Here follows all about my career, and
then it mentions the man's name, and
that I am going to continue right on
with my career. So that is settled."
I jotted it all down In my memory
It sounds go nice and independent-like,
doesn't it? That's one reason why 1
started this story with Lillian Foster's
views. The other reason is because
I'm going to save a copy of it and mall
it to her one of these days, when I pick
up a paper on the morning after and
read where John Jones, soldier, etc.,

for France, married Lillian Foster and
that the lady is going to retire forever
from the footlights and go to Europe
to do Red Cross work.

Mayor Receives Word From Camp
Lewis Commandant Tbat Soldiers
Will Get Passes Public and
Private IlooTns Are Listed.
Although the transfer of the rail
roads to Government control is said
have knocked the special excursion
train idea in the head, Portland will
be host to a large number of troops
from Camp Lewis and other points Sat
urday night, Sunday and Monday night
and Tuesday, according to information
received yesterday by Mayor Baker.
The Mayor telegraphed to Brigadier
General Irons, commandant of the camp,
regarding the leaves of absence for
Saturday and New Year's day. The re
ply was to the erfect that men may
obtain passes from Saturday noon until
5:30 o'clock Monday morning and from
4 P. M. Monday until 6:30 A. M.
Wednesday. All men must be in camp
on Monday for the regular muster held
the last day of each month.
Both the O.-W. R. & N. and th
Northern Pacific have regular trains
leaving the camp each afternoon and
arrangements have been made for add
ing a sufficient amount of equlpraen
to carry the soldiers. They may re
turn to the camps on the regular trains
leaving Portland at midnight.
Inasmuch as the leave of absence to
be granted the boys is cow certain
plans have been started for a New
Year's entertainment at the public Au
ditorlum. The nature of this will be
decided at meetings today. The affair
probably will be similar to that at the
Auditorium on Christmas day, when the
soldiers were the guests of honor at
big dance and theatrical programme.
The committee of the War Emer
gency Council,, designated for service
in providing for the welfare of the vis
iting soldiers and sailors, got its work
well under way yesterday. Hotels and
proper lodging-houses were listed and
lists of private homes where the sol
diers are welcome were started. Also
the committee listed the restaurants
and got. their price lists. In selecting
the hotels and lodging-houses great
care was taken in seeing that the men
will not get into improper places. The
prices to be charged by all these places
were listed. It was found that the
hotels and rooming-houses either fixed
their rates for soldiers and sailors at
the same figure as for all classes of
persons or at less than the regular
prices. None sought to raise rates.
It is expected a large crowd of men
will be in from Camp Lewis Saturday
night on the train reaching here about
8 o'clock. The largest crowd Is ex
pected on Monday, however. Large
numbers of men are expected in both
Saturday and Monday from Fort Stev
ens. Fort Canby and Fort Columbia.
Provision will be made for transpor
tation from these points probably on
