NEWS of the Boys in the Service.

Edmund Rohde, who was employed with the Iowa Public Service company before he went into the Army last spring, is now an aviation cadet at Santa Ana, California, and hopes to receive his wings and a commission upon completion of the course.

A brief letter came Monday from Av. Cadet Edmund W. Rohde, son of Mrs. Alma Rohde of LeMars, formerly of Remsen. Edmund reports a change of address from Oshkosh, Wis., to the air corps classification center at Santa Ana, Calif. He says he has been classified as a bombardier and is attending the bombardier-navigator pre-flight school.
