P.L .O’Toole, assistant adjutant, has made public this announcement: "National Guard members who served on the American border in 1916, are entitled to draw, as additional pay, 50 cents per day for each day of service". Information application should be submitted to the adjutant general Minnesota, State Capital, St Paul. Certified copy of discharge should be attached. "Approximately 18,000 National Guard members who are entitled to this additional pay have so far failed to apply for it", said Mr. O’Toole.
