C. B. Neely, Navy re cruiting chief for the] State; The Navy Department has announced the relax ing of routine Navy recru iting regulations fori June 7, so that an unlmited number of men can be ac cepted and enlisted on the spot at recruiting sub stations. Under normal procedure, men are accept ed at sub - stations and given transportation to a main station for final exa mination j and enlistment. But for this half-year an niversary of one of his tory’s most treacherous acts, recruits will be enlist ed on'the basis of sub-sta tion physical and mental examinations. “Men will be examined and enlisted at Raleigh or any of the sub-stations in North Carolina up till the actual hour set for the en listment ceremonies,” as serted Lieutenant Neely. “A commissioned officer of at least the rank of lieu tenant (junior grade) will be at Asheville, Charlotte, Greensboro, Salisbury, New Bern, and Wilming ton —where normally a non-commissioned officer is in charge—to administer the oath of enlistment ” North Carolina has al ways led the nation in fur nishing men for the Navy in war or in peace, the re cruiting officer said. “June 7 will be an especially dra matic and significant time for the Old North State, whose sons are constant examples of courage and patriotism, ■" to again lead the United States in fur nishing x men to help the Navy defeat the Japanese aggressors. I am sure North Carolina will res pond to America’s call since Tar Heelia was one of the 13 original states.” THE YANCEY RECORD ' jft - “DEDICATED TO THE PROGRESS OF VANCEY COUNTY” SUB.
