Mars, in 1924, was considered by most scientists, to possibly harbor life
Look for UFO materials from the Naval branch of the U,S. military. You may strike pay-dirt, as they say

It isn't surprising, to this day we are still listening to the heavens for signals from aliens. It doesn't mean they exist or that we believe in them. At that point in time they were just going by what they thought. We don't listen for martians anymore because they don't exist or they have nothing to say to us. So now we listen to other areas. It is a good idea to keep listening, just in case.

Wonder if the army heard something, or if they were just recruiting " In Case ". Ofcorse anyone with knowledge of radio signals back in 1924 would be an expert.
So although they " Claim " to be looking for ET signal analysts, they might actually have been trying to recruit skilled Radio signal analysts (From signals that are weak and sent from a far distance). Just my thoughts
I haven't been able to figure out who the telegram was sent to. Who was the recipient of this Navy telegram? Is that discernible from the telegram itself?
Isn't weird that there is no specific recipient though, instead looking like it was "transmitted in the blind." I know the audience is astronomers but which ones? Lol. Its a little perplexing. Maybe it wasn't a sensitive issue at the time but you think this type of telegram would have a specific and intended receiver. Maybe not

I think that it's interesting that they were only interested in three specific days between 8/21/1924 and 8/24/1924. Was Mars particularly close at that time or something?
