CHAPLAIN ROBB COMING


WILL TELL OF IOWA'S PART IN WAR AT ROYAL NEXT THURSDAY



Chaplain Robb, of the 168th Infantry will be in LeMars Thursday, October 30, and deliver a lecture at the Royal that evening under the auspices of Wasmer Post, American Legion. Chaplain Robb tells a thrilling and interesting story of the part the Iowa boys in the 168th played in the world war. He was with the 168th during all the time it was in foreign service and served with the regiment on the Champagne front, the Marne and in Argonne forest. He saw Iowa boys win everlasting fame when they checked and drove back the best trained soldiers of the world and buried with his own hands many who paid the supreme price. Chaplain Robb talks about our own boys as they were seen by one who shared their hardships and no person who wants the truth about the campaign in France can afford to miss his address at the Royal, October 30. Tickets are 50cents.
