CHESTER PALMER COMES
HOMfrf FROM BATTLE ZONE
One by one the boys are coming
home, and we are glad to see them.
Chester Palmer arrived
night, and Mr. and Mrs. Will Palmer
were thus made happy. Chester was
in time to attend the 50th wedding
anniversary of his grandparents, Mr.
and Mrs. J. M. Anderson.
Chester entered the war about the
time the kaiser got sassy with the
United States and stayed by until the
kaiser hunted for cover. He was In
the war zone for eight months and
was at the front for seven months.
He landed at Newport News, Va., on
the return trip March L2th, or 14
days after he left France.
THE BOULEVARD AND
A MEMORIAL FOR SOLDIERS
Editor Times; Complying with your
request for an expression relative to
the rebuilding and otherwise improv

our community who made the sup
sàcrifice in the past war, will

If the tax payers of Meridian were
buncoed in not getting value received^
for the. money exepnded in the Origi
nal construction this is not a good
effort should be made to
better the plight in which we now
find ourselves. Had Jonah reconciled
himself to the predicament in which
he found himself after being swal
lowed up by the whale and had made
effort to free himself, he likely
would be there yet but we can imag
ine that Jonatj's efforts fo free Utm

or death. Meridian should he no less
energetic In freeing herself from a
predicament that may mean life or
death to her continuing on the state
To Meridian, view it from whatever
angle you may, the highway is a com
mercial necessity. So let's off with
our coats and up with our sleeves and
put our share of the. highway In a
condition that will he a credit to our
town and a joy to ourselves.
It is only natural that a community
that has contributed ti the success
of the past war (in lives) as has Mer
idian, should have a desire and long
ing to do something to show and to
perpetuate its appreciation. In the
kindest spirit possible, I wish to state
that some communities seem to be
overzealous in their anxiety to erect
what seemingly to them, would be a
suitable and appropriate memorial,
but which, to my mind, to an extent,
tends to commercialize the sacred
ness of the memory of oi(r beloved

means let's have the boulevard or at

itable matter, but let us do it from a
commercial standpoint and because It j
