SONS HOME FROM SERVICE---PLAN FAMILY REUNION LSunday will be a day of ,general rejoicing at the H. A. Stockton home near Aladdin if pla~s for a family reunion are fulfilled. Pet. Charles Stockton who is taking training at Fort Bliss, 'Texas, was in Sundance Tuesday with his father and sister Bessie. Juanita Walters, who works at the shipyards at Portland and an- other daughter of the Stocktons, is expected home too. 'They expect another son, SISgt.. James Stockton, home this week after~two years overseas. He has bee*n in Africa, ~icily, Italy, Cor- sica and lately has been serving in France. Just recently he had written home after passing his third birthday and Christmas ov- erseas at that time he thought the prospects for a return home very gloomy. To be home Wednesday to com- plete the family reunion is a step- son, Norman L. Proffitt, master .mechanic, who has been station- ed in the ~outh Pacific for over two years. "There is one tht~g I always think of Just before we go into action~how we used to do things at home and try to picture my brothers and sisters all together enjoying ourselves as we used to do a short time ~go. It seems like decades since we have been that way," he wrote in November now those scenes will come to life for him and the others of the family.

X Bulldogs Defeat Newcastle Tue lay Tuesday night on their home floor the Sundance Bulldogs raced to a 38 to 27 victory ~gai~st the Newcastle five. The visitors made the first ,basket but were ,behind at the end of all periods. Last Quarter Rally Makes Sturgis Victor The previous Friday the Stur- gis quintet defeated the Bulldogs in a game which seemed assured to Sundance until the last quar- ter. The Bulldogs led the first three quarters but Sturgis then rallied to score 17 points while holding Sundance to 2 points to overcome a 22-16 Sundance lead. The final score stood 33 to 24 in favor of Sturgis. X ARMY NEEDS WOMEN FOR MEDICAL CORPS On February 2 Sgt. Helen Gal- loway and Cpl. Zigmund Chwirka from the Casper Recruiting office will be in .Sundance to interview women for service with the Wom- en's Army Corps. They will be at the post office that day. At the present time emphasis is being placed on the urgent need for many more Medical Tech- nicians to serve in the army hos- pitals. Many women possess the qualifications which will enable them to enter this type of work at once; while those who are in- experienced will be trained in one of the Army medical, schools. Two years of high school is all that is now ~ecessary for other- wise qualified women to be eli- gible for attendance to these medical or surgical technician schools. Says Lt. John R. Knurl- sen, head of WAC recruiting in Wyoming, "The army recognizes that the num,ber of years in school does not always give a true picture of .a person's ability. Ex- tenuattn,g circumstances some- times require some very i~telli- gent people to quit school before ,graduation." Cpl. Leslie Raber Killed In Crash Final rites were held Friday from the Methodist church in Belle Fourche for Cpl. Leslie Ra- her, 19, who was killed while on a combat training flight. Rev. L. A. Johnson officiated at the service and burial was made at the Pine Slope cemetery. Leslie was born at Colony Ap- ril 18, 1925, the son of the for- mer Mr. and Mrs. Sam Raber, ,both of whom died while he was still a child. He grew up in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Schaefer at Belle Fourche, at- tended schools there and gradu, ated with the class of ,43. The following August he joined the army air force. It was while on a routine flight of an army bomber plane that he, and eight others, were killed near Miuroc, California, a week ago ~aturday. Col. W. A. MaX- well, the field's commanding of- ficer, stated that the plane crashed In a sleet and snow storm when returning to base from a com~bat training flight. Surviving are one sister, Mrs. Maxine Hardy, and one ~brother, Kenneth Raber, both of Belie Fourche. Leo L. Grass Is Killed In Action That Pet. Leo Lloyd Grass was killed in action recc~ntly his par- ents, Mr. and Mrs. John E. Grass who live in the Mona vicinity, were notified last Tuesday. Leo was only 20 and had been in service less than ten months, having been inducted March 27, 1944. He took training as a paratrooper at Fort Benning, Ga. this past summer after complet- ing his basic training. In Sept. he returned home on furlougk before shipping overseas. Born at ~ioux City, Iowa on November 8, 1924, the youth moved to Crook county a number of years ago with his parents who are now located on one of the Ripley places east of Mona. He was well k~own in that area as he and his parents used to play for dances around the neighbor- hood. He worked for a time at the Kenneth McGillivray ranch and for Charley Viergutz before entering service. Cub Pack May Be Formed Here At a meeting of parents and boys held Monday night at the church the desire was expressed to form a cub pack in the commun- ity for the ,boys too young to join the Scouts. Les Marquart, new field executive for the Black Hills council of the Boy Scouts, spoke on the metis of Cubbing and what must be done to form the organization. A meeting of parents and oth- ers i~terested will be called iu the near future.
