19 THE SUNDAY OKEGOJflAN, PORTLAND, FJUBXiUAKY 11, 1917. GERARD HAS GHAT WITH CHANCELLOR Friendly Conversation Is Had on Subjects of Semi Political Nature. EMBASSY IS DESERTED Calls Are Blade on Representatives of Xeutrals Who Say Goodbye and Germans Are Courteous In Examination of Baggage. BEKXJN. Feb. 10. 4:30 P. M., via Lon don. Feb. 11. 4:55 A. M. Ambassador Gerard paid his final respects this af ternoon to the Imperial Chancellor, Dr. von Bethmann-Hollweg; and the Secre tary of Foreign Affairs, Alfred Zimmer man, spending- about an hour with ach in friendly semi-political conversation which he iater characterized as par ticularly amiable. He tten returned to the Embassy and supervised the last details for his departure. Most of the neutral diplo matic representatives had called on Ambassador Gerard for brief visits and he prepared to return as many of these calls as possible before leaving-. Mr. Gerard received the American correspondents, some of whora'ara staying- here temporarily, and had a con fidential chat with them. -He an nounced only for publication that he had left with a committee of distin guished Germans named by him 400, 000 marks, this money being the "Ger ard fund" collected durlngr his recent visit to the United States and that he intends to stop at Berne for three or four days for anticipated Instructions. All day the American Embassy re sembled a house during the process of Spring- house-cleaning. Various attaches and employes, who will now scatter to all the corners of Europe or return to the United States, were buey with farewells. When the final details of the pack ing were finished the old Wilhelraplatz looked forlorn. In response to a noti fication of the Foreign Office, all Americans going on the Embassy train to Switzerland gathered at the Ann alt station between 8 and 11 o'clock this morning with their personal effects, more or less encompassed In from, one Buitcase to ten trunks. The examination of the baggage by the military and customs authorities was arranged for Berlin rather than at th Bwlss border by special courtesy. It was superintended by officials of the Foreign Office. The examination, although careful, was marked with the greatest courtesy and was concluded epeedily. The moving of personal belongings to the railway station was not without Its humorous side. Taxicabs are rare ties nowdays and Americans who had been in Berlin for years had to trans port their household property and per sonal belongings oftentimes by make shift methods decrepit horse cabs and even streetcars. The gathering of Americans with the resultant flow to English in public failed to cause the slightest ripple of excitement among the residents of Ber lin, who today, as ever since the be ginning of the break with America, maintained a studied courtesy. ner of the National Hockey Associa tion are yet far distant, the locals are hoping against hope that they will be able to pull through. Tonight's game was an exhibition of real hockey. Goalie Fowler, of the visitors, was hard pressed throughout, and he managed to stop some great shots during the entertainment. A ca pacity bouse greeted the puckchasers tonight. A return game will be played here Tuesday night, at the same tima that Seattle is entertaining the Uncle Sams. , The lineup: Vancouver (8) Pot (11 Spokane. Lehman CJ Fowler K.

The Portland battler took big leads In the third, fourth, ninth, tenth, elev enth and fourteenth rounds, whila wens naa tne slight edge In the sec ond, seventh and fifteenth. The draw decision was all right, but It did look as though Bobby Evans' protege Was the better man after taking Into con deration the way the boys went at it. The first, fifth, sixth, eighth. tweirtn and thirteenth rounds were about even. Manager Evans and Al Sommers plan to leave for Portland tomorrow. ' The big factor which Sommers used to make such a great showing, here tonight was a straight left. He kept it continually In Wells' face. It was a rattling good bout. Montana State 38, Gonzaga 13.

The Vancouver Millionaires to night tightened the gap between them and the Seattle league-leaders of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association by handing tha Spokane Canaries an S-to-1 lacing. At no time did the visitors have a look-in, and Manager Patrick had his breadwinners working at full speed at all times. From the way the Millionaires went tonight and the way the 1 Portland Uncle Sams showed against the Mets in Portland Friday night, it would seem that the Seattleites as yet have not copped the pennant, as many of the Hound City followers are apt to be lieve.

There Is a process going on within the body which often poisons us. It Is something like the story of the snake being able to kill itself with its own poisons. This is the formation of uric acid in excess within the body. It is a waste product which takes place in the liver. This poisonous uric acid is then passed on to the kidneys, which act as a filter to pass off and excrete this poison. If the kidneys are clogged no, Inactive, the poison degenerates these organs and causes kidney disease. If it is deposited in the tissues, around the joints of the body, it causes rheumatism or gout. Consequently wo must do everythln to throw off this uric acid poison, and simple methods are best. Flush the kidneys by drinking plenty of water between meals; a pint of hot water morning and night is splendid. Take Anuric (double strength) three times a day for a while and get the kidneys to working by flushing out this poison. That painful affliction, known as gout. as well as muscular rheumatism, 1 caused by the uric acid crystals being deposited in the big toes or tissues. The man who uses his brain, perhaps over taxing his nervous energy, will suffer fits of blues, depression, headache, nleeplessness, loss of memory, all duo to the poison of urlo acid. The man who does physical work, using his mus cles, occasionally complains of slug' gishness, muscular tired feeling, mus cular stiffness or aches, neuralgic twinges symptoms all due to this uric acid accumulation. In every case I ad vise hot water, und Anuric taken three times daily a simple, safe remedy, which Is to ba had at almost every drug store.

That the men of the University are coms Into their own in scholarship and surpassing the co-eds seems to be the verdict of the recent examinations completing the first semester of the school year or 1916-17. There wera 82 students who managed to Inscribe their names on the honor roll of all-S and H students. In percentage B would mean 85 and II 100. While in the list or 3Z me men are In the minority with 13, yet their average is much higher than that of the women. The lead is taken by Fred Melzer, of Baker, Or., who was the only student to get an all-H card. His record was 17 hours of H. Next to him came Lewis Bond, a graduate student in chemistry, who achieved 11 hours II in chem istry. Law students are supposed to have the hardest course in school, and the person who wine an "S" Is con sidered an "H" student. So the record of Frank Farrell, law student from Medford and a iSlgma Nu. in making It hours of "S." or a straight "S card, is held on almost a par with that of Melzer.
