Sioux City Youth Leaves to Enter Military Academy

Richard J. Beaubien, son of Mr. and Mrs. O.J. Beaubien, 915 Jackson Street, left here Sunday to enter the United States naval academy at Annapolis, Maryland. He received his appointment through Vincent Harrington, who was Ninth district congressman before he entered the air corps.

Richard Beaubien was a member of the National Honor Society and president of the Civics Literary society while a pupil at Central High School. After graduation there in June 1940, he studied mechanical engineering two years at Iowa State College, Ames, where he was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, was active in intramural sports and was the college intramural tennis champion.
