PREFACE 

The generous co-operation of the service men, their relatives and 
a number of the county's citizens who were mterested m havmg 
preserved for the future a record of the county's activities in the 
World War has made possible the publication of this book. 

The compilation has been a task accompanied by many and 
varied difficulties and the publisher desires to thank all who con- 
tributed in any way to its successful conclusion. A determined 
effort was made to secure the photo and record of every service man 
from the county. To this end extensive newspaper publicity was 
given : thousands of letters were mailed out and numerous personal 
interviews sought. In every instance where it has been at all pos- 
sible during four months of concerted effort to secure the necessary 
data that soldier's photo and record appear in the book. 

In response to requests for photographs almost every possible 
type of portraits was received from faded snapshots to enlargements 
and it was necessary to rephotograph each in order to secure uni- 
formity in size and proper grouping. Included in the volume are 
the men and women who entered the service from Cass County 
whether or not their home is in the county at the present time and 
also those who have moved into the county since their return from 
war. There are in addition a few who entered the service from 
other counties and states but whose homes are in Cass County. 



INTRODUCTION 



Not often does a state have the chance to fight for a principle really 
vital to the human race. When such an opportunity comes, a com- 
monwealth lives its heroic age. In April, 1917, fate gave Iowa 
her chance to strike a blow for human rights and democracy, and 
her response was noble. From Cass County nearly a thousand men, 
the flower of her manhood, entered the service. Many of these 
boys helped stop the mad rush of the Hun at Belleau Wood; they 
drove him back at Chateau Thierry and Cantigny. Like veterans 
they fought and won m Lorraine, at St. Mihiel and in the bitter 
struggle of Argonne-Meuse. They successfully met the challenge 
of the most powerful armies the world ever saw. They shared in 
the most significant victory of all history. By a devotion that has 
won the admiration of the civilized world, they helped make pos- 
sible a new and nobler life for humanity and a truer brotherhood of 
man. We owe it to the future, — we owe it to these men, to pre- 
serve the memory of their heroism.

Company M, One Hundred Sixty -Eighth Infantry, 
Rainbow Division 



In IMarch, 1917, when war clouds were ap- 
pearing on the horizon the attention of many 
Atlantic boys Avas turned toward the impending 
struggle and anxious to have a part they peti- 
tioned the Adjutant General of Iowa for the 
organization of a National Guard company here. 
Owing to the fact that the Third Iowa Regiment 
was tilled the application was denied. A few 
days later Raymond Coker hearing that Com- 
pany M was recruiting to war strength went to 
Red Oak and enlisted in that organization on 
April 4, 1917, two days before war was declared. 

Shortly thereafter Lieutenant Briggs and 
Sergeant Hoke of Company il came to Atlantic 
and recruited a number more of the local boj's. 
They were examined by Dr. C. B. Burke and 
sworn in at his office on April 12, 1917. Several 
othei-s joined them on April 18 and shortly after 
non-commissioned officers of Company M began 
coming from Red Oak twice a week to drill the 
local detachment. 

On July 4 Company M was mobilized at Red 
Oak and the Atlantic boys went into camp there. 
During the following six weeks they had their 
first real toucb of army life ; drilling intensively 
under the direction of Captain Ross they were 
too busy to be troubled with homesickness or 
have any worries about the future. Then on 
August 18 the company was ordered to the Fair 
Grounds at Des Moines where equipment was 
issued and the organization of the regiment com- 
pleted. It was not until the arrival of orders to 
equip the regiment for immediate overseas duty 
that the boys realized they were to be sent to 
France. The news was received with great en- 
thusiasm for all were anxious to get into action 
and have their part in the struggle. 

Passes home were issued only in extreme cases 
and as soon as the news spread that the regi- 
ment was to go to France the fair grounds was 



the mecca for visitors from all parts of tlie state. 
Huudi-eds of the home-folks witnessed the big 
regimental parade staged during the fair. 

On the evening of September 10, 1917, sev- 
eral hundred lads in khaki might have been seen 
lounging about Machinery Hall in full equip- 
ment waiting for the order to entrain. Through- 
out the long cold night they waited and then 
early in the morning the trains arrived and the 
Third Battalion piled aboard and were off on 
the long journey to France. Waving cheery 
farewells they bade good-bye to old Iowa and 
confidently started out on the biggest adventure 
of their lives. 

Arriving at Camp Mills on the afternoon of 
September 13 they marched two miles out to the 
fields where their camp was to be pitched — the 
field as yet uncleaned of brush and weeds. They 
slept out in the open and the next morning set 
about clearing their camp and setting it in or- 
der. Then the steady grind of training began 
and for the next month they had strenuous drill 
day after day. During this time the remainder 
of overseas equipment was issued after which 
they were reviewed by Secretary of War Baker. 
While at Camp Mills all of the boys were grant- 
ed passes to New York City. Ray Phares was 
the only Atlantic man, however, permitted a 
pass to his home, being called there by the seri- 
ous illness of his mother. 

All the men were eager to get started to 
France and at last the happy day came. On 
October 18 the entire regiment went aboard the 
U. S. S. President Grant at Hoboken and at 
midnight slipped out of the harbor. But their 
joj' was short lived for on the fourth day out 
engine trouble developed and it was necessary 
to turn back. They arrived back at Camp Mills 
in a pouring rainstorm on the night of October 
27. The camp was flooded but the boys made 



CASS COUNTY 



tlie most of it and began tlie old camp life 
again. 

After a eonple of weeks more drilling the 
third battalion sailed again on the afternoon of 
November 14 aboard the White Star liner Celtic. 
A stop was made at Halifax and one day was 
spent in the harbor at Dublin on account of 
submarines operating in that vicinity. The bat- 
talion landed at Liverpool on December 1 and 
boarded trains immediately for Winchester 
where thev spent a week in a rest camp. On 
the afternoon of December 8 they went aboard 
a channel steamer at Southampton, arriving in 
Le Havre the following morning. A few days 
were spent at the rest camp there and on De- 
cember 11 the troops entrained for Kimaucourt 
in the Lorraine sector, arriving there two days 
later. 

Here the company got their first touch of the 
real hardships of war. Although the weather 
was very cold the men were billeted in barns and 
for several weeks thej' were unable to get sup- 
plies of any kind. Despite insufficient clothing 
and very meagre food supplies training contin- 
ued through all kinds of weather. French of- 
ficers were attached and during these long 
dreary weeks the boys received their beginning 
lessons in trench warfare. It was under these 
conditions that the Cass County boys spent their 
first Christmas in France and needless to say 
there were many evidences of homesickness. 

It was at Rimaucourt that the first death in 
the company occurred. Norbert Wilson of El- 
liott succumbed to an attack of scarlet fever on 
January 5, 1918, after a short illness. 

