NAVY RECRUITING OFFIGER PRESENTS , APPLICANT WITH NEW “BADGE 0F IHIINOII” #0 paper’s Navy Editor. _/ SUPERINTENDENT LOOP TELLS OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNG v MEN IN UNITED STATES NAVY Since Secretary Knox announ- ced the enlistment drive for Un- cle Sam's new Two—Ocean Navy several weeks ago, many young men have asked if they were eligible to enlist without a high school education. School Superintendent H. E.‘ Loop answers this important ques- tion for the young men of Shel- ton. “Navyv‘enlistees do not have to be high school graduates," said Superintendent Loop. “Any am- bitious and patriotic young fol- low Who wants to serve his coun- try has that opportunity now by joining the United States Navy or Naval Reserve. Of course, he must be of average intelligence, good characted and be able to pass certain physical and mental examinations. Now, more than ever before, the Navy needs men of that type. “All applicants, whether or notl they have high school diplomas, are given an elementary examina- tion containing about 100. ques- tions,” explaincd Superintendent Loop. ‘.‘Those receiving a grade. of 50 per cent or more satisfy Navy educational standards.” “Naturally, a high school edua cation is helpful in the Navy, just as it is in civilian life,” Super- intendent Loop pointed out. I FORECASTERS TAKE BEATING FROM UPSETS AND TIE GAMES; . JIM HILLIER WINS WITH 15 Those moans of anguish, some soft and some not, are the foot- ball sweepstakes contestants, neighbor. And you’d moan, too, after the dastardly trick the fates of foot- ball played on them last Satur— day, if you were a sweepstakes competitor, or are you? Two tie games, and upsets un— til the cows came home, made the Weekend a pretty sour period for the self-confessed swamis of the third Annual Merchants ‘ Journal football prize scramble. It was sour to all but Jim Hill- ier, for Jim. senior at Irene S. Reed high school, by some amaz- ing feat of crystal gazing, man- aged to pick 15 winners out of last Saturday‘s 20 sweepstakes games and so pockets the weekly $55 check. He missed the two ties—Colgate-Holy Cross and Notre Dame-Army‘ralong with everybody else, and from there stumbled on only three other bat- tles, Columbia’s unlocked-for tri- umph over Cornell, Brown's even more stupifying upset of Yale, and Tulane’s only partly antici- pated victory over Vanderbilt. Jim was all alone in the 15 mass, incidentally the lowest fig- ure at which any of the 1941 week- 1y sweepstakes contests have be segma- Nine others managed I: get 14 right, including Lenita Cheney, By Weilenman, Maurice Stackhouse, Bob Herzog, Jack Stewart, Betty Woods, Rudy. Holmes, Rip Allen and Gene Han-l son. Fifteen more were in the 13! class, but the average pick this week was just about a 50-50 break 'on the 20 games, so great was the carnage of upsets. One con- testant, We’ll mercifully spare identification wound up with five right choices out of the 20 for a new futility record. It almost goes without saying that last Week's scores will be the ones that will be eliminated in computing the best nine of I COMMANDER F. K. O’BRIEN, of the U. S. Navy Recruiting Service, is shown here placing the new Navy “Badge of Honor” on thelapel of an applicant for enlistment in the Navy. (Badge shown above at light.) All ambitious young men who apply for service in Uncle Sam’s “Two-ocean" Navy, whether accepted or not, are given this new badge as a mark of their patriotism.

"He has'i a. wider background to call upon in earning advancement in posi- tion and pay. For example, men who are proficient in English may be sent to one of the Navy’s com- munications or clerical schools.’ Recruits with a knowledge or ap- ‘titpde for handling tools might be marked for trade or engineer-1 ing courses. Men with college educations may qualify for mid- shipmens’ training courses in the Naval Reserve and after their schooling period they will report for active duty as officers with the rating of ensigns. “The Navy has four excellentl trade schools to .which new ‘re- cruits in either the regular Navy or the Naval Reserve may be sent after a training period, pro- viding they pass entrance exam- inations with sufficiently high grades. At these schools they will be trained in any one of near- ly fifty skilled trades or vocations to which their aptitudes suit them and will receive free schooling valued at hundreds of dollars in addition to their regular Navy pay. Such an education is val- uable for advancement in the Navy and in later civilian life,” he concluded. ten weeks in the contest when it comes to settling the three hand- some sweepstakes prizes at theI close of the contest, but it's go- ing to be tough on those who have already missed one week and earli’t take advantake of this de- tai .

