Cecil Phipps a Lieutenant

From the October 24, 1918 Skidmore News, page 1:

Cecil Phipps a Lieutenant.

Friends of the Owen Phipps family, who now reside in Montana, will be pleased to hear that the son, Cecil, is making good in a military way.

He has recently received a lieutenant’s commission in the coast artillery and is now taking a six week’s course in the anti-air craft school at Fortress Monroe, Virginia.

The Phipps family were residents in the Lower Elkhorn vicinity before moving west several years ago.