On January 31 the company marched to Voi- 
sines, where they camped until February 12. 
They proceeded to Rolanpont and then went by 
train to near Baccarat where they were billeted 
in a village until the evening of March 8. On 
the evening of the eighth the company marched 
up to a position just back of the front line and 
early the following morning went into the 
trenches. Company il along with Company F 
went over the top at 5 p. in. after a four-hour 
preparatory bombardment. It was during this 
bombardment that Cecil Conley and Fred 



Turner were killed. The raid, lasting an hour, 
was successful and several prisoners were taken. 
Tlie company retui'ned to the rear camps that 
night. 

Company ~Sl suffered several casualties dur- 
ing this first raid and the loss of their comrades 
while sobering the men made them more anxious 
to get back into action and get another chance 
at the Huns. 

Three days later the company went back into 
the lines for permanent duty, and during the 
months that followed spent eight days at a time 
in the trenches and were then relieved for eight 
days. Lloyd ]\Iorrill was killed on March 18 and 
Max Hubbell was killed instantly by our own 
barrage on ^Ihv 15. 

Till' regiment was relieved on June 20 after 
spending three months in the front lines and 
then proceeded to Thayon where they entrained 
for the Champagne front, unloading near 
Suippes on June 23. They started for the lines 
on July 1 and went into the second line of 
trenches on the evening of July 4. Here they 
remained on the defensive without much excite- 
ment until the night of July 14 when the Ger- 
man offensive was launched along the entire 
western front. 

For four hours our boys witnessed what is re- 
puted to have been the most terrific bombard- 
ment put over by the Germans during the entire 
war, but the German infantry pusli failed to 
reach the second lines and their offensive in that 
sector promptly failed. The 168th remained 
here until Jul.y 20th when they were withdrawn 
and hurried to the Chateau Thierry sector, go- 
ing into the lines near Fere-en-Tardenois on 
July 26. On July 28th they were engaged in 
some of the fiercest fighting of the war which re- 
sulted in the capture of Sergy and Hill 212. 
None of the Cass County boys were killed in 
this engagement but several were wounded, 
among them Irmin Spence, Earl Kirk, Harold 
Kjar, and Paul Kirk. 

After continuous fighting for more than a 
week the regiment was relieved on August 5 and 
then camped for ten days in woods near Pere- 
en-Tardenois. Here much sickness developed 



-^ -.<- IN THE WOI^LD'wAR > 



aiul many were sent bai'k to the hospitals. After 
a long march the regiineut detrained at La Ferte 
on August 20 for Chaumont-la-Ville where it 
was expected they would rest for a niontii. But 
after new equipment had been issued and re- 
placements received they started on a ten-day 
march to the St. Mihiel sector. 

The regiment went into the lines again on the 
evening of September 11 and over the top the 
following morning. The 42nd Division was in 
the eenti'al part of the advance with the third 
battalion of the 168th, taking the brunt of tlie 
tight, and there were many casualties dui'ing 
the day. Phil Brooks of Atlantic fell in the 
eai'ly morning conflict. The regiment reached 
its objective ahead of time and dug in. Here 
they remained on the defensive until September 
27 when they were relieved and after resting a 
few days started for the Argonne, going by 
truck a part of the way and marching the re- 
mainder. 

October 12 found our boys again in the lines 
participating in the offensive movement that 
stopped only after the Germans had been driven 
back to Sedan. The regiment was relieved on 
November 10th and received the news of the 
armistice while on the march to the rear. 
Though worn out by weeks of continued fighting 
the men were not too tired to celebrate the 
victory. 

The troops went into camp near Buzanc.y 
where thej- remained until November 19 when 
the start on the long hike to Germany was made. 
The route of march led them into Belgium and 
through Luxembourg. They rested over Thanks- 
giving at Eischen, Luxembourg. Thanksgiving 
was a big day for the men enjoyed the first real 
feed in many months. This Thanksgiving din- 
ner was a gift from the ladies at Atlantic and it 
brought joy and happiness to the hearts of many 
weary soldiers that day. 

The march was resumed on December 1 and 
after many long tiresome day.s of hiking they 
arrived at Nieder Zissen, Germany, on Decem- 
ber 16. Good billets were provided here and 
the boys settled down to comfoi'table living once 
again. In February the third battalion was 



moved to Nieder Brcisig on the Rhine where it 
remained until starting for home. 

Though comfortably located in Germany it 
was but a few weeks until a spirit of unrest ap- 
peared and the boys began wondering when 
they would start homeward. It was not until 
April that the long-looked-for orders arrived 
and on April 9 the regiment entrained for the 
good (lid r. S. A., arriving in Brest on April 12. 
Six days later they sailed for home on the Levi- 
athan, ;irriving in Hoboken April 25. After a 
frw days at Camp Merritt they started on the 
last lap of the journey west, arriving in Des 
;\Ioines on the evening of ]May 1-1. The follow- 
ing afternoon thousands of the home-folks . 
cheered the boys as they marched through Des 
iloines in their last regimental parade, and dur- 
ing the three days that followed our youthful 
heroes were fused back into civilian life. 

The nation will ever be grateful to the men 
of the Forty-Second Division including our own 
Company M boys for the magnificent manner in 
which they upheld the fighting traditions of 
their country on that far away battle line. 
Their record will henceforth forever constitute 
one of the most brilliant pages in the military 
history of America. ^Modern warfare in its 
tragic intensity has little of the glamour and 
glory of battle in the days gone by; the stern 
demands of the modern military machine re- 
quire the full measure of physical endurance 
and privation on the part of the individual and 
few people except those who experienced it can 
ever appreciate the sacrifices of that band of 
fifty-one boys of Company il who went out of 
Cass County in the early days of the war. 

ilere boys, most of them, they shouldered 
their guns and after a few brief weeks of train- 
ing crossed three thousand miles of water to a 
foreign land and took their place among the 
first American troops to participate in that 
tragic line where soldiers of many nations were 
locked in a death struggle. Day after day of 
heavy marching under the weight of a ponder- 
ous equipment ; at times very scantily clothed 
and fed ; night after night of wearisome waiting 
and watching in wet and muddy trenches; the

exposure suffered during' weeks of inelement 
weather all added to 1lie luirdsliips and terrors 
of battle, with the uiuMTtainty of life itself pre- 
dominant and the honicsirkucss incident to for- 
eign conditions and surroundinjis made the ex- 
istence of our boys anything but fascinating. 

The people of Cass County owe a debt of grat- 
itude to the boys of Coiiiiiauy :\1 wliich can only 
be paid by the appn-ciation of the services tliey 
performed for their eountiy. Some of them 
gave their lives; othei-s will beai' iihvsiual im- 



pediments throughout the years ; the.y all gave 
two of the best years of their life to the cause 
of human liberty everywhere. Financial remu- 
neration cannot compensate for such service 
even were it desired but they and their friends 
can always have the satisfaction of knowing that 
when their country's call came they answered 
quickly and gave splendid, heroic service to the 
end. The citizens of Cass County can well be 
proud of the boys of Company ]\I.

r/ie Boys of '61- '68 



Cass County was at its comparative infancy 
in 1861 at the outbreak of the Civil War. But 
its citizenship was intensely loyal to the Union 
and the eall for troops received a hearty re- 
sponse. 

