Clark County Doctor Answers Country’s Call
Clark county has not only responded liberally to the call made upon it for soldiers in the ranks but it also is contributing to the forces required in professional lines. The following from the Owen Enterprise will be of interest to Clark county readers:
Monday noon Dr. S. M. Kyes leaves for Fort Riley, Kansas, where he begins training for service in the medical department of Uncle Sam’s army. The doctor offered his services to the government several months ago and early last fall received a message informing him to be ready to leave for training on short notice. The first of this week brought the orders to leave here Monday and go to Fort Riley, where he would be given the necessary training to fit him for service in foreign lands.
The doctor is one of the prominent professional men of the city and his leaving will make a vacancy which will be hard to fill. He is giving up a good practice and breaking home ties in order to help give the winning punch to "Fritz."
