JOSEPH RULEY, the son of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Ruley, reached his twenty-fourth birthday May 15th, 1918. His life has been spent on the farm with the parents, where he was busily engaged at the time of being called into the service in the draft of July 25th. He departed from this city the 24th of that month for Anamosa, where the contingent reported. They were immediately sent to Camp Gordon, Atlanta, Ga., to receive their training. This was accomplished in a very short time, being of six weeks duration. He was transferred to Camp Merritt, N. J., and then departed for overseas. The voyage was made without any mishap in nine days, the first stop being in England, where he remained for a short period.
