£• Ji WILLIAM SMILEY WILBUR SMILEY MASON CITY TWINS AT FORT KNOX—Word has just been received by Mr. and Mrs. W. 0. Smiley, 708 S. Van Buren, that their twin sons, William and Wilbur Smiley, are • now stationed at Fort Knox, Ky., with the 54th armed FA battalion. * The 2 boys joined the army here in Mason City last month with their cousins, Ronald Paul and Edward C. Warner, both of Mason City. The twins were born May 21, 1930, and received all their schooling in Mason City. At Fort Knox they met another Mason City boy, Leo Quinones, they wrote. After their basic training and schooling, all 4 boys will go to Japan. The twins, as is army policy, will stay together as long as they desire, army officers here ' point out. The twins also found out that the army really means it when they say they are "new. 1 The old slam-bang "train 'em whether they can take it or not" of the war years is gone. Emphasis today is on individual training and the sincere objective is to qualify the man for the biggest job he is capable of handling, according to the officers. Outside of being a little homesick the boys are happy in their new life. All 4 boys were employed by the Mason City Brick & 'Tile company before joining the army.
