Text Appearing Before Image:
October. 19 ig BETTER FRUIT Page 17 If you had been on the Arizona
Text Appearing After Image:
HERE she comes, homeward bound, with "a bone in her teeth," and a record for looking into many strange ports in six short months. If you had been one of her proud sailors you would have left New York City in January, been at Guantanamo, Cuba, in February, gone ashore at Port of Spain, Trinidad, in March and stopped at Brest, France, in April to bring the President home. In May the Arizona swung at her anchor in the har- bor of Smyrna, Turkey. In June she rested under the shadow of Gibraltar and in July she was back in New York harbor. Her crew boasts that no millionaire tourist ever globe-trotted like this. There was one period of four weeks in which the crew saw the coasts of North Amer- ica, South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. An enlistment in the navy gives you a chance at the education of travel. Your mind is quickened by contact with new people, new places, new ways of doing things. Pay begins the day you join. On board ship a man is always learning. There is work to be done and he is taught to do it well. Trade schools develop skill, industry and business ability. Work and play are planned by experts. Thirty days furlough each year with full pay. The food is fine. A full outfit of clothing is provided free. Pro- motion is unlimited for men of brains. You can enlist for two years and come out broader, stronger, abler. "The Navy made a man of me" is an expression often heard. Apply at any recruiting station if you are over 17. There you will get tull information. If you can't find the recruiting station, ask your Postmaster. He knows. Shove off! Join the U. SI
