Unrestricted Re-opening of Cases Men Not Inducted Into Army Is Cut Off— Those in Service Given a Chance. Provost Marshal General Crowder today authorized Governor Alexander to create legal advisory boards com posed of Idaho attorneys and mem bers of the American Bar association, which has promised its aid to the plan, so that the rights of all registrants under the draft law may be safe guarded and drafted mon may secure the benefit of the legal knowledge of the lawyers who are to serve for pa triotk- relisons. Lawyers appointed as , members of district boards will receive their commissions effective Nov. -0 om the president and thek positions to be permanent. Additional in structions are being sent to the resi dent vice president ot the American liar association in Litis slate, James K. y.ibb of Lewiston. REOPENED CASES CLOSED. Further telegraphic instructions re ceived by Governor Alexander from the provost marshal give drafted men who believe they have not had a full and fair hearing to be heard by the local boards and the adjutant general of the state is empowered to make an investigation in such instances. Cases of men inducted into military service by a local board can be reopened un der the new ruling under certain con ditions. Cases of men heretofore re opened and now in process of rehear ing are closed by the order and prior disposition of the case adhered. The purpose of this order is to get quicker nation under the first draft and close it so that the second draft cun go into effect POWER TO APPOINT BOARDS. Regarding the powers given the gdv ernor with reference to making legal appointments the telegraphic instruc tions from the provost marshal say: "The governor shall constitute legal advisory boards ln such numbers and within auch districts that there shall be convenient to every registrant who is to appear before a local or district board within the state, a legal advisory board to which such registrant may apply for all necessary advice and assistance In preparing claims, ques tionnaires, or any other papers re quired by these regulations to be sub mitted by a registrant After deter mining the number and location of legal advisory boards necessary to ac complish this purpose, the governor shall nominate, for appointment by the president, three representative lawyers, to be permanent members of such boards, to take charge of this work within each such district, and to he held responsible that there shall al ways be a competent force of lawyers or laymen available to such registrants nt any time during which the local or district boards within such district are open for business. "The governor shall nominate one of such three persons to be chairman of each legal advisory board; and the member so nominated shall, whenever practicable, be a Judge of the county court, or of the common pleas court, or of a court of similar Jurisdiction. "The governor shall call upon afl members of the bar within the state, and if necessary, upon competent lay men. to offer their services to such legal advisory hoards for the purpose of being present at the headquarters Barley a Great Grain superior to wheat in some ways as a food grain.