Compared with the upward of a thousand 
men who entered the world war from this coun- 
ty the record it made in the civil war was one in 
which it may well feel proud. Cass County's 
population in the period from '61 to '65 was 
only a fraction of what it is at present. The 
voting strength of the county was about 350. 
Today it has about 4400. Yet Cass County sent 
to the Union army approximately 160 men. Of 
that number twenty-two gave their lives, five 
falling on the field of battle. These five were 
Captain J. C. Brown, George Rose, Patrick 
Archer, :\I. L. Littlefield and William R. Terry. 

Practically all of Cass County's soldiers in 
the civil war served in the Fourth and Twenty- 
third Regiments of Iowa infantry. Company I 
of the Twenty-third Iowa Infantry was com- 
posed entirely of Cass County men. 

Just as the One Hundred and Sixty-eighth of 
the Rainbow Division in the world war has 
brought undying glory to Iowa, so did the 
Fourth and Twenty-third Regiments bring fauu^ 
to the commonwealth in the sixties. 

The Fourth Regiment was mustered in at 
Council Bluffs in August, 1861, under the com- 
mand of Grenville il. Dodge. It became at- 
tached to the Army of the Southwest and took 
part in some of the most bloody and momentous 
battles of the Civil War. It was at Pea Ridge, 
Chickasaw Bayou, Yicksburg, Lookout iloun- 
tain, ^Missionary Ridge, Resaca, Kenesaw Moun- 
tain and Atlanta. The part played by the 
Fourth at all these points brought added luster 
to their banner. No wonder the people of the 
state were delirious with joy when the regiment 
came home in February, 1864, for a short rest. 
But it was a shattered remnant of the regiment 
that reached Des ]\Ioines in that month. The 



ravage of battle had thinned its ranks. .Many 
of the men, including soine from Cass County, 
were in their graves in the Southland. When 
the regiment reached Des ?il()incs the Legislature 
held a reception for the fightfi's and from all 
parts of the state relatives and friends flocked 
to Des IMoines to welcome tlie eon(|ueriug lieroes. 
In April the regiment re.joined the Union forces 
in the South and became a part of Sherman's 
army, taking part in the famous "' march to the 
sea". In ^lay, 1865, the regiment participated 
in the grand review at Wasliington and was 
mustered out at Dav<'nport ;i few days later. 
It had marched 5000 miles and participated in 
thirty-six engagements. 

Adding to the glory of Cass County was the 
work of the Twenty-third Regiment. Company 
I of this regiment was made up exclusively of 
Cass County men. The company left the county 
in charge of Capt. James R. Coe. He later re- 
signed because of ill health and was succeeded 
by Second Lieutenant J. C. Brown. The latter 
was killed in the fighting at Jlilliken's Bend on 
June 7, 1863. He was in turn succeeded by 
John J. Van Houten who had entered the com- 
pany as first sergeant. The Twenty-third was 
at Andei-son's Hill, Black Kiver Ridge and all 
the prominent engagements which preceded the 
fall of Vicksburg. After the capitulation of 
Yicksburg the regiment participated in the en- 
gagements at Jackson, Ft. Esperenza and Span- 
ish Fort. It was mustered out of the service at 
Harrisburg, Texas, July 26, 1865. 

Cass County's honor roll in the civil war con- 
tained the following names: Fred W. Huraer- 
ick, David Watson, William R. Collette, Japheth 
Ball, Capt. J. C. Brown, Lieut. G. B. Kilpat-

CASS COUNTY 



The Fifty-First Iowa Infantry 



The Fifty-first Iowa Volunteer Infantry in 
whicli most of the Cass County men saw service 
in the Spanisli-Amerieau War was largely made 
up of the old Third Iowa National C4uard Regi- 
ment. The regiment was mobilized at the State 
Fair Grounds in Des Moines April 26. 1898 ; re- 
organization was effected and the regiment mus- 
tei-ed into the national service. The camp was 
known as Camp .McKinley and here the com- 
panies recruited to war .strength and drilled un- 
til June 5th when they departed for San Fran- 
cisco, arriving on the 10th. 

Training continued here at Camp ^Merritt as a 
part of the Third Brigade under General Harri- 
son Gray Otis until July 18th when the regiment 
was joined to the Second Brigade ami on July 
29th transferred to the Presidio. 

Although the peace protocol was signed in 
August the regiment was retained in the service 
and continued to drill until Xoveud)er when 
they were ordered to the Philippines. On Xo- 
vendier 3 they embarked on the Pennsylvania 
for the long trip. After a short stop at Hono- 
lulu the voyage was resumed and the regiment 
arrived in ^Manila on the morning of December 7 
after a trip of 6.990 miles. 

The regiment remained aboard the Peun.syl- 
vania in Manila harbor until Deeeml)er 26th 
when they were ordered to proceed to lloilo, 
capital of the island of Panay, which had been 
occupied by the insurgents. Arriving there on 
the 28th the men had hopes of an early landing 
but were destined to disappointment for the at- 
tack on the city was withheld. For another 
month they remained on board in the harbor of 
Iloilo and then on January 29th the Pennsyl- 
vania proceeded northward, arriving back in 
Manila bay on the morning of January 31st. 
On February ."ith the last of the troops dis- 
embarked. 



It was a happy day for the boys M'hen they at 
last set foot on land after spending more than 
three months, ninety-three days in all. aboard 
the Pennsylvania amid the discomforts and mo- 
notonous inactivity of ship life. It was an 
extraordinary fact that in all that time not a 
death had occurred in the regiment. 

The troops settled down again to camp life in 
their barracks at Cavite, just across the bay from 
^lanila. There were freriuent skirmishes with 
the insurgents dui-ing the days that followed 
until February 18 when the First Battalion was 
ordered to [Manila to participate in the defense 
of the city. Soon after the other battalions 
were ordered into action and during the months 
that followed the Fifty-first Iowa was in the 
thick of the fighting. 

The campaign against the insurgents was long 
and beset M'ith many complications. The topog- 
raphy of the country was favorable to the guer- 
rilla warfare to which the Filipinos resorted and 
although they were always unsuccessful against 
the American forces our boys suffered frequent 
casualties. Unused to the extreme climate of 
the islands many succumbed to disease and the 
ranks were considerably thinned when the regi- 
ment returned to ilanila on September 6, 1899. 

