Introduction 

THE belief that every citizen of Aurora, Illinois, may 
well he proud of the glorious record of our city during 
the World's War and that its achievements deserve to 
be perpetuated in the years to come, has caused this book to 
be compiled. 

Thirty-six hundred men and women, ten per cent of its 
population, not only answered the call to arms, but performed 
deeds of valor on land and sea, even to the extent of giving 
their lives for the preservation of our beloved nation. 

Aurora men and women took an active part in all branches 
of the service, from the private and "gob" to the positions of 
Major General and Rear Admiral, besides being engaged in 
every line of important work connected with the successful 
ending of the war. 

At home, the second line of defense was maintained by 
such a high degree of patriotism toward the whole nation and 
loyalty to its warriors on the field that all may point with 
pride to the fact that every proposition, tending in the slight- 
est degree to "finish the job" to the satisfaction of the Amer- 
ican people, was quickly and effectually put "over the top" in 
record time. 

The author gratefully acknowledges the valuable assistance 
rendered by many Aurora citizens in the work of preparing 
this book. 

It has been the author's earnest endeavor to compile a 
complete and correct history of Aurora's part in the war and 
to omit nothing, but if anything worthy of commendation has 
been overlooked, it is due to inadvertence and not intention. 

J. W. GRRENAWAY.

This beautiful lyric of the war was written by 
Lieutenant Colonel Dr. John McCrae of Montreal, 
Canada, while the second battle of Ypres was in 
progress. 

The author's body now lies buried in Flanders 
fields. 

As an inspiration to war giving and war sacri- 
fice, it strikes a major note. There is no war 
appeal to which it is not applicable.

The French "75" "Aurora" 



This French "75" cannon christened "Aurora" by Battery D, 124th Field Artil- 
lery, 33rd Division, to which it was attached, did itself proud during the great war 
with a record of 4860 shots of shrapnel and high explosive shells at the German forces 
despite the fact that twice it was put out of commission by shots from the Hinden- 
burg line. 

This picture was taken just after the famous gun had been repaired the second 
time by the 108th Mobile Ordnance Repair Shop unit of the 33rd Division and was 
being sent back to Bat. D, 124th Field Artillery to finish up the Argonne fight. 

Both times the "Aurora" was forced to quit the game it was evacuated and luck- 
ily its repair fell to the lot of the 108th Mobile Ordnance Repair unit, of which Frank 
Haver of Aurora was First Srgt. Under rush orders Srgt. Haver had all of 
his crew work continuously until the "old bird" was again ready for action and 
taken back to its place in Battery D. Srgt. Haver can be seen kneeling in front of 
the gun. Srgt. Hayer is the son of Mrs. Ed. Senft; born February 28, 1892, and 
entered service September 21, 1917. He left for Camp Grant, going to the Rock 
Island Arsenal October 16, 1917, later to Camp Logan. Left for overseas May 25, 
1918; was engaged in St. Mihiel offensive and Meuse-Argonne offensive, and was 
discharged May 30, 1919. 

Srgt. Hayer was commissioned 2nd Lieut. June 27, 1919. Ordnance Dept., Re-

Third Illinois Leaves 



At 8:45 o'clock on the morning of September 13, 1917, the Third Illinois Infan- 
try, the heroes of the Porto Rico campaign of the Spanish American War in 1898, 
and of the Mexican Campaign of 1916, under the command of Col. Charles Greene, 
marched out of the Regimental Armory on its first lap of the journey to France. 

Headed by members of the Grand Army of the Republic and City officials, the 
Headquarters, Supply, Machine Gun, and D and I companies, composed of 367 of 
Aurora's sons, marched with anxious step through the crowded streets amid the fare- 
well cries of thousands and thousands of relatives and friends to the Burlington 
station to entrain for Camp Logan, Texas 



[184] 




Third Infantry Train 



Twenty thousand people bade adieu to the five companies of the Third Illinois 
Infantry, when it departed from Aurora at 9'o'clock on the morning of September 
13, 1917, for their training camp, Camp Logan, Houston, Texas. Realizing that 
on the five-day journey into the southland, the boys would have scant fare on the 
forty cents a day subsistence furnished by the government, Mrs. J. K. Groom by 
energetic soliciting gathered together and loaded on the train for their use 200 
pounds of roast meat, 668 loaves of bread, 30 pounds of butter, 400 rolls, three boxes 
of crackers, 50 pounds of cheese, 40 cakes, 150 dozen doughnuts, 350 dozen cookies, 
12 gallons of pickles, 40 pounds of chocolate, a great quantity of fruits and gum, 
200 towels and $25 in money to be used in buying hot coffee, so that the Aurora sol- 
diers were able to eat in plenty on the long journey. 



[185] 




The 129th Welcomed Home 

Shortly after 3 o'clock in the afternoon of June 2, 1919, as the whistles and 
bells of the city began to sound in unison throughout Aurora, three great passenger 
trains loaded down with smiling-faced soldier boys, pulled into the Burlington sta- 
tion the famous 129th Infantry the boys whom the fighting Australians pro- 
nounced as "a bit rough" were home, once again in the arms of their relatives and 
friends after being victors over the cream of the German Army and now ready to 
lay aside the weapons of war forever. Sixty thousand people from not only Aurora 
but the whole of the Fox River Valley were here to welcome home this band of 
prairie warriors and fete them the few hours they were to remain in town before 
continuing on to Camp Grant for discharge. Marching through the city with the 
same measured tread and battle equipment with which they marched along the 
Somme River and through the Argonne to meet the Goliath of Europe a few months 
before, they were served with luncheon at West Aurora by the same energetic force 
of Red Cross workers who had for months devoted hours and hours preparing camp 
and hospital equipment for the thousands in the service. Every man in the regi- 
ment was served with sandwiches, fruit, pickles, cake and coffee until they could 
stand no more, when the trains pulled out on its last run to end their war service. 



[186] 




On June 10, 1919, upon their discharge from the service and return home, the 
129th regiment was banqueted in Sylvandell by the 129th Regiment Home Folks 
Association of Aurora, Illinois, the following menu being served under the chair- 
manship of Mrs. J. K. Groom. 

Fruit Cocktail Saratoga Wafers

Citations 

ACCORDING to War Department records, the fighting men and 
units of the army and navy came from the prairie and farming 
section known as the Mississippi Valley, in which Aurora is lo- 
cated. Many of the 3,600 in the service from this town distinguished 
themselves with their commands but we are only able to obtain the fol- 
lowing who were among those cited for exceptional work.

CHRISTIAN JOY PEOPLES 



Rear Admiral, Supply Corps, United States Navy; son of Robert A. and Lydia Love Peo- 
ples; born in Iowa, October 17, 1876; his parents moving to Aurora, the home of their 
birth; the rear admiral received his early schooling in the Brady School of this city; gradu- 
ated from school in California and received his appointment to Annapolis Naval Academy 
after an apprenticeship in the Navy Yard, Mare Island, California, where he won his com- 
mission in the supply corps in a competitive examination. 

He has seen service at the Naval Stations, Mare Island, California, and Puget Sound, Wash- 
ington, and has cruised in Philippine, Japanese and Chinese waters. Ordered to duty in the 
Navy Department, he established the purchase system of the Supply Department of the Navy; 
also the Navy standard specification system and the Navy standard system of supplying coal, 
oil and gasoline for the Fleet. Under the command of Captain William S. Benson, later 
Chief of Naval Operations, he placed the Utah in commission, cruising for three and a half 
years irt Atlantic, Caribbean and Mediterranean waters. During this cruise, he served on the 
staff of Admiral F. F. Fletcher as Commissary Officer during the occupation of Vera Cruz. 

Again ordered to duty in the Navy Department in August, 1914, as Chief Assistant to 
Rear Admiral Samuel McGowan, the Chief of the Supply Department of the Navy, which 
established a record for efficiency during the war, his special duty was the preparation, super- 
vision and execution of the plans for the supply of the Fleet at home and abroad, with all 
that related to the purchase, custody, shipment and issue of clothing, provisions, engineering, 
hull, navigational, ordnance and fuel supplies for the Fleet and for shore stations at home 
and abroad. 

He was also identified with the War Industries Board and was the Navy Representative 
on the Exports Control Committee, whose mission was to connect up the Fleet of cargo vessels 
with the railroads in the shipment of munitions through the various Atlantic range ports (and 
to avoid congestion therein) to our Army in France and to our naval forces in the North 
Sea and in the Mediterranean. 

In January, 1918, the Secretary of the Navy selected him for the permanent rank of Rear 
Admiral in the Supply Corps of the Navy the youngest man upon whom that honor has yet 
been conferred.

Mr. J. W. Greenaway, 
Aurora, Illinois. 

Sir: 

As a testimonial to the patriotism and progressiveness of 
the City of Aurora during the course of the War, this is to 
certify that to the best of our knowledge the greatest per- 
centage of recruits for the Navy from the Central Division 
was obtained from that city. These men were stationed not 
only at the stations ashore, but also performed duty at sea on 
vessels where service was most hazardous. 

Since the War some of these men have remained on active 
service, while those who returned to civil life have found that 
their training while in the Naval Service has been of great 
assistance to them. 

Very truly yours, 

F. R. BERG, Lt. Comdr. U. S. N.

''Gunpowder" Aurora's Pigeon 

Hero 

GUNPOWDER," a black check hen homing pigeon, registered as 
AU-1917-5289, and bred in the loft of Herman Moser, 146 
South Spencer Street, Aurora, Illinois, in June, 1917, has been 
honored by the United States War Department as the bird which car- 
ried the first message from the American front line trenches back to the 
American Divisional Headquarters in France. 

This distinguished honor has been conferred upon "Gunpowder," by 
official report of Capt. J. L. Carney, which states the message was car- 
ried March 17, 1918, from a point north of Lionville in the Toul Sector 
to Major General Clarence Edwards, commanding the 26th division with 




"GUNPOWDER" 



"PRETTY BABY" 



headquarters at Boucq. Five minutes after "Gunpowder" was dispatched 
with the message, "Pretty Baby," a pigeon bred in New York, was dis- 
patched with a carbon copy of the message, to insure the delivery of the 
message in case the first bird was killed in its flight. Both birds were suc- 
cessful in the delivery of the messages, though "Pretty Baby" was killed 
later by mistake of an American soldier, believing it to be a German bird. 
"Gunpowder" continued carrying messages throughout the war, many 
times through shell and gas battles, and after the armistice, was returned 
to this country, being now located in Capt. Carney's loft at Pittsburgh, 
Pa. 

On October 14, 1917, on orders from the War Department, Herman 
Moser, Aurora's leading pigeon fancier, shipped twenty homing pigeons 
to Fort Wood, New York, from where they were transferred to Bedloe's 
Island for training. Among the twenty birds was the three-month-old 



[212] 



"Gunpowder," whose ancestors had established records for flying over 
1,000 miles. On Dec. 10, 1917, the birds were shipped to France on the 
deck of a small vessel, the only protection offered being a tarpaulin with 
which the four soldiers kept them covered. Landing at St. Nazaire they 
were shipped to a loft in Paris and on February 22 were transferred to a 
loft in Corneville in the Toul Sector for final training. On March 17, 1918, 
Sergeant Swanker was able to supply three trench posts with four birds 
each for liasion service, from the 4,000 birds at the Corneville loft. On 
its arrival at the trenches, "Gunpowder" was immediately dispatched to 
the Divisional Headquarters at Boucq with information. The message 
was in cipher, enclosed in a small tube attached to the left leg, and as per 
regulations a duplicate of the message was sent by a second bird five min- 




FRENCH MOBILE PIGEON LOFT 



utes after. According to the records of the War Department, the hom- 
ing pigeons played a most important part in the war, proving the best 
messengers under battle conditions when it was a difficult task to maintain 
communications in the army. Not one important message entrusted to 
the homing pigeons for delivery went astray during the war. These birds, 
of which there were 1,200 in service in the St. Mihiel and Argonne en- 
gagements, were transported about France in mobile lofts, each contain- 
ing 60 birds. 

Mr. Moser was the only pigeon fancier west of Chicago to furnish 
birds for service in France and later furnished many birds for stocking 
the military lofts at Camp Grant, Municipal Pier, Chicago, Fort Sam 
Houston, Texas, Southern Flying Field, Georgia, and the University of 
Wisconsin at Madison, Wis.

Aurora Chapter, American 
Red Cross 



IN MARCH, 1917, a group of public spirited women, with the mem- 
bers of the "Daughters of the American Revolution," realizing that 
because of the launching of the terrible submarine warfare by the 
German naval authorities against this country, with utter disregard of all 
existing treaties, heretofore made by the German Imperial Government, 
this country would soon be forced to defend its honor with the allied 
nations, met and established a Red Cross workroom in the Y. M. C. A. 
building, with Mrs. J. K. Groom as chairman in direct charge. 







Enlisting the support of the Aurora Elks Club and other public spirited 
and patriotic citizens and organizations in the cause, the interest grew in 
the great work, until by authority of the National Headquarters, the first 
meeting for organizing the Aurora Chapter of the American Red Cross 
was held on May 14, 1917. On May 20th, the work of organization was 
completed with the election of officers, the absorbing of the original work- 
shop organization and the selection of a working committee, composed of 
Mrs. Grace Bliss, Mrs. W. S. Frazier, Mrs. Martha Mathewson, Mrs. 
Charles Stevenson and Miss Louise Aldrich. This working committee was 
later enlarged by adding Mrs. W. E. Gillette, Mrs. F. J. Knight, Mrs. E. 
D. Terry, Mrs. Myra Stolp, Mrs Elizabeth Kapferer, Mrs. Alice Crego, 
Mrs. Esther Chapman, Mrs. Thomas Peaks, Mrs. A. T. Newtson, Miss 
Lucy Carr, Mrs. Maude Thompson and Mrs. Vincent Hatch.

C. S. KILBOURNE 
CHAIRMAN, AURORA CHAPTER RED CROSS 



[218] 



The Aurora Chapter was fully recognized by the National Head- 
quarters on June 20, 1917, and its territorial jurisdiction comprised 
Aurora, Sugar Grove, Big Rock, Kaneville, Blackberry and LaFox, in all 
of which sections branches of the parent organization were soon started.

Organized on a much larger scale than before, the Aurora Chapter now 
secured larger quarters to carry on the work, by obtaining from the Re- 
ceiver of the Yeomen of America the former headquarters building of that 
society in Main Street; the campaign committee, under E. F. Schoeberlein, 
launched a campaign for new members throughout the factories and resi- 
dence portion of the city, which resulted in enlisting 5000 persons to the 
cause. The finances consisted of the membership dues, $2000.00 realized 
on Tag Day, July 4, 1917, together later with monthly pledges from the 
citizens throughout the city, and benefits given by Church, social, fraternal, 
card and dancing societies and clubs in all sections of the city. Upon the 
organization of the Aurora Patriot Fund, the question of finances was 
taken care of entirely through that fund. 

In addition to the Board of Directors, Executive Committee and the 
four branches, the organization consisted of the following committees: 

1. Finance. 

2. Workshop. 

(A) Manager. 

(B) Departments. 

1. Surgical Dressings. 

2. Hospital Supplies and Garments. 

3. Knitting and outfitting men in Service. 

4. Stock Room. 

5. Packing and Shipping.

6. Canteen, appointed April, 1918.

8. Nursing activities, appointed January, 1919. 

Special committees were appointed from time to time as Nursing Sur- 
vey, Packing and Inspecting Christmas Parcels, Old Clothing Campaign, 
etc. Among these important ones was an Emergency Committee in the 
Influenza Epidemic, appointed in 1918, when during the epidemic there 
was a shortage of nurses and a critical situation in many homes of the 
city. Trained nurses were brought in from outside, and as many prac- 
tical nurses secured as were available. A bureau, established to distribute 
this nursing-service and foods, was prepared in schools and churches and 
the same were distributed about the city where needed, the entire expenses 
being borne by the Chapter, except in cases where the family was able 
and willing to pay. At this time, 40 families consisting of 160 members, 
were cared for. 

HOME SERVICE DEPARTMENT 

The Chairman and Committee of the Home Service Department took 
care of the work from its inauguration in January, 1918, until October, 
1918, when the work, becoming more complex and increasing rapidly, a 
secretary, who was a trained social worker, was employed. The volun- 
teer investigators were trained in the Home Service Institute held in 
Aurora in January, 1918. The department followed the policy outlined 
for it by the Central Division and has proven a live department, meeting 
the needs of the soldiers and their families, in the following relief work: 

Cases, Active 636 

Cases, information 167 

Disbursed $6,742.00 

Appropriated to running expenses of labor bureau 225.00

2 classes in Home Care of the Sick with 80 pupils High School. 

1 class in Dietetics with 7 pupils. 



