Policeman Enter SeaBee Service

Here are two more Sioux City police officers who now belong to Uncle Sam. Patrolman Earl Schmidt, 1502 Collins Street and Patrolman Roy Montross, 2522 Rebecca Street, will leave Thursday noon for Williamsburg, W.Va., to enter Seabee service. Both went to work on the department in May of 1942. Schmidt’s assignments include the motorcycle division, radio and a brief time as a special raider in liquor law enforcement, Patrolman Montross worked for about six months in the department’s radio division and more recently has been a squad car driver. The police officers are a part of a group of about 20 men from Sioux City and adjacent territory who will leave here Thursday.
