Los Angeles Has Troubles
The Socialist colony at Llano del
Rio, in the Antelope valley near Los
Angeles, has not sulved all the proB

of the colony has moved to Stables,
Louisiana, where the rainfall -comes

Several families from Salem are in

of Mr. Newman and Mr. Pearcy. Jack
Frost, while not a member of the col
ony, is understood to have invested.
While those interested in the colony
claim that its affairs are prosperous,
yet it seems that about 200 of the
faithful found it advisable to move to
the colony at Stables, Louisiana.
After the Llano del Rio company
got into financial straits some time
ago and the report of the commission

publicity, a Nevada corporation was
formed and the holdings of th.e Del

CLASS ONE SMALL
lil SOI DISTRICTS
Washington, April 11. Provost
Marshal General Crowdor today order
ed a thorough investigation of local
draft board classifications in districts
where the percentage of class one men
is singularly small.
The inquiries are the result of con
gressional opposition to Crowder's plan
to base the quotas for future drafts on
the number in class one, instead of
the total liuimbcr registered or the pop
ulation. In some districts, comparatively few,
the percentage of class one men is
only 17, while in other districts it is
45 or 50. Several congressmen claim
that some local boards have deliber
ately adopted the policy of cutting
down the percentage of class one men
to, keep their quotas lower.
"The investigations are being or
dered just as rapidly as it is found
there is the least cause for one," it
