Their object v.'ii-s to place the nft\v soldier in :\ position that will army H'ficiency. This group of men. charged \vith properly classifying- trainees, consisted of both commissioned and i:on - commissioned officers. Many of the interviewers, especially National Guard and reserve officers, 'v/tvt- personnel managers in private industry. To iifiSsdurtn efficiency of the army and keep the personnel .satisfied with army life, these men classified trainees according to Ui'-ir pdvate occupations or .special qualifications. The trainee underwent his first clarification test immediately upon airival at the reception center to which he was .sent after induction. At thai time, he received the army general classification which classifies him according to his general capacity to learn. Tests Not Formal His grade on this test helped the interviewer from an estimate ot his probable skill and adaptability. This interview was not a stiff, formal question-and-answer proceeding. The officer with whom hu talked sought to put the new man at ease and to enjoy -more of a casual chat with him, for this in- lerivew was an all-important point in final classification of the trainee. The information he gave about himself — his occupation, hobbies, favorite sport, knowledge of foreign languages, musical or theatrical talent, education, and skill in his chosen vocation—was recorded on what is known as a Soldiers Qualification Card, a record that will follow him everywhere he goes in the army. If the trainee exaggerated and attempted to ,pull the wool over the eyes of the interviewer in hopes of getting a soft job. and was caught' by the interviewer, he probably was sent to a trade-tester whose | Radio Active Treatment.

Find Classification Made When the interview was over, the trainee returned to his group and the card went to an expert classifier who. after studying it and consultin a list of civilian | and military occupations, decided where the trainee should be sent. The classifier's opinion goes before the chief classifier who sent the card to a coding section. After the cards have been arranged in alphabetical order, men with given qualifications can be -selected from the group quickly by a punch -card system which the army is instituting. If a man becomes skilled in his occupation while in the army, that fact will be noted on his card. Officials said specialists were not assigned indiscriminately. If a reception center had 100 automobile mechanics on hand and was asked for only 25, those 25 would be selected through aptitude tests which would establish priority ratings. couple that lived by faith.
