TWO C.H.S. BOYS OF WHOM THIS OLD TOWN IS VERY JUSTLY PROUD
[Photo of Victor Jones and Worrell Jones in uniform]
We present herewith portraits of Worrell and Victor Jones, the husky young sons of Mr. and Mrs. Stewart Jones, of Eighth and Daisy streets East End.
The Jones boys were students at the Clearfield High school when Congress declared a state of war to exist between the United States and Germany. They were among the very first enthusiastic American boys to volunteer their services and enlisted in the regular army in April, 1917.
Worrell Jones was 19 years of age and Victor 17 when they enlisted but that was to be expected from these lads. Their great grandfather on their paternal side served his country in the Mexican war, while both Grandfather Jones and Grandfather Tippery fought for liberty from ‘61 to ’65, the former being wounded by a rebel bullet through the leg at Chancellorsville.
As was told in a recent letter published in The Progress Sergeant Worrell Jones was wounded five different times in the hot fighting in the Rheims-Soissons salient about July 15th and is now confined to a base hospital in France anxiously awaiting the day he will be able to get back in the line for another crack at the boche. Victor Jones has thus far escaped injury although he was in the thick of the fighting with his brother, they both being members of Co. E 38th Regular U.S. Infantry.
Mr. Jones, who is a foreman at the Clearfield Sewer Pipe works, is justly proud of his two stalwart sons and who wouldn’t be proud of a pair of American boys like that.
