Pacific Grove Tide, CA May 29, 1942
Clemens Goes to Randolph Field
Royce M. Clemens, son of Mr. and Mrs. H.R. Clemens of 301 Gibson avenue, is one of 12 Californians who have just reported to the basic flying school at Randolph Field, Texas, as members of 42-H, the latest and largest class of fledging pilots. The aviation cadets have successfully complete their nine weeks of primary flying training at schools scattered throughout the Southwest and have now progressed to the 450 horse-power training planes at Randolph Field, the West Point of the Air. Following nine weeks of formation, night, instrument and crosscountry flying training at Randolph Field, they will move on to advanced schools in the Golf Coast Air Force training Center for a final nine weeks before receiving their wings as Army Air Force pilots. The cadets will receive, too, their commissions as second lieutenants. Clemens attended Modesto and Salinas Junior college and the University of California at Los Angeles. Before starting his flight training, he was a telephone company employee.
