Next Tuesday, June 5, will be a mem
orable day in the United States. On
r that day all male persons between the
- ages 21 and 30, inclusive, must register
their names as eligibles to the United
- army, and it will mark the beginningof
s a new military policy of this govern
E We are sorry it is true, but we have
- heard that several persons in this county
who should register have said that they
do not intend to register and that no
one can compel them to. This is a
much mistaken idea, and we hope those
who feel that way will change their
minds before June 5. It will be much
better to go ahead and register like men.
The government now needs its citizens
whom it has protected in the past, and
it will deal harshly with those who will
fully try to (lodge service.
If there are now any in this county;
!who are subject tWregistration and who.e
do not expect to register we hope they
will take The Sentinel's advice and give
up any such idea. It will be the best h
in the long run, for there will be no es- I
cape from the vigilance of Uncle Sam. k
Simply because one registers is no surety
that he will be drafted into the army.
Only about one out of every twenty will t
be drafted, while the others will be '
exempted for the time being.
Of course there are few, very few, d
persons in this county who expect to c
try to dodge, but there should be not 0
one, and we hope their friends will S
show them the uselessness of their
course between now and registration
* day, and save them trouble and prob
- able disgrace.
It iP a serious matter.
PAY ONE, PAY ALL
Last week we received about $25 worth
of Liberty Loan advertising which the
United States government wants us to
print free. Besides subscriptions, ad
vertising space is all a newspaper has
to sell, and we are unable to see why
in the name of justice and common
sense the government wants the news
papers to freely give their stock in trade
when the same government pays for
everything else it gets.
We are willing to fight for our coun
try and pay our part of war taxes, but
I we are not willing to give this govern
ment free advertising until the munition
makers give it free guns and shells,
automobile makers give it free automo
biles and shipbuilders free ships.
SPATANSBUR(, S. C., May 2. -A
mass meeting for discussion and decis
ive action, called by the Spartanburg
Imnprovement~ association, was held
Wednesday night, the object being the
fly. Sevral lively addresses against
the fly were made by prominent citizens,
among whom was Editor H arold IBooker,
who grew vehement in his denunciation
of these pests. For awhile there was
considerable strong feeling against flies
in general. The result of the meeting
was that by a unanimous vote a resolu-'
tion was adopted condemning in strong
ternia these insects. Early the next*
morning, on the authority of Hugh
C (annon, a large drove of flies was seen
le~aving Spartaniburg, headed in the di
rection ojf Gaffney.
Tmo our birthday will be June 0, we
are goiing to celebrate it one day early
this year by registering, according to
Uncle Sam'a instructions.
