NIAL The Army, and specifically 1, Organized 'Reserve /Corps, -is fWn-. a hopeful eye on incoming mail bag. these holiday days. .It's watchin for reaction to Its request'of severe'' weeks ago that all' -reserve 'corp., officers (who'are not "currently engaged in organized reserve activities) make 1 • their • future reserve plans known. According'to, a.-notice the Army released to the .press Dec. 3, reserve officers have -until Feb. 1. 1949, to advise the Army whether they want to become part, of .the active .organized Reserve Corps or'whether they want stay Inactive, " . •If they don|t notify, they automatically t will be transferred to inactive rolls, wnich means. to all Intents and~ purposes complete separation from 'the- Army;; ••• • ••>• Inactive reservists are" callable! in time -of emergency, -but" iihey. .have absolutely no.duties'or responsibilities otherwise. ' • • The Army has tried before'to find out-'Individual plans-of its^reserve officers. Last spring .'questionnaires were-mailed-to 274,000.reserve!.offi- cers. More .than '40 per cent of these never replied. • On the other side of the fence, some reserve officers, • looking • for active assignments In 1 the organized reserve,-never, got to .first base with the Army iti spite of letters and other attempts to'.establish contact. •But that's-water over.ttie dam. Brig; Gen. Wendell Westovcr, head of the • ORC, notes that • since the questionnaire was ' sent ' out last spring, the OEO has established "a ,ong range training program." •''The current program affords ex- ;enslve opportunities -for- reservists ;o take an active part in the es-' sential mission assigned to the ORC n the nation's security plan," Gen. The Perfect Companion •- ' . For / .COLD WEATHER COMFORT PENDIETON WOOL SHIRT Take rteh, soft woolerv from one of the'coun- try's .most famous mills—Combine it with the fine .tailoring that goes, into a .dress shirt— And you have the handsomest, sport shirt money eon buy—a Pendleton, of course! Your choice of solid colors or plaids. ' ' 10.00 „< 11.50 /estover said in a press statement cently. ... .He .went' on to.'point out., that . thousands of Reserve, M-Day- issignment vacancies exist In the JRC today . . .'"and that. . . ."a '.iberal promotion" policy, inactive auty and non-disability retirement have'become fact since last Spring." .'If you are a reserve Army officer NOT currently engaged In reserve activities, and 'think, you'd like to be, you should. write or go to see your local unit instructor or your state's senior-instructor before Feb. 1 -and ask to be placed in an active ORC unit—or at least, ask .for more lnfo:mation. I'can't tell you how to contact one of thc;io instructors. The ORC told me Hint every reserve officer kuow.s where his local unit or. his stats senior instructor is located. If you are.the exception. I guess your best bet would be to write the ORC, Washington 25, D. C. • The ORC is specially interested in vetercas of World War II. They suy vacanJes axe particularly attractive for lieutenants and captains, but add there is* also room for field grade officers (major and up). If you decide to join the active ORC you will have to earn at least 30 hours of credits each year to stay in. Nothing tough about that, but you must earn 50 points a year as ft minimum to build up credit towarij retirement for non-disability. . . Seems to -me it would be worth checking up on tha so-callod new ORC. The ORC is certainly-Interested in checking up on you., But it it doesnt hcur from you by Feb. 1 you cnn count on 'being included out National Guard Units Postpone Sessions Weekly drills of Company C and Headquarters Company,, Isf Battalion, llsth Infantry, National Guard, were not held- this week because of the holidays, Lt.
