Married Men Exempt Stars and Stripes
Washington, May 29.—Married
men will be exempt on the first draft.
They must register, however, and be
subject to service when more men are

lated, the two points mentioned above
have been settled. They are embodied
in a tentative list of rules prepared
by the distinguished committee of
civilians called together by Presi-
dent Wilson and working on the ex-
emption features with the provost
marshal general. The conference with
the higher and responsible officials, it
was learned today, has resulted in ap-
psoval of the two major points.
The two questions of exemption of
men with dependents and those need-
ed in industrial work at home have
proved the most difficult to work out
in a way to secure anything like even-
handed justice in operation. The diffi-
culty, it is stated, of determining
whether or not a married man was
actually needed to support his family
at home was the consideration that
finally determined the officials to ex-
empt all married men.
As to the men with other dependent
relatives, such as an aged mother or
father, the decision will be up to the

of THE CIVIC COMMITTEE.
Meeting at droits
One of the biggest events of the
Hamilton-Brock revival was the suc-
cessful meeting held at the Grotts
school house last night. Rev. Wick-
izer preached the sermon in the ab-
sence of Evangelist Hamilton, and at
its close five additions were made to
the present number of converts. The
Brocks had charge of the music with
Mrs. Hamilton at the organ. They

The Real Value
of Good Cake
is ol'ten underestimated. The hard experience of this war
has proven that the old-fashioned soldiers' ration of pork
and beans and black*coffee without sugar was absolutely
wrong; that to work hard, to fight hard and minimize dis-
eases, sweets are absolutely necessary. Now the soldier

To try to do without cake. We should learn from the ex-
perience of the fighting man that good cake supplies a real
need of the body, that it furnishes more real food for its
