This invest iua- tion on the part of the district board is accepted as Indicating that where there are two or more registered in -mi . in one family, but one will be allowed a deferred classification be cause of employment on a farm, or on the grounds of dependency. The suspicions of the district board have also been aiou-ed by th" large number of allidavits which have been liled hv men seeking a deferred classification 1 ccause of their alleged need on the home farm due in their father being incapaci tated although his age would indicate that he is in the prime of life. A rigid Investigation of all of these have brfll ordered. First District Interested. The selection board for the lirst district is especially interested in the work of the invest igators for the district board, as the drafts called for May 1:1 and during the live days period starting May 2."i. will take most of the Class 1 men under the uues llolinnii'o system. Whether the district will have to make a call upon men in Class 2 for subsequent drafts Is a matter of conjecture. In the opinioii of the majority of exemption olliclals when the Class 1 men uildec the jurisdic tion of any of the boards have been exhausted no more men will be ca II- from Hint district until all of the t'lasn 1 men have been culled, In addition to the heavy draft ''nil for May a huge number of tle patriotic are showing a preference for Hie nnvnl serv ice .and are enlist ing.