Preparations were immediately begun for the 
homegoing voyage and on September 22 the reg- 
iment sailed on the transport Senator, the last 
of the U. S. volunteer forces to leave the islands. 
Stops were made at Nagasaki, Japan, and at 
Yokohama and shore leave was granted to the 
men. The regiment reached San Francisco 
October 22 and was mustered out a few days 
later. 

The Iowa boys of "98 upheld the fighting tra- 
ditions of the state. No volunteer regiment saw 
longer or more difficult service and Cass County 
bovs had their full share in the work.

-WORLD WAR

The Cass County Soldiers' Monument 



The idea of Cass Coimty soldiers' momunent 
originated witli Cyrus B. Osborne of Atlantic, 
Civil War veteran and pioneer of the couut.y. 
It was he who in the eai-ly part of 1915 suggest- 
ed that steps be taken to secure the neeessarj' 
funds for such a memorial. 

During the summer the Board of Supervisors 
took the necessary legal steps to appropriate the 
unused and accumulating portion of the sol- 
diers' relief tax to the cost of a monument. 
This could be done under the provision made by 
the Iowa general assembly. The necessary reso- 
lution was adopted by tlie board on October 9, 
1915. 

Under the provisions of the resolution the 
board was to name three of its members to act 
with three members of the Soldiers' Relief Com- 
mission. These six men were to constitute the 
monument committee having in charge the selec- 
tion of the site, the employment of an architect 
and the supervision of the erection of the monu- 
ment. This committee as originally constituted 
was composed of A. Biggs, G. A. Goeken, and 
A. C. Highley of the Board of Supervisors and 
A. E. Proctor, F. H. Sears, and J. S. Pressnall 
of the Soldiers' Relief Commission. County 
Auditor C. E. Kringle was made secretary of 
the Commission. On the retirement of ^lessrs. 
Biggs and Goeken as members of the Board of 
Supervisors their successors, W. D. Bell and D. 
J. Bode, became members of the committee. J. 
S. Pressnall resigned and was succeeded by P. 
M. Nutter. 

The foundation of the monument was laid in 
the city park in September, 1916. It has been 
determined that a sum not to exceed $25,000 
should be expended for the monument. Edward 
A. Pryor of Postville, Iowa, was selected as the 
architect. He supervised the construction of 
the monument from the laying of the first stone 
to the placing of the figure on the apex thereof. 
The contract for the erection of the memorial 



was given to J. 0. AVilkcn of Atlantic. The 
foundation was laid by the Kimbalton Construc- 
tion Co. of Atlantic. The monument was com- 
pleted in ilay, 1919, and dedicated July 10, 
1919. 

As it stands today it is the most beautiful and 
elaborate county soldiers' monument between 
the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains. 
It is a memorial to the soldiers and sailors of all 
wars preceding the world war. The list includes 
all veterans who entered the service from Cass 
County, those who are buried in the county, and 
those living in the county at the time of the 
erection of the monument. It is a monument 
to the living as well as the dead. Having been 
conceived prior to the entrance of America in 
the world war it is not intended to be the coun- 
ty's memorial to the men who served in the last 
conflict. 

From the speech of Hon. Robert G. Cousins 
at the dedicatory exercises, July 10, 1919 : 

"Wliat mind can compass and what lips can 
utter the thrilling story so eloquently condensed 
by this majestic column for the generations who 
so happily behold it, and for all who will enjoy 
the heritage provided and defended by the men 
whose names it bears? 

"Ah, men and women of this commercial and 
indulgent age, in the midst of memories of our 
might and immortal past, and in contemplation 
of our unexplored but powerfully promising fu- 
ture, how many realize their obligations to our 
institutions for the sacrifices which they have 
cost? The forefathers did not find them here, 
like the air they breathed and the water they 
drank. They were toiled for and defended, 
blood bought and so far, thank God, 'untom by 
usurpation'. 

"A mighty mind once said, 'The centuries 
look down upon us', but the presence of memo- 
ries Avitnessed by this towering testimonial 
mighty in its grace and beautiful exceedingly. 



?li'?:"-tE?=r==

CASS COUNTY 



the most consrientious modesty and <iratitude 
may well believe that the centuries lift up their 
eyes to this crowning tigure of justice and trans- 
cendant beauty bestowing wreaths upon the 
heads and memorj^ of those who in the hour of 
mortal need offered the supreme sacrifice for the 
dearest hope of all ages — righteous, constitu- 
tional, representative government — in which all 
responsible enlightpncd citizens [larticipate 
alike. 



"This mighty, graceful monument taking its 
place as the masterpiece from the Mississippi to 
the Rockies has been dedicated in far greater 
fashion than our words can do, and as for the 
designer, it is well that genius can lift a name 
so high and worthily Mobile yet he lives. 

"The citizens of Cass County, doing a great, 
deserved and noble honor have unselfishly done 
nmch honor to themselves and to the nation."

HOME ACTIVITIES 

It is the purpose in the following pages to present the story of the 
efforts of the home-folks during the long wearisome months when 
the energies of the nation were directed toward doing everything 
possible to back up the millions of boys who had donned the khaki 
and gone forth to war. 

It is a splendid and significant fact that those who had to stay 
behind responded magnificently to every call, and in the following 
record an attempt has been made to set forth briefly the results of 
their efforts and to give credit wherever it was conspicuously due. 
It should be borne in mind, however, that this record has been com- 
piled nearly a year after the conclusion of the war and in many 
cases it has been impossible to get complete data regarding certain 
activities or to secure complete lists of committees. 

There have undoubtedly been omitted names of active workers 
and important activities because of the fact that records have been 
misplaced or destroyed and the complete story thus made unavail- 
able for present purposes. The scope of home war work was so 
wide and the responses from all sides so unanimous that it would 
seem that the name of almost every citizen might appear on the 
honor roll of some activity. But an earnest effort has been made 
to compile from the present available data a concise record of the 
citizen-soldier's activities through various organizations and this 
section is presented in a spirit of appreciation of work well done.

The Red Cross 



The a^>e(l goverudr of one of the battered 
and stricken French provinces said that while 
the efficient American army had brought to 
the French a vision of America's greatness it 
remained for the Red Cross to reveal Amer- 
ica's heart. 

Probabh' no bit of pleasantness concerning 
his army experiences will remain in tlie heart 
of the American soldier longer than the mem- 
ory of the kindly interest displayed for his 
welfare by the Red Cross wherever he went. 
]\Iort particularly does he remember the cups 
of coffee and sandwiches after he had ridden 
interminable hours, cramped, cold and un- 
comfortable aboard a Fi'cnch troop train ; and 
the wounded and sick will never forget the 
magnificent work of tlie Red Cross in the hos- 
pitals, where representatives were always on 
hand to comfort and minister to the suffering. 
The scope of the Red Cross work was so 
far-reaching that practically everyone in the 
army was benefited in some way by its exist- 
ence. In addition there was the tremendous 
amount of relief and refugee work throughout 
Europe, — a work which has won for the 
American Red Cross the admiration and grat- 
itiide of the world. 

