C.A.L.: Definitely notl Service is on a "first come-first served" basis and by appointment. --------------------------------- Caller: How come only two eggs for breakfast? Whatever hap- pened to the old Navy slogan "Take all you want - eat all you take?" C.A.L.: The two eggs ration is temporary. As soon as short- age of eggs is alleviated you can again "Take all you want - eat all you take." Caller: Why can't Navy Ex- change open outside doors to NEX lobby before main doors to retail store? C.A.L.: NEX agrees with you. Lobby doors will be opened ear- lier so you won't have to wait in cold and rain. Caller: During a recent Rec- reation Department-sponsored tour to Akureyri, had to stay overnite at Saga Hotel. All hands were in civvies. At 2200, the toursponsor came by and told officers curfew did not apply to them, but en- listeds have to observe. Why this discrimination? C.A.L.: Tour Director was in error.

It is printed at the naval station printing plant from appropriated and non-appro- priated funds. Navy men on emergency leave don't return...if... Keflavik Navymen qoingon emer- gency leave within 121 days of their tour rotation date may no longer be required to return to the NATO base prior to going to their new duty stations. From now on, sailors on emer- gency leave from here will report to their next command, providing certain conditions are met. This new policy applies to all Atlantic Fleet sea or shore commands des- ignated codes three, four and six. Keflavik is code three. Sailors who have recieved or- ders for their new duty stations can be transferred permanently from Keflavik, with their emer- gency leave counting as "delay in reporting" or transfer leave. Provisions have been made by the Chief of Naval Personnel to les- sen the nardships on individuals, and each case can be treated on an individual basis. In cas, where the individual's orders elude a "not earlier than" "net later than" clause, BuFers will be notified by priority mes- sage, and appropriate action taken. Navymen here going on emergen- cy leave and not in xeciept of or- ders, but falling within the 121 days, can be transferred to a stateside station. If upon ex- piration of leave, and still not in reciept of orders, they will report to their temporary assigned station and await orders. Further information on emer- gency leave provisions under these procedures can be obtained from the personnel officer.
