Reserve Leader Asks Elephant Trainer Gets License
Organization of Ex-GIs To Marry Mabel Ringling
Into 'Stop-Gap' Force
Col. William H. Neblett, president
of the Reserve Officers' Association, :
yesterday called for the organization
of the Nation’s 16,000,000 trained
veterans into a “stop-gap defense !
force.” j ■
Writing in of The Reserve Officer,
the association's monthly magazine, :
he blamed the “professionals” for
the disintegration of the armed
force* after V-J Day. He charged;
that the general staff, in releasing:1
trained veterans of World War II, I ■
failed to abide by the Selective Serv- '■
ice law, which called for the re- '
tention of veterans in reserve com
ponents for further training.
The general staff “yielded," he
claims, to “pressure” of individual
members of Congress advocating
rapid demobilization.
“No official action ever was taken
by Congress on the subject,” Col.
Neblett writes. “It is believed that
no such action would have been
taken by Congress, if the burden of
dismissing the members of the
armed forces had been made the
responsibility of Congress.”
The views of Col. Neblett, a vet
eran of both world wars, were said'
to be based on disclosures by high
military officials at the recent
American Legion convention.
The Colonel declares that, al
though the Selective Service Act
called for a reserve, the general
uwugni puaaiuic tu main
tain a volunteer Army large enough'
to protect the country. The only
answer now to the problem, he I
says, is to organize the 16.000,000;
discharged veterans, as required by \
the Selective Service Act.

PORT WORTH, Tex., Sept. 27.—
Miss Mabel Ringling, 23, grand
daughter of a founder of the Ring
ling Brothers Circus and a per
former in the Ringling Brothers
Bamum & Bailey Circus, confirmed
today that she and Richard Durant,
an elephant trainer, obtained a mar
riage license in Shreveport, La.,
Monday.
At the circus lot here both Miss
Ringling and Mr. Durant said they
had not married and were "not sure
when it will take place.”
With a Louisiana license, it was
assumed they would not be married
before the next stand in that State,
which will be in Lake Charles on
October 6.
Visibly upset by reports of the
romance which became public before
she was able to inform her mother,
Mrs. James A. Haley, and her step
father, the president of the circus,
Miss Ringling declared she didn't
“want all that ballyhoo.”
“I did want to tell my parents
about it before it became public,”
she said. -
Mrs. Haley was reported en route
today to Fort Worth from her ranch
in Montana.
