Headline Of Long Ago: As a feature of National Newspaper Week, October 9-15, The News is presenting some of its old front pages carrying news stories which made history. The May 7, 1915, edition above recalls the "Lusitania Incident" of World War I. Although the United States did not enter the war until two years later, the loss of 114 American lives in the sinking of the Lusitania by a German submarine inflamed public opinion on the side of the Allies. As noted by the headline, first reports were the no lives were lost. Other headlines show that war news had "taken over" the front pages, although it is reassuring to note that as early as half a century ago the "location of Ann Arbor" was established.

A Meeting Of Veterans Arthur Starr of Ypsilanti, left, a World War I veteran, was in the crowd which Monday afternoon greeted Marine Capt. James Warner, Washtenaw County's first freed prisoner of war to return from the Vietnam War. Starr, an active American Legion member who belongs to a "40 and 8" unit, fought in a war almost 50 years before Capt. Warner was shot down and captured. The captain was a guest of honor at a reception at the National Guard Armory on S. Huron St. in Ypsilanti Monday after being taken on a tour of the city. The former POW talked briefly with students at Ypsilanti High School and Eastern Michigan University, both of which he attended.
