An lightly edited partial transcript of the Items of Interest column on page 10 of the 16 Aug 1917 Simcoe Reformer.

Sergt. Jim Donly [son of Hal B. Donly of the Reformer] writes that while on a recent leave in London, he saw 
the new Canadian war pictures shown at the Grafton Galleries.

A portion of the films showed a young soldier cutting another man's hair. Sergt. Donly thought he recognized the amateur barber and wrote to Corp. James Muth, a Port Ryerse boy, asking if it were he.

Corporal Muth, recently reported wounded, and now in England, replied that it was and that the boy whose hair he was cutting was Jim Morris, also of Port Ryerse.
