Harry Berner

HARRY BERNER, who graduated from the local high school last spring, was anxious to enter the service of his country, and when the government offered to young men, between the ages of 18 and 21, the opportunity to get in the service and at the same time to attend the University, he was quick to respond. He went to Iowa City, where he became a member of the S. A. T. C. These boys, although permitted to attend the University and at the same time draw a private’s salary, were subject to call for service at any time, but the signing of the armistice put an end to this possibility and they have been given their honorable discharges. Like other
of the boys from this city he no doubt will finish the year at the University. Harry, who has always made his home in this city, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Berner, and was born in Oxford Junction, September 1st, 1900. He had just reached his eighteenth birthday when it was necessary for him to register. He regrets that his career in the army was of such short duration, but had he waited until called in the draft he would not have had an opportunity of getting into the service.
