MAY CALL 10OQ TO OBTAIN 214 MEN FOR ARMY: DRAFT Official List of the Numbers Drawn Has Not Reached Fourth Stark County District Board Yet—Federal Jurisdiction of the Draft Ceases Tonight When Official Numbers Will Be Mailed to All Boards. Th* local draft board was besieged •oday by scores of young men who piled questions thick and fast to membera of tbe board. Many of these wanted to file reasons why tbey ahould be exempted. Others were amtous to know when tbey would be , called before the board for examlna- o K.tlon, and yet another class who had j%vregletered while.In Ohio whose resi- **dB_»A*nee I* ln another state, wished to Ttnow tf they were ln the select list. Of this class was a young man who registered at Lima, whose bome la in Florida and he wished to know his number. Of coarse to all questions aome member of tbe board gave the beet answer he could to the questioner, but In many cases lt was unsatisfactory aa regarded the time when tbey would be oalled for examination, and whan eoald they file tbelr appli- oatlon for exemption. Th* members of tbe local board are of tMBplnion that in order to All the qpotatfgf the fourth district at least 1,000 At those whose names appear •tat on the lists as drawn at Washington will ba called in before the draft board. They figure that about 25 per e*nt of til* number drawn may be ac- eepted ttr service, and lt Is stated that thia la a much'"larger per cent than are- found available ot the regular enlistments for military aervlce for the U. 8. army. It Is within bound* to say, you need not call your- aelf exempt from tbe draft unless your number waa drawn as far down tb* list a* the number required multiplied by four or perhaps five. The local board has not received tka) official list of tbe drawing and cannot Mt until thia 1* received. [ Claim* for exemption,cannot be con- > *j**L/<ldered until tbe off trie! list Is reeeiv- AWp/i nnd cards are mailed to those holding numbers of the first drawn to the ontent «f double the number for tbe quota f*r the district. Then these will appear before the board, where a physical examination yrill be held by local physicians, and the claims for exemption tor other reasons will be considered. In this connection lt may ba stated tbat local physicians aro expected to volunteer their services for , theae examinations and this may be done at any time to the local board. For physical examinations a room ln the city building will be appropriated for this purpose and this will take considerable time, but must not exceed a few days except under extraordinary circumstances. As soon as the official Hat for the call is received from Washington It will be posted on the bulletin board ln .the city ball and also published ln the Review. Federal Jurisdiction Passes Washington, D. C., July 23.—Federal Jurisdiction over the operation of the draft ceaaes today. The fortunes of more than a million American young .men, called to the colors In the first draft, will reet In the hands of the local exemption boards and tbe district boards, wben Provost Marshal General , Crowder malls the official Hats of men called, late today. The official Hats are now in the hands of the government printers and will be ready tor distribution to tb* local boards by nightfall. The Hata will contain tbe entire 10,500 numbers drawn, ln the order la which they were drawn. Each local board will then have to eliminate the numbers higher than the highest number ln their Jurisdiction. It has been planned to do tbls work of elimination in the office of the Provost Marshal General but this was found Impracticable because tt would delay the operation ot the draft for several daya. Local boards on the coaat will be the last to get ln action, because the lists will be mailed simultaneously and western statee will receive them later than eastern states. .Once ln operation, local board) and dietrict board* will be entirely out of the Jurisdiction of the federal government. The next act of the federal government will be the mobilisation of the national army which probably wiU not take place until early fall. "Bvery step has been made clear to the local boards and there should be no delay," said General Chowder today.

The Russians' hold on Halicz and Stanlslau is seriously menaced Vy the Austro-German offensive.

On the adjoining California plateau the French, after desperate fighting, retained their supporting trenches. Huge masses of Germans were flung forward'in the edvastatlng flre of the French guna and they sustained terrible losses.

On the double plateau north of the eastern end of Chemln des Dames, where the Germans were able to penetrate the flrat line trenchea of the French, counter attacks swiftly developed and ln the darkness the men battled wltb bayonets and dubbed rifles with the fury of maniacs. Long and careful preparations bad been made for the big effort to smash the French front along the rocky ground north of the Aisne. Picked storming troops were sent forward after a bombardment that was described by observers at the front as unprecedented. Batteriea of heavy guns were moved to this sector of the German front and for many hours they rained tons of steel upon the French trenches.

