HISTORICAL MUSINGS

In 1919, It was estimated by the War Department that if would take five years for the women clerks and employees in the different offices to complete the task of compiling war records. "There are miles of records, and tons of data, to be tabulated, before the girls close their desks and go back to their homes in Michigan, Texas, and Iowa from whence they came in response to the Governments request for help" stated the war department.

I wonder if those records have been put into a federal computer today?

Also during this week in 1919, Dr. C.A. Newland announced the opening of his practice with this "Owing to my having received an honorable discharge from the military service, I am once more located in the old home town of Lipscomb where I will once more resume the duties of a practicing physician. Those who so desire, of, om old patrons, my services will find me located in the rear of the Lipscomb drug store ready and willing at all times to accommodate the people. Most cordially thanking you for the confidences of the past with a hope of a renewal of the same in the future. I am respectfully, Dr. C.A.Newland."
