His First Birthday Away From Home Over Forty Years
James Wilson, a well to do farmer of Laclede County, Mo., is
in Drumright visiting his son, J. Arthur Wilson, a deputy sheriff. While here
he passed his sixty-ninth birthday, the first birthday he has spent away from
home for forty years. He is planning to return to his home next week.
It is the belief of Mr. Wilson that a campaign of war
education should be conducted throughout the rural districts to impress upon
the farmers just what this war means. He says there is little discussion of the
conflict among the farmers, many of them do not realize fully what it will mean
to lose this war, its causes and how the United States became involved.
Mr. Wilson was surprised to find as busy a city
as Drumright. (Drumright Evening Derrick, Saturday, December 1, 1917, front
