 First men drafted

CLAY COUNTY’S SOLDIERY

Verified List of Men in Clay Co. Called for in the Government’s First Drawing

The first call for Clay County will be for 214 men out of which 107 will be selected. If the exemptions are more than 50% of the total number, additional calls will be made until the full quota of 107 fit men have been selected.

Our County Exemption Board is now waiting for final advice from General Dickerson. Soon as this information is received ample notice will be given to all who must appear for examination. Examinations will be held in Dr. E.C. Park’s, Jr., office at Flora.

Below is the verified list of the men in Clay County drawn at Washington last Friday.

The second column of figures, from 1 to 320, are the key numbers. They show the order in which the men were drawn.
