Soldiers Organize

A number of soldiers gathered at the courthouse Saturday afternoon and organized what will hereafter be known as the Victor Hamilton Post No. 92 American Legion, it being customary to name the various posts throughout the nation in honor of the first soldiers who gave their lives in the war.

The following former servicemen were chosen as officers:

W. J. Ayers, Post Commander; Harley Ferrell, Vice Commander; J. G. B. Coberly, Adjutant; Ralph Morris, Finance Officer; John M. Hamilton, Historian; A. E. Weaver, Chaplain; and Golden Stalnaker, Master at Arms.

The following Committee on Constitution and By-laws was appointed:

A. E. Weaver, W. J. Sharp, Harley Ferrell, J. G. B. Coberly, J. M. Hamilton, Harold Marshall and Fred C. Hardman.

The next meeting of the Post will be held Saturday afternoon, April 24th, at 2:30.  This date was set for the convenience of those living out of town, and it is urgently requested that all such attend.
