On Leave Here; Commissioned in April as Ensign
Ensign William J. Guyton, son of Mrs. E.A. Guyton, 609 Fifth Avenue, who is spending a 10-day leave with his mother here, was commissioned an Ensign in the United States Naval Reserve in April of this year. Upon receiving his commission, he was sent to Princeton University for instruction.

Ensign Guyton was graduated from the Eau Claire Senior High School in 1939 and, after attending Eau Claire State Teachers College and Villanova College, Villanova, PA, enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering in 1943. 

During his junior and senior years at Pennsylvania, he did research work in electronics with the Johnson Foundation in Philadelphia.

After graduation, he was employed by the Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company in Milwaukee in electronic research on control circuits for the Navy. Allis-Chalmers loaned him to the Bureau of Ships in the Navy Department in Washington in January. 

Following his leave, he will be temporarily attached to an East Coast port as a maintenance officer in sonar underwater sound detection equipment. This work will lead to overseas duty.
