Attention of all avy and Marine Corps personnel is invited to the significance of l\ 1other's Day : l11J to the duty that exists for each one rendering tribute to his mother.

There are three Progre s Exam Books furnish­ed with each text book for Seaman first class. Therefore, when the Div. Officer issues a training course to one of his men, that man is expected to complete his course as quickly as p:) ssible and he is required to return the text book to his Division Officer before he is given the examination. All hands are reminded that these text books are printed at great ex­pense by the Bureau of avigation and that they are loaned to men to prepare them for advancement. They are not the property of persons to whom they are loaned and must be re­tlll'l1ed to the officer who issued them. This vessel now has on hand twen­ty- five new seaman first class train­ing courses and seventy- five Pro­gress Examination books available for issue. ' Vhen you have completed your Progress As ignments and arc ready for your examination for the course, report to your Divi ion Officer, turn in your text book to him and he will give you your final examination in the cour e. All men now having Seaman first class text book and having completed the course are advised to return the text books to their re­spective division officers. This is es­sential if we are to have enough training courses to prepare eligible men for Sea1c., during the coming cruise.
