Six Eau Claire Youth Join Navy
The Navy now offers its Eddy Test for radar training to young men 17 years of age and to draft registrants who have had their pre-induction physical examination, said Shuey. Applicants who successfully pass the Eddy Test are given 10 months of specialized training equal to two years of college. This training also assures them of a good post-war job in a field where opportunities are unlimited, Shuey said. Television, radio engineering, industrial electronics, and aviation are just a few, and anyone interested in preparing himself for the future is invited to investigate the Navy’s radar program now. The Eau Claire office is open on every Thursday and Saturday and is located in the post office building.
