Explosives Reduction-in-Force Cuts 29 Employes; More to Follow First reduction-in-force notices were issued by the Personnel De- partment last Tuesday as a result of planned reductions of personnel in- volved in the closing of the Explos- ives Department. These notices are effective April 16 and were issued to the following group of personnel: 21 munition workers, 3 laborers, 2 security in- spectors, 2 painters and 1 general helper. ~ll of the personnel affected were in retention group III, meaning that they were serVing under indefinite appo~ntment and do not .have reas- signment rights under the reduc- tion-in-force regulations.

All were taken to the Mojave hospital for treatment and remained there until early this week.

These persons are also in group III with the exception of the nurse. Hereafter it will be necessary to · issue reduction-in-force notices at approximately two-week intervals on the basis of a schedule estab- lished by the Explosives Department and approved by the Station Com- mander for closing the Explosives Department operations in the latter part of July. The Personnel Department has also assigned a representative of the employment division of Explos- ives for the purpose of negotiating reassignments and transfers to va- cancies on-the Station. These trans- fers will for the most part involve personnel in Groups I and II and will minimize to a large extent the neceSSity for formal reduction-in':' force procedures.

It is expected that reduc- tion-in-force will largely be con- fined to employees in .group m. / High School Grads Now Eligible For OCS Training Educational requirements for Navy warrant officers and enlisted per- sonnel applying for the 16-week course at Office\- Candidate School in Newport, R.I., have been lowered, according to a report received this week.

En- listed personnel must have complet- ed four years service in the regular Navy prior to appointment. Chief petty officers have the option of qualifying under either ot the two requirements. There is no restriction as tQ the number of a candidate's dependents. Eligible personnel must submit re- quests for consideration to the i r commanding officer by July I, in order to make the selection for oes trainees next year. f Successful candida~ will be com- missioned ensigns in the Line or Supply Cor p s and Civil Engineer Corps upon graduation fro m the Newport school.
