Lend Your Money
As Freely As
They Are Giving
Their Lives
You don’t have to fight, you don't have to die.
Your son does, or your brother who is now across the
way—or the kid now in khaki to whom you used to
give pennies a short time ago.
That money you have laid away for “a rainy day”—
wouldn’t you give every nickle of it to keep a Hun’s
knife away from his throat?
Well, the Hun is here, and so is his knife—and so is
the “rainy day”—it’s raining now, raining bombs and
schrapnel upon our boys “over there.”
June 28th

your neighbor—but you—to pledge yourself to the

District Fire W arden
John W. Ferguson of Portland,
who is well known in this part
of Clackamas County, where he
made his headquarters in former
years, was last week reappointed
fire warden by State Forester

Mr. Ferguson has be e n in
charge of the work for several

lins, aged mother of Ben Raw­

ed a birthday picnic-party at the
Garfield Country Cl ub. One
hundred and five relatives and
friends joined in the festivities,
which included a sumptious din­

following, was wished ma n y
happy returns of the day.

Draft Boards To Correct
Classification Errors
A “Class I Week” is to be held
sometime this month by every
local draft board in Oregon, ac-
cordingto information and orders
from the office of the Adjutant
The purpose of “Glass l Week”
is to correct any errors in classif­
ications that may have been
made previously. In correcting
these errors, many registrants
previously placed in lower class­
ifications will be transferred to
Class 1.
At the same time, the re < ass-
ifications will work both ways.
Where the evidence justifies, lo­
cal boards will re-open the cases
of men wrongfully p l a c e d in
Class I and place them in lower
classifications, as th e circum­
stances warrant.
Government Appeal Ag e nt s
and members of legal advisory
boards have been directed imme­
diately to make a careful examin­
ation of all questionaires and re­
cords in all cases in which they
are satisfied that re-classification
should be made. Thousands of
registrants are now Class IV. the
War Department believes, who
should be in Class II or Class 1.
Appeal agents are instructed to
appeal every case where the re­
classification is not convincingly
New standards of physical ex­
amination are being issued by
the Provost Marshal General.
These will, it is believed, n o t
merely add to the number o f
men eligible for military service
but will largely i n c r e a s e the
roster of those held for limited
or special service.
