James Cave

JAMES CAVE, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Emerson Cave, of this city, was born October 12th, 1898, on the farm just south of town, where he remained until a few years ago when the family moved to thiscity. He entered the local schools, from which he graduated with the class of the year 1916. Immediately after completing the course at this place he went to Iowa City and attended summer school. In the fall of that year he enrolled as a student of the University. When the years work was over he again attended summer school. When the government offered the opportunity to young men to enlist in the army or navy and also attend the University, having the credits which were necessary he enlisted and
returned to Iowa City the first of October of this year as a member of the S. A. T. C. His being mustered out of the service this month will not materially effect his school work as he expects to remain at the University City to complete his course. It was practically attending a military school, but nevertheless they were subject to the call for active service at any time. Although enthused with the training which they were receiving, most of the boys are glad that they are mustered out now that the war is over, so that they may devote more of their time to study.
