=et VOLUME-XIX VETERANS AND DAUGHTCRS BBEVMD, NORTH CAROLINA, FRIDAY. AUGUST 28. 1914. np. W hile Comrade Morgan, moved by the magnificent th o ught of doing honor to the w orthy wherever found, covered himself with glory in doing his whole duty by this tender, we, who are in closer relationship and tenderer ties, m nsi borrow of his enthusi­ asm and far exceed his donation before we can approach his lim it of duty done. The initial step tow ard making the project a success was ^t^ken by appointing Comrade J . A. Miller, empowered to associate w ith him ­ self other business men who are disposed to make the project a suc­ cess, a committee which is in­ structed to form ulate a plan, esti­ mate the cost, solicit funds and re­ port progress at will to these head­ quarters. I t is hoped, it is assured th a t by united effort on the p art of veterauo, the town and country people, we can build something commen­ surate w ith the respect due our mothers, sisters and many of our wives, th a t will do credit to con­ tributors and be an ornam ent to the town.
