Hereafter, departing drafted men, troops here on furlough and all men In the service of Uncle Sam who chance to be in Pendleton for a few hours or days are to be given the recognition and entertainment their due. All are to be extended the pri vileges of the Commercial and Elk clubs and each group of men called under the selective service law will be given a smoker before departure for training camps. These things were provided for at the meeting of the Commercial -Asso elation last evening upon the recom mendatlon of the executive board of the Umatilla County Patriotic Service League. Roy Raley, speaking for the board, called attention to Pendleton and Umatilla county's delinquency in the matter of entertaining men called for service. Such recognition as has been given has been more or less spas modic and unorganized, he stated while some groups had been permit ted to go without being noticed by the public. He blamed this oversight not to indifference but to the failure of anyone to take the lead. Upon his motion the association voted enthusiastically to grant the privileges of the club rooms to all men in Class 1 after they are called, to all men In the service who may be here on furlough or stationed here anf the carrying' out of the motion wan left In the hands of the entertain ment committees of the Commercial Association and Elks' Club. Judge Phelps, speaking for the Elks, de clared the Hodge was in full sympathy with the move. A second motion left to the enter tainment committee of the Commer cial Association the matter of pro viding a smoker and entertainment for each group of drafted boys prior to their departure. A third motion left in the committee's hands the mat. ter of giving a sendoff to Pendleton's first yeomanettes .one of whom is leaving today Educational Meeting Planned. The patriotic service league, co-operating with the draft board, is mak ing arrangements for a meeting for all men In Class 1 at an early day for the purpose of giving them informa tion which will prepare them for the duties ahead of them. The meeting will be for them exclusively and will probably toe addressed by an attorney who will instruct the men in the mat ter of Insurance, in their civil rights etc., by a doctor who will talk along 'the lines of social hygiene, by a mili tary man who will prepare the men for life at army cantonments and by a home guard officer who will offer preliminary Instruction. - MOVE "EMPTV POCKETS'- A MYSTERY STORY Alta Tuesday and Wednesday. . ' Herbert Brenon's . presentation of "Empty Pockets." Rupert Hughes best seller, is a mystery story of New York's slums and 'palaces. As in the novel,0Mr. I'.renon Intro duces the mysterious strands of hair "from some copper-haired worn an" right at the start of the film and keeps everybody guessing which of five copper-headed beauties com mitted the murder until he relieves the suspense near the finish of the film. It is a masterly piece of "sus pended Interest" handling. " The ladles involved move in widely separated social circles: Muriel Schuyler (Barbara Castleton), a bank ers daughter; Maryla Sokaleka (Ketty Galanta), a Jewish sweat shop work er; Red Ida Ganley (Susan Wllla) pickpocket and wife or an east side gunman; Pet Bettany (Peggy Betts, who lives by her wits and Aphra Shaler .who cries money out of men's Bocketbooks. Malcolm Williams, who as Perry Merlthew "plays dead" during the en tire story, declares he can no longer pass a red-headed girl on the street without thinking of not a white horse gut whether she was the girl who did him to death In "Empty Pockets." It must be awful to be haunted by such a thought In a town full of charming copper haired dam sels. Alia Tuesday and Wednesday. PaM.'aie Totlay Indian on top of mountain prevents motion picture heroine's escape by thrilling method. A thrilling climax is promised in the second episode of "Vengeance and the Woman," the Greater Vllagraph serial which will be seen at the Pas time theater today- Driving for her life down a canyon whose walls arise sheer for one hundred feet on either side, a girl is caught In the nose of a lariat thrown with amazing power and ac curacy by an Indian crouched on the top of one of the canyon walls. She Is snatched from the saddle and hurled violently against the sides of the cliff. The Indian starts to haul her to the top of the cliff and has drawn her some thirty feet when Black Jack and Red Johnson, outlaw leaders, ride into the canyon. The girl is lowered and the bandits place her on a horse and ride with her to their rendezvous in a wild mountain pass. Feats with modern weapons are so common as to be common place, but skill with the primitive weapons of the red men always thrill. Commanche Pete's feat in lasoolng Carol Hallo way from her horse and hauling her up into space, at the behest of a bandit chief is just one of the "thrillers" which make "Vengeance and the Woman," the most wonderfully absorb ing melodrama serial ever ' screened.

