Crowds Gather To Honor Departed Hero


Funeral of Leonard Banks Held
at Farnam Sunday


The remains of Leonard Banks, a Farnam boy who fell on the battlefield in France in 1918, arrived in Farnam last Saturday. Funeral services were held at Bayley’s hall Sunday. The hall was inadequate to accomodate the crowds of people who gathered to honor our hero who died for his country.

The service was in charge of the local post of the American Legion. The boys all willingly performed their share in rendering the last honors to their departed comrade. Many ex–service men were present from a distance.
