Kenneth Hall

KENNETH HALL, another son of W. D. Hall, of this city, was born on the farm just south of town October 21st, 1899, where he has assisted with the farm work during the past few years and attended the local high
school, from which he graduated with the class last spring. Some time ago he wanted to enlist in some branch of the service, but as he knew that he could hardly be spared from the farm until after the crops were harvested he gave up this idea, but when the Government offered young men between the ages of 18 and 21, the opportunity of enlisting in the army or navy and at the same time attend the University, he was quick to respond and October 1st, of this year, found him enrolled at the Iowa University in the navy branch of the service. His enlistment has been of short duration as no doubt he will be mustered out this month, and possibly will return that he may assist with the farm work. The mother of these two boys passed away a few years ago, leaving three children besides the boys who are wearing the uniforms of their country.
