Lieut. Stephen Beach experience in service

 I have been requested to tell a little of my experience while in the service.
 In the late part of December 1917, I was ordered to camp at Fort Omaha, Neb.   There I completed a course of instruction in the Balloon Ground School and started taking balloon flights.   After flying for about two weeks I and a few other cadets were chosen to attend aeroplane ground school, and were sent to the U. S. School of Military Aeronautics at the Ohio State University, Columbus. O. (Clipping ends here.)

Stephen Beach
 He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Beach and one of the boys who have answered the call to colors.  He will probably be one of those who will be coming home soon.
