Message Detail:
SIGNAL MEN ENTERTAIN.

Establish Headquarters at the Ellis Street Armory.

Lieutenant George C. Round, who is one of the veterans of the G.A.R. and who belonged to the Signal Corps during the Civil War, is stopping with his wife at 805 Ellis street, where all Signal Corps members may be sure of a pleasant greeting during the entire week.

With the view of renewing old associations, head-quarters have been opened at the armory of Artillery Battalion, N.G.C., 815 Ellis street, where an open house will be the programme during this entire day, commencing at 10 o'clock. A banquet will conclude to-day's festivities.

Lieutenant Round hails from Manassas, Va., and is president of the Veteran Signal Corps Association. The other officers of the association are:

Vice president, Captain Seymour Pierce, Honeoye Falls, N.Y.; Edwin T. Colwell, Boston Mass.; Major Ernst A. Denicke, San Francisco, Cal.; secretary and treasurer Charles D'W. Marcy, 155 Franklin street, Boston, Mass,; assistant secretary and treasurer, James H. Kelly, 101 Eagle street, Albany, N.Y.; historian, J. Willard Brown. Emerson School, East Boston; chaplain, Sergeant Cyrus S. Bolton, Cameron, Mo.

Ed note: Our esteemed U.S. Veteran Signal Corps Association cronies were inclined to share their head-quarters with many others, including about seventy-five veterans of the Spanish American War - also meeting at 815 Ellis Street. The Span-Am vets were present to serve as escorts for the thirty-seventh National Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic being held in San Francisco.
