th Arsronne forest, is Harold B.
Wiltse. son of B. C. . Wiltse of 548&
Commercial Court, who la now in a
hospital at' Hoboken, N. J. Writing
frnrt a. ha.se hosoltal in France, he
"1 went over the top on September
28, and we kept the Huns running for
14 days, when I was relieved, ir you
read the exploits of Major Whittlesey
and his battalion of BOO you will real
ize what I went through, as I was one
I was given charge of a squaa ;
when I was In the drive. The lieuten
ant told me I would hold the rank of
corporal, but don't know whether it
will be confirmed or not as he is also
in the hospital wounded.
Faeed Prasslaa Gaards
"We met the kaiser's famous Prus
sian Guards. They cut our line of
communication and surrounded us. We
held them off for six days and m tnat
time I never had a bite to eat. Their
machine guns commanded our only
water hole, but we got to it, anyway.
They bombed, shelled us and made re
peated attacks on us, but our little
band held them, until rescued on the
sixth day. I cannot go into the details
of the fight, but the looks of the bat
tlefield could be compared to "Custer's
"Airplanes tried to drop bandages
and foodstuffs to us, but they fell into
the Germans' hands. We did not have
bandages to wrap our wounded. Sev
eral of the aviators lost their lives."
It will be remembered that the bat
talion had advanced into the heart of
the thickly wooded forest of Argonne
with about 600 men, mostly from New
Tork and the west. Each man carried
120 rounds of rifle ammunition and they
immediately encountered stiff resistance
from the Germans who were entrenched
above them with mounted machine guns
on a hill. Company A lost all its of
ficers In the first attack on the hill.
The men were surrounded and their
only source of water supply was
swamp to which they made their way at
niaht through a storm oi macmne gun
fire which the Boche sent about the
pool. Kvery afternoon the Germans
dashed- down the hill like lo.uou aevus
al yelling at the top of their voices.
They heaved down hand grenades and
swept the Americans 'ith machine gun
fire but the little hand would not give
tip. On the sixth day the Germans sent
a blindfolded messenger who carriea a
white flag and who asked the Americans
to surrender. Major Whittlesey simply
remarked that they could "Go to hell,
and some time that evening relief came.
Praises Bed Cross
Private Wiltse cannot say too much
In praise of the Red Cross:
Wlten I was In tne training camp,
the Red Cross gave me a sweater and if
I hadn't had it In this drive am sure
I would have died of exposure. I have
blessed the Red Cross and the woman
that made that sweater a thousand times.
It is the most treasured possession I
own, in fact it is the only thing I have,
as I lost everything.
In coming into the hospital Uncle
Sam takes everything away from the
soldier, even to the shoes, so they can
be sterilized and put into first class
shape, but I will be getting more clothes
in a few days, so will be able to stir
around a bit.
Segleeted Getting Souvenirs
"Talk about souvenirs! I could have
had a frelghtNcar full, everything from
helmets to fleldxglasses, radiolite com
passes, automatic revolvers, everything
you could imagine, but I was feeling too
rotten to pick up anything.
"The Red Cross is the finest organi
sation the world has ever., known. The
folks at home should do all they can to
aid them. These are the sentiments of
every soldier I have met. The Salva
tion Army- and K. of C. are also fine,
though their resources are limited."
Man Who Failed to
Conscience-stricken because he failed
to fill out his questionnaire, Tom
Aynes, aged 26, of Braggs, Okla-, sur
rendered to the federal authorities
Monday and is now confined in the
Multnomah county jail pending In
vestigation of his case by John .Beck
man, assistant United States attorney
The only excuse Aynes gave for his
failure to fill out his questionnaire
was that his heart "weakened." He
declared he was not' yellow.
A charge of failure to fill out his
questionnaire probably will be filed
against Aynes who, according to his
own statements, has just been "wan
dering around" the country since he
received his questionnaire.
POn MILK HIGH
IN QUALITY BUT NOT
UP TO OLD STANDARD
City Milk Chemist Calloway
Makes Report After Analyzing
4800 Samples of lilk.
Milk consumed by Portlanders is still
high in quality, though not up to the
pre-war standard, according to data
fathered by City Milk Chemist, E. C.
