Is Preparing Statement.
By reason of the fact that he conduct
ed some of the University's extension
classes in Portland, Professor DeFell is
well known here. He is at present stay
ing at the University club. He declared
last night that he intends tc remain in
this city, but declined to talk of the in
vestigation further than to say that a
statement he is preparing and will make
• public on the return from the cast of
President Campbell, of the University,
will explain bis resignation.
“About two weeks ago, on complaint
from Eugene, my office began an inves
tigation of the cnarge that Professor De
Fell is a slacker,” said United States At
torney Reames last night, “and his case
is still under investigation. Yesterday
the sheriff of Lane county telephoned me
that certain residents of Eugene were
demanding the arrest of DeFell, who ap
parently, was about to leave the city;
that he had not registered and that there
was a dispute as to his correct age.
Cannot Leave City.
“I immediately communicated with
Professor DeFell, who told me he want
ed to leave that city. I told him if he
undertook to leave the state until the
slacker charge had been fully investigat
ed and disposed of, he would be arrested.
Accordingly, he accepted my advice and
came to the city, reporting at my office.
He was permitted to have his liberty on
condition that he remain in the city.
“From the investigation my office has
made DeFell evidently was born in Bus
Work on Battalion Standard
to Be Done Only by ‘U’ Women
Only University women will embroider
the battalion flag designed by Professor
A. H. Schroff, professor of fine arts,
for Colonel John Leader’s company. The
work, which will be in applique and em
broidery, will begin on Tuesday, afte#
the return of Boswell Dosch from Port
and, where he is selecting materials for
Although the plan of having every
girl in the University take at least one
stitch in the flag has been abandoned,
it is the hope of Colonel Leader that
many women will be represented in the
work. For this reason Helene Delano,
president of woman’s league, has ap
pointed a committee who will secure
the services of the girls for the needle
work. The members are Gladys Wil
kins, chairman, Gladys Conklin, Roberta
Scheubel, Elsie Fitzmaurice, Janet
Fraser and Katherine Twomey.
Oregon colors will predominate, in the
standard, which will be of yellow silk,
with the University seal in the center
and a conventional border of Oregon
grape. When completed, with a gold
fringe three inches in depth, the flag
will be two feet by four feet.
Mrs. Schroff, wife of Professor
Schroff, is carving an eagle, which will
be gilded and placed at the top of the
“In working out the color scheme,”
said Professor Schroff, “I have chosen
a design which will make the flag a
distinctive one when it is flying on our
campus. The work must be done well,
however, and special care must be taken
in transferring the design to the silk.
I think the fact that so many girls will
help to do the embroidery will add a
great deal of character to the color
scheme, as no two people do the work
in exactly the same way.”
sia, and it is due largely to a difference
between the Russian and the United
States calendars that the dispute as to
his correct age has arisen. The point in
controversy is whether he was 31 yeavs
of age on the day of military registration,
June 5 last.
Within Draft Limits
‘‘The records of an Elks’ lodge in Mis
souri disclose that if he gave his age cor
rectly at that time he was not 31 years
of age on registration day and therefore
is subject to the draft. On the other
hand, 1 have found, upon checking the
record of his age at two schools he at
tended, that, if he then told the truth,
he was more than 31 years of age on
June 5, and consequently not subject to
“The case is a most complicated one,
and, in view of the apparent discrepan
cies as to DePell’s true age, I have seri
ous doubts that the positive truth can
ever be ascertained. It will be three or
four days before it will be possible for
my office to conclude the investigation.’’

In buying an automobile the public has confined its
choice to well known makes which have stood the test oi
wear and service. But in the purchase of a wrist watch the
price seems to come into the mind of the average purchaser
regardless of the value and reliability.
This is the reason so many wrist watches prove worth
less to military men at the front and the people at home;
In this respect a watch cannot be compared to a piece ot
machinery. A cheap automobile can run fast or slow and
still serve its owner. But a watch, even if it wiggles, might
just as well stop if it does not give the correct time.
The movement must be standard and it must be sub
stantially protected by a case and crystal which can be de
pended upon. We have just such watches in stock and at
right prices. *
