Transcript Page Four. FACTS ABOUT TEXAS --::-- ( Continued From Page One) --..-- her was that the State could main­tain her own Navy. This privilege was never used until last year when the Governor made Ginger Rogers Admiral of the Texas Navy. Recent­ly the Admiral of the Texas Navy visited the Centennial in Dallas and was received with full honors. Comdr. Lewis, senior Naval Officer with the Naval Unit at the Centen­nial was made Commodore in the Texas Navy at this time. In addition there are three more native Texans in the Navy, making the Texan Na­vy about the smallest known. The State of Texas receives its name from the Spainards who spelled the Indian word friend ( Tejas), the word with which Alonzo De Leon was greeted when he arrived to find and expel La Salle. The first white man to set foot on what is now Texas soil was Cabeza deVaca in the year 1536, just four hundred years ago. Texas is larger by 53,000 square miles than France and 83,000 square miles larger than Germany. The only country in Europe larger than Texas is Russia. Texas comprises one­twelfth the entire area of the United States. •• I. e- " I say shipmate--" " No, I haven't any money.

ENLISTED AVIATION PILOTS ( Continued From Page One) --::-- who have been attached to Aviation Units for a period of at least six ( 6) months and who are especially re­commended by their Commanding Officers; who are capable of passing the examination for Radioman third class or third class Aviation ratings, and who are of petty officer caliber, are also desired in nomination for this training.

It is manditory for all men ordered to the Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla. for such instruction, if unexpired por­tion of current enlistment does not permit compliance with the foregoing, to extend current enlistment for a sufficient period of time to cover the requirements. Men already serving on an extension who have not suffici­ent obligated service are NOT eligi­ble for this trai. n. i. n. g.. A LETTER --::-- 1 No day can pass that idle hands Can't write a word or two, And a soul can't find a message That will help to carry thru, If you happen to be one of them Who don't care to write a line; But find that idle gossip is like Magazines and wine. 2 It's best you check the silly tongue And keep yourself in tow, Or the list of missing friendships Will find your name below. For songs can sing the blue notes And tears will dim the eyes But a letter to a loved one Brings sunshine to the skies.
