Joins WAACs

Clarksville, Ia.—Louise Fisher, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Fisher of Clarksville, is the first from this vicinity to have successfully passed all physical and mental tests and has been accepted into the ranks of the Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps at Des Moines.  She has returned to her home here and is awaiting her call.  Miss Fisher is the sister of the late Capt. Alfred Fisher, who gave his life in the service of his country on June 4, 1942. He was engaged in piloting the new B-24 planes, known as the “Liberators,” across the Pacific to unnamed ports, for use by our armed forces. His plane crashed near San Francisco, killing the entire crew of 14 men.
