Co. E Leaves Tomorrow For Peacetime Training At Camp Claiborne, La.
Four officers and 88 men of Company E, 133rd infantry, U. S. national guard, will leave here tomorrow shortly past noon for peacetime military training at Camp Claiborne, near Alexandria, La.
The special train will leave at 12:50 p.m., Capt. E. E. Meller announced, proceeding to Chicago via the Illinois Central system then south to Memphis, Tenn., and on to Alexandria, La. The guardsmen are scheduled to arrive at camp Saturday morning.
Doubtless there will be thousands of people on hand when the company boards the train.
Supt. Burrus E. Beard announced that the school band would be at the train providing music for the unprecedented event and that classes in all schools would not be convened for the afternoon until 20 minutes after the train has departed.
After leaving Webster City, three companies will be added to the troop train at Waterloo and another at Dubuque, it was learned.
In order that the guardsmen may be kept well informed on events at home, copies of The Daily Freeman-Journal will be mailed each day to Company E without charge.
