EATON MAKES STATEMENT
(Concluded from page 1.)
council in Wyoming, N. Y., where I
have spent the past two summers.
Before consenting to go as their dele
gate, I stated publicly (and it is a mat
ter of record) that I was willing to
go only on the condition that I should
be free to act, and that it must be
understood by all that I would go as
a loyal supporter of the government.
This statement not only met with the
approval of those who had asked me
to go, none of whom were pro-German,
but as soon as my statement had been
made the signatures on my petition
welre doubled in number, including
the names of a large number of people
who were in no sense pacifists and
some who were active militarists. *
* * * * At no time did I
represent myself from Oregon, but
on the contrary whenever Oregon was
mentioned I explained the whole sit

"As to the newspaper account to
which my name was attached with the
title ‘Representative from Lane Coun

which the resolutions cite as the ba
sis for the request to dismiss me from
the legislature and the State Univer
sity, that of course was a mistake,
which I very much regret. But I did
not make the mistake. The addition
was made some place in the Journal
office at Portland. And I wish to say
that I feel sure that it was made with

Loyal to Government
“I regret that what I have done

SOCCER G (i (t NEEDED
Father Moran May Fill Shoes Vacated
by Colin Dyment
Aspirants for the ’varsity soccer
squad will have a week or so to wait
before the first call for players is
issued. No man has been found as yet
to take Coach Colin V. Dyment’s
place, although two or three have
been mentioned as possibilities. Fa
ther J. Moran, who assisted Coach Dy
ment during the past three seasons,
may be induced to take over the reins.
Jimmy Sheehy, ex-captain and a star
forward on last season’s team, may
do some of the coaching alto.
Prospects for a winning team are
not very bright, as but few of the old
men are on hand so far. The alter
native of selecting soccer in place of
gymnasium work will probably make
for a good-sized squad however.
