St. Johns Review: Authority

tho Service in which he caroa to
enlist. Any soldior serving in
whatever Arm is permitted, not
rcauircd. to undertake education
al or vocational training throe
hours daily during fivo days of
tho week. It is beliovcd that
this educational opportunity
furnished young men who have
not yet entered college or
' learned a trade, will induce a
largo number of young men
unmarried, to enter tho Army
for the nurnosoof either increas
Ing their earning capacity aftor

So thoroughly characteristic of

it might mnku the terms of
