Visitors were conducted into almost every nook and cranny of the 441-foot craft, which is moored to the Municipal Pish Wharf at the foot of Twelfth street S.W. A system of arrows guides visitors along the decks of the ship and down through the maze of hatches and passageways. Officers, trainees and members of the crew are posted at intervals to answer questions. A generous portion of the crowd on the first day was made up of service men and women, including sailors and naval officers. WAVES, especially, barred from sea and overseas duty by Government edict, flocked to the ship. Many of the women visitors aboard were annoyed by the fact they were not permitted to go down into the engine room. Because it is neces sary to climb three decks down—and up again—on tricky ladders that are practically designed to catch high heels, only male visitors are per mitted to visit the heart of the ship. The tour through the Mariner takes about an hour. To prevent jams and bottlenecks below, the flow of visitors will be limited to about 1.000 an hour. The ship will be open to the public daily from 2:30 to 5 pm. and from 7:30 to 10 p.m. as long as she re mains in port. Federal agencies will visit the ship from 10 a.m. to noon each day and employes of the designated departments will be al lowed time off from work for this purpose.

In his letter, Mr. Stimson said it would be “to the personal advantage of every officer and member of the enlisted personnel of the Army to provide for his future financial secu rity by systematic saving while he Is in the Army.” Navy’s Buying Cited. Secretary Knox said the Pearl Harbor Day bond record of $23,000, 000 in War Bonds sold to naval per sonnel demonstrates the Navy's de termination, Mr. Knox said, “to back up the fighting ships and fighting men with fighting dollars.” Frank Tripp, chairman of the Allied Newspaper Council, assured sponsors of the Fourth War Loan drive that, despite severe shortages of newsprint, the papers of the Na tion would continue to give out standing support to the campaign by editorials and sponsored advertis ing and by allotting as much space as nossible to War Bond coverage.

Eisenhower, now in Britain completing details for the greatest tlement for the “nonops” last night, made the new pay scales retroactive to December 27.

Beck reported, "and after he left you could almost feel the lift he had given the boys by his visit.” Gen.
