At the conclusion of the examination given to test the applicant's knowledge of U. S. History and government, conducted by Hon. R. K. Doe of Duluth an Americanization program was given under the auspices of several of the civic organizations of Warren.. Mrs. Geo. E. Davis welcomed the new citizens on behalf of the Woman's Club of Warren. Supt. Holmquist congratulated the new citizens and pointed out some of the privileges, duties and responsibilities assumed by them as citizens. Mr. Josephine Sizer, state president of the W. C. T. U., who happened to be present and Mr. Doe, the naturalization examiner for the government, also delivered fine addresses. Mr. M. F. Pihlstrom on behalf of the Warren post of the American Legion presented to each new citizen a silk flag as a gift from the post. The ceremony as a whole was solemn and no doubt left a lasting impression upon those who were given the rights of citizenship in the great American republic.
