Washington June 7. With the double
purpose of lncres(or Hie number or men

rslrer artriilnlsiiallon of the actor
live service law. Provost Marshal Hen
Tal Crowder today telegraphed govem-
ors of all stale. asking immediate re-
investigation or the draft classification
" lista everywhere.
Class one already exhausted in some
localities by the repeated calls contains
.7 per cent of all the registrants ec
'i nil i to the national average but per-
centages In the 4.S0O local cximpttoa
boards districts vary materially both up
and down from the average figure.
Believes Boards imposed i pun.
By "slacker marriages ' and ungrounded
claim of right to Industrial or agricul
tural exemption tieneral crowder
llevas soma registrants have Imposed
upon mo locst boards to escape service
while in other districts an application
of the regulations has been perhaps
stricter than Is Intended. The governors
and the appeal agents are asked to In-
vestigate and upon evidence to ask boards
to reclassify men. Assistance of the pub-
lic through supplying Information to the
boards also Is asked.
"Tins office has reached the con
clusion." said the provost marshal gen-
eral "that corrective procedure can be
made moat effective by revislou by tbe
locsl boards wlib the hearty and active
assistance of government appeal agent
and members of legal advisory boards.
"You will therefore Issue instructions
that they shall immediately proceed to a
carerul examination or all the question-
naires and records In the classes of
rases herein after Indicated and make
such recommendations to the local
board as they may deem necessary.
Local boaxde government agents and
members of legal advisory boards should
direct special attention to the following
classes or cases:
Thousands Wrragly Classed.
"Class two A. and B.; class three A.
B. and C; and class four A. Thousands
of registrants are now In class four
who should be In class two or class one.

structed to appeal every case where tbe
reclassification Is not convincingly cor-

a 'mus and member of legal advisory

SPANISH EDITION OF MORNING
TIMES SUSPENDS PUBLICATION
After carefully considering the growing public sentiment
in the United State against foreign -language papers the
Morning Times management has decided to discontinue the
publication of iu Spanish edition for the present There is
no feeling that the Spanish edition of the Morning Times
ha been the object of any complaint for it is at well-kpown
fact that the policy of the Morning Times is and has been
strictly anb-Pruattan which policy has been rigidly adhered
to in its Spanish edition. Because of its excellent new ser-
vice and fair and impartía I treatment of the big problem of
the day it discontinuance will undoubtedly be regretted
by it many subscribwrs throughout the large territory in
which it ha circuUtad for the past four years and in which
it ha many Spaniak-speaxking friend. However the Morn-
ing Time realizes that these are extraordinary time and that
sacrifice in many case must be road by each and every
one of ua.
