Nava! Reserve Programs Let Oregon Men
Remain In College ’til Education Completed
^ Ed. note: This is the third
and final article of a series
dealing with reserve classes of
the armed services. Today’s ar
ticle describes the navy’s defer
ment classifications.
V-l is designed to enable fresh
man and sophomore college stu
dents to remain in college until
the completion of their sopho
more year, at which time they
are given a comprehensive ex
amination which, if passed, quali
fies them for retention in college
for the remaining two years.
Upon graduation, they are or
dered directly to active duty at
a naval officer’s training school.
Candidates for enlistment must
be male citizens of the United
States, not less than 17 or more
than 26 years of age; be of good
character and possess potential
officer-like qualities. They must
be unmarried and remain unmar
ried until transfer to another
class of the naval reserve, at
which time regulations of the
class to which they transferred
will apply.
Tropical Isle Charms
Scheduled for Alumni
Think of an island with swaying palm trees, soft green grass, and
bronzed Hawaiian hula girls undulating in the background.
Sounds like a dream, but will become somewhat of a reality when
members of the Hawaiian club, Hui-O-Kamaaina entertain for Home
coming alums at the rally November 6, according to Clinton Childs,
Opening with their theme “Song of the Islands,” the program will
get into full swing with tantalizing hulas by Roberta Madden, Lulu
Pali, and Elizabeth Cooper.
Pre-War Hawaii
Hawaii as it was in pre-war days will be pictured in the songs of
the chorus and dances of the girls as thoughts of the war are waved into
the background as alums and students take a temporary mental trip
to the islands. Happy thought.
With the soft singing of "Aloha,” followed immediately by the "Star
pangled Banner,” everyone will be brought back to reality and the
Aso on the program will be the following cub members: Barbara
Jean Tuttle, Carol Wicke, Dawn Trask, Helen Crites, Ben Elders, Jack
Simpson, Terry Watson, Ruth Monroe, Betty Crabbe, Lois Winsley,
and A1 Howard.

V-l students have the oppor
tunity of transferring to the na

time they desire, providing they
can pass the required physical

not prejudice one’s opportunity
to qualify for any other officer
training class.
Pre-Med and Dental' Students
Students enlisted in this pro

or pre-dental courses will, at
their own request, be retained in
class V-l for not to exceed four
