Lt. (jg) Anne Dorsey, in charge of WAVES recruiting in Iowa and Nebraska, is in flort Dodge to make arrangemenjfe for a three weeks' recruiting I drive opening March 1.
A WAVES information center will be established at a Central avenue location which will be announced later. In charge will be Miss Ramona Colucci, recruiter third class, and Miss Gladys Fred-ricks, yeoman third class. Like Lt. Dorsey, they are on duty in the Des Moines office.
Young women between the ages of 20 and 36 in good health are needed for service in the WAVES to replace men for sea duty. Previous Training Unnecessary They need have no previous training, Miss Dorsey pointed out, "for the navy will give them complete training in whatever field the recruit shows an aptitude.
"WAVES will find places and may qualify for ratings in the hospital corps, in communications, aviation mechanics, storekeeping, etc.," she emphasized. Recruits accepted will receive four to six weeks' indoctrination at Hunter college, New York, after which they may be selected to attend a specialist school, Lt. Dorsey said. The officer asked the assistance of Fort Dodgers in obtaining the necessary office furniture for the information center. Two chairs, table and a couch are desired, Lt. Dorsey said. Even light summer furniture will be acceptable, the officer continued. Persons who would like to assist the drive by loaning the furniture may get in touch with the local navy recruiting sub-statior on the third floor of the pos< office.
