TIIE MORNING O RE G O NI AN. FRIDAY, JULY . 19, 1918.
PHYSICIANS OF U.S.
10 BE MOBILIZED
Government Will Soon Take
Control of Medical Pro
fession of U. S.
50,000 NEEDED FOR ARMY
All Doctors in Country AVill Be En
rolled, Including Those Disquali
fied for Military Service Vol
untary Corps Is Planned.
"WASHINGTON, July 18. The Gov
ernment is about to assume control of
the entire medical profession in the
United States to obtain sufficient doc
tors for the Army and at the same
time to distribute those remaining to
the localities or services -where they
are most needed for civilian work.
This mobilization is to be accom
plished either by the enrolling of all
doctors in a voluntary service corps
under pledge to accept whatever serv
ice, military or civilian, assigned them,
or. If the voluntary plan i not success
ful, by legislation providing for the
drafting of them into service.
Medical officers of .the Government
believe compulsory conscription will
not be necessary.
3Vo Exceptions Made.
Acommittee of Army and Navy sur
peons completed today recommenda
tions for inclusion in the volunteer
'medical service corps all doctors, in
stead of only those disqualified for
military service.
Of the 143,000 doctors in the United
States, it is estimated between SO, 000
and 95,000 are in active practice, and
3,000, or about one-fourth, are in the
Army or Navy. Nearly 60,000 will be
required eventually for the Army.
It became known today that Surgeon-General
Gorgas, of the Army;
Braisted, of the Navy, and Blue, of the
. Public Health Service, are considering
a plan for the commissioning of all
teachers in medical schools and as
signing them to their present duties.
This would constitute a means of pre
venting further disruption of medical
teaching staffs, and at the same time
recognizing the public service of these
men.
Enrollment Already Started.
Organization plans for the volunteer
medieal service corps have already
been made and enrollment has started
In a few etates under authority of
the Council of the National Defense.
Instead of enrolling in this corps
only those physicians not suitable for
military service, either because of age,
physical infirmity, dependency or in
stitutional, or public need, as planned
at present, the Government is expected
ehortly to throw open the membership
to all doctors, and to bind them with
a, pledge "during the .present emer
gency to accept eervice. military or
civilian,-, wherever,, whenever and for
whatever, duty h may be called bythe
central governing board."

among the residents and property own
ers on Portland Heights. The manner
in which the Portland Heights prop
erty has been taxed, it is claimed, is
out of proportion to other sections of
the city, as the assessment for each lot
runs from $40 to $60. The people claim
to be willing to pay their share, but
think a mistake has been made in ad
justing the cost of the sewer, as the
district is so remote from the improve
ment that it will give them little bene
fit. The matter has been taken up by the
Portland Heights Improvement Associ
ation and President George W. Hoyt
and Secretary Fred W. German will
head a delegation of citizens who will
attend the next meeting of the City
Council and ask that levying of the as
sessment be postponed until such time
as the residents can be made fully
acquainted with the conditions sur
rounding the building of the sewer and
the methods employed in making the
assessment.
YANKEES OUTDO HUNS
BATTLE - SCARRED .
TELLS OF JULY 4
SERGEANT
"SHOW."
Sick- and Wounded in London Hos
pitals Cheerful and Optimistic,
Cared For by XT. S. Doctors.
LONDON, July 18. The American
soldiers who have arrived at London
hospitals in the last few days are
cheerful and optimistic lot. They are
grouped mostly in four or five metro
politan hospitals and as far as possible
have been put together In wards where
they can provide plenty of companion
ship for one another.
The Americans include both sick and
wounded. The wounded are largely
from the Fourth of July "show," by
the Americans and Australians south
of the Somme.
"The Yanks and the Aussies get
along fine together," said Sergeant
Torrey, of Olean, N. T., to the Associ
ated Press, "and the combination is
too much for Mr. Hun. The Germans
are forced to admit that it is all up
when they see" the Americans and Aus
tralians coming after them."
The ward in which Sergeant Torrey
and a dozen other Americans were be
ing treated also contains' 10 Austral
ians. Most of these men already are
convalescent and spend the day swap
ping yarns on the sunlit porch.
American women visit the hospitals
daily and distribute American news
papers and magazines, cigarettes, choc
olates and. other delicacies from the
stores of the American Red Cross.
Every American woman Visitor at the
hospitals Wednesday carried a supply
of American flags and before the day
was over every bed occupied by an
American soldier had a silk flag hang
ing proudly above it.
Virtually all the Americans in Lon
don hospitals are being cared for by
American doctors.
COAL PRICES TO ADVANCE
Ercight Increases and Labor
Cost
Responsible for Rise.
As a result of investigations
con-Dai-
ducted in the state by George T.
ton, special representative of the Fed
eral Trade Commission, prices of coal
are to be immediately lifted, according
to Fred J. Holmes, state fuel adminis
trator.
Higher prices are made necessary to
meet freight advances, approximating
per cent. Advanced labor costs have
not fully been cared for in present price
schedules, it is also said.
Just how much the price of coal will
be revised upward and just when the
advances will b,e made Mr. Holmes
could not say.
Slight 'readjustment of delivery
charges in Portland probably will be
made. Mr. Holmes said, this adjustment
being in the nature of a reduction
which will affect the outlying districts
particularly. On the old basis the de
livery charge was raised 25 cents for
each 20 blocks the coal is hauied be
yond prescribed downtown sections.

ALLIED
AVIATORS
MASTER
Bombarding and Observation
Planes Do Brilliant WorJc
Harassing Foe's Forces.
MOTOR DRIVERS ARE BRAVE
Troops Are Transported to Different
Parts of Battle Front as Needed
for Pour Days Without Rest
by Automobile Men.
ON THE FRENCH FRONT IN
FRANCE, July 18. (By the Associated
Press.) Notable work has been done by
allied aviators during the new German
offensive. The bombarding, observa
tion and battle planes have been con
stantly busy and the mastery of the
air has been maintained throughout.
The air forces constantly harassed
the attacking columns of the enemy
and supplied information from moment
to moment to the French staff.
One of the principal elements which
worked toward bringing the German
offensive to a halt was the splendid
co-operation of the transport and in
formation services. In Champagne,
lorry drivers passed four days and
nights without a moment's repose, hur
rying troops from one section of the
line to another, often under heavy
fire.
Pigeons Do Good Work.
Carrier pigeons proved most impor
tant in the Champagne fighting, where
the French advance posts were often
cut off from the main body.
The birds constantly brought back
messages concerning movements of
the Germans. In one instance a pigeon
brought a request that French artil
lerymen fire on a position occupied by
their own comrades, because the tier
mans were surrounding them. The
gunners complied, mowing lanes in the
German waves. Their wonderful ac
curacy of aim spared their comrades,
many of whom made their way back.
The enormous losses of the Germans
during the crossing of the Marne must
have been fully equaled in the Cham
pagne sector, where their assaulting
waves were hurled vainly against deep
barriers of barbed wire under the fire
of hundreds of machine guns.
German Dead Cover Hillsides.
Monday when the Germans were
bringing forward reserve divisions near
the Moronviller hills the French gun
ners got their exact range with telling
effect. When the smoke cleared great
heaps of dead and wounded men and
horses were plainly visible on the
slopes.
