THE COLUMBIAN 1918

KILLED IN ACTION
As we go to press advices from Washington announce that private Ezra L. Langston, a son of D. N. Langston of Oakvale, and a cousin of our mayor, J. Q. Langston, has been killed in action on the Western front in France.
This brave young lad enlisted in troop G., April 16th , 1917 or just a few days after America entered the war. He was in training with the local troop when it was mobilized here for several weeks and made many friends among our people. We regret that on account of having closed our forms preparatory to going to press that we are unable to give a more extended account of the sacrifice made by this young soldier at this time and in next weeks issue, we will have more to say.
