Private Homer N. Ake who has been honorably discharged from oversea service in the 37th Division, Company B, 136th Machine Gun Battalion will give an address in the Lutheran church on Sunday evening at 7:30 o’clock. Mr. Ake has seen service over a large part of the line, and will tell many interesting things about the actual fighting and battlefield experiences. His address will consist of interesting information as well as entertaining reminiscences of battles through which he has passed. We have been reading the reports in the newspapers, this address will now give us the record of an eyewitness. The public is invited to attend and hear this address.
