Mcln- tire surgeon general of the Navy and chief of the bureau of Merit- cine and Surgery, emphasizing the Navy's need for 4,000 more doctors to meet current and projected re- qu/rements. "As our comba~ forces throughout the world penetrate more deeply into the inner siirong- holds of the enemy, the battle will, become more intense and the cas- ualties greater," Admiral McIntire stated "The Navy's medical officers are already assuming a tremendous burden and additional doctors must be procured if adequate medical care is to be provided. The /noreas- ing tempo of the prosecutiort *of the war will place even heavier de- mands on our medical officers. 2me extraordinary record established thus far in the care of casualties is a tribute to the skill of the Navy's doctors and more are needed if this is to be maintained." Doctors interested in applying for the Navy Medical Corps should contact their local Procurement and Ass/gnment Committee and the Office of Naval Officer Procuremenf, 16~17 Northwestern Bank l~uilding, Minncapalis 2, Minnesota.