C, July 23—President Wilson will settle the shipping controversy regardless of the opinions of either Chairman Wm. Denman, ot the Federal Shipping Board or Maj. General Ooethals, president of tbe emergency shipping corporation. This was made plain at the White House today. It was stated that the President hoped to evolve a solution wbich will permit commencing immediately the construction of the emergency American merchant fleet. "And this statement was coupled with the announcement that tbe President had no intention of calling either General Ooethals or Mr. Denman Into conference today: Officials said they believed the President will divide the work so tbat both Denman and General Goethals will be retained in the service of the government. But they also said that If it should develop that either or both men are not willing to carry on their jobs in the manner suggested by the President he will have no resitancy in removing them from their posts. It was generally felt, however, that the President would find a way out that will be satisfactory to all concerned. Despite the fact that Chairman Denman took occasion today to deny that John R. White had resigned from the shipping board, Secretary to the President Tumulty later said Mr. White submitted hla resignation more than two weeks ago. He said Mr. White pleaded ill health and that it was very likely that the Preaident will accept the resignation shortly. John A. Donald, who was also said by a New York newspaper to have resigned, personally denied that he had done sq. General Ooethals was early at his desk today, but he had nothing to adji to the controversy. His position has been and Is that he was selected by tbe President to perform a certain task and tbat be will do if it is possible. He refuses, however, to enter Into personalities, or to air his side ot the controversy with Denman. Until President Wilson settles the controversy it will be impossible to make any prograss on the ship building program. If he divides tbe work and orders General Ooethals to go ahead with the construction of steel and wooden ships, withdrawing pow- *er from the Shipping Board to supervise or hold up the General's contracts, it is expected the President will announce some plan whereby costs shall be reviewed. It has been the contention.of the shipping board that steel prices aB made to General Ooethals are, far too high and tha President is expected to make announcement of a plan which will protect the government on this point.

APPLY THI Aio LIANCC SANITARY MILK CO. MB ACME AD PAGE 4. tit-Ammo. BY JOHN EDWIN NEVIN International Newa Servlee Staff Cor respondent Washington, D. C, July 23.—Tbe Russian situation today ts far more serious than at any Ume alnce tbe new republic was formed. Tbe existence of the new government is at stake. Officials in closest touch with developments there made this admission today. They said that the present must prove the supreme test of the men who have devised a free Russia and have overthrown the czar. Should Premier Kedensky, who bas rushed to the German battle front be able by bis supreme magnetism to overcome the growing rebellion In the Russian ranks, and swing a reunited military force across the advancing path of the Oerman hordes the day may be saved. If be fails anarchy must rule throughout the country and the Oerman war machine must swing far across Into the Interior, Confidential advices reaching Washington today indicate that tne Oerman government ls fully aware of what is going on. These advices say the Kaiser is now en route to tbe eastern front. It is expected he will do everything possible to bave hi* generals crumple up the Russian defense line and follow tbe tactics which permitted them to overrun all Roumania ln an Incredibly short time. The Information reaching here shows tbat the Austro-German forces are attacking all along tbe entire battle line and that at no point are the Russians holding, with the possible exception of certain sectors north of Smorgon aad between Drysvlaly aad Dvinsk. The Russian troops themselves bare been responsible for tbe Austro-German successes. They have refused to fight gad hav* simply retired •t many.paint* without attempting to hold the Germans. Th* latter, with the presence of the Kaiser at tha froet as an Incentive, can now be expected to try hard to make the re treat a rout and on their success or failure will depend whether Russia' is. to longer be a factor In the entente or dismissed as a hindrance. Officials here who are familiar with developments say the present situs- tlon ls due to the supreme control being exercised .by the workmen's and soldiers committee at Petrograd. They explain that it has utterly destroyed discipline with the result that officers now in command are unable to force their men to obey orders. Although the pro-German rioting has been stamped out in Petrograd tbe sentiments expressed there have spread rapidly ter the troops at the front- Premier Kerensky is striving desperately to stamp it out. but officials here say it is Impossible to tell whether he will be successful. Washington, D. C. July 23.—Dispatches received today at tbe Russian embassy declare disorder In Petrograd has been suppressed. Soldiers taking part in tbe riots have been disarmed and dismissed, many suspects have been arrested and energetic measures have been taken to keep down firing from windows, it is said. According to another dispatch the appointment of Kerensky as preeident of th* council haa been received with enthusiasm. The cabinet has not yet been formed but will Be when Kerensky returns from the front. Nekrass* Off remains ln tbe cabinet but without portfolio and will aet as vice president of the council. Zoctele will be the provisional head ot interior affairs. War dispatches atate the Germans concentrated beavy artillery at Kaluga and brought fresh troops Including a oorpa taken from tbe Twentieth, Thirtieth and Sixtieth regiment, from the French front. The Prussian guard and five regiments of Austrian cavalry from Vilna were also brought to Kalusz. Prisoners taken said the German losses were very heavy. Senate Votes Down Plan To Reconsider Food Control Bill International Newa Bervlee: Waahlngton, D. C, July 28.—The Senate this afternoon voted down a motion by Senator Trammell of Florida, to reconsider the food control bill, passed Saturday Senator Trammell voted tor the bill Saturday although opposed to the two dollar minimum wheat price fixed ln the measure. The vote was 61 to 8. Senator Trammel declared a 32.00 minimum wheat price for exorbitant aad that It would mean tbat the consumer would pay from 312 to 315 a barrel for flour this winter. He insisted tbat this would defeat the primary purpose of the food control bill. The measure suffered another delay today aB the bill waa not available to members of the hous* tn the form lt passed the senate. Chairman Lever, of tbe agricultural committee, wae obliged to defer asking that the measure be sent to conference until the copies can be read by members. He announced, however, that be would ask unanimous consent to send the measure to conference tomorrow. Hoaae leader* are stiU hopeful that die bill la final form will be ready for the president* signatures by Saturday night. A test of atrength between tbe President and the eection of tbe senate that succeeded ln amending tbe food control bill to create a three man commission ln place of giving Herbert C. Hoover complete authority, at at hand. Tb* White House allowed It to become known today that tba administration atands firmly on Ita demand tbat the one man dictatorship be retained. It had been thought the President would be content to overcome the commission feature by appointing men completely acceptable to Mr. Hoover, wltb Mr. Hoover aa chairman, bat Mr. Wilson I* unalterably oppoaed to this and will personally inform leaders in congress tbat the conferees on the MB must strike out the commission amendment.

