'W/'ASHiNGTON, Aug. 24.—So so" phlstlcaled is the modern sailor Dial Ihe lallooed forearm Is becoming as rare as a clipper ship. Such Is Ihe woeful news loday from Ihe navy deparlmenl. "We Havo no figures," said Caplain Randall Jacobs, dlreclor of Ihe enlisted personnel division, "but I'll bet talloolng Is at its lowest ebb in history." Time was when the bright Indelible Ink of. Ihe lallooer's needle captured hearts from Reykjavik to Capetown and the sailor considered tho daring designs as Important aa the duffle bag. "1 even remember some of my classmates at Ihe naval academy being tattooed," said Captain Jacobs. Reaction set In shorlly afler Ihe World War. Naval authorllles advanced a number of reasons for Us waning altractlon. One Is lhal sailors are more so- phlsticattd. Another Is that thoso who havo to look at the tattooing aro more sophisticated. Still anolher la lhal sailors got lired of running to the tattooer every time they found | a now girl. ! Allhough lattooing will nol bar a | man from enlisting in the navy, of| fleers do not welcome an applicant with open arms It talloo marks cover so much territory they can bo seen above a uniform Jacket. "Thero was a time," said Captain Jacobs, "when yon could find a tattooer with practically every ship. This practice has almost cnllrely disappeared." Early American seamen learned Iho lure of Ihe lalloo from Soulh Sea islanders and from Ihe old pi- rales who, lo inlenslfy their frightening looks, had hideous faces painted on their bodies. By flexing their muscles they could make them leer or laugh. Although tho heart and tho undraped woman havo been tho most popular motifs among sailors there have been seamen who splurged In designs and let color run riot. Officers recall one enlisted man who had the battle of Manila talloed on his back In Ihree colors. One of his favorite tricks was to twist his back and make a cannon fire. *«-» • Farm Federation in Membership Drive (Associated Press Leased Wire) BERKELEY, Aug. 24.—President R. W.