[220] 




ALBERT M. SNOOK 
VICE CHAIRMAN, AURORA CHAPTER RED CROSS 

In all classes conducted by the Educational Committee doing the reg- 
ular work and working for a certificate, a fee was charged, the instructor 
returning the fee due her to the committee, to establish a fund for equip- 
ment. 

Three classes for Home Care of the Sick with forty-six pupils were 
organized before the Educational Committee was appointed, the Chapter 
giving authority to the Y. W. C. A. to form these classes, which com- 
plied with Red Cross requirements, the certificates being received from 

Washington. 

WORKSHOP 

The Workshop organization, responsible for the making of all sup- 
plies, was divided into departments and committees with Mrs. Grace E. 
Bliss, as general manager over all, with authority from the executive com- 
mittee to vary her organization, as the needs required. 

What a wonderful organization this energetic woman and her co- 
workers perfected in a short time is well known to our citizens, and the 
work accomplished by them and the units, together with individual work- 
ers, is best evidenced by the statistics transmitted to the General Head- 
quarters of the American Red Cross, as follows: 

Contributed to Second War Fund Drive $33,000.00 

1917 Christmas Packets contributed.. 500

65,725 yards of gauze. 

15,000 yards of muslin. 

1,700 yards of khaki cloth.

In addition to this material, the yards of tape, spools of thread and 
buttons used, can only be estimated by the thousands. 

For making sweaters, scarfs, mittens, helmets and socks 27,536 hanks 
of yarn were used and how the good mothers, sisters and other women did 
knit. Few citizens can realize that in making a sweater for one of the 
soldier boys in the neighborhood of 22,000 stitches were knitted and two 
hanks of yarn consumed. 

OLD CLOTHING DEPARTMENT 
Refugee Clothing (old) 12,280 pounds 

WORKING UNITS 

The work was accomplished by seventy-two units in addition to the 
individual workers, making a total of about 3200 workers. Instruction 
in knitting was given as long as there was need, and most of this work 
was done outside of the central workshop. For making surgical dress- 
ings, in addition to the central workshop, two permanent workrooms were 
opened, one of them maintained by the Women's Club, another by Mrs. 
E. F. Schoeberlein, and several others for shorter periods, all in charge 
of trained workers and under perfect sanitary conditions. Articles not 
standard or otherwise acceptable to the Red Cross regulations were sent 
to the American Fund for French wounded, and distributed at home, or 
disposed of where the best use could be made of them.

JUNIOR RED CROSS 

Five thousand two hundred and sixty-five children, pupils from 23 dif- 
ferent schools of the city, were enrolled in the Junior Red Cross, and, as 
the result of the great work of the teachers in those schools, they became 
so enthused with patriotism and the desire to help win the war that in a 
great measure the children of Aurora were greatly responsible for the 
quick and successful termination of all patriotic drives in this community. 
They were always on the job, regardless of their age or size. The work 
outlined by the Central Division was followed as far as practical under 
local conditions and permitted by the school authorities. 

OUTFITTING SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN 

From October, 1917, every man entering service was entitled to all or 
part of the following outfit : Comfort Kit, Sweater, wristers, helmet and 
two pairs of socks, and 1819 men availed themselves of the opportunity 
to secure the outfits before entraining for camp. A\\i of the 1950 comfort 
kits used were made complete by the First Presbyterian Unit. 

Women entering the service were given an outfit of comfort kit, scarf 
and two pairs of bed socks, while oversea workers were given six addi- 
tional pairs of stockings, which were made and partially donated by the 
women of Trinity Church. The Chapter gave each young woman a 
steamer rug and to overseas workers the sum of $50.00, which she was 
required to have, if she so chose. 



[225] 



This policy coincided with the sentiment of the community and re- 
sulted in a more hearty and enthusiastic support of the Chapter.

NURSING ACTIVITIES 

The Educational Committee was later merged with the Nurses' Activ- 
ities Committee, which conducted six classes in Home Care of the Sick, 
when a minimum fee was charged, under the direction of Miss Esther 
Hubbard. These classes were organized in the branches as well as in 
Aurora. 

A free clinic was inaugurated by the Child Welfare Department of the 
Council of National Defense and the Anti-Tuberculosis Society, prior to 
the request from Headquarters that Chapters conduct a Public Health 
Nursing Service. This clinic met with such success that the committee 
on Nursing Activities decided, after consultation with Miss Ahrens, to 
give its support to this clinic to the extent of providing funds for employ- 
ing two nurses which the clinic needed to carry on its work to the best 
advantage. 

WORK IN GENERAL 

In October, 1917, the Red Cross Chapter, through the courtesy of all 
the Aurora florists, conveyed five large boxes of cut flowers to the Base 
Hospital at Camp Grant, they being the first flowers sent into the big 
military hospital after its opening for the care of sick and distressed 
soldiers. 

In October, 1918, when the troop train enroute to Chicago was wrecked 
six miles west of Aurora, the representatives of the local Chapter were 
among the first on the scene and attended to the bringing of the injured 
to the Aurora Hospitals for treatment and provided food for the re- 
mainder of the soldier passengers upon their arrival in Aurora, so that 
their journey was continued without delay or much discomfort. 

On June 2nd, 1919, for the reception of the famous 129th Infantry 
in Aurora, while enroute from the battle fields of France to Camp Grant 



[226] 



for demobilizatian, the women, co-operating with the Union League Club, 
packed 2470 lunch boxes for which 250 home-made cakes were solicited, 
and served them to the boys before their departure. 

One June 29th, 1919, 500 soldier boys passing through the city, were 
served with coffee, sandwiches, cakes, etc. The Chapter on one hour's 
notice at this time prepared 75 gallons of coffee and 1000 sandwiches. 

On July 21st, when the Government Transcontinental Convoy passed 
through the city, its 345 members were served with luncheon, consisting 
of sandwiches, doughnuts, home-made cake, apple pie, coffee and ice cream. 

THE CHAPTER CONTRIBUTED TO THE 

Anti-Tuberculosis Society $1,500.00 

Mattoon Relief Committee 50.00 

Charleston Relief Committee ' 50.00 

The vast amount of work, which has been accomplished by the local 
Chapter and of which every loyal citizen is justly proud, was accomplished 
by volunteer workers, with the exception of one stenographer in the Cen- 
tral Shop, the trained Secretary and one stenographer in the Home Service 
Department, the nurses employed and the present instructor for the Home 
Care of the sick classes.

HON. FRANK O. LOWDEN

[240] 



Governor Frank O. Lowden's Welcome 

Home Address to the Soldiers 

and Sailors ^Illinois 

MEN of Illinois I welcome you home. You entered the service of 
your country knowing something of the trials, dangers and suffer- 
ings that were ahead of you. Some of you crossed the sea to meet 
those dangers in the trenches, on No Man's Land and on the battle fields 
of Europe. You saw your comrades fall, but you kept on. You saw 
them borne away on stretchers or in ambulances, never expecting to see 
them again. But you and many of those who left you wounded and sick 
have come back. With the men who spent months in camps in the United 
States and had none of the excitement and dangers of battle, yet, who 
nevertheless, served their country to the best of their ability, you have 
come home. You know what that word means now, if you did not know 
before. Home is Illinois, America, the best country in the world. It 
has always been worth fighting for. Your comrades now sleeping on 
foreign battlefields have proven it is worth dying for and you have shown 
it is worthy the great risks you have taken. 

Now, men of Illinois, weary of war, longing for home and the quiet 
pursuits of peace, you have a new task before you. It is the preservation 
of the liberties for which you risked your all. It is the resumption of 
peaceful relations. Great problems lie ahead of us and you must aid 
in their solution. I am sure you will prove equal to that task as thor- 
oughly as you met the demands of the last two trying years.

HOME ACTIVITIES 




Local Boarder Aurora, Illinois 

WITH the termination of the great conflict, which raged in Europe 
for over five years, and in which our country, through the patriot- 
ism of its people, played so vital and so successful a part, let us for 
a few moments review the work accomplished in our own City by its 
Local Board, the local representatives of ihe War Department of this 
country. 

With the entrance of the United States into the War on April 6, 1917, 
the War Department soon realized the inadequacy of the volunteer sys- 
tem, and the Selective Service Law was promulgated and passed by Con- 
gress on May 18, 1917, through which law, and its additional amend- 
ments, 8,696 men, or practically twenty-five per cent of the population of 
the City of Aurora, became directly affected. 

On June 5, 1917, in compliance with the National Proclamation, re- 
quiring all male persons to register who had reached their twenty-first 
birthday, and who had not reached their thirty-first birthday, the regular 
city election boards, under the supervision of the Registration Commit- 
tee, composed of Honorable James E. Harley, Mayor of the City of 
Aurora, Honorable S. N. Hoover, County Judge of Kane County, and 
Frank Grommes, City Clerk of Aurora, Illinois, registered 3442 men in 
the City of Aurora. 

Following June 5, 1917, at the direction of the Registration Commit- 
tee, duplicates of the registration cards of each registrant were made by 
the commercial students of the East High School of Aurora and the St. 
Nicholas Parochial School. 

On June 28, 1917, as one of the 4,557 local boards throughout the 
United States, delegated to carry out the Selective Service Law, the fol- 
lowing men were appointed by President Woodrow Wilson to form the 
Local Board for the City of Aurora, Illinois: Captain J. H. Freeman, a 
Civil War Veteran, Honorable Edward M. Mangan, Judge of the City 
Court of Aurora, Illinois, and Dr. William P. Sherman. The Board 
immediately organized and elected the following officers: Chairman, Cap- 
tain, J. H. Freeman, Clerk, Edward M. Mangan, and Medical Exam- 
iner, Dr. W. P. Sherman. To assist the Board in its clerical work, J. W. 
Greenaway, Clerk of the City Court of Aurora, Illinois, was appointed as 
Chief Clerk, and Miss Mamie Michels, as Assistant Clerk. The Local 
Board for the City of Aurora was placed within the jurisdiction of Dis- 
trict Board No. 3, for the Northern Division of Illinois, located at Chi- 
cago. 

On June 30, 1917, the original registration cards of the men registered 
on June 5, 1917, and duplicates thereof, were turned over by the Regis- 
tration Committee to the Local Board, and the cards were then compared, 



[249] 




CAPT. J. H. FREEMAN 
CHAIRMAN, LOCAL BOARD FOR THE CITY OF AURORA, ILLINOIS 



[250] 






certified to, and given serial numbers. On July 20, 1917, after the na- 
tional drawing at Washington, the order numbers were determined and 
placed upon the cards, and lists containing the name, address, serial and 
order numbers, were prepared and given to the public. 

August 1, 1917, pursuant to the recommendation of the Local Board, 
Gov. Frank O. Lowden, appointed the following physicians to assist Dr. 
Sherman in the physical examination of registrants: Dr. C. E. Colwell, 
Dr. George A. Darmer, Dr. W. L. Murphy, Dr. J. W. MacDonald and 
Dr. C. W. Geyer, (Dr. Darmer and Dr. Geyer later resigning and serv- 
ing with distinction with the American Expeditionary Forces in France). 

Between August 4th and 9th, 1917, the first 1121 registrants were 
ordered to appear for physical examination, 1043 of whom responded. 
Of the 1043 reporting, 893 passed the physical examination and ISO 
were found physically disqualified. Of the 893 who passed the physical 
examination, 591 were exempted from military duty, on industrial, de- 
pendency, agricultural and alienage grounds, leaving 302 available for 
general military service. The causes for rejection in the first thirty per 
cent of the June 5th, 1917, registrants called for physical examination 
were as follows: 

Defective Vision and Eye Troubles. .55 Overweight 1 

Blind 1 Hernia 19 

One Eye 2 Spinal Troubles 5 

Nose Deformed by accident 1 Heart Troubles 3 

Defective Teeth 14 Mentally Deficient 5 

Defective Hearing 2 Glandular Troubles 2 

Small Foot 1 Tuberculosis 6 

Short Leg 5 Small Chest 1 

One Leg 2 Infantile Paralysis 1 

Defective Hip 1 Epilepsy 2 

Vericose Veins 2 Fractures 2 

Fingers off right hand 4 Appendicitis (effects of) 1 

Hand Deformed 1 Undescending Testicle 1 

Defective Arms 4 Syphilis 1 

Hunchback 1 

Underweight 4 150 

The first call upon the Local Board for the City of Aurora was for ten 
men qualified for general military service, to be inducted and entrained for 
Camp Grant, Illinois, on September 5, 1917. To fill that call, the fol- 
lowing registrants volunteered and waived their rights of certification 
and order of call : 

Edward Artlip Owen Pat. Kavanaugh 

Earl L. Carpenter Robert N. Wilford 

William H. Duy John C. Jones 

Albert F. Damm Floyd Wormley

To the New Army 

MESSAGE OF PRESIDENT WILSON TO MEN CALLED TO THE 
NATION'S COLORS 

THE WHITE HOUSE 
Washington, D. C, Sept. 3, 1917 

To the Soldiers of the National Army: 

"VT'OU are undertaking a great duty. The heart of the whole country 
is with you. Everything that you do will be watched with the deepest 
interest and with the deepest solicitude not only by those who are near 
and dear to you, but by the whole nation besides. For this great war 
draws us all together, makes us all comrades and brothers, as all true 
Americans felt themselves to be when we first made good our national 
independence. They eyes of all the world will be upon you, because you 
are in some special sense the soldiers of freedom. Let it be your pride, 
therefore, to show all men everywhere not only what good soldiers you 
are, but also what good men you are, keeping yourselves straight in 
everything and pure and clean through and through. Let us set for our- 
selves a standard so high that it will be a glory to live up to it and add a 
new laurel to the crown of America. My affectionate confidence goes 
with you in every battle and every test. God keep you and guide you! 

Woodroiv Wilson. 



The second contingent of 83 men left Aurora for Camp Grant Septem- 
ber 22, 1917, and the third contingent, composed of 41 men, left Aurora, 
October 6, 1917, for the same camp. 

Pending the call for further contingents, and while the War Depart- 
ment at Washington was engaged in adopting a more efficient and more 
complete method of pursuing the Selective Service Law, the War De- 
partment issued an order permitting all registrants, who were not then 
within the current quota of their Board, to be released and to voluntarily 
enlist up to December 10th, 1917, in any branch of the service they de- 
sired. A great many of the registrants of the Local Board for Aurora 
took advantage of that order, and the Board was kept busy granting re- 
leases. 

ADOPTION OF QUESTIONNAIRE 

About December 1, 1917, the Local Board received the amendments 
to the Selective Service Regulations, adopting the questionnaire, the ap- 
pointment of the Legal and Medical Advisory Boards, the new form of 
physical examinations, occupational reports, and several other new meth- 
ods. The purpose of the questionnaire was to classify the man power of 
this country in its industrial and military importance, in order that the 
army might be secured as speedily as possible and yet the industry of the 
nation be preserved, and it was in fact a complete history of every regis- 
trant, which might be referred to at any time. 



[253] 




DR. WILLIAM P. SHERMAN 

CHIEF MEDICAL EXAMINER AND MEMBER OF THE LOCAL BOARD FOR THE 
CITY OF AURORA, ILLINOIS 



[254] 



To assist the registrants in preserving their rights in filling out the 
questionnaires, thereby aiding the Board in its work of classification, the 
Legal Advisory Board, consisting of Honoarble S. N. Hoover, E. L. Lyon 
and Olney C. Allen, was appointed by the Governor of Illinois. Of 
equal assistance to the Board, as well as to the Government and the regis- 
trants, in looking after the rights of each, was Ralph C. Putnam, Govern- 
ment Appeal Agent. 

Between December 15, 1917, and January 9, 1918, a questionnaire 
was mailed to every registrant, except the 130 who had already been in- 
ducted and accepted at Camp Grant. Through the courtesy of the City 
Council of Aurora, the Council Chamber was suitably so arranged that 
the Legal Advisory Board might conveniently and expeditiously aid the 
registrants in filling out their questionnaires. The Legal Advisory Board 
was greatly enlarged by the volunteer workers, comprising the legal pro- 
fession of the city and many able laymen and women. 

The thoroughness of the Classification System can perhaps best be 
described by figures, and the following report shows the result of the first 
registration. 

Class One (qualified for Military Service, including- 45 de- 
linquents and deserters, not apprehended) 918 

Class Two 367 

Class Three 100 

Class Four 1049 

Class Five (including 222 Class One men found physically 
deficient, and 370 men placed in this class because of vol- 
untary enlistment since June 5, 1917) 1034 

Cancellation on account of death and over-age 13 

Immediately upon the classification, a physical examination of all Class 
One registrants was made, including those who had been examined under 
the Original Selective Service Regulations, and who had not been inducted 
into the service, to which call 1095 men responded. 

