America needs volunteers to keep the light of
liberty burning...to safeguard our American
shores...to man our new two-ocean Navy.
United States is now building the most power
ful Navy the world has ever seen. But it takes
than ships and planes to patrol our shores, safe
guard our liberty, protect millions of American homes
and families. It takes men! Volunteers!
Every new battleship, new cruiser, new destroyer
is just so much steel and iron until a crew of trained
men—mechanics, electricians, radiomen, signalmen,
carpenters and other specialists—goes aboard.
That is why the U. S. Navy may train you to bo
an expert in any one of forty-five modem trades and
professions. You will get regular Navy pay while you
are learning. And it is possible for you to be earning
as much as $126.00 a month before your first enlist
ment is completed.
Right now in the Navy young Americans have a
double opportunity to serve their country while build
ing their own security and independence at the same
time.
Grow with the new, greater Navy
The Navy wants men to learn, to advance, to get
bigger pay, to qualify for the positions of responsibility
which must be filled as our naval forces are expanded.
It is a real opportunity for every young man—one
well worth thinking about. There is a place for you
in America’s new Navy.
If you have a trade now or would like to learn one,
why not get the full facts about Navy opportunities
and training today!

Don’t wait. Choose the Naval Reserve
The Secretary of the Navy has an
“All men now enlisting in the
Naval Reserve will be retained on active
Navy duty throughout the period of the
national emergency, but they will be
released to inactive duty as soon after the
emergency as their services can be spared,
with the theme, “Insure Domestic
Tranquility.”

BLUFFTON SOLDIERS AND
CIVILIANS IN WAR ZONE
(Continued from page 1)
left Bluffton the first week in Sep
tember of 1940 for her new home
in the Hawaiian Islands.
In Honolulu, also are Mr. and
Mrs. Carl Weimers. Mrs. Weimers
was the former Miss Elma Hostet
tler, of Wayne county, a student at
Bluffton college. Mr. Weimers is a
teacher.
Miss Niswander in Maui
Miss Evelyn Niswander, daughter
of ?.Ir. and Mrs. Noah Neuer.sch
wander of South Lawn avenue, is
located in Paia on the island of
Maui, where she is teaching in a
private girls’ school.
Although the island of Maui is
not the subject of military action at
the present, it is nevertheless con
sidered in the danger zone, since
strong air bases have recently been
constructed there.
Miss Niswander spent the past
summer in Bluffton where she visit
ed her parents, returning to Hawaii
in September in time for school in
October.
In Pacific Danger Zone
In the Pacific danger zone are
Mr. and Mrs. Paul Wenger, mission
aries enroute to Bluffton from India.
Mrs. Wenger is the mother of
Laurence Burkhalter, Bluffton col
lege student, and sister of Mrs.
Harvey Beidler of South Jackson
street.
They sailed from Ceylon, India,
for San Francisco on a .Dutch boat
last week in October. They will be
here for one year on their regular
furlough. They were last here in
1933.
Word has not been received as to
when the missionaries will arrive in
San Francisco but is is known that
the same route required fifty-two
days when Dr. and Mrs. P. A. Pen
ner, returned to this country last
spring. Dr. and Mrs. Penner at
tended sessions of the Middle dis
trict conference of Mennonites held
at the Ebenezer church last summer.
Although the Dutch boat should
be near the coast of California now,
it is possible that its course might
have been changed due to the
Japanese-American hostilities.
It is believed that Lt. David
Kliewer, former Bluffton resident
and son of Rev. and Mrs. P. A.
Kliewer now of Albany, Oregon, is
located on the Hawaiian Islands.
At one time he was stationed at the
Evewa air base on the island of
Maui. Lt. Kliewer is bomber pilot
in the U. S. naval air reserve.
No direct word has been received
yet from any of the Bluffton resi
dents in the danger zones.
Mrs. Robert Wheeler, of Long
Beach, Calif., sister of Mrs. Dale
Davidson of North Main street was
scheduled to sail from San Francisco
the first of this week to join her
husband who is in the navy and
stationed at Pearl Harbor. It could
not be learned Tuesday night wheth
er Mrs. Wheeler had sailed as plan
ned.
•Lt. Com. Eugene Lugibihl, whose
mother, Mrs. Lee Lugibihl of Find
lay was a former Bluffton resident,
is also believed to be in the Pacific
with the fleet. Lugibihl, according
to latest reports was assigned to
the U. S. S. Downes at Honolulu.
