Navy has announced another opportunity for North Carolina youths to serve their country and at the same time prepare themselves for future civil ian work. High school and college students between the ages of 17 and 19, in clusive, can now enlist iiv a new Nav al Reserve group and will not be call to active duty until the comple tion of their current school year If they so desire. The students will enroll in the Navy's V-l class, a general service branch of the reserve, and when they become enrolled, they will not be subject to the draft. Naval authorities have declared the new plan offers opportunities that have never been equalled for students in American schools and colleges. Besides being patriotically enroll ed in the world s hardest fighting navy, each young man who is ac cepted will be furnished food and lodging and initial uniforms while on active duty. Pay will start with the base amount for seamen and will be increased as the man ad vances in ratings. Enrollment in the class also offers youths the opportunity of obtaining free $1,500 worth of training in any of 45 trades or vocations. A physical fitness program will develop health ier men. The periods of enrollment are two, three or four years, but those enlist ing will be required to serve only throughout the duration of the war.

X * In Dardeits Sunday Mr. and Mrs. Eustace Jones, of Ev erett*, visited Mrs. Jones' parents in Dardens Sunday IN MEMORY Alfred, by darling boy, We all have missed you so; Since God called you from us, Just one year ago. The nights have been so long; The days seem so dreary, And many a time my pillow Is wet with bitter tears. Sometimes I'm made to wonder, And wish that I might know, In the very bloom of life, Why it was, you had to go. God must have had a purpose, In His wonderful plan; And some sweet day, my boy, We all will understand. When his little children Stand around my knees; I look at them with pity, And his face, in them, I see. Then I remember the promise, In God's own Holy Word; That's He's a father to the fatherless. And He feeds the little birds. Oh. what wonderful promises, What blessings they impart; How they seem to soothe and heal Our sad and broken hearts. I'll put my trust in God, Who doeth all things well; And look forward to the day. When there'll be no sad farewell. There'll be no tears in Heaven, God will wipe them from our eyes; All will be joy and gladness, In our home beyond the skies. By his mother, Mrs. A. D. Griffin, and Sister, Mrs. Heber Peele.