The Cass County Chapter of tlie American 
Red Cross was organized at a public meeting 
held in Atlantic ilay 2, 1917, at which Rev. 
Elias Handy acted as temporary chairman 
and ;\Irs. E. C. Crawford, temporary secre- 
tary. This meeting resulted in securing a 
charter for a county organization and soon 
after the following county officers were cho- 
sen:

The people of the county responded mag- 
nificently to the woi'k of the Red Cross. 
County headquarters when work rooms were 
opened in the Commercial Club at Atlantic 
and the work of making bandages, surgical 
dressings and garments began with unlimited 
volunteers responding and continued un- 
abated until the clo.se of the war. 

In the membership drives and campaigns 
for funds hundreds of workers volunteered 
their services: the response to appeals for 
money were met with success on every side 
and never for a moment was the Avhole-heart- 
ed loyalty of the people for the Red Cross in 
doubt. 

At the close of the Christmas, 1917, cam- 
paign 8620 member.s had been enrolled in the 
county and the following year approximately 
the same nundier was enrolled. During the 



HO.ME SERVICE SECTION 

Eai'ly in lOlS the Home Service Section of 
tiie Cass County Chapter, AmeiMcan Red 
Cross, was organized. This department was 
the last department authorized by the Na- 
tional Red Cross, its object being the care of 
the families of men in the service in order 
that no family .should suffer or be obliged to 
lower its standard of living because the man 
or men of the family were serving their coun- 
try. The services advised by the National 
organization were friendly visits, advice, med- 
ical and hospitiil cai'e wlieii necessary, and 
mon(>y relief in the foriii of allowances, grants 
or loans. 

T. C. Whiteiuore. chairman; M. C. Cardio, 
Dr. C. Y. Wilder, Mrs. A. A. Gillette and .Mrs. 
John W. Blake constituted the Home Service 
Committee. 

The duties and efforts of this committee- 
were important and far-reaching. Friendly 
visits were made upon needy families of ser- 
vice men and efforts made to add to their com- 
fort. Cases of delayed allotments and allow- 
ances were investigated; applications for al- 
lotments and allowances were made and re- 
instatement in eases of discontinued allow- 
ance. In case of death of a soldier the family 
was assisted in filling out forms for applica- 
tion for War Risk Insurance, applications for 
compensation for dependents of deceased 
were made and for funeral expenses and for 
return of soldier's effects. 

In cases where family sought information 
regarding their sons in the service this com- 
mittee got in touch with Red Cross aitthori- 
ties wherever the soldier was stationed and 






r

secured immediate reports. A multitude of 
other matters were etifieieutly handled to the 
satisfaction of all concerned by this com- 
mittee. 

Could the women of Cass County who 
sewed and Icnitted during tlie war know of 
the individual joy that their efforts brought 
to the soldier boys they would feci abundant- 
ly repaid for their time and effort. Picture 
a wounded doughboy clad in a pair of new- 
pajamas, resting peacefully between clean 



sheets on a fresh, white bed for the first time 
in many lono weary jnonths ; his wounds 
swathed in sterile bandages made by tender 
and loving hands back home; though his 
wounds pain him his spirit is happy in the 
sweet revelry of comfortable surroundings 
and he drops asleep to dream of mother, sis- 
ters, sweetheart and home.

The Cass County Committee of the Council of National Defense 



The County Council of Defense was the hub 
to the wheel of war activities in Cass County. 
Being the only organization in the county cre- 
ated officially for the sole purpose of carrying 
on the several activities incident to the prosecu- 
tion of the war it naturally became the center 
about which all these many activities revolved. 

The council officially came into existence 
through the appointment of its members by 
Governor William L. Harding on ilay 29, 1917. 
The members were chosen from all i^arts of the 
county and represented all political faiths and 
religious beliefs. 

Immediately after the creation of the council 
by the Governor the members gathered at the 
Commercial Club in Atlantic and organized. At 
this meeting there was a general discussion of 
the duties of the council and a tentative program 
agreed upon. This program included among 
other things the searching out and investigation 
of instances of disloyalty or lukewarmness to- 
ward the prosecution of the war. 

As a result of the activities of the council 
along these lines creditable results were ob- 
tained. Especially was the council an instru- 
ment of good and powerful leverage in the sev- 
eral loan drives. Through its power many de- 
linquent residents of the county were brought to 
see the light and loosen their purse strings. 
Never, however, did it seek to force the buying 
of bonds on any person beyond that individual's 
financial abilitj' to buy. 

One of the big aids which the council proved 
to be in the carrying on of the war activities 
was the moral influence which it possessed and 
the impetus which it gave to the spirit of patri- 
otism in the county. This influence was marked. 
Whenever the stamp of the council was placed 
on any of the several activities that particular 
activity immediately took on new life and be- 
came a success. In the spreading of patriotic 
sentiment throughout Cass County no other 
agency did so much as the defense council. Ev- 
ery member responded heartily to the calls 
placed upon him. 



In the work of investigating instances of pa- 
triotic delinquency the council created later an- 
other and distinct body known as the Committee 
of ^Military Affairs. This committee held numer- 
ous sessions and never was a summons from it 
disregarded. Its work in the placing of feet of 
disloyalists in the path of true Americanism was 
performed in a firm yet reasonable manner and 
a number of persons who had previously refused 
to perform their part in the various war activi- 
ties were made to see the error of their ways. 

As an aid to the work of the County Council 
of Defense there were organized in each of the 
sixteen townships and in several of the towns of 
tlie county, auxiliary councils. These affiliated 
with the parent council and greatly enhanced 
its power. The total membership in these asso- 
ciated councils reached several hundred. To- 
gether with the parent council these associated 
councils made a tremendously powerful body of 
earnest and patriotic citizenship. Its influence 
was felt in a hundred ways and in every part of 
the county.

Liberty Loans 



^leu, material and nioiii-y are the three neces- 
sary elements to the waging of successful war- 
fare. During the summer of 1917 after the 
selective draft had made provisions for unlim- 
ited numbers of men and contracts for enormous 
stores of supplies had been let, it became evident 
that the narional treasury would have to be re- 
plenished. 

It was foreseen that even the increased reve- 
nue derived from war taxes of all kinds would 
not be adecjuate to take care of the ever-increas- 
ing army expenditures and the treasury depart- 
ment found it necessary to launch the first Lib- 
erty Loan campaign. 

The task of raising the first loan and also the 
second which followed a few months later was 
undertaken by the banks of the country. In 
Cass County under the direction of Mr. T. H. 
Whitney and Mr. P. P. Breheny the several 
banks carried on publicity campaigns urging 
the people to subscribe for bonds. The banks 
themselves subscribed for a large share of the 
quota. 

