legal representative of the accused.
"We find that ths charges brought
by Messra Ditchburn and Dormitzer

Item from an Eastern paper in which
a dispatch sent out from Washington
under date of January 26 stated that
"Radical revision of the regulations
governing physical examination of men
summoned before draft boards for serv

"We certainly are at a great disad
vantage way out here." he commented.
Some examining boards of the state'
have already reported to Captain Culli

physical examinations of sll Class I
men of their division. How any
changed regulations may be mad to
apply to men in those divisions is one
problem that remains unsolved.

On th other hand, many boards,
even though but two or three days' de

to pass upon their Class I registrants
before the time limit expires. An ex
tension beyond February 15. or tacit
disregard of the limit, offers ths only
solution for such divisions.
Captain Cullison declared he has not

changes In examinations or physical

From other sources, including the I
Washington dispatch of January IS. It
is gleaned that the lid Is being damped
