" When asked what he thought of the United States Navy, Morris said, "I think every man who is considering joining a military service should look into the ,'chance of a lifetime' which the Navy arid Naval Reserve offer to getinto the big-pay field of the future—aviation. In the Navy you can attend the finest flight training schools in the world, and receive in- struction from Navy pilots who introduced dive bombing, aircraft camera and catapult take-offs to .the rest of the world. Also, there are opportunities in Naval Aviation for men who don't want to fly. They can be trained as aviation machinists, metalsmith's, photographers, observers, or they can receive instruction in many other trades. It's a great life in the Navy." Ensign Wayne Morris is pictured- here in his line of duty as a member of the Naval .Agnation Cadet Selection Board at the Long Beach Naval Reserve Air Base. • Edson in Washington Axis Aliens Doing All Right in Detention Camps it is a bases. simple matter to stamp the plates, even with .

These camps are sometimes erroneously referred to as concentration camps, bringing up visions of the horror places established by the Nazis and Fascists. Ours are nothing of the sort. The men detained in them are not. criminals, but are persons who cannot.be sent out of the country because of the war. One'of these camps is Fort Missoula, three miles from Missoula, Wont. The second is at Fort Lincoln N. D. The service also operates a thirc one at. Fort: Stan ton,' N. M. The Fort Lincoln Camp holds a present about 275 German sailors chiefly off German .boats sabotaged by order from Berlin, The actua saboteurs are criminals and treatec as such. The seamen who had nothing to do with the sabotage are the ones who are sent to Fort Lincoln In addition there are some, seamen limited visas and law by overstay- in New York on who violated .the ing their time. Fascist Fake Exposed The biggest single batch came fro: a ship that was not sabotaged was the Italian luxury liner Con Biancamano, which lingered too Ion m the Panama Canal. It was con cerning this camp that the Fasci press of Italy printed the statemen tnat the Italians detained there wer suffering all kinds of hardships. Th Italian language newspaper, II Pro gresso of New York City, invest gated and printed a complete refuta tion. . This camp, on the old Fort Mis , who formerly worked on Standard Oil tankers. The biggest camp is at Fort Missoula, where there are nearly 1000 Italian seamen. In addition, there are Italians who came to the World's Fair possibility of thei ruse in commercial aviation. But that is something that will have to wait on peace and the passing of priorities. i You're in for a treat when you serve baked beans the KARO way!

Breaches of camp discipline are i-ied by a council of six, of who mone s a member of the Immigration Service, but who does not vote. This council makes recommendations for lunishment which may 'or may not >e carried out by the Immigration Service. Punishments for things that are not criminal are withdrawal of various privileges, or from one to 0 days in the guardhouse, or one o 30 days in the county jail for more enous offenses that do not require tate jury trial. The inmates get the same rations s are given to the boys in C. C. C. amps and to the Army. Sounds Country Clubby In September, 1940, the seamen of tne German liner Columbus scuttled their ship in the Atlantic, east of Florida. As it was not in American waters, the 400 rescued seamen were not guilty of infraction of American laws. They, therefore, had under international law the status of "distressed seamen" and were given haven. For a while they were near ban Francisco, but the Army objected to their proximity. The captain of the Columbus, accompanied by a government officer, then chose an abandoned C. C C camp at Fort Stanton, in New Mexico. Ihere is no detention fence around this place. The men, with the money they got from the German government, painted the houses, built a tennis court and swimming' pool and made themselves generally comfortable. When Uncle Sam froze German monetary assets, the Nazi government could no longer finance them. Now the cost of their keep is ; b.eing paid by the Department of Justice. Like the jermans and Italians in the other two camps, they ^ave the status of men who should be deported but can not be because of wartime conditions. Mental Hazards? BROOKFIELD, Mo. M/PH- Charles T.

There- ore, the woman who could manage o hire someone to hdp her out—at east with her laundry and heavy leaning-shuns the idea and cooks nd cleans and washes and takes are of her family without a bit of elp from anyone. But if she could get a real good ook at herself she wouldn't be so rone to pat herself on the back. In act, she might even admit that she's bit or a dope. For there's no getting around it the woman who works hard over a period of years shows' it. She grows old faster than the woman who saves I herself as much back-breaking work as she can. And she hasn't as much time to spend on herself, concealing the signs of age, as the woman who manages to have a little leisure. Furthermore she doesn't get a chance really to enjoy her family like the woman who takes life as easy as she can. She is always too busy feeding them and picking up after them and laundering their clothes to sit down and enjoy their jokes and their companionship. She is likely to lose out on the opportunity of companionship with her husband, too. For if she prides herself on doing all the work connected with a house and family, and doing it well, she can't say "Yes" to his sudden invitations to go for a ride or join in a game of golf. There are too many jobs waiting to be done Worshipping Work Is Often Perilous And then, too, when a woman makes a god of work and thinks there i* something noble about killing herself for her family, she becomes less and Jess of a human who is fun to have around, and • more and more of a grim-faced drudge, quick to criticize the women who manage to get out of as much drudgery as they can. A woman deserves respect who can not afford to have any help in keeping her family clothed and fed and their home shining—and who does the job well all by herself. But the woman who refuses any help just feel noble isn't very bright If she were, she would find a better way to justify her existence than pretending that no one can scrub a floor or iron a shirt to please her.
