Four 17 Year Old Eau Claire Youths Enlisted in Navy
Four young men were enlisted in the Navy through the Chippewa Falls Recruiting Office, according to R. W. Shuey, Recruiter in Charge, this week. 

They included Edwin O. Michealson, 624 Summer Street; Earl G. Meyers, Route 4; William. J. Beaulieu, 2805 Conrad Street; and Mark M. Flick, 656 Galloway Street.

All four young men attended Eau Claire High School, Michealson and Meyers being graduates and Beaulieu and Flick still students. Edwin Michealson is the son of Mr. and  Mrs. Ed Michealson. The elder Michealson served in World War I in the 86th Division of the U.S. Army. 

Enlistments of young men, 17 years of age, are continuing in full force, Chief Shuey said, with particular emphasis on the Navy's RADAR program. Those interested in preparing themselves for a post-war trade, accepting the Navy's offer of a $5,000 education equal to two years of college, are invited to see the Navy Recruiter for complete  information at no obligation.

Two Eau Claire men are receiving their initial Naval indoctrination at the U.S. Naval Training Center, Great Lakes, IL. When their recruit training is completed, these men will receive a period of leave. They are Earl G. Meyers, 18, son of Mr. and Mrs. George E. Meyers, Rural Route 4, and Edwin O. Michealson, 18, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. O. Michealson, Sr., 624 Summer Street.