MEDICAL ADVISORY BOARD No. 4 

Following the amendments to the Selective Service Regulations, Medi- 
cal Advisory Boards were appointed for the purpose of re-examining reg- 
istrants who were either referred to them by Local Boards or registrants 
who appealed from the findings of the Local Board examiners. Medical 
Advisory Board No. 4 exercised jurisdiction over the territory embraced 
in DuPage, Kane, Kendall and DeKalb Counties and their examinations 
totaled 1234 registrants. 

The Aurora City Hospital was designated by the U. S. War Depart- 
ment as the headquarters of the Board and its meetings were usually 
held on Wednesday of each week with other meetings when necessity 
required. The Board was organized Jan. 3, 1918, with the following 
members : 

Dr. H. A. Brennecke Chairman 

Dr. W. L. Murphy Secretary

MISS MAMIE MICHELS 
ASSISTANT CLERK, LOCAL BOARD FOR THE CITY OF AURORA, ILLINOIS 



[258] 



Calls for selected men were made upon the Local Board up until June, 
1918, when the number of available men was becoming so exhausted 
throughout the country that a second registration was deemed necessary 
by the War Department order. 

SECOND REGISTRATION 

On June 5, 1918, all male persons who had reached their twenty-first 
year since June 5, 1917, were required to register, and on August 24, 1918, 
all male persons who had reached their twenty-first birthday since June 5, 
1918, were required to register. The total registration on those two dates 
in the City of Aurora was 301. They were immediately classified, and the 
results of that classification are as follows : 

Class One (including 1 deserter, who was afterwards apprehended) 142 

Class Two 23 

Class Three 12 

Class Four 14 

Class Five (including 35 original Class One men who were found 
physically deficient and 58 who were placed in this class because 
of voluntary enlistment since June 5, 1918) 110 

"WORK OR FIGHT" 

During the summer of 1918, the "Work or Fight" order was promul- 
gated by the War Department. In pursuance of that order, the Legal 
Advisory Board prepared a form of questionnaire, which they sent to 750 
employers of labor in the city. Upon an examination of those question- 
naires, fifteen registrants were found by the Board to be engaged in non- 
essential occupation, but who, on the request of the Board, found employ- 
ment which was essential to the successful carrying on of the War. The 
small number of registrants found to be engaged in non-essential work was 
due to the fact that when the "Work or Fight" order was originated many 
sought essential employment of their own accord. 

LAST REGISTRATION 

Anticipating the great need of men for the successful termination of the 
War of 1919, and realizing that the available Class One men were rapidly 
becoming exhausted, the War Department issued a proclamation, requir- 
ing all male persons, who had reached the age of eighteen years and who 
had not reached the age of 46 years, to register on September 12, 1918. 
In pursuance of that proclamation, there were registered in the City of 
Aurora 4915 men. 

The usual procedure as to duplication of cards, lists, serial and order 
numbers, was carried out, and questionnaires were mailed to the registrants 
according to the following division of ages: 

2202 to registrants between the ages of 19 and 36, (Inc.) 
249 to registrants 18 years of age. 

2464 to registrants between the ages of 37 and 45 (Inc.)

STUDENTS ARMY TRAINING CORPS 

Under the Amended Selective Service Regulations, calling for the Sep- 
tember 12, 1918, registration, arrangements were made by the Govern- 
ment, whereby all registrants under twenty-one years of age were given 
the privilege of enlisting in the Students' Army Training Corps, being con- 
ducted by the different colleges and universities throughout the country. 
By taking advantage of this course, a boy might pursue his college train- 
ing, and in addition he would receive free tuition, board and uniform, 
also the regular soldier's salary. This Board had 83 of its registrants 
enrolled in the Students' Army Training Corps.

EDWARD L. LYON 
MEMBER, LEGAL ADVISORY BOARD 



[264] 



EXAMINING PHYSICIANS 

During the period of physical examinations, held under the direction of 
the Local Board, the ten physicians, who so generously volunteered their 
time and experience to expedite the work in all kinds of weather and con- 
ditions, examined approximately 2700 registrants, which included several 
hundred registrants enrolled with other boards throughout the country. 
During the first eight days of August, 1917, the examiners examined 1090 
men, while in the months of January and February, 1918, over 1200 were 
examined for qualification in Uncle Sam's army. In October, 1918, the 
first class men in the 19 to 37 age of the September registration, number- 
ing 235 men, were examined in one day. 

LEGAL ADVISORY BOARD 

The Legal Advisory Board, with its corps of assistants, was perhaps 
the best organization of its kind in the country. With a full crew of as- 
sistants, continuously at work in the City Hall during the weeks devoted 
to filling out the questionnaires, over 12,000 registrants from this city 
and other boards were aided to such an extent that in only a very few 
cases were corrections necessary to the papers when filed with the Local 
Boards, which in itself speaks volumes when one considers how exacting 
most Boards were in considering all questionnaires under their control. 

BOARD OF INSTRUCTION 

This Board of 13 members was organized under the direction of the 
War Department for the purpose of instructing all registrants awaiting 
call to the service as to hygiene and temperance, patriotism and war issues, 
camp life, English language and military drill and conduct, so that upon 
their entering camp, the men were practically well versed in most of the 
things which the former recruits were ignorant of when they landed at 
the cantonments. 

During the few weeks of its existence, prior to the signing of the .arm- 
istice, this Board had enrolled 413 men of whom 341 were generally in 
attendance at the drills and lectures; eighty drills were given, during 
which time talks were given on military conduct; eighteen lectures were 
given to these men for their physical and moral assistance. Eighty men 
never missed a drill, while nine men also took extra drill work not re- 
quired. The Board was greatly assisted by Major Harkison and the 
members of Company K of the Reserve militia in the military work 
given. 

VOLUNTEER WORKERS 

Many times during the war the Local Board expressed deep gratitude 
to the public school teachers, the students of the commercial classes of the 
two high schools and a large number of loyal men and women, who under 
the guidance of the efficient office force of the Board, accomplished the 
great task of preparing for the mails the thousands of pieces of matter 
sent to the registrants, duplicated thousands of registration and medical

examination cards, served as aids to the medical examiners, prepared filing 
covers and compiled occupational cards for the government, besides many 
other important lines of work during the period the country was at war and 
always with a true and loyal spirit. 

Under the Selective Service Law, a great responsibility not only rested 
upon the Local Board, but endless work, much of which was not realized 
by the general public, had to be performed to carry out the same, and it 
was only through the valuable assistance of the volunteer workers that 
the same was accomplished and brought commendation from the Provost 
Marshal's office at Washington.

AURORA'S largest draft contingent (297 men) escorted by Aurora 
Post No. 20, Grand Army of the Republic, Daughters of Veterans 
and Godard's Band leaving for Camp Grant, June 24, 1918. This 
contingent was the last of the available men of the 1917 registration and 
its departure was witnessed by 40,000 people. 

The Local Board was highly complimented by Camp Grant officers on 
the excellent system used in loading the contingent so that the train de- 
parted for camp two minutes ahead of time without confusion. 

Most of the contingent went over seas with the 86th Division, better 
known as the "Blackhawks."

During the existence of the Local Board, the office was open for busi- 
ness practically every day, including Sundays and holidays, from 7:30 
o'clock in the morning until 10 o'clock at night, while on several occa- 
sions the Board was in session the full 24 hours of the day. Over 150,- 
000 pieces of mail matter came in and went out of the Local Board office, 
and its records, on shipment to Washington, consisted of some 300,000 
sheets of paper and weighed over 4000 pounds. While a vast amount 
of stationery was furnished by the War Department, a large bulk of mate- 
rial used by the board was furnished through the courtesy of Mayor 
James E. Harley and the City Council of Aurora. The Local Board, 
through its efficient office organization, was the first board in Illinois to 
complete and ship the duplicate cards of the 1917 registration; had 300 
men ready for shipment when the first call for drafted men came; was 
never late with any shipment of men; was highly complimented by the 
Government officials and District Board No. 3 for its work; had on the 
signing of the armistice 99 per cent of its entire registration classified and 
was the first Board in the State of Illinois to complete its work and ship 
its records to Washington, D. C., as shown by the following extract from 
the Circular No. 311-L, of the Adjutant General's Office, under date of 
March 24, 1919, as follows, "Aurora's telegram, 'shipped' was filed at 
7:06 this A. M. and is the first Board in the State to complete 4th step." 
The Local Board ceased its labors April 1st, 1919.

HOTEL AURORA, 1917 



Officers Training School 



EARLY in the Spring of 1918, Aurora was visited by over one hun- 
dred officers of the United States Army who had been detailed by 
the Adjutant General's department to take up the study of decipher- 
ing codes of all kinds, especially the numberless codes which had been 
obtained from foreign countries and of ancient origin. This school was 
conducted for seven weeks in the grill room of Hotel Aurora with great 
success after which the officers returned to their different commands and 
embarked for the scenes of conflict in France. During their stay in this 
city the officers made many friends and it is most regretable to note that 
many of that school paid the supreme sacrifice on the battle fields during 
the few months of fighting after their arrival on the foreign shores.

Aurora Woman's Committee of the State 
Council ^National Defense 

THE Council of National Defense was created at Washington, D. 
C., August 29, 1916, and was composed of the Secretaries of War, 
Navy, Interior, Agriculture, Commerce and Labor. Deeming 
Woman's work essential to the winning of the war, the Woman's Com- 
mittee of the Council of National Defense was organized in April, 1917. 
Headquarters were established at Washington, D. C., and Dr. Anna 
Howard was appointed President, with Ida Tarbell as her assistant. 
Illinois organized under the leadership of Mrs. Joseph T. Bowen, with 
headquarters in Chicago, while two thousand units, each with its own 
chairman, were formed throughout the state. 

Mrs. Thomas B. Stewart of Aurora was selected as Chairman of Kane 
County, the county divided into districts, and Mrs. John T. Mason se- 
lected as temporary chairman for the Aurora Township. 

AURORA ORGANIZATION 

At a meeting, called by Mrs. Mason, of all the women of Aurora, and 
held in the City Hall on October 13th, 1917, the permanent organization 
of the Aurora Woman's Committee of the State Council of National 
Defense was perfected and the following officers elected: 

Chairman Mrs. T. J. Parker 

First Vice Chairman Mrs. Ira C. Copley 

Second Vice Chairman Mrs. George Martin 

Secretary Mrs. Richard Curry 

Treasurer Miss Edith R. Levedahl 

The object of the organization, as stated in the state constitution, was 
"to avoid all duplication of effort, to utilize existing organizations, to 
promote efficiency and give every woman an opportunity for patriotic 
service at home and abroad." 

Membership was open to every woman in the township and the pres- 
idents and leaders of the one hundred and eighty nine (189) woman's 
organizations of Aurora were especially urged to attend the regular 
monthly meetings. 

The Executive Committee was composed of the County Chairman, local 
officers and heads of departments, the following composing the permanent 
committee: 

Chairman Mrs. T. J. Parker Secretary Miss Edith R. Levedahl 

First Vice Chairman Mrs. Ira C. Treasurer Mrs. E. J. Walsh 

Copley County Chairman Mrs. T. B. Stewart 

Second J'ice Chairman Mrs. George Registration Mrs. J. H. Bliss

The work of the Woman's Council of Defense was only another evi- 
dence of the patriotism of the Aurora women. Almost every one was 
already engaged in the Red Cross, Navy Aid or Allied Relief work, and 
while the work of these agencies, as well as that of the Liberty Loan 
Committee, was reported at our meetings and assisted by the Council in 
various ways, nevertheless, they were entirely independent organizations, 
and a complete history of their activities is reported elsewhere. 

REGISTRATION 

The registration of women was the first work undertaken by the Coun- 
cil of Defense, the members of the Woman's Club doing most of the 
work, under the leadership of the Registration Chairman, Mrs. J. H. 
Bliss. The township was divided into precincts with precinct workers. 
Ten thousand one hundred and seventy-eight (10,178) women registered, 
and eight hundred and fifty-nine dollars ($859.00) was raised from the 
registration fee. One-half of this sum was forwarded to State Headquar- 
ters and one-half deposited to our local account. 

The precinct organization, formed by the registration department, 
proved of much value in subsequent drives, such as the second Red Cross 
drive, the Good Roads and Sanitarium campaign and the Survey of the 
Blind in Aurora Township. The registration cards were placed in a filing 
case, bought for the purpose, and proved to be of valuable service during 
the war in enlisting workers in many capacities. 

CONSERVATION 

A "Speaker's Bureau" was formed, and talks urging conservation of 
food and the use of substitutes were given before seventy-two (72) organ- 
izations. 

In April, 1917, a "Pure Food Show" was held in the Armory. Speak- 
ers on conservation, the use of substitutes, and other patriotic subjects 
addressed the crowds. One hundred dollars ($100.00) was raised by the 
Council of Defense home-cooking booth. During the season three thous- 
and five hundred (3,500) war cook-books were sold. 

In August, the Council of Defense headquarters were opened in Fox 
Street in the store, generously offered by Joseph Sherer, furnishing head- 
quarters for the Food Administrator, and also, John T. Mason. Here,

under the supervision of Mrs. E. R. Conklin, chairman, the use of sugar 
and fat substitutes was demonstrated to over nine thousand (9000) 
women. Talks were also given by members of the Civic Department of 
the Aurora Woman's Club and by Miss Ethel Dole, County Advisor of 
the Home Improvement Association, an organization largely made pos- 
sible by the efforts of the Council of Defense. 



WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN INDUSTRY 

The Department of Women and Children in Industry accomplished 
much in the "Back to School" drive. With the assistance of Miss Mary 
Stone, state organizer, Mrs. J. T. Mason, chairman, was able to unite the 
efforts of the schools, Parent-Teacher Associations and the Juvenile Pro- 
tective Association, to induce boys and girls under sixteen years of age to 
go back into the schools. A permanent organization was effected, con- 
sisting of the Superintendents of schools, representatives of Parochial 
schools, presidents of the Parent-Teacher Associations and the Juvenile 
Protective Association officer, to discuss, investigate and settle difficulties, 
to transfer pupils from one school to another and to see that pupils on 
leaving jobs returned to school. It was insisted that work certificates be 
issued by a school superintendent and O. K.'d by the Juvenile Protective 
Association officer, thus enforcing the State law. The co-operation of 
manufacturers and employers was also secured. Four hundred and eight 
(408) children returned to school. 

PATRIOTIC LEAGUE 

The Patriotic League, under the chairmanship of Miss Mildred Pink- 
erton, formed nineteen units, with nine hundred and fourteen (914) 
members. Most of the work was carried on under the Y. W. C. A. The 
activities of the girls, mostly of the High School age, consisted of knit- 
ting, gauze work, socials, educational programs, hiking, gymnastics, and 
military drill. 

PUBLICITY DEPARTMENT 

Through the Misses Mae Barclay and Ella Greenman of the Publicity 
Department, the Aurora Beacon-News gave columns of space to advertise 
and circulate facts and information regarding our accomplishments, plans 
and purposes. 

FOOD PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT 

The Food Production Department, with Mrs. Frank Watson as chair- 
man, united with the Woman's Club and House and Garden Club in se- 
curing 80 vacant lots for home gardens, furnishing nineteen dollars and 
thirty three cents ($19.33) worth of seeds and potatoes, securing the free 
distribution of twenty bushels of potatoes by farmers, disbursing five 
thousand packages of free seeds, sent out by the government, and thir- 
teen dollars for ploughing the lots. Mrs. Watson personally furnished 
one thousand (1,000) packages of flower seeds and offered a two and a 
half dollar gold piece for the best war garden.

FATHERLESS CHILDREN OF FRANCE 

After an inspiring talk by Mrs. Robert Brewster of Chicago regarding 
the Fatherless Children of France, Mrs. Ida Sawyer Allen undertook, with 
the Parent-Teachers Association, the task of placing Aurora's quota of 
one hundred (100) adopted children. Kind hearts responded and final 
results showed over one hundred "Fatherless Children of France" 
adopted, either by individuals or societies of Aurora. 

COURSES OF STUDY 

The chairman of the department of Courses in Study, Mrs. R. L. 
Curry, assisted in forming classes in First Aid, Home Nursing, Dietetics, 
Typewriting, Public Speaking and Motor Service, and helped to organize 
night school for boys and girls. Both this and the Americanization de- 
partments encouraged community singing at the City playgrounds, schools 
and public meetings. 

AMERICANIZATION 

The Amerizanization department, with Mrs. J. C. Y. Moore as chair- 
man, was a potent factor in bringing about a big community organization, 
the U. S. Government, the schools, and the 1 city co-operating. Two public 
Naturalization Ceremonies were held for the newly created citizens in 
the East High Auditorium. Night schools for the foreign born were 
formed at the Roumanian church, Oak Park and Indian Creek schools, 
Prof. C. M. Bardwell greatly assisting in this work. 

COUNCIL MEETINGS 

The Aurora Woman's Council held fourteen public meetings and 
twenty-seven executive meetings, bringing well-known speakers to address 
the people on vital questions of woman's work in the war. Among them 
were Mrs. A. Starr Best, Mrs. Margaret Bangs, Miss Helena McMillan, 
Mrs. Edward Bemis, Mrs. Walter Brewster, Mrs. Helen Ruggles, Dr. 
Rachel Yarros, Mrs. Virginia LeRoy, Miss Harriet Vittum, Dr. Allen 
Albert, Mrs. Ira Couch Wood and Miss Mary Wood. It furnished 
money for many laudable undertakings, First Aid classes, seeds for war 
gardens, $50.00 toward furnishing a ward in the American Hospital in 
Rheims, France, $25.00 for the Federal Employment Bureau, flags for 
the new citizens, in addition to $200.00 each for the Day Nursery and 
Free Clinic. 

SOCIAL SERVICE 

The plans of the Social Service Department, under the chairmanship of 
Mrs. Charles Wade, for the establishment of a Day Nursery, have mis- 
carried several times, but money in the treasury is still at the disposal of 
the committee for that purpose, and we expect to see plans materialize 
this fall. 

CHILD WELFARE

Mesdames H. A. Brennecke and S. D. Seamans, responding to the call

of the government to help save one hundred thousand (100,000) habies 
and arranged to have a "weighing and measuring" campaign of all chil- 
dren under six years of age. With the hearty co-operation of superin- 
tendents of schools, teachers and members of the Parent-Teachers' Or- 
ganizations, doctors and nurses, two thousand eight hundred and thirty- 
five (2,835) children were weighed, measured and physically examined. 
Birth registration was also inquired into, resulting in an exceedingly com- 
plete registration the following year, 1919, during the "Health Week." 
The physical examination brought out the fact that 102 little children 
were greatly in need of medical attention, and perhaps the most satis- 
factory result of the Woman's Council of Defense work, next to helping 
win the war, was the establishment of a "Free Clinic," to take care of 
such cases and, ultimately, older people who needed similar service. 

FREE CLINIC 

The Council of Defense rented the Rollins & Rice flat in Main Street, 
engaged Mrs. George Brown as secretary, furnished the rooms, and 
launched this great center of good in Aurora. The united efforts of the 
Red Cross and Tuberculosis Association came to our assistance and we 
are truely proud of its wonderful growth and accomplishments. Two 
expert State Specialists, Dr. Wilson R. Abbott on Tuberculosis, and Dr. 
Clarence East on Infantile Paralysis and crippled condition resulting from 
other causes, held clinics once a month. The clinic was formally opened 
January 11, 1919. General clinics are held twice a week, supervised by 
our local physicians and assisted by the tuberculosis nurse and our two 
home nurses, employed for this purpose. One hundred and seventy (170) 
tubercular and crippled patients have been cared for by Drs. Abbott and 
and East, and one hundred sixty-seven (167) cases have been cared for 
by our local physicians. Mr. George Wegner, of the Wolfertz De- 
formity Appliance and Truss Company of Chicago, has personally repre- 
sented the company and supplied the casts and braces Dr. East has recom- 
mended. Braces have been secured for sixteen. These are paid for by 
the parties themselves, or, if financially unable, the money is secured by 
private subscription. 

The great world war is ended and peace declared. Our country enter- 
ing at the crucial moment played a potent part in winning the victory. 
Democracy is safe for the present, but we all realize that our nation must 
be on the alert, for "eternal vigilance" is the price of permanent peace. 
The reconstruction and readjustment of society must follow war, and the 
Council of Defense, realizing it, in the midst of the tumult and confusion 
of war, began constructive measures for the conservation of humanity. 
We are confident that the forces then set in motion will result in perma- 
nent good for society. 



[290] 



Aurora Patriots' Fund 

WITH the closing of the first year of the war, the citizens of Au- 
rora, believing that by one centralized organization more money 
could be secured, more people enabled to assist in the war work 
and the contributions of the citizens would not be duplicated, advocated 
the organization of a central body for that purpose. 

On March 6th, 1918, Mayor James E. Harley called a meeting in the 
City Hall, at which representatives from every organization, business, 
fraternal and religious of the city, were present, at which time a tempor- 
ary organization was launched. 

On June 26, 1918, the Aurora Patriot's. Fund was duly organized 
under license No. 415, issued by the Illinois State Council of Defense, 
and immediately a vigorous campaign for the purpose of securing month- 
ly pledges for the war fund, otherwise known as the War Chest, was be- 
gun. 

In organizing, the society adopted the following purposes of the fund: 

First To enable everybody to give in the aid of war work. 

Second To enable all to feel that they were doing "their bit." 

Third To prevent and do away with duplication and reduplication of 
effort in the collection of this, that and the other fund for war work, pro- 
viding for the handling of all the work under one centralized organiza- 
tion, which would be able to collect more money, do more good, work far 
more efficiently, and give every man and woman equal opportunity to 
share in patriotic giving. 

Fourth To insure against demands which might be unfair in amount 
or purpose. 

Fifth To leave an open field for Bond Issues and Thrift Stamp cam- 
paigns. 

In the campaign for members, an enrollment of 16,000 persons was 
secured, and the first monthly payment commenced on July 15, 1918, and 
terminated on November 6, 1919, with a total collection of $226,221.00.

Union Labor Patriot Fund 

EARLY in the second year of the war, the Labor Unions of the city 
took up the question of a central body, handling all war relief fund 
subscriptions, for the purpose of eliminating duplicate and unneeded 
subscriptions. Having organized their central body about the same time 
the Patriots Fund was started, they decided to continue with their original 
organization which consisted of many members of the 

Electrical Workers Butchers Union 

Laborers Union Lathers Union 

Plumbers Union Sheet Metal Workers 

Carpenters Union Painters Union 

B. of L. E. Machinists Union 

Metal Polishers Union St. R. R. Employes 

During its existence, the organization collected a fund of $1196.95 in 
the weekly payment plan and this was paid out for worthy purposes as 
follows : 

Expenses $ 43.45 Employment Bureau 150.00 

Red Cross, general 300.00 Balance on hand 38.50 

Red Cross Home Department 386.00 __^^ 

Christmas Box Fund 169.50 

French Orphan Fund 109.50 Total $1,196.95 

The officers of the organization were:

Alien Registration 



IN FEBRUARY, 1918, at the suggestion of the State Council of De- 
fense, American Protective League and Local Board for the City of 
Aurora, Mayor James E. Harley ordered a complete registration of 
all aliens residing in and about the City of Aurora, regardless of what 
country they came from. 

This registration was conducted through the factories and work shops 
of the city and resulted in listing for reference purposes 1600 families in 
the city and township adjacent to the city. This information was filed 
for future use, if so desired, by the government officials. 

ALIEN ENEMY REGISTRATION (GERMAN) 

Following close on the private registration completed by the city offi- 
cials, came orders from the Department of Justice at Washington, D. C., 
instructing all men aliens of German birth, including all who had made 
their declaration of intention to become citizens of the United States, to 
appear before the police officials of Aurora for the purpose of registra- 
tion. 

This registration, held between March 1st, 1918, and March llth, 
was conducted by Chief of Detectives A. G. Wirz, and resulted in the 
registration of 99 males, which later was increased by eleven who had 
moved to the city from other sections of the country before registering. 
So successful was the registration of the male German alien popula- 
tion that the Department of Justice ordered all females of German birth 
or citizenship to register, designating the period of registration from 
August 4th, to August 15th, 1918, which resulted in the registration of 
117 persons. 

Both registrations were similar in character, the records being in trip- 
licate form and included data as to place and date of birth, names of all 
relatives, names of all relatives engaged in the war, either on the allied 
or German side, their desire for naturalization, cause, if any, of their ar- 
rest, a complete measurement under the famous Bertillion System and 
three photographs and finger prints of all fingers on both hands. 

One copy was forwarded to the Department of Justice at Washing- 
ton, D, C., one copy to the United States Marshal in Chicago and the 
third was retained for record purposes in the local police headquarters. 

Ten days after the period of registration, photographic permits were 
forwarded to each registrant by the government, with instructions that in 
case of removal from this jurisdiction the holder should report to the 
headquarters for transfer and removal permit. 



[299] 



While this procedure was believed to be unnecessary among our popu- 
lation, it was a national order, of great importance in many sections of 
the country and was cheerfully carried out in this vicinity. 

Assisting the police officials in the work or registration were Mrs. 
Frank Hale, Mrs. Charles Wright, Mrs. Roy Strohn, Mrs. M. E. Geipel, 
Mrs. J. E. Salfisberg, Mrs. Burton Denney, Mrs. J. W. Hunt, Mrs. Max 
Wolf, Mrs. J. W. Kennedy, Mrs. W. P. Sherman and Messrs. Everett 
Beckwith, Joseph Shearer, Judd Chapman, Burton Denney and Coulter 
Rule.

Y. M. C. A 

UPON the declaration of war in April, 1917, the big Y. M. C. A. 
building was immediately thrown open for the care and comfort 
of the soldiers and sailors, either at home on leave or those pre- 
paring to enter the war service. Hundreds were given quarters and the 
privileges of the building, including the baths and gym., practically free 
of charge. 

Of the one thousand one hundred fifty (1150) members of the local 
association membership, practically 450 served their country, either in 
the army, navy, marines or in the association work in foreign countries, 
or in the national cantonments. 

Early in the war at one of the dinners given in the Association rooms, 
the "home-boys" contributed $2000.00 to pay the membership dues of 
those who had gone into the service, and on the call for funds to carry on 
the work in the numerous camps of this country and overseas, the citizens 
of Aurora subscribed $78,000.00 as its quota. 

During the summer of 1917, and most of 1918, great work was ac- 
complished by the physical directors' force in the gym., where hundreds 
of men, awaiting the call to the colors, were given training, which came 
in good stead upon their entering the ranks as soldiers and sailors. 

So great was the patriotic spirit of Aurora people in the association 
war work and in the local association that at the signing of the armistice 
the membership totaled 1886 men. 

Twenty-six men answered the call of the Y. M. C. A. as secretaries 
and workers in the cantonments and in war stricken Europe, all of whom 
served with honor and credit to themselves and this community. 

They were :

The Y. M. C. A. reports show the organization had 1506 huts handled 
by 7850 men and women workers; 81 workers were killed, 31 died in the 
United States, 148 were wounded in France, while 268 were cited or decor- 
ated for gallantry under fire. During the war 180,000 shows and entertain- 
ments were given the soldiers and sailors in which 12,154,570 feet of pic- 
ture films were used; 1,000,000 sheets of writing paper and 500,000 en- 
velopes given the service men each day, while 323,432 soldiers and sail- 
ors remitted money home through the organization, the amount of money 
being handled through this department amounting to $37,237,000.00. 

The association controlled 20 biscuit factories, 13 chocolate factories, 
three candy factories and eight jam factories and supplied the men during 
the war with the following commodities: 

2,000,000,000 cigarettes 30,232,000 packages of candy 

32,000,000 bars of sweet chocolate 10,160,000 packages of biscuits

Knights of Columbus 

THE work of the Knights of Columbus of Aurora during the war 
covers a diversified field. In every war activity, both military and 
civil, the Knights did a noble part. 

At the time the World's War was declared, April 6, 1917, the Knights 
of Columbus of Aurora met the situation and began planning along various 
lines, ways and means in the interest of our country. First by encourage- 
ment and full co-operation in every enterprise launched by the Govern- 
ment. Secondly, the encouragement of enlistments in the Army and Navy. 

One man in every four went into the armed service. What they did, 
the story of the Albert sector, of St. Mihiel, of Bellou Woods, of Chateau 
Thierry, of the Argonne Forest and of the Meuse and Somme, and in the 
sea watchers tells, for there was scarcely a division of the great American 
Expeditionary Force but counted a Knight of Columbus from Aurora in 
its roster. 

The one man in four of our Aurora brothers who went away gave good 
account of himself. What of the three who could not go? 

Aurora's response to the first call for funds, made by the supreme 
directors, the $2 per capita assessment, which at that time seemed so great, 
was such as to give us high place, for the state over-paid the tax, raising a 
total of $90,276.00 according to a report made by Supreme Secretary 
McGinley to then State Deputy LeRoy Hackett, November 27, 1917. 
After that time belated returns from the assessment increased the total. 

In the second Knights of Columbus War Fund call, which resulted in the 
first public drive for funds in December, 1917, Aurora raised $17,000.00, 
over-subscribing the $10,000.00 quota assigned. 

In the third call, in which the people of Aurora were asked to pledge the 
amount of one-half hour's pay per week, the members of Aurora Council, 
K. of C., worked zealously upon the different committees and teams and 
assisted greatly in the raising of $350,000 to be known as the Aurora 
Patriot's Fund. 

Aurora Council, K. of C., were represented upon the Committee of 
Fifteen of the Aurora Patriot's Fund by two of her members, who gave 
their time gladly to assist the people of Aurora in furthering the great 
cause of democracy. 

The members of Aurora Council, Knights of Columbus, assisted not 
only in the war work at home but also in many ways throughout the entire 
United States and also abroad. 

A well-known gentleman of New York, Mr. James Byrne, in a public 
address delivered not very long ago, referred to the growth of the Knights 
of Columbus in war work as being one of the most surprising phenomena 



[ 305 ] 



of the war. He declared that the Knights of Columbus had reached, 
within a few months, a degree of effectiveness that would ordinarily have 
taken twenty-five years to realize. This declaration is literally true. The 
war provided the opportunity to test the strength of the Order, to find out 
whether this organization, founded on a wise constitution, would be worthy 
of its prosperity by rising to do great things for the national cause. In the 
manifold duties that faced every citizen during the crisis, there would 
have been valid excuse for the plea that their full energies were being util- 
ized, that they ought not to be expected to give extra effort furthering the 
aims of the war organization which the Knights added to the already ela- 
borate machinery working towards the common end the winning of the 
war. 

The fact that, from coast to coast, from the Canadian to the Mexican 
border, the American Knights responded, as their Canadian brothers had 
done, to the call for a new and separate aid in addition to the effort which 
each man was putting forth, attested the Order's strength and confidence 
in the administration responsible for its affairs. Upon this foundation of 
sound laws conscientiously administered the Knights were assured success 
in their undertaking so long as their merits were recognized by the public 
and their coffers replenished as need arose. From the most modest be- 
ginnings the organization progressed from one point to another, from 
camp to camp, until the entire ground was covered. 

The work of the Knights of Columbus at the front was of the very 
marrow of the war because it held much of what was best in the war, 
self-sacrifice and brotherly love.

Boy Scouts of America 

*_ 

IN ALL the war activities of Aurora, organized boyhood, through the 
Boy Scouts of America, was privileged to have a definite part, and 
fulfilled every opportunity for service. 

Under the leadership of Walter M. K. Kiplinger, Scout Executive of 
Aurora, and the splendid group of volunteer workers who served as 
Scoutmasters, Aurora's Boy Scout organization made an enviable record 
in every service it was called upon to perform, and local officials have 
testified to their appreciation, not alone as to the actual services rendered 
by the Boy Scouts, but to the spirit and effectiveness of that service. 




SOME OF AURORA'S BOY SCOUTS 

The following is a brief summary of the Boy Scout achievements in 
Aurora : 

In four Liberty Loan campaigns, they sold 2500 subscriptions, amount- 
ing to $267,490.00, during the final weeks of each loan drive, after reg- 
ular soliciting organizations had thoroughly canvassed the city. 

Sold $60,000 worth of 1918 War Savings Stamps. 

Located 300,000 feet of standing black walnut in Kane County for the 
War Department. 

Collected many barrels of fruit pits and nut shells for gas masks. 

Planted and cultivated war gardens. 

Distributed 250,000 pieces of U. S. Government literature. 



[ 307 ] 



Rendered invaluable services to the Red Cross, the United War Work 
Committee and other National organizations serving the Government. 

Assisted the Food and Fuel Administrations in many ways. Co-oper- 
ated in the American Library Association drive for books for the army 
and navy. 

Instrumental in campaign which established Aurora's War Chest by 
distributing 10,000 information booklets, one to every home in Aurora. 

Performed countless acts of service to the Government, not recorded 
under any special classification. 

Practically every Patriotic poster exhibited in Aurora windows was 
distributed by the Boy Scouts. 

They served as ushers, aides and orderlies at practically every patriotic 
meeting held in Aurora during the war period. 

Many former Scouts and Scoutmasters served with the colors. 

They presented a united front of patriotic zeal which in itself was of 
incalculable value to the city and country. 

Aurora has 22 troops of Boy Scouts with a total membership of 450 
of the brightest young chaps in Illinois. The winners of the 272 honorary 
medals and bars offered for exceptional work by the United States Treas- 
ury Department for the sale of Liberty Bonds were :

Five Liberty Loans 

AS IN the Civil and Spanish American Wars, Aurora not only re- 
sponded to the government's call with its greatest, truest, and 
rarest capital men in extravagant ratio, but its dollars did glor- 
ious duty behind her brave sons and poured out in a ceaseless and ever- 
growing torrent to meet every campaign launched. 

In the five Liberty Loans, the record established by this city was in- 
deed magnificent and was accomplished only because of its united and de- 
termined people assisting in every way possible one of the best campaign 
organizations this city could gather together. Aurora's quota for the 
five loans was placed at $6,313,743.00, but, as a result of the campaigns 
carried on here, the total amount raised reached $8,269,060.00, an over- 
subscription of $1,955,317.00, or 30 per cent. 

In May, shortly after the declaration of war, came the call for the first 
loan, Aurora's quota being $750,000.00, and as in most cities of the 
country, the organization was then only in its infancy, but, nevertheless, 
with the few workers, enlisted, $890,000.00, which was reported to the 
authorities as this city's contribution at the close of the campaign, June 
15, 1917. 

When the second loan was launched in September, 1917, Aurora's 
Liberty Loan organization was fully organized and worked with in- 
creased enthusiasm as each succeeding loan campaign was inaugurated. 
Equally important in the loan drives, with the executives in charge of the 
campaigns, was the great work accomplished by the Aurora "Ad" Club, 
nearly the entire membership composing a committee under the chairman- 
ship of Edward Waegner and which had full control of the many adver- 
tising features in each campaign. 

This committee had all the features used throughout the country and 
many more which were original. They solicited the advertising space, 
engineered the posting of bills, and, in fact, placed the liberty loan pro- 
positions up to the people as was never before accomplished in this vicin- 
ity on any project. 

Boy Scouts carried millions of bills and posters to stores and homes; 
Four-Minute men spoke at all performances in the local theaters; clergy- 
men preached bond buying from the pulpits; teachers in all the schools 
urged the students to save and buy bonds; bond buying was talked every- 
where and at all hours of the day and night with the result, Aurora went 
over the top in every instance. 

The Liberty Loan organization in Aurora Township was in charge of 
the following executives: 

W. W. Armstrong, Chairman of Liberty Loans in Kane County. 
Wm. George, Chairman of Kane County Bankers Committee.

American Protective League 

A BRANCH of the American Protective League, better known as a 
special detective force of the Department of Justice, working under 
instructions from the headquarters at Chicago and Washington, 
was organized in this city shortly after the declaration of war, and from 
May 1, 1917, until it was disbanded in 1919, this organization of 
over 150 of our keen business men conducted their line of work in such 
an able manner as to receive the highest words of commendation that 
the Department officials could bestow. 

The local jurisdiction extended over the territory bounded by Geneva, 
Waterman, Mendota, Plainfield, Naperville and Wheaton, while its im- 
mediate duties were to investigate and report to different department 
heads all matters directed to their attention and with the utmost dis- 
patch. 

This corps of volunteers, among other things, investigated all sup- 
posed pro-Germans, anti-Americans, looked up reported delinquents from 
Local Exemption Boards, blind pigs and numerous other governmental 
subjects. 

On the call from the government for photos and views of Germany 
and Belgium, to be used in the aviation department of the U. S. Army, 
engaged in bombing parties, the local league operatives were able to se- 
cure a great collection for the government, one of which, composed of 
over 600 pictures and maps, was pronounced the best collection obtained 
by the government. These pictures, together with a large collection of 
field glasses, obtained from residents of Aurora, proved a great assist- 
ance to the army and navy forces of the United States. 

Every applicant for passports for Y. M. C. A., K. of C. or Red Cross 
workers was carefully investigated by this body, dozens of supposed 
slackers were delivered to the authorities, besides the handling of 335 
major cases of investigation from the Department of Justice. 

As a result of their labors, four men were interned by the Govern- 
ment. Co-operating with them were the police in the entire territory, and 
great assistance was given the corps by Chief Charles McCarty and his 
police department and Thomas Smith, Deputy U. S. Marshal, so that 
with this most efficient organization every case brought to its attention 
was quickly investigated and reported with dispatch to the government 
officials for appropriate action.

Aurora Division of the State Council 

of Defense 

*y 

ORGANIZED on October 9, 1917, for the purpose of assisting 
the State Council of Defense in its labors in this vicinity, the 
Aurora Division, composed of nearly two hundred patriotic citi- 
zens, did most commendable work, in many instances unknown to the rest 
of the people of the city. Their work of investigating alien enemies in 
this section was perfected, after a careful registration of each person in 
the city was made. They assisted in all bond campaigns and stamp drives; 
investigated reported violations of the laws and war rules; assisted in the 
conservation of fuel, food and building materials, so that every ounce of 
material and energy could be used for war work and for a successful end- 
ing of the war. The officers of the Kane County Council were Rev. 
Chas. Alden, Chairman, and Fred B. Shearer, Secretary, while the local 
council was in charge of Judge S. N. Hoover, Chairman, and W. A. 
Searl, Secretary.

HON. FRED B. SHEARER 
CHAIRMAN, AURORA FOUR MINUTE MEN 



[ 328 ] 



Four-Minute Men 

THE Four Minute Men of Aurora, an organization of volunteer 
business and professional men, under the direction of Fred B. 
Shearer, proved itself one of the most important cogs in the won- 
derful war machine in this city, from the time of its inception during the 
Second Liberty Loan until after the signing of the armistice. 

The "Four Minute Men" was an organization, conceived and carried 
out by some clever patriot, to arouse the people of the United States to 
the highest pitch of patriotic endeavor. Composed entirely of volun- 
teers, its mission was to convey to the people, throughout the country, 
messages of the government in connection with its war program, boost- 
ing enlistments, the sales of Liberty Bonds, War Saving and Thrift 
Stamps, and establishing and maintaining that morale among the citizens 
which backed the fighting forces to the limit. They did this by appearing 
before the moving picture theatres and other ready-made audiences, 
speaking for a period of only four minutes. 

What great work was accomplished by the local Four Minute Men 
will never be known, but the fact that these men spoke to from 50,000 to 
75,000 people each month at public gatherings, and that Aurora went 
"over the top" in every war enterprise proved the organization of untold 
value in the war work of this community. 

President Wilson, in the early part of the war said: 

"Upon you Four Minute Men who are charged with the special duty 
and enjoy a special privilege in the command of your audiences will rest 
in a considerable degree the task of arousing and informing the great body 
of our people. 

"My best wishes and continued interest with you in your work as part 
of the reserve officers corps in a nation thrice armed because through your 
efforts it knows better the justice of its cause and the value of what it 
defends." 

On November 29, 1918, after the signing of the armistice, he wrote 
the Four Minute Men, in part, as follows: 

"Each member of your organization in receiving your 
honorable discharge from the service, may justly feel a 
glow of proper pride in the part he has played in holding 
fast the inner lines." 

This national organization was composed of about 75,000 men, speak- 
ing every day and night, and reached, it is believed, about 15,000,000 peo- 
ple every twenty-four hours during the period of the war.

War Saving and Thrift Stamps 

IN THE fall of 1917, Hon. Frank A. Vanderlip, a former citizen of 
the City of Aurora, now probably the leading financial authority of 
the United States, conceived the plan of raising war funds, whereby 
every person in the country, especially those who could not invest in Lib- 
erty Bonds, could participate in the work of assisting the Government 
with his or her mite by means of War Saving and Thrift Stamps. 

Under this plan, a thrift stamp could be obtained from the post office, 
practically each mercantile establishment, every school, either public or 
parochial, and most any of the shops and factories by paying twenty-five 
cents. 

Saving these stamps until they, with a few pennies added, amounted to 
from $4.12 to $4.23, they were exchangeable at the post office for a war 
saving stamp, for which the United States Government will in 1923 pay 
the holder $5.00. 

By this means, millions of dollars were raised by the children of the 
nation and the investors, who soon realized the war stamp proposition to 
be a better investment than even Liberty Bonds. 

In the work of disposing of war stamps, the citizens of Aurora, both 
old and young, took hold with a true spirit, and not only led the County 
of Kane, but ranked among the highest in the country, with nearly a half 
million in sales. The limit to stamp purchases was placed at $1000.00 to 
a person, and in Aurora 117 persons were placed on the honor roll as 
having obtained the certificate showing a thousand dollar purchase. 

From December 1st, 1917, until December 31st, 1918, the Post Office 
department in Aurora shows the following sales for the city:

HON. FRANK A. VANDERLiP 

FORMER AURORA MAN 

WORLD'S GREATEST FINANCIER AND THE ORIGINATOR OF 
THE WAR SAVING AND THRIFT STAMPS 



[ 332 ] 



In Aurora, with its many patriotic enterprises, the work of organizing 
and carrying on the stamp campaign fell to the Post Office officials, a mon- 
ster job in itself, to say nothing of the vast increase in the postal service 
line, caused by the parcel post and the Selective Service, or draft-board 
work. 

In the labor of disposing of these stamps a most efficient organization 
was established by Postmaster Louis A. Stoll and Elliott Pritchard, Sr., 
assisted by the officials and teachers of all schools, the postal employes, 
the Four Minute Men, Commercial Club, and the citizens in general, who, 
realizing the proposition as not only a patriotic one but a good invest- 
ment, urged the same on to the limit. 

Especially commendable was the great work of the mail carriers and 
the hundreds of school children. At the postoffice, Ernest G. Schmidt was 
in full charge of the stamp accounting, and from the reports on file in that 
office the mail carriers' sales are registered as follows: 

Edward Weidman $41,000.00 James J. Stubbs 17,498.56 

Mathew Treirweiler 38,559.09 Albert Retterer 1 1,363.00 

Fred Burkle 37,270.00 Arthur Farr 10,335.80 

William Perry 30,512.90 John Ivarson 10,110.00 

while the remainder of the carriers, working in the residence districts, 
Nicholas -Caas, Albert Davis, James Emigh, James Miller, Edward 
Flannigan, Robert Reid, August Spinck, Gustave Lundgren, William 
Lindgren, Edward Lindgren, George Lull, Hans Hanson, Hans Hen- 
drickson, Frank Gulp, William Beach, Fritz B. Smith, Ernest Mihr and 
John Carr, each disposed of over $5000.00 worth and raised the post- 
office sales to nearly $400,000.00. 

The month of August, 1918, with the week of the 15th to the 22nd, 
designated as Pershing week, was the banner month of the year, not only 
in Aurora, but throughout the nation, when a determined effort was made 
to show the Commander-in-Chief of the Expeditionary Forces and the 
fighting, boys in France, on the eve of the famous American advances 
through the German lines, that the nation was with them to the finish. 

In the schools of the city a most efficient organization was perfected 
by the teachers and officials, and, as a result, practically all pupils from 
the high schools down to the primary grades, worked like beavers for the 
coveted stamps.

Aurora Soldier's and Sailor's Auxiliary 

ON JULY 28, 1917, shortly after the declaration of war, a number 
of public spirited citizens, realizing that within a short time the 
hiilitia companies would be called to the "colors," to be followed 
later by calls upon the draft list for fighting men, organized the Aurora 
Soldiers' and Sailors' Auxiliary in order that everything possible should 
be done to encourage the boys who were to serve in the army and navy. 

This: organization was perfected under License No. 189 from the State 
Council of Defense for the following purposes : 

To encourage the Aurora soldiers and sailors in the performance of 
their duties. 

To foster patriotism of our soldiers and sailors and the residents of 
the community. 

To organize Aurora's manufacturing, mercantile, professional and 
social interests to back our representatives in the war. 

To create a fund for emergency purposes for the Aurora soldiers and 
sailors. 

To do our bit for our country during the period of the war. 

Its officers were : 

President Hon. James E. Harley. 

Secretary John M. Peffers. 

Treasurer Frank J. Knight. 

Executive Committee Dr. C. E. Colvvell, W. W. Stephens, John F. 

Holslag, John L. Walker, Charles F. Wade, Joseph Reid, E. C. 

Finch, David Richmond and John Schmitz. 

On August 7, 1917, while the members of the Third Regiment com- 
panies were recruiting to war strength and awaiting the mobilization call 
from Washington, the citizens of Aurora, under the guidance of the Army 
and Navy Auxiliary, tendered the boys a farewell chicken dinner and pic- 
nic at Fox River Park. 

On November 10, 1917, hundreds of the young women of the city, 
under chairmanship of Mrs. Theodore Worcester, conducted a Tag Day 
from which was realized $4300.00, which proved enough, whereby the 
Auxiliary officials were enabled to forward to every soldier, sailor and 
marine then in the service a Christmas check for $4.84. 

On September 12, 1917, the day before the Third Regiment left for 
Camp Logan, the Auxiliary presented, in the name of Aurora, a fine sad- 
dle horse to Col. Charles Greene and another to First Lieut. James San- 
ders, while on October 5, 1917, by energetic work, the society was able 
to convey to the company headquarters of the Aurora boys at Camp Grant 
a piano and Victrola with a supply of music for each. 



[ 337 ] 



During the month's training at Camp Logan, the officers of the Au- 
rora companies were at all times in charge of funds from the society, 
whereby any and all emergency calls for money were quickly met. 

Later, when the Patriot's Fund came into existence, the necessity of the 
Army and Navy Auxiliary terminated, that organization taking care of 
all demands for funds from whatsoever source. 

During its existence, great work was accomplished, its receipts amount- 
ing to $6878.25, while its expenses amounted to $5798.42. Upon the 
disbandment of the organization, the remainder of the funds in the 
treasury, amounting to $988.83, was donated to the Red Cross Fund. 



[ 338 ] 



Navy League 



WITH the declaration of war in April, 1917, Carroll Miller, then 
connected with the Western United Gas and Electric Co., inter- 
ested a number of the patriotic men of the community in an organ- 
ization, known as the Navy League. Its objects were primarily to assist 
the government in increasing the navy enlistments, so that when the army 
was ready for transport, Uncle Sam's growing navy would be properly 
manned for protection in transporting our troops across the Atlantic. 

Through this organization, a store in Broadway was secured, equipped 
with proper furniture and naval literature, and placed in charge of J. J. 
McGarry, a returned naval man. 

Great work in the matter of enlistments for the navy was accomplished 
at both this headquarters and also in the tent, later placed on the Island, 
adjacent to the. City Hall until the naval department, advising the Navy 
League throughout the county of its intention to assume full charge of 
the naval enlistment work. 

The local league then ceased its labors, with the proud record of having 
secured for the navy the highest percentage of recruits from the great 
Central Naval District. The Navy League, like most local organizations, 
was composed entirely of volunteer workers who also contributed all the 
funds needed to carry on the work in this city. 



[339] 



Aurora Churches 

DURING the terrible hours of war, when rumors of disaster were 
at times afloat, the work of encouraging our people and allaying 
their fears devolved to a great extent upon the clergy and mem- 
bers of the churches. Not only was this work successfully carried out in 
our city, but wonderful results were accomplished by the many church or- 
ganizations in all branches of the war servicee. 

In every church of Aurora, Red Cross units worked unceasingly for 
the cause; Liberty Loan campaigns were conducted from the pulpits; 
Thrift and Savings Stamps were recommended, all of which resulted in 
the wonderful record attained by the Aurora citizens in the successful 
ending of the war. 

Not only did the church people play a prominent part in the work of 
backing the boys, but nearly one-half of the boys who offered up their 
life and blood on the battle lines and warships were affiliated with our 
churches, as the following report shows:

Aurora Schools 

AS THE hands of Time move slowly around and we commence to 
realize the wonderful achievements of our soldiers, sailors and 
marines on the battle fields and seas, more and more brilliant 
appears the great work accomplished by the wonderful school system of 
our Nation. While many institutions of the nation and world failed to 
withstand the strain of the war, the school system not only weathered 
the shock and confusion, but rendered service to the city, state and nation 
which can never be estimated. 

Too much cannot be said or written of the great work rendered by the 
teachers and students of the Aurora schools during the late war. Coached 
to perfection with patriotic ideas by the unexcelled teaching corps, no war 
enterprise was carried to completion or success without the wonderful 
assistance of the student body of the local schools. They were in every 
undertaking, Liberty Loan campaigns, Red Cross work, Thrift and Sav- 
ings Stamp drives, Food and Fuel conservation, their youthful enthusiasm 
carrying their elders along to a successful termination in every instance. 

Only with the great work rendered by the students and teachers of the 
local schools in hours and days of toil did the Local Board for the City 
of Aurora, with nearly 9,000 registrants, accomplish its work designated 
by the War Department, the first in the great State of Illinois. Not an 
instance can be recalled, when called upon to work, that they failed the 
Board, and always proved equal to the task. 