But during the first two campaigns the peo- 
ple of the county were not thoroughly aroused to 
the need of buying bonds and as a consequence 
the county's quota was not raised in either cam- 
paign although ncai-]y a half million dollars 
were subscribed e:icli time. 

As the war progressed government expendi- 
tures increased to a degree unheard of in the 
history of our country and it became necessaiy 
to float the Third Liberty Loan. The banks had 
responded splendidly to the appeal for help dur- 
ing the first two campaigns but in order to 
broaden the scope of interest and increase the 
number of individual bond-holders a new plan 
was promulgated. State liberty loan chairmen 
M^ere appointed who in turn appointed district 
leaders. Robert Wallace of Council Bluffs, head 
of the ninth district, appointed ]\I. P. Conway 
of Atlantic to act as chairman of Cass County. 



Then preparatory to the launching of the 
third campaign Mr. Conway appointed ward 
and township chairmen. Committees were se- 
lected and held meetings at which plans for the 
campaign were perfected. Each township and 
city was assessed a certain portion of the quota 
and in turn each individual's share was approx- 
imated. The campaign was well advertised ;four 
minute speakers were pressed into service and 
after weeks of intensive preparation the Third 
Loan campaign was opened with a rush. 

The county quota was $497,.350 and it was 
evident early in the campaign that the amount 
would be easily raised. The patriotic impulses 
of the people had been stimulated by the woi'k 
of the American army in Prance and they re- 
sponded liberally to the appeals of the workers. 
The campaign progressed with increasing en- 
thusiasm both on the part of the workers and the 
subscribers and the final tally showed that more 
tlKui double the (|U(ita had been raised; 263% 
of tli(> amount askt'd liad been subscribed. 

The result was gratifying to all patriotic citi- 
zens of the county. In only a comparatively 
few cases had it been necessary to use more than 
the ordinary appeal to get subscriptions for the 
amount expected. These cases were diplomat- 
ically handled by the Committee on Military 
Affairs of the Council of Defense with the result 
that in each case the party in question was per- 
suaded to purchase his quota of bonds. 

The same committees made the canvass for 
the Fourth Liberty Loan in October, 1918. 
Despite the crop failure in the covinty and the 
fact that the quota was more than double that 
of the previous loan it was oversubscribed, the 
total reaching 107 per cent of the quota. 

With the war over the Treasury Department 
found it necessary to float the fifth loan to take 
care of army expenses until demobilization. It 
was named the Victory Loan in honor of the 
successful conclusion of the war. Again the 



144 






m THE WOPLD WAR 



fonnty organization was called for work. The 
lack of wartime enthusiasm to give the campaign 
the necessary impetus was probably responsible 
for the failure to raise the full quota althduuh 
most of the committers did excellent work, 
llowcvei', the sum total of the bonds sold during 
the five campaigns exceeded the county's quota 
for the five loans by many thousands of dollars. 
Cass County's record in the Liberty Loan cam- 
l)aigns was mon^ than one hundred per cent. 

It rc(iuii('d a tremendous effort to sell nearly 
live million dollars worth of bonds; it is a record 
of which our citizens can be pioud. All who 
l)artici23ated in any way can jxiint with jii'ide tn 
their achievement. The men and women of the 
various committees gave freely of their strength 
and time without heed of recompense or glory 
in the smallest way. The citizens purchased 
liberally that the big job might be carried on to 
a gldi'ious finish. While the l)()ys were over 
thtTc doing their pai'ticular job tlie folks at 
home wove iiusy raising the c:ish and they did 
tlicii- l)it magniticently.

The Four Minute Men 



The Pour IMiimte .Men was a branch of tlie 
Committee on Public Information appointed 
by the President, whose members were eom- 
mi.ssioned as official speakers in behalf of the 
government to impiti't oflii-ial infoi'ination and 
facts to the people. 

The speakei's appeared chiefly before mo- 
tion picture theater audiences in every city 
of the country and their talks were limited to 
four minutes each. Later during the war the 
seo2>e of the department was enlarged to in-' 
elude ministers, who were commissioned to 
speak before their congregations on official 
sub.jei'ts. The c'liief servii-e, however, was ren- 
dered in the motion picture theaters. 

In Cass County the Four Minute Jlen or- 
ganization was started in -May, litlT, and dur- 
ing the war very effective work was performed 
throughout the county in disseminating in- 
formation during the various campaigns and 
drives. The speakers appeared in the cam- 
paigns for the various Liberty Loans, for the 
Salvation Army drive, for the United War 



AVork drive, Ked Cross campaigns, and in 
addition tliereto assisted the government in 
its campaign for food conservation. 

T. C. Whitmore was chosen county chair- 
man and gave much time and effort in perfect- 
ing the county organization. Following is the 
personnel of the Four IMinute ^len of Cass 
County: Atlantic— C. B. Clovis, B. A. Good- 
speed, John .1. Rapp, H. B. Swan, H. 0. Spel- 
man, J. K. Driver and P. N. Bennett, city 
chairman: Griswold — T. J. Bryant, chairman, 
and R. H. Bell: Anita— E. S. Holton, chair- 
man, Harold Ziegler and B. D. Forshay; 
Jlassena — George Cruise, chairman, and 
Wray Wilson; Marne — Ray Eusden. 

When the organization was disbanded De- 
cendier 24, 1918, and the chairmen honorabl.v 
discharged, the President wrote a special let- 
ter to the Four ]Minute Men thanking them 
and expressing his personal and official grati- 
tude for the service that had l)een rendered 
bv them.

Woman 's Committee of the Council of National Defense 



Early in 1918 the necessity of banding to- 
gether the women of the country for war work 
became apparent and the Woman's Committee 
of the Council of National Defense was organ- 
ized. Mrs. C. G. Walner was appointed chair- 
man of Cass County and Mrs. B. D. Forshay of 
Anita, Mrs. Hugh Reinig of Grisvvold, Mrs. 
Wray Wilson of Massena, and Miss Llayme Fin- 
ley of Atlantic were selected as vice-chairmen, 
each having charge of the four townships in 
their respective corners of the count.y. Mrs. A. 
A. Emigh of Atlantic was named secretary. The 
vice-chairmen appointed a chairman for each of 
her four townships and they in turn chose a 
chairman for each school district in tlie town- 
ship. 

Previous to the time the organization had been 



effected, however, the women of this county had 
done considerable pioneer work in carrying oiit 
the suggestions of the National Food Adminis- 
tration. Several hundred signatures to the 
Hoover Food Pledge Cards had been secured. 
This card was in effect an agreement by the 
signer to abide by the rulings of the Food Ad- 
ministration and aid in the carrying out of the 
program for national conservation of food. The 
woman's committee completed this work and a 
total of 1500 signatures to the Hoover Pledge 
cards were secured. Another important feature 
of the ladies' food conservation work was the 
food exhibit at the county fair of 1918. 

In this connection the county chairman and 
the four vice-chairmen were appointed assistant 
county food administrators and did excellent

A\oik thiougliout the \ ear m that eapacit\ . Mi-s. 
L. T. Spangler wlio acted as chairman of the 
city of Athintic in the Pood Pledge Card cam- 
paign was appointed reporter for the National 
Food Administration and made weekly reports 
on the prices of food commodities in the county. 
Tlie Woman's Committee oifered its services 
for the Third Liberty Loan Campaign and the 
committees made an active canvass in conjunc- 
tion with the committees of the Council of De- 
fense. The towns of the county were organized 
on the block sergeant system which centered the 
responsibility of each committeeman to a cer- 
tain area. Mrs. 0. 0. Conley was the county 
chairman for the loan drive work, and Miss 
Amanda Wissler, chairman for the city of At- 
lantic. The ladies gave unsparingly of their 
time and efforts and aided very mat(M-ially in 
assuring the county's quota. Tlie committee ex- 
tended its work to the Fourth Loan Drive and 
to that of the Victoiy Loan. 

<^n April 6, 1918, a National Weighing and 
Pleasuring Babies Campaign was inaugurated 
to continue for a year. This movement came as 
a result of the discovery of a high rate of defec- 
tives among the young men of draft age. ]\Iany 
of these defects were of a remedial nature had 
the}^ been treated in time and the movement 
proposed a national examination of all children 
under five yeare of age and treatment for those 
found defective. Physicians in the county con- 
ducted the examinations free of charge and com- 
mittei's under the direction of ^Mrs. Willis I\Iiller 
of Atlantic made a canvass and survey of the 
county. 

The work of the Home and Allied Relief Com- 
mittee was carried on under the direction of 
Jliss Amanda Wissler. This committee handled 
all the relief work of the organization that was 
correlated with that of the Red Cross and other 
organizations engaged in relief work. 

The AVoman's Committee coniluctiMl the coun- 
ty drive for Red Cross nurses under the direc- 
tion of ;\liss Alary Adams. The county's quota 
was eh'ven nui'ses. Seven wei'e enrolled although 
several of these were never called for active ser- 



vice. Thirteen entered training during the year 
in hospitals of the county. 

An important feature of the AVoman's Com- 
mittee's work was tlie Home Food Demonstra- 
tion campaign in the interests of food conserva- 
tion. Mi.ss Lucile McRoberts of Charles City 
spent three months in the county in charge of 
these demonstrations and during June, July and 
August of 1918 forty-two demonstrations were 
held in homes, schoolhouscs and pulilic meeting 
l)hices. iliss Jennii' Ward had charge of the 
work of arranging the demonstrations. 

The educational campaign in connection with 
the food conservation work was carried on very 
largely through the excellent work of the four- 
minute women. This committee was composed 
of Aliss Anna Temple, chairman, and ]\Irs. Har- 
old Schrauger, Aliss Gretchen Crawford, Ali.ss 
Edith 'Council, Airs. L. C. Allender, Ali.ss Car- 
I'ie Wilken and Airs. Dr. Thompson. These 
ladies gave addresses in theaters, churches, 
school houses and at many other gatherings and 
performed valuable services for the cause.

The Local Board of Cass County 



Soou after the passage of the Selective 
Draft Law a draft board for each county in 
the state was nominated by the governor and 
appointed by the President of the United 
States. After the -June, 1917, registration the 
local members were instructed to organize 
under the designation "The Local Board of 
Cass County". 

The organization was effected July 3, 1917. 
W. A. McKee was chosen Chairman ; C. E. 
Kringel, Secretary, and Dr. C. L. Campbell, 
physician member. 

This Local Board was assisted in its work 
b.y the following : 

Legal Advisory Board — Judge J. B. Rocka- 
fellow, Atty. C. B. Clovis, and Atty. B. A. 
Goodspeed. 

Associate members Advisory Board — ■ 
Eighty-six men from all parts of the county. 

Twenty registration boards of two men 
each. 

Additional Medical Examiners — Practically 
all the physicians, surgeons and dentists of 
the county. 

District Advisory Board — Cass and Adair 
Counties: Dr. C. E. Thompsen, Chairman; 
Dr. W. S. Greenleaf, Secretary; Dr. U. S. 



Mullins. Eye and Ear Specialist; L. C. Al- 
lender, Dental Specialist. 

Government' Appeal Agent — Atty. T. C. 
Whitemore. 

Corps of Clerks. 

The Local Board had in charge the tremen- 
dous task of registering the men of draft age 
in the three different registrations. This was 
only made possible through the magnificent 
response and patriotic cooperation of officials 
who served on the various registration boards 
of the county. 

But with the first registration over the 
work of the Local Board was just beginning. 
There remained the sending of calls, physical 
examinations, the hearing of exemption 
claims and then finally the selection of the 
various quotas. It is to the credit of the Cass 
County Local Board that its members worked 
faithfully, persistently and fairly in the face 
of all their difficulties and finished the job 
with everyone satisfied. 

The county's first draft quota was an- 
nounced Jiily 20, 1917, and consisted of 140 
men. A call was sent out for 280 men to 
appear before the examining board during 
the three-day period beginning August 2.

The Fuel Committee 



With the advent of a fuel shortage in the 
fall of 1917 it became necessary for the gov- 
ernment to take drastic measures to guarantee 
an equitable distribution of the supply. As a 
result the fuel commission came into existence 
with committees in practically every town and 
city in the country. 

In Cass County the following conuuittee 
was appointed : David Hope, J. B. Jones and 
J. D. Gotf of Atlantic, Charles Shaw, Anita ; 
George Cruise, Massena, and H. K. Forsythe 
of Griswold. 



The dealers in fuel were patriotic and the 
work of the committee was greatly facilitated 
by the willingness of the dealers to comply 
with all fuel regulations. At no time was 
there any serious conflict between the com- 
mittee and the fuel dealei'S. The committee 
also found the consumers anxious and willing 
to comply with any and all suggestions made. 

This committee served throughout the war 
and deserve much praise for tlieir faithful 
and efficient work.

The Food Administration 



The organization of a food administration 
for Cass County was perfected sliortly after 
our entrance into the war. State Food Ad- 
ministrator J. A. Deems of Burlington ap- 
pointed Sam Berry and Ross Lang adminis- 
trators for Cass County. 

The work consisted of local interpretation 
and enforcement of the rulings of the Na- 
tional Food Administration and required a 
large amount of detail and personal investi- 
gation. Many cases of violation of rules were 
reported but very few actual violations were 
discovered when an investigation was made. 

Of far-reaching importance to the com- 
munity was the work of the Price Interpret- 
ing Committee, acting under the jurisdiction 
of the Food Administration. This committee 
was composed of representatives of the whole- 
salers, retailers and consumers and met week- 
ly to discuss local price conditions and fix the 
minimum and maximum local prices on staple 
food commodities. 

The committee was furnished weekly re- 
ports from Washington relating to general 
price conditions and they then made the nec- 
essary local adaptations, fixing reasonable 
margins of profit, thus rendering impossible 
any attempt at food protiteering.

Ihe Y. M. C. A. 



The first county drive for welfare work 
funds in the World War was made bj' the 
Y. M. C. A. in October of 1917 in which a 
total of $17,067 was raised, several thousand 
dollars more than the quota for this county. 

il. B. Nelson was named county chairman 
and Harry Cavenaugh was selected as treas- 
urer. At a meeting of workers from various 
parts of the county in Atlantic which was 
called in August by the chairman plans were 
laid for the campaign and a systematic can- 
vass of the county was made by the commit- 
tees appointed at this time. 



Tills campaign was in connection with the 
raising of a ten million dollar fund by the 
Y. ^1. r. A. for its war work. Beginning with 
a few huts in army camps this work grew until 
there were hundreds of Red Triangle huts in 
the camps and cantonments in the United 
States and likewise scattered over France 
wheri'vei- American troops were quartered. 
Tlie Amei'iean soldier boy was practically 
never without the Y. ]\I. C. A. and a splendid 
service was performed by it. 



The Y. W. C. A. 



A very important work was carried on by 
the Young Women's Christian Association 
during the war in providing hostess houses 
with canteens at army camps and looking 
after the interests of the women war workers. 
When the soldier's mother, sister or sweet- 
heart came to camp to visit him the Y. W. 
C. A. provided a comfortable place near camp 
where he could entertain them and the hostess 
houses provided for a need that no other or- 
ganization attempted to meet. 

At home and abroad the Y. W. C. A. did 
much good work in providing rest rooms for 
women welfare workers and nurses and in 
many ways contributed to their comfort and 
happiness. 

While there was no Y. W. C. A. organiza- 
tion in this community the ladies of the coun- 
ty felt the need of assisting in carrying on 



tlie important war work and they perfected 
an organization to assist in raising funds for 
tlie Association war work. 

Mrs. W. F. Graham was made county chair- 
man; Mrs. P. I. Appleman, secretary, and 
]\riss ]\Iary Adams, treasurer. City and town- 
ship chairmen were appointed and they in 
turn selected school district workers. Par- 
ticipating in the national drive for funds in 
December, 1917, this organization raised 
.$1709, exceeding the quota by $559. It was a 
distinctive effort deserving the commendation 
of all who participated. 

No other drive was made until the United 
War Work drive of 1918 in which the Y. W. 
C. A. quota was included with the others and 
here again the women of the county did splen- 
did work in helping raise the quota.

The Knights of Columbus 



The initial effort of the Knights of Cohim- 
bus of Cass County in Avar welfare work was 
made in July, 1917, when Atlantic Council 
1164 with 281 members raised $432 in the 
national campaign among Knights of Colum- 
bus members for a million dollars to be ex- 
pended for war work. 

This national effort resulted in the building 
of welfare houses in the army camps and can- 
tonments and the employment of a large 
force of secretaries to look after the work. 
Later the activities were extended to aid in 
looking after our army in France and pro- 
viding comforts and welfare homes for the 
bovs over there. 



This widening in the scope of the work 
made necessary another campaign for funds 
and in October and November of 1917 another 
campaign among Catholic people generally 
was directed under the auspices of the Knights 
of Columbus. Committees under the direc- 
tion of T. P. Breheny, chairman, from the 
local council, made a concerted canvass of the 
county, raising $2182. 

Later the organization of the National 
Catholic War Work Council was perfected, 
taking charge of all welfare work and the 
Knights of Columbus cooperated under its 
direction in the United War Work campaign 
and other war activities. 



The Public Library 



During the time the United States Avas en- 
gaged in war the government used the Public 
Libraries as important agents for general pub- 
licity. The pamphlets on food conservation 
sent from Washington and Ames were care- 
fully put into the hands of leaders and direc- 
tors of the conservation work. Recipes for 
war cooking were constantly being distributed 
through the library and posters urging the 
people to conserve were prominently dis- 
played. 

Special emphasis was placed on children's 
work during the Avar. One of the earliest ef- 
forts Avas the display of a beautiful picture of 
Joan of Arc which led to many repetitions of 
the story of her life to the children. Special 
efforts were made to keep them interested and 
instructed through the display of bright bul- 
letins and posters. Instruction was given in 
knitting for the children and they Avere then 



taken to the Red Cross rooms for encourage- 
ment and furtlier Avork. 

Throughout the war the library Avas made a 
place of meeting for committees and an effort 
put forth to furnish them with desired data. 
At all times the best and most reliable books 
and information on the war Avas made easily 
accessible to the reader and articles of timely 
interest in the newspapers and magazines 
made available. 

The call for books by the American Library 
Association Avas answered by the library. At 
one drive 2500 vohimes Avere collected from 
over the county and sent to France. In addi- 
tion hundreds of magazines were shipped to 
Ft. Des Moines and other camps, and maga- 
zines were given to soldiers leaving and pass- 
ing through on trains. Throughout the war 
j\Iiss Mary Adams, the librarian, did splendid 
work in directing the efforts of the library 
along the line of war activities.

The American Legion 



Nearly a thousand delegates of all ranks 
from private to brigadier general met in 
Paris. France, on IMareh 15, 1919, for the 
purpose of obtaining the views of the service 
men abroad on the general proposition of or- 
ganizing the patriotism of the men of the 
service so that it might not be lost to America 
after the war. 

There attended the meeting representatives 
of all combat divisions and every S. 0. S. 
branch of the American Expeditionary 
Forces. A tentative constitution was out- 
lined and it Avas suggested that the new or- 
ganization be known as the American Legion 
although no permanent action was taken in 
the matter. An executive committee of one 
hundred members was appointed to take steps 
to call another meeting in St. Louis in ]\Iay. 

At the St. Louis meeting ]\Iay 8, 1919, 
Henry D. Lindsay of Texas was chosen per- 
manent chairman and the convention ratified 
the tentative constitution drawn up in Paris. 
An executive committee of one hundred was 
appointed to act in conjunction with the 
Paris committee in proceeding with the 
further national organization of the Amer- 
ican Legion through state branches and local 
posts. The delegates voted to hold the First 
Annual Convention in I\Iinneapolis, ;\Iinn., 
November 10, 11, 12. 

The following preamble to the Constitution 
of the American Legion states clearly the 
purposes for which it was organized : 



and nation; to comliat tlie autocracy of lioth the 
classes and tlie masses; to make right the master of 
might; to promote peace aud good will on earth; to 
safeguard and transmit to posterity the principles of 
instiee, freedom and democracy; to consecrate and 
sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual 
helpfulness.
