boy has joined the colors. This time it is Earl
Dummermuth, son of Mr. and Mrs. Chris Dummermuth, who
reside near this town. Earl was working at Canton, South
Dakota, and it was there in a little town, not as large as
Elgin, that twenty-two boys stepped forward and put their
on the roll of honor. They became members of the National
Guard and Earl came home for a visit before they go into
training. They expect to be mobilized at Huron, S.
Dakota, and from there they will probably go to a training
camp in New Mexico, and, after that, they will
probably be sent "across the ocean to France."
Here's hoping the boys in khaki are always successful. May
they meet with few reverses. That they will be true to
their country and perform their duty well is a fact which
we never question.
