New l'ork. An nimy of 4,78,000 of
men between cigliteou and fdrty-llve
years old n ror military service Is
avnllnblo hi this country, according to
the cHtlinnfo of an Investigating staff
of tlio executive com tnltti'o of tbo may-
or's committee on nutlouul defense.
A still jgrcuter n timber nilglit be put
under nrins In a serious emergency, ac
cording to the committee's report, by
tbo recruiting of older men, by tho
lowering of physical standards and by
the employ went of women iu occupa
Uons now open only to men.
Tho task of ctttlmutlug the total re
sources of the nation In men available
for military scrvlco between the ages
of eighteen and forty-five. Inclusive, is
complex. . For into this calculation
thefc enter many uncertain factors. In
addition to the morbidity rate and the
physical rejection rate there is to bo
considered the dependency of families
and the need of men of mature years
in tbo business and industry of the
In 1010 the males from eighteen to
forty-flve years old In tho United States
numbered 21,071,07a Although approx-
imateIy l,(XX) were aliens and there-
officials of tho census bureau consider
that the Increase In population be
tween 1010 and the summer of 1010
has about compensated for these.
Through a deduction of 2Vj I'cr cent
for morbidity, the, total of 21,071,070
becomes 0,511,300, nnd through a de
duction of about 12Vj per cent for puys-
leal defects there is a further reduction

have been carefully examined, and the
effort hns becji made to rea"h an ap
proximate estimate of the number that
could bo simrcd for military duty In a ;
serious emergency. This leads to th?
estimate that 17,000.000 out of the XO,
091,501 employed, or 53-1 per cent. :
