working hard for advancement through
the different classes, and finally to trip
a commission In the navy. He was
loath to accept the appointment,
which was obtained without solicita
tion on bla part, as he wished to stay
abroad until the end of the war. He
waa with the very first troops that
went to France with Pershing.
He waa cited In the debates in con
gress upon the question of lowering
the draft age as an example .of what
a very young man 'could accomplish.
for Heller enlisted In the marine corps
when he was only sixteen and haa just
reached eighteen. ' Consequently ba

that the best kind of fighting could be
done by American youths between tha

that many of the young men In 'the
service refused to leave active dutj

of these spirited fellows will be 'desig

Many Well-educated youths entered
the navy and marine corps for the pur
