Patriotic Parade

On Wednesday afternoon the colored people of the town had a patriotic parade. The horses, cars, and wheels were decorated with the National colors and the Red Cross members and the junior Red Cross members wearing white and the Red Cross caps made a very stirring scene.

Rob Johnson, who was wounded in France and who came home last week, took part in the Canteen tableau.

Patriotic songs were sung and the War Campaign Banners carried. It was a well gotten up parade and speaks well for the colored population of the town.
