Lieut. Col. A. Marston of the Ninety-seventh engineers, Camp
Leach, Washington, and Major T. R. Agg of the Ninety-eighth
engineers, have returned to Iowa State College and have resumed
their former positions. Col. Marston will be dean of the
engineering school, and Major Agg will take his place on the
engineering faculty. The two men entered military service shortly
after the war began and were finally booked to go overseas in
November about the time of the signing of the armistice. Dean
Marson declared that engineering education is bound to undergo
radical changes as a result of lessons learned during the war.
James Fitzgerald of Sioux City, who has been in the ambulance
service overseas for some months, has been awarded the cross of
honor by the Italian government for gallantry in action. Private
Fitzgerald participated in the last great Italian drive against
the Austrians. In the letter apprising his father of the honor
that had been bestowed upon him he said nothing about the
specific act which won him the honor, but said "it all came in
the day's work." He saw service on the Mexican border before
going across the seas.
