In addition to the above boys several other registrants who have volunteered for immediate induction for special training in various lines will leave soon.

On July 14th, Leo. J. Deiderick, of Chester will leave for Mooseheart, IL. for training in concrete work. On the same date, the following will leave for Sioux City, Iowa, High School for training in various lines, including carpentering, wireless radio work, etc.

Evans, Lloyd E.Cresco
Peters, ErnestCresco
Davis, Ellis GordonLime Springs

The last named young man was rejected at his first examination on account of defective teeth, but spent $90 for work on them to enable him to pass a second examination. With such a spirit he will doubtless make a good soldier.

Three registrants have also been selected to leave at a date still unannounced, for the State University at Austin, Texas, to take training in auto mechanics. Those selected are:

Fairchild, JoyChester
Chyle, Frank T.Protlvin
Qvern, Henry A.Cresco

Frank Guyette leaves to-day for Camp Dodge to take the place of a Howard County man included in one of the drafts, but who failed to report for duty and whose whereabouts are unknown.
