1 oung men undot the gc of SI years
who would like the advantage of secur
ing military graining and at the same
time continue their regular studies
should Jogp ne time in registering at
Willamette University for the next
coming school year and at the same time
enlist jo tho students army training
jcorp, or the university.
Tho sugegstion is mado by Dr. Carl
j Gregg Douey who explains that the
I government will look with favor on the
jmeu between 18 and 21 years of age who
I will enlist in the students corps. The
situation is that as soon as he is regis
tered for the students army training
corps, he is technically on inactive duty.
In his quest ionairc lie so states that he
i is already in the military service of the
I United States and his local draft board
I will place him in Class 3 D, as provided
i by the selective service regulations. ,
The student will be permitted to re
main in college so long as ho remains a
. member of -the students army training
corps, unless) there is some special em
ergency calling him into the service. If
the young man fails to enroll iu this
;coi'pt, before his registration, his status
will be up to the draft board even if he
! should later cnlisr in the students army
! training corps.
j After graduation from a college, the
president of the college which h0 at
; tends and the military office of that col
lege will recommend that lie be .sent to
an officers' training camp to prepare
him for a commission in what ever sei
vice he is best adapted.
Jlencc for the voung man who ex
pects to attend a college or university
this fall, it will be to his advantage, to
at oucc enroll for the school year and
enlist in tho students army training
corps of the school in which ho at

WHY THE AUTOMOBILE IS

' It is safe to say that there has never
been any factor which has been of more
aid in the development of the rural sco
tiong of the country than the automo
bile," sayF. G. Delano, local dealer is
Chevrolet automobiles, "and it is easy
to see that the motor car is assuimnj
greater importance and becoming moil
indispensable each day.
"One feature of this growing popu
larity of the automobile with the farmer
will certainly be to diminish, almost
to the vanishing point, the many differ
enccs which used to exist between tlu
"city" and the "country.". Mo on
would think of picturincr the farmer of
today as the inferior of his city brnthc;
in worldly goods, intelligence, or ability
to travel. In lealiry, he is quite flic re'
verse: well-posted and well-read and it
must be admitted that the automobile
has been largely responsible for thif,
"Tlie automobile gave him ari eppor
tunity of getting in touch with the sur
rounding country in which he lives, lie
is. able to visit his neighbors oftencr. He
goes to town much more than he used
to. He ig in touch with the outside
world. He is no longer alone.
"It is easy to see what an essential
thing tile automobile is to the man in
the country. It has brought him close
to everything desirable. He is no longer
an isolated outsider.
"But as a matter of fact, the automo
bile is an essential everywhere, in town
or country, in thp city or on the faun.
Its ever increasing popularity proves
this conclusively. And the automobile
is popular because it is useful because
it performs efficiently a mission which
h( fvre its event was unfilled. As a ut
iiiiy.i't hi' rightfully earned its place
in the life HDi affairs of our people.
