We believe the :navy offers the finest opportun- ity any young man could ask for both as a matter of service to his country and to assure a better} future for himself. I. The attention of every citizen.l old and young, is called to these advertisements and stories on navy service. We believe that men and women of mature years will, through reading these mes— sages, see the value to young men of service in the navy. They will see the opportunity not only of rendering a valuable service to their country in this time of emergency but the opportunity to learn a skill or trade that will help them earn a good living dur— ing the remainder of their work- ing days.

However, the local community is given credit in its draft quota for every man who; enlists in the navy, thus its selec-“ tive service quota is reduced ac-I cordingly. Voluntary service in the navy an act of patriotism. Public recognition will be given this fact, by presenting each applicant? whether finally accepted or not, a handsome lapel badge as an “Emblem of Honor."
