Iigh percentage of military
onnel have no government in-
surance, or only few dollars
worth, Gen. Marshall, Army Chief
of Staff, announced recently.
"This situation is extremely
embarrassing as it brings about
a condition where some depend-
ent in some community receives
substantial monthly insurance be-
nefits and others receive nothing
or insufficient for their reason-
able requirements." the general
said in a statement.
"Dependents do not understand
and the department cannot satis-
factorily explain why some com-
manding -officers have failed to
educate their officers and troops
to the value and need for max-
imum coverage."

Tampa U. to Provide
Mathematics Course
For Enlisted Men

Here's a chance for enlisted men
to get college credits in mathe-
matics. Arrangements are being
made with Tampa University to
provide a concentrated course ac-
ceptable as the required college
math for some ASTP applicants.
The course will be the equivalent
of six semester hours. Full courses
in college algebra and plane trig-
anometry will be given in a short
period of time. A certificate from
Tampa University will be ac-
cepted as the necessary year of
college math.
In order to qualify for engi-
neering courses under ASTP,
men over 22 having less than
three years of college are re-
quired to have a year of college
mathematics. Quite a few men
have appeared before the Field
Selection Board and have not
not qualified for lack of this
math. They can now remedy that
deficiency.
The course in question will be
taken during the man's own time.
He will be required to pay in ad-
vance. Fees and starting dates
will be announced later. Watch
the columns of this paper for fur-
ther particulars. In the mean-
time, stop in at the Base Classifi-
cation Office at 8th and B Streets
and notify Lt. Prior, who is in
charge of the AST Program, that
you would like to take this
course.

Senate Committee
Told Army Goal Is
8,200,000 Men, WACs
Declaring that at the present
time there were 6,800,000 men in
the service, Lt. Gen. Joseph T.
McNarney, deputy chief of staff,
told a Senate Appropriations
Committee recently that a goal
of 7,500,000 enlisted men and non-
commissioned officers had been
set for the end of this year.
Adding that .an overall total of
8,200,000 officers and men, in-
cluding 150,000 WACs would be
sought, Gen. McNarney added,
"In the training and equipment
of our armies we have made
enormous progress in the past
year. Our allies are with us and
we are united in our efforts to
defeat the Axis."
The General's statement, which
was quoted in Army Times, was
accompanied by the testimony of
General H. H. Arnold that by
next spring the Army Air Forces
will be the most powerful ever
assembled by any nation and will
have superiority in the air in
every war theatre.

Are You a Saboleur!
Much has been written concerning sabotage. Vivid pictures have
been drawn with words and paint to impress upon the minds of the
American people the dangers encountered daily by unsuspected
enemies who wait to demolish factories, important utilities, troop
trains, and ocean convoys. Lurid posters remind us that the enemy
is listening to our softest whispers. We gaze at the pictures ..... and
go right on whispering OUT LOUD!
None of us would deliberately betray a military secret. None
would actually uproot a railroad tie with the intention of destroying
,a troop train. We'd be horrified if someone suggested that we are
capable of setting a time bomb in a public building to bring about
the death of our fellow Americans. We'd do none of these things ...
we think! --.; '*0;i lrjwiX
Yet, there are women ... in the WAAC who are guilty of
sabotage. An unbridled tongue can be as dastardly a weapon as the
gun or sword of the enemy. A tongue, thai hangs in the middle and
wags at both ends, can be as useful to the enemy as a time bomb or
a hand grenade willfully thrown among your fellow men.
The WAAC who constantly (and loudly) harps about getting out
of the service now that the opportunity has arisen... who slyly in-
timates.that those who choose to remain are mentally only one de-
gree less than a half-wit, is as.surely a saboteur as the alien who
deliberately betrays the movements of, troops or the location of. im-
portant military objectives. Her wagging tongue is no less deadly.
than the howitzer that will kill her brother, her sweetheart, or the
boy-who used to live next -door.
True, the WAAC is different from what most- expected when they
enrolled. There have been few -bandsand flags displayed for the
--WAAC- to date.:There has been- diverse criticism. The WAAC is too
new to-have-earned the acclaim that many thought should be theirs
with; the-donning of khaki. The war is not over yet! Time enough for
bands -and flag-waving when we. have accomplished what we set out
to do.
The WAAC who joined. up thinking she might be stationed in the
home town,, where she would be a glorified heroine to the local drug
store cowboys, didn't question where she'd be sent when she took the
oath. She didn't ask if there'd ,be unbearable heat and mosquitoes,
transportation difficulties, or lack of laundry facilities. She said she
wanted to do her part in winning the war ... she wanted to relieve
a man who could carry a gun to finish the fight.... she wanted to
cross the seven seas, if necessary, to win th peace. She prayed to
pass the physical and educational requirements that she might en-
roll for the duration and six months. The "duration" is not yet over.
Fortunately, there are but few saboteurs among the women who
honestly sought to do their duty, to protect there share in America's
freedom. Those few exceptions who talk of running out... of going
back to jobs that pay better money... to days of sleeping past rev-
eille in the morning... to spending nights dancing while their men
folk fight ... are the Mata Hari's of-this war. Their talk, while su-
perficial, can be dangerous.
Uncle Sam needs every WAAC now in the service. He needs
thousands more to replace men for overseas units. The WAAC who
talks maliciously, because she couldn't "take it," may be the decid-
ing factor in encouraging others to desert in time cf war ... she may
commit sabotage by inducing the weak sisters ... those wavering on
the fence ... to desert with her. The enemy loves her for her aid
to their cause!
