OVER THE TOP
From Mufti to Khaki.
It wns In an office In Jersey City.
I wns eitting at my desk talking to
a lieutenant of the Jersey National
Guard. On the wall was a big war

little flags showing the position of the
opposing armies on the western front
In France. In front of me on the desk
lay a New. York paper with big flaring

The window were open and a feel

Through the open windows came the
strains of a hurdy-gurdy playing In the
street "I Didn't Raise My Boy to Be
"Lualtanla Sunk I American Live
Lost I" "I Didn't Raise My Buy to
Be a Soldier." To ua these did not
seem to jibe.
The lieutenant In alienee opened one
of the lower drawers of hi desk and
took from It an American flag which
he solemnly draped over th war map
on the wall. Then, turning to me with
a grim fuce, aatd:
"How about It, sergeant? You had
better get out the muster roll of the
Mounted Scouts, a I think they will
be needed In the course of a few daya."
We busied ouraelvea till late In the

Big Day ia Condon -
Saturday was a big dsy In Condon.
The biggest thing waa the fact that
this district was "over the top" by 9
o'clock in subscribing Its quota of the
Liberty Loan. The parade arranged
by the Guard in the afternoon waa very
good. The "Mothers" float was
awarded first prize and L. E. Shelley
with his Uncle Ssm car won second.
The Guard drill and the speeches and
aongs at the reviewing stand were very
good. The fireworks and the hard time
ball were the big events of the evening.
The dance netted the Guard $246.80.
The city council haa decided that
every able-bodied man in Condon or
who may come here must work or
fight. O. K. Baldwin told the council
last week that thia move ia finding
favor in every town and Condon never
haa been behind in auch moves and will
not fail in this one.
Mrs. A. W. Ferguson, who has
been visiting with relatives in
Condon, left Sunday morning for
her home in Vale, Oregon.
who went ARTHUR GUY EMPEY
to his desk. I Immediately followed
this action by throwing the telegrams
Into the wastebasket Then we looked
at each other In silence. He was
squirming In his chair and I felt de
pressed and uneasy.
The telephone rang and I answered
It. It was a business call for me, re
questing my services for an out-of
town assignment. Business was not
very good, ao this was very welcome.
After listening to the proposition I
seemed to be swayed by a peculiarly
strong rorce within me, and answered,
"I am sorry that I cannot accept your
offer, but I am leaving for England
next week," and hung up the receiver.
The lieutenant swung around In his
chair, and stared at me In blank aston
tshment. A sinking sensation came
over me, but I defiantly answered his
look with, "Well, It's bo. I'm going."
And I went.
The trip across was uneventful. I
landed at Tilbury. England, then got
into a string of matchbox cars and
proceeded to London, arrle'.cg there
about 10 p. m. I took a roon , In a hotel
near St. Psncras station for "five and
six fire extra." The room was niluus
the Are, but the "extra" seemed to
keep me warm. That night there was
a Zeppelin raid, but I didn't see much
of it, because the slit in the curtains
was too small and I had no desire to
make It larger. Next morning the tel
cphone bell rang, and someone asked.
"Are you there?" I waa, hardly. Any
way, I learned that the Zepa had re
turned to their fatherland, so I went
out Into the street expecting to see
scenes of awful devastation and a cow

TO GIVE BOYS CHANCE;
TO WORK FOR COUNTRY
During the week commencing
April 15. the United States De
partment of Labor with the co
operation and assistance of' the
National Council of Defense, the
State Council of Defense, the
County School Superintendents
and the Superintendents of City
Schools will conduct a campaign
throughout the state to enroll all
boys between the ages of 16 and
21 years to take care of the com
ing harvest This enrollment is
deemed necessary by the govern
ment because of the draft and
essential industries of the coun
try have made heavy inroads up
on farm labor throughout the
nation, and upon the youths the
country depends for its labor to
harvest the crops.
The Boys' Working Reserve is
not a military organization, nor
an organization in any way de
voted to the training of boys for
military service. All boys be
tween the ages of 16 and 21 years
will be enrolled regardless of
their present occupations, but no
boy will be taken from his job
without his consent
All parents are respectfully re
quested to see that their boys are
enrolled in this working reserve.
The names of the Registrars will
be announced later.

