To Fight For Human Liberty
Reception Given to the 94 Boys Who Went to Camp Dodge Tuesday,
Kuehnle Gives Fine Talk.

Tuesday morning just before eight the boys were formed in column and marched to the depot behind the drum corps and Old Glory, and the farewells were said, best wishes extended and the local passenger, which was about half an hour late bore away 94 more of Harrison County’s best young men to become “Hun Huskers” at Camp Dodge.

The company was placed in charge of Walter I Wolfe, who had for his assistants Charles L Wilson, Robert Deal, Dell Myers, Webb Benning, Lee Case and W T Nelson.

It was on the 5th of September that our first contingent consisting of nine went to Camp Dodge, and on September 22nd 67 more were sent which with the 94 the first of the week makes 170 of the Harrison County young men in the National Army to say nothing of the dozens or scores that have enlisted in various other branches of the Nation’s service.

Our largest Contingent of Soldier Boys Leave For South Friday Morning on a Special

Friday morning a great crowd of people assembled in Logan to bid goodbye and God speed to the largest bunch of soldiers that this county has yet sent to the training Camps. One hundred and ninety-nine, big husky lads, ready and willing had signed up and sworn in and given a number the day before and 6:30 Friday morning the town was alive with the boys proudly wearing little blue ribbon with the wording “Local Board Harrison County, Iowa” and the number which designated the proper place of each one in the line. For the most part every boy had somebody with him, either parent, brother or sweetheart, and in many cases the wife, to cheer him on his way to the field of high honor to battle for democracy and freedom for all.

Whatever of verbal fireworks be engaged in took place Thursday afternoon when C.A. Bolter and Rev. Hargrove spoke to the registrants assembled in the Court rooms.

Thursday was one of the busiest days ever seen in Logan. It seemed like everybody in the county had got the idea into his head that the service flag was to be dedicated that day and that there would be a program and something doing all afternoon and evening. This was prevented by the action of the war Board, but nevertheless it is very evident that the program should have been carried out, as there were thousands of people here with nothing to do, except to listen to the band concert in the evening. Some of the boys entertained themselves by marching around town as they hope to march around Berlin, and hollering their heads off, but that wasn’t very much fun, and only served to cover up the fact that the boys were performing a duty that did not appeal to them as being funny. The yell leader, who ever he was certainly was a good one, but he is not feeling so much like yelling now we’ll guarantee.

Some of the town young people enjoyed themselves at the Bowery dance, but not many of the soldiers were on the floor at the time we were watching, so we assume they did not care for that sort of entertainment.

While our quota was to be 205, several had been released so that only 199 were sent out from here Friday morning – but that looked like a big crowd. All of them were fine stalwart fellows, looking as if they could easily take care of their share of the Huns after a little training which they most assuredly will get at Camp Gordon, Georgia. We have as idea that these boys were sent so far from home to avoid the requests for furloughs to come home and the great number of visitors that make regular trips to Camps that are within reach.

The 199 who left Friday morning were:
