THE MORNING OREGOXIATT, THIJIISDAT, JULY 12, 1917. 9 f A ELIGIBLES WARNED 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 from Washington. 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 made. 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 days. 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 ments. . 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 June 30. 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: Rbb. Nafl County Army. Guard.

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 business.

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 issued. 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 Portland passengers. MOTHER FILES CHARGE lirSBAJTD ACCUSED OF KIDNAPING IJTFAXT.
