Washington, August -Regulations under which the new national army will be called to the colors, beginning September 1, were issued by Provost Marshall General Crowder. They detail the program under which every soldier of the draft army has been accepted by the adjutant general of the training cantonment to which he is assigned. The actual call for men will go from the provost marshal general to the state adjutant general. Each local board will be informed of its proportion and the adjutant general will fix the dates when men from his state shall entrain for camps. The local board will make out the list of men to fill the call from the roll of accepted men and will 1 fix the place and time of entrainment.

From the time specified for reporting to the local board for military duty, each man in respect of whom notice to report has been posted or mailed shall be in the military service of the United States. Prior to the arrival of the men at board headquarters, board members are instructed to find clean and sanitary places at hotels and lodging houses, and to arrange for meals. In its direction, the boards may grant permission for the men to remain at their homes. Arrived at the board headquarters at the hour fixed for reporting, the men will be drawn up, the roll called and agents will take them personally to their quarters, remaining with them until every arrangement for their comfort has been made. In structions are given that the quality of food furnished shall be good and the board is held liable for seeing that meals are adequate.

Retreat roll call at board headquarters, set for the afternoon of day of reporting to the board, will be the first military ceremony the drafted men pass through. The board members are directed to be present in person and to inform the men of their military status, impressing on them the fact that disobedience of orders is the gravest military crime. The light hand baggage containing toilet articles and a change of underclothing which the men are permitted to take with them to camp, will be inspected by the board and the lists and copies sent forward made out and copies of original registration cards prepared. For each district five alternates will be summoned to board headquarters in addition to men selected to fill the board quota. They will be held at the assembling point until train time to fill in vacancies should any of the levy fail to report.

Except for retreat roll call, the men will be given town liberty until forty-five minutes before train time. The board will select one man from the levy to place in charge of the party for its trip and he will name a second in command. The other men will be told that orders of these two men must be obeyed under pain of military discipline. Final verification of the list will be made just before entraining and if any one is missing an alternate will be sent in his place. It will be the duty of the commander of each party to watch over his men on the trip, see that none is left behind at any station, that all are fed regularly and that no liquor is furnished.

Should a train be delayed by accident, the commander of each party will telegraph the camp adjutant general for instructions. After the departure of the levy for camp, the local boards will gather up stragglers. If there is evidence of willful violation of orders, the offender will be reported to the adjutant general of the army as a deserter and the local police will be asked to arrest him on sight and turn him over to the nearest army post for trial. Where there was no intention to desert and the missing man reports of his own will, the board will send him on to camp with an explanation to his culpability. Arrived at the camp, the party will undergo final physical tion by army doctors.

If any are jected the local board will be notified and an alternate sent forward for MEN WILL GO TO CAMP.

No pupils should procure text books, nor other school supplies until directed by the teacher on the opening day. There are many changes this year in text books both in the grades and High school. Tuition is free to all high school pupils. The county pays it. In the grades all non-resident pupils will be charged two dollars per month tuition.

Pupils will be admitted to the high school on presentation of diploma, or certified grade card from another high school, or on passing a successful entrance examination in United States History, Grammar, Arithmetic, Geography, Reading, Physiology and Spelling. No one will be admitted to the high school on condition. No pupil in the grades will be given advanced standing except on promotion or on successfully passing an examination under the principal, teacher, and Superintendent. Pupils who plan to take this examination in subjects failed in last year should carefully review them. The examination will be given on the first day of school.

Juniors and Seniors will enroll in the forenoon of September 10, and Sophomores and Freshmen in the afternoon. The Seventh and Eighth grades will be transferred to the high school building and the Fifth and Sixth to the Grade building. It is thought that this change will be of great benefit to all concerned. The education and war authorities of nation and state have sent out earnest requests that young men of school age make their plans to remain in school this year, or until they complete their education. It is from these young men who fit themselves by hard work in school that the big and responsible positions in business and government will be filled.

Think over it carefully, boys, before quitting school, giving up the prospects of a fine job i in the future for a paltry place now. Make your plans to enroll in a good school next September. The Stockton high school offers this year, as usual the three following courses of study: College preparatory to any college or university in Kansas; the Normal Training, which prepares one for teaching, and the General course, largely elective, which gives an all-round education to those who wish neither to teach nor attend college. Parents should council with their children on chosing a course of study as much de-. pends upon the line of work to be (chosen.

The Normal Training course leads to what is practically a life state certificate, good in several other states. Young man, young woman, if you desire to teach, enroll this course and determine to pursue it to a succesful conclusion. 4 The Weeping Water (Neb.)
