Tho 92nd Division (Negro) National Army Is In need of soldiers who can qualify as stenographers, electricians, auto-mechanics, machinists, pharma cists, hospital attendants, clerks, typ ists, saddlers, harness-makers, bakers, horse-shoers, etc. Through the co-operation 'of the Press we have secured a number of specially qualified men, but our needs as yet have not been fully supplied. Doubtless there are many Negro reg istrants who are qualified to meet the requirements of the Division, who will be called sooner or later, and who are willing to enter the military service ahead of their turn on tho register In order to serve. Reciprocally, there are distinct advantages to such men of entering tho Army when they are needed most. In so doing they fit into places for which they are best fitted and which they prefer to fill. I will appreciate very much, any pub licity you can give this appeal. All correspondence should be ad dressed to Lieut. T. T.
