All Men Between 18 and 46 Registering
Yesterday was registration day when men between the ages of 18
and 46 were ordered to register. In LeMars flags were flying to
mark the day and in the afternoon a number of offices and stores
were closed. About half past four the LeMars band turned out and
began playing patriotic airs.
It is anticipated that the registration in the county will be
heavier than was first expected as demands for registration cards
were in from several precincts. It is expected over 500 within
the prescribed ages will register in LeMars.
At five o'clock 171 had registered in the First ward, 107 in the
Second ward and 168 in the Third ward.
