F. Elliott, commanding the Marin?
Corps, to detail a second lieutenan'
and several experienced enlisted men

search San Francisco for deserters
from the marine corps.
So great has been the demand for

where able-bodied men are paid r.

and mortar and doing other neces

Appeals by the marine corps to the
San Francisco police were futile. Th
policemen refused to arrest marine"
who deserted the service and en

Finally the situation became Eo
desperate that the commandant a,
Mare Island appealed to General El
