SHIP BEING SAVED
Oakland Will Be Launched
Soon in Nehalem Bay.
PORTLAND MAN IS ON JOB
Local Contractor Succeeds in Mak
ing Progress With Henry Al
bcrs Boat After Oth
ers Had Failed.
WHEELER. Or., July 30. (Special.)
The schooner Oakland, wrecked on
Manzanita beach in March, 1916. Is now
In fair way of being again put in com
mission. A. D. Moodle, of Portland, has taken
the vessel out of the sand and up over
the sea wall and already moved her at
least 1000 feet over the sand spit
toward Nehalem Bay, having: moved
It 160 feet Saturday. From this time
he expects to average 200 feet daily,
and to reach Nehalem Bay In two
weeks. Ways will be constructed and
the vessel put in seaworthy condition
by a craw of ship carpenters before
The Oakland is in much better con
dition than might be expected after a
year of buffeting by the tides and the
strain put on her by the many unsuc
cessful attempts to haul her out to sea
through the breakers.
Borne $12,000 has been spent In fruit
less attempts to float her out through
the surf. Contractor Moodie is mov
ing the ship easily with a crew of seven
men and will realize a good profit from
his contract price of J6000 for moving
and launching in Nehalem Bay.
Henry Albers, the present owner, will
be well repaid in salvaging and when
ready for sea the schooner will find
waiting cargoes at either the Wheeler
or Brighton mills.
VKSSEIj OKDEK IS 5IODIFIED
Publication Authorized of Move
ments of Vessels.
In an official bulletin to Pacific
Coast newspapers, dated at Washington,
July 24, Georgo Creel, of the commit
tee on public information. makes
known that movements of vessels to
and from the Orient may be published.
The bulletin is as follows: ,
"Subject to cancellation at the re
quest of the Navy Department, should
need arise, it is possible to give to the
Pacific" Coast newspapers the privilege
of publishing the arrivals and depart
ures of merchantmen to and from
Japan and China. Permission was
given In the bulletin of June 14, which
this bulletin supersedes, to publish the
arrival and departure of vessels en
gaged in American coastwise trade and
the arrival and departure of vessels
plying between the Pacific Coast and
Hawaii. This permission continues.
"The movement of all merchantmen
In the Atlantic trans-Atlantic or war
zone trade must remain scrupulously
safeguarded, directly and indirectly. No
hint of their names, routes, times of
departure, destintions or cargoes is per
missible." TRAINING CAMP DRAWS MANX
Oreconians Travel South to Meet
Relatives Now Soldiering.
One of the popular attractions in
California these days is the reserve
officers" camp at Presidio, San Fran
cisco, many parents, sisters and broth
ers, also sweethearts, being bound there
on vacation trips in order to spend
some time near the men, who are be
ing made'into officers for the big war.
The turbiner Northern Pacific, Cap
tain Hunter, sailing today, will have
approximately 250 passengers for the
Golden Gate and a fair sprinkling are
bound there principally to meet some
of the new soldiers. The Great North
ern Pacific management is keeping in
close touch with the camp life. With
the closing of the first camp, about the
middle of August, there will be only
a short interval until the second is
convened, when another large detach
ment of Oregon men will be put
through the same course the first
troops experienced. The steamers ar
riving at San Francisco steam past the
Presidio, so an idea is gained of the
big rendezvous from the water side.

Washington Asks for Data on Dead
weight Capacity of Fleet.
Telegraphic instructions from Wash
ington" direct Pacific Ouist steamship
owners to forward detailed Information
relative to the deadweight capacity, of
their vessels, which is taken to mean
that serious consideration is being
given a plan to draw on merchant ton

poses. It was reported here yesterday that
the Government had actually sent word
to the Matson Navigation Company
that two of its vessels would be com
mandeered, the Maui and Matsonia,
both operating between the Golden
Gate and Honolulu. It is said the Maui
will be utilized as a hospital ship and
that in connection with her draft into
the Federal service she will be per
mitted to make only one more voyage
to the Islands. The Matson interests
also operate the Wilhelmina and
.Manoa. As yet. no Pacific Coast vessels
have been requisitioned for transpor
tation or troops. '

