Laid on the Table of the House of Representatives by Leave.


CLASSIFICATION OF INDUSTRIES, PROFESSIONS, AND OCCUPATIONS, AS APPROVED BY GOVERNMENT. (A.) Most Essential.— The industries and occupations included under this heading are deemed of primary importance, but this classification must not be read as including each and every man employed therein. It may be that many of those now employed can be replaced, but no person should be removed whose removal would imperil the successful maintenance of the industry or occupation. (B.) Essential. —The industries and occupations included under this heading are regarded as essential, and second only in importance to those in Class A. In this classification it may be found that 'a very much larger percentage of men can be released for military service than may be possible in Class A, but no person should be removed whose removal would imperil the successful maintenance of the industry or occupation. (C.) Partially Essential. —The industries and occupations included under this heading are deemed to be of secondary importance to those in Class B. In this classification it may be found that a much smaller percentage of men need be excluded from military service than in Class B; but there will be some whose removal would imperil the successful maintenance of the industry or occupation, and in proved cases such men should be exempt. (D.) Non-essential. —The industries and occupations included under this heading are regarded as being non-esseatial. By this classification it is not intended to convey that any industry set out must necessarily be sacrificed if it be found that some one or more men are essential to its existence, as in such cases it may be desirable to exempt such men for the purpose of enabling the industry to be continued, and to prevent a large number of other persons from being prematurely thrown out of employment.
