afternoon crowd" every day. Since the war began the business activity of the oountry has been expanding with abnormal rapidity. This has required constantly more and more telephone servioe for the business houses. Complete telephone systems have been built and are maintained ai more than fifty training camps over the oountry. This has taken a tremendous amount of equipment and the services of a large number of skilled telephone men. Many of our men are constantly engaged in installing and maintain ing the equipment used only by the Government in this oountry. In addition to this, our Government needed skilled telephone men in the prosecution of the war, and these oould be furnished only by the telephone companies of the oountry. In spite of the war and what it has meant to this company in the increased number of telephone messages to handle, the enlistment of so many of our trained men, the shortage of equipment and the high eost of materials— In spite of all these obstacles, we are meeting the needs of the publie for telephone servioe hi a remarkably suooessfnl way.

It carries no excess weight, yet is heavy enough to get good traction. It is economical of fuel, because of its light weight and correct design, which allows no loss of power. Uses either gasoline or kerosene. It is simple and easy to handle—does not require an expert The frame is all steel, of one piece, heat treated—no bolts or rivets work loose, cannot sag under heaviest strains.

"If the government rules are heed ed and obeyed, food regulations should not get any more stringent than they are at present. If the rules are not heeded there are going to be some food shortages that will be at least inconvenient. "There is a reason for the rule on substitutes.
