HIGH SCHOOLS TO STRESS SKILLS NEEDED IN ARMY Boys Advised to Stay in School Until Call by Armed Services The army and the high schools are getting together on preinduc- tion training lor boys below draft age. Lt. John R. Rackley, Omaha, chief of the preinduction training branch ol the army in this area, was in Mason City Wednesday to discuss army educational needs with'school officials and lo talk to nigh school boys and their teachers. High school boys w i l l be advised to stay in school. "I want to encourage them as much as I can to finish school and to use their time well," declared Lt. Rackley, a former college professor, although still comparatively young. "They will need in the army the basic knowledge they get in high school and if they don't already have it, we will have to take the time to give it to them." "My whole purpose in coining to the high schools is to try to save training time after the boys ;et into the army," he emphasized. He waved aside the suggestion that schools have not been meeting educational needs. "If we did not recognize that they are doing a good job, the army would not be coming to them for help/' he pointed out. "But we want them to how the basic educational Buttleman, Clear Lake Police Chief, Seeks Sheriff's Office Announces on G. 0. P. Ticket in Cerro Gordo Primaries June 5 T. L.

There are 4 categories of pre- induction training, the officer explained: Academic, physical, vocational and orientational. Ordinary academic education is very important in a soldier, he ointed out, because a man must e able to use language to read nd write instructions and mcs- ages; he must know arithmetic to se a map intelligently, and if he as been taught the social sciences e has an understanding of why e is in the army with the result lat he will be a willing soldier nd will learn more quickly. The reason for physical training s obvious, of course, he continued, nd high schools are meeting the eed for intensified courses. Vocational training is one of the most important high school activi- ies as far as assistance to the .rmy is concerned, Lt. Rackley reported. He said that teaching the undamentals of machines, radio, lectricity and shop work will give the boys a head start on the ·cry intensified training they must bsorb in the army. The orientation is the only category not now included in the curriculum of the high schools, Lt. Rackley continued. It involves explaining to the boys the system under which selective service operates, what happens at :he induction stations and later steps in army life, ft is designed to teach the boys some things which they otherwise would have to take time to learn after induction and also to make the transition to army life easier for them. The lieutenant emphasized particularly the need for vocational training, pointing out that 9 out of 10 men in the army need to know something about machinery and electricity. "Even a gun is a machine," he suggested. "Surprisingly feu* inductees even know how to use hand tools. And most machines use electricity." The d i f f i c u l t y encountered by the army is that essential war industries also need men with mechanical training and since the army must have them it is forced to train many right from the elementary stages. No attempt is being made by the army to install new courses high school curriculums, the Pop" fame will : ' . . , interview Roy- Parks Johnson al Arch .Gunnison, a radio network employe, who was interned by the Japanese at Manila and later repatriated on the liner Grips holm.

Typical cases were instances where storekeepers failed to display their community price lists the dollar-and-ccnts ceiling price for meats, groceries' and soaps, or where the OPA price group classification was not in evidence. Price p a n e l representatives brought back reports that merchants appeared anxious to co operate and were taking advantage of the representative's per sonal visit to their stores by re questing additional information relative to OPA price control rcg Illations and asking for assistance "By the first of next week wi should have a pretty conclusiv picture of exactly how price con trol is working here in Maso City," be declared, adding tha the next step will be for boari officials to prepare the 2nd survc; schedule. 225 Attend Melody Mill Jam Session Tuesday evening's crowd at (he "Melody Mill" youth center in the Y.
