DESERTED BY HIS OLD ROTENT Riley’s Command Sails While He Is Away on Leave Fhis Bird Criticises Yeowomen’s Rifle Fire Corporal Daniel E. Riley of Malden, who has a wife and two'children living at 124 Emerald‘strert, Malden, has been deserted by his regiment and the result is that he doe.sn’t know exactly where he fits with Uncle Sam. It happened this way: Riley was given a leave of absence from Headquarters Company of the ------ United States Infantry, then stationed at Camp Upton, N. Y., and when he returned a't the expiration of his leave of absence he was informed that his outfit had broken camp and sailed for overseas without consulting him, or even leaving any woi;d for him. IS NOW A “CASUAL” Riley was not provided with food rations or a place to sleep officially, but because he was known there he was allowed to remain. He asked the officer at the camp what his standing was and was Inrformed that he was not assigned there and had no official standing. The officers told him he waa a “casual.” The corporal Is now back In Malden and is endeavoring to get his affairs with the government straightened out. He appealed to the Division 1 Exemption Board yesterday to help unravel the red tape. When called In the draft Riley neglected to apply for exemption and was Inducted into service. Hfe was sent to Camp Devens. Affidavits were later prepared by Judge Uharles M. Bruce of the exemption board, but no word has been heard from the papers. From Camp Devens Riley was sent with his outfit to Camp Gordon, Georgia, where he was made a corporal In the S28th Infantry.* Later he was sent to Camp Upton. , Riley Is worried, for he fears that#hls regiment may consi.ler him a deserter. Anyway, he wants to have the matter straightened out.
