On Saturday, September 25th, a committee of the local unit United Service Women of America, with Mrs. Albert Ogren, chairman, will contact the citizens of this community in behalf of the Iowa department of Disabled Veterans, and offer to the public the little blue flower known as the Forget-Me-Not.

It should be remembered 'that these disabled men and •worsen, in the majority of cases, lhavfc been discharged and no Tionger receive pay from the service 'from which they have been discharged. In many cases their claims for compensation have not as yet been adjudicated, and for that reason they are without any Income.
