Hauber of: New Haven, is back from the Pa- cific with a record of 37 months spent in the South Pacific, New Guinea and the Philippines. Ar- thur arrived in the states two weeks ago and arrived home last Friday evening via Moorcroft. He states that Cecil Crago of Beulah and Jesse Janes of ~un- dance, who also share his record, will probably be ,home within the next week or two as they were i supposed to leave for home about the middle of Septem,ber. All were se~t overseas at the same time and have been in the same regiment but in different compa- nies. Arthur was with the 161st In- fantry of the 25th Division which received a citation from General MacArthur in January. He was wounded in April suffering shrap- nel wounds in ,his hack.

He was inducted- March 25, 1942 and was sent overseas, first to Hawaii, when six months training was completdd. .X PICTURE IS PLACED IN COUNTY LIBRARY That the long and faithful ser- vice of Mrs. Elizabeth T. Brandt in the Crook County Library will now be forever recalled, a posed picture of her was placed on the libt~ary walls this week. The like- ness, a framed and tinted picture about 12" x 14" was purchased through funds donated by schools and individuals of Crook .county last spring. A gift of Black Hills gold was made to Mrs. Bra,ndt with part of the funds and the remainder w-as used for the memorial. Mrs. Brandt served as Hbrar- inn from April 13, 1936 until July 1, 1945, during which time the collection has grown to around 10,000 volumes of fiction, refer- ence, non-fiction, travel and bi- ography, which includes a large assortment for adults and c~ild- ren. Crook cou~aty may be justly proud of such a library and it was due in large part to Mrs. Brandt's great interest that such progre~ was made possible.
