Franklin Barney Hayes

The U. S. Navy welcomed another former resident of Eau Claire, WI, when Franklin Barney Hayes, 22, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Hayes, 426 East Madison Street, reported for active duty at the U. S. Naval Training Station at Great Lakes, IL last week.

The new recruit is now undergoing recruit training, after which he will either be sent for duty aboard a Navy Man-o-War or given additional specialized instruction at one of the Navy's many service schools.
