The next morning at quarter3, his division off. cer complimented him on returning a day early and not tak­ing a chance of being over . leave G03h, this Navy was swell after all. The next morning at breakfast, Char­les seated himself and shouted, " Pas3 the beans, Joe, a fellow has to eat to have vitamins if he expects b make good in this Navy." The End ( Contin: led from Palre 1.) General as to number of years to be iacluded in computing enlistment". It has been a hard fought battle for years to have the reenlistment aIlo-.\" a: lce placed once more on the s' atute book,. It is to be paid to en­Ii- ted men ( including members of the In~ ular Force) who have been honor­ably discha~ ged and who reenlist within three months from the date of suc?! discharges. A man whose pay falls within the first, second, or third pay grades shall receive $ 50.00 for each full year served in the enlistment period from wh. ch h:) was last dischargeJ, but the total l hall not exceed $ 300.00. _\. man whose pay falls within the fourth, fifth, sixth, or seventh pay grades shall receive $ 25.00 for each ye:::. r ~ el ve I in the enlistment period for which he was last discharged, but the to, al shall not exceed $ 150.00. An enlisted man who has been or shall hereafter be discharged after completing the service required for transfer to the Fleet Reserve, will not be reenlisted unless he first exe­cU. es a written statement to the ef­fect that, in consideration of his be­ing accepted for reenlistment, he voluntarily waives his right to trans­fer to the Fleet Reserve until he shall have completed two years of service un er such enlistment. THE BLDE ! BONNET --------- 3 " We have company for supper, John," Reenlistment Allowance is Law said his mother as his father entered the front room. " That's swell, wh0 is it?" Charles' father asked. At th: s, Charles came from the closet. " It's your son," his mother replied. " Well, if it isn't," said his father, " When d: d you arrive, son?" " I just came in an Lour ago," replied Charles. There was no hugging with his father, it was a handshake and a glint in his eyes that let you know that you were wel­come. His father was a stern man, but he was honest and a good father. He had always played square with his children and done all in his power to make their childhood happy. After supper and having answered r.. lany questions about the Navy, Charles C: ecided to go and see some of his olJ friends. " Why, Charles Moore," exclaimed Mrs. Burns as Charles arrived at the home of his best friend, " when di I : ou come home?" " I came home this a: ternoon, Mrs. Burns. Is Bob home?" " Why, didn't you know t. hat Bob was married six months ago and lives over on the other side of town, close to his work," said Mrs. Burns. " No, I didn't know, I was just passing and thought I'd stop in and say he! lo," Charles replied. After leaving Mrs. Burns, he continued. This wasn't as he expected it to be. Here he was home to enjoy h: nself before going on, a': d he dis­covered his best friend marrie: i. Well, some of the other bQYs would do to have a good time wi ~. After visiting his old hangoat, " Doc'" Store", he found all his old f: ienJs had left home looking for jobs. Those still at home were too tired at nighc from working to go out and have a good time. If he couldn't have any fun while at home, he could go to work and have enough money to carry him on when he decided to go. After twentyfive days at home, and having been turned down by every firm and company for a job, He didn't know what to do. Everyone had told him he was lucky to be in the Navy. He didn't have to worry about unions, strikes, or losing his job or anything like that. Also, his father and mother were proud of their son being in the Navy, and he was so healthy and had grown a great deal since enlisting. Maybe he should go back to the Navy and give it another chance. Things weren't like they used to be. So, bidding his parents good- bye he left, and arrived aboard ship just ( Continued from Page 2.) '-'" hen it was time for him to return anJ he didn't leave? Well, he woulJ cross that bridge when he came to it. Arriving at the front door, he sat his suitcase down and pressed the Loor bell. There was a noise in house as someone crossed the floor to open the door. " Why, it's Charles!" shouteJ his mother as she opened the door. " Sure is, Mom, I'm home for vaca­tion," replied Charles. " Charles!" shouted his sister as she came from the kitchen, " Why didn't you tell us you were coming home, and we could have met you at tne train." " Oh, I didn't come by b · ain. I drove down with a friend of mine, and I wanted to surprise you," Charles replied. Thi~ was the life. thought Charles, as he sat in a big easy chair with a nice, cf, ol glass of lemonade. You sure weren't greeted like this in the Navy. Well, his father would be home from ' Nork soon, and after greeting him, he could go around the neigh­bQrhood and see all his old friends. A Change of Heart " Hide, here comes your father," said his mother. So Charles dodged into the closet, as his father entered. Radio Highlights Although the present schedule of Yard li' erty doesn't keep anyone a­board very much, there are still a few radio fans who prefer not to miss their f: lvorite programs. Speaking of favorites, an expert at the game makes the following sug­gest: ons as highlights of the radio week: Don't mss Kay Kayser's " Musical School of Knowledge", each Wednes­day evening " right after supper, or the immediately following " Music Hall Prog- ram", with Bing Crosby and the golden- voiced Pat Friday. In addition, check the following " musts" on your listening list: Guy Lombardo's " Sweetest Music this side of Heaven", each Monday and Friday from 1730 to 1800; the " First Nighter Plays" at 1730 on Fridays. Wednesday evening, 2000, brings us one of the most popular quizzes, " What's My Name?" Fred Waring furnishes a different musical program every weekday at 1900, and obliges also with a musical sportscast, con­tain'ng the big- league baseball scores. - R. B. T.
