THE MORNING OREGOXIATT, THIJIISDAT, JULY 12, 1917.
TO IGNORE RUMORS
Draft Numbers Will Be Given
. Out as Soon as They Are Re
, ceived From Washington.
FEW MAY BE CALLED
Etate Sow Has Furnished One Per
Cent of Number Needed and May
Not Be Called On for More
According to Surmises.
Another false rumor, utterly un
founded on fact, was circulated In Port
land yesterday, to the effect that the
draft numbers had been received here
The drawing to determine the num
bers of the first men to be called has
not even been held yet in Washington.
However, the rumor that the draft
numbers had arrived here gained great
circulation and resulted in hundreds of
telephone calls from eager Inquirers.
It was emphasized last night by
George A. White, Adjutant-General of
the Oregon National Guard, who Is In
charge under Governor Wlthycombe of
the draft machinery In Oregon, that of
ficial announcement will be made of the
numbers after the drawing has been
Letters Will Notify Drafted.
Moreover, local boards will send let
ters to the men selected. Instructing
them to appear before the board for
physical examination on a date set by
the board, which must be within seven
So far no Information has been re
ceived here to Indicate what day the
drawing will be made at Washington,
though it is understood It will come
very soon now. General White has a
force of clerks ready to go through
the more than 63,000 registration cards
from every county in the state on file
In his office the moment the numbers
are received over the wire.
The names of the men called will
be very quickly determined, and will
be announced immediately. Men who
are subject to the draft, and their rel-
a-tivel and friends, should pay no at
tention to any but official announce
Government May Owe State.
The War Department also has given
out no information to indicate the size
of the quota that will be assigned to
Oregon, although the announcement
has been made that 675,000 men will
be drafted on the first calL
Based on relative population. Ore
gon's quota, however, would be not
far from 1 per cent of the total, per-
haps a little less than that. One per
cent of 675,000 would be 6750 men.
But at the rate Oregon's patriotic
young men have ben voluntarily en
listing in the regular Army and the
Jsatlonal Guard It begins to look, as
If the Federal Government might act
ually owe the state men In the first
draft quota instead of being required
to furnish them.
General White received an official
statement from the War Department
yesterday, showing that Oregon is
credited with 1974 men enlisted in the
Regular Army between April 2 and
4tS3 Are In Guard.
And at the same time, the total num
ber of Oregon National Guardsmen, In
cluding the Third Oregon, enlisted in
the state up to June 30, is 4bS3.
The total number of both regulars
and National Guardsmen credited to
the state is. therefore, 6657. If Oregon
Is required to furnish only 1 per cent
of 675,000 needed In the first draft, or
6750, it will be seen that It is right
now only 93 men short of a full quota.
Incidentally, however, the "if In the
oase Is a great big one. The War De
partment may require that Oregon fur
nish more than 1 per cent.
The following table shows the num
ber of men credited to each county up
to June 30 In both Regular Army and
National Guard enlistments:

headquarters, 106 Fifth street, to ob
tain recruits for the Third Oregon In
fantry, Battery B, the new field artil
lery organization, engineer companies
and other branches of the service.
Adjutant-General White Is anxious to
have all Oregon guard troops, includ
ing the Third Oregon, recruited up to
full strength before the Government
calls out the men who are drafted It
would be a big feather for the state,
which already has made such an en
viable showing in providing recruits
for Uncle Sam.
If a man is solne to be conscripted,
anyway, urge the National Guard of
ficers and men who are on detail at
recruiting headquarters, why not en
list voluntarily a few days earlier and
Join a congenial outfit?
One such outfit is the Third Oregon
Infantry, one of the crack National
Guard regiments In the United States,
all of whose higher officers are se
lected from men who have had actual
war experience under fire. The Third
Oregon Is only 50 men under maximum
war strength, and Colonel John Lv May
desires to enlist these 50 within the
next few days.
Battery B is another good outfit to
Join. Battery B will undoubtedly be
one of the artillery organizations sent
to France at the earliest opportunity.
Already nearly 75 men have been en
listed In the new unit, but more than
100 others are needed. There Is first-
class opportunity for advancement for
the right men in this battery.
The officers of Battery B will be
chosen from men of experience. The
battery itself has as its instructor Ser
geant Petrick, of the Sixth United
States Field Artillery, accounted one of
the best sergeant-instructors in the

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal, July 11.
(Special.) It is possible the Northern
Pacific Steamship Company will re
establish the Honolulu service with the
turbiner Great Northern out of this
port long before the regular Winter
season, as has been customary in the
past. The placing of the liner on the
island run depends upon the action of
the United States Government In tak
ing over vessels on this ooast and the
possibilities of tourist trade from the
East. Humors have been rife for some
weeks that the Matsonla and Maui, of
the Matson fleet, would be taken by
the Government for hospital or troop
ships. If these two vessels are taken
over, their places may be filled by put
ting the Great Northern on the run
earlier than usual.
H. A. Jackson, traffic manager of
the company, expects to receive word
from Eastern agents within a short
time concerning the change. The
change depends on the Government's
not finding use for the Great Northern
i a naval auxiliary.
There is no secret of the fact offi
cers of the Great Northern and North
ern Pacific have been passed on for
Government service and that the ships
are accessible for transportation re
quirements when an official order Is
As to the Honolulu service, it la not
questioned that If the vessels remain
on the Pacific under their present man
agement the Great Northern will be
returned to the California-Hawaiian
Island route. That is usually started
the latter part of November and about
10 round trips are scheduled. Should
the Matson line vessels be taken by the
tiovernment, travel will be heavier than
the present steamers in the trade can
handle during the tourist season, so
the Great Northern might be shifted
from the Flavel-Sac Francisco route in
October or earlier.
The Northern Pacific arrived In the
river yesterday and the Great North
ern leaves the Golden Gate today with
