Trouble of The Local Boards Will Be Ended At Early Date Washington, Feb. 26. The troubles of the local Florida draft boards are I about over. This cheering news comes iu the form of a statement just issued Col. Hugh S. Johnson, acting pro vost marshal general. Colonel Johnson says he has been requested by several State headquar ters to outline the general duties of the local boards after the completion ! classification. Some 15,000 citizens compose these boards," he adds, 'land it was recog nized early that the government musi adopt some policy which would en able these men to assist it in its hour of need, yet not take unfair advantage of their patriotism to their business and financial loss. To this end the regulations calling for classification were planned and put into effect "With this work completed, the lo cal boards have finished the great task. They will be asked new to su pervise only the drawing of armv units from their respective communi ties. They will not be required to be present at the actual physical exami nations. The regulations require that they approve or disapprove the re sult of such examinations. To lighten the demands on the time of board membeis, they may authorize the chief clerk to sign documents in ths name of the board. The main duty of local boards henceforth will be the reclassification of men whose status may change to such a degree as to entitle them to be transferred from one class to another, or to classify such men as may either have failed to register or who may hereafter be required to register. "It is suggested where possible that a member of the local hnnrA shall act as chief clerk, although it should be said here clerk hire will be closely regulated in a short time based upon the actual registration of a local board. "Mobilization duties will largely be mechanical and the preparation of the notices, the making of lists, the securing of transportation should be performed by the clerk. When large detachments are entraining it is not too much to ask the local board to be represented by one member. These occasions are usually public func tions and the presence of a represen tative of the government is desired. "From what has been said, it will be seen that, when the classification is complete, the duties of board mem bers will be supervisory and general and no more onerous than that im posed on members of town and city councils and the like. From time to time specific tasks will be imposed 'requiring more time and effort, as for instance, the possible registration and classification of men who have at tained the age of 21 since June 5, Jii:7. When such specific tasks are required, compensation will be pro vided for those who must require it. At other times there will be no sen ous demands on the time of board members and hence no compensation will be provided. "The local and district boards are about to complete the erection of an fenny building machine, the like of which is unknown in the world's his tory. From it will come the armies of the future and this country never again will find itself unready. The rr.on who have built it have toiled night and day for many months; their work was not such as could be meas ured In money. True, a few have complained, but the great majority hove toiled on patiently and patriot ically through trying ordeals, chang ing regulations and confusing details, and the result of their work stands out today as a monument to their toil. History will find a way to recog nize the work of this great body of citizens who in the rush of war prep arations, have given the best that they had to give."
