Examining Board will Issue Summons
Today to 250 to Appear Next
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.



The county examing board, composed of County Clerk Allen, Sheriff Salisbury and Dr. George B. Dent will today send out notice to 250 of those who were drawn in the selective draft to appear before the board for physical examination. These two bundred and fifty are those who were first drawn as shown by the master list received from Washington Saturday and are taken in the rotation in which they were drawn at Washington. One-third of these 250 are cited to appear for examination next Sunday, one-third will appear Monday and the other third will appear Tuesday. Those who claim exemption will have seven days from the date of their notice to file their claims with the local board, which will pass on the dependency clause but not the vocational calling of the claimant. The claimant can take an appeal from the local board to the district board.

Those who come in for examination are warned against any attempt to magnify slight disability they may have as they may suffer from any such action. Where there is doubt as to the pjysical disability of the one examined, or of his claim of having dependents, the doubt will always be in favor of the government.

This forenoon the name of every one who registered and who may be subject to call for examinstation at some future time was posted at the entrance to the court house. This list is given in the rotation in which the respective names were drawn and the number under which they were drawn. If another call for examination of 250 men is made the registrant by consulting the list can tell whehter he will be included in the call.

The following are the 250 who have been summoned to appear on August 5th, 6th and 7th and it is expected that fully fifty percent will be exempted from one cuase or another. Lincoln County's quota under the draft is 115, but to make sure of that number 250 have been summoned.

The eighty first named in the list will be cited to appear Sunday, and the remaining 170 will be divided between Monday and Tuesday.
