Registered students of the Univ-

havo been issued by the legal advisory

' Must Return Questionnaires
All registrants under the selective
draft law, except those now in the na-
tional army by draft, are required to
fill out an elaborate questionnaire.
Questionnaries will be mailed by local
boards to every registrant beginning
Dec. 15, and each registrant is re-
quired to return his questionnaire
within seven days from the date of
i mailing. Five per cent will be mail-
ed each day for 20 days following the
order of the serial number of regis-
trant, As most of the questionnaires
will be mailed during vacation, it is
important that every student who is
registered shall at once notify his
local selective servide board of his
address for every day from Dec. 15.
Failure to receive the notice does
not excuse from filling out the ques-
tionnaire. Students living at a dis-
tance should ask at once for the nec-
essary extension of time to return the
questionnaire. They may also, if they
wish, at the time the questionnaire is
sent in , make application for transfer
of physical examination or transfer of
classification. This, of course, is for
those who will not be at home to
take the examination there.

signated legal advisers for all students
of the University who are registered.

bers of the legal advisory board will

through the questionnaire before prey 1
senting themselves before the board,9
so as to get the' necessary facts to
answer all questions. Members of .the
advisory board will be ready to assist
as needed in filling out the question-
naires, and will administer the neces-
sary oaths for the affidavits without
any charge for either service.
