Lieut. Thomas Lenihan arrived in LeMars Sunday for a few days visit in the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Lenihan.  Tom has been flying big bombers at an airfield in Tennessee and instructing young fliers and is ordered to report in about a week at Clovis, New Mexico, where he hopes to get a chance to fly some of the new four engine bombers which are now in production for the Army.  Tom’s brother, Dennis Lenihan, is now a sergeant of the marines “somewhere in the Pacific,” and his oldest brother, Phil, is training at Norman, Oklahoma.
