Olson addressed a strongly worded protest today to federal old-age pension authorities and President Roosevelt against interpretations of a congressional amendment which he contender would greatly damage California's old-age pension pro- The governor declared California would make a court test, if necessary, of these interpretations, saying they could cut some pensions below a living standard.

Reserve Officers Training In Schools Is Recommended Training of reserve officers on a universal service basis in schools was recommended last night by Col. E. A. Keyes, U. S. Cavalry officer. Eighth Corps Area, speaking at the National Defense Week banquet given by the Phoenix chapter of the Reserve Officers Association in Hotel Westward Ho. Stressing the point that "unless Germany is defeated, we must make arrangements to defend o u r » e 1 v e s," Colonel Keyes said he favored stronger systems nf training in high schools and colleges, rather than training men after they have started working. "Regardless of the outcome of the present conflict, we must prepare for the future," the officer stated. He recommended enrolling in the Reserve Officers Training Corps youths who are taking agricultural and mechanical courses, thus preparing men for future defense work in fields requiring those abilities. "For every man who fires » gun, there are five behind the lines who must keep things going," he said, "and we must plan our training program on that basis." Colonel Keyes paid tribute to the value of ROTC training. He said 72 per cent of the officers in the army today are "up from the reserves" and an increase is expected. From the area of which Phoenix is a part, 3,200 of 11,500 reserve officers already have been called up, and an additional 4,000 probably will be mustered by June, he told the group, which included members of the association from Jerome, and similar unsightly, externally caused irritations usually relieved by daily care with Cuticura Soap and Ointment Buy BOTH today!
