War Training Course To
Start Soon At Lincoln
Another new course in war
training is starting November 30
at the University of Nebraska It
will be a day-time course for
eight weeks in aircraft materials
and parts inspection, to be taught
by the College of Engineering
Applicants for the class will
receive two blanks, one for en
rollment, the other for employ-,
ment in the aircraft factory They
can be obtained from Prof. W. L.
DeBaufre, director of war train
ing at the University.
The purpose of this short course
is to train men and women for
inspecting materials and parts of ;
aircraft in aircraft assembly
plants. Jobs haw been promised
by the aircraft industry to all,
who meet conditions for employ
ment and who satisfactorily com
plete the course.
Preference in selecting students
will again be given to women and
older married men with children ■
Applicants must be high school
graduates with a year each in
geometry and algebra. They must
be at least 18 years old and in
sound physical health There is
no upper age limit, and no l ni-,
versity fee will be charged, since
the course cost is borne by the
federal government.
Didn't Have Many Planes
On The Carrier Wasp
‘Bub’ Steele, former ranch hand
in Cherry county, has been spend
ing a furlough in Valentine and
vicinity, and has some interesting
experiences to relate, for he was
on the aircraft carrier Wasp when
it was recently sunk near the Sol
omon islands. He says that it was
impossible to get many of the air
planes off the deck of the W asp
after it was hit by a torpedo, as
the force of the explosion from
below wrecked the undercarri
ages of the planes, which is some
indication of the force of a tor
pedo—Valentine Republican.

Record War Bond Sales Is Goal
Of Women At War Week Nov. 22
WASHINGTON. D. C.—America's women in tfee ci; es and or the firms
—in war factories and in their homes—are determined to make Women At
War Week the greatest War Bond sell mg effort since Pearl Harbor
Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt sounded the keynote for the Treasury Depart
ment's Women At War Week. Nov. 22 to 28. with an appeal t© women to save
on "little things' to pro
vide money for War Bonds.
"We women want to
work hard, we want to be
a part of this strenuous
period because unless we
are. we will not be able to
face the men when they
return and claim our
share of the future respoo
sibility for building a
peaceful world,” the First
Lady declared.
The overall direction of
Women At War Week rests
with the Women's Section
of the War Savings Staff
under the leadership of
Miss Harriet Elliott.
Associate Field Director,
and Mrs. Henry Morgen
thau. Jr.. Chief of the
Special Activities Unit.
From coast to coast
women in every commu
! nity have made plans for

of the one week drive rests with the local War Savings Committee which
has worked out activities adapted to their areas.
Mrs. Morgenthau. in a special message for Women At War Week, de
clared that the spirit of America’* pioneer women lives today more strongly
than ever.
"The average American woman began to rise to new heights on Sunday.
Dec. 7. 1941." Mrs. Morgenthau said. “This winter the average American
woman will be spending less in order to save more to invest in War B c«±s
and Stamps. She will not please God. ever have to fire a gun or fiy *
bomber. But she will, please God. always do everything she can to help
■ buy anything—and the best of everything—that fires or or Boots tn this
terrible war."
