Kimball Co. 5 HQRTEN PERIOD OF Appeals to President Subject to Same Regulations as Local Board Appeals. That all of the local boards of dis trict Xo. 3 might secure the certification of a sufficient number of names for the sending the second contingent of 40 per cent to Camp Custer without delay the district ap peal board has shortened the period of certification from 10 das-s to five. L'nder the former method the local boards of Genesee county, Flint No. 2. and Livingston county would not have been able to send their contin gents on the scheduled date. In the tiling of appeals from the decision of the district board to the president the adjutant general has subjected the district to the same obligations as the local boards in the filing with the higher body the reasons lor the disallowing of the claims. The following is the relative number of men to be certified back to the local boards; the lirst column consisting of complete Quota; the second column, number sent in first five per cent contingent; the third column, number to be sent between Sept. 19 and Sept. 23 in a 40 per cent contingent, the entire contin gent of each board going on a fixed date; the fourth column, number of names of men ready to be certified back to the local boards: -2 W21 112 116 101 141 211 66 109 Branch 5 2 Calhoun 2S1 Battle Creek ... .290 33 128 15 15 13 IS 2 7 9 15 11 11 12 174 43 Genesee 254 Flint Xo. 1 354 194 Flint Xo. 2 52S 160 79 125 87 Clinton 166 Gratiot 274 Hillsdale 214 Jackson Co. .204 .239 .130 .236 .124 .297 .297 .178 .133 SI 191 SS 173 Jackson City Ingham Lansing .... 60 123 13 10 15 10 94 99 71 119 71 Livingston . . 47 Shiawassee .

Al though the board has not considered such letters seriously in rendering decisions the statements made have been referred to the appeal agents for investigation. Modern machinery has also played a part in securing favorable actions upon the claims of farmers. Members of the board have said that the presence of modern machinery upon a farm Indicates that the farmer Is progressive. It has been the purpose of-the board to relieve the farms of no labor which might hold back the farm's best production. Few claims have been received in which the farmer claiming discharge did not have a farm of large acreage. William i. Parker. Leslie, a mail carrier, appealed the decision the Jackson county board on the grounds that he was physical unfit for army service. He claimed to have hernia and that he had been compelled to wear a truss. The board made a personal examination of the case. It was found that the truss was new and had not yet been soiled by wear. nor were there marks of the long wearing of a truss found upon the mail carrier's body. The physician found a slieht traco of hernia but declared that it was of a nature which would not hinder the man s service in the army nor did it warrant the wearing of a truss. 1 he following claims for discharee were allowed: Daniel D.

Bond, West Branch, CERTIFICATION Rev. Caroline Bartlett Crane in Appeal to Scarlet Women JACKSOX, Sept. 13. "Won't you do your bit in this terrible war, and leave the soldiers alone?" This is the pith of a wonderful appeal to the scarlet women of the country, which Rev. Caroline Bartlett Crane, chairman of the Wom an's committee, Michigan division. Council of National Defense, and also chairman of the Woman's Committee on War Preparedness, ap pointed by Governor Sleeper, asks the mothers of soldiers to make, as a means for their protection. " Mrs. Bartlett Crane suggested this appeal as one means for the solution of the terrible problem of ven ereal disease Wednesday afternoon. at a South Michigan conference called by the mayor and health officer of Jackson, for the purpose of discussing this phase of military camp protection with special reference to Camp Custer. And at tho close of the conference proper. meeting of the women in attendance was held to discuss Mrs. Crane's sug gestion. Mrs. Crane, in her appeal, assumed the common humanity of these women, and asked them as a fulfillment of their patriotic duty of their country and to future generations, to refrain from allowing themselves to become the menace which they might be to the men in cur army and navy. In part Mrs. Crane said: "Have we women done everything we can for the youths who are offering their lives for us. if we make no appeal to the womanhood in even the women we most fear? "Suppose we women led by the mothers who give their sons to their country's service were to make an address to these other women: "You are American women. Our flag gives you protection in whatever part of the world you go. Our soru; are going to fight and to die for you as much as for us their mothers. "'We are giving our boys with as brave hearts as we can. (Only mothers can know what it costs.) If they are to die for their country, we shall be proud, however sad. But if they are to return to us, we do not want the bitterness and shame of knowing that they are unclean, and unfit to be fathers to the next generation for whom we of today are fighting this war. "We may not always have done what we could for you. Many of us may have neglected and even wronged you. If so, we are suffering for it now whenwe think of the terrible evil that may come on our sons through you. But, whatever we have thoueht of you, we have always held one faith, that you had many traits of kindness: that you could be generous. "To this kindness and generosity we mothers now appeal. And to your patriotism, also for if you do not listen to our apjeal, countless Doys will be made unable to fight their country's battles, or, enfeebled by disease, will fight and lose their lives. And for that, you would not want to feel to blame. "Perhaps you do not understand all the evil that is wrought to men, and through them to wives and inno cent children. But we are going to try to reach you and tell you. and then beg you. as American women, to do your bit in this terrible war - and leave the soldiers alone.

The completion of this building will finish the building plan or the company and will take care of the fusion kettles ia the making of sodium nitrate. The main plant is now almost entirely equipped and will be ready for business within 10 days. The company has nearly a million pounds or raw material stored for the production department and is lined up adequately for obtaining a supply of raw materials at all times. Among the items of raw material on hand is 300,000 pounds of nitrate from Chili, nitrate being one of the prin cipal things necessary for the manufacture of some of the company's products. I The equipment of the company's ijbandoned plant in Melrose. Ct., has (den moved to the Lansing plant.

"By this may you not atone for some of the things that trouble your heart? And even though the world never knows, you will know, and will be lees unhappy. By so much, you will have helped to win this war for justice and mercy and may we all learn to be more just and merciful you to our boys, and we to you. "Suppose we were to make some I such appeal, I, for one, do not be- ! lieve it would be fruitless. I want the mothers to do it, and then, if that appeal meets with response from one single woman, we must build on that certainty of goodness in that woman, and help her to an honest occupation and a peaceful, self-respecting life. I am going to ask the women, at another meeting at the close of this, to join in malting such in appeal, and to open a way to reach the women called 'lost,' that they may find themselves, and find us ready to be their friends." For the soldiers themselves, faced with the temptations to sexual evils, Mrs. Bartlett Crane says: Appeal to the patriotism of our boys to keep their lives clean. Tell them they must not be slackers and traitors in the perpetual fight evory generation has to put up for the life and well-being of the next. Tell the soldier he is fighting this fight for the unborn, as Washington and La- Fayette fought for him and that ! that is the greatest thing any gener ation of men and women can have "The clean young soldier who dies on the field of battle closes accounts with the race. His gift is pure and priceless. The nation is whollv in his debt. But the soldier who returns, even with titles and decorations if he knows in his heart that he failed to keep soldierly command over himself, that he is 'unclean.' a menace to the community; most of all, a menace to the woman he loves, and that he stands in a way to con- ribute disease, insanity, and degen eracy to his own posterity how futile his field bravery will seem to him. and how heartily he will wish he had died in "going over the top."
