We had an all-male Navy until July 30 1942 when President Roosevelt signed the bill authorizing the WAVES. The Idea of uniformed women In the Navy seemed r=
strange at first but now a year later the Women Reserves are a familiar part of the war scene and just one of the boys'- and to celebrate their first birthday last week n
the WAVES gave the Station a treat by presenting 'Strictly Scuttlebutt,' a stage show, in the Mainside Auditorium
i. Variety Is the spice of life, and the WAVES show had plenty variety and even a li'l) spice as witness the curvaceous dancing chorus (pictured at the right). Proving they ,
I are pretty and graceful as well as useful in the war effort, the WAVES danced the South American Samba and Rhumba much to the delight of the audience. Membersof 1
the chorus were Marie Duffy radioman third class who directed the dancing. Janey Losey Beatrice Meesta Eleanor Mason, Lynn Roth, and Dorothy Koch, all seamen
second class, Imogene Coosey, Beatrice Hughes and Marjorie Brown, radiomen, and Specialist (T) Phyllis Poole.
I The extravaganza was climaxed (as pictured at the left) with the presentation of a one-candle birthday cake by Captain R. W. Shrum senior chaplain, to the WAVES.
l Standing beside Capt. Shrum is Lieut. (jg) Eunice Horne, former senior WAVES officer of this Station. The All-WAVES cast is in the background "I present this
first cake to a grand group of women who so wonderfully are representing one of our favorite sexes," Capt Shrum said in a short but sweet speech.
