It is now the law bf the land that every man over twenty-one and under thirty-six may be picked, by having bis number drawn but bf the hat, tP spend a year in learn­ ing the rudiments of soldiering. That doesn t mean that any great proportion of men are going to he taken away from their jobs and their families, out of any communities. T h e present plan o f calling 800,- 000 men to the colors in the first year means that, at the m o s t one man in twenty, within the prescribed age limit, w ill take his turn at learning how to help defend his country if that becom es necessary . There is, nothing whatever in the law, as passed, which involves any of the selected trainees risking his life. N o b o d y is going to he stood up and shot at. These men are not being picked to fight, but to learn how to fight if and when con-’ ditions' arise when Americans shall again have to fight to -preserve their liberties. W e had no such training reserves the last time the United States went to war. W e sent into the front lines in France boys who had hardly m ore than, half as much preliminary training as every one of the men to be selected under the - n ew law will receive. E v erybody hopes that none of them will ever be called upon to fire a single shot at an enem y of the Republic, but if the occasion arises it is better for them and for the nation to have them at least partly trained. A&hor of *tHow to Win Friends and Influence People,** PR IN CIPL E S O F SU C C E S S A few years ago a fourteen-year-old boy w a lked into the Union Pacific Railroad office in North Platte, Nebraska, and asked for a job as office boy. There were nine children in the family, and the father was making fifty-five dollars a iponth. That meant that each member o f the family was living on five dollars a month, or about I 7 dents a day. The boy. \X illiam M. Jeffers, g o t the job, which paid fifteen dollars a month— and was delighted. He went to work at seven o clock in the evening and aworked till seven in the morning. Now what d o you suppose he d id with his spare time? Well, he came straight back to the office and worked, d oing more than he was called on to do! M ost of the boys o f his age spent their extra time loafing on the street, playing cards, or hanging around the pool halls. But not this boy! He studied telegraphy. He would have to know telegraphy to get the job that lay just ahead of his— and h e w a s deter­ mined to get it. With grit and determination like that, you know the re-, suit. Although he did not realize it at the time, h e established a principle which changed his w h o le life course. He did more work than he was called r>n to do. H e did not try ‘‘to just get by.\ In tw o years he was promoted to a clerkship in the main­ tenance department, where he carried out his principle of doing more than he was called on to do. Two years later he was jum p ed again— train dispatcher this time. In his new job he follow ed the same principle: more work than he was paid to do. Two years later, he was appointed chief dispatcher. Other boys who had gone to work at about the time he bad. and wKb were doing no more than they were paid for. were still in small inconsequential jobs. At twenty-nine,. he was appointed trainmaster at Gxeen River, W yomihg. His principle worked there, too. At thir­ ty-one he was made assistant superintendent of the Green .River division. At forty he was general manager. Up and up he went, Clear to the top. He became pres­ ident of the famous \L‘ P.\ Meantime his salary w a s going up, too. He was getting in..one hour and .three minutes exact­ ly the amount he had received for a m o n t h ’s w or k w h e n h e started. How simple the principle he stumbled on. Merely to do a little more work than he was. paid to do. O f course, this meant overtime work, long hours. But didn t it pay? Mr. Jeffers doesn't own a copyright or a patent on that principle of success. Anybody in the world can apply it. W hy don't you? Of d r s e you’ll get discouraged- You'll say, ‘'What’s the use? I'll take it easy today and slip out early.” Tp do that may rnake the difference between failure arid success for you. Nation Short Sermon for Week By REV. ROBERT H.

But in the alphemy of i *' ' ' SPECIAL TO UNXON-CAZETTE Washington, September 25— Of the most immediate import­ ance to almost every family in the United States is the final disposition by Congress, of the Selective Training and ‘service _ m easure which— requires the registration of every man be­ tween the ages of twonty-ong a.nd thirty-five for possible drafting for military pr other defensive service under the Government. There are about i6,50Q,000 men who come within that age., limit. All are to be registered by local boards, beginning October 15 The selection of 400,006 for the first draft is to begin, Nov­ ember 15. Choice of the indivi­ duals drafted will be by num­ bers drawn by lot, as was done in the World 'War. There axe no exemptions pro­ vided by law except that con­ scientious objectors may claim exemption and the Department of Justice will pass on the truth or falsity of the objector’s complaint. If it is decided that he is exempt from fighting ser­ vice he is still liable for any kind of non-combatant service. Stndetnts Exempt Students who entered college this year, if drafted, may havp their service deferred until aft­ er the completion of the present college year. The drafting of men after their numbers have been called wiil be in the hands of local, boards,, on which, no Army or Navy offi­ cer may serve If any man. whose number is called attempts to dodge the draft he will be sub­ ject to trial before a civil court and not by a court martial. Each man drafted will, under­ go a thorough physical examin­ ation at the beginning of his service and another when he has finished the one yqar term of training, so that no false claims may later be made against the Government for in­ juries or physical\ deterioration resulting from the training, Drafted men will be assigned to duty either with the Arniy, the Navy-oc- the. Marines - If- fi man is taken out Of a job his employer is required to give him his job back, or another job equally good, at the end of his year’s training. Each drafted man. if a registered voter, will be allowed to go home to vote on election day. if that requires no more than a day’s journey; otherwise he may send his bal­ lot by mail Each man drafted for service will receive, in addition to lodg­ ing. food and clothing, $21 per month for the first four months and thereafter a minimum, of $30 pec month with a sliding scale of increases as he de- veiopes special ability or tech­ nical skills, until fie- may be drawing as high as $85 per month. If a previous employer wishes to continue paying a drafted, man all or p art of his salary, all laws which would forbid that are repealed. ’Employers are re­ quired to consider all selected men as on furlough or leave of absence; and an employer may not fill any drafted man’s pla.ee with members of the Communist party or the German-American Bund Service Limited The service of men drafted under this law is limited to one year's training, unless Cpngress declares the national security requires an extension of that period In all, the plan is to make two drafts of 4^0,000 men each, in the course of the ne;ct six; months, or as soon as jproper housing facilities can be pro­ vided for them. These added to approximately ’ 250,000 members of the ^rational Guard already called or about to be called in­ to servipe, and about the same number of soldiers in the regu­ lar army, will give the nucleus of a military force of 1,300,000 men. It is not expected that any-, thing like complete military training, can be given in one yegr's time, The men will learn, however, how to handle fire­ arms, to obey orders, and will develop sound ahd rugged phy­ siques and gain experience in the discomforts of a soldiers life, even though they- do not become experts in handling tanks apd. anti-aircraft guns. Attached to the selective ser­ vice a c t is a tag which, in effect, renew s‘and re-emphasizes the provisions' of World War; legis­ lation authorizing the G.overn- em m ent orders for defense m a­ te r i a l Tax Supplement Supplemented by the new Ex­ cess Profit Tax legislation this is calculated, to satisfy most of the people who have been com­ plaining that it is unfair for the Government to draft men with^ out the same time drafting in­ dustry. There are still some gentlemen with Communistic learnings, both inside a n d out of the Government, who would like to see Uncle Sam fake over the factories bodily and try to run thepa under the eye of political commissars. There is no likeli­ hood that anything like that.
