Here In Pendleton It Is doubtful : :; 1 V ' .P II whether persons In Class One. being those whose Income Is very little in excess -of living expenses, will receive notification of their rating. The C1ass One rating will probably not be rigid, Inasmuch as in this class are persons of varied circumstances, from the widow who washes for a living to the man of ood salary. It Is more p rotiable that persons in this class will be rated from $r0 to Jlf.O or $200 and that some may not bo rated at all. Whether or not notices are sent to these persons, they are expected to present themselves at their bank dur ing H-onor Week and enter their sub scriptions voluntarily.

The St. Mihiel salient Is undoubtedly doomed. The only question Is wheth er the Germans can get out their gar rison In time to prevent Us capture.

The Graphic said: "It is a superb day's work, the effects of which will deepen the gloom fast settling over the Fatherland. The Express said: "Look at the may, St. Mihiel is not far from the German front ier-' The News: "Perplexities of the en emy give fresh proof of the command ing superiority of the allies' lesources and foreshadow the future ceurse of i the war." ! I AMSTERDAM, Sept. 13. Speaking tin a public gathering at Stutgart, Ger man Vice Chancellor Von Payer today ! expressed the belief that Belgium can j be restored without any restriction... "The real ground for depression," he 'said, referring to reports of unrest in Germany, "is our belief that prospects of peace are being increasingly post poned and that tho possibility of war through another winter must be faced by all belligerents. I believe that Bel gium can be restored without indem nity and without restrictions. Who would deny that the co-operation of the Americans against us means a heavy and Increasing burden?" asks Von Payer. "We can not return Po land to Russia," he said.

Xjc- fy f-' V.-' The Pendleton Round-t'p board has gone on record as being opposed to royalty and this year the big show will be conducted as an institution of the common people. At least this Is what may be inferred from the de cision of the board that the e will be no queen of the Round-Up th!s year. This will .be the first t Ime the Round-Up has been without its queen, but this will be no appreciable loss as there will be any number of can didates to prove hemseVves entitled to proclaming themselves fiueen or relay riders, bucking bronchoes. or other stunts that come In the life of the range. 1 TROOP 0 BOYS SAID TO BE IN TERRITORY OF PERSHING DRIVE "Hlacky" Greenwood, who before eti listing in Troop p last year was employed In the Alta theater of Pen dleton, writes his father in Portland, that Capta in Lee t'aldwelt has been uppt inted provost marshal.
