Dr. Sarah Rosekrans lead in group singing of the national anthem. Those who petitioned for naturalization on that day were Marie Agatha Grabara of Greenwood, Mary Neimat of Willard, Theresia Kapusta of Granton, Regina Anna Westhoff of Loyal, Franziska Elpert of Abbotsford, and Helen Margaret Preston of Neillsville, Wis.
