Corp. David Fisher, 616 East Lombard street, Davenport, now stationed in China with the U.S. marine corps, recently visited his sister, Lieut.

The call was placed at noon in Japan, which is 9 p.m. in Davenport.

Lieut. Mildred Fisher saw service in this country and then volunteered for foreign service during the war, serving in France. She again volunteered for foreign service after peace was declared and was sent directly to Japan.
