James H. Carey, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Carey, who passed the Army tests for Army air corps flyers at the LeMars high school last week, thought he’d like to take a look at the Navy program, too, so he went to Minneapolis Friday and took the Navy V-5 test, which he also passed. He took the Navy physical examination too, and passing this, was sworn into the Navy Saturday morning. He will be allowed to finish high school and will report for duty after the first of July.