Oregon," and on separate paper give as much as pos sible of the above information which is to be typed on the Index cards. Nearly Ninety Per Cent Volunteers. So far there have 333 men of draft age gone Into service from this coun ty. 294 of whom have volunteered. Besides this number are many others under and over the draft age limits wha have volunteered but -whose names are not given in any official list In Pendleton. It Is especially ne cessary therefore that relatives of these enlisted men furnish the library with the Information needed to make the files gomplete- It Is desirable that a large propor tion of this material be collected this reek. The "Do It, Now" slogan would vcompllsh splendid results. The generous part that Umatilla county la taking In the great worm war should certainly be recorded for historical purposes and the County Library makes this beginning In pre serving photographs and records.

Ga ' The farms of this country could carry the war to a victorious con clusion even if all the rest of the na tions should quit. The rest will not quit; but we could win it without them It we bad to do, it. The farmers of the United States can whip Ger many. We can whip them with guns. We can whip them with oar products. We can whip them with our money. Every farmer in the United States must remember that the war has a first mortgage bn every cent he has. The last spare cent In the pockets of every farmer in America should be devoted to the war. The Kaiser began foreclosing his mortgage on eur farms when he de clared ruthless submarine warfare. The war is our answer to his bill of foreclosure. Our contribution Is, first, our sons and brothers for the trenches; sec ond, the last pound of, food products which we can grow by mobilizing our scanty labor supply, utilizing the men, women and children and the towns people about ns; and third, money for Liberty Bonds. This Is the crucial year of the war. Our soldiers are at the front, hun dreds of thousands of them In the trenches, and a million more ready to go. The whole burden of carrying on our own part in the war, and of aid ing our sister nations in arms, rests on the United States Treasury. If the treasury fails or falters or finds Itself unable to respond to every call upon it, the war ia lost. Do you realize that? Tour son, and all the nation's sons are relying on the United 8tates Treasury to furnish things with which they may fight. Their lives are lost if the treasury fails. Our country is lost if the treas ury falls. Germany wins if the treasury fails. Therefore every cent you can rake and scrape - together belongs to the treasury, that our soldiers may come back to us alive and victorious. This Is literally true. We can whip the Germans with our money; but not with the money in our pockets or bank accounts. It must go into the United States Treasury in subscrip tions to Liberty Bonds. While Gerard was our ambassador in Berlin, the Kaiser said to him one day that he would stand no nonsense from America after the war. Do you know what that means? It means that the Germans intend to subjugate this country if they come out of this war victorious. The German Imperial government has preached the superiority of Ger many to all the rest of the world un til the German nation is drunk with megalomania. One of their great writers expressed the prevailing, . of ficial view in 1903, when be wrote: "The Teutonic race Is called upon to circle the earth with Its rule, to ex ploit the treasures of nature and of human power, and to make the pas sive races servient elements in its cultural development Who ever has the characteristics of the Teutonic race is superior. All tha dark peoples are mentally Inferior, be cause they belong to the passive races. The cultural value of a cation Is measured by the quantity of Teu- tonlsm It contains." Are you one of the darker races? Are you willing to be rated as one of the 'servient elements" In Ger many's cultural development? You began to be one of tha "servi ent elements' when peaceful people were slaughtered as they carried your produce to market Was It because yon belonged to a "passive race?" This war is for the purpose of say ing to that Insane claim, with the roar of a hundred thousand cannon "NO!" Never since the Turks threatened to overwhelm Europe was the world in such danger as now. Germany must be defeated this year. Unless we win, our place in the world is : lost, and our history as one of the "servient elements" begins. We must withhold nothing from the support of tha war. We must give our sons. We must bring forth food in abundance. We must give into the treasury of the Uni led States every cent we can spare. This summer the support of the war Is np to the farmers: and Uncle Sam has never called upon the farmers La vain! OH BOY! OH JOY!
