Ninety-One Take Appeals From the Exemption Boards

Sixty-Eight From the County Board and Twenty-three from City – Discuss Method of Calling First Increment.

Sixty-eight appeals have been filed with the exemption board for the Eastern district of South Carolina from decisions of the exemption board for Richland county. Monay is the last day in which appeals can be filed from the county. Only 23 appeals have been filed up to this time from the city of Columbia but it will be several days yet before the time limit expires because the city board has not yet finished the examination of drafted men and has not itself passed on all claims for exemption.

Members of the city and county boards are discussing the best method of procedure in the selection of the first increment which will be mobilized on September 5. It seems that there are no instructions for the exemption boards on this point and they are to be allowed to choose the men who are to go first as they see fit.

First Call September 5.

The county board must furnish 62 men, or 30 per cent of its quota, on September 5. The city board must furnish 57 men on the same day. The total quote for the county is 205 and for the city 190.

It had been thought by many that the boards would call the men into service in the order in which they were drafted but it seems that it is optional with them as to whether they follow this method of procedure. There was some talk yesterday to the effect that the members of the county board might call farmers last in order that they might finish the harvesting of their crops.
