nerves. Rupture does not bar unless
Irreducible or unusually large.
"All other registrants are ordered

height when exceptionally well pro
portioned are to be accepted.
"Rejected registrants less than 58
inches in height.
Refer to the medical advisory
bpard registrants whose height Is
more than 58 Inches and less than 60.
Weight Requirements.
"Reject registrants whose weight
is less than 100 pounds unless it is
plainly due to some recent illness and
otherwise the registrants have no
disqualifying defect.
"Registrants whose weight is more
than 100 pounds and less than, 114
pounds and who have no other dis
qualifying defects are to be referred
to the medical advisory board.
"Registrants under weight in pro
portion to their height, unless it is
plainly due to some temporary cause,
are referred to the medical advisory
board. When this underweight can
be reasonably explained and the reg
istrant is otherwise physically fit,
"No registrant can be rejected on
account of teeth defects.
"No foot cases are to be rejected.
"Reject all registrants with the ab
sence of one eye and when there Is
no doubt they are totally blind in
both eyes.

lor of Boise, formerly of Bonner's
Ferry, was elected republican state
chairman by the republican state cen
tral committee to succeed Evan
Evans of Grangevllle, resigned. The
election of Chairman Taylor came
after an all-day seaeion of the com
mittee, during which an effort was
made by various factions represented
to agree upon some satisfactory man.
Taylor was then elected by acclama
tion. The new chairman was for two
terms state auditor. He wm prior to
serving the state in that capacity en

The fight over the chairmanship
narrowed down to two men. although
several others were active through
their friends. D. W. Hays of Poca
tc-llo, Monte Gwinn of Boise, James
H. Gipson of Caldwell, and Stephen
D. Taylor were all considered. Only
Taylor and Gipson were nominated.
Later the backers of Gipson with
drew hto name. Adjournments were

honors. He immediately toob-eharge

amined and passed upon by the med
ical advisory board.
