WillJNot Be Allowed
Washington, Aug. 9.- One of the prin
cipul reasons for banning enlistments in
the army and navy, it was loarned to
day, is that tlio introduction in con
gress of th0 18 to 45 draft limit bill
cauw.'d a rush to enlist by thousands of
men, many of whom are holding po
sitions which they should noj, leave.
Tluir belief apparently was that the
g:orninout needed ev.ory man that
could be gotten hold f and they did
nof wish to wait until drafted.
Baker said in discussing the draft
issue .with newspnrvor men after the
meeting that it was probable that the
18 year old class would be placod last
on the list, and would not bo called un
til the older classes wera exhausted,
lie pointed out, however, that tho pow.
er to draw men by classes depending on
their nge wsts with the president. The
18 year old class would register nt tl o
same time ns the older men within the
new draft ago limits.

'Do not accept and forward any ap
plications from your office until fur
ther orders." This was the telegram
received this afternoon by Sergeant
Davis of tho I army recruiting office,
from Col. George S. Young, in charge
of the recruiting district f Oregon.
This confirms this morning's dispatches
to the effect that the war department
had decided to discontinue all enlist
ments until the present draft law has
been passed and the time named for
registration. It is understood this ac
tion was taken to protect the indus
tries throughout the country as it was
feared the present uncertainty as to
future draft laws might cause a gen
eral rush of recruits. As tho order now
stands, no recruits will be accepted
for the regular amy until futher or
des. While the prospects are that dry
goods will not go much higher, the
average housekecjer in Salem should
feel herself fortunate from the fact
that Salem stores aro selling away be-

Women For Highway
Work Is Latest Plan
Wherever possible women will lie
employed on Mghway work in the fu
ture, according to a statement made
today by Stato Highway Engineer
Xunn. Two women already are in the
service of the state in this capacity,
working on the macadam, between Inglis
and Galena on the Columbia River
Highway, end Xnnn asserts that they
are honest, competent and even take
more pride in their work than the
men. These two women assist in sett
ling the macadam by pouring water
Tho orders issued do not moan that
the women are to engage in the heavy
work incident to highway construction,
but they will be used as inspectors, rocK
checkers and on similar light jobs more
fitted to the feminine sex.
In every instance where practicable
and possible the bosses of highway jobs
aro instructed to employ women in
preference to men and it is believed
that a large number will soon be on
the payroll of the commission.
low the market price. For instance,
the wholesale price today of plain
white oilcloth is 33 cents, and the de
livered prico in Salem easily 33 or 3l
cents. The wholesale price today on
standard American calico is 22 cents.
The plain Everett Chambray work
shirt for men that sold retail about
three years ago for 50 cents, today is
quoted in the wholesale markets at $13
a dozen and scarce at that. And even
that old standby Koekford socks, sold
for the past generation at three for a
quarter, now costs the dealer in Salem
IVj cents from the wholesale house.
Tho story runs the same en standard
drygoods and tho fact is, merchants in
Salem are retailing in many instances
at about the present wholesale market

Thct cash drawer of the Koijaan res

'Until furiher orders no moro men
will be enlisted or enrolled in tho navy
or tho U .8 naval reserve force, This
order does not apply to thoso who on
or before Thursday August 8, had filed
application for enlistment or enrollment
or where being examined with a view
of their acceptance. " This telegram
was received this afternoon by J. E.
Adams, navy recruiting officer and is
similar to some extent to the telegram
sent to the army recruiting station.
This has the effect of cutting off all
enlistments for any war service until
further orders, however the following
young men had made application in
time to be accepted for service in the
navy and left this afternoon for San
Francisco: Ralph L. Palmer, Lyle War
ing, David C. Howard, L. A. Culberson

The prune scare seems to be over,
or at least many who were somewhat
alarmed at the reports that the crop
was about all lost after investigation
are convinced that while then has
been considerable dropping in certain
sections, tho crop this year will be al
most a record breaker. From the lack
of moisture and also proper cultivation
prunes in some localities- have been
dropping and showing diseased spots.
However, after investigation, the gen
eral opinion is that the prune crop is
all rinht and that the troubles found
were not a disease but due to lack of I
moisture. From all accounts, it is not
the growers who should do .the worry
ing, but the packers. According to a re
cent order issued by the government,
packers are not permitted to exceed a
profit Of four per cent.
