The reorganization Of the Regular
Army Reserve, authorized
by the present Congress, has been
sought by the War Department
for many years and the enactj
ment of this legislation is considered
a very important addition
to the National Defense Act.
The Regular Army Reserve is

married men under 36 years ol
n age at time of enrollment and
who have served at least one
j year continuously in the Regulai
e Army and have been honorablj
e discharged therefrom within the
last three years. Enlistments ir
the Regular Army Reserve wil
be voluntary and will be for s
period of 4 years.
The Reservist will receive $24
I per year, payable in installments
for each 4 month period comd
mencing with date of enlistment
While serving in the Reserve, a
' member may be ordered to active
duty only in case of an emerb

^ an emergency occur, the Reservist
will be furnished transportstion

o
Semi-annual pension checks for k
widows of Confederate Veterans t
arrived here Monday morning, li
and one noticeable change in this s
payment is the increase in the 1
number of Class "A" widows. f
Only two of the four recipients
of class "A" payments in 1
December arc still living, but c
eleven of the seventeen checks ^
received this week by B. J. Hoi- s
den, clerk of Superior Court, for 1
distribution were for members of e
this group.
This change resulted from a ''
more liberal interpretation by the
attorney general of the meaning *
of the term totally disabled. For
merly it was taken literally, and -
j class "A" payment of S150.00
twice annually went only to widows
who were hopelessly bedridden
or who were blind. This time
the checks are for any widows
who are physically unable to
take care of themselves and to
perform their usual daily duties.
Class "B" payments are for widows
who apparently are in good
health. Members of this group
receive $50.00 twice each year.
Class "A" widows were: Mrs.
R. E. Vereen, Mrs. H. V. Cox,
| Mrs. Fannie G. Davis, Mrs. Alice
W. McKeithan, Mrs. Mary E.
Mitchell, Mrs. Annie L. Morgan,

. serving his full 30 years in the ^

has no living: relatives, so far''

i years he has elected to live alone
I: in a small house near the railroad *
( station. There he does his own J
housework and spends the reI

rill be mounted, together with
