(jg) Leonard Eiserer, USNR Associate Editor: Orville Campbell, Y3c By Chaplain George J. Grewenow Chaplain Corps, USNR “Sky-Pilot”—^frequently applied to the civilian minister, and more frequently to the chaplain—has an added meaning for the Chaplain coming aboard the U. S. Navy Pre- Flight School at Chapel Hill. Here he is at once aware of an intense pro gram designed to fit the cadet for the air. At the same time a Chaplain coming aboard is aware that the “air-minded” men are not lay ing aside thoughts that are fixed on “the things which are above.” To be “Sky-Pilot” in such a program is counted a very real privilege. To be the bearer of a “heavenly treasure in earthen vessel”—to be spiritual counsellor with sturdy men,—to be the friend in need and in deed is a responsibility and a privilege most welcome to a Chaplain. It is the earnest desire of any Chaplain to serve his best in whatever capacity he is called upon to serve. The sincere and cordial welcome extended me when coming aboard has been a most gratifying factor in my new assignment. I look forward with a great deal of pleasure in serving the men and performing my as signed duties. I am constrained to express my sincere ap preciation to Chaplain Arendt for his genuine helpfulness in getting this fledgling off the ground and away. Surely you men join me in wishing him a happy tour and God’s con tinued blessing. Enlisted Men Advanced Eleven elisted men recently received ad vancements in rating. They were: C. F.

The Story of Dr. Wassell by James Hil ton. Little, Brown and Company, Boston 1943. 158 pp. $1.50. The quiet heroism of an American Naval doctor who assumed responsibility for the care and evacuation of suffering men of the fleet from “Japanese infiltrated” Java is the theme simply but graphically sketched by the creator of Mr. Chips, Lost Horizon, and Random Harvest. The tale is true. Its chief character won a tribute from President Roosevelt. Only the names are fictionized. Hilton met “Dr. Wassell” in July, 1942, in terviewed men from the USS Marblehead who were served by him, and in addition visited the doctor’s home town in Arkansas to gain a background for the study of this man. Generosity, tolerance, wisdom and courage together with a deep comprehension of human nature are found in “Dr. Wassell.” The Navy ordered him to perform a duty. Faithfully, he justified that trust, and in the face of diffi culties that seemed insuperable, he brought his men in safety to the continent “down un der.” The Navy Cross was his unexpected reward, but more than that he cherished the comments of the men who knew their lives were spared through his efforts. Like all of Hilton’s books, this one is swiftly readable; the picture is drawn, flashed clearly, and withdrawn, but not without leaving a happy philosophy and an enrichment of faith. —Lieut. Ray C.
