Governor of California Urged
to Pardon Man Under
lrovost Marshal-General's Latest
Order to Mobilize Is Simulta
neous With Registra
tion of 1918.
WASHINGTON, June 3. While a
million young Americans Just turned
21 were registered today for service in
the war for world, freedom, orders
went out from the office of Provost
Marshal-General Crowder to the Gov
ernors of all states, except -'-rlzona, fon

This was In addition to 40,000 negro

selective service men called to the
colors to 1.595,704, and when they are
In camp the Nation's Army will num

Perfect Order Reported.
The registration today ' apparently
was attended by the perfect order that
marked the enrolling a year ago of
The men who registered today have
become of age since the first registra
tion day, June 5, 1917. Military au
thorities estimate that from their
number there will be had 750,000 men
fit for active duty.
While an act of Congress requires
that the new registrants be placed at
the bottom of the class to which they
are assigned, many of them may soon
be called to the colors, as today's
requisition upon Governors probably
will exhaust the finst class in some
states. While no formal explanation
was made, this was believed to have
been the reason why Arizona was not
Included In today's call.
Four Enrollments Yearly Probable.
Registration days for men become
21 years of age probably will be fixed
every three months hereafter. It Is
estimated that 1,000,000 men become of
age yearly, and the new. registrants
are expected to go far toward keeping
up the first class In each state from
which thus far all men for the Na
tional Army have been drawn.
Assignments for the men called to
the colors under today's order indi
cate the rapidity with which troops
now are moving overseas. In nearly
very instance the registrants under
today's requisition are assigned to Na
tional Army cantonments, whereas re
cently when calls were made it was
necessary to send the men to National
Guard, regulan Army and other camps
because the cantonments were filled.
Illinois is directed to furnish 28,500
men under the latest call, more than
double the number called from New
York, which is second on the list.

It is increasingly evident as the re
ports accumulate that the U-boats are
avoiding armed craft and the vigil

far away from the principal ports.

PARIS. Juna 6. (By Havai Agency.)
The position of the Clemencreau gov

of the vote of confidence given it yes
terday in the House of Deputies.
The minority, which voted in opposi
tion to the government, included 85
Socialists. 19 Radical Socialists belong
ing to the almost permanent opposi
tion and six other members belonging
to the different shades of political faith
on the left.
The Premier argued that this was
not the time to discuss military opera
tions and the deputies upheld him in a
somewhat stormy session.
Cool and collected as he walked back
and forth on the wide tribune while a
storm of Interruptions from the So
cialists surged up from the House, the
veteran leader resembled a weather
beaten captain pacing the bridge of bis
ship, lashed by a heavy gale.
The Premier ppoke without bitterness
and, when referring to the sights he
had seen at the front recently, his voice
assumed a tone of intense sadness.
Speaker Deschanel seemed powerless
to quell the Socialist uproar. The Pre
mier folded his arms and surveyed the
-Socialist benches earnestly and pa
tiently. When the interruption did not
subside, he suddenly descended from
