The freedoms we enjoy today have been won and pre- served by the sacrifices of our veterans. One veteran I would like to acknowledge this Veterans Day was a young man from Chester, who made the ulti- mate sacrifice while serving his country. Harry Doble lost his life in a battle in northern Italy on July 8, 1944, and is buried in the American cemetery there. Chester American Le- gion Post 664 has honored Harry Doble by naming the post after him. Although Veterans Day is Nov. 11, veterans' organiza- tions from Susanville will host a Veterans Day Parade this Saturday, Nov. 10, begin- ning at 11 a.m. The parade begins at the Lassen Union High School parking lot, and will end at the Lassen County Fair- grounds. Ceremonies honor- ing all veterans will take place following the parade. Free hamburgers, hotdogs, their wives from Chester will and drinks will be provided; be assisting with the cook- however, donations will be ing, so stop by and say hello accepted, to them after the parade.

Our featured artifact is metal, it is approximately 10" tall by 7" in diameter. It has a hole or eye at one end and appears to be hand-forged. What is it, what was it used for? The answer will be in next i week's paper. If you think i J you know what it is, call the museum st 283-6320. Last week's answer: It is a "Sailor" style rigid straw hat. Men wore this fashionable hat during the 1910s and 1920 Sears advertised them as "a popular style with wearability."