Book Week Featured At Library? Displays Center Aroundi Different Types of Literature For Various Reading Tastes ' Book Week is here to pay its rary. Displays calling attention to the presence of Book Week have been arranged by Mrs. Laura K. Plumb, librarian, and her staff and all patrons of the library are urged to come in this week and see them. One table, for instance, features literature on hobbies. On this table is a beautiful wood carving made by an anonomous Mason County man who has fashioned with his pocket knife an unbroken chain and several birds which have been brightly colored. On the same table will be fea- tured a copy of the Stanford Uni- versity annual, Quad, for 1941 which was edited by Charles Run- acres, now auditor for the Olym— pic Plywood plant. The volume is one of the finest college annuals and celebrates the 50th anniver- sary of the founding of Leland Stanford University. Different Types of Displays Other table displays feature children’s books, adult literature, “Know Your Country" reading, selected reading, etc. The latter is mainly junior literary guild books suited to reading according to age and grade in school for children. The juvenile' table features a I .display of the Book Tree Club, annual summer reading club for younger children conducted by the Shelton Library. A large tree with a leaf for every member of the club. and the certificates earned by the Book Tree club members are featured on this table. .A couple of volumes given spe- c1al display in the Book Week ex- hibit at the library are two of Stewart Holbrook’s latest crea- tions, “Tall Timber," a history of the lumbering industry for juv- enile reading and “Murder Out Yonder,” a factual history of rural crimes for adult reading which the author wrote "to give rural crimes their just deserts. I feel that the back country folks use more imagination and a finer sense of drama than most city slickers in committing crimes,” Mr. Hol- brook writes in the fly-leaf intro- duction. The library has been distribut- ing Book Week markers for some time and will continue to do so throughout Book Week as long as the supply lasts, Mrs. Plumb said. The juvenile table with the Book Tree Club exhibit will be kept on display for an additional week or two after the close of Book Week, Mrs. Plumb added. l l GIRL SCOUT TROOP TOURS THRU LIBRARY Members of Girl Scout Troop 2, led by Miss Florence Janssen. were taken on a personally con- ducted tour of the Shelton library last week by Mrs. Laura K.

Sev- erai new features are included in the plans to make Shelton a bright spot on the Christmas mall The job of erecting the deco- rations will again be done by Lewis Mobbs of Olympia, whose work locally the past three years has been highly commended by everyone. New details planned by the com- mittee include the purchase of regular outdoor colored lights to be strung at the intersections. The use of colored lights as part of the town‘s decorating is a new phase in the Christmas promotion. Another change will be through the decorating of the store fronts themselves. In the past the com~ mittee has concerned itself only with erecting decorations along the sidewalks and across the in- tersections, leaving the store fronts for owners to worry about. It was felt by the committee that by decorating the buildings a more uniform effect would be achieved. The committee also pointed out, through Chairman Mark Pickens, that building owners who have strings of colored lights should let Mr. Mobbs know when he starts decorating their buildings as he has promised to include such lights in his decorating scheme at no cost to the prop; rietors. Due to the early action of the trade committee in regard to dec- orations, the job will be completed by December 1. according to Mr. Mobbs‘ schedule. The Retail Trade Committee is found with it on the old highway near the Kimbel Oil warehouse Hallowe’en night for whoever owns it, he said today, made up of Mark Piekens.

