Williams County exemption offi cials were forced to make a call for 100 more men Saturday night after it was evident from a review of the first that the quota for the county would not be made up from the first call. Accordingly the first 100 men in the second call, which was published in last week's Graphic are being ex amined today. The local board is safe on the quota needed for Sept. 5, but beyond that do not know now just how many men will be furnished from the first list because of the fact that a great many men have never shown up for physical examination. These have been automatically draft ed by their failure to report and while many of them will be on hand to go to the camps it is expected that there will be trouble in finding others on the list. Following is the list of exemptions allowed by the board and the reason for each exemption: Tommy Johnson, Grenora, Physical Disability.

Hatter of the western part of McKenzie county, holder of serial number 258, the«first to be examined at Shafer. Mr. Hatter passed a per fect physical examination, Claimed no exemption and stated that he was willing to gg whenever called. The Shafer Record savs that al though they had eyes %nd ears some of the registrants \ip for examina tion here last week could neither see nor hear. One registrant hesitatingly read the first two letters on the chart cor rectly but could go no farther. On a second trial he could not even read the first two again. A pair of scis sors was held about six feet from his eyes and he was unable to name the object. Then a large book was held to within about three feet of his eyes and when he still insisted that he was unable to distinguish the object the examining physician pronounced the man's eyesight sufficiently good for military service. Another was asked a few ques tions in an ordinary tone of voice which were- met with a faraway look. Then in a low tone of voice the ex amining physician remarked that the registrant was a sort of a damphoo!. This brought an immediate response in the form of a sternly uttered, "what!" Still another paid no attention whatever to remarks addressed to him. A coin was dropped on the floor near this man after all other tests had failed and when the examining physician asked him in a very low tone if he heard the coin drop he re plied that he did. County Agent E. W. Hall has re ceived word from the Quartermas ter's Depot for this division that the purchase of horses for the Army will probably commence September first, and that the state will be thorough ly covered by the purchasing boards. Farmers having vhorses to sell may avail themselves of the direct dealing plan by notifying Mr. Hall of what they have to offer. Gust Skardos, Alton, 111. Dimitry Lazoff, Trenton.

ENGINEER SEES DESERTED BABE PROBE STARTS INFANT DIES WHILE BEING RUSHEp TO MONDAK BY TWO OFFICERS LEFT TO DIE IN WEEDS SHERIFF OF SHERIDAN COUNTY AND COUNTY CORONER TO INVESTIGATE CASE Engineer John Lavusky, of the Great Northern, saw what looked like a baby in some weeds as his freight train sped along on its way to Mon dak Friday. When he arrived in' Mondak, Montana, he notified Charlie Constine, deputy sheriff at Mondak Deputy Constine called J. C. Brom berg, special officer of Williston, and the two started a search for the baby. At 6 o'clock that night their, search, was rewarded. They found the baby,, which appeared to be between two' and one half and three months' old wrapped in an expensive automobile robe at Snowden, whic his two miles from Mondak. The baby was stilU breathing when found and the two officers rushed the infant to Mondak. Before they reached Mondak, how ever, the baby was dead. Sheriff Jack Bennett, of Sheridan county, and the county coroner, intend to probe th case and prosecutions may ensue. An inquest was held Saturday ata on a an he it as in terred. Officials of Sheridan county have started a searching investiga tion and Williams county officials have been given* full details of the case in the hope that some clue may be found that will lead to discovery of those responsible for the death of the homeless babe. A number of auto parties from" this city heard of the search' being made and many from Williston view the remains of the child before the arrival of the Sheridan county offi cials. CROPS ARE KOI YIEtOIKG VERY 816 THRESHING IS ON A^D SIX BUSHELS APPEARS TO BE AVERAGE HERE Threshing has been on hereabout during the past week and small grains are not yielding to such an extent that graneries will be burdened While there are some very poor yields there are also some fair ones and the gen eral result is from six to ten bushels. U. L. Burdick reports the lowest yield probably that will be threshed, his wheat making a bushel to the acre and rye two bushels. Oats will aver age about 10 bushels. The W. S. Davidson wheat whicfir was thot several weeks ago to be one of the best in this locality will aver age about six bushels. Mr. Davidson says this would have* been much bet ter except for the hail storm which hit his fields a short time ago. The wheat on the Bert Scace place is reported as yielding eight bushels,., the Chamberlain and Lowe farms re port about five. Price Scare Tuesday A .good scare was thrown into Wil liams county farmers this week when it was reported that $1.65 would be the price fixed by the government on wheat. Action was taken at once in a number of North Dakota counties and news today is that the minimum price to be fixed will be not less than $2.00. North Dakota state papers carried very sensational stories regarding the matter the first of the week and every effort was made to wake up the farmers to act before the commis sion had acted. It was generally re ported over the state that a price of $1.65 would be less than cost for the farmers. McKenzie County Crops Indications that McKenzie county crops ar£ not so bad is found in the following paragraphs from the Alex ander Chronicle: D. E. Fuller threshed his fifty acres of wheat on the Maderson land adjoining town this week. It went 6 1-2 bushels per acre No. 1 hard. This crop was raised with practically no rain and that such a crop was raised speaks volumes for our wonderfully productive soil. Herb Mitten reports a yield of 15 1-2 bushels per acre on his field of rye a mile west of town which he threshed last week. Vji* ryh4 •Vi 1 a
