NO SQUAW MEN!" UNCLE SAM'S ORDER TO
HIS BOYS UP NORTH
Sitka, Alaska, Feb. 27. Breaker
of romances and monitor of young
men's affections!
It's a new role for Uncle Sam to
play, but he's doing it with a serious
watchfulness here and thrqughout
Alaska where his unwed wireless op
erators are subject to the wiles of
Indian and Aleut maids.
Recently a young operator at the
Navy station here became infatuated
with a native girl. Uncle Sam cold
bloodedly transferred him back to the
states.
The same thing has happened at
Dutch Harbor, St Paul, Kodiak and
St. George.
Some day these youngsters,
though bitter now, will thank their
Uncle for saving them from a miser.
Hmmmmemmmmmmmmm
