     SGT. STANLEY WAGGONER KILLED IN PHILIPPINES Mr. and Mrs. L. E. Waggoner recently received word announcing the death of their son, Sgt. Stanley V. Waggoner, which occurred on the Island of Minidnao in the Philippines, June 11. He was 25 years of age, and was married. His latest letter, written June 3, reported that he was resting after 40 days of combat service without a rest, and his wife had not expected that he would be returned to combat so soon. He received basic training at Camp Swift, Texas, and later training at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., at San Luis, Obiseo, Calif., before leaving for overseas service. He was originally in the 97th division, which was sent to Europe but was transferred to a Pacific-bound division before the 97th left. He had been awarded the good Conduct medal and the Combat Infantryman's medal. The survivors include the wife and son, his parents and three sisters, Mrs. Joyce Meese, living with her parents in this city, Mrs. Elden Engle of St. Joe and Jane at home. Two brothers-in-laws are in the service. One is Mrs. Waggoner's brother, Pfc, Allen Schriner in the Army and now in Germany and the other, Raymond Meese, is in the navy.
