JANUARY 6, 1943 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE PLANS MADE FOR DINNER DANCE AT HANFORD HOTEL Weekly Drills Held by Company During Past 12 Months Marking the mustering int slate sen-ice of Company E, sec end regiment, Iowa State Guard a year ago the officers and me of the organization will attend dinner dance in the Wedgewoo room, Hotel Hanford, Monda evening, Jan. II. The local unit was recruited t lull authorized strength of 60 men within a week after enlist ments were opened Dec. 23, 194] On Jan, 12, 1942, the organiza tion was formally mustered fa) Col. Otto I. Ronningen, command ing officer of the Second regi ment. During the past year a pre scribed schedule o£ armory train ing has been carried out by re" ular weekly drills each Monda night at (he armory with non commissioned officers and offi cars schools held at other time during each week. * * * The company also participated in two weeks training at Camp Dodge in July and August ol last year. In addition a successful camp featuring field problems was held at Camp Theodore Roosevelt at Clear Lake last Oct. 17 and 18. * * * ' "Our greatest difficulty," say First Lt. Darrell E. Wilson, re cruiting and .plans and trainin^, officer, "is to keep the enlistee strength to maximum. Voluntee , enlistments in the armed force is the largest factor in the turn over. Almost 50 per cent of thi original membership are in activi service. In addition a large num ber have taken defense jobs a distant places and have been granted honorable discharges." To meet fhis situation the age limits for guard service have been revised. Men in acceptable physical condition between the ages o 17 and 55 are now eligible for enlistment. With the draft status particularly of older men. stabilized the company is now recruiting to strength and it is probable a waiting list will be established While the unit has never been below 50 men a full quota is desired in order to maintain maximum efficiency. Second Lf. Samuel C. Vician ·mess and supply officer, has been able to fully supply incoming ·members with all necessary clothing and eauipment. This is provided by the state without cost to JIB individual. Additional equipment is requisitioned as needed. All officers and enlisted men serve without compensation othei than the satisfaction of having an active part in interior defense Col. Arthur T. Wallace, chief of staff, in a recent memorandum to all members of the Iowa State Guard, states in part. "The contribution of the Iowa State Guard to ^ this nation's war effort may not seem large when compared to the glorious deeds of our soldiers in actual combat, but it has a rea and definite purpose in the tola scheme." * * * Invitations to the anniversary observance have been extended to Colonel and Mrs. Konningen, the regimental staff and Mai. Earl C. Wiclcham, commanding the second battalion. Arrangements for the affair are being made by a committee, selected by the company consisting of Sgt. Frank Schoben Cpl. C.

The first step for men between the ages of 18 and 38 who wish to serve in the navy is to volunteer or this branch with their draf joards. The boards will classify hem 1-A and direct them to report to the nearest navy recruiting station where they will be exam- ned and their induction completed. It Is possible for a man to contact the recruiting service In his community to determine whether or not he can qualify under the standard set up by the navy.
