Dr. L.A. Rosenberg Enters Service of U.S. Navy

Dr. Lauren Rosenberg for the past few years associated with the teaching staff of the University and prominent in the community affaire, has been granted a year’s leave of absence from the University and is leaving Davis today to become a member of the United States Navy. Rosenberg will be attached to the Navy’s Medical Specialist Research Unit No. 1.

A.P. Krueger of Berkeley is commander of the unit, which has fifteen members.

Headquarters for the unit will be in Berkeley where they will have office quarters on the fifth floor of the Life Science building on the University campus as well as the use of laboratory facilities on the campus.

This unit was organized in 1834. It held informal meetings up to the present when it was taken over by the navy. One of its major functions of the works is to hold down epidemics, which might break out in the navy.

Mrs. Rosenberg and daughter will also move to Berkeley sometime next week, it was said.

Public Religious Demonstration For Peace Next Sunday

In a giant rally led by men of the Catholic Holy Name Society, more than 5,000 members with their wives and families of the Catholic Diocese of Sacramento will meet in the Memorial Auditorium at 8 p.m. next Sunday for a demonstration of religious faith and patriotism.

A mass renewal of the Holy Name pledge of loyalty to church and country solemnly conducted amidst the banners of the society and before the crossed American and Papal flags, will be offered in the name of the people by the Rev. Michael L. Lyons, pastor of Sacred Heart parish, Sacramento. The meeting will end with the salute to the flag and singing of the national anthem.

An address will be given by the Rev. Roberts Armstrong, D.D., bishop of Sacramento. Chief speaker of the occasion will be the Rev. Joseph A. Vaughan, S.J., former attaché of the Vatican radio.

Yolo Co. Draft Board Gives Numbers To Men For Selective Service


Interest in when they will be called into military service by men within the draft age has been manifested in Davis and other places by inquiries made to date here and elsewhere. No one is informed on the matter and will not be until the drawings to be made in Washington on Tuesday, Oct. 29, take place.

The Country Draft Board, however, spent a busy week in assigning numbers to men who registered for service. It was pointed out, though, that those getting their numbers first will not necessarily be the ones called first. Those drawn first in the lottery will be called in the order of the numbers pulled from the container.

It is important that each registrant learn his own number and watch for the rotation of his selection. The burden of proof is with the registrant and not with the government, it was said.

The following is a list of selective service serial numbers as applied to registrants from Davis: 15 Stanley R. Buguy, 16 Kazuo Sugimoto, 30 Glen L. Davis.
