S. F. La Bounty, Navy Recruiting Officer at 730 Common Street, New Orleans has announced that his office will make extra efforts to enlist such men. At the present time the Navy is in need of men who are machinists or who are anxious to advance to the machinists ratings and who can do so by enlisting in the firemen branch. There are exceptional oppor tunities open to men who enlist in the machinist branches. A man poss essing training as a machinist who passes the examination will be en listed as a machinist mate second class at a rate of pay of $44.00 per month and can advance to a higher rating paying as much as $2400 year. A men enlisting as fireman third classis in line for promotion to ratings in the machinists branch. The Navy needs a large number of men skilled in the other mechani cal branches of the service, such as electricians, carpenters, ship fitters, coppersmiths and painters. There are good chances in the Navy for men with clerical experience who can enlist as yoemen, and for bakers, pharmacists and cooks. The pay in the Navy, according to Lieut. LaBounty, compares fav orably with civil life because a man gets his board and lodging free and on first enlistment a $60 outfit of clothing. Some men in the service save regularly half of their pay and statistics have been compiled by the Navy Department showing that man during 30 years service as sea men if he saves fifty per cent of his pay at the time of retirement he will have saved about $28,000, which, of course with the interest the money earned. When a man retires from the service after a certain number of years he is given a pension. A man without a trade enlisting in the Navy in the seaman branch can rise to higher ratings or can learn one of the trades taught aboard battleships. "The Navy is the first line of de fense and in the present crisis this country must look to the Navy to make operations of defense effec tive," said Lieut. LaBounty. "How ever, we do not appeal to a man to enlist for patriotic motives alone, but we point out to him what the Navy offers in the way of pay and advancement and if a man is am bitious he never lets the opportunity go by. The Navy offers many oppor tunities that they cannot be detail ed in limited space, but a letter ad dressed to the recruiting office at 730 ommon Street, New Orleans, will bring information at any point.

Do you realize that you are get ting national and international news several hours ahead of the eartiert metropolitan papers that arrive here. Complete Nature And Action of Conscription Bill Explained j i ! j There was a time in the country's history when military enumerators, backed by bayonets, went out among the people to take a compul sory service census. Today under the principle of universal liability to service the execution of the law is put into the hands of the people. The approval of the new national army bill and the President's pro clamation thereunder will be coin cident. All persons within the age limits prescribed will be required to present themselves for registration at the customary viting places in the voting precincts in which they have their permanent homes, on a day which the President will an nounce. The probability is, that from ten to fifteen days will elapse between approval of the bill and re gistration day. The governor of each state will be the chief of registration therein. The machinery S)f registration in each country is to be in charge of the sheriff, the county clerk, and the county physician, acting ex officio, unless a different board is announ ced by the governor. In cities con taining population of more than 30, 000, the registration will be under the control of the mayor and selected boards of registration. In order that the designated county and city offi cials, and the people generally, can get a clear understanding of the census the following briefl outline is given. The Appropriation of Registrars T,he proportion of registrars shall be one for each 170 persons to be registered. Each age to be register ed will comprise about 1 per cent of the population. If, for instance, all in between 19 and 25 years of age, inclusive, are to be registered, the registrar would have to enroll about 7 per cent of the precinct population. It is desirable to accept the ser vices of competent volunteer regis trars to serve without compensation. All registrars musi be sworn. The voting place in each precinct must be prepared for registration. Printed instructions covering every detail of registration will be in the hands of sheriffs and assessors on the fifth day after the presidents proclamation. In Cities Over 30,000 Population The mayor of a city containing more than 30,000 inhabitants, or the officials designated by the governor therein, shall, with approval of the govémor, appoint for each ward or convenient minor sub-division con taining about 30,000 people one registration board, and shall desig nate one officer of each board to per forin duties similar to thase imposed on the sheriff, as heretofore out lined. If the mayor desires, he may appoint a central board to co-ordi nate the work of minor boards. Duties of County Clerks, and of Clerks of Cities Over 30,000 people On the 5th day after the president has issued his proclamation clerks of counties and cities of over 30,000 must secure a supply of blanks and copies of the registration regulations from the sheriff or from the mayor.

In no case shall such persons be given registration certificates. They are to be in structed by the clerk that the burden is on them to see to it that the cards reach the registars of their home precincts by registration day. Absentees and . the Sick. Person absent from their home counties may be registered by mail If so absent, a man should go to the clerk of the county where he may be staying on the sixth day after the date of the President's proclamation. If he is in a city of over 30,000 pop plation, the city clerk is the official to whom to apply. The absentee will be told to register, but he must mail his card to reach his precinct by re gistration day. Persons so sick as to present them selves for registration must send competent person to the county or city clerk on the sixth day after the issuing of the proclamation. The clerk will give instructions for re gistration. Colleges, Universities, Homes and other Institutions Officials of education, charitable and other institutions should apply for instructions to the county or city clerk on the sixth day after the date of the proclamation for instructions as to a convenient method of regis tration. The wardens of jails, penitentiar ies, and reformatories should apply to the county or city clerk for in structions on the sixth day. Five days after the date of the President's proclamation complete regulations will be in the hands of all sheriffs and of the officials of cities of over 30,000 population. The President is authorized to call upon all public officers to assist in the execution of the law. The plan is, however, to rely on the people for the proper execution of the law. It is expected that patriotic citizens will offer their services free as re gistrars. Such services will be grate fully acknowledged. Volunteers for this service should communicate im mediately with the proper officials. The Louisiana Syrup and Canning Company shipped this week a car load of syrup to Texas.
