This contingent, from city draft board No. 2, was preceded yesterday morning by a group of 11 men taken from all three of the county's boards. Another group of 15 men from the city's No. 1 board will leave early tomorrow, while each board has issued a call for men to be sent June 29. By the end of the month approximately 167 men will have been sent from the county, with all the boards having had several calls-the No 1 board will have had six."
