"^theTeginning of the war the sol
diers actually in the fighting line made
their own shelters, which were just
holes dug in the ground and covered
with tree- trunks and .earth and afford
ing very little protection ,besides tak
ing up much of the time of the soldiers
and costing very milch labor and
money for transporting the necessary
timber.
It was then decide^ to utilize the
older classes of the reserve of the ter
ritorial army who had been called to
the colors and who, despite their pre
vious military training, had been found
unable to bear the strain of campaign
ing. Several companies of them were
formed and they were first given the
task of constructing shelters in the
Somme district and around Verdun.
Their officers were chosen from the
engineer corps and from men who in
civil life were engaged in aimilar un
dertakings, such as builders and nim
ers. Most of the men were peasants
used to digging in the fields and their
work was very satisfactory, but this
kind of excavating work was different
and they 'suffered considerably from
the unusual motion of having to throw
the earth upward, or wheeling it in
barrows up steep inclines.
One of the officers overcome this
jews,
to
to
trying difficulty by Inventing an ap
paratus for carrying loosened earth
or rock to the surface by use of elec
tric power. By this arrangement two
men can do the work formerly done
by ten. When the earth has rsached
the surface if falls into barrows and
is wheeled away alohg the .level and
distributed about in such s manner as
not to attract the attention of the en
emy's airmen always flying abotft the
lines to observe whet is going on in
the opposing position.
Special army saw-mills have been
started to provide the props and
planking for the shelters and every
thing is done at minimum cost.

GOVERNMENT GETS REPORT ON
SLACKER ROUNDUP.
•Washington, August 15—(By Union
Associated Press)—The report dé
manded by the Attorney-General of
the United States on the number of
slackers there are in the country,
reaches the Department of Justice to- 1
day. The Government is reported to
have in its possession figures which
indicate that upward of 50,000 men of j
the prescribed age failed to register
for military service on June 5. Agents '
of the Department of Justice have
been throwing out dragnets for the
slackers and making house to house
canvasses wherever possible through
out the country. While 60,000 is but
a small per centage of the total num
ber registered, the Department of
Justice is determined that no such
number of men shall evade military
service. Reports received by the de
partment indicate that the slackers are
made up very largely of three classes ;
—Negroes, Mexicans along the border
and Finns. American citizens of Ger
man birth or parentage, do not figure
extensively in the lists., All persons
rounded up have been ordered ar- (
rested, to be registered and have ser- ;
ial numbers assigned to them by the,
Adjutants-General of their States.
