DEPARTMENT OF MILITARY CENSUS AND ENROLL-
MENT.



INTRODUCTION



On April 25, 1917, George S. Wallace, Major Judge Advocate General, O. R. C.,
of Huntington, was appointed by Governor John J. Cornwell as head of the
newly formed Department of Military Census and Enrollment, to take charge
of the execution of the selective service act for the State of West Virginia. It
was then defmitely known that this act would become a law and preliminary
preparations were immediately gotten under way, so that on May 19, 1917, the
day the selective service act became a law, the State was in readiness. Under
the plans adopted, the registrars of the last general election were appointed
wherever possible to serve in connection with the registration of all men of military
age and .3,630 registrars were used in this manner, two to every precinct in the
State, with a few exceptions, where local conditions demanded more than two.
Of these 3,423 gave their service voluntarily. The registration was decentralized
under the direct supervision of registration boards, consisting of the sheriff, the
county clerk and health officer and two citizen members in the counties and the
mayor and five citizen members in cities of over thirty thousand. The registrars
were appointed, sworn, furnished with supplies and ready for registration by the
evening of May 26th.

The total registration of the state in the Class of June .5, 1917, including late
registrants, was 126,505. On June 26th, the registration l)oards completed their
work and turned over their registration cards and other records to the newly
appointed Draft Boards.

On September 26, 1917, Major George S. Wallace was succeeded by Captain
Breckinridge Jones as Chief of the Department of Military Census and Enroll-
ment. Captain Jones was in charge of the administration of the draft until June 7,
1918, when he was succeeded by Captain Fleming N. Alderson, of Richwood,
W. Va., as Chief of the Department.

The registration of June 5, 1918, is known as the second registration. As the
selective service system had been in operation nearly a year, the work of the
registration was completed with dispatch. The registration was accomplished
by means of registrars at the customary polling places under the direction of the
Local Board having jurisdiction of the area wherein the person was registered.

On August 13, 1918, President Wilson issued a proclamation calling upon all
male persons who had since the 5th day of June, 1918, attained their twenty-
first birthday to register August 21, 1918. This registration was accomplished
in a manner similar to the registration of June 5th. Those who registered August
24, 1918, were considered late registrants of June 5, 1918, and for that reason
they were considered registrants of the second registration.

The total registration of the State in the second registration, including late
registrants, was 14,179.



JOR(i^NliATIOX SeLECTI\E SERVICE ACT



By this time all the men of the first registration qualified for general miliary
service had cither been called or sent to camp, and the boys of the second registra-
tion were quickly forwarded to meet the urgent demands upon the State.

On August 31, 1918, President Wilson, by proclamation, appointed September
12, 1918, as a day of registaation for all male persons in the United States
between the ages of 18 and 46, who had not pre\-iously registered or were other-
wise exempt.

These were, perhaps, the most tning days to local and district boards and
others connected ^^•ith the draft, of any period during the war. The demand
for men at the front created a scarcity of industrial and agricultural workers,
and the proper classification of registrants was a problem requiring all the energy
and wisdom at the disposal of the highly competent men who were members
of the local and district boards. The successful result of the manner in which
this problem was solved, is something of which every West Virginian should feel
proud.

The registration of September 12, 1918, following close upon the exhausting
labor of the summer, rendered almost superhuman efforts necessarj^ to meet the
occasion. All the local, district, medical and legal advisory boards, and others
connected with the draft, responded and the work connected ^^ith the largest
registration during the war was begun, as the matter of registration is merely a
beginning.

The total' registration of the State in the Class of September 12, 1918, was
182,699.