Such per sons shall be known as associate mem bers, and no formal appointment by the president shall be necessary. SHOULD BE LAWYER'S PRIDE. "For his assistance in 'this work, the governor has the active co-operation and assistance of the American Bar as sociation. "It should be the pride of every law yer that no registrant within his dis trict is without competent legal ad vice and assistance in preparing all papers that such registrant is required to submit in the process of the selec tion of citizens of this nation for duty in the present emergency. "It is intended to utilize the co-op eration of the American Bar Associa tion in the following manner: In every state the American Bar asso ciation has a resident vice president, elected member of its general coun cil, and in every Btate where the presi dent of the State Bar association is a member of the American association, he Is ex-officio member of the general council. I request that you appoint a central committee composed prefer ably of said three officers of the Amer ican Bar association and state attorney general to plan the organization of the several legal advisory boards through out the state. Full instructions are being mailed today to all members of American Bar association and you are requested to confer with its above mentioned officers as promptly as pos sible. It may be necessary to delay a few days until they receive instruc tions. The elected member of the gen eral council of the American Bar as sociation in your state, who will in fQrm you uf name anU address of res ident vice president and ex-officio member of genera leouncil, is James ^ Bubb HA8TEN DRAFT CLOSING. Taking up the matter of rehearing of cases and the closing of other re hearings the provost marshal wired the governor as follows; "The unrestricted reopening of cases of men not yet inducted into military service is delaying the raising of the army and the reopening of cases of men already so inducted is interfering with its training. The following rules will therefore govern the reopening of the cases mentioned in that ruling in the future. "Cases of men inducted Into military service by a local hoard shall not be reopened after such induction except as provided in paragraph five hereof. Cases of men already inducted into' military service heretofore reopened and now in process of rehearing shall be forthwith closed and the prior dis position of the case adhered to. APPLY COMMANDING OFFICER8. "Any person already Inducted into military service who claims that he has not had a full and fair hearing or has not had a full and fair opportunity to be heard by a local or district board as required by the selective service law and regulations or who claims that the board has exceeded its Jurisdiction or substantially violated the selective service law or regulations in passing on Ills claim may apply to the com manding officer of his mobilization camp at any time within seven days after arrival at the mobilization camp to be discharged under the provisions of paragraph one three nine army reg ulayllons. If the commanding officer desires information of the facts of particular case or the circumstances of its hearing he request tile adju- J taut general of the state to investigate the facts of such case and the circum stances of its hearings and the adju tant general of the state shall forth with call upon the proper board for a full report of all such facts and cir cumstances. "Cases mentioned in subparagraphs 'A' and 'B' of page six of compiled rulings No. 12 which have heretofore been decided may be reopened as therein provided only when the claim for such reopening is filed with the adjutant general of the state within ten days after the date of this tele gram and where permission to reopen Is granted by the adjutant general of the state before induction Into mili tary service. Cases mentioned in that paragraph decided hereafter will be reopened as therein provided only where the claim for reopening of either the local or district hoard shall have been filed with the adjutant general of the state within seven days after receipt of notice by the registrant or person claiming exemption or dis charge of the decision of the local or district board as prescribed In sections 25, 41 and 45 of the regulatlona and where permission to reopen Is granted by the adjutant general of the state before induction Into military aervlce. Such cases may not be reopened by the local or district boards unless per mission to reopen them is granted by the adjutant general of the state as herein provided and such permission shall not be granted unless the claims are filed within the time limits herein prescribed. "Cases mentioned In subparagraph 'A' page seven compiled rulings No. 12 may be reopened as provided therein. Please Inform all .concerned and give the publicity necessary to put all on notice of tills time limit. MANY APPEALS PENDING. "The great number of appeals to the president suggest that there must be sttll a great number of appeals pend ing before district boards. We have already found that the president's ur gent call upon lawyers to assist the selective service system Is producing a general and enthusiastic response from men of the legal profession and we have taken advantage of It hero by using volunteer lawyers to analyze the records In appealed eases and to make a very short summary and rec ommendation upon which those charged with the decision on appeal can function promptly. This suggests a way to clean up all the appeals pending before district hoards very swirtly. If you will call upon members of the legal profession to offer their services lo district boards and suggest to district boards that the services be utilized along the lines here suggested, the district hoards will be greatly aid ed by these summaries and I believe that they can clean up their dockets within a few days. "This same method can be used at state headquarters to dispose of the congestion of requests to reopen cases. "There is urgent necessity to bring the first draft to a close as promptly as possible. Reports from mobiliza tion camps indicate that there is con siderable discrepancy between the per centage of the quotas thus far called and the number of men who have ac tually been furnished to the camp. Please address yourself to this situ ation at the earliest possible moment to make sure that every board has furnished to Its mobilization camp the percentage of its quota thus far called, if any part of this delay Is due to the fact that mobilization camps have not reported to local boards the number of men rejected, please Inform me of the name of the mobilization camp in or der that 1 may take immediate steps to have this delay remedied."

PREMIER EXPLAINS DUTIES OF COUNCIL London, Nov. 14.—The fight against Premier Lloyd George's support of an yintef-allled war council came to a head In the Riouse of commons this afternoon when the premier himself took the floor to explain the agreement creating the organisation.

Lloyd George suggested that the house of commons dsvots next Monday to a detailed debate on the whole war council plan. He than read in full the agreement between the three govern ments of England.
