Communication

Naval Brigade Needs Recruits.

[We invite all men in the University to submit communications on subjects of timely interest.]

To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

The Massachusetts Naval Brigade is in need of men of good size and build.

The organization is under the supervision of the Navy Department and has a station ship of its own for drill purposes and short cruises, to wit., the U. S. S. "Chicago," lately a part of the Naval Academy Training Fleet.

Men are required to devote one evening a week to drills of different kinds connected with the duties afloat and ashore. They will also be required to go on a cruise of eight days, coming the latter part of July in each year. Last year the cruise was made upon the ships of the North Atlantic Battleship Squadron.

It offers an excellent opportunity for any man who has a liking for the water to become familiar with Navy methods and drills, to see something of the coast and enjoy short cruises over week ends, in both small boats, torpedo boats and large ships. For further information apply to   LIEUTENANT L. F. GATES,   1102 Barristers Hall,   Boston, Mass.
