lad by the name " of Charles E'
Gavin, vho had left his home near
Warsiaw to do his part'in a noble -

Peace was. not far off m that,

"V Gavin didn't hesitate. 'When the

ends, Gavin was not among them,
ne nad aied lor a cause.
' But he was not forgotten. His
' body was brought to America, and
. now rests in the family cemetery,
near Warsaw, ' And the local post
of the American legion bean his

: bravery and as a token of eontin
ous love and reverence to the ty

Young Gavin was not the only
; soldier from this section to take
part in that memorable battle of
the Iffeuse-Argonne; ' -.
In the same section were our

let's not forget just what we are
celebratingthe signing of the
Armistice, the dav when hovs -and

joyfully, at their release fronv po

They failed to return. Many more
returned nanus limbs, eyes, or o

Therefore, let us remember
that we are not only celebrating
the day when peace reigned once
more, but we are paying a tribute
to men who died, men who . were

keep- in mind the black side of
war and work to prevent another
