Two new names are added to our honor roll this week. Dick Hazeltine, who on first examination failed to pass for the naval militia on account of one weak eye, went before the board again and was accepted. John Doan also passed the examination and signed the roll. Chas Mapes made another attempt but had not succeeded in bringing up his weight to the necessary standard. This makes sixteen Marysville boys who have entered the naval militia, two of whom were members before the war broke out, and were called as reserves. Three others joined the navy proper, and the other eleven have enlisted in the naval militia for the period of the war.
The entire number of volunteers for all branches of the service from Marysville now reaches 28, provided we have succeed in securing the names of all. This is more than one-third of the number registered in the two Marysville precincts on June 5th, and if we are correctly informed that each state and district will have the list of volunteers deducted from their first draft quota, this would mean that Marysville will miss the first draft entirely. The draft will be conducted in regular order, but those who may be chosen would be held in reserve for a later call.

The naval training station at the University of Washington will be ready for occupancy July 25th. Five divisions of the naval militia of Washington and three divisions from Oregon will be assembled there by August 1st for a period of several months' intensive training prior to being taken aboard Uncle Sam's warships.
Recruits for these divisions will be received up to the time of going into camp. Members of the Naval Militia are not subject to draft. After completing the period of training they will enter the regular navy service, fill the same positions and perform the same duties as officers and men of the regular navy. At the end of the war they will be returned home and allowed to resume their civilian occupations.
Naval officers consider the site at the University of Washington ideal for training purposes. The location is on Lake Washington which is now accessible from the sea for vessels of all kinds. The lake gives opportunity for all kinds of boat drill, swimming, exercises, hydroplane instructions, etc.
The location is sightly, well-drained, provided with pure water, rail, street car and water transportation, complete electric light system, etc.
Inquiries by mail or personally will be answered by Commander Miller Freeman, Naval Militia Headquarters Building, Seattle.

For purposes of the draft Snohomish county has been divided into three districts with exemption boards sitting in Everett, Snohomish and Arlington. Included in the Arlington district is all of the county north of the south line of Marysville from the west side of the county east to the county line, thus including Tulalip, Marysville, Sunnyside, Getchell, Granite Falls and all north.
The members of the exemption board for District No. 2 are A. W. Moll, A. M. Wendell and Dr. E. W. Adams, all of Arlington.
The number attached to each name is of importance, as the actual draft will be made by number. Certain numbers will be drawn and the men in each district throughout the United States designated by that number will be drawn, and this process is expected to be completed within a few days. After the draft is thus made the matter of exemptions will be taken up by the various boards
Those subject to draft should preserve this list for reference in case of the present and possible future drafts.
Those of draft age will be responsible for ascertaining whether or not they are drawn. The war department asks that in the next few weeks they be on alert, following the newspaper announcements of the draft requirements, and when in doubt ask their local exemption boards.
The provost marshal general is preparing a boiled down announcement of draft regulations, so that there can be no mistaking the duty of the registrants.
Watch for the drawing in Washington. Then find out whether you were drawn and the order in which you must appear. After that learn when you must appear for physical examination, will others, and as every man is responsible for knowing the requirements it behooves the youth of America to keep close tab on the newspapers from now on.
We give herewith the numbers and names of all those, so far as we could learn of those living in or near Marysville.

Co. M Dance a Success
The dance given by Company M at the opera house Saturday evening was a great success, both socially and financially. About eighty-five gentlemens tickets were sold, and more that a hundred paid for gallery seats. The affair was managed from the beginning by Private Boren, who worked like a nailer to assure its success, and was agreeably surprised to find he had cleared upwards of $45.00.


