Barry Adage, 30 May 1917

Sheriff Shive Appointed the Chief Registrators.
The United States government has taken the preliminary steps toward putting into effect the selective service system for raising an army of one million men, as is evident from a sack received by Sheriff Robert A. Shive, of this county, containing the blanks for registration of all men between the ages of 21 and 30. The sheriff must give an exact accounting for every card received whether it is filled out or not. The registration cards contain blanks for answer to fourteen questions which include the name, birth, occupation, whether naturalized citizens or not, what dependants the signer has, and whether married or single, etc. The sheriff has received special instructions in the manner of procedure which the government requests be withheld from publication. As soon as the conscription law is passed by congress and the president signs the bill, orders will be sent out to begin registration. It is the opinion that Pike county will be called on to furnish soldiers, less those enlisted since April 1, 1917. Young men engaged in farming and thoroughly established as renters or proficient as farm hands, may be exempted from the first conscription. [questions listed and exemptions explained] "No exemption or exclusion shall continue when a cause therefore no longer exists; Provided, that notwithstanding the exemptions enumerated here, each state, territory and the District of Columbia shall be required to supply its quota in the proportion that its population bears to the population of the United States."
