Seaman Recruit Burton J. Potocnik, 21, USN, son of Mr. and Mrs. Tony Potocnik of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), has been graduated from nine weeks of Navy basic training at the Naval Training Center here.

In the first weeks of his Naval service he studied military subjects and lived and worked under conditions similar to those he will encounter on his first ship or at his first shore station.
