WE’D LIKE TO HAVE YOU SEE THEM — WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THE
FINE QUALITY OF OUR SHOES.

The prices are reasonable — the same ideas and leathers cost more in other lines.

nance class left yesterday on the 1:50
train for Benicia, California, wheTe they

ment pay to privates in the army. The
men left yesterday and the money will be,

MILHII WOULD GET

Enlistment for Two Years Only

Contrary to general opinion, the se

two years, which means that at any

The men must swear to support the
consitution of the state of Oregon, and
also the constitution of the United States
which in his belief, is no more than any
man in the University is willing to do.
The troops could not be taken outside
of the state, nor would they be liable to
service in the national army until mem

through the regular channels which are
now in force for all men between the
ages of 21 and 31.

GOOD, SAYS PRESCOTT
Speech to Pro-Germans Remarkable;
Delegates Chosen for State Con
test at Salem.
The address of Abe E. Rosenborg,
*21, who will represent the University
at the tenth annual oratorical contest,
held at Salem, Friday March 8, is very
remarkable, according to Professor Rob
ert W. Prescott, instructor in public

in the United States. The title is,
“Your Name—Honored Yesterday—To
day Loathed—What Shall It Be To
Mr. Rosenberg states that the old
Germany was honored for her great
finalities of character—the very quali
ties for which the allies are now fight
ing. He aim* to show that the old Ger
many has been betrayed by the mad
despots who have reversed the old Ger
many and made its name a word of hiss
ing and scorn. The greatest service the
people of Germany, who are living in ihis
country, can do for their fatherland Is
to join with their motherland, America,
and help her Have Germany from the
men who are ruining her. The people in
Germany are helpless under the spell
of these men, and it is up to the ones
who are her<*. and still sane and free,
to raise the name to the old place that
it once held.
Delegates who will represent the Uni
versity are. from the senior class. Wait
er Meyers and Harold Cake; from the
junior class, Dwight Wilson and Mane
Iiadura; from the sophomore class.
Jesse Garner and Merritt Whitten; from
the freshman class, .Sam Lehman and
