By JERRY PETTIT
What will happen to your GI
Joe—YOUR husband, brother, non
or sweetheart—when Uncle Sam is
through with his services as a
soldier and returns him to civilian
status?
Does the army do anything to
make the transition to civilian life
easier? Is the soldier given a hand
at getting back the job he was
promised?
To And the answers to such
questions, this writer visited the
Separation Center at Fort Sheri
dan, 111., where all Michigan, Illi
nois and Wisconsin soldiers will
receive discharges.
What this reporter found there
was one of the most complete,
thorough agencies the army ever
has developed—a process that is
warm and human and backed by
a sincere understanding *of the
problems the returning soldier
must face.
HANDLES DISCHARGES
The Separation Center handles
all types of discharges and re
leases for officers and enlisted men
and women except medical dis
charges, which are issued by gen
eral army hosfiitaTs.
i The center does not decide what
r type of discharge a man shall re
ceive. That is determined before
the man is sent here. It simply
acts as the central processing
•Rcncy after it has been decided a
person shall bo separated from the
army.
Ty pes of releases other than dis
charges which are handled by the
unit include release of men to the
Enlisted Reserve Corps, and plac
ing of officers on inactive status.
An officer does not receive a dis
charge. He is ’ reverted to inac
tive status ”
Separating an individual from
the service taj<e« less than 48
hours, unless the man is retained
for medical attention or his rec
ords are incomplete.
THOROUGH EXAMINATION
During his proceessing. the sol
dier about to be discharged re
ceives the most thorough physical
examination of his army caaeer.
He is also offered free dental and
medical attention so he may re
turn to civilian life in as nearly
perfect a physical condition as
possible.
Hi» is given * nf*at uniform to
take home with him. He is given
advice and counsel by well-trained
men personnel workers who
know their business and ran he
of real service to the soldier in
planning his future.
He is told what to expert in
civilian life today, how to obtain
ration books, where to go to *#»•
about a job or to obtain a loan
under the C.I Rill of Rights.
He is told of all his privileges
granted by the Rill of Rights and
how to make sure he receives
these advantages. He is given
his final army pay and his mus
tering-out pay, pius his mileage
for the trip home.
All hi* military affairs—includ
ing his records are set in order,
so his break with the army is
"clean and complete."

Yule Mail Believed Key
to Cigaret Famine
NEW YORK. Nov 18 fINSt
That 'familiar slogan. “Do Not
Open Until Christmas.” may be
responsible for the nation's cur
rent cigaret shortage, the post
office department believes.
This was revealed today in
John Daly’s “Report to the
Nation” over CBS. Daly said
the post office department thinks
the date of the beginning of the
cigaret shortage, in the middle of
September, is important. He
declared:
“I think all the missing clg
irfti are in those hundreds of
thousands of packages i|'« been
sending to the fighting fronts
. . . those packages marked ‘do
not open until Christmas’.”
