Dorsey Skinner

DORSEY SKINNER, the son of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Skinner, was born on the farm near this city, February 16th, 1900. In this community he grew to manhood, and after finishing the rural school entered the schools in this city from which he graduated with the class this year. He desired very much to enter the service of his country, and under the new registration of this year, enrolled his name with the new registrants between the ages of eighteen and twenty-one. Shortly after enrolling his name subject to call for service, the announcement that boys of this age would be permitted to enlist and at the same time enter some university or college. He immediately enlisted in the S. A. T. C., and
entered Coe College at Cedar Rapids. The signing of the armistice resulted in all of these young men being mustered out of the service, he having received his honorable discharge the 11th of this month. He came home immediately, but undoubtedly will return to Cedar Rapids, to resume his studies at the college for the ensuing year. Although the mother has been very proud to know that her only child had offered his services to his country, it is pleasing news to her that he has been given his discharge.
