ORGANIZATION OF PLATOON
OF INFANTRY IS UP
Uniforms. Guns and Ammunition Would
Be Furnished by Government and
Armory Bent Paid.
The organization here of a platoon of
an infantry company in the National
Guard is quite likely.
Major J. Francis Drake, of the adju
tant general's office, an.l Major R. A.
Babb, o f Eugene, met with a few of
those interested Wednesday afternoon
and outlined the requirements for the
organization of such a platoon. Major
Metcalf, of this eity, has called a meet
ing of the home guard members for to
night at the commercial club, at which
time the organization will be taken up.
A minimum o f 50 men is necessary
and Major Drake gave assurance that
10 days after the men were accepted
they would have uniforms and would
shortly thereafter have their guns and
ammunition. Much an organization would
receive «300 a year for local support
and the members and officers would re
ceive a quarter of the pay of the regu
lar army, whic^ for the privates would
be about a dollar for each meeting.
Some here had hoped to organize an
engineers company, but Major Drake
said that the adjutant general had no
authority for such an organization at
the present time, but that it might be
possible for an infantry platoon, if one
was organized here, to transfer to the
engineers later on.
Bade Probably Next Reading Clerk.
Elbert Bede, editor of The Sentinel, is
quite certain of being the reading clerk
of the house of the next Oregon assem

more than a majority of the votes and
has no opposition as yet.

KARL MILLS, BART AND
CAR ALL TAKE BATH
Karl Mills likes a joke, and he is pe
culiar about his jokes in that he enjoys
them almost as well if they are on him
as he does when they are on someone
else, and if you want to hear a real
good one, ask him the full details of
how he tried to wash his ear in the
Coast fork a few days ago.
He and C. A. Bartell were returning
from a trip down the canyon and the
car had taken on various copious quan
tities o f the famous canyon mud, which
sticks worse than your w i f e ’s poor re
" W h y not ford the r i v e r ì ” suggested

mado the discovery that water and gas
oline won't mix.
After the two o c c u p a n t s o f the
waterlogged car had talked it over for
some time, Charles Mntthews offered his
services in towing the stranded car out.
Someone had to get out in the water to
hitch the cable.
“ l^ct me get o u t," said Bart.
“ No, never mind,’ ’ said Karl.
“ Oh, let me,” said Bart.
“ No, never mind,” said Karl.
" O h , let me,’ ’ said Bart.
“ No, never mind,” said Karl.
“ Oh, let me.”
VNo, never mind.”
“ Well, if you insist, go ahead,” said
Bart, who had never hnd the least idea
of exposing his unclad nether extrem
ities to the profane public gaie and the
frigid waters of the Const fork.
There are other details to the story,
but they should be left for Karl to tell.