"The records of the milk division of
the Portland health bureau," said Mr,
Calloway, "show that Portland milk is
still of a high quality on average and
is fast Improving after discouraging war
"While the price of milk has been high,
Portland consumers have certainly re
ceived their money's worth. The aver
age solid food in 4800 samples ana
lysed In the bureau of health labora
tories was 13 per cent, or 700 calories
per quart. The average for most large
cities Is 12.2 per cent, or 640 calories
per quart. This would make Port
land's milk worth more In food value
by one and a half cents per quart
than the average milk in Chicago or
New York, for instance.
"On a basis of purity, 44.6 per cent
of Portland's milk would rank as excel
lent, being under 10,000 bacterial count.
"Labor conditions are improving on
dairy farms and in milk producing
plants. While the price of feed is still
in the air, there is more of the rlht
kind of feed available."
"Portland people'seem to be willing to
pay a fair and Just price for milk but
no more. Thus dairymen are encour
aged to make an endeavor to give the
market the kind of product it demands
pure milk from health herds and milk
that is high in food value.

The funeral of Jay C. Olds was held
this afternoon from the family residence,
683 East Madison street. Rev. T. L.
Eliot officiating. Final services were
held in Riverview cemetery. A largo
number of prominent citizens and family-1
friends were present.
Mr. Olds was born in Yamhill county
in 1854 and .was one of the oldest mer
chants engaged in the crockery and
housef urnishing business in the state.
His business was a part of the Olds.
Wortman & King department store. He
is survived by a widow, Mrs. Bessie It.
Olds, and a daughter. Mrs. Lloyd V.
Grey, and was a brother of W. P. Olds, j
Mrs. Mary L. South worth, Mrs. Clara
Summers and Mrs. C. W. King. Mr.
Olds was a thirty-second degree Mason,
and many of his Masonic associates at
tended the funeral.
the state land board on December 26.
Two days later, December 28, 1900. the
assignment, -which had been signed in
blank by Segur when he signed the ap
plication to purchase, was filed with the
state land board. The assignee was
John E. Wheeler, now publisher of the
Portland Telegram. '
On November 28, 1906, John E. Wheel
er was given a deed by the state to the
Scgur land. In the meantime the Blue
Mountain reserve had been established
by the ' proclamation of . the president,
the Segur land was within its boundar
ies, and, being school land, was capa
ble of being used as "bas4" in exchange
for an equal acreage of heavily timbered
land in possession of the United States
Fraadalest, Said Grand Jary
The Segur application was one of the
applications which the Marlon county :
grand jury had reported upon as f raudu- j
lent in its report of April 28, 1905. It
was one of the applications which was
protested as fraudulent by Governor
Chamberlain at the meeting of the state
land board on November 27, 1906, the
day before the deed was finally Issued
The Segur claim was one in the list
which went to make up the 500,000 acres
which the grand Jury said had, been
initiated through false and fraudulent
applications. It is a fair illustration
of the manner in which state school
lands Were taken away from public
ownership and passed into the owner
ship of timbei men and speculators,
and out of which immense fortunes- have
been buiided, while the irreducible school
fund; of the state remains poor.
State May Yet Recover Losses
It is believed that the courts would
give theses lands, so acquired, back to
the ownership of the public if the duly
constituted machinery of the state gov
ernment were to be put into motion for
their recovery. Such a recovery would
mean hundreds Of thousands of added
dollars towards tile maintenance of the
public schools of the state. It would
make it possible to pay higher wages
to competent teachers without an in
crease in the tax burden.
Attorney General Brown, through his
.successful prosecution of tb Hyde-Ben
son cases, will, when those cases have
been finally closed, have put 8725,000
back into the school fund. He recov
ered, or will recover, only about 35,000
aeres 01 school land. . There are yet
many times that number of acres which,
lawyers ay are subject to recovery by
proper legal procedure by the officials
of the state. -