The work of the teachers and students with the Local Board was but a 
small portion of the great work accomplished by the schools. Nearly all 
pupils were enrolled in the Junior Red Cross legion; hundreds toiled on 
Red Cross supplies; urged householders to save on fuel; bought thrift 
and savings stamps by the thousands; bought bonds, totalling nearly 
$100,000.00. Many students of the High schools took up the work of 
assisting farmers during the summer months, besides creating a patriotic 
enthusiasm throughout the community, never before attained in any city 
in the world.

Jewish Relief Work 

IN 1916, two years after the great world war commenced, it was real- 
ized in this country that the Jewish people, especially those residing 
in Russia, were still the principal sufferers of the cruel warfare in 
Europe. As in the years gone by, "God's Chosen People," as the Jewish 
people are mentioned in the Holy Scriptures, continued to suffer untold 
misery and hardships at the hands of the Russian classes, until the Ameri- 
can people, regardless of class or religion, took up the proposition of 
assisting this downtrodden race of Europe, not only with financial and 
moral support, but with food and medical supplies. 

In 1916, an Aurora Society, affiliated with the Chicago Relief Associ- 
ation, was organized with the following officers: 

President Israel Joseph 

Secretary Julius Zidell 

Treasurer Joseph Swimmer 

For one year and a half, Mr. Joseph served as the president, when he 
was succeeded by Albert M. Hirsh, the retiring president assuming the 
position of general solicitor for the cause. This society consisted of 
twenty-five members, who were ably assisted in their work by the entire 
population of the city to the extent that the following financial assistance 
was forwarded from this city to the afflicted parts of the world: 

1916 $ 3,513.11 

1917 3,137.35 

1918 7,379.50 

1919 9,969.06 



Total $23,999.02 

While this amount of money may seem small in proportion to the vast 
amount raised throughout the country, it reveals the fact that no matter 
what relief organization needed funds to carry on its laudable work, the 
Aurora people were always ready and responded most nobly with financial 
assistance. 

In 1919, on the call for further financial assistance for the suffering 
Jewish people of Europe, Aurora Township, under the Chairmanship of 
Honorable John M. Raymond, with an excellent campaign organization, 
quickly raised its allotment of $26,000.00.

HON. JOHN M. RAYMOND 
CHAIRMAN JEWISH RELIEF DRIVE IN 1919 



[ 350 ] 



Roumanian Patriots 

REGARDLESS of the fact that they were subjects of an alien enemy 
country, our Roumanian population, which of late years has been 
greatly increased, demonstrated to the citizens of Aurora, early in 
the war, their Love for the United States and its institutions, and through- 
out the unpleasantness of war, they participated with enthusiastic vigor 
in every patriotic movement launched in this vicinity. 

A large majority of this population was born in Transylvania, a country 
confiscated a number of years ago from Roumania by Austria-Hungary, 
and while unfortunate to have been born on Hungarian soil, they still 
retained the desire to be classed as Roumanian subjects. 

Early in the war, a committtee of these patriots, under the leadership 
of such men as George Demeter, Dr. A. N. Kitenplon, Gregory Olar and 
the late Rev. Fr. John Pop took up the work of Americanization of their 
friends, and as a result of their labors, every bond issue, saving stamp 
or other patriotic drive launched in the city was not only successful with 
this population, but always one of the first "over the top." 

Hundreds of these people immediately made their declaration of in- 
tention to become citizens in the Federal courts and many have not only 
filed for their final papers, but have taken advantage of the night schools 
instituted by the school authorities, with the view of not only improving 
their condition but becoming more enlightened concerning our institutions. 
Many enlisted in the military service, while the majority of the registrants 
of this nationality waived exemption before the war board, and in many 
instances implored the authorities to allow them to enlist to defend the 
flag, but because of the laws, promulgated by the government, this priv- 
ilege was denied them in most cases. 

During the summer of 1918, after the entry of Roumania into the con- 
flict, the great Roumanian Commission, visiting in this country for the 
purpose of uniting the subjects of that country residing in the United 
States to assist this government in every way, visited this city, addressed 
these people and thus increased the enthusiasm of the entire community in 
war work.

Home Guard 

WITH the departure of the Third Infantry to war, leaving the State 
without military protection from any possible internal trouble, 
the Aurora Commercial Club started an investigation by appoint- 
ing a committee, through whose efforts the Home Guard was organized. 
An instructor was hired and weekly drills were held at the Y. M. C. A. 
gymnasium. Over one hundred signed the original muster roll, and on 
December 26th, 1917, Unit No. 67, Volunteer Training Corps of Illinois, 
with a complement of commissioned officers and privates, was fully or- 
ganized and recognized by the Illinois State Council of Defense. 

Few people realize just how important it was that we should have mili- 
tary companies in this vicinity during the war, but the fact can now be re- 
vealed to the public that through Kane and Will Counties, Illinois, ran 
the principal trunk lines of the American railroad system, all entering the 
great city of Chicago. 

Can one estimate the damage that could have been caused the govern- 
ment of the United States and the allied cause if some alien enemy,' or 
unpatriotic person, with the inclination to damage the government, had 
with a few high explosive bombs discharged the same on any of the sev- 
eral bridges belonging to the railroads traversing the two counties? The 
result would have been that these important railroad systems, carrying, 
millions of men and millions of war supplies east, would have been stopped 
for some considerable period while repairs were being made. 

Although the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium, which had been so kindly do- 
nated for drill purposes, had served temporarily, the size of the com- 
pany necessitated larger quarters and the armory immediately became 
available. 

On May 4, 1918, after reducing the size of the company to the re- 
quired strength to be admitted as Reserve Militia Company, it was sworn 
in, and became known as "K" Company, 6th Regiment, I. R. M., with 
the following officers in charge: 

Ludwig L. Schliecker Captain 

Charles P. Wright First Lieutenant 

John C. Rayment Second Lieutenant 

During the period of the war, officers and non-commissioned officers 
assisted in training the draft men before entrainment to camp; did police 
duty at the request of the Mayor; acted as escort with the G. A. R. as 
drafted men, from time to time, were sent to the cantonments, and fur- 
nished firing squads over the graves of soldier boys whose premature 
deaths at the camps had cut short their military careers, but who had 
stamped themselves, nevertheless, as true heroes. In fact, the company 
became a necessary and useful adjunct in many ways to the community

during the war period. Complete uniforms were obtained through the 
combined efforts of the manufacturers, merchants, and the company, 
while the guns were furnished by the State. 

Aurora's military history would not be complete without the mention 
of Captain Charles S. Harkison, whose patriotism and loyalty have al- 
ways been of the hundred per-cent brand. Soon after his return and re- 
lease from his duties with Uncle Sam, he threw himself into the work of 
the Reserve Militia, and the State, knowing well his military ability, com- 
missioned him Major of the 1st Battalion, 6th Regiment of the Illinois 
Reserve Militia, which includes "K" Company of this city. His staff 
consists of Verne Hedin, Adjutant, John C. Rayment, Commissary Lieu- 
tenant, and Allyne F. Bradley, Sergeant Major. 

The following members of Company K enlisted in the Federal Service:

MILO M. PIERCE 

FUEL ADMINISTRATOR FOR AURORA AND THE 
HTH ILLINOIS FUEL DISTRICT 



[356] 



Fuel Administration in Aurora 

RESIDENTS of Aurora, for many years back, can hardly remember 
a harder winter than was experienced in this vicinity during the 
years 1917 and 1918, but thanks to the untiring efforts of Milo 
M. Pierce and his assistants, Lincoln B. Frazier and Earl F. Schoeber- 
lein in Aurora, Robert C. Hollister of Batavia, and Oscar Nelson of 
Geneva, little suffering was experienced from the want of fuel, despite 
the fact that many localities of this state did suffer for that commodity. 

In November, 1917, the national administration, realizing that the 
supply of fuel would be short, because of the great demand made to sup- 
ply the factories and war munition plants of all kinds, appointed state and 
district fuel administrators for the purpose of conserving fuel to the 
limit. With this great demand, came the unusual terriffic winter, with 
the thermometer hovering close to the zero mark for weeks at a time, all 
of which made the task of the local administration exceptionally hard. 
Mr. Pierce took charge of the fuel question on November 12th, 1917, 
and immediately issued rules governing the distribution and sales of fuel 
to consumers, fixing a maximum gross margin of profit for the dealers, 
besides governing the storage and use of all fuels. 

So acute was the situation at times that "Lightless Nights" were en- 
forced, in some instances with fines, several mercantile and numerous 
manufacturing concerns throughout the country being closed in order that 
the civilian population would not suffer for the want of necessary fuel. 

The orders of the fuel administrator were in most cases cheerfully 
carried out, as was the request of the officials to conserve gasoline, when 
99 per cent of the automobile owners of this city obeyed and not an auto- 
mobile was run on our streets on the several Sundays the ban was in 
existence. 

It is the proud record of Fuel Administrator Pierce, that during the 
trying times experienced that winter, not one institution was closed and 
not a single home was abandoned because of the lack of fuel, though at 
times the situation was such that the administrator was obliged to con- 
fiscate many carloads of fuel in transit through the city for other points. 
This result was attained by the local administration, principally, because, 
immediately following his appointment, he made a careful compilation of 
the amount of fuel which would be required to properly take care of each 
community in District No. 11, which extended from Aurora, north to 
Geneva, and included the southern townships of the county. In this way, 
his splendid organization kept the situation well in hand. 

In June, 1918, the following prices and regulations were issued to the 
dealers of the district, and, as a result, the fuel situation in the winter of 
1918 and 1919 was carried out to the satisfaction of everyone in the 
district.

sale. 

The work of the fuel administration in this vicinity ceased on April 
7th, 1919, with a record unexcelled by any district in the State of Illinois.

JOHN T. MASON 
FOOD ADMINISTRATOR OF AURORA AND KANE COUNTY 



[360] 



Food Administration in Aurora 

PEOPLE of this country, in general, little realize the important work 
accomplished, nor, perhaps, appreciate the work of the local Food 
Administration throughout the trying times of 1917 and 1918, but, 
nevertheless, this great department was one of the great factors in win- 
ning the war, because the food supplies played almost as vital a part as 
munitions to the allied army and the people backing the boys. 

Early in the war, the national administration realized that America 
must conserve its food in a way never before experienced in this coun- 
try, not only for needed supplies for the fighting forces, but to assist the 
foreign population with food, if the German war machine was to be de- 
stroyed. 

John T. Mason, one of Aurora's philanthropic citizens, was recom- 
mended and duly appointed County Food Administrator, with headquar- 
ters in Aurora, and his task of schooling the merchants and people in the 
art and necessity of food conservation was one of the hardest and most 
exacting of the many war activities in this city, especially so, when Mr. 
Hoover, the national administrator, ordered substitutes sold in equal 
quantities with wheat flour. 

According to the administrator, some merchants were slow to under- 
stand what substitutes were to be used with sales of wheat and war-flour. 
Instances were cited where some disposed of potatoes, some oats in bulk, 
while one sold baled hay with a 49-pound sack of flour. These cases 
were only extreme cases, and the violators were soon corrected by the 
food administrator, when the work of checking up with the dealer com- 
menced, and Mr. Dealer found he had a bulk of substitutes on his hands 
unsold. 

Several carloads of wheat were obtained in the county by the admin- 
istrator from wheat hoarders, and finally the administrator, to obtain the 
full amount of wheat grown in the county for consumption, organized the 
180 threshing outfits. By means of this organization, working in close 
harmony with the food administrator, all the grain was threshed and 
then rethreshed, so that little of the valuable food product was lost. 
While primarily this county is a dairy district, the amount of grain pro- 
duced and furnished was no small amount, as will be noted from the food 
administrator's figures for 1918: 

Rye 59,086 Bushels 

Wheat 1,000,000 Bushells 

Barley 1,004,933 Bushels 

Oats 2,276,926 Bushels 



Total 4,341,500 Bushels 



[361] 



While the flour proposition was a trial for the administrator, his real 
trouble was the sugar proposition, both with the careless grocer and the 
housewife, unwilling to abide with the rules as adopted by the national ad- 
ministration. Some grocers sold sugar to every one, whether a customer 
or not; some sold to people in 100 pound lots; some grocers obtained 
1,000 pounds of sugar when they were entitled to only 100 pounds, while 
an instance was reported where the grocer obtained 2,500 pounds, when 
his supply should have been only 235 pounds. However, the sugar pro- 
position was soon regulated by the administration, which went so far as 
to regulate the amount of sugar to the cup of coffee used. 

The use of sugar for canning was a hard task to regulate because of 
the fact that many disregarded the rules, and many unpatriotic people, by 
different means, obtained somewhat more than they were entitled to. This 
class of people were of the foreign element in most cases, and the real 
American housewife faced the shortage with her true spirit, making the 
most of the trying situation and existed on the allotment of two pounds 
per month per capita. 

During his administration, Mr. Mason was ably assisted in this city by 
Frank BeVier and the members of the State Council of Defense, together 
with the patriotic people of the community who realized the enormous 
task on his hands and were ready and willing to suffer almost anything to 
make the victory sure. 



[ 362 ] 




Steamship "Aurora" 

IN JUNE, 1918, the City of Aurora was honored by the U. S. Shipping 
Board, when Mayor James E. Harley was notified by Edward Hur- 
ley of that Board to the effect that a new steel steamship of 4000 ton 
capacity, designated as Hull No. 1005 and under construction in the ship 
building yards of Pusey and Jones at Wilmington, Delaware, would be 
named "Aurora" in honor of the Queen City of the Fox River Valley. 

By popular vote, conducted by the Aurora Theater Company, under 
instructions from the mayor, Miss Agnes Kirby, sister of the first Aurora 
boy to fall wounded, and cousin of the first Aurora soldier to die on the 
fields of carnage in France, was selected from a list of twenty-five young 
ladies of this city to act as sponsor for the City of Aurora at the launch- 
ing of the ship in the Delaware city. 

On July 4, 1918, at 10 a. m., in the presence of 25,000 people, many 
of whom were from this city, as Miss Kirby crashed the historic bottle 
against its sides, the ship "Aurora" glided gracefully and majestically 
down the runs of the ship yards and out into Delaware Bay, ready for the 
work of completion, to take its place in the convoys which were carrying 
troops and supplies from this country to France.

Burlington Railroad 

A MONG the wonderful accomplishments achieved by the Yan- 

r\ kees in the great war was the record established by the "railroad 

boys" of the nation, not only in the number of enlistments, but by 

the men who were required to "stay on the job" and handle the flood of 

transportation work demanded of them. 

Few railroads can equal, and none can excell, the magnificent record 
established by the efficient organization perfected by the Burlington Rail- 
road officials, especially on the Aurora Division. 

This division, extending from Galesburg, Streator and Savanna to 
Chicago, including the great locomotive and car shops at Aurora, on this 
gigantic trunk line, handled not only hundreds of thousands of soldiers 
and sailors, but millions of tons of freight, consisting of munitions, coal, 
and food for millions of people other than the military and naval forces. 

Few people realize the enormous responsibility, which for many months 
rested upon the shoulders of a few men living in Aurora, but they were 
equal to the occasion, and thanks to their careful attention, hundreds of 
thousands of men were carried to and from Camp Grant and from many 
western camps to the east and thousands of freight trains hustled through 
the city, all without the loss of life or destruction by wrecks, and gener- 
ally without the slightest delay. Never in the history of railroading on 
the Burlington were there so few wrecks, none of which could be regarded 
as serious. 

While an excursion train, containing troops en route from Camp Grant 
to a celebration in Chicago, was wrecked, with the loss of two lives, it 
was the proud record of the Burlington employes that not a government 
train, either troop or freight, was wrecked on the Aurora Division. 

One of the principal tasks in railroad work is the handling of the many 
trains on the system, and great credit is given to the train dispatching 
force in Aurora, consisting of Frank Curran, Thomas F. O'Conner, 
George Crawford, J. E. Lies, Jeremiah O'Conner, Charles Jordan, E. T. 
Mahoney, Walter Hull, F. E. Patelsky, E. W. Montgomery and C. E. 
Brown for the excellent record attained with the assistance of the many 
careful train and engine crews. 

During the war, the Burlington employes serving the nation in the 
army, navy and marines numbered 5032 men, many of whom, through 
their careful attention, work and bravery attained high rank in the forces 
to which they were attached. 

The hundreds of men and women employed at home in Aurora on the 
road and in the shops and offices not only worked at high speed, but a 
careful survey shows that all patriotic calls for funds, including Patriot's 



[ 364 ] 



Fund, Thrift and Savings Stamps, the Five Liberty Loans, Red Cross and 
many camp funds, met with a hundred per cent response on every occa- 
sion.

