Muehlen, BUirier 3 April, 1937. CORRES* POND* ENCE * COURSES Many attractive correspondence courses are offered by commercial in­stitutions of learning. Occasionally men are prompted to sign up for such a course by a natural desire to im­prove their chances of advancement in the service or their means of gain­ing a livelihood in civilian life. Such courses, if worth taking at all, require a certain amount of pre­vious education and a sustained de­termination to complete them. The lack of time, other interests, and other demands upon the student's in­come, frequently lead to a decision to abandon the course before the first lesson is completed. NOT BELOVENT EDUCATOR The student will thereupon discov­er as a rule that the benevolent edu­cator is in no different category from any other creditor- he wants his mon­ey. Usually there is little delay be­fore the correspondence school places the obligation in the hands of a col­lection agency and the erstwhile stud­ent recieves numerous letters calcu­lated to inspire prompt payment of the whole cost of the course. The threat in such letters will vary in de­gree but the meaning is always the same, " You'll have to pay us in full in the end so do it now, or else-." It is not necessary to explain in de­tail the legal machinery for the col­lection of debts. It may be pointed out that there are various remedies by which the creditor of an unwilling debtor can prottect his interest pend­ing a more favorable opportunity for collection. By luck, hard work, or unexpected inheritance, the debtor may accumulate funds from which the creditor can extract the amount of his claim by legal methods. The debtor may achieve in his community such a standing that he cannot af­ford to ignore claims which may af- THE BLUE BONNET fect his credit rating. It has sometimes occured to men in the naval service that they may plead as a defence that until they are twenty- one years of age they are not legally capable of making a binding contract. This cannot be regarded as a sure defence, as members of the naval service are generally regarded as being emancipated by reason of enlistment. NO REFUND Whether or not payment can and will be compelled will depend upon the circumstances of the particular case. A backward glance at the sit­uation usually discloses that the stud­ent has become a party to a legally­binding contract to pay for the course in . full although he never submits a single lesson. Too often it developes that he did his part to make the con­tract ( i. e.- by making an offer) when he sent in an application blank. Such blanks are generally prepared by school authorities and lawyers of con­siderable experience. They are usu­ally so worded that the contract is made when the school has received the application and has mailed an en­rollment card, or the first lesson as­signment. Refunds, thereafter, are something not included . in the school vocabulary. READ APPLICATION The prospective student should therefore read the application blank carefully before he mails it, noting well its provisions, and bear in mind that verbal modifications by an agent will quite generally be of no effect. reveal the fact that Aviation's dash­ing mess- cook has suffered a decided drop in his usually high average. Carefully young fellow! .... The mul­titudinous boxes, trunks and so forth in the Port Hangar are just an ac­cumulation of worries to Martin, who skippers that part of the ship .... I wonder why " Pat" Readette is walk­ing around in circles with a benign expression on his happy face????? O. K. Pat!! We understand, and sym­pathize ... Three days of sea duty coming up next week ... Wonder how the Golden Grainers will stand the strain? Ye- a- a- a- h!! I included my­self, " Rosie"!!! That's all for this time; I'm com­ing in for a three point landing ... I hope! Another flight next week. After an absence of about two months, we of the " Flying Fools," think it's about time to get back in­to print. Here ' tis. The Houston Unit was very for­tunate in securing four new planes during the San Diego sojourn; now that we have been assigned to Squad­ron VS- 9, the new fighting ships are of the type and are in condition to be proud of on the new billet. Prior to Lieutenant Dahl's depart­ure for Panama, the Aviation Unit gave him a farewell party. Needless to emphasize that all hands had a good time. The Rambler Ship's Flight Unit welcomes two newcomel'S to the ranks of it's Pilots. Aviation Cadet W. C. J akeman, reported during the San Diego stay and Aviation Cadet A. J. Dugan, came to the Houston two weeks ago. All hands greet them and wish many Happy Landings! The plane crews are busily engaged in whipping everything into shape preparatory to the coming Cruise. A few more wrinkles to iron ont and we are sure the Houston planes will be on a par with the best. Nothing less would be good enough for the best ship .... Personality Takeoffs: " Charlie the Great" oble, is up to his ears in new resolutions and has his weather eye trained on Coco Solo. This turn of events may give Andy Mellon and some of the other boys a chance with the weaker?? sex. ( Add Note:) Rhyne we doubt Charlie's reversal of form and predict it is merely the " calm before storm" .... Fo' good­' nessSAKE!! What has come over our " Porky" Rosenkrans of late? Heretofore the strong silent type, he's becoming positively talkative. Maybe the tower incarceration had something to do with this change .... Glad to report that " Gunner" Swenson is still batting well above average. Better reform Swede! .... Sorry to
