Mrs. Augusta Schlinkert and sons, William, Theodore and Robert, and Mrs. Pagenkopf and John Pagenkopf went to Ft. Atkinson Monday to attend the funeral of a cousin. Mrs. Schlinkert and William went on the train, the others of the party making the trip by auto.

W.D. Dangers and Henry Lindsley were in the neighborhood of Thorp on Saturday evening and Sunday and Walt is firmly convinced that he was but two jumps behind the Kruegers when they arrived at the shanty which the two Neillsville boys were preparing for the deer hunting season.

Robert Lee came home Sunday to spend a ten-day furlough with his mother and sister. Robert was foreman of the Times office until last November when he enlisted in the aviation corps. He was at Waco for several months and was placed in the aviation corps band, which organization he has belonged to ever since. He is now stationed near New York City and as the boys have been there for several weeks, they are very much in hopes that their time to go across will soon be here. Bob recently made a flight with a lieutenant and since that time he is much enthused over the aviation department and has applied for admission to a training school with the hopes of some day being a real flyer. He looks well, has gained 35 lbs. since he left Neillsville and gives every evidence that army life thoroughly agrees with him.
