NATIVE OF CAPE VINCENT DIES SAT- URDAY IN CITY Albany, Tan. 23—All male citizens are still required to register with Selective Service as soon as they reach their 18th birthday, Brigadier General A T Brown, State Director of Se- lective Service, declared today. Some young men, it is be- lieved, are simply forgetting to register. Others have opinion they are no longer required to register. This belief has been encouraged by the postpone- ment of inductions for several weeks. Also required to register are male aliens, residing in this country, who are between the ages of 18 and 65. Certain persons are exempt from regis- tration as long as they are in a certain status such as mem- bers o{ the armed iorces and consular and diplomatic repre- sentatives of other countries. \The act of registration is veiy' simple,\ Gen. Brown ex- plained. \The registrant need not even register at the office ot the Local Board that will have jurisdiction over him. He can register at any Local Board office and bis registration card will be forwarded to his board. If he lives at ? considerable distance from any Local Boaru, it is suggested that the regis- trant \contact the beard and in- quire if there is a registrar lo- cated near his home or place of business.\ Registration will also _ permit the Local Board to issue a classification card to the. regis- trant. The carrying of this card is required by law and in- ability to produce the card may prove embarrassing. \Registration is the act of a free citizen,\ the Director em- phasised. \It indicates his obedience to the laws of our country. The registration lists include those on whom. Am- erica can count in case of need. Possibly, a registrant may never have the privilege of defending his country with arms but his registration indicates his will; ingriess to serve if called upon.'' S.S. KINGSTON MAY BE BUILT IN SPRING Kingston, Ont., Tan. 23—The construction of the S.S. Kings- ton for. the Canada Steamship Lines may begin here this spring, if long-ordered steel be- comes available, it has been an- nounced by T G Bishop, man-' ager of the Canadian Shipbuild- ing and Engineering company. It had originally been planned to start construction last fall. Now it is hoped tha the keel may be laid early this spring, though steel shipments are still problematical. Designs have gained final ap- proval for the ship, which it is hoped will become the flagship of the C.S.L. If begun this year, it would be ready for its maiden voyage in 1948. The Kingston will be built along the lines of the S.S. Tadousac but will offer a great- er number of luxury cabins. Overall length will be 368 feet, with an extreme breadth of 68 feet. The ship will displace nearly 4,500 tons and, with a passenger capacity-of about 500, will cruise at 21 miles per hour. Each stateroom will be equip- ped with showers and toilets. Many deluxe suites will include baths. The horsepower of the oil-burning, steam driven ship will be 7,500.
