Tho food price committee original
ly named Chicago as the place at
which tho basic price ot $2 should

from tho northwest has caused only
a smalt quantity of northwest wheat
to go to Chicago and the law makers
want next year's price to apply at
tho "principal market places" of the
country, designating northwestern
points among these.

Registrants Warned Not v
To Give False Answers
PORTLAND, Dec. 19. (Special.)
Every draft registrant must answer
his questionnaire truthfully and with
out evasion. Untrue answers or con
coalmont of information required by
tho government will result In prose
cution. On tho other hand, draft regis
trants may rest assured that the per
sonal questions they aro obliged to
answer in regard to their domestic
and business conditions wilt be seen
only by tha proper authorities. Mem
bers ot local aud district boards aro
forbidden under sovero penalty from
divulging such Information.
Tho government requires tho most
porsonal and detailed answors In the
questionnaire because on tho Infor
mation thus given, supported where
necessary by affidavits ot other per
sons, will bo based tho classification
ot each registrant.
As a detorrcd classification is
equivalent to a temporary exemption
or discharge, It must bo plain to ov
ory registrant why theso false an
swors,' designed to place tho regis
trant In ouo ot the deforred classes,
will bo so strictly dealt with.
In this connection an official warn
ing that Bhould bo carotully noted by
ovory draft registrant has Just beon
Issued by Clarence L. Renmes, United
States Attorney for Oregon. This
"In connection with tho filling out
ot thq questionnaires, word has been
rocolve'd from tho attorney igonoral to
prosocuto vigorously thoso who make
statomonts therein that aro false.
THREE MATTERS COME
UP FOR VOTE.
DccTBiner 28 DaUJ Ht Of ficUU Us
decided How to Arrange- Length
of Terra Under tho Now
(From Wednesday's Dally.)
Notices wore posted yesterday call
ing for a city election to be hold Da-
comber 28 for tho purpose of voUbk ,
on three special matters which must
bo decided this year., They aro thn
tax levy of $25,000, the amendment
needed for the city charter fn order
to mako Its election dates conform
with those In the state constitution
and tho measure which would nsa.Ua
tho Bancroft act effective In Bend. - -.
Tho mala question, which is puz
zling tho men who are preparing tho
ballots Is Just what Is to bo done la
order to prevent the terms of all
motnbers ot the city council from ex
piring at one time. By an act ot the
stato legislature recently tho consti
tution was amended so that It M
eluded a provision that all city and
stato elections are to be held on con
current dates every two years. In
stoad of the regular December elec
tion for thlo year, this pieant that
Bend would not have ono until 1918.
It has been the custom to elect throo
councilmon annually to serve for two
years. This leaves three councllmen
over each year who are thoroughly
acquainted with tho city business.
Three were to have been electcaVthls
December and three next year. Now,
according to tho new legislation, the
terms of all expire next year. Tho
problem which tho present council
faces Is whether to provide tor tho
election ot halt ot the aldermen four
years hence and the other half In two
years or to make them all new at one
Tho polling place for the election
will bo at tho hose houso on Minne
sota street and Lava Road. E. D.
Gilson, W. Ferguson and J. F. Ar
nold will be Judges of the board and
O. C. Henklo and Ashley Forrest,
"In view ot the tact that false
statements In support ot claims for
oxemptlon or deferred classification
constitute a gravo menace to tho fair
and equitable entorcoment ot con
scription, we have beon requested to
give wide publicity to tho fact that
such materia) (also statomonts, evea
when the tacts have been distorted
only slightly, will be promptly pros
ecuted. "Attention should be further di
rected to the (act that all exemptions
and discharges made prior to noon on
December 15 will thereafter have no
validity, and to the fact that every
person who has registered and Is not
yet in military service is required to
till out a questionnaire.
"This must be sworn to and Is in
tended as a complete Inventory of his
domestic condition and Industrial and
"Tho punishment provided for
thoso who tail to return the ques
tionnaire, or to appear tor physical
examination, or to report change .of
status, permits Imprisonment tor one
Even though a registrant is per
fectly sure he understands all that is
required In tho questionnaire, tor lila
own protection he should consult one
ot tho members ot tha varlousflejfal
advisory boards tor advice. This le
gal advice Is freo. ''
Questionnaires are now being sent
out by local boards at the rate of, five
per cent each, day, oxcept Sunitays
and Ic&al holidays, until tboy'ara
all sont out.
