GREAT LAKES, Ill -(2)-A dis-
trict review board has been set up
at 'Great Lakes with power to
grant up to six months' deferment
to certain enlisted Navy Reservists.
Rear Admiral J. Cary Jones,
USN, Commandant of the Ninth
Naval District, announced forma-
tion of the board yesterday. It will
review requests for deferment of
Midwestern Naval Reserve offi-
cers and enlisted men, other than
members of the Naval Air Reserve,
who are recalled to active duty.
* * *
THE BOARD will be empowered
to grant up to six months' stay to
enlisted Reservists employed in
certain key industries, to college
students, and where community
health or safety would be jeopar-
dized by immediate recall.
Adm. Jones said no requests
for deferment should be sent in
before active duty orders are re-
ceived. He said the requests must
be initiated within 48 hours af-
ter receipt of orders, and should
be addressed to the Comman-
dant, Ninth Naval District, Great
Reservists employed in key in-
dustries should accompany their
deferment requests with a state-
ment by their employer accurately
lescribing the empioye's duties and
indicating why he is essential.
College students who require a
short time to complete a period of
higher education may be deferred
for a time, but there will be no
continuing deferment until gradu-
ation for all college students.

physical constitutions being what

crawl into the audience studio to

SEVERAL TYPES of broadcasts

One of these featured an In-

a popular song for the benefit
