To All Enrolled Men
John Paul Jones once said "Don't
give up the ship." Your government
today says "Don't give up the job
until your ship call comes."
To the hundreds of patriotic men
in South Dakota who have enrolled
with the United States Public Ser
vice Reserve the big question is
"When will I be needed" This the
Reserve is not at present prepared to
answer. It has a big task which takes
time. It is coodinating the informa
tion about each one. In due course
of time an examiner will personally
visit each and make a report on their
qualifications. In the meantime, each
is advised to hang onto the work he
has and thus do his bit, giving the
most effective service in his present
station until he may be needed and
is called.
Every man who has enrolled," said
Chas. McCaffree, South Dakota di
rector for the U. S. Public Service
Reserve, "is a part of the macinery of
the government and will be used in
some way or another as the need
arises. Each is expected to continue
to do his present work and to respond
promptly and willingly to the many
calls for his help in either time or
money as he is best able to do. The
man who knows how to wait is the
man who wins and patience is the
secret of waiting. Be a good waiter
until your turn comes."
