Admiral Asserts Inducements
Offered by Navy Fail
By the Associated Press.
Graduates of medical, dental and
pharmaceutical colleges and of
nurses’ training schools are finding
the opportunities of civil life so at

General E. K. Stitt, in his annual re

was transferred to the permanent
••are of the Army, with 217 marine
dead, and 23 Navy men still carried
as unidentified or nnlocated.
"it seems certain.” the report
said, "that the time must soon come j
when, despite all the effprts and re
search. a certain number of bodies
now carried as ’unidentified.’ must be j
declared ’unknown.’ and those .‘un- j
located’ as ‘missing.’ ”
