Local Naval Reserve Facilities
Inspected By District Commander
Top braM of the 13th Naval Dis
trict looked over facilities of the
Naval Reserve Klectronic Divi
sion 13-7 and conferred with com
munity leaders and public officials
during a visit lo Roseburg Wed
nesday. At noon Rfar Adm. OTge C.
Towner, commandant, and mem
bers of his staff from Seattle,
were entertained at a luncheon in
the Hose Hotel. The event was at
tended by business leaders along
with city, county and other offi
cials. Towner, heading all Navy ac
tivities in the Pacific Northwest,
has supervision over 10.000 active
duty personnel, 12,000 civilian em
ployes and 33.000 Naval Reserv
ists in a region embracing Oregon,
Washington, Idaho and Montana.
His office is over 56 Naval com
mands and 27 facilities.
The admiral told the luncheon
group he feels "some citizens have
the notion our reservists are just
playing soldier."
This impression, he stressed, is
not shared by the Navy. He point
ed out the Navy is presently man
nod at an austere peacetime level
and in the event of a national
emergency the Navy'i opera
tions would soon come to a "grind
ing halt" if it had no reserve ele
ment. As far as the reserve program
is concerned," he said, "The Navy
needs men who are trained, have
orders in their hip pockets" and
are ready to serve when needed.
The officers said he doubted
there will be additional increase
in Navy Reserve recall except to
maintain present Navy strength
by replacing reserves as their 12
month duty comes to an end. He
also commented that reserves will
not be called upon to serve beyond
the 12 months ordered under the
involuntary recall.

Von Borstel gave a brief talk is
the program feature on Farm-City
Week, currently being observed.
He quoted facts to the effect that
40.000 families call Oregon farms
"home." Their farms vary greatly
in size. Some 5,000 contain less
than 10 acres, while 3,200 include
more than 1,000 acres. The aver
age is 507 acres.
He brought out that while Doug
las County is not a big contribu

ond only to Santa Clara Valley
in California for food processing.
Douglas County does lead the
stale in sheep production. It also
produces considerable walnuts,
prunes and apples, as well as mcl
lons. A strange new industry for this
county is land for sale, he stated.
This may seem an odd way of put
