DRAFT REGISTRATION JUNE 5
NON-RESIDENTS MUST REPORT AT CAMBRIDGE CITY HALL BEFORE THEN.
According to the rulings laid down by President Wilson in his draft proclamation of May 18, all members of the University between the ages of 21 and 30, inclusive, who live in Cambridge must register on June 5 at places to be designated later. Those who live outside of Cambridge should apply as soon as possible to the city clerk at the City Hall in Central Square for instructions as to how they may be registered by agent or by mail. President Wilson's statement in regard to this point was as follows:
"Those who expect to be absent on the day named from the counties in which they have their permanent homes may register by mail, but their mailed registration cards must reach the places in which they have their permanent homes by the day named herein.
"In case such persons as through sickness or absence may be unable to present themselves personally for registration shall be sojourning in cities of over 30,000 population, they shall apply to the city clerk of the city wherein they may be sojourning rather than to the clerk of the country. The clerks of counties and of cities of over 30,000 population in which numerous applications from the sick and non-residents are expected are authorized to establish such sub-agencies and to employ and deputize such clerical forces as may be necessary to accommodate these applications."
Although the feeling of obligation should alone be sufficient to make every man attend to his registration, failure to do so will be a penal offense, punishable by fine or imprisonment. It is imperative that there be no delays through carelessness.
