SPRINGFIELD, (Special) — Lieutenant Nester Cole of the U. S. Army air corps was a visitor on the Southern Normal campus this past weekend and on Thursday addressed students and faculty at their regular convocation, describing in detail the steps through which a young man must go to win his wings in the air corps.  He told especially of the training on the primary and advanced levels at Randolph field in Texas.


[Nester Cole is the fourth son of John A. Cole and Mary Benesh – he of Irish descent and she of Bohemian descent.  They married in 1909.] 1

I purchased roughly 25 original issues of the Yankton (South Dakota) Press & Dakotan, dating from 1938 to 1946. I am systematically going through every issue and will be posting the articles that include the names of individuals. I am happy to email full-size scans of any article. Feel free to ask.