The people of Marysville were this week treated to a first-hand statement of conditions as they are today in Belgium and northeastern France.
A Canadian soldier with only one leg and two crutches was passing through Marysville on his way to Vancouver, B. C. and after resting at the Currie hotel overnight was about to move on Sunday morning when some of our business men, led by Mr. S. F. Moulton, of the Fair store, conceived the idea of getting him to stay and talk to the people at a public meeting on his experiences in France and what he knew of the destruction wrought by the invading armies.
Arrangements were accordingly made for the use of the Marysville theatre for Tuesday evening, and a crowded house greeted the soldier, who lost his leg in the battle of Zelubek, near Ypres, on June 2nd, 1916.
The man was an American citizen, named R. Reynolds, a resident of Gloucester, Mass., engaged in the U. S. Coast Survey work when, like thousands of other red-blooded Americans, he decided to help the Allies in their efforts to lick Germany, and enlisted in the 48th Battalion, Victoria Vol. Inf., in February, 1915, and after a few month's training in Canada, was sent to the front in France and took his place in the trenches.
Private Reynolds opened his remarks by answering the oft-repeated query of some misinformed or thoughtless Americans as to why America should send an army to France. Why not wait till they attempt to invade our own country, then every American would rise up and repel the invaders. Private Reynolds told of the firing of homes, "the leveling of cities, "the killing of innocent men, the defilement of women and girls, crippling of little children by cutting off their hands and feet, "and asked if we wanted such a foe to land on our own shores and begin their hellish work before going to war with them. He advocated meeting them with every force at our command on the battlefields of France so they may never have a chance to overcome England, get possession of the English fleet and land on our shores. His arguments were incontrovertible.
His experiences were such as we read about, but coming from an eyewitness were brought closer home to all who heard him. The talk given was Private Reynolds' first attempt of this kind, and it was very well done and received generous applause. A liberal collection was taken up to provide money to pay for the pictures which were given to the audience free, and to cover the hotel bill of the speaker and his transportation to Vancouver or Victoria. This was all he would accept, his desire being to do what he could to get the people of this country roused to a full realization of what the war means.

The Coast Artillery Corps was called together Wednesday. This puts into service from Marysville Harold Myers, Walter Morrison, Joseph Tatham and Bert Barraman. They will be sent to Ft. Worden, Ft. Casey or elsewhere on the coast.

Henry P. Cochrane, formerly of Marysville and a graduate of the M. H. S. Class of 1916, is entitled to a place in the honor roll having enlisted some weeks ago in the U. S. Cavalry and is now on duty in a training camp.

On July 18th Holace Metcalf was made Sergeant Bugler, or Chief Trumpeter of the 11th Cavalry. This regiment has recently returned from boarder duty and is temporarily stationed at its home post, at Fort Oglethorpe Georgia.

Vernon Murphy is again on the firing line in France, and writes some interesting letters to the home folks. We quote a few lines from a letter to his father written July 4th and received early this week.
"I will try and send a package to you in a few days of a few souvenirs picked up on the battlefield, and also a cartridge that came from near Palestine in the holy land. It is the kind the Turks use. I will send it registered to you and also if I get any more chances will send a helmet. I had one but it was lost in the retreat, but I will try and send different things and photos of the damage done through shell fire. You cannot imagine what one of the shells look like, breaking and singing all around you. It is not so pleasant but it sure keeps one thinking and using your head.
" I am going out again this week and I sure do wish it was going towards Canada, but I can stick it as well as the rest and I am going into the same work as the ambulance corps so I will be o.k., and safe, for I will not get sent to the trenches again.
"I am going along fine and I suppose I will have to anyway, but I am promised my stripes, so I soon will have a promotion for as soon as I take up the work I get them and I will be at it by the end of the week.
" I am glad to see that you have and also the number of other people home that have contributed to the Red Cross, for it ever there was an organization that should be helped they are, for little can a person imagine what they have done for the boys and how they are helping to do their bit.



I got a note the other day
At break of early morn,
From just the vilest thing on earth,
Or ever that was born.

You need not ask for help on high,
Your nerve is passing strange;
For Belgiums victims cry to me,
For pity and revenge,

Your crimes are legion in the book,
And oh, that is not all,
If you but had the sense to see
The writing on the wall.

Columbia is in the fray,
Your race is nearly run,
the clouds are silver in the sky,
The fight has just begun.

I have no use for such as you.
The truth I'll plainly tell,
I have a nice warn trench for you.
Way down in the deepest -----
