Excerpt from Walton World War History Being

A farming community set high aloft among the hills and Cats kill Mountains, far removed from international commerce, Dela \\are Countv was in no wise thrilled by the initial fortunes of the contending parties in the War. Came then, however, the entrance of the United States into that struggle and the boys of Company F soberly gathered for service whatever it might be. Others, anxious for quick action, slipped off to camp, while older men, readjusting their business plans, considered how best to help their country in her need.

The first public war time meeting was held April lt, 1917, in the Walton town hall. Assembling enmasse in response to Gov cruor vvliitman's Farm Mobilization Proclamation, the farmers, gravely listening to prayers, addresses and singing, pledged to the cause their labor and the produce of acres, flocks and herds. A at the many later meetings of the citizens of town and village, the women of the community evinced a patriotic interest in the country's need. Thus, under the direction of the Secretary of the Home Bureau, Mrs. Arthur North, groups of school children representing the varied sections of the town, were marshalled upon the stage that evening by Mrs. Frank W. Dann, Mrs. Ives, Miss Margaret Kilpatrick and Miss Bessie Shackleton. In childish cho ruses the little ones sang of the live stock, grain and general produce with which the hills and vales of -'alton could and would supply the armies of Uncle Sam.
