Abstract : With the establishment of the Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) program, problems arose in connection with providing the cadets with uniforms of acceptable fit from the standard Navy adult size schedule. A body measurement study was conducted on a representative sampling of Junior Cadets and it was determined that, with the addition of two coat sizes, the adult size schedule range could be used to satisfactorily clothe 98 percent of the students enrolled in this program. Consequently, the establishment of a junior size schedule was not considered advisable. (Author)
