AVENER HOLT KILLED IN ACTION.

PVT. Avener W. Holt, 19, son of Mr. Joe Holt of the Corn House Creek Community, has been killed in battle, his parents were advised in a War Department message received last Friday. The young soldier lost his life in the invasion of Negros Island in the Philippines on April 17th. He was one of the county's most promising and highly regarded young men and the news of his death has brought, deep sorrow to a wide circle of friends. A graduate of St. George High School in the class of 1943 he enlisted in a paratroop unit of the Infantry in February 1944. In the rigid paratroop examination he stood 7th in a group of more than 700 men. He received his training at Fort Benning and had been overseas but two months when he lost his life in the service of his country.
