Enlistments In Guard Are Urged

Recruiting Officer Tells Of Advantages

With preparations nearing completion for the departure of Co. K, Michigan National guard, Oct. 15, for a year of active duty, new members still may enlist, Lt. Roy Tice, recruiting officer, reported today.

The guard unit now has a membership of 81 men, with the membership limit of 114 men. The advantages of joining the guard again were emphasized by Lt. Tice, who pointed out that a three-year enlistment in the national guard ends military service for these men while conscripted men, after a year on active duty, are subject to call for camp training for the succeeding 10 years or until they are 45 years of age.

The three years in the national guard will be made up of the year of active duty and two years' attendance at weekly drills.

Max Chapman of Newberry, a former Co. K member, returned to Ann Arbor to re-enlist and go south with the local unit. Two brothers and another youth, from Angola, Ind., have joined Co. K, coming here to enlist because of their friendship with one of the Co. K members. They are Paul and Kenneth Nisonger and Robert Brown.

New members added within the last week are Jack Packard, Ervin Kitchenmaster, Joseph Schmitz, Theodore Kaufman, Joseph Seriani, Max Chapman, Robert Wagner, Edwin Barnard, Vernon Cox and Paul Lepisto.
