BALLAN- T1NE (Marine Corps'Public Relations Officer) If she can identify 27 different types of clouds and all their subdivisions, if she is on intimate terms with the barograph, hygrometer and theodolite, if she can glance at a line of teletype code and enter wind velocity and direction, temperature, visibility and dew point on a weather map, and if she wears a smart green uniform with a dash of scarlet--then she's a marine aerographer, on whose accuracy and efficiency de- iend the weather forecasts essen- ial to security in aviation. Women marine aerographers are assigned to marine corps air sta- ions to release combat marines for the battle fronts. Since the actual safety of air traffic depends, in the final analysis, upon the precision with which the aero- jraphers read weather instruments, decode and encode weather data, and make weather reports, the job of aerographer is a vital one at every base. The women selected for this work are highly qualified in reliability, intelligence and special training. Women marine aerographers are trained in an intensive 12- week course at the aerographerls school, Lakewood, N. J., which is a unit of the naval air station at Lakehurst, N. J. Twenty-five carefully selected members of the marine corps women's reserve, which observes its first birthday Feb. 13, enters, the school every month.

For off-duty hours they buy un- rationed "fun shoes"--gay, frivolous, flattering, made with wood or plastic soles, cloth, straw or braid tops. These are the shoes to wear to the beach, to the country, around the house on weekends, or to team with a glamor dress for an evening of dining and dancing.
