Giants are not wanted in the navy. An order received by the local exemption board places a ban on men over six feet tall for that division of the nation's fighting force. It also provides that drafted men shall be inducted into the navy and marines. Volunteers for lighter service will be accepted when calls are issued. Only men more than six feet tall are safe from the induction into the navy. The objection to the six footer is supposed to be due largely to the sleeping accommodations of the war vessels which have bunks that do not provide for giants. Calls for the navy are expected late in Spetember or early in October.
