WEST VIRGINIA IN THE WAR

FOUR MINUTE MEN CAMPAIGN

It was the ambition of the Four Minute Men to reach the entire population of the State in the Fourth Liberty Loan drive, but were prevented by the ban placed upon public meetings owing to the influenza epidemic.

When a speaker served faithfully through three campaigns he was given a registration card and insignia of his position in the form of a “4MM4” button.

The work of the organization as such has been ordered terminated on December 24, 1918, with a four minute tribute to the Allies. Although honorably discharged and officially “mustered out”, there is no doubt but that the Four Minute Men are much more loyal and patriotic citizens, and better informed men and women by reason of this service and will be just as devoted to civic duties in the future as they were to their more intensive task in helping to win the great world war.

The list of Four Minute Men, including women, so far as reported at State Headquarters, is as follows:…
