St. Williams

About 10 o'clock Tuesday word came to the village that Major Frank Mason would arrive on the noon train. That did not leave much time for preparations, but everyone did what they could.

The school was dismissed, business laid aside, and every motor car within reach was requisitioned.

All Norfolk knows that Major Mason was one of our  boys who made particularly good over in the war area, and St. Williams people are proud of him. Moreover, we are all glad to have him back again here safe and sound.

With flags and cheers and handshakes and much blowing of horns, we demonstrated that to him when his train brought him.
