18 TO 36, ARE
Single Men of Nation Will Be
Inducted Into Army
Washington, Sept. 6—Large num
bers of single men between the ages
of nineteen and thirty-six who will
register on September 12 and are
without occupational or domestic ob
ligations are to be inducted- into the
military service during October.
General Crowtler in outlining yes
terday many of the features relative
to the new registration, said that as
soon as the new questionnaires are
returned by the registrants "the
boards will proceed lirst to examine
and classify lirst of all the ques
tionnaires of these age groups that
the President may designate."
"This designation has not yet been
made," General Crowder said, but he
"This prior examination of the
questionnaires of the age groups,
which arc to be lirst liable to call,
will enable the boards to be prompt
with a sufficient number of men to
fill the October requisitions."
. 18 to :l the Limit
Although General Crowder de
clined to state what ages would be
included In this special class, Secre
tary of War Baker indicated several
days ago his approval of the plan to
expedite the work of sending of men
to the training camps by classifica
tion of men within the ages of nine
teen to twenty-one and thirty-one
to thirty-six.
This means simply that much time
will be saved by examining the ques
tionnaires of such men and leave the
registrants in the eighteen-year and
thirty-six to forty-live classes, which
offer greater complications, for later
examination. The eighteen-year class
presents a special problem, due to
the educational plans now being per
fected, while the thirty-six to forty
five will furnish a relatively smaller
number of men for the Army, due to
industrial, domestic and physical rea
Constant Flow of Men
General Crowder said to-day that
new speed records are required of the
local draft boards between registra
tion day and January 1 if a constant
flow of men to the training camps
is to be maintained, and much valu
able time will be saved by laying
aside the questionnaires of the eigh
teen and the thirty-six-forty-five
classes and proceeding with the clas
sification of the nineteen-twenty and
thirty-one-thirty-six groups.
"As I have stated on several occa
sions." General Crowder said, "tne
supply of men in Class 1, under the
old age limit, will have been ex
hausted or practically so by the end
of this month. To prevent an inter
ruption in the flow of men to the
camps we must begin inducting men
of the new classes into the service
next month; whether they can do so
depends entirely upon the energy of
the local boards and the co-operation
of all parties concerned. There will
be some men left over from the Au
gust 24 registration, which fact will
aid me in meeting the initial calls
for October."
Capt. Roosevelt Sees
Little Son Born Since
He Went to France
Oyster Bay. L. T., Sept. 6.—Cap
tain Archibald B. Roosevelt, first of
the four sons of Colonel Roosevelt
to be wounded in action, spent one |
night this week at the family home
at Sagamore Hill, after surgeons at
the Army Base Hospital at Wil
llamsbridge had granted him an
oternight leave so that he could
come here to see his five-months
old son, Archie, who was >orn in
Boston while Captain Roosevelt was
in France.
While the surgeons were making
minute examination of the shrapnel
wounds in his arm Captain Roose
velt told them that he would like
to see his young son at Sagamore
Hill. Upon learning that the offi
cer had never seen the child the
surgeon said tha • he could leave the
hospital for the night upon condition
that he would be "careful." De
spite the slight stiffness of the
healed wounds in his right knee
Captain Roosevelt made good speed
back to the visitors' room with the
news. The surgeon followed him.
"Do you call running being careful?"
When the motor drew up at Saga
more Hill, Archie, Jr., was asleep
in a carriage under a tree. He ob
jected at being disturbed in tones
that stirred the admiration of his
grandfather, but he became quiet
when his interest was directed to
the gold and blue stripes on the
sleeve of his father's uniform, de
noting a year's service at the front
and a wound in battle.
Colonel Roosevelt and his wife re
mained on the veranda watching
Captain and Mrs. Roosevelt as they
sat under the tree with the baby.
Archie's mother expressed fear that
he might strain his arm trying to
hold the baby, apd the Colonel said
it probably was a good thing that
the surgeon wasn't the>e to oversee
his efforts.
Captain Roosevelt's arm is para
lyzed because shrapnel frag
ments cut the nerves in the el
bow and he is forbidden to try to
raise it from his side. It is not in
a sling, but is bound in a bandage of
elastic and linen. Surgeons here
have expressed no opinion upon the
condition of the arm, but it was re
peated that surgeons in France said
it would be several months before
he would be able to use it freely.
The wound in his knee is healed
completely and he is not lame.
Gouraud, French Army
Chief, Lauds Rainbow
With the American Forces North
of Soissons, Sept. 6.—ln an interview
yesterday by General Gouraud, the
famous French army chief, said 'he
Americans had acquitted themselves
wonderfully well both in the defen
sive and offensive fighting, bearing
the brunt of the great German at
tack In the Champagne between July
15 and 25.
General Gouraud stated that the
42d ("Rq,inbow") division occupied
positions in the battle zone along
side the finest French troops, fight
ing equally bravely and gallantly.
"American may he exceedingly
proud of her army," said General
Gouraud. "It Is already showing
ability and evincing magnificent pos
sibilities of becoming among the fin
est troops In the world." '
