Gladstone (1878). Officers Are Newest Need for WAVES Des IMoincs -- Women officers are being sought for 9 major types of jobs, Lt. Comdr. W. J. Amos, officer in charge of WAVE procurement for Iowa said here Thursday. They are: Supply, communications, air navigation, aero- logy, educational services, radar (technical), radar (administrative), medical and general duty. Only a small proportion will be classified for general duty such as administration, business management, institutional management, accountancy or personnel work. While it has always been the policy of the navy to assign commissioned women to duties in which their civilian experience would be most valuable, the original selection of candidates has been made on a rather general basis. The new system provides a sharper definition of duties for which women are needed. To qualify for a commission, a woman, must be a U. S. citizen in good health between 20 and 3G years of age with no dependents under 18. Women over 30 may be eligible if they have achieved outstanding reputations in definite fields and if they can meet the strict physical requirements. At present there are .more than 7,000 WAVE officers on active duty, and it is anticipated that there will be more than 10,000 by the end of 1944. .A sizable proportion of the new officers during 1944 will be commissioned from the enlisted ranks. All will receive indoctrinal training at the U. S. N a v a l Reserve Midshipman's HOME ON LEAVE--Lt. Arm Jorgensen has returned to her duties at Kcesler field station hospital.

School, Northampton, Mass., and then be given any necessary additional training in their special fields. Newest of the duties for which women officers are needed is the educational services program under which naval personnel are given an opportunity to study during their off-duty hours. This program enjoys widespread popularity at large naval institutions overseas and at shore activities and naval hospitals in this country. It is for work in this latter field that women are being sought. --o-- Cpl.
