Betty Livermore, Now Sergeant of Marines, on Leave

Betty Livermore, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H.E. Livermore, 408 1/2 Kirkwood, a sergeant in the women's division of the U.S. marine corps, is spending a short furlough in Davenport.

She received a promotion from corporal to sergeant just before coming home from a tour of duty at marine headquarters in Arlington, Va., where she is an auditor in the paymaster's department.

Prior to enlisting last summer, Sgt. Livermore was a member of the staff with Davenport ration board. She survived her "boot" training at Hunter college, New York.
