Uncle Sam is refusing to draft
for military service any who
have industrial or commercial
training and are needed more at
home. Can you say that a young
person fighting a typewriter or
pushing a pen for Uncle Sam is
not as patriotic as one who shoul
ders the rifle? Certainly not.
Uncle Sam has already so many
men for draft that he has not
enough training camos to call
them out. Yet he is sending ap
peals for help in his work at
home. Then, too, you have the
following uoints to consider. You
are not required to enlist, ar.d
you may resign at anytime. You 1
will receive a training worth
thousands of dollars to you after *
Peace is declared and will have
the permanent recommendation 1
that you have heid a Govern- '
ment position. The entrance sal
ary is from $1000 to $1200 per
year. Can you equal them in any '
other wav.considering the duty 1
you owe your country? Young
ladies and young men who are 1
physically unfit for military ser
vice have this excellent opportu
nity to serve our country and t
draw pay for so doing. The-e |
positions are permanent for busi- ,
ness never gets dull with “Uncle £
Sam.” The Government has \
long since recognized the Tyler ,
Commercial College as the great- t
est institution of its kind for
preparing young people for this
work. Get busy. Do your bit. 1
