I "Thin tremendous increase in the cost of dally transportation would hit every family living along the trolley lines, and would tend to keop others from making their homes in New Jersey," iays Secretary V. B. Kelly, of the association. "To the average family It would mean an increase of from $30 to $40 per year in expense of this character without counting anything for pleasure travel on Sundays and holidays. The matter Is so important that every community in the county through which the trolley lines run should be represented by officials or citizens or both. Every civic organization should be repre-nented. Kveryone who can possibly do so is urged to attend so that there may be a full and aggressive expression of public sentiment.

NEW DRAFT BILL UP INSENATE Action on Measure Calling 700,000 More Young Men to Register Expected Soon Washington. Mar. 25. With the German driva spurring it to action. Congress again today gave its attention to measures to increase America's fighting strength. The Senate was ready . to act promptly on the bill making available for the draft 700,000 young men who ime reached the age of 21 years since June 5, Registration Pay. Final action was also scheduled for the resolution providing for the registration of the aliens made subject to the draft under treaties already signed or under negotiation. This measure, it has been estimated, will Increase America's fighting forces by half a million more men. These two measures would give the nation as many men as can be trained for many months to come. Before final action is taken on the new Draft Bill .however. Senator New, of Indiana, will demand a test vote on Universal Military Service. The bill, as it stands now, authorizes the drafting of young men as they attain the age of 21 years from time to time, whenever the President decides they are required. Senator New has an amendment to make the measure permanently operative which would mean the equivalent of universal service. -The vote' on the amendment will furnish a test of the strength of universal service sentiment in the Senate. .
