The News prints herewith the of-
ficial list procured from the locad
exemption board of one hundred and
fifty young men In the county who
failed to return their questionnaires
to the board as required under reg-
ulations of the selective draft law
and who will shortly be regarded as
The local board delivers to the
police authorities a list of all such
men and at the same time causes
the list to be published in a news-
paper. Within five days after the
giving of the list to tho police and
its publication the men Involved
muht appear before the board and
make satisfactory explanation of
their delinquency. Those railing are
certified to the Adjutant General
for delinquency and tho Adjutant
General then issues orders that they
report for military duty at a certain
time and place. Those who report
within the time prescribed by the
Adjutant General may bo excused
for their delinquency upon satisfac-
tory explanation and upon recom-
mendation of their local board The
ones who fail to report use classed
as deserters and the fixed reward
of fifty dollars is then offered for
the apprehension of those so classified.
Desertion In time of war Is a ser
ious offense. Much of the delin-
quency here no doubt Is due to Ig-
norance and these young men
should get right before they get
themselves In bad.

IllAYLKiHT SAVINUS KILL
NOW A LAW
On I.ast Saturday XIrIiI of Present
I Month All Clocks in America
' Musi l Set Forward One
Hour Gaining Ilaj light.
The daylight saving bill was sign-
ed Tuesday by President Wilson. It
puts all clocks forward nn hour on
the last Sunday In March and turns
them back again the last Sunday in
The daylight saving plan will go
Into effert and be .observed without
the slightest disorganization or Im-
pairment of existing conditions. Tho
trains will run as usual and every
feature of dally life Into which the
element of time enters will remain
Hefore retiring on the last Satur-
day of this month the American
holseholder will set his clock nn
hournhead and then may go to
sleep' and forget entirely about day-
light saving until the last Saturday
of October. On that date he will re-
verse the process turning back the
j hands of the clock an hour and tho
j next day the Nation will again run
on sun ume.
In the summer the American man
actually will rise transact his dally
business and retire an hour earlier
than has been his custom but with
his clock an hour fast he will not
know the difference.
The plan's practicability and effi-
ciency has been effectively demon-
strated In twelve European coun-
tries. Advocates of the plan In piesent-
ing their case to Congress explained
that the following beneficial results
would be achieved:
"A great saving of illumlnants
such as oil gas and electric power;
marked conservation or coal. In-
creased manufacturing production is
the result of improvement In work-
ling conditions; general benefits to
the national health because of tli'j
additional hour of daylight which
may be devoted to recreation; re-
duction in the cost of living to some
who can raise garden truck for do-
mestlc consumption and Improve-
ment of the training conditions for
the fighting forces.

The whole Idea is that thouhands
of Americans have more thousands
of books of various kinds which
they haw no further use for save
to occupy library space. These same
books will serve to bring joy and
comfort to soldiers hence the Idea
which Is now being handled In u
manner of national scope.
Those who can are usged to de-
posit their books In any one of tho
following named collecting stations
where they will be taken and pro-
pared for Immediate shipment. Thoso
who cannot all with their books at
