The purpose of "Class 1 Week" Is to correct errors In classification that may have been made previously. In correcting these errors, many regis trants previously placedin lower clas sifications will be transferred to Closi 1. At the same time, the re-classification will work both ways. Where the evidence justifies local boards will re-open the cases of men wrong fully placed in Class and place them In lower classifications, as the cir cumstances warrant. Government Appeal agents and members of legjnl advisory boards have been directed immediately to make careful examination of all ques-j tlonnatres and record in all cases In j which they are satisfied that re-classification should ho made. Thous ands of registrants are now In Chits 4, the War Department believes, who should be In Class 2 or Class 1. "Local boards, government r.ppeal agents and members of legal advis ory boards," Captain Culllson's in structions advise, "are requested to direct special attention to the fol lowing clusses of enses: Class 2, A aiid 11; Class 3, A, B, and C; Class 4 A." For the benefit of all these defini tions are given: Class 2-A: Married man with children or father of motherless children where wife and Children nre not mainly dependent on liliu for support; 2-B: married man withoutc hildren whose wife is capable of supporting herself; 3-A: Man with dependent children (not his own) but toward whom he stands In relation of parent; 3-B: man with dependent, aged or infirm parents; 3-C: man with dependent helpless brothers of sisters; 4-A; rvn whose wtfe or children are mainly depend ent on 111 i lr. boi for Mipport. New standards of physical ex amination are being issued by the Provost Marshal General. These will It Is believed, not merely add to the number of men eligible for military service hut will largely Increase the roster of those held for limited or speclul service. In a one sided and uninteresting game the McCormlck team defeated the Columbia Shipbuilding team by the score of 15 to 0. The home team garners 14 hits off the delivery of several youths who occupied the box while the best the visitors could ob tain from Harstad was two singles. The game, so far as the visiting team was concerned, aboundej in errorB, miscues, overthrows and In everything elBe which would Bhow a lack of knowing how to play base ball, and the nearest any visiting runner got to home base was to .each second. Expecting an uninteresting contest many of the fans stayed at home and since the visiting team brought no ro ters with them, not more than 400 people witnessed the game. In the second inning the McCor mlck team batted all the way around and probably could still be batting if they hadn't become tired. The Score: Innings 123 4 5 6789 R H E McCormick 27101040 15 14 3 Columbia 000000000 0 2 11 Batteries: McCormick Hf.rstad and Pike; Columbia. Thompson, Matilda; Cllcklnger, Harper. The first half of the season closed with McCormlcks occupying second place with a percentage of 778, hav ing won seven games and lost two. Foundation and Grant Smith Porter are ties for first place with a per centage of 800. St. Helens fans hoped that the postponed Standifer Ciarkson game could be played and won, thus putting St. Helens in first place, but the directors of 'the league decided that inasmuch as two ineli gible players, Mino and Ott, bad been used by McCormick in & recent game, they were not entitled to play the postponed game. Next Sunday the second halt of the season will be opened and McCor mlcks will have as their opponents the Supple-Balin team. CONTRACT IS LET FOR NEHALEM BRIDGE Will Span Nehalem Kiver in IiOtver Valley On Friday last, the county court let a contract for the construction of a -bridge to span the Nehalem river about 1 V4 miles above Birkenfeld. The building of the bridge will at 'ord an outlet to the highway to the Pishliiv.k neighborhood people and at the same time, allow the county to vacate about 1 miles of road which would soon have had to be re paired or rebuilt. The bridge and trestle is several hundred feet lcr.c. There will be a 90-foot steel spun across the river and the balance of the structure will be wood. The county will furnish all materials and J. B. Handley will do the woodwork and pile driving. The steel span is to be furnished and erected by the Coast Bridge Co. They had a 90-foot steel span for which they had no call and offered it to the county for $1500, which is about $700 under the market price today. They also agree to put the span in place for an additional $300. Hand ley's bid for the work he Is to do was around $4,000. SUMMER TRAINING CAMP AT U. OF O. The St. Helens Home Guard had a very successful drill last Monday night, a large number of men turning out.

The cost of the four weeks encampment will be confined to one's own personal expenses and should be less than $40. Colonel John Leader is to have charge of the en campment and the Instructions.
