Roughly translated: "Enlistments are open for good indigenous young people 16 to 19 years old who have passed through the H.I.S., Schakelschool or E.L.S. Further information at District Head or Assistant District Head."

Schakelschool was a vernacular school.
H.I.S. (Hollandsch-Inlandsche School = Dutch Native School) and E.L.S. (Europeesche Lagere Scholen = European Lower Schools) were Dutch-language schools open to some indigenous people in Indonesia.
