Every woman in Marion County is asked to register on Registration Day, which is Wednesday of next week, Sept. 5.
The women of America want to help in every way to win the war and to win it as quickly as possible, to honor, so that the awful carnage may cease.
But the national authorities have felt that organization for this help is needed. Hence Registration Day, as a starter.
Al Richardson, W.H. Carpenter, Ralph Powers, Herbert Thorp, and Rosse Case were in Manhattan on Tuesday interviewing Mr. Walker, the drainage engineer at the college there with reference to flooding problems here.
The uniforms for Company M were shipped from St. Louis on Monday and may arrive today. The shoes and blankets were received several days ago. Company officers are expecting orders any day now to leave for Fort Sill.
Mr. and Mrs. Rosse Case and daughters Corrine and Clarice, Sam Frazer, Mr. and Mrs. Josiah Good and daughters Helen and Florence, and the Rev. and Mrs. Rutledge all motored to McPherson and had a picnic supper Wednesday with the soldier boys Marion Stauffer, Howard Siebert, Paul and Gayle Rutledge, and Alex Case.
Coming to Marion on Sept. 6 will be the 77th annual tour of the original Yankee Robinson big three-ring wild animal circus, the biggest three-ring wild animal circus in the world.