While lt la being fought out ln conference, legislative activity will remain practically at a standstill. The finance committee wtll make no effort to press the big war' revenue bill until lt can clearly foresee the fate of the Smoot amendment. If the conferees throw lt out as unconstitutional, the war revenue bill can be considered in Ita present form. bnt If they decide to validate It and keep lt tn the bill, the revenue program will have to be largely rewritten.

ALLIANCE. OHIO, MONDAY, JULY 23, 1917.
MAY CALL 10OQ TO OBTAIN
214 MEN FOR ARMY: DRAFT
Official List of the Numbers Drawn Has Not Reached
Fourth Stark County District Board Yet—Federal
Jurisdiction of the Draft Ceases Tonight When Official Numbers Will Be Mailed to All Boards.
Th* local draft board was besieged
•oday by scores of young men who
piled questions thick and fast to membera of tbe board. Many of these
wanted to file reasons why tbey
ahould be exempted. Others were
amtous to know when tbey would be
, called before the board for examlna-
o K.tlon, and yet another class who had
j%vregletered while.In Ohio whose resi-
**dB_»A*nee I* ln another state, wished to
Ttnow tf they were ln the select list.
Of this class was a young man who
registered at Lima, whose bome la in
Florida and he wished to know his
number. Of coarse to all questions
aome member of tbe board gave the
beet answer he could to the questioner, but In many cases lt was unsatisfactory aa regarded the time when
tbey would be oalled for examination,
and whan eoald they file tbelr appli-
oatlon for exemption.
Th* members of tbe local board are
of tMBplnion that in order to All the
qpotatfgf the fourth district at least
1,000 At those whose names appear
•tat on the lists as drawn at Washington will ba called in before the draft
board. They figure that about 25 per
e*nt of til* number drawn may be ac-
eepted ttr service, and lt Is stated
that thia la a much'"larger per cent
than are- found available ot the regular enlistments for military aervlce
for the U. 8. army. It Is within
bound* to say, you need not call your-
aelf exempt from tbe draft unless
your number waa drawn as far down
tb* list a* the number required multiplied by four or perhaps five.
The local board has not received
tka) official list of tbe drawing and
cannot Mt until thia 1* received.
