Five million is the goal the War Department has set for itself. This means that 4,000,000 men are to be placed in France, with 1,000,000 more in training here. If more are needed, millions will be forthcoming. Here are some fig ures on America's man-power: Males between 21 and 31 registered last year .............. • ...." 9,500,000 Young men who have since become 21, registered last June............ 750,000 Young men 21 since then, registered Aug. 24 ............... ............. 150,000 Estimated number who will register when the draft is extended to men between 18 and 45................................................ ............13,500,000 Marine Corps ...................................................................... 75,000 U.

The politicians selected candidates to run on the Independent ticket against the Farmers Nonpartisan League candi dates at the general election this fall. Apparently the acid test the Farm ers N. P. L. applied to the strength of the politicians' vote at the primary election in August had good effect, and the gang are re-enforcing them selves preparatory to the fall drive which will surely bring them nothing but defeat at the hands of the farm ers. The tactics the politicians will use during the coming campaign is not yet known, but it is a safe bet that they will use considerable camouflage. ARCHER COUPLE MARRIED AT PLENTYWOOD WED. W. B. Newlon and Miss Ida Moe, both of Archer, were married at the Congregational parsonage in Plenty wood on Wednesday evening by Rev. Savage. Mr. Newton is the Great Northern depot agent at Archer, having been stationed at that place a little over a year, in which time he has made a wide acquaintance. Miss Moe, who is a sister to the Moe Brothers, farmers and business men at Archer, is too well known in that community to need an introduc tion. She is an estimable young lady and has a host of friends. The newlyweds will make their home at Archer.

Eety one of the five programs will meet with satisfaction and such whok:some entertainment should attra&t peo ple from every section of the country. rSOLDIER WA1TS THE PRO DUCERS NEWS IMORWARDED The Producers News is in receipt of a letter from Olat Nordby, form er elevator manager at Raymond, now a soldier in training at Camp Lewis, Wash., who asks that this newspaper be forwarded to ~his present address, In a postscript Rr. Nordby says, "'Uncle Sam sure does take good care of us boys here at Camp Lewis." His address is, Olaf Nordby, Base Hos pital, 93rd Divison, Camp Lewis, American Lake, Wash. A contingent of sixteen Sheridan county men, just two squads, includ ing Art Pronvost of Poplar, and Anton Paul Beyer of Plentywood, the former who was transferred from the Detroit, Mich., board, and the latter from the LaMoure, N. D., board, en trained here on Thursday morning and are now on their way to Camp Lewis, American Lake, Wash. The local board called seventy men from over the county to entrain on this date, but it appeals that fifty six of the selectives were placed in deferred classification until Novem ber 1st, this year. The board sent out a call yesterday for enough men to fill the quota of seventy, whic'i means that an additional fifty-six men will entrain here shortly. Those whom received deferred clas sifications until November, was due probably to the fact that they were needed at home to help with the threshing and fall farm work. The usual preliminary ceremonies were held at the Community Hall Wednesday afternoon, and a free dance was given at the Orpheum that night for the boys. The Plenty wood band played several selections and headed the parade from the Com munity hall to the depot.
