another seven days in order to put Omaha where it belongs - at the top. The Navy will
never close for enlistments, but do not wait. Help make this a banner week. Young men
in high school, college or university can enroll in the U. S. Naval Reserves for future Naval
officer material and continue their studies until they have graduated. Scores of young men
have taken advantage of this wonderful, opportunity during the last week. You can do the
same by presenting a statement from your school showing that you are in attendance. You
may be called for a summer training in seamanship, boat sailing, machine gun and rifle
practice, and .drilling, if there is room for you at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station.
,Then you will be allowed'to return ta your studies. You will not be called to active war duty
so long as you continue , your school work, except in case of exceptionally great national
emergency, which is not expected. If you are under 21 you should have proof of when and
where you were born, such as a sworn statement signed by one of your parents. If you are
in the draft you must have a release from your local board.

or Marines. You are needed and wanted by all three.
You will find each open and above board, telling you
the straight facts regarding the service in the one repre
