HOW 10 DODGE IT
Men intending to claim exemption
or discharge from the draft by reason
of their employment in certain neces
sary industries, including agriculture,
must bear in mind that such claims
cannot be made to the local county
These local boards are strictly for
bidden, under the war department
regulations, from considering or even
receiving such claims.
Instead, lcaims for exemption or
discharge on industrial grounds must
be presented to one of the district
boards in the state. In Oregon there
are three dustrict boards, one at Port
land, one at Eugene and one at La-
Moreover, these claims cannot be
presented to the district board until
after the man drafted has been called
before the local exemption board, has
passed his physical examination and
has been certified by the local board
as one who has been called for service
and not exempted or discharged.
It is very important to remember
this procedure, if you plan to ask for
discharge on industrial grounds. To
Remember, first, you cannot make
such a claim until you have actually
teen called up for draft.
And second, you cannot make it
then until the local board has finished
with you, has certified you and posted
your name as called for service, and
not exempted or discharged.
Third, and very important, you
must then file your claim, not with the
local board, but with the district
board of the district in which you
are situated. You must file this claim,
on a blank form you may obtain by
application from the local board,
within five days of the certifying and
posting of your name by the local
File your claim with one of the
following three district boards under
whose jurisdiction you are registered:
District Board No. 1, at Portland,
comprises three counties:
mah (outside of Portland), City of
Portland, Clatsop, Tillamook, Yam
hill, Washington, Marion, Jefferson,
Deschutes, Wasco, Hood River, Clack
amas and Columbia.
District Board No. 2, at Eugene,
comprises these counties: Benton,
Coos, Curry, Douglas, Josephine, Lin
coln, Linn, Lake, Lane, Polk, and
District Board No. 3, at LaGrande,
comprises these counties:
Malheur, Grant, Baker, Wallowa, Un
ion, Umatilla, Morrow, Gilliam, Sher
man, Wheeler and Crook.
Finally, remember the seven pen
alties provided by law for false state
ments made for the purpose of seek
ing exemption or discharge.
Every man in Oregon registered

He can learn this by applying to his

As soon as the names of the men
to be called from Oregon on the first
draft are known, the local exemption
board in each county will post a list
of the men drawn from that county.
Only in counties that have already
supplied their full quotas through vol
unteers in the regular army and Na
tional Guard, will this not be done.
The county exemption boards will
also send notification, at the address

What Uncle Sam's Forestry Depart
ment Is Accomplishing.
The gross receipts from the, Na
tional Fo-ests of Oregon, Washington
and Alaska for the fiscal year ending
June 80, 1917, were $644,937.57. This
is $150,000 more than the receipts
for the preceding year.
The members of the Forest Service
in Oregon, Washington and Alaska
are raising a fund to buy an ambu
lance for military use.
Eagle Creek Camp and picnic
grounds on the Oregon National For
est attracted 2200 visitors on July 4.
Forty tourists, traveling under the
auspices of the Massachusetts For
estry Association, are visiting the Na
tional Forests and Parks of the West.
For camp cooking, use a small fire.
It requires less fuel, is easily ap
proached, and can readily be put out
before leaving camp.
Timber sale business on the Nation
al Forests of Oregon, Washington and
Alaska amounted to $450,000 in the
fiscal year 1917.
Big Cheese Shipment.
The local creamery shipped by the
last Elizabeth which sailed from Ban-
don last week 413 cases of cheese to
talling over 27,000 pounds.
the largest individual shipment of
cheese yet made from the plant and
was ednsigned to Los Angeles, Cali
fornia. The shipment was made up
of both cheddar and Jack cheese, there
being 301 cases of the former and
112 cases of the latter.
The market for the cheddar product
at this time is so much better than
that for the Jack cheese that practi
cally all the milk is now being manu
factured into cheddar cheese with a
production of about 19,000 pounds per
day. The receipts of milk are still hold
ing around the two-ton mark though
the season is now well advanced. The
individual shipments are falling off
but several new patrons came to the
company this mui.tk which holds the
total receipts up to the high mark.
The second June payment for whole
milk will be made in a few days, but
the bookkeeper has not yet completed
the figures so cannot announce the
final result. Mr. Conway is expected
over from Marshfield tomorrow and
the final payment for June milk will
then be made.
P. D. McIntosh, of the Coos Bay
Creamery, has made several trips to
the local plant this month and is vir
tually in charge as plant manager
at this time. He is a man of wide ex
perience in cheese making, having
been iL? pioneer in the work in Tilla
mook county, and he hopes to get the
local plant lined up soon so he can
look after both establishments.
Russ Investors Visit Property.
Messrs. Frank Williams and W. F.
Kaussec of Ferndale, California, to
gether with their families spent the
past ten days in the Coquilie valley
looking over the P.uss holdings here
in which they are heavily interested.
The party motored up from California
and have been camped near the C. E.
Schroeder ranch a few miles above
this city. During the time they have
spent here they have viewed nearly
every acre of land owned by the Russ
people and have given the property
more attention than it has had from
the private stockholders in many

