War Department Reorganiza
tion Plans Incomplete.
What Size Army Will Be W hen Peace
Is Actually Declared Is Ques
tion Xot Worked Out.
WASHINGTON", Nov. 13. Plans for
reorganization of the "War Department
and the Army are in formulation by the
general staff and soon will be before
Secretary Baker. Orders for the actual
breaking up of the Army cannot be pro
mulgated until these plans are com
pleted, as the demobilization pro
gramme is dependent to some extent
upon the adoption of a reorganization
The Secretary had indicated new leg
islation will be necessary to carry out
the reorganization and is. expected to
lay a definite programme before Con
gress at the earliest possible moment.
Existing law authorizes the mainte
nance of a regular Army of approxi
mately 375,000 men. "While it is not
possible to forecast the number of
American troops that must be em
ployed in Europe after the peace
treaties have been signed military men
believe the authorized regular esta
lishment cannot provide an adequate
force for all purposes at home and
Of the 3,700,000 men under arms, not
more than 100,000 are under obligation
to serve beyond the restoration of
peace. There were 7000 officers and
about 120,000 men in the regular Army
when war was declared. Expiration ol
enlistments probably has served to re
duce this considerably and all war
time enlistments are for the war period
only. Thousands of officers in service
a re on temporary commissions in the
regular establishment. The commis
sions were issued for a definite period
of years and the men might be held,
although the general attitude of the
department would not indicate any in
tention of holding such officers against
their will when the war emergency has
The number of men necessary to be
maintained in Europe probably will be
worked out by General Pershing's staff,
and since similar calculations for the
United States and its possession are be
ing made here it is expected that the
eire of the Army for which it will be
necessary to provide soon will be

being incomplete, give Bennett 12.431,

face of these returns is 157S.
The incomplete returns from Grant
County so far as reported give Camp

that the completed count from this
Eastern Oregon county will show that
it has been carried by Bennett but
should the country go for Coke, the ad
vantage will not be sufficient to over
come the lead Bennett now has.
Severaldays will elapse before the
official count can be completed by the
Secretary of State and the result of Xhe

considerable confusion resulting in this
county from holdinir the general and
municipal elections simultaneously, the
official count for Multnomah will not

Registrants . Under New Order Are
Required to Retnrn Blanks to
Their Local Boards.
Questionnaires now in the hands of
men between the ages of 37 and 46
years do not have to be filled out, but
must be returned to the local board
which issued them, according to a tele
gram received yesterday from Provost
Marshal-General Crowdef by Captain
Cullison, draft executive of Oregon.
This is a cancellation of an order of
November 12, which ordered that local
boards would discontinue sending out
more questionnaires to men between
the ages of 37 and 46 years, but that
all questionnaires now out must be re
turned filled. Failure to comply with
this last clause of the November 13 or
der was classed as desertion.
The order received yesterday after
noon will affect several thousand Ore
gon men in Portland.
General Crowder has sent the follow
ing order to draft boards:
"The President directs registrants
who on September 12, 1918, had at
tained their thirty-seventh birthdays
and who had received questionnaires
need not fill them out, but they are
requested to return the documents to
their local boards. No charge of de
linquency will be entered against any
such registrants for failure to fill out

Change From War to Peace
Basis Will Be Task.
President Is Considering Appoint
ment of Commission to Develop
Comprehensive Programme.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 13. President
Wilson has under consideration the
appointment of a reconstruction com
mission to develop a comprehensive
programme for the Nation's conversion
from a war to a peace basis.
The commission would be advisory
rather than executive in functions and
the plans developed by it would be
carried out by existing Government
The President Is understood to op
pose the plan of a Congressional com
mittee preparing a reconstruction
programme. He is said to prefer men
who can give their entire time to the
work and who have made special
studies of economic and social prob
lems. Measures to promote agricultural co
operation between the United States,
England, France, Italy and Belgium
during peace reconstruction are under
consideration by these nations.
To work out effective plans an inter
national congress of agricultural
leaders including belligerent and neu
tral nations, may be held with the
peace conference.
Railroad Wages to Continue.
The Railroad Administration plans no
reduction in railroad employes' wages
under peace conditions, and likewise no
material lowering of freight or pas
senger rates, it was stated authorita
tively today. Both are likely to re
main at their present levels, although
with many readjustments, during the
period- of changing the - Nation from
war to peace.
Director-General McAdoo has de
clared he would lower rates as soon as
it was determined revenues would be
sufficient to pay wage increases and
the higher cost of materials, supplies
and other transportation elements.
Restrictions will be continued by the
Government's capital issues committee
on the floating of securities for build
ing, road construction and development
enterprises not absolutely essential, it
was said officially today, despite the
war industries board's partial removal
of limitations on non-war construction
and manufacturing. .
Another Loan Necessary.
In view of the necessity of obtaining
another big war loan in the Spring, the
Treasury holds that the securities mar
ket still must be left open largely for
Government securities.
- Continuation of Government super
vision of the steel industry during the
period of readjustment to peace condi
tions was recommended today by the
steel committee of the American Iron
and Steel Institute at its first meeting
with the War Industries Board since
the signing of the armistice.
Regulations requiring householders
and bakers to purchase 20 per cent ot
substitutes with each purchase of
wheat flour were withdrawn today by

ending of a matrimonial venture be
tween the comely young woman and
her former employer. Mrs. Kauffman

the meantime she Is held in default

Mrs. Kauffman was arraigned before

unconscious by the use of ether. Upon
learning that the couplo were married.

released the woman. But before she
could leave the Courthouse the husband
caused a second warrant to bo served

The Danger of Imitations.
N OHIO druggist writes to "The Practical Druggist," a prominent New York
Drug .ounial, as
formulas I have worked with are either ineffective or disagreeable to administer."
To this "The Practical Druggist" replies : . "We do not supply formulas for
proprietary articles. We couldn't if we wanted to. Your experience with imitative
formulas is not surprising, but just what is to be expected. When Castoria is
wanted, why not supply the genuine. If you make a substitute, it is not fair or
right to label it Castoria. We can give you all sorts of laxative preparations for
children, but not Qastoria, and we think a mother who asks for Castoria would not
feel kindly toward you if you gave her your own product under such a name."
No mother with a spark of affection for her child will overlook the signa
ture of Chas. H. Fletcher when buying Castoria.

Hr. Frank H. Cafferty, of Providence, R. I., pays: "If all young
