Bob Tribby Post of the American Legion,
Now Definitely Organized. May Join Any Time.

When the formal application for a charter for the Bob Tribby Post of the American Legion was forwarded to state headquarters today, it had been signed by 57 men of Mt. Pleasant and immediate vicinity who served in the army or navy of the United States during the world war. In some cases their parents of boys who have not as yet returned signed up for their sons. As far as is known, this is the largest list of charter members secured in the first district for any post, Fairfield and Burlington, however, going over the fifty mark. New names are being added every day and any who wish to join may do so at any time. It is expected that by the time of the next meeting, June 25th, the hundred mark will be easily reached. Those who singed the application for the carter are as follows:
