OLD CUSTOM IS
IN NEW. ORLEANS
New Orleans, June 15. A pushing,
scrambling, heaving mass of women, to
the stranger unique even in a city of I
strange scenes and customs. Scores of
them, from the old gray-haired black
mammy of "befor d' war" days to the
young white girl in her teens with evi
dences of poverty in her bearing and
attire. Many have broods of children!
around them, others carry babies in
their arms. Color runs riot, the ban
danna kerchiefs of the negroes and the
vari-colored -clothing of all combining
to surpass the imagination.
It is the usual Saturday morning dis
tribution of five cent, pieces to the
poverty stricken, a custom begun in
New Orleans many years ago by a
tery company, the old residents
and still observed weekly as a neces
sary rite by at least two of the largest
business concerns in the city. In the
halcyon days, says fradition, the lot
tery gave to all comers coins at certain
times and on holidays, cheered the
hearts of those in financial straits by
Every woman In the county, whether
a member of the War Work Commit
tee or not, is urged to be present at the
meeting, for Mrs. Fuller , and other
members of the committee have a mes
sage which, they will deliver, which
will be of interest to every woman who
wishes to serve her country.
The members of the Escambia Coun
ty Woman's War Work Committee, or
ganized only a few weeks ago, are al
ready doing splendid work for the coun
ty. Their Interest In the War Savings
campaign and their work In connection
with the canning centre here have al
ready demonstrated their patriotism in
no uncertain terms, and all are urged
to be present on Tuesday afternoon to
hear the message

"It Is Just one of our bobbles." de
clared the head of one of the concerns
when asked why the firm observed the
custom. "We have done it for years
and are going to keep it up. And this'
in spite of the fact that we belong to
the Charity Organization Society, which
discourages Individual giving."
Chaos usually precedes the distribu
tion of the "Jitneys" as the negroes
eall the coins. The money is given
away at 8 a. m. but an hour earlier
a crowd already is on hand. By 7:30
o'clock the numter has Increased and
when a small window Is thrown open
the street is a mass of struggling hu
manity. The appearance of the cash
ier electrifies the crowd. With shouts
hands are held in the air,, the mass
surges forward, each woman Intent on
being among the first to receive her
coin. As each is supplied she leaves
the crowd, to make her way to one of
the many public markets where she
usually purchases "seconds' of various
vegetables from the produce dealers.
then goes home to prepare dinner.
The doling out of coins finally Is con
cluded, the window slams down, for
the sum to be distributed has become
exhausted. Many are disappointed but
there is the consolation of looking for
ward to the coming Saturday. They
resolve to be on hand earlier next
Pathos and disappointment were
written plainly on the face of an old
negro mammy one recent Saturday as
she hobbled down the 6treet, assisted
by a battered crutch and a cane.' a

"What's the matter, Mammy? Were
you left out?"
"Yessuh, yessuh. I reckon I ain'

bomehow all dem younger omans Jes

money to buy sumpln to eat wid, too."
And she resumed her Journey.
"Just a minute," called the broker.
"Maybe this will make up for it. "He
took a dollar bill from his pocket.
"Thanky ,suh ; God bless you honey,'
she said. And as. she showered her
thanks and blessings upon him he
waited into his office.

My Dear Senator Fletcher:
Receipt Is acknowledged of your let
ter of June 6, 1918, relative to the
classification under the selective ser
vice law and regulations of men em
ployed in shipyards.
Employment In a shipyard does not
entitle a registrant to deferred classi
fication as such. Under the regula
tions the district board is given exclu
sive original Jurisdiction of all claims
for deferred classification on Indus
trial grounds, and its action is final
with respect to such claims, subject
to appeal to the president under Sec
tion 111 of the regulations. The dis
trict board may grant a registrant so
engaged deferred classification on in
dustrial grounds if In its opinion It
considers the industry in which he i
employed a necessary industry and the
registrant himself necessary thereto
within the meaning of Sections 80 to

89 of the regulations.
In addition to-the foregoing provis
ions of the selective service regula
tions. Sections 152 to 155 1-2. provide
a special list called the "Emergency
Fleet Classification List," upon which
registrants employed by companies en
gaged in the building or fitting of
ships under the supervision of the
navy department or Emergency Fleet
Corporation are placed when requests
are presented to the local boards
properly made out and signed by the
officials designated in Section 153. This
special listing Is equivalent to deferred
classification in Class V so lonsr and
only so long as the registrant remains
employed in this work. Imedlately
uponm leaving such employment a
registrant becomes subject to the
regulations and will be Inducted into
the military service in accordance with
his class and order number as pre
viously determined. It is not thought
that either the navy department or the
Emergency Fleet Corporation would
request to have a pay clerk or any
similar employe put upon the Emer
gency Fleet Classification List. Such
request would not be approved by this

hands and sight are perfect are learn

this Atlantic City of England. They
are employed almost exclusively in an
Industry new to England and expect
before the war is over to compete on
a favorable basis with the more highly
skilled diamond cutters of Amsterdam
and Antwerp, where in pre-war days
there was a monopoly of the business.

Only ex-soldiers with unimpaired
eyesight and perfect control of their
fingers are taken because everything
depends on a man's accuracy of vision
and control of his hands. Even with
these qualities It takes a man a life
time to learn the trade.
First the men pass through a train
ing school. When a man is first ad
mltted he is put to work on marbles
such as he played with when a boy.
He cuts up and polishes the marbles
as he will later do with the real stones.
The marbles are first sawn in half,
and then grround into shape on a steel
disc. This serves to give him some
idea of the finished shape of the real
diamond, but it is impossible to get the
face even approximately correct, owing
to the softness of the marble.
Instead of cutting the 68 facets or
surfaces found on the finished bril
liant, the men cut six planes on the
marble, and afterward grind the base
roughly into the shape of the collet
or neck. When a man does this skill
fully he is given a small diamond to
cut. and it is a great day In a man's
training when this stage arrives. The
feeling that he has a Btone worth from
$100 to $250 in his possession to cut
and polish gives him a sense of re
sponsibility. While undergoing training the men
receive no wages, but they receive a
government allowance of about $7 a
week. After they have advanced far
enough to b entrusted with a dia
mond they are put on a wage basis
of from $10 to $20 a week, depending
on their ability. Their training usual
ly occupies a period of from three to
