TUNITIES OF U. S. NAVY
Since secretary Knox announced
the enlistment drive for Uncle Sam’s
new two-ocean navy several weeks
ago, many young men have asked if
they were eligible to enlist without a
high school education.
S. F. Lawrence, commander of the
local American Legion post answei-
this important question for the young
men of this district.
“Navy enlistees do not have to ho
high school graduates,” said Com­
mander Lawience. “Any ambitious
and patriotic young fellow who wants
to serve his country has that oppor.
tunity now by joining the U. S. navy
or naval reserve. Of course he must
be of average intelligence, good char­
acter and be able to pass certain phy­
sical and mental examinations. Now,
more than ever before the navy needs
men of that type.
“All aplicants whether or not they
have high school diplomas are given
an elementary examination contain­
ing about 100 questions.’’ explaiined
Commander Lawrence. “Those recei­
ving a grade of 50 percent or more
satisfy navy educational standards.”
“Naturally a high school education
is helpful in the navy just as it is in
civilian life” points out M. F. John­
ston principal, Estacada high school
“There are certain advantages for
the high school graduate in the navy”
said Mr. Johnston. “He has a wider
background to call upon in earning
advancement in position and pay.
For example men who are proficient
in English may be sent to one of the
navy's communications or clerical
schools. Recruits with a knowledge ox
tools might be marked for trade or
engineering courses. Men with col
lege educations may qualify for mid­
shipmans’ training courses in the na_
val reserve and after their schooling
period they will report for active
duty as officers with the rating of
ensigns.
“The navy has four excellent trade
schools to which new recruits in ei­
ther the regular navy or the naval re­
serve may be sent after a training
period providing they pass the en
trance examinations with sufficiently
high grades. At these schools they
will be trained in any one of nearly
fifty skilled trades or vocations to
which their aptitudes suit them and
will receive free schooling valued at
many hundreds of dollars in addition
to their regular navy pay. Such an
education is valuable for advance­
ment in the navy and later in civil­
ian life,” he concluded.

and pioneer Estacada business man
yesterday passed the 81st milestone
in the journey of life. Although he is
now over 81 years of age Mr .La
Barre looks more like a man of 60
or 65. As he leaned across the coun­
ter in his store here yesterday on his
81st birthday anyone on observing
his clear compexion and evident live­

believed him to be well past the or­
dinary span of human existence. But

have the pleasure some day of re­

BLACKOUT CAUSES A
NEWSPAPER SQUABBLE
Oregon City’s two newspapers the
Enterprise and Banner-Courier have
been having quite a squabble on ac­
count of a certain item in the Satur­
day edition of the Enterprise. The
item in question is a paragraph in re­
porting the blackout in Oregon City
Friday night and reads.
“The only residence in West Linn
was that of E. A. Koen newspapei
publisher with house lights and garage
lights burning.”
Koen says the Enterprise spoiled
the blackout by a display of spite or
untruthfulness in reporting that he
did not turn out his lights.
The truth of the matter apparently
is that Koen did put out his lights
but that he turned them on a coup-
pie of minutes before the street lights
were turned on again in West Linn.
