in insert), president of the Sperry
Corporation, world's largest manu
facturers of aeronautical and ma
rine instruments, received his
early technical training in the
U. S. Navy, in which he enlisted
as a young man. "This has proved
of great value to me in later years,"
said ex -sailor Morgan. Pictured
above are new Navy recruits re
ceiving electrical training at one
of the modernly equipped Navy
Trade Schools. The. Navy offers
training to young men in nearly
50 different trades and vocations.
Opportunities for advancement,
to learn skilled trades, for travel
and adventure are identical wheth
er a man enlists in the regular
Navy or the Naval Reserve and
his pay, food, clothing, medical
and dental care are the same.
Heppner high's Mustangs have a
full season ahead of them as out
