Altamont Enterprise for June 14, 2018


German alien women of the Capital district will be required to register in the week of June 17, set by President Wilson in a proclamation for the registration of all German alien women in the United States. In each of the municipalities of the state, which have a population of at least 5,000, the registration will be conducted by the police and in all other communities by postmasters.

George S. Vroman, postmaster, will have charge of the registration in Altamont.

Each registrant will be required to provide four photographs of herself and sign her name across the face of each. Three of them will be retained by the authorities and the fourth, mounted on a card, which will also bear the left thumb print of the woman, will be given to the registrant. This she must have in her possession at all times, following its issuance within two weeks after she has registered.

After she has registered a woman may not leave the city or district in which she is living without the permission of the deputy marshal or the chief registrar.

Because a woman takes the citizenship of her husband, an American woman who has married a German must register as an alien. A German woman who married an American before war was declared need not register.

Two important steps have been taken toward perfecting the task of putting the nation on a war basis.

Soon after Provost Marshal General Crowder had promulgated a drastic amendment to the selective service regulations requiring every man of draft age to work or fight, Secretary Beaker appeared before the House military committee and asked that President Wilson be authorized to call to the colors all men of draft who can be equipped and trained.

General Crowder’s new regulation is far reaching in scope and touches not only habitual idlers, but also requires that draft registrants now in occupations held to be non useful seek new jobs or take their places in the army. Clerks in stores, waiters, bartenders, employees in place of amusement, passenger elevator men and other employees around hotels, clubs and business buildings, as well as gamblers, fortune tellers and race track and bucketshop attendants all fall among those classed as non usefully engaged.
