What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

DILLON AUTO CO., Agent 27 Helena St. DILLON, MONTANA Phone 39-J CLASS ONE MEN UN TIL EXHAUSTED District Quotas to Bo Fixed By t-lie Number of Eligible Men In Division. Washington, April 24—Congress lias just changed the army draft regulations so that men needed in agriculture or industry won't be drafted from one district while the workers in non-essentials are draft free in another. It took nearly three months to pass the clasification bill,” but the job is finally done. The bill changes apportionment of draft quotas drastically, as fol lows: Quotas will be figured on a basis of the number of eligible men in class 1, not on a percentage of the total registration. If Butte has fewer physically competent men in class 1 than has another city of the same size, rewer men will be called from Butte than from that other city. Or it will work the other way around. Uncle Sam will base his call to Butti on the number of physically fit men in class 1, rather than on the total number of males within draft age. Another important bill affectftig the draft is still tied up in the house. This is the bill to make men who have become 21 since last June liable to draft. This bill, the war department figures, would let into the draft more than 700,000 new class one men. It would set far in the future the day when men with dependents will have to be cal led to the colors. Both house and senate have tak en their time in respect to these bills. Both were strongly urged in General Crowder’s report the first week in December, when congress reconvened for the present session. The “clasification bill” was intro duced in the senate January 15, and passed March 1. A duplicate of the senate bill as passed was substituted for a house bill on the same subject that had been previously introduced, but it was April 13 before the senate bill was passed by the house. The to tal time taken to make the bill a law, was, therefore, nearly three months. Recent draft calls have been sent out under the old law, because we had to have new men to keep our cantonments and training facilities at work. The war could not wait on congress. There was strong oposition to the clasification bill largely dictated by politics. Congressmen and senators from districts where there is a pre ponderance of class 1 men were afraid to touch a thing that affected their constituents so vitally. Support of the new law has come in great measures from country dis tricts, where there are fewer un married men of draft age, in pro portion to population than in big cities. Congressional action on the bill to make men who have reached i l since registration day subject to draft has been even slower than that on the classification bill. Introducing in both houses and senate Jan. 15, it has not yet been reported out by the house mili tary committee. The senate passed it March 29, but house military committeemen say they have no idea when it will be reported out. MEN COMING OF AGE TO BE CALLED TO COLORS Washington, April 25—The house late today adopted the senate reso lution for the registration- for mili tary of young men who have reach ed the age of 21 years since June 5 last. The measure now goes to con ference. An amendment offered by Representative Hull of Iowa, .and adopted, 119 to SI, provides that men registered under the bill shall be placed at the bottom of the class es to which they may be -resigned.
