Following a tour of duty with

Francis Joseph Paquet, formerly
of Wapinitia, Oregon, is now
with the U. S. Marines in the
Philippine Islands, according to
recent advises to Marine Corps
Headquarters at Washington.

S. Marine detatchment of the
Cruiser Hdron, which has a rov
ing commission to patrol' the
waters in the Far East. During
the last few weeks the Marines

assigned to duty with the fleet
destroyers, and have been cruis
ing about in . the vicinity of
Canton and Hongkong. They
recently returued to the Philip
pines to resume their duties on
the U. S- S. Huron, now lying in

of Wapinitia, before he joined
the Marine Corps at Portland.
