District Bodies Authorized to
Use Discretion in Deciding
Matter of Preference.
length of Service of Employes Will
Be Taken Into Consideration in
Order to Defeat Any Attempt
to Dodge Conscription,
WASHINGTON, Sept 9. Tho new
priorities classification of industry an
oounced yesterday by the War Indus
tries Board will not bind district draft
boards in determining deferred classl
fication on occupational grounds of
men between the ages of 18 and 45 who
are to register Thursday.
The boards may determine that other
Industries are necessary, but in grant
ing deferred classifications they must
satisfy themselves that the industry is
necessary and that the individual reg
istrant is essential to the industry.
This was disclosed by General Crow
der's plans for occupational exemptions
In classifying new registrants.
The new draft regulations provide
for an advisory committee of three to
each district board, one to be named
by the Department of Labor, onet by
the Department of Agriculture and 'the
third by the board Itself.
Much Leeway Allowed
The new regulation says:
"Such lists shall not be regarded as
binding upon the district board in its
conclusions as to whether or not any
particular industry, occupation, or em
ployment, including agriculture, is
necessary industry, occupation, or em
ployment within the meaning of the
law and regulations, nor shall such
lists prevent the district board from
holding as necessary any industry, oc
cupation or employment including agri
culture, not contained therein.
"Such preference lists and other facts
nd information in the possession of
ouch advisers will supplement the in
formation in possession of the district
boards, and will also be used to assist
the district boards In dealing with
specific cases."
Detailing the method boards are to
follow, the regulations say a registrant
hall be considered entitled to exemp
tion only when "completely engaged"
In an occupation the boards clans' as
essential: when his removal would re
sult in substantial damage to the en
terprise and when "the available sup
ply of persons competent in the ca
pacity is such that the registrant
cannot be replaced without direct, sub
stantial, material loss and detriment to
the effective operation of the enter
Length of Service Counts.
Further restricting the granting of
deferred classification on industrial
grounds, the regulations notify board
that they should consider among othe
things the length of time a 'registrant
has been In employment and become
convinced before granting his claim
that he is "not now so engaged for the
primary purpose of avoiding military
The regulations fix the place of
necessary workmen in. a necessary oc
cupation in Class 2, the place of an
expert or assistant manager or divi
sional head in Class S, and the place of
a sole manager or director in class 4.
The advisory committees to the draft
boards are empowered to claim deferred
classifications for registrants who are
entitled to It. but who for patriotic
reasons may object to making the
claim for themselves. General Crowder
has insisted registrants entitled to such
classification should make the claim
when filling out their questionnaires as
a patriotic duty to prevent unnecessary
work by the draft boards.

White Salmon District Helps to Swell
Wheat Output.
WHITE SALMON,- 'Wash, Sept. 9.
(Special.) An increasing acreage has
been sown to wheat by the orchardists
of the White Salmon Valley during the
past few years. Until this year the
wheat has been cut for hay, but to
show their loyalty to the Government
of them for shoulderbars and special-! and to aid in furnishing the wheat re-
ized service In the American Army is
the fundamental purpose of the stu-
dnts' Army training corps, authorized
by the War Department in more than
400 colleges and universities, accord
ing to Da P. L. Campbell, president of
the University of Oregon, who returned
last night from Washington, D. C.
Not only are the high school grad
uates of last year urgently desired
for immediate enrollment in the mil
itary course provided by the various
colleges, relates President Campbell,
but all high schools will be asked so
to condense thein courses that senior
students of the present term may com
plete their work by January and en
roll for the military college course.
President Campbell went East in July,
Hwhere he first attended the convention
of the National Education Association,
having charge of ' the department of
higher education. At the conclusion of
the assembly he proceeded from Pitts
burg to Washington, where he has since
remained as secretary and treasurer of
the American Council on Education, an
organization of National scope which
has worked with the War Department
in the organization of the students'
Army training course for all states.
Opportunity Offered Young Men.
"The purpose of the council was to
mobilize the educational resources of
our colleges and universities to the
fullest extent for war purposes," said
President ?ampbell last night. "There
is nothing sentimental about the step,
which is dictated by urgent need for
specially trained material for commis
sions and technical work.
The Students' Army Training Corps
offers a remarkable opportunity to
young men. Subject to call in any
case, the privilege Is afforded them of
receiving special training whlcn wm