October weather statistics sub- mitted yesterday by Observers Walt Eckert at Grapeview and Bernhard Winiecki here at Shel— ton show that: 1. Shelton had two more clear days than Grapeview; 2. Shelton had two-hundredths of an in. less rain than its easterly neighbor. By way of explanation, in or- der, Shelton had two more clear days than Grapeview despite the fact that Shelton had exactly two clear days. Grapeview didn‘t have any, for the first time in its memory, relates Mr. Eckert. And secondly, Shelton had a rain total for the month of 2.76 inches against Grapeview's 2.78 inches, the two monthly reports reveal. Grapeview might turn right around, however, and offset Shel- ton’s two points for chest swell- ing by pointing out that it had warmer temperature extremes than Shelton and also fewer days on which rain fell during the month. By comparison, Shelton's warmest temperature of the month was 69 degrees, reached on the 14th and Grapeview had 70 degrees the same date, while Sheltons coldest reading was 36 degrees on the 20th against 41 degrees as Grapeview’s chilliest on the 29th. Shelton had rain on 13 days, Grapeview eleven; Shelton’s heaviest 24-hour fall, was 0.53 inches on the 10th, Grapevi‘ew's 0.64 inches the same date. As far as Shelton is concerned, the past month was one of the I I The 2.76 inch total is less than half the normal October rain in this area, Weatherman Winiecki's records show. A normal October would bring 5.70 inches, he says. That leaves 1941 with only 33.18 inches of rain in its first ten months, so unless the final two months bring more than 15 in- ches of precipitation a new rec- ord for lack of rain will be es- tablished at the Shelton weather station. The record dry year at present was 1938 when only 48.66 inches of rain fell. The normal annual rain here is 62.25 inches, the Rayonier weather bureau rec- ords say. were drier.

ARIEISTICE DAY OBSERVANCE IS PLANNED HERE Shelton Retail Stores Not Closing This Year; V.F.W. Ball, Le- gion Breakfast, Auxil- iary Ilanl..Dinner, Grid Game Billed Plans for Shelton’s annual cele-_ bration of Armistice Day, which comes next Tuesday, have been include new features this year. . First of the celebratory events will be the 12th annual Veterans of Foreign ‘Wars Armistice Ball, scheduled at Schneiders Prairie for- next Saturday evening. The public is invited. On the big day itself, which is a national holiday, the annual American Legion breakfast will be held in the Shelton Hotel at nine o'clock, with special elevon o’clock services in honor of the war dead. Only Legionnaires are invited to the breakfast. At two o‘clock the annual Arm- istice Day football game between Shelton and Bellarmine high schools will be fought on Loop Field, while in the evening‘ a double-barreled program in which the public is invited to join with war veterans is scheduled. 'First is the annual popular baked ham dinner put on by the American Legion Auxiliary in Memorial Hall, following which ,the Legion post will sponsor a. dance to take the place of the. Armistice Ball it has given for many years past. Shelton retail stores, by a close vote, last week, elected to re- main open this year on Armistice Day, following similar action at Olympia, Tacoma and Seattle. For several years past local stores have closed, although industrial plants here have never observed the; holiday. However, war vet- erans who wished to have gen- erally been permitted to take the day off. Being a national holiday, Arm- istice will be observed by such public institutions as the. bank, postoffice, city hall, courthouse, Iwelfare department, etc., and the day will mean a recess from their studies for school pupils and teach-- ers, too. PAST COMMANDERS NIGHT AT LEGION THIS EVENING Past post leaders will take their annual place in the spotlight this evening when Fred B. Wivell Am- erican Legion Post and auxiliary past commanders and past presi- dents are honored. Immediate Past Commander John Eliason is chairman of the post’s program, which will include a review of the history of Fred B. Wivell post by another past commander, Ed Faubert. Shele , Entertains Lost Flyer From Army How it feels to be lost in an airplane is at least second hand knowledge possessed now by Mr. and Mrs. Howard Fuller and family of Shelton. ' The Fullers entertained Lieut. Vernon Scott of Naples, S. D.,' pilot of one of the P-40 Army fighter planes which became lost in a huge dense fog bank over the Tehachapi Mountains in Cali- fornia last week as they were » proceeding to the Pacific North-' west to participate in the aerial maneuvers which closed last Saturday. Lieut. Scott piloted one of the five planes last to be accounted for among the six which crashed or made forced landings in the fog. Lieut. Scott was unhurt and brought his plane in safely in a forced landing, later pro- ceeding to McChord Field where he was based during the maneu- vers. He is stationed ‘at Windsor Locks, Conn. Lieut. Scott and the Fullers were neighbors in South Dakota several years ago. After return- ing Lieut. Scott to McChord Field Friday, the Fullers enjoyed a trip of inspection which in- new P-40 fighter planes. HOSPITAL EARNS APPROVAL OF A.C.S.
