“The news came to The Register from the Associated Press at 2:15 a.m., the factories were notified and the whistles started. For nearly an hour the great steam voices screamed and whooped and yodeled and chortled and made all the joyful noises it was in their brazen throats to make. Almost by magic the streets were filled with cheering crowds. The demonstration will be brought to a close in a burst of glory tonight with music and bonfires and speeches.” — The Register, Nov. 11, 1918

 

Humboldt’s Frank Schomaker will drive his restored Army jeep in Iola’s Veterans Day Parade today, and in a vets parade Sunday afternoon in Humboldt.
