ACTIVITIES.

Company A drilled regularly once a week and in the fall of 1918 it drilled twice a week and took part in two contests at the county fairs. Four companies took part in these contests, Company A winning first place in one, and second place in the other.

The unit was ready to take part in a big Liberty loan meeting, but did not get to do so on account of the state ban during the influenza and all meetings were called off.

Company A had an auxiliary of ladies known as the "blue cross" which was drilled by the officers of the state guard. This society also assisted the Red Cross and gave the brancch at Sylvan Grove $157.