U. S. Department #/ Justice 

DURING the war, probably the most important department of the 
U. S. Government was the Department of Justice. It was. the 
task of the officers and employes of this department to uncover 
all plots against the government, find unpatriotic citizens and punish all 
violators of the government laws throughout the land. 

In this department, Aurora played a most prominent part with Hon. 
Charles F. Clyne, as U. S. District Attorney for the Northern District of 
Illinois, his assistant R. A. Milroy and Thomas Smith, Deputy U. S. 
Marshal in charge of all the prosecution and care of offenders in and 
about Chicago during the entire war period. 

During the war, the work of the District Attorney's office covered a 
larger number of cases than did the districts of Boston and New York 
City combined and included three of the most important cases of the 
United States, namely: 

The case of the United States vs. William Haywood, et al., usually 
known as the I. W. W. case in which ninety-five defendants were found 
guilty of a conspiracy to violate the Espionage Law, and were given sen- 
tences ranging from ten days to twenty years imprisonment. 

In the case of the United States vs. Jacobson, et al., five defendants 
were convicted of conspiracy to violate the neutrality laws of the United 
States. The proof showed that these men conspired to start a military 
expedition in the United States for the purpose of fomenting a revolu- 
tion in India. 

In the case of United States vs. Victor L. Berger, et al., five defend- 
ants were charged with conspiracy to violate the Espionage Law. All de- 
fendants were convicted and each was sentenced to twenty years impris- 
onment. All of the above cases are still under review by the District 
Court of Appeals on appeal by the defendants. 

Officer Smith conveyed many prisoners convicted in U. S. courts to the 
Federal jails for confinement.

Internal Revenue Department 

FIVE Hundred Thousand Dollars is the approximate amount of 
money collected by the Internal Revenue Department of the United 
States in Aurora during the few months of the war, under the three 
score internal tax classifications of the government. 

Early in 1918 with the increased number of revenue enactments of 
Congress to provide the necessary money for the carrying on of the gov- 
ernment and war, the Commissioner of Internal Revenue designated the 
counties of Kane, DuPage, DeKalb and Kendall as the Eighth Division 
of the First District of Illinois, with headquarters in the City of Aurora 
and branch offices established in Wheaton, Elgin, Geneva, DeKalb and 
Sycamore. 

P. F. Fullmer, General Deputy Collector was placed in charge of the 
District with Assistant General Deputy A. C. Weingartner, Corporation 
Income Tax Inspector, H. M. Gillette, H. T. McGrath, W. L. Stanton 
and George W. Larsen as assistants. 

Of the sixty-two different lines of taxes assessed by the government, the 
Income Tax, Liquor Tax and the miscellaneous taxes, such as manufac- 
turers, soda, admission and tobacco taxes were the most prominent in this 
section. 

During the year 1918, two thousand eight hundred fifty-three persons 
in the City of Aurora paid income taxes to the amount of $300,000.00 
while the other assessments paid by Aurora people amounted to over 
$20,000.00 per month. 

During that period the amount of revenue derived from liquor tax in 
Aurora amounted to $100,000.00, while the 13 cigar manufacturers of 
the city paid thousands of dollars to the government on their commodities. 

Notwithstanding the hundreds of thousands of people scattered 
throughout the district, few people either evaded or tried to evade pay- 
merit of the taxes levied by the government, as the records show only 97 
delinquents of Income tax returns being compelled to show Uncle Sam, for 
which penalties amounting to $10,000.00 were assessed.

The Public Library's Work 
in the World War 



WHEN the American Library Association began to get busy with its 
campaign to supply the soldiers and sailors of the United States 
with books and periodicals, the Aurora Public Library performed 
a modest part in furthering the work. 

Appeals to the people went forth, asking for contributions. These met 
with a generous response, not only from the people of the city, but from 
the people of the neighboring towns as well. About 500 volumes were 
boxed and sent to various camps. 

A form of scrap book was adopted and besides the work on scrap-books 
that was done in the Library, volunteers were called upon to help. In all 
about 70 of these scrap-books were made in this manner. 

When the Red Cross work in Aurora was well organized, and the 
Woman's Club of Aurora began to actively participate therein, the as- 
sembly room in the second story of the Library building was thrown open 
as a work room. It was a busy scene for many months. The service thus 
rendered was much appreciated and was duly acknowledged in the follow- 
ing note: 

THE WOMAN'S CLUB OF AURORA, ILLINOIS 

MR. W. S. BEAUPRE, 

President Aurora Public Library. 

The Board of Managers of the Woman's Club of Aurora extends thanks to the 
Board members and all employes of the Aurora Public Library for their co-operation 
in the Red Cross work done by the Woman's Club in the Library rooms. 

Sincerely, 

MARY G. WORST, 

Corresponding Secretary. 

Since the close of the war, the use of the same room in the Library 
building has been granted to classes of maimed soldiers that have been 
conducted by Miss Florence E. Watson, a Mooseheart worker. 

What the American Library Association, with the co-operation of the 
Public Libraries, throughout the country, did for the American soldiers 
and sailors, was an essential element in maintaining the morale of the men 
whom the country sent forth to make democracy safe throughout the 
world. 



[370] 



Aurora Factories 



WHAT an important part the factories of Aurora played in the win- 
ning of the war will probably never be known, but it is a fact that 
few cities of the United States the size of Aurora surpassed the 
amount of war supplies turned out by the manufacturing institutions of 
this city. 

Despite the great number of men who entered the service, at times 
crippling the working forces of a number of the factories, efficient organ- 
izations with patriotic employes continued to turn out the supplies which 
were needed by the "boys." 

At the time of the signing of the armistice, practically every factory 
in Aurora was pushing to the capacity on war work. 

Among the leading institutions engaged in war work were the 



Allsteelequip Co.

Aurora Cooperage Co. 
Aurora Cotton Mills

FRANK RADUENZ 
U. S. EMPLOYMENT AGENT IN AURORA 



[372] 



U. S. Employment Bureau 

ONE of the main factors in the acceleration of war work and the 
backing up of the boys in the camps and trenches was the United 
States Employment Service office, located in the post office build- 
ing. This office was established in April, 1918, with Frank Raduenz in 
charge, and Miss Margaret McEnroe and C. H. Starry as his assist- 
ants, and since its inception, they have directed over ten thousand men 
and women to work, of whom about eight thousand placements have been 
reported. 

During the war, workers of all descriptions, male and female, were 
directed from non-essential to essential work. The greatest number of 
these in Aurora were directed to rnetal shops, doing government work, 
and to farms for the production of food. The co-operation of this office 
with the local exemption board and the assistance it received in publicity 
work from newspapers made these endeavors highly successful. 

While most cities had their population depleted during the war, Au- 
rora increased its population in this period, notwithstanding the fact that 
over thirty-six hundred men entered the military and naval service. 

After the signing of the armistice, this office had to perform yeoman 
service in placing war workers back into normal pursuits. The office was 
in touch with over five thousand soldiers and sailors returning from 
camps, and advised them as to the proper courses to pursue for finding 
employment. About a thousand of the returning soldiers and sailors had 
to be redirected to new positions for various reasons. 

Federal funds for this office were discontinued March 22, 1919, but 
community interests supplied the funds to continue the office beyond July 
1, 1919. The popularity of the department and its work constituted the 
main reason for the Illinois State Labor officials and Governor Frank O. 
Lowden establishing an Illinois Free Employment office in Aurora. 

This office which is now a permanent institution and which at present 
co-operates with the federal employment service in Washington, D. C., 
continues placing the unemployed and returning soldiers, sailors and mar- 
ines to work. Frank Raduenz who was in charge of the U. S. Employ- 
ment Service office was appointed superintendent by Governor Frank O. 
Lowden. Henry J. Smith, a returned overseas soldier, was appointed as- 
sistant superintendent. Mrs. Josephine S. Harkins, an Aurora woman, 
but who during the war served with the New Mexico state draft board and 
later with the federal employment service at Santa Fe, was appointed offi- 
cial stenographer and detailed in charge of the directing of women and 
girls to employment.

Armistice Days 



SHORTLY after 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon, November 7, 1918, 
came the false report from the United Press at Paris that an armi- 
stice had been signed. Aurora like every city in the United States 
was, like a flash, in one wild and hysterical clamor; shops shut down; 
employes and citizens paraded the city; bells rang and whistles blew; 
men, women and children cried with joy, and joy was unrestrained for 
many hours, even after the official report denying the news had been for- 
warded from Washington. Never before was such a scene witnessed in 
this city or possibly in the country. 

MONDAY, Nov. 11, 1918 

Five minutes after 1 o'clock Monday morning, November 11, 1918, 
the official report of the signing of the armistice which ended the World's 
greatest war flashed into this city. Instantly factory, shop and engine 
whistles heralded the news to the slumbering people and almost as instantly 
every man, woman and child was out of bed to participate in the most 
glorious day of this generation. From that hour until long into the next 
night the people celebrated the glorious victory over the Imperial Ger- 
man forces. No tongue can tell or pen describe the scenes of joy dis- 
played in this city from which 3600 of its truest and bravest sons and 
daughters had gone out to battle the enemies of freedom on foreign lands 
and sea. Saloons of Aurora were closed by the Mayor and a free, unre- 
strained celebration was indulged in by old and young; parades marched 
up and down the streets; effigies of every description were devised and 
"Old Glory" was everywhere in evidence amid the noise and clamor from 
every conceivable noise-making instrument obtainable. The pride, pat- 
riotism and victory touched all hearts and never before did the wonder- 
ful words of "The Star Spangled Banner" sound so stirring and so full of 
meaning.

AT the opening of the war in April, 1917, the Aurora Bachelor Club 
had fifty-one members, of which forty-one entered the service of. 
Uncle Sam, the remainder being barred from military service by 
reason of physical rejections, industrial and dependency causes, a most 
striking example of how Aurora's sons flocked to the colors.

service and who attended the "Home Coming" at Phillip's Park on Sept.

Home Coming 



PRACTICALLY all the soldiers, marines and sailors having returned 
home from service, September 24, 1919, was designated as the day 
for Aurora's official home coming celebration to its brave. A more 
beautiful autumnal day could not have been wished for by the thousands 
who entered into the occasion to pay homage to the defenders of the flag. 

Forming in line at Lincoln Park at 10 o'clock that morning 2,000 sol- 
diers, sailors, marines, nurses, Red Cross workers, "Y" and K. of C. 
workers, many of whom had faced and defeated the grandest of the 
Kaiser's best regiments with cold steel, many with healed and unhealed 
wounds, many who had been decorated for valor on the field of carnage 
and many more who deserved, but had not had the coveted honors be- 
stowed upon them, men representing not only every division in the war, 
but every branch of service used to bring about the successful termination 
of the conflict, marched, as only soldiers of a righteous cause could, through 
the streets of dear "Old Aurora." 

With swinging step they moved amidst the cheering populace increased 
by thousands from surrounding towns, to receive the ovation justly given to 
the heroes of the World's greatest conflict. 

Never will Aurora witness such an inspiring scene as the parade of these 
young heroes, presented to the citizens of this community on that day. 

Following the parade the marchers were taken to Phillips Park by auto, 
there to enjoy the real old fashioned chicken dinner prepared by the 
women of the Red Cross organization under the leadership of Mrs. Grace 
Bliss. Seated at 125 tables placed in fan shape through that beautiful 
woodland, 2,500 men and women, the largest crowd to be dined at one 
time in Aurora, enjoyed to their heart's content the following menu: 

Fried Chicken Home Made Bread 

Creamery Butter Jelly Pickles 
Mashed Potatoes Cabbage Salad 

Hot Rolls 

Jam Ice Cream Cake 

Coffee 

A most beautiful feature of the day were the memorial exercises given 
in the memory of the 86 soldiers and sailors who gave up their lives de- 
fending the flag. Just as the sun was setting in the west, thousands with 
uncovered heads bowed in silent prayer, listened to the shrill notes of 
"Taps" resounding through the woodland, and then witnessed the unveil- 
ing of the service flag adorned with 86 gold stars designating Aurora's 
boys, never to return.

THE GREAT WORLD WAR 



AN ILLUSTRATED REVIEW 



m 




HEN the World War ended on November llth, 1918, the armed forces of 
25 nations of the globe had been hurling their armies against each other for 
more than four years in the most colossal struggle of history. After a con- 
flict without parallel, it ended in its 52d month \vith a casualty total nearing 
the ten million mark. 



Set off by the murder of an ordinary Austrian archduke on June 28th, 1914, by a 
Serbian political fanatic, the conflagration which had threatened the peace of Europe 
for decades was thus destined to embroil the leading powers of the world in the most 
costly and bloody strife known to man. 

After a month's diplomatic argument over the affair, Austria formally opened hostili- 
ties with her declaration of war on Serbia. General mobilization followed quickly in 
Russia; a "state of war" was almost immediately declared in Germany. Then on August 
1st Germany declared war on Russia, following this with an ultimatum to Belgium 
demanding that her troops be given free passage across that country. On August 3d, the 
Teutons included France on their list of enemies. This was followed next day by an 
ultimatum to Germany from Great Britain demanding that the neutrality of Belgium 
be respected. When this assurance was not granted by Emperor Wilhelm, Great Britain 




JJSTBA11ED1IEV1 






iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiniuimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin. iimimiiiiiiiiiumiiiimiiiumimiiiiiiiiimiimiilli 



declared war on Germany. A quick succession of war declarations finally involved the 
greater share of Europe by the end of the summer. 

Mad with the ruthless spirit of conquest the Central Powers marched their armies off 
to war in grand fashion, boasting that they would return by Christmas time, the con- 
querers of Europe. Their amazing preparations for the dream of world power almost 
brought within their grasp the greedy ambition of the Junkers. 

The initial successes of the German army in its advance through Belgium and on to- 
ward Paris astounded the world. England and France reeled and staggered before the 
terrific onslaught ol the famous Prussian Guards and the other crack armies of the Central 
Powers. Swept off her feet almost by the spectacular aggression of the enemy, the fate of 
France virtually hung from a thread as the invaders triumphantly swept on and on. 

Early in September, when they were practically within reach of Paris, the tide was 
turned against them in the battle of the Marne, September 6-10. French themselves 
attribute their good fortune at this point to the hand of the Almighty rather than to 
their superior military strength at the time. This marked the enemy's point of farthest 
advance. 

The atrocities of the advancing Huns during the months of their early triumphs and 
conquest have been called infamous by conservative journalists and correspondents. 
Suffice to say, their bloodthirsty ambition to rule and conquer the world knew no bounds, 
and that their acts and deeds of disgrace will forever remain one of the darkest of the 
many blotches brought on the German people during the European war. 

Believing that the United States had no part to play in the war at that time, President 
Woodrow Wilson, on August 4th, 1914, officially proclaimed the neutrality of the United 
States. The war was thus confined to Europe for many months, a struggle mainly 
between the two great European Alliances the Triple Alliance composing Germany, 
Austria Hungary and Italy, against the Triple Entente, composing England, Russia and

France. Italy, originally a member of the Triple Alliance, but later one of the chiei 
powers of the Allies, did not enter the war until 1915. She then declared war on all of 
Germany's Allies, but did not break with Germany herself until late in 1916. Before 
the war she was a member of the Triple Alliance with Germany and Austria but severed 
this connection to fight with the Allies. 

After the marvelous advances of the first year, the great battle line in Europe re- 
mained practically stationary for nearly three years and extended over more than 300 
miles. The large armies of each force fought doggedly, suffered heroically and died 
willingly, in a mighty death-grip whose battles surpassed the most famous of previous 
wars for loss of life and destruction of property. 

The superb Armies of the Russians in the Eastern theater kept the attention of a 
large German force occupied and away from the Western Front. This fact aided the 
Allies tremendously and probably prevented a German Peace in the second and third 
years of the War. 

It was while France, England and Italy were staggering before the last big offensive 
of the enemy early in 1918 that America's force was thrown into the balance in sub- 
stantial numbers. 

Her declaration of war against Germany on April 6th, 1917, grew out of the Central 
Powers' failure to recognize the rights of neutrals on the high seas. Repeatedly the 
rights of the United States were violated, and just as repeatedly Germany refused to 
discontinue her ruthless program of submarine warfare against the world. The sinking 
of the Lusitania on May 7th, 1915, without warning and with the loss of 1154 lives, 114 
of whom were Americans, was regarded by a great many as just cause for a declaration 
of war against Germany. The President and Congress believing differently, failed to 
act, and it was not until more sinkings of women and children that the United States 
decided to step into the breach herself. 






wiiilmmiiiiiiilliilllllimiliillliiilliiiiliiiiiiliiiiimmiiimiilli mm ..-, mm immimnmii 



Regarded as a mere "bluff" by her adversaries, the United States' entrance appar- 
ently failed to cause undue anxiety in Berlin. With an unprepared democracy for another 
enemy in which a great many were believed to have been opposed to war, Germany had 
little cause for worry, she declared. 

