DEVISED A MASTER KEY
Washington, July 19. Plans for
the draft drawing provide that every
registered man to be drawn shall ap appear
pear appear before the boards in the order in
which he was drawn. The boards
are directed -to call for 200 per cent
of their quota because of exemptions.
If this is not enough, they are to
draw more in order. Consequently
the serial numbers to be dealt with
range from one to the highest num number
ber number in the most populous districts.
That means that 1,374,000 men will be
. notified to appear for examination
within the next few days.
In each of the 4,557 exemption dis districts,
tricts, districts, among which the ten million
registration cards have been divided,
the cards have been given serial num
bers. The number of registrants in
each district varies from about 185 in
the smallest to more than 9,000 in the
largest, so that the serial numbers to
be dealt with in the drawing range
from one to between nine and ten
In order -to reduce the mechanical
process and make it possible for the
one thousand numbers drawn to
reach every man in every district, a
so-called master key has been devised.
The master key will fix the order in
which each group of thousands is to
be placed on the liability list which
will run from number one to more
than ten thousand. For instance if one
should be the first number drawn for
the key, all registration numbers in
the nine thousand group would go
into the first block at the head of the
list arranged in the order in which the
numbers one to one thousand come
out. In the second drawing, the dis districts
tricts districts with less than nine thousand
registrants therefore, would disre disregard
gard disregard this first block entirely and
would be affected only by the position
of numbers, for the blocks correspond corresponding
ing corresponding with the numbers of thousands of
registrations they have.
Application of the master key
makes it possible to apply fairly each
of the one thousand numbers drawn to
districts with more than one thousand
registrants. As a number is drawn it
will be added to each of the thousands
in excess of one thousand in each dis district.

For. instance, if 25 is the first num

2025, 3025,' 4025, 5025, 6025, 7025,
8025 and 9025.
By applying the master key, the
order in which the numbers will be
listed in each district will be deter determined.

9, 7, 1, 5, 2, 3, 0, 8, 4, 5, then the draw drawing

thousand would fix the first men to

2025, 3025, 25, 8025, 4025 and 6025.
The district with more than nine
thousand registrants thus will have
ten of its men assigned to their places

TRAMMELL AMONG THE TARDY
It is declared not only by our own
army staff, but by the war seasoned
generals of Europe, that the best
thing America can do to end the war
quickly is to build a big airplane fleet.
It is conceded that America is par
ticularly well adapted to do this
work. A bill appropriating the mon
ey for this vast enterprise a bill
framed on the advice of skilled mill
tary men,' and approved by the presi
dent, passed the House of Represen
tatives last week. It went to the
Senate, and was approved by the
Senate military committee in less
than an hour. When the bill was re
ported to the Senate objections were
raised, and it went over until next
week. And who were the objectors ?
They were Borah, Broussard, Cum
mins, Gore, Gronna, Hardwick, John
son of California; Kenyon, LaFollette
McKellar, McNary, Nelson, Norris,
Ransdell, Shields and Sutherland, and
with them was Park Trammell of

of Florida that one of her senators

'Simply delicious" is the verdict of all who have tasted
this cream of rare and pleasing flavor.
Tutti-Frutti ice cream is made of the purest of sweet cream
combined with ripe red cherries, pineapples and other fruits and
nuts. That's why it is so good.
You can enjoy this delightful ice cream at most of the good
drug stores and refreshment places today. If you live out of
town your dealer probably serves Tutti-Frutti. Ask for it.

very glad that I did so for they gave
me more relief than all the other med medicines
icines medicines I had taken put together. I
have- had no occasion to take any kid kidney

been permanent. The statement I
gave before praising, Doan's Kidney
