Getts, Clark (Court-martialed – 26 Sep 1918)

Clark Getts, former Whitehall boy, has been sentenced to 25 years in the federal prison at Leavenworth. Getts was court-martialed for disobedience and spreading propaganda at Camp Grant.

Getts was one of the brightest young men of Trempealeau County and made a record at the University of Wisconsin. There, also, he gathered a lot of ideas wholly out of touch with present ideas of Americanism, and these brought him disgrace in the army camp. – Galesville Republican
