Haase, R. G. Payne. M. Palmer, F. Larson, H. T. Nelson, R. Weisbrod, M. Kain, F. Dehnert, M. Grubb, L. Keuchen- reuther, H. Murray, L. A. Wolf. C. Carlson, M. Patterson, G. Otis, A. Oppcdahl, H. M.

Montgomery, corftinandcu of the local V. F. W. post, must be-given credit for the enrolling of the 2,000 names. He has beim working in that direction for many months, searching for and checking upon every name which goes through the local draft board, ur (hose who enlist, here or in othci localities, so long as they are Kossuth boys. And it has been one big job needing much patience and following up many details. The Kossuth Honor Roll board is a project sponsored by the V. F. W. post. And the average Kossuth citizen when asked how many Kossuth boys are in the service answer "about 1,500," indicating how really little Kossuth citizens realize the extent of service Kossuth boys are giving their country. There are 2,000 names and monthly more are being added. But how wonderful it would be f there were no more stars added to the roll.
