Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA Feb. 6, 1943
Mrs. George Carter Responds to the Call of the WAVES
Mrs. George Carter, the former Dorothy Marie Adams of Pacific Grove, whose husband was owner-manager of Flor de Monterey on Franklin street before he joined the coast guard, is now in the WAVES. Mrs. Carter will be trained at Indiana university for a petty officer rating as a storekeeper, one of the many ratings open to WAVES, and which pay a minimum of $160 to $220 per month. Mrs. Carter is the daughter of Mrs. Flora Adams of Pacific Grove. She is a graduate of Pacific Grove high school and Ventura Junior college. Since last fall she has been working in Richmond with the Kaiser company. Her brother is Captain Norman H. Adams, who has been stationed at Camp Belvoir with the army engineers and who is on his way to the west coast this week. Mrs. Carter also has two sisters, both in Ojai at present, Mrs. John Wentworth and Mrs. Joseph Bagguley. The Adams family is well known on the Peninsula. The quotas for both the WAVES and the SPARS (Women’s Reserve of the Coast Guard, have just been doubled, so all those interested in joining up should call at headquarters, 708 Market street, San Francisco. (PGHS) 1929
