Here are the index entries:

World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 about Patsy Butchelle
Name: Patsy Butchelle
County: Lawrence
State: Pennsylvania
Birthplace: Pennsylvania;United States of America
Birth Date: 13 Jan 1894
Race: Caucasian (White)
FHL Roll Number: 1893481

World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 about Domenic Tony Butchelle
Name: Domenic Tony Butchelle
County: Lawrence
State: Pennsylvania
Birth Date: 5 Jan 1900
Race: White
FHL Roll Number: 1893481
DraftBoard: 1

However, the films themselves seem to be screwed up; when attempting to load these records, I am actually taken to those beginning with "F" and, having checked all of the films for this county ("A" film, "B" film, etc), the actual "B" records are nowhere to be found. I have seen this happen before...

The good news is that you can request much better copies than would be available from Ancestry directly from the National Archives for just $5.00 each. I did this when my grandfathers' cards as found on Ancestry were both nearly illegible; the copies I got from the National Archives were several orders of magnitude clearer.
