T h e c a r r i e r i s fully equipped with gun mounts, landing lights, flags and airplanes--yet the nearest water is a kitchen spigot. Commanding officer of the vessel is Navy Chief Signalman Andy Baratelle who, along with another chief, used old salvage wood to construct the 16-foot-by-54-inch "USS Navy Recruiter." Baratelle is in charge of the Huntington Park Navy recruiting office. * t * * SELDOM (if ever, in facl) is an enlisted man skipper of a vessel--sn Baratelle mastered that obstacle by building his own. Stranger even is the fact that Baratelle, who mostly has been a destroyer sailor and has never sailed aboard a carrier -- built a model carrier. The primary reason that he, and Chief John Becker of the Huntington Park Naval Reserve Training Center, built the model, was for use in parades by recruiting offices of the Greater Los Angeles Art Classes Dl--.
