ACTIVITIES.
At Paola, May 30, 1918, Company C participated in Memorial services with the Grand Army of the Republic.

On July 4, 1918, it was reviewed by Governor Capper and Adjutant General Charles S. Huffman at Olathe. Three battalions were present. Company C won first honors in the exhibition drill. The organization was well entertained with a fine dinner by the ladies of Olathe.

The organization went to LaCygne county fair on August 29, 1918, and in competition with several other state guard companies, won first prize - a large United States flag. We were splendidly entertained for dinner and supper by the Red Cross ladies of La Cygne.

The unit attended the Franklin county fair at Ottawa on September 18, 1918, and in comPetition with five state guard companies, it won first honors - a cash prize of $200.

On November 11, 1918, in Paola, the company had charge of celebrating the signing of the Armistice, and at night it went to Spring Hill and participated in the celebration at that place - a big time. The Kaiser was hanged and burned in effigy.

The company was never defeated in any competition and was always ready for a contest.

On July 28 the company was called to protect the county jail against a threatened mob. Members responded well, but no mob appeared. The unit was called out again to run down train robbers. It was a fruitless chase, as the call came too late and the robbers escaped to Kansas City.

A full company was maintained from date of organization to muster-out. It was equipped with uniform, shoes, shirts, and forty old Springfield rifles. We had a fine armory, and entertainments were given to pay expenses. All debts were paid; $300 in treasury. Members have been loyal.
