Battery B, the new field Artillery unit
being organized in the Oregon National
Guard for servie In France, An effort
will be made to speed up the recruiting
still faster, however, so that the new
battery may have the nucleus of a fine
outfit before the draft goes into etfect.
This is expected to be within the
next few days, so there is every incen
tive to hurry for the man who feels a
patriotic call to join the colors and
prefers to be able to select his own
military outfit, instead of being ar
bitrarily drafted into one branch of
the service or another.
Six more recruits presented them
selves yesterday to Lieutenant Charles

The National Guard recruiting station
is at 106 Fourth street.
Recruits are also wanted to fill the

GASTON IN NEED OF RAIN
Hay All in and Grains Show Lack
GASTON, Or., July 10. (Special.)
A good soaking- rain of several days"
duration is badly needed in this part
of the valley. Most farmers have their
clover hay in the barn, and their vetch
not yet cut. Winter wheat and other
grains are heading: out and a good rain
would help it to fill. Spring wheat is
very short and needs rain badly. Pas
turage is also beginning to dry up, ana
corn, potatoes, root crops and all gar
den stuff are suffering for want or
moisture. Many dairymen are waiting
for rain so as to put out their kale.
All thinpc considered, a rain at this
time would be most timely. The 300
acres of flax on the Wapato Lake tract
is all in and would be better for rain.
