MEMORIES AND FISH BRING SPARKLE AGAIN TO is a scene at last night's once-a-year meeting of "The Last Man's Club." Standing left to right are Fred Rhync, Lclarul Alexander, and Ed Colfcy. Seated, from left, are Mrs. Paul Miller of Gaslonia, state president of (he local auxiliary of Veterans of World War One; Dr. A. A. Ilch, and Hoke Hanna, (Photo by Wayne Lawing.) Wit, Fellowship Of Doughboy Regained In Club By DEL LAZENBY The wit and fellowship of the 1918 doughboy prevailed again for two hours Thursday evening when "The Last Man's Club" held its annual Veterans Day assembly at Fred Stowe's Fish on New Hope Rd. "The Last Man's Club" was organized near the end of World War I to continue and promote he comradeship begun in the Tenches of France during the 'irst great international" holo- caust. But, the ranks of The Last ilan's Club dwindle with each )assing year. Three members who had laughed and sung wilh heir buddies at the 1964 Vet- erans Day get-together have passed on in the intervening 12 months. However, some 35 were pre- sent, led by the club's ramrod, Hoke Hanna Sr., to recite their World War One experience for eager ear s, and to consume great quantities of seafood and chicken. "It was a far-cry from the hard-tack we tried to chew for nourishment in 1918 a member said alter Thursday night's meeting. Before adjournment, those at- tending hopefully voted to meet on Veterans Day 1966 at the same place and time. The idea is that the annual sessions will continue until only one man is left of all the names originally on the roster. It was an evening for memories for the oldtimers, all of whom are now in their 70's. The group is a loosely-organiz- ed "club" of Gaston County men who rallied to the Flag dur- ing Germany's first bid for world dominance in the second decade of this century. Though there are presently only about 50 ex'-servicemcn on the roll, all veterans of World War I are eligible to affiliate with their World War One buddies for the annual session of reminiscences. The three veterans who died during the past year were Dr. Philip Malone of Cramerton Barber L. C. Watts of Bessemer City, and Clarence Cashion of East Gastonia.