STRIKES SUSPEND FREIGHTS
Association Declines to Quote Rates
on Lumber Prom Northwest.
Freights on lumber from Puget
Sound, Grays Harbor, Willapa Harbor
and the Columbia River to California
ports have been suspended, owing to
labor troubles in the .Northwest, says
the weekly circular of the Shipowners'
Association of the Pacific Coast, re
ceived here yesterday.
A week ago quotations from the
Northwest ports were $7 a thousand
feet to San Francisco and $8 to San
Pedro and San Diego. They are quoted
as usual from Coos Bay, Humboldt Bay
and MendooLno ports. As tome trouble
has been encountered at a rew camps
on the Columbia River, It is included
n the zone as far as Puget Sound, in
which no rates are named. Because of
the difficulties, some owners are laying
up their vessels for overhauling, though
as shipments are yet being made from
here as before, several ships that have
plied from Washington ports during
the past few months are being listed

Eight Apprentices Get Chance
to Be Officers.
PARENTS TO GIVE CONSENT
IT. S. Shipping Board Authorizes
Captain McNaught to Sign Boys
of 16 to 2 0 Years High
School Students Preferred.
Who will be the first of eight Port
land boys to sign on the American
bark Gamecock as an apprentice for
a voyage to the South Pacific?
Th Gamecock was the German bark
Arnoldus Vinnen, taken over by the
OX NEHALEM SANDS.
United States at the entrance of 'ills
country Into the war, and on that ves
sel boys are to be trained to become
future officers in the American mer
High school students are preferred,
and it is said that if the apprentices
display even ordinary aptitude they
will come home after the one voyage
with the rating of quartermaster. In
two years each should be a deck offi
ceronly a start, but that will be
the beginning of a sea career.
Captain W. C. McNaught, surveyor
for the San Francisco Board of Marine
Underwriters, who has directed the re
habilitation of the German vessel, yes
terday was authorized by the United
States Shipping Board to sign the eight
Consent of Parents Most Be Had.
"Apprentices must be between 16 and
20 years of age and the consent of their
parents must be had," said Captain
McNaught. "They are to be paid nom
inal wages for the voyage, and as
they will have no expenses aboard ship,
rations being provided by the Govern
ment, their only outlay will be for
suitable clothing. Many boys are
wanted who are prepared to 'do their
bit" In the future by navigating or
helping to officer United States ships.
Such opportunities have been rare in
the past and that Is one reason why
there are not more officers today.
Applications are to be made to Cap
tain McNaught, at room 707 In the
Board of Trade building. Fourth and
Oak streets. The Gamecock has orders
to load cargo at once. Her destina
tion will be made known to youths
accepted for the voyage. Captain
Swayne, master of the Gamecock, has
had experience with youngsters, one
of whom he met here a few days ago
that voyaged with him several years
ago, and he remarked how much he
had changed physically, being
brawny specimen, as compared to the
appearance ho presented when signed.
Apprentices Will Be Comfortable.
Special quarters have been built on
the Gamecock for the apprentices, and
they are to be made as comfortable as
possible. At that the voyage will not
be for pleasure and the boys will prob
ably be on duty ct the wheel from the
start, under the direction of the officer
on watch, and with "boxing the com
pass ana other trtcKs of the trade will
soon become as wise as the crew
It 13 assured the Gamecock will sail
In advance of the Dreadnought, as no
orders have come for the latter, which
will also carry apprentices. The ves
sels are to do their share in han
dling commerce during the war and
are Intended for service In the
Pacific. Steamers are being taken for
the requirements of the Governmen
in the Atlantic. In the general plan
nautical schools are being opened in
which to train ships" officers, one of
which will be located here.

There's one good thing about
planning your outing at the Oaks
and that is regardless of the
weather you can always come and
be sure, of a good time. If it's
windy or chilly, the Auditorium is
closed in a few seconds and the big
free attractions are given just the
same as on hot days when the cool
ing breezes are invited by leaving
the sides open. This week's free
offering "Abie's Night Out," is
worth going to see, as the songs
are splendid, the wardrobe new and
full of style suggestions and the
comedy exceedingly funny.
And the same weather protection
at the Jazz Band dances every
evening is afforded; even the
swimmers say they'd rather go in
on a cool afternoon than a hot one,
as the water is warmer than the
air. Don't forget the free swim-'
ming lessons every weekday be
