Navarro County WWI Index


Examination of Enlisted Men Concluded.
The board announced to a Sun representative
today about 2 p. m. that
they had examined about 360 registered
men up to that hour and that the
work of making examinations would,
be concluded this afternoon and that
on tomorrow they would be ready to
give out the list of all who have been
accepted and those who have been rejected.

Exemption Board No. 2.
The board met Monday and at once
entered upon the work of examining
the boys for physical fitness. The ac-
tive working force was composed of
R. S. Loyd, J. L. Cox, Dr. Arthur Wil-
kinson, Dr. Roberts near Corsicana
Dr. Bates, Purdon, with Oscar Ingram
and Clark Wilkinson clerks to make
The first day, Monday, there were
108 examined and of this number 33
were, under the requirements, physic-
cally disqualified.
Out of the 133 examined first day
there were only thirteen who did not
claim exemption.
Tuesday there were 104 examined
and 37 disqualified and therefore ex-
empt, 62 claimed exemption and their
claims will be gone over later. Only
15 on Tuesday out of 104 put in no
claim to be exempt.
Wednesday was the last day and
the work was so heavy that, we could
not get it in time for paper.
Those who claim exemptions be-
cause of wives to support and chil-
dren dependent upon them, put in
their claims and were given blanks to
fill showing upon what grounds they
based claim. Quite a large per cent
secured these blanks and they have
ten days in which to make and file
claim, so it will be some time before
these will know whether they are ac-
cepted or allowed to stay at home.
Just as soon as we can get the data
we will print list of those accepted
and those disqualified. Blooming
