INDUSTRIAL SUCKERS WILL BE COMBED OUT OF DEFERRED LISTS Those Gaining a living Through Undesirable or Bmrmfnl Pursuits to Be Fnt to Useful Wort. ·WASHINGTON, Ajlrtl 6.--Drastic modfflcaUon of the draft classification lists Trtiich would affect the status of «v«T7 oa« ot the millions at ngis^ tered men is proposed In a plan .'submitted to President Wilson by the provost marshal general's office and the Department of Labor. 'While the .primary "purpose is the "purification" of the second, third and fourth classes ·of registrants who are not engaged in any productive industry, attention also ·would be given to lower section of Class 1, and the effect it» framers *e- lier« would le to solve the nation's labor problem. '· Tie ·proposal would utilize the draft machinery for putting industrial slackers to woric. Every -registered man who has been granted deferred classification would be given to under- 'stand that such deferinent. is not a legal right, but a privilege and that if unfair advantage is taken it will be summarily revoked. It.ts proposed to make a most careful survey of the lower sections of Class 1 and of other classes to iden- | tifythosc men who are idlers or who I are gaining their living through unde- ! sirable or "harmful" pursuits. Under the latter head, officials sutgar.t, might be listed gamblers, .bookmakers, lor races, pool room touts and others. The plan is not designed to interfere In the slightest with the so-called non-eeaen- tSal Industries. Subscribe to .Liberty Loan ' And Beat tie Wolfish Hun You are called on to .subscribe to the Third Liberty. Loan at good Interest as the best investment in the world. This is a patriotic duty yon should accept cheerfully and perform to the uttermost. V7e have sent from this, community several hun,- dred of our sons and brothers, tbe vrory flower of American manhood, to flght for and maintain all the. rights and liberties we hold most dear from- the. hordes of wolfish Huns who threaten the very existence of civilization to satisfy the insatiable ambir tion of the most slimy, blasphemous monster that ever disgraced God's green earth. Now I, by virtue of my office as Mayor of the City of Connellsville. do call on this community to subscribe liberally to. thjs third Joan and make it a complete success In Fayeite county. ·The necessity for financing and taking care of our boys in the trenches needs no argument and I feel satisfied that no apology . will be necessary for Connellsville In doing her full duty to make this loan a success. . .
