First street, will leave tonight for St. Mary's college to take a 10-month course in officer's flight training. Yeoman Hutmacher is one of few seamen to be taken from the ranks to be trained for an officer's rating. He has had three years' Navy experience.

He enlisted in the Navy recruiting office in the federal building in Sioux City. Since last December he has been stationed in recruiting service at Des Moines. Yeoman Hutmacher is a Central high school graduate and has been in Sioux City on a 10-day furlough.
