Dog Sent Home

MANCHESTER, IA. – Wolf, 4-year-old German Shepherd dog belonging to Lt. B. Q. Philippson, son of Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Philippson of Manchester, is a “conscientious objector” to the war program.

After two years training in the canine division on coast duty in California, Wolf was discharged because he refused to train to take the offensive against the enemy.

He is being cared for by Mr. and Mrs. Philippson and their daughter, Sallie, until their son goes overseas, at which time Wolf will accompany his owner.

The Philippsons recently moved here from Des Moines.
