Washington.—Every man of draft

under a drastic amendment of the
selective service regulations an-
nounced by Provost Marshal General
Crowder. Not only Idlers, but all

held to be non-useful occupations are
to be haled before the local boards

also Include waiters, and bartend-

tendants of clubs,, hotels,, stores,
etc., domestics and clerks In stores.
Baseball players, as well as jock,

profeslsoual sportsmen, Genor&l
Crowder said, will be affected by the
regulations, If strictly enforced. Gen

to make specific rulings at this time
and would make rulings only when
cases come to him from local boards
after July 1.

A man may be at the bottom of
Class 1 or even In Class 4, but if he
falls within the regulations and re-
fuses to take useful employment he
will be given a new number in Class
1 that will send him into military
service forthwith. Local boards are

Will Help Labor.
Both the military authorities and
department of labor officials believe it
will go a long way toward solving the
labor problem for farmers, Bhip-build-
ers and munitions makers and will
end for the present at least, talk of
conscription of labor. Announcement
gives notice significantly that the list
of non-usefuL occupations will be ex-
tended from time to time as necessity
The statement of the provost mar-
shall general’s office follows:
“Provost Marshal General Crowder
announced an amendment to the se-
lective service regulations which deals
with the great question of compelling
men not engaged in a useful occupa-
tion immediately to apply themselves
to some form of labor contributing to
the general good. The idler, too, will
find himself confronted with the al.
fernative of finding suitable employ-
ment or entering the army.
Given Until July 1.
“This regulation provides that after
July 1 any registrant who Is found by
the local board to be a habitual idler
or not engaged in some useful occupa-
tion, shall be summoned before the
board, given a chance to explain and
In the absence of a satisfactory ex-
planation, to be inducted into the mil.
itary service of the United States.
“Any local board will be authorized
to take some action whether It has
original jurisdiction of the registrant
or not; in other words, any man loaf-
ing around a pool room in Chicago
may be held to answer to a Chicago
board even though he may have reg-
istered In New York and lived there
most of his life.
“The regulations, which apply to Idle
registrants, will be deemed to apply
also to gamblerB of all description,
and employes and attendants of Duck-
et shops and race tracks, fortune tell-
ers, clairvoyants, palmists and the
like, who for the purpose of the regu-
lations shall be considered as idlers.

Two brothers, Angus and Duncan,
who worked a email farm, had the
misfortune to lose by death their sis-
ter, who was their housekeeper. They
tried to do the housework themselves
for a time, but It wasn’t a success. So
one day Angus, the elder, said to his
brother: “Duncan, we’ll need to look
aboot an’ see If ye canna get a wife.”
"Na, na," replied Duncan; "you are
the oldest, Angus, an’ the farm De-
longs to you."
"But you are likely to live longest,
Duncan," continued Angus, “so you’d
better be the ane to tak’ a wife.”
“Oh, nyl" said Duncan resignedly;
"it’s aye the same way here; when-
ever there’s any thankless job to bs
done it’s me that has to do it.”
