War Veteran Buried.
' The funeral services for Wallace Ol
son, son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Olson,
were held from Tellefson’s undertaking
parlors and the Norwegian Lutheran
church last Monday afternoon. Rev.
Emil Grefthen preaching the sermon
and officiating at the grave.
Wallace Olson was a spidier in the
late war, with the rank of sergeant in
the motor transport branch. In April,
1917, he enlisted and on Feb. 1, 1918,
landed in France. During the discharge
of his duties at the front he contracted
pneumonia and Sept. 26, 1918, he
died in a hospital at Chaumont. At the
request of the family the body was
brought back to the United States.
Arriving at New York a military es
cort was furnished and the remains
reached Edgerton last Friday. Wallace
Olson worked near Hartford before en
listing, and when his soldier friends
there received the message that his
body would be laid at rest in Edgerton,
13 comrades in uniform came over to
join the Ralph Amundson post of Ed
gerton in doing military honor to the
dead soldier.
The Edgerton Concert band, playing
a suitable march, led the procession
from the undertaking rooms and again
from the church; after them came the
military standard bearers and the sail
ors in uniform, then the firing squad
and the company of soldiers. The
Service Star Legion carrying their flag
marched to the church and drove to
the cemetery in automobiles, followed
by many friends of the bereaved fam
ily. After the religious ceremony at
the grave, and the military salute, Mr.
Frank Russell, commander of the G.
A. R. post, stepped forward and
planted an American flag upon the
grave, reiterating the promise “That
these (soldiers) shall not have died in
vain.’’ A touching moment was the
presentation of the American flag,
which covered the casket, to the moth
er of the dead soldier. Mr. Leon El
lingson made the presentation as of
ficer in charge.
The deceased was born at Clinton,
this state, July 25, 1892. Besides his
sorrowing oarents he leaves to mourn
for him his brothers, Ole of Clinton,
James of Los Angeles, Oscar and John
at the home of the parents, also two
sisters, Tillie of Chicago and Mary at
home. All these, except the brother in
California, were present at the funeral.

Memorial Hospital Meeting.
Friday last week the officers of the
Memorial hospital boards had arranged
to hear certain plans of hospital con
struction and equipment presented by a
representative of one of the leading
firms of hospital architects in the United
As many of the members of the board
of trustees and of the board of direct
ors as could be present met with this
architect at 1:15 in the directors’ room
of the library for a conference. Later
a meeting to which the public had been
invited was held in Culton Memorial
hall. The high school kindly lent the
services of their lantern, and the archi
tect showed a number of slides of hos
pital construction and equipment while
fie gave a most scholarly exposition
the great advantages obtained in build
ing and equipping hospitals according
to the latest results of investigations
made for the purpose of finding a type
of an ideal hospital. Some of the doc
tors and several of the nurses were
present, and a fair sized audience.
No definite steps were taken, as the
board of trustees feel that haste is not
the best policy, but slow and careful
investigation in order that in a matter
of such importance no move is made
which adds unnecessary expense, and
that when those in charge feel that
they are ready to move, they can move
with the assurance that the plans are
right and that no just criticisms can be

Edgerton Loses to Lake Mills.
The Highway Trailers dropped their
first game of the season in the Tri-
County league at Lake Mills Sunday in
a*ten inning session by the count of 5
to 4. It was hardly possible to have
beaten Lake Mills Sunday with Umpire
Statz in charge. His decisions were
the worst that have been witnessed in
these pp.rts since the league was organ
ized, and they were of a partial na
ture, Edgerton getting the bad end of
it all the way. His decisions on balls
and strikes were bad, but his base de
cisions were even worse, not only on
one occasion but on several.
The locals scored in the first inning
on a base on balls to Silverthorn and a
double by Stuvengen. They held the
lead until the third frame when Lake
Mills scored two runs on a Dase on
balls, a hit, a fielder’s choice that re
sulted in an error and a hit. Melzer
retired three men on strikes after this,
out of the four next men to face him.
They added one more in the fifth on
two hits, and another in the sixth when
an error paved the way for a run. The
game remained a tie until the tenth
when the first two men up singled.
Wooten then relieved Melzer.
out Falk, Kohle went out, Van Rue to
Stuvengen, and Frandsen made his only
hit of the game, scoring the winning
run. Edgerton had a great rally in the
fifth which netted three runs. Frand
sen and Nowak took care of Van Rue,
G. Whitford singled, Olson''followed
suit, L. Whitford flied out to Hammon,
Silverthorn singled scoring G. Whit
ford, Maragi singled scoring Olson and
Silverthorn, Stuvengen struck out.
