Names of Two Women Listed In Lancaster War II Casualties

Corrections Should Be Noted At Once For the Final Record

- President Truman i!D • victory address to the people, Sept. I, 1945

Every means available was used to prevent inaccuracies in the Heroes Edition and the copy was rechecked against official government easualty Iiste. However, if any names have been omitted,' or if any mistakes appear, relatives are asked to write the correction and mail it to the Heroes Edition Editor, Lancaster Newspapers, Box 899, Lancaster, Pa,

The rAnks of some of the men mentioned in this edition may have changed, or perhaps families have removed from addresses listed. These are samples of the changes that should be reported. It is also of great importance that the names af all casualties and the names of all men who were decorated for heroism be reported, Relatives of the men listed must be depended upon to make these reports. They are the final au thority and their cooperation is vitally needed in order that no Hero will be missed.

It is important that corrections which are to-be made be mailed promptly. The material contained in this Heroes Edition will later be published in book form.

At the same time, readers are asked to preserve this Heroes Edition as but few extra copies will be available due to the shortage of newsprint.
