Timing plays an important part* by MSgt. Oulian R. Mills No matter what we attempt to do in life, it seems that "timing" plays an important part in how things turn out. As President Theodore Roosevelt once stated: "Nine-tenths of wisdom consists of being wise in time." The importance of timing is also ad- dressed in the Biblical verse which says, "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven." Thus, a person's life must be geared to doing the right thing at the right time, which incorporates the wisdom in Presi- dent Roosevelt's statement. Some people feel compelled to work constantly; they become workaholics. There are also persons who never do an honest day's work. Neither of these types are wise because their lives are unbalanced. Offsetting these extremes are the per- sons who work a solid eight-hour day and then are able to spend some time with their families and play an occasional game of golf or pursue some other leisure Navy Campus wants time activity. Such people enjoy a full life and become an asset to their em- ployers and their families. In setting aside time for the different elements of life, a person also needs to give time to spiritual or sacred things which are equally important to the overall balance. To be wise in time, an individual needs to take time for worship, study and participation in his or her church, syna- gogue or spiritual fellowship activities. When people become actively involved in the spiritual things of life, they are not only wiser but better balanced indi- viduals. Those who come into contact with well-balanced people find them easier to get along with, more willing to listen and better able to get things accom- plished. Such people are more capable of understanding others around them; they are better coworkers, neighbors and friends. Since nine-tenths of wisdom consists of being wise in time, don't procrasti- nate: start balancing your life to in- clude work, play and spiritual things. your knowledge Bringing your education a little closer, the Navy Campus Office relocated yesterday to BOQ 638. The office, situated on the second floor area which was formerly a game room, is paneled and carpeted for patron comfort. A separate room will be used adjacent to the main office for testing purposes. Telephone numbers will remain the same—7795/6226. Chapman College of Orange, CA will probably also occupy a portion of the new location this fall. Chapman plans : Closer to offer a master's degree program in business administration. The University of Maryland Overseas will offer eight courses vice its usual five classes for Term I, starting Aug. 22. Los Angeles Community College Over- seas will also have a variety of voca- tional and technical courses. "The move to the new location will provide more room for testing and counseling. Hopefully, we feel that we are closer now to those whom we serve," Cheryl Dorman, U of Md representative, explains. RM1 Radioman First Class Michael J. selected POOQ Cuslck was selected last week as Naval Forces Iceland Petty Officer of the Quarter. Representing Naval Facility Keflavik, RM1 Cusick was chosen from outstanding performers by a selection board of chief petty officers at the fa- cility. The competition became even tougher at the COMNAVTCE Petty Officer of the Quarter board because six out- standing petty officers from tenant commands and Naval Station departments vied for selection. The COMNAVICE board looked at many qualities and factors when selecting RM1 Cusick for Petty Officer of the Quarter. RM1 Cusick was cited for his great pride in and personal concern for his military dress and bearing: "His character and moral dedication to Naval Service are evidenced by a grade of exemplary in conduct on his last five evaXuationsQJ "Efficiency in his primary assign- ment as communications division training petty officer is also important. He recently scored 96 points out of a possible 100 for the communications training program during the past Naval Facility Operational Readiness Inspec- tion; 91 per cent of radiomen trained by him were promoted off the February 1977 examination efforts toward self-im provement where he displayed a "can do" attitude. He has completed 32 hours of instruction for Phase II Equal Opportu- nity/Race Relations Command Training Team, a two-week course in leadership and management and 11 job-related corre- spondence courses with an overall aver- age of 3.8 since January 1976." Limited Duty Officer Program RM1 Cusick is an 11 year Navy veter- an who previously served at many duty stations, including NATO Northern Head- quarters, Oslo, Norway and Commander Fourth Naval District Staff Philadel- phia. His abilities have also been re- cognized by Commander Ocean Systems Atlantic Fleet in a letter of commenda- tion for his superior performance at Naval Facility Keflavik. Recognizing Petty Officer Cusick's selection as Petty Officer of the Quar- ter, he will be authorized a 96-hour liberty and his name will be added to the Petty officer of the Quarter plaque, displayed at the Naval Station quarter- deck. Currently, he is enrolled in a Uni- versity of Maryland Overseas economics class and is preparing to take the College Level Entrance Examination with the goal of earning an Associate's degree in management. Petty Officer Cusick has also applied for this year's Radioman First Class Michael J.
