Referring to tho Italian front situa

mission that he will bo accepted. All
branches of the American army serv
ice had turned him down.
Kilos is six feet tall and weighs 320
pounds, and the American commissary
department considered it too great a
rink to guarantee to provide him uni
forms and shoes. Niles tried tho
various branches ono by one. When ho

was too much for him, and he wroto
the British mission.
Nilos lives in Hood Eiver, Oregon.
Glen C. Niles is well known in Salem
having been associated for about eight
years with the Capital National Bank.
He was also prominent in Mnmnln
circles. Last December he left for

It was but a few weeks ago that Mr.
Niles wrote J. E. Adams, navy recruit

to how ho could get into tho army or
navy. Mr. Alums referred him to tho
Portland naval officers and from tho
above dispatch, it is evident he did not
come within the navy regulations.

severnl Red Cross workers and within
few minutes Mr. Gahlsdorf had secur
ed five milk cans of ten gallons each
ana the coffee was in the making,
. ' By th time the troop train arrived
in Salem, the 50 gallons of hot coffee
was ready and a number of the women
Red Cross workers on hand as the tele
gram did not state whether or not the
coffee was t6 be served. It just so hap
pened that all that . was waited was
the hot coffee and this was put aboard
the train while the 508 Montana men
stretched their limbs in a few minutes
-juiok drilling. ...

Although no action has as yet been
taken by the food administration for the
stato in naming a price for this year's
crop of prunes that will be satisfactory
to the federal food administration, the
chances are tliat.the price named by
California will bo acceptable to both
the grower and the food administration.
This was a base price of 8'4 cents. At
one time it was thought that the Ore
gon growers would attempt to place a
rather high price on their prune crop,
but with California naming the 8 cent
price1, and the prospects of an nriusually
large price, the probabilities are that
growers will be moTe than glad to line
up with California. The price has not as
yet been officially fixed and will not
