Mrs. Alice M. McXausht Tells of
Democratic Convention at Wom
en's Club Meeting.
"The rank and file of the demo
crats of the United States wanted
William Gibbs McAdoo for president,"
declared Mrs. Alice M. McNaught, al
ternate at the democratic convention,
who addressed the Democratic Wom
an's club yesterday afternoon in room
A of the central library on her im
pressions o the convention.
Mrs. McNaught bases McAdoo's de
feat on the fact that he had no or
ganization. She hastened to explain
that although she was one of' Mc
Adoo's most ardent supporters, she
was not against Cox. She declared
that Cox cannot make the country
wet unless congress o wills it and
cautioned everyi woman to take care
to put the right men into congress
The speaker characterized the con
vention as one of the fairest, most
open conventions in the world and
said that she wished everyone of her
democratic friends could have been
present. Mrs. McNaught passed her
alternate's badge about among the
club members and said that it meant
more to her than a $100 bill.
. The members of the club seem to
be as strongly in favor of Woodrow
Wilson" as ever, for every time his
name was mentioned applause fol

State Rifle Competition Opens to
Select-Team to Be Sent to .
Camp Perry, Ohio.
CAMP LEWIS, Wash., July 10.
(Special.) The Oregon camps here
were all but deserted this afternoon
When leave was given to two-thirds
of the entire command to leave camp
from Saturday noon until Sunday
night. Many of the Oregon citizen
soldiers are visiting Tacoma, Seattle
and other Puget sound points after a
busy week spent in drilling and ma
neuvering. Those required in camp
to keep up the necessary guard duty
and routine will be permitted by Colo
nel C. C. Hammond, regimental com
mander, to leave next Saturday after
noon and Sunday.
The state rifle competition opened
this morning on the camp rifle range
and on the result selections will be
made by the adjutant-general of thoue
who are to attend the national rifle
competition at Camp Perry, O., early
Eighteen Oregon soldiers will be
sent east in a special sleeping car the
end of July. Fifty competitors for
places on the team were trying out
for position today under the supervl
sion of Lieutenant-Colonel Woolpert
of Salem and ' Lieutenant A. "A.
Schwarz of Portland. Lieutenant
Schwarz is a veteran of many national
competitions and probably will be
coach of the Oregon team.
All Oregon officers attending the
15 days of field maneuvers at this
place are making their own beds, tak
ing care of their own shoes and quar
ters and running . their -own personal
chores. This as a result of orders
issued by Colonel' George A. White,
adjutant-general of Oregon, and
which became effective Immediately
before camp, to the effect that en
listed men are not allowed to flunkey
for officers under any circumstances,
even if they make apnleation for
such duty. , Among the objections to
the practice, quoted in the order, is
that it deprives the men of oapor
tunities for strictly military insfruc
tion and is prejudicial to the best in
terests of the service. Those requir
ing personal servfee are advised to
hire professional flunkeys not be
longing to the service. The order
smashes a military custom that is as
old as the military service itself.
