World War I, Comanche County, Kansas


The Protection Post, February 17, 1918.

Boys in the New Draft List

The Physical examination of registrants of Class I has been completed by the local board for Comanche county and the men now know just where they stand. In only three cases did registrants appeal from the decision of the Local Board. In two of them the board was sustained and the men held for general military service, and in the other case the registrant was held for special military service. The examination papers of those examined at other places in most cases have not been received and they are still pending before the District Board a few cases of claims for exemption on industrial grounds. Some of these, probably, will be held for military service.

Of those reported last week as delinquent, two have been taken from the list. the questionnaires of George B. Hendershot and Clarence R. Griffiths have since been received.

Below is a list of those in class I, with their classification as to liability for military service. The numbers are their order number, or order in which the men will be called into service.