for technicians, for medical worn lor
any service for which they show spe
cial qualification.
The work has very important as
pects, both for the present and post
war periods. While the primary object
is to supply trained men for officer
material and technicians, it is also the
object of the Government to keep in
tact the educational programme of the
country during the war, not permitting
It to break down under war stress, as
have those of France and Lngland.
Way Osesed to Officers' Camps.
"The advantages to many of the stu
dents will become apparent when it is
realized that 90.000 additional officers
will be needed for service by next
June. A large number of the boys en
rolled in the Students' Army Training
Corps will have the opportunity to at
tend officers' training camps. This Is
big, generous policy that the War
Department is offering. Its importance
cannot be overestimated. The boys are
paid from (he date of their enlistment,
and they are supplied with uniform,
rooms, subsistence and tuition.
"Those who 'are now enrolling will
be tested by January, to determine
their fitness for certain work. The
boys who are selected for courses at
officers' training camps may leave in
January, .while .those selected for
technicians or medical work will con
tinue their special studies along those
lines in higher courses."
Dr. Campbell talked interestingly of
the varied projects of the American
Council on Education, comprising the
ork of a committee on international
relationships, which is designed to
perfect mutual understandings and
standardized courses that will permit
the passage of students from one coun
try to the other, taking full advantage
of the educational facilities provided
by both.
Preach G4rl Get Scholarships.
Another phase of work was the se
curing of scholarships in American col
leges and universities for French girls.
Already 127 .scholarships have been of-
quired, threshing and binding machines
have been purchased and the wheat
properly matured and threshed.
Western Klickitat County will fur
nish this season close to 25,000 bushels
of this grain. In the Husum district
some orchardists have even taken out
blocks of their trees and sown entire
tracts to wheat.

Tooth Troubles Are
Caused by a Film
Now it is known that a film on teeth causes nearly all
tooth troubles. That discovery has upset all old teeth
cleaning theories.
Today every authority knows that cleaning teeth
means more than brushing off debris. Tooth preserva
tion calls for something to constantly combat that film.
That slimy film which you feel with your tongue is
the great tooth destroyer. That is what discolors not
your teeth. It hardens into tartar. It holds food which
ferments and forms acid. It holds the acid in contact
with the teeth to cause decay.
Millions of germs breed in it. They, with tartar, are
the chief cause of pyorrhea. Also of many internal
troubles. The dental name for this film is bacterial plaque.
It gets into crevices, hardens and stays and resists the
tooth brush. It makes the teeth unclean unsafe
however well you brush them. Film-covered teeth are
bound to discolor. They constantly breed gem?s. And
pyorrhea, it is said, afflicts jninc folks in ten.
Film is the source of these troubles. And the chief
object of teeth cleaning is its removal. Unless you com
bat it day by day it will fix itself and stay.
These facts are now recognized by every authority.
Dentists long have known why brushing fails to save the
teeth. And science long has sought a way to fight this
dangerous film. '
Science now has found a way. Today it is embodied
in a dentifrice called Pepsodent. It has proved itself to
' able authorities by four .
years of clinical tests. Now
it seems clear that this in
vention will revolutionize
teeth cleaning.
Anyone can quickly
prove this. So we now sup
ply a One-Week tube and
urge everyone to try it.
The New-Day Dentifrice
Your Brushing Fails
to Remove It
The ordinary dentifrice is not sufficiently effective in
removing the film. Any soapy dentifrice is alkaline and
tends to make the film more resistant to the brush
That is why old methods have proved vineffective.
Teeth have still discolored, still decayed. Statistics show
that tooth troubles have constantly increased, despite th
wide use of the tooth brush.
The time has come to discard inefficient methods and
apply a film remover. Let one week show what Pepso
dent can do.
Pepsodent is based on pepsin, the digestant of albu
min. The film is albuminous matter. The object is to
dissolve the film, then to constantly prevent its formation.
Pepsin alone won't do. It must be activated, and the
usual activator is an acid, harmful to the teeth. But now
a harmless activating method has been found. Five gov
ernments have already granted patents. So pepsin now.
can be efficiently applied. -
Pepsodent embodies this new method. Years of clin
ical tests in thousands of cases have placad its efficiency
beyond any question. Today its use is advocated by den
tists everywhere. You will see the reason clearly when
you make a one-week test.
Present this coupon to any dealer listed below for a
One-Week tube. Use it like any tooth paste and watch
the results. Note how clean your teeth feel after using.
Mark the absence of the film. See how your teeth whiten
as the fixed film disappears.
Then you will know what clean teeth really mean.
You will know .that film can be combated. And never
again will you return, we
believe, to the old teeth
cleaning methods.
This is most important
to you. That film is your
teeth's great enemy.
