Correct another look at the manifest indicates he was 32.
All males of age were required to register for the draft, but I find no indication that he served in WW I.
His occupation on the manifest is... FarmerWater Engineer?Well his hometown, Vrtobja, is located on a river
The surname still exists in that town, as found in the Slovenian online phone book
Pod means under or below
