C. -- The last step necessary to make the entire National Guard available for duty in France was taken by President Wilson Tues day with the Issue o f a proclamation drafting the state troop* into the Army o f the United States August 6. T a make certain that the purpose o f the national defense act is carried out, the proclamation also specfically de clares the men drafter) to be dis charged from the old m ilitia statu, on that date. In that way the constitutional re straint upon use o f m ilitia outside the country is avoided and the way paved for sending the regiments to the Euro pean front. Prior to the application o f the draft, regiments in the Northern and Eastern section o f the country are called into the Federal service as National Guardsmen in two increments to be mobilized on July 15 and 25. Many units already are Federalized and presumably they will be mobilized with the other troops from their states. The guard from the other states will be mobilized on the day of the draft. The arrangement was nec essary to provide for movement o f the regiments to their concentration camps without congestion. The operation o f the draft law was delayed until August 5 so that all regi ments can be taken into the army simultaneously. Fourteen camp sites for the 16 tactical divisions into which the guard w ill be organized have been selected already, and the m ilitary bu reau is preparing the railway routing o f the troops to the camps.

Ismdon — Halics, the strategic key to Lemberg, capital o f Galicia, has been captured by th* Russians, says a dispatch Wednesday from Reuter's Petrograd correspondent. Halics, 63 miles southeast o f l<em- berg, on the Dneister river, is *n im portant railroad junction and the most important key to the Galician capital. It la 18 miles north o f Stanislao ami about eight miles north o f Jexupol, raptured by the Russians under Gen- eraly Korniloff on Sunday. « The fall o f Halics was presaged by the success o f the Russians In break ing through the Austro-German tine between that town ami Stanislau, ami in driving the Austro-Germana to the Iximnlca river, which enters the Dnsls- ter a short distance above Halics. Halles w ai the center o f much heavy fighting laat August and September, and the Russians had captured Huko- wina and were attempting to reach l^m berg. Stanislau waa captured by the Rus sians in August, but they failed to take Haiirz after engaging in furious battles at Marianqiol and Monaaterzya- ka and forcing the Auatro-Germana to retire between the Zlota-I.ipa and the Dneister. In September llaliez was bombarded by the Rusaian artillery, but attempts to storm the town were unsucceskful. The fall o f llaliez probably will mean that the Auatro-Germana must retire from the present line along the Zlota-I.ipa from northeast o f llaliez through Brzezany and Zlochoff to Brody, In order to protect l^nnberg. Washington, D. C .— Reports that the food administration w ill fix an ar bitrary price o f less than $2 a bushel to the grower for the 1917 American wheat crop drew from Herbert Hoover this denial: “ It is not the intention o f the food administration to fix the price for wheat, nor is it expected that it will have any such powers. I f the 'food bill passes congress, however, we cer tainly w ill not stand for speculative buying.” Mr. Hoover and his associates are said to feel that the export price should be maintained at a figure that w ill be an inducement to farmers to increase production.
