The Western Union Telegram tells the somber news from the Secretary of War that Lt. Fowler is missing in action.  The Hamlin-Herald publishes first the news of MIA and then the much happier news about him being taken prisoner of war.  Especially note how the Editor writes "someday our boys will come home and they can tell us the inside story from their experiences."
