Seeking 1918 local newspaper supplements
When the Armistice ending World War I was signed on Nov. 11, 1918, The Sabetha Herald issued a special supplement that was mailed to subscribers. Perhaps The Fairview Enterprise or other area newspapers also printed such a supplement.
Apparently, the Herald staff did not keep a copy of this supplement for the bound book that contained the year’s issues, nor does it appear to be available on the website that can be accessed through the Mary Cotton Public Library archives.
A copy of a supplement from either newspaper, or any other area newspapers, would be very helpful as a reference document for a special Veterans Day (previously Armistice Day) story in this year’s Nov. 7 issue of The Sabetha Herald, to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the end of “The Great War.”
If anybody has a copy of any of these supplements and is willing to allow the Herald staff to use it temporarily, please contact Patty Locher at email@example.com as soon as possible; call the Herald at 284-3300; mail the supplement to The Sabetha Herald, P.O. Box 208, Sabetha, KS 66534; or bring the supplement to the Herald office. It will be handled with care, and returned to the owner.
