Robert Kelley acquired his educa tion in Crested Butte, where his youthful years were passed, and when his parents moved to California he resigned his position, which, he had held for years in one of our I irgest mercantile establishments, to accompany them, and held a fine po sition with a hardware company in Oakland when called to the colors. He was 24 years of age and was a noble representative of America’s cleanest manhood. All of Crested Butte personally knew and loved Robert Kelley, and all personally sympathize with the bereaved parents and four sisters who have faithfully, hopefully kept the home fires burning. * UNITED WAR WORK CAMPAIGN Intensive Campaign November 11 te It, IslL National Gcal $250,000,000.00 Colorado’s Apportion ment 1,906,000.00 Gunnison Co. quota .. 8,700.00 Cennty Committee County Chairman, Mr. James Her bert Kelley County Vice-Chairmen: Rev.
