Status Of Bluffton
Woman Being Studied
Status of the citizenship applica
tion of Mrs. John Klassen, of South
Jackson street, as a “conscientious
objector to military service” is being
pondered by Judge Neal Lora of
the Allen county common pleas court
in Lima following her appearance in
the court Tuesday on naturalization
hearings.
Mrs. Klassen, wife of Prof. John
Klassen of the Bluffton college fac
ulty, told the court that she was
willing to make affirmation to “Up
hold and defend” the U. S. constitu
tion but that her conception of “de
fend” did not include bearing arms.
Prof. Klassen, also an objector to
military service, was admitted to
citizenship several years ago in an
unpreced,ented ruling by Judge E. E.
Everett, but the case was carried to
the federal district court on a bill
of exceptions filed by the naturaliza
tion examiner. The case has not
been decided by the federal court.
Mrs. Klassen appeared at final
hearings in 1932 and 1934 but was
denied citizenship each time because
she could not take the oath of alle
giance without mental reservations.
Judge Lora took the case under
advisement Tuesday morning with
hearings to be continued later.
Many Advantages In
U. S. Naval Service
At the suggestion of Secretary of
Navy Knox, C. A. Biery of the
Bluffton News has Teen made Navy
Editor, to heId the Navy in giving
ambitious loc al youiig men informa
tion about the o jportunities the
“Two-Ocean” Navy offers them for
technical tra ning :md advancement
as they serve theii• country in its
emergency.
According to a i announcement
made public in Washington, a limit
ed number of additional men between
the ages of 17 and 50 will be given
a chance, by enlistment in the Navy
or Naval Reserve, to get to the top,
with big pay, in jobs which by their
aptitude and as a result of examina
tion they show themselves fitted,
from among nearly 50 different
trades and vocations. These include
such callings as aviation machinist,
dental technician, photographer, dies
el engineer, radio technician, electri
cian, welder, storekeeper, and baker.
Enlisted men may also qualify for
commissions as officers.
Beginning this week, the Navy
plans for a limited time to accept
new qualified men for training. These
men will be sent to one of four
Naval Training Stations and may
have a chance to go to a Navy
Trade School even before assignment
to the fleet. During this period they
will be given regular Navy pay and
the Navy’s free schooling is valued
at hundreds of dollars.
“Never in the history of the Unit
ed States has there been greater op
portunity for loyal young Americans
to serve their country and build
their futures than right now”, said
Secretary Knox.
In outlining the many advantages
offered by enlistment in the United
States Navy the editor said, “It is
possible for a bright young man to
increase his pay seven times during
his first enlistment and he can earn
as much as $126 a month. This
monthly figure is actually worth
much more when it is remembered
that the man has few living ex
penses and is provided with the fin
est of medical and dental care.
“You have all your food and lodg
ing, and also your original outfit of
clothing provided by Uncle Sam free.
In addition there are free sports and
entertainment—even to the latest
Hollywood pictures. On top of this
you get free travel and adventure
in colorful places—a thing few ci
vilians can afford.
“When you consider the size of
this country and the fact that the
Navy will select only 15,000 appli
cants a month from many times that
number throughout the United
States, the quotation, ‘Many are
called but few are chosen’, will ap
ply to local young men interested.
“Navy men are a ‘hand-picked’ lot.
Candidates must be men of more
than average intelligence and ambi
tion, of fine moral character and
must have the written recommenda
tion of at least two local towns
people”.
The Bluffton News has just re
ceived from Washington a supply of
free illustrated booklets for ail men
interested and, in addition, will wel
come inquiries from young men who
wish to look into the new and great
er opportunities the Navy now offers
for training, for future civilian ca
reers as they serve their country
now in its emergency.