THE NAMES OF COOS MEN CALLED
Names of Those Who Are Liable to Conscription From
This County Are Given
The war draft was completed last
week, but as yet the official results
have not been received by the County
Clerk Oddy. As the list of numbers
drawn will be photographed and the
photograph transmitted to the vari
ous units of the United States by
mail it will no doubt be several days
yet before the official list is received.
Below is the list sent out by the As
sociated Press to the Coos Bay Times.
In this list the numbers only were
given, the names being filled in at the
Times office. That errors may have
been made in transmitting the num
bers by telegraph is proven by the
fact that there is a great discrepancy
between this list and that published
in the Record.
Which list is correct
will only be proven by comparison
with the official list when received.
In case Coos county men are con
scripted they will be called in the

Percy Philip, eldest son of County
Commissioner and Mrs. Archie Philip,
was married Saturday afternoon at 4
o’clock in this city to Miss Grace Gib
son, of Bandon.
The ceremony was
performed by Rev. H. M. Law.
The young couple left for Lakeside
where they are visiting with the
groom’s parents until today, Mr. Phil
ip and his family are now on an out-

The groom is a well known young
man of Marshfield.
Lately he has
been working for the Southern Paci
fic. He tried to join the engineering
regiment which is to be sent to
France but the government would not
take him from his present post with
the railroad, as it is regaided that
the railroad men are important to th"
war in their present positions.
Mr. Philip is now stationed at Tim
ber, Ore., and has charge of the round
house there and has six locomotives
to look after. He has a home ready
there for his bride. The couple will
leave Lakeside for Timber today.
The bride is a well known Bandon

ÏHE ROAD CENSUS
The final census of the road work
ers has not yet been completed but
the roadmaster’s office is now busy on
this work and promise a complete
census of all the workmen now en
gaged on road work in the county
within a few days. As a result of the
canvas already made it is estimated
that less than five per cent of the
workmen have ever been engaged in
logging or mill work and this fact
belittles the efforts on the part of the
logging and mill men to have the road
When the census is
completed it will be known whether or
not every man on the road work in
the county has ever been engaged in
timber work, just what his regular
avocation is, what his previous work
has been and his reason, if any exist,
why he docs not wish to work in the
woods or the mills.
This census will cover 15 or 16 road
crews now working, whether for the
county direct or for contractors, and
will take in all the work in the en
tire county. Each crew will be gone
over and a detailed report on each
man employed will be prepared.
It is known that three or four men
are now employed on the Coos City-
Sumner project who were formerly
employed in the mills on the bay but
these men quit their mill jobs at the
time of the strike and found other
employment on the road work.
the north of the bay work practically
all the men employed are farmers who
would not engage in logging or mill
work if the county work was suspend
ed and it is the concensus of opinion
among the people interested that very
few loggers and hut a small percen
tage of mill men would engage in
road work if the mills were shut down
and that, vice versa, very few men
now engaged on road work would go
to the mills or camps for work if the
county should suspend all operations
on the roads.
It is reported that the Davis slough
camp now h«s several men on the ex
tra list and that practically all the
men employed in the camps can make
more money at that work than on the
roads. It is also stated by those who
know, that there are other reasons
than road work for the shortage of
men at the Powers camps, reasons
that have nothing whatever to do with
Another serious point which con
fronts the county in this crisis is the
labor feature. It the county now sus
pends the work as requested by the
mill and logging men serious difficul
ties may follow with the laborers
when it is desired to resume the road
work. To suspend the work now will
throw hundreds of men out of em
ployment who have no other means
of making extra money. Many men
with teams have come into the county
from outside points to secure work.
These men have barely made the ex
pense of coming in now and to let
them out without warning would be a
serious injustice and will give to this
county a black eye on road work that
it will take years to eliminate.
Taken by and large, it is the judg
ment of many men talked with here
that to suspend the road work now
will not only work a serious hard
ship on many individual workmen but
will do untold injury to the county as
a whole when future operations are
taken into consideration.
It is not
the wish of any to handicap the mill
and logging men but it is not
thought that the road work has much
to do with the shortage of men in
the cam os.
Pole Delivery Slow.
The Oregon Power Company's high
power line from Henryville has been
held up the past week because of fail
ure on the part of the contractors to
get the necesary poles delivered. The
poles will come up from Rocky Point
on the lower river tomorrow or next
day and the work of setting them will
immediately proceed. The first three
miles of holes are now ready for the
poles and the right of way has all been
cleared and burned and with the poles
on the ground it will take but a short
time to complete the line. The right
of way follows the county road from
Henryville to the summit and then fol
lows on the west side of the railroad
to Cedar Point where it again comes
on the county road to this city. The
poles will be delivered by the railroad
for the greater part of the line.
Ex-Attorney General Crawford is in
this city shaking hands with old
friends and playmates. This was his
home before his election to that o f
fice and it is hoped that he may return
here permanently in the near future.
