Ensign Jeanne Barnhart



Dad Outranked

The tables are turned in the Barnhart family now. C.V. Barnhart, La Porter City, Ia., undertaker and casket salesman, enlisted in the navy last fall and was assigned to recruiting duty at Waterloo. His daughter, Jeanne, joined the WAVES last spring. For 20 year father gave order to daughter, but now father is a petty officer first class and daughter has been commissioned an ensign.
