ers Tell of Opportuni
ties For Young Men
Since Secretary Knox announced
the enlistment drive for Uncle Sam's
new Two-Ocean Navy last week,
many young1 men have asked if the7
were eligible to enlist without a high
Captain Charles Ford Sumner,
Commander of Perqufcnans Post of
the American Legion, answers this
important question for the young
men of Perquimans.
"Navy enlistees do not have to be
high school graduates," said Com
mander Sumner. "Any ambitious
and patriotic young fellow who wants
to serve his country has that oppor
tunity now by joining the United
States Navy or Naval Reserve. Of
course, he must be of average intelli
gence, good character and be able
to pass certain physical and mental
examinations. Now, more than ever
before, the Navy needs men of that
type. . ,.t
"AH applicants, whether or not
they have high school diplomas, are
given an elementary examination
containing about 100 questions," ex
plained Commander Sumner. "Those
receiving a grade of 60 per cent or
more satisfy Navy educational stand
ards." "Naturally, a high school educa
tion is helpful in the Navy, just as
it is in civilian life," points out F.
T. Johnson, superintendent of Per
"There are certain advantages for
the high school graduate in the
Navy," said Mr. Johnson. "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 or aptitude for handling
tools might be marked for a trade
or engineering course. Men with
college educations may qualify for
midshipman's training courses in the
Naval Reserve and after their
schooling period they will report for
active duty as officers with the rat
ing of ensigns.
"The Navy has four excellent trade
schools to which new recruits in
either the regular Navy or the Naval
Reserve may be sent after a train
ing period, providing they pass 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
hundreds of dollars in addition to
their regular Navy pay. Such an
education is valuable for advance
ment in the Navy and in later civi
lian life," he concluded.