BUSINESS MEN NEEDED;
CANDIDATE FILLS BILL
With the President calling up
on business men to give their
services to the Nation in this
national crisis, many people are
coming to consider a politician
and ordinary office seeker a little
out of place, and to give their
attention to the candidacy of such
young business men as R. N.
Stanfleld, Republican candidate
for1 Republican nomination for
United Sutea Senator.
Mr. Stanfleld is one of the big
gest men the state has produced.
He has big business interests of
his own, .which were built up by
his individual efforts, and in ad
dition thereto, be is familiar with
every phase of Oregon's Indus
trial development For 21 years
he has been a familiar figure in
Eastern Oregon, and during the
past six or ten years has become
known to every section of the
stale, not only for the business
which he has built up, but for bis
interest in state affairs, having
been a member of the Legislature
for, the past six years, and at
present Speaker of the House.
He haa been an aggressive and
tireless worker for all things,
which tend towards improve
ment of conditions or betterment
of communities. Irrigation, good
roads, improved markets, trans
portation facilities have had his
strongest supportboth as private
citizen and a legislator. He has
served on important committees
in the State Legislature, and as
sisted materially in ths framing
and passage of many constructive
cases of legislation.
His campaign has now reached
the stage where it is freely pre
dicted that he will be the nomi
nee. His friends and supporters
are confident that he will carry
Multnomah county, and in addi
tion thereto .will carry the ma
jority of counties of western Ore-

PROPORTION OF BONDS
Gilliam county went over the
top in the Third Liberty Loan on
Saturday morning at 9:01, the
entire quota of 102,00') having '
been fully subscribed at that
time. Since then subscriptions
have been coming into the banks
every day, and it is estimated
that the total subscriptions to
date will equal approximately,
$150,000. After all the subscrip
tions have been made, the com
mittee in charge intends to equal
ize the same so that the quota of
$102,000 shall not be over-subscribed,
or if so, but to a small
extent The idea being to have
everyone who was assessed to
subscribe for the amount which
was allotted to him, and then to
diminish the subscriptions pro
portionately and equitably. It is
quite likely another issue of Lib-''
erty Bonds will be made some
time this fall, and it ia the Inten
tion of the committee that Gilliam .
county shall do its share by sub"
scribing for the amount appor
tioned it, but that nothing la to
be gained by a large over sub
scription, and that it is much:
better to equalize the subscrip
tions to this loan, and that by so
doing the people of the county
will be in a better condition to
subscribe to the next one, if ono
should be mads this ia!!. IV
credit would be given the county;
for the oyer subscription on the
next issue. Gilliam county- La
one of the first, if not the first,
county in the state to go over that
top on thia drive, and the people
of the county are to be commend",
ed and congratulated on the man
ner in which they aubscribed to
this issue. It is conclusive evi-4
dence that the people at Last have
been awakened from their slum
bers, and now realize they are in .
the war to win. and are willing '
to assist the boy a in the trenches.
with their dollars. About
fifty per cent of those who re
ceived notices from the commit
tee have not as yet responded;
but it is hoped they will yet da
so or inform the committee o
their inability to purchase the'
amount allotted them. If they?:
fail, refuse or neglect to either'
purchase the amount assessed,
against them, or inform the com
mittee of their inability to do bo,
and give good and valid reasons
therefor, they will be listed en
the yellow card as slackers. Do
not think that because the entire
quota has been subscribed, that
you are excused from purchasing
your required amount of bonds,
but it is your duty to subscribe
for the amount allotted you, and
then allow the committee to
equalize all the subscriptions so
that no injustice will be done by
compelling BOtne to take the
amount assessed against them,
and allowing others to escape
without making any investment
in these bonds. .
