#m The NAVY WANTS 3,000 "TOKEN" FORCE ON BATTLESHIP IOWA Iowa's Navy Recruiting Service will endeavor in the month of Sep- ftember and the first 27 days of Oc- ilober, to enlist a "token" force of 3,000 men—equalling In total the approximate number of men who will be required to man the new •."battleship Iowa when the latter is ready for sea duty, some months .hence. Men enlisted in this drive will not •1>e given any assurance of getting eventual duty on the new U. S. S. Iowa—but they will act as a "token" force, backing up the glorious jiame of the Tall Corn State as it •goes forth to war on the bow of .the world's greatest fighting vessel. October 27 has been set as the 'final day of this drive as that is officially designated as Navy Day ^throughout the nation. Many cities and towns in Iowa are already plan- ming ceremonies dedicated to their •men in the Navy for that day. Men from this area can obtain <Tx>oklets, information, or make application for enlistment in the .Navy or Naval Reserve by going to the Navy Recruiting Station at Spencer. The' hew battflaship Iowa was ilaunched at Brooklyn Navy Yard Thursday, Aug. 27. It is now being .•outfitted and readied for final commission and test runs. It is 10,000 tons heavier than any ship now in .the U. S. Navy, and more powerful and faster than any other ship In the wdrtd. Special attention was paid to giving it greater protection against submarine and air atta6k and its decks and sides will bristle with armament. the new ship is the fourth one in the Nlavy to carry the name "Iowa." And It Is the mightiest, Naval officials in christening the ship declared that Iowa was given the honor in part because of the fact that many of the Navy's ablest officers are from Iowa and Iowa men In the enlisted, ranks are called "the Navy's finest." One admiral, asked about a crew for a new ship,,> said merely: f'Oh, pick me a crew of men^-but be sure they all come from Iowa."
