Washington, D. C The trail of the
government's pursuit of illegal profi
teers on war contracts Wednesday led
to the arrest in New York of Lieuten
ant James C. Staley, a reserve army
officer, on a charge of accepting money
from the Truefit Raincoat company, of
New York, for the contract, which he
promised to procure.
After being arrested, Lieutenant
Staley made a complete confession of
his part in the transaction, department
of Justice officials said, and gave much
valuable information, which may lead
to the 'detection of other cases of
fraud. He will be tried by court martial.
The arrest was made by
the department of Justice, who had
followed the officer during his inspec
tion of the plant of the raincoat com
pany, whose proprietors acted in co
operation with the government to de
tect the fraud.
The secret agents arrested Staley
immediately after he was said to have
received a sum of money from Joshua
Rosenthal and Louis Wener, proprie
tors of the plant.
It was charged that he had told
them he would expect more money as
soon as they got the contracts which
they sought for 50,000 raincoats cost
ing nearly $250,000,

said to contemplate the arming of 4.

would mean the calling of 1,000,000
men betwen July and January, and the

tion, but of those placed in that class
under the recent registration, as well
as some 200,000 expected to be put in
that class as the result of the reclassi
fication recently ordered.
should congress decide that it is
necessary at this time to extend tne
draft age limits below 21 or above 30,
or both, no opposition will be offered
by the War department.
In authorizing this statement, Sec
retary Baker said the department could
