Giving a good account for the Engin­eers' Force,. the " M" Division last Wednesday was leading Group I, while the " B" and 4th Divisions led Group II. Weekly standings are being announced from time to time in the " Orders for the Day". Under the supervision of Ens.

Of course he was still attached to the Navy, but after thirty days had rolled around, he would be as far from the Navy as he could get. No one in the Navy knew that when his thirty days leave expired, hc expected to be still going and on his own. He'd had his fill of the avy.

All men whose enlistment expires and who reenlist after that date may expect the pay­ment of this allowance.
