The plan is to provide a standard
floral emblem in the form of a wreath
twenty- two inches ( 22") in diameter
carrying a large bunch of flowers for
the sum of $ 2.00. To facilitate the
handling of the funds and the ordering
of floral pieces it is desired that
the standard emblem be used so far
as it will be acceptable. However,
if some wish to spend larger sums
on flowers, special floral emblems of
proportionately larger size and value
will be purchased. Such decorations
as are sent will be placed upon the
designated graves as soon as received.
All correspondence and remittances
pertaining to the decoration of graves
should be addressed to:
The Chalain, Fort Myel', Va. ( for

The Bureau of Navigation offers
the following information relative to
the decoration of graves.
The Chaplains at Fort Myel', Virginia,
and the Presidio of San Francisco,
California, have tendered their
services, without remuneration, to the
personnel of the Army, Navy, Marine
Corps and the Coast Guard, to
decorate the graves of such of their
deceased relatives and friends as are
interred, respectively, in Arlington
National Cemetery and in the Presidio
of San Francisco National Cemetery,
for Memorial Day, May 30, 1937.
It is bel i eve d that undoubtedly
many officers and enlisted men, and
their families, who cannot personally
attend to it, will desire to avail themselves
of this opportunity to have the
graves of their loved ones cared for
on this occasion.
The preliminary written examination
of candidates for the Naval Academy
Preparatory School, convening
at the U. S. Naval Training Station,
Norfolk, Va., on 1 November 1937,
will be held on Friday, 30 July 1937.
Before being elegible for this examination
each candidate must pass
a physical examination, be examined
by a board of three officers to determine
if he has the necessary mental
requirements and, be recommended
by his Commanding Officer. If the
prospective candidate fulfills the ab:
JVe three requirements, he is recommended
to the Bureau of Navigation
to take the examination for the Preparatory
School Class. Then upon
successfully passing this preliminary
examination, he is ordered to the Prep
Class where he studies for the Naval
Academy competive examination held
the middle of April.
The Law authorizes the appointment
of one hundred Midshipmen
from the service each year. These
appointments are given on the basis
of a competive examination. However,
to date, the quota has never
been filled. Which means that any
one who can fulfill the various physical
and mental requirements and
who successfully passes the mental
examination will receive an appointment.
After leaving Honolulu, and before
reaching the States, the Ship's Secretary,
Ensign Mackenzie, will have
the word passed for all prospective
candidates to report to the Captain's
Office. At this time anyone interested
should report for futher details.
