Vanguard of Veterans Arrives
in Charleston for Big
CHARLESTON, W. Va., Sept. 1.
?The first of the 3,000 members
of the Eightieth Division Veterans'
Association who are expected
to be here for the annual reunion
began to arrive today and headquarters
were opened in the Ruffner
Hotel. The reunion will begin
officially tomorrow and last
through Monday, with events planned
for nearly every minute of the
three days.
Difficulties in rinding sleeping
quarters for ail the "buddies" were
partly solved today when a number
of cots and blankets held by tho
Navy Department at the naval ordnance
plant in South Charleston
were made available.; It had been
calculated that hqtela'pould accom-mmm
and a 'Campaign to find quarters
for others in private' homes had
brought many offers of "rooms for
two or more of the former soldiers.
However to find room for all! it
was expected cots would have to be
set up in halls and lodge rooms,
and when these were asked from
the navy officers the committee
learned regulations prevented such
a loan. State Treasurer W. S.
Johnson telegraphed Senator Sutherland
asking his aid and received
a reply that the Navy Department
had instructed Capt. J. F.
Hellwig, in command at the plant
to lend the equipment.
Streets in the center of the city
took on a gala appearance today,
decorations of^businesB houses being
supplemented by banners
strung across the principle'streets
on which were the names of French
towns where the division was quartered
or around which its victories
were centered.
One of the first to arrive was
the Rev. Thomas Hooper of Mitchell,
Va., the division's "fighting parson"
who is to speak at the memorial
services on Sunday. Maj. Gen.
