Since it is a little difficult to read  I have typed the information below the pages.

IN SACRED MEMORY OF

Columbus Reed Morris

Wilbur Frank Watts

Who gave their lives that the world might be made safe for democracy and that eternal justice might be done.

Because of their devotion to duty, their loyalty to the cause of liberty and righteousness and their glorious sacrifice,  these noble boys will ever be held in grateful and reverential memory.

The example of our heroes will be an inspiration to us through all time, and it shall be our purpose to hold high the torch which they have thrown to us.  We here and now should pledge our lives to loving and useful service to humanity.
