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.
