LOCAL AND PERSONAL
- Sgt. Oliver G. Lee returned home Thursday. He had been
stationed at Camp Pike and was sent to Camp Dodge to receive his
honorable discharge. It is needless to ask "Twisy" how he feels
as he looks mighty fine.
- Oliver Iverson came up from Camp Dodge Thursday to spend his
few days' furlough with his parents here. He returned Tuesday
morning and does not expect to get back to Ruthven again until
the middle of the summer, when he will receive his discharge.
