The following was published in the Wahoo Paper in June of 1917. This is a list of the men who registered for the draft which was held in the fall of that year. You will find (?) placed where the print was hard to read.
The call to the colors brought out every known young man between 21 and 31 in Wahoo Tuesday. It was a unanimous response to the call of the president and accomplished without the least friction. But a very few, possibly not over a half a dozen, made claim for exemption. All were evidently willing to obey the call to arms without evasion if it was thought necessary for them to go to the front in the interest of humanity and liberty.
So far as heard from the same general spirit existed throughout the county. At East and West Stocking 231, including the flower of the country in every walk in life, went to the polling places and gave their names to the registrars without apparent regret. They were decorated with an appropriate badge by a bevy of ladies who worked at each polling place.
It is estimated that fully one-half of those registering are married men. The names of those who registered at the Wahoo booths Tuesday are as follows:
