This is the happy report eman

But when the camel couple was

Portland Cops in Keystone Comedy
PORTLAND, Jan. 28—(AP)—Two young men
were jailed today after a slapstick chase involv
ing a lost cab, a lost police car, and a cabbie who
couldn’t find his fares.
It all sounded, said tired police, like a scene from
a film comedy of the twenties.
Cabbie Harry Schaeffer got a call early this
morning to an east side apartment house. When he
arrived, somebody yelled, “We’ll be right out-turn
on the meter.”
The meter ticked along to $2, and nobody came
out Schaeffer called police to find his fares.
As the policemen accompanied Schaeffer into the
apartment house, somebody dro$e off in the cab. A
second later somebody drove off in the police car.
While more police were summoned, one of the of
ficers arrested a suspicious by stander.
spotted his cab, four blocks away.
The arrested bystander, the police, and Schaeffer
rushed down and got it. Then they came back and
arrested another man, who was with a young girl.
The girl wandered away. Police started after her,
and her companion made a dash to escape. The of
ficers rushed back and recaptured him.
The two men—who, witnesses said, answered the
description of the persons who had driven off in the
cab and the police car—were finally taken to jail.
The police car was found later, on the west side of
Veterans who have old certifi
cates of eligibility for G. I. Bill
training are advised to exchange
them immediately for a new-type
certificate, if they are planning io
enter school or job-training for the
first time after January 1.
Mr. Donald C. Schworer, Veter
ans Administration representative
at the University of Oregon, ex
plained today that the out-dated
certificates are all those issued be
fore last September 1. Thousands
of these which have never been,
used are in the hands of Oregon
Certificates may be exchanged
in person or by mail. The exchange
is necessary, Mr. Schworer said,
because of a new registration meth
od which the VA will employ af
ter January 1.
The new form enables the agen
cy to verify an ex-GI's educational
entitlement before he starts train
ing, thus allowing prompter service
on tuition and subsistence pay
ments after his training is begun.
Now’s the time for all veterans’
wives to toss away that gingham
apron and enter the contest for
Dads' Day hostess. This the only
chance for wives and mothers to
get in the race with the campus
queens and display their charms
and talents to the campus.

turned into the special box in the
