' Fortunately we have had no disasters, and have been free to devote our time to looking after the" Interests of our people, parti cularly our veterans. In January cf tbis year, our Chapter presented the claims of seventy-live veterans to the Hoard of Pensions, awaiting the time when these claims may be paid. Our local chapter has sent twen ty boys to the Army and Navy, thereby securing them employment and enabling them to assist theit families. We are particularly elated over the success we have had in assist ing our disabled veterans to ob tain hospital care, and in securing their pension. We have just thit month succeeded in getting the pension for a peace-time veteran who had lost his discharge, who was paralized so that be could nei ther write nor speak. He had only his discharge from a Veterans Hospital dated twenty-five years ago. and which did not bear his serial number. This information was passed on to the American Red Cross at Washington, and they delved into the old Army rec ords, located this man's number, and were thereby enabled to pres ent this veteran's claim to the Vet frans Administration, who has granted this man a pension. We are happy at all Wmes to as sist our Veterans with any prob lems , they may present. Unfortu nately we -40 not have funds on ana'igryyTtoafreW but we are never too busy to give our time to aid our Veterans. Do not hesitate to call upon us. Wc serve. Mrs. J. S.
