victim to a misunderstanding, with the
result that his nsme was sent to A si sl

a "slacker." The feleral authorities
sent a deputy marshal to LaOrande to
take charge, but by the time he got
there, Forsstrom was found duly regis
tered and given a clean bill.
The humiliation of Mr. Forsstrom.
who U an excellent American, was not
relieved by publication of his name,
with that of another. Though the au
thorities, so far as is known, acted in
good faith in the matter. Mr. Forsstrom
feels that an unwarranted stigma has
been cast upon him.
Records of the local exemption board
show that he is registered In precinct
37 H in Portland and his serial number
Assistant United States Attorney
Rankin had wired Sheriff Warnick of
Union county to hold Forsstrom until
he was sent for, and that Investigation
of the charge against him would, be
made. This investigation speedily and
thoroughly cleared him.