But America went to work. The act produced an electrical effect on her people and 
almost instantly united her various factions, creeds, parties, and nationalities for one 
purpose to crush Germany and her Allies. She became a workshop, with no hours, in 
her determination to end the European fight victoriously, and thus save democracy for 
the world. Every effort was bended to the cause, every penny of wealth was eagerly 
held ready for the call, and every atom of energy was expended in her feverish haste to 
redeem mankind. 

I ler sons by the hundreds of thousands rushed to the colors, as their fathers did in 
the wars of their day, to see another victory added to the flag which had never known 
defeat. That the distribution of soldiers throughout the land might be as nearly equit- 
able as possible, Congress passed the Selective Service Act in May, 1918, the greatest 
mobilization machinery developed by any of the 25 nations at war. 

Naturally there were obstacles and delays. A nation's task in rising up over night 
to send a formidable force three thousand miles overseas to fight for world freedom is 
not the kind that can be accomplished without some disorder and delay. But loyalty 
and union did it, and on June 26th, 1917, only two months after the declaration of war, 
the first American doughboy landed on French soil. On November 3d, 1917, the Yanks 
had their first clash with the Germans. On January 31st, 1918, a report reached America 
that American infantrymen were occupying first line trenches for the first time.

By this time the United States had declared a state of war existing with Austria 
Hungary, Germany's chief ally, and had swung her domestic machinery into the greatest 
war machine conceivable. She had begun to raise by popular bond subscriptions billions 
of dollars to supply guns and munitions, and food and clothes, for the boys who were 
going over to France to do the job. 

Four Liberty Loans were floated during the war, and the total subscriptions to these 
amounted to between eighteen and nineteen billions of dollars. This amount was taken 
by more than 50 million subscribers, and was to be only an insignificant factor in the 
financing of the war, according to the Treasury Department. This cost when compared 
with the total cost of the Civil War for four years approximately $4,000,000,000 is 
proof enough that the World War was not comparable with any previous war in history. 
In April, 1919, following the armistice, another Fifth or Victory Loan of approximately 
the same dimensions as the Fourth, was floated. The wonderfully prompt and generous 
response of the nation to each of the calls of the Liberty Loans was one of the greatest 
sources of inspiration for the men in uniform who had gone to fight for those at home. 
The same patriotic generosity that marked the success of the Liberty Loan was evident 
in each of the scores of war work drives that were conducted for the various relief and 
welfare organizations. 

Food conservation conservation of man-power, the work or fight order, the noble,, 
work of the women who sewed and knitted night and day for the Red Cross and the boys, 
the curtailment of profits a'nd the simple economy was practiced by rich and poor 
alike, were but a few of the many war time measures that characterized the life of Amer- 
ica's hundred and some million during the year and a half during which she was at war. 
No history of that war will ever have room for a just story of the part played by the loyal 
home folks those who waited and prayed, and worked and gave, to keep the home fires 
burning.

Foremost among the initial problems of America, alter preliminary plans for the 
raising of her army had been laid, was the problem of transporting them to France, so 
that their strength might be thrown against the Hun on the battlefield. Shipping was 
not available, and even though it was being increased at maximum capacity, still there 
was not more than half as much as was needed to transport the men in the numbers they 
were being trained and in the numbers they were needed by France and England and 
Italy. 

England gladly placed her available shipping at the disposal of the United States, 
and before the war had ended she had carried more than one million Yanks to the side 
of her own men and those of the French, or nearly half of those who hadgone overseas. 
The importance of the United States Navy in the war can hardly be exaggerated. Within 
less than a month after hostilities were declared, she had sent a detachment of destroyers 
to European waters. By October, 1918, there were 338 ships of all classes flying the 
American flag in foreign waters. The operations of the Navy during the war covered 
the widest scope in its history. They operated in European waters from the Mediter- 
ranean to the White Sea. At Corfu, Gibraltar, in the Bay of Biscay, on the Irish Coast, 
at the English Channel ports, in the North Sea and at Archangel, they did creditable 
work. This service was not as brilliant perhaps as that of the army, because the nature 
of its vital work kept it from the front. Even though its activities were probably less 
glorious, still they were none the less important and necessary to the cause. 

Naval men served on nearly 2000 craft that plied the waters of the globe, on sub- 
marines that had no fear of the under-sea perils, and in aviation where men of courage 
fought and prevented surprise attacks with new-found weapons.

In diplomacy, in investigation at home and in all parts of the world by naval officers 
and civilian agents, in protecting industry from enemy spies, in promoting new industries 
and enlarging older ones to meet war-time needs these are a few of the accomplish- 
ments that are outstanding in the part played by the Navy in winning the war. 

Shortly after the declaration of war, the submarine problem had become so acute 
and the merchant ship losses so great, it became necessary to adopt more effective methods 
in dealing with the problem and making shipping safer. The system of convoy was 
adopted at the suggestion of President Wilson. This, although it slowed up shipping 
by fully twenty percent, enabled a comparatively safe passage of troops and was probably 
the greatest stroke of the Navy during the war. 

During all the time the United States was engaged in the war the enemy's naval 
forces, with the exception of the submarines, were blockaded in his ports. This, of course, 
prevented naval engagements of a major character. The destroyers, submarine chasers 
and patrol vessels, however, waged an unceasing offensive against the submarine menace 
to shipping and troop convoy, and only three vessels were sunk. These were the Antilles, 
the President Lincoln and the Covington. Each was struck on her return voyage, so 
that the loss of life was comparatively small. Only three fighting vessels were lost as 
the result of enemy action a patrol ship, a torpedo boat destroyer and a cruiser. The 
other transports and destroyers struck by the enemy during the war reached port without 
loss of life. Other Transports carrying United States soldiers went down but these 
were being convoyed by the British Admiralty. Chief amcng these was the Tuscania, 
sunk off the Coast of Ireland February 5th, 1918, with a less of 110 lives. 

The most serious loss of life in the navy as a result of its war-time activity resulted 
when 111 officers and men of the Coast Guard cutter Tampa perished when their vessel 
was sunk in Bristol Channel, England, in September, 1918. The Tampa had been doing 
escort duty in the transport service. It had gone ahead of the convoy and was sunk 
soon after leaving the party.

With its record of phenomenal transport service in protecting troops and shipping 
against the enemy submarine offensive; its splendid co-operation with the British Fleet 
in keeping the German navy in port and Germany herself blockaded; its stellar work 
with the giant 14 inch long range guns at the front; and its subsequent spectacular feat 
in first bridging the Atlantic by air, the United States Navy had a share in the World 
War which although as previously stated is seldom characterized as brilliantly as that 
of the Army and Marines, still was equally important and essential in keeping the war 
wheels turning victoriously. 

The story of the activities of America's two million doughboys and marines in France 
is one which should be told in volumes rather than in paragraphs. From the time of 
their first clash with the Germans on November 3d, 1917, until they "let go" the last 
unwelcome guests against Fritz's lines early November llth, 1918 their deeds are a 
succession of courageous and brilliant performances of duty. 

"When I think of their heroism, their patience under hardships, and their unflinching 
spirit of offensive action, I am filled with emotion which I am unable to express," General

John J. Pershing declared in commending the officers and soldiers of the line of the 
American Army. "Their deeds are immortal, and they have earned the eternal gratitude 
of our country." 

This simple tribute to the brave American lads who fought and died in France is 
indicative of America's reverence for her heroic aimies. Their glory and fame will 
always live by the side of the deeds of their forbears in previous wars. 

In May, 1917, shortly after war was declared, General Pershing, well-known for his 
punitive expedition into Mexico, was selected by the War Department to command the 
American Expeditionary Forces that were to go to France. After gathering about him 
a small staff the General set sail. His reception in both England and France was only 
equalled by the readiness of the commanders of both armies to co-operate with the 
United States in the prosecution of the war, according to the General's own report. 

His general staff was organized in a short time and detailed plans worked out for the 
organization and training of the millions of American soldiers who were expected in 
France to help finish the Hun. Training areas, designed to give the final seasoning to 
fresh troops arriving from the States before their entry into the front lines, and officers 
schools for the various arms of the service were established. 

Extensive construction provided vast warehouses, supply depots, munition store- 
houses, and the like for the huge task ahead. Although France offered much in the way 
of both ordnance and quartermaster property for use by the American Army, still 
enormous quantities of materials of all kinds had to be brought across the Atlantic. 

Flocking into the Army from civil life were thousands of professional and business 
men with splendid talent along the lines needed to build up this immense service of 
supply that was to keep the A. E. F. in action. To meet the shortage of supplies due to 
lack of shipping, representatives of the various supply departments were constantly 
in search of supplies and materials in Europe. A general purchasing agency was pro-

vided, in order to better co-ordinate the purchasing and to prevent competition between 
departments of the army. So successful was this system in the American Army that 
it was almost universally adopted by the armies of the Allies before the war had ended. 

"Our entry into the war found us with few of the auxiliaries necessary for its conduct 
in the modern sense," General Pershing declared in his official report. "Among our 
most importent deficiencies in material were artillery, aviation and tanks. In order to 
meet our requirements as quickly as possible we accepted the offer of the French Govern- 
ment to provide us from their own factories with the necessary artillery equipment for 
thirty divisions. In aviation we were in the same situation and here again the French 
Government came to our aid until we were able to get our own air service program 
underway. The necessary planes to train the air service personnel were provided and 
we secured from the French a total of 2676 pursuit, bombing and observation planes. 
The first planes to arrive from America came in May, 1918, and a total of 1379 were 
received during the war. The first American squadron completely equipped by American 
production, including airplanes, crossed the German lines on August 7th, 1918. For tanks 
we also were compelled to rely upon the French. We were less fortunate here, however, 
for the reason that the French were scarcely able to meet their own production require- 
ments in this respect. It should be remembered by every American that the French 
Government always took a most liberal attitute in endeavoring to supply the shortages 
existing in the American Army." 

Speaking of the soldiers in Europe General Pershing outlines with words of praise 
the work done by the various welfare organizations and of the responsive attitude found 
among the soldiers by these organizations. 

"The welfare of the troops touches my responsibility as Commander-in-Chief to the 
mothers and fathers and kindred of the men who went to France in the impressionable 
period of youth. They could not have the privilege accorded the soldiers of Europe

during their leaves of visiting their relatives and renewing their home ties. Fully realizing 
that the standard of conduct that should be established for them must have a perma- 
nent influence on their lives and the character of their future citizenship, the Red Cross, 
the Young Men's Christian Association, the Knights of Columbus, the Salvation Army 
and the Jewish Welfare Board, as auxiliaries in this work, were encouraged in every 
manner possible. The fact that our soldiers, in a land of different customs and language, 
have borne themselves in a manner in keeping with the cause for which they fought, is 
due not only to the efforts in their behalf, but much more to other high ideals, their 
discipline, and their innate sense of self-respect. It should be recorded, however, that 
the members of these welfare societies have been untiring in their desire to be of real 
service to our officers and men. The patriotic devotion of these representative men 
and women has given a new significance to the Golden Rule, and we owe to them a debt 
of gratitude that can never be entirely repaid."

The First Division of the American Army, after finishing its preliminary training 
behind the lines, went to the trenches for the first time in October, 1917, as the first 
contribution to the fighting forces of the Allies. By the time that the great German 
offensive in Picardy began, on March 21st, 1918, the American army had four experienced 
divisions in the line. The great crisis that this drive developed, however, made it im- 
possible for the Americans to take over a sector by themselves. Gradually, as their 
numbers increased and more reserves, fresh from the States, were placed in training 
behind the lines, the American boys went in in substantial numbers. Already they had 
displayed their splendid fighting qualities and had demonstrated that as soldiers they 
had no superiors. Incidentally, it did not take them long to convince the enemy that 
contrary to their own opinions, they themselves were not invincible. 

On August 30th, 1918, the American forces took over the first American sector, in 
preparation for the St. Mihiel offensive. The American line was soon extended across 
the Meuse River to the west edge of the Argonne Forest. The concentration of tanks, 
aviation units, artillery equipment, and materials of all kinds for this first great American 
offensive was enormous. The scores of elements of a complete army were moulded 
together, with American railroad and American service of supply units throughout. The 
concentration included the bringing up of approximately 600,000 troops. The French 
Independent Air Force, together with British bombing units and American Air forces, 
placed the greatest aviation personnel that ever took part in any Western Front offensive 
under the direct command of General Pershing. 

On the day after they had taken the St. Mihiel Salient a great share of the corps 
and army artillery that had operated in that offensive were on the move toward the area 
back of the line between the Meuse River and the western edge of the Argonne. The 
German General Staff was well aware of the consequences of an American success along 
this line, and it was determined to use every available American division in an effort 
to force a decision at this point. The attack began on September 26th. The work of 
the American army and of the American engineers in this drive will forever remain in

the memory of generations to come. Forcing their way through the densely wooded 
and shell torn areas, their fight was one of the most brilliant battles of the war. The 
offensive was maintained until October 4th in the face of innumerable wooded patches 
of snipers and concealed machine gunners. 

Fresh troops with little experience were thrown in with their seasoned comrades, 
who had become veterans over night with this most crucial battle as their teacher. The 
second phase began with a renewed attack all along the front on October 4th. More 
positions were taken with a precision and speed that always characterized the Yank 
army. Their dogged offensive was wearing down the enemy, who, continuing desper- 
ately by throwing his best troops against them, was helpless before the spectacular 
advance. 

At this juncture two divisions were dispatched to Belgium to help the French army 
near Ypres. On October 23d, the last phase of the Meuse-Argonne offensive began. 
Violent counter attacks by the enemy lost him heavily, while a regrouping of the Amer- 
ican force was going on for the final drive. Plain evidences of loss of morale in the enemy 
forces gave our men added courage and spirit, and finally, using comparatively fresh 
divisions, the last advance was begun on November 1st. It was apparent at this time 
that the end was near for the Boche. Our increased artillery support did remarkable 
work in supporting the infantry, which by its dashing advance of the several weeks 
preceding had destroyed the Hun's will to resist. 

Between September 26th and November 6th they had taken 26,059 prisoners and 
468 guns on this front. 







The divisions engaged in this, the most important of America's battles in the Eu- 
ropean war, were the 1st, 2d, 3d, 4th, 5th, 26th, 28th, 29th, 32d, 33d, 35th, 37th, 42d, 
77th, 78th, 79th, 80th, 82d, 89th, 90th and 91st. Many of these divisions remained in 
line for a length of time that required nerves of steel while still others were put back in 
the line after only a few days of rest. 

When the armistice was signed following a complete routing of the enemy by Amer- 
icans in the Argonne Forest there were in France, according to General Pershing, ap- 
proximately 2,053,347 troops, less the casualties. Of this total there were 1,338,169 
combatant troops. Up to November 18th the losses were: Killed and wounded, 36,145; 
died of disease, 14,811; deaths unclassified, 2,204; wounded 179,625; prisoners, 2,163; 
missing in action 1,160. As against this casualty total, the American forces captured 
about 44,000 prisoners and 1,400 guns, howitzers and trench mortars. 

In this short summary of the principal activities of the United States' part in the 
great war it is obviously impossible to more than skim over the various features of the 
great war machinery. The heroism and gallantry of the boys who fought and died over 
there; the unceasing devotion and courage of the parents and citizens at home who 
stood by them so unselfishly; and the determination of everyone, young and old, to unite 
for the common cause, setting aside their personal desires and interests, was responsible 
for the glorious victory in which America was so conspicuously instrumental in bringing 
about. Outstripping a hundredfold the dimensions of any previous war of the United

States, the task accomplished was a revelation to all when viewed in retrospect. The 
accomplishments of the Liberty Loans, the devotion of the millions of mothers and 
sisters in behalf of the Red Cross, the wonderful response of the country to the operation 
of the Selective Service Act in raising an army of millions the sacrifices of all, at home 
and abroad, were universal during the year and a half at which America was at war. 

Loyalty and love of country were terms with new meanings. Sedition was lurking 
only here and there, and this was promptly done away with through the efficient secret 
service department and popular opinion. The four million American boys who were 
under arms, many of them at the front and the remainder eager for the chance to jump 
in, convinced the world that the fighting blood that gave birth to their nation had not 
been diluted through the riotous living of a century. The brave lads who gave their 
lives and are now buried over there went to their fate with hearts full of joy, and in a 
manner that gave courage to the veterans of four years who fought beside them. And 
their brave mothers in the States who waited in vain for peace to bring their sons back 
to them, made the greatest sacrifices within their power with a courage and willingness 
that was unequalled even by the Spartans themselves. 

When the history of the great European struggle is permanently written, there will 
be no more brilliant chapters than those telling of the part played by the United States 
of America in stamping out militaristic autocracy from the world.
