Memorial services were held in the Norwegian church at Gunder last Sunday in honor of Theodore Wettleson, a young man of that locality who recently was killed in France fighting for Old Glory. The services were very impressive and a large gathering of friends were in attendance.

A Memorial Card for Theodore C. Wettleson
He served with Co. 1, 39th Infantry.

Prvt. Theodore Wettleson
Born July 8, 1894
Died Aug. 3, 1918
Age 24 years, 26 days
Died from Wounds While Serving As an Infantryman with American Expeditionary Forces.

He heard humanity's clear call,
And knew the voice divine;
He gave his life, he gave his all,
In deadly battle line.
The silent stars in love look down
Where lies this loyal son;
In frost and dew they weave a crown
Of honor he has won.
