2A History of Dickey County, North Dakota, pp. 321-329, Dickey County ND GenWeb,
On October 10th, 1918, the local board received directions for inducting 81 men into service from October 21st to 26th. These men were to go to Ft. Winfield Scott, California and this draft would practically exhaust Dickey County's first class, as with all the calls that had been met there were only 91 men left in Class 1. This list was made up and the men ordered to report on Sunday, October 20th, but a telegram from the Adjutant General under date of October 16th suspended this call, with the understanding that they should go at a later date. The date for the departure of these men was set for November 11th, and the eighty-one were: ... Ruggles H. Morgan ...
On this same call nine men were to be sent to Camp Dodge, so twenty-two more were called to make up the list of alternates for the large party and meet the call for Camp Dodge: ...
This exhausted the list of Class 1 and took several of the new registrants who had become twenty-one after the first registration of the year before. But this entire draft party was doomed to disappointment, and while they were bitterly vexed with the Kaiser for depriving them of the opportunity of joining their fellows at the front, the fighting was concerned. The boys were all ready to go and many of them at the depot when the agent received orders to issue no transportation, so they had to return to civilian pursuits without their taste of service."
