when the committee of awards of
the Virginia Section of the Ameri

search for a master t her of chem

that those eligible for such recog

This search proved conclusively
that the chemists of Virginia had
made an extremely wise decision
in honoring each year an outstand

simply because such an individual
as a rule, is not appreciated and is
seldom recognized until he or she
goes into industry or moves out of

A soul has gone
To its renting place
He gave his all
In man's raee
He fought for our Country
And in this fight
He never gave thought
Of his own plight.
He was a hero
In tho Army of War
But a greater Hero
To the town of Warsaw.
He was admired and loved
By all who knew him.
In life was a Gem.
There will be a dance given at
