Hiram Ornn Wiper, Enderlin, North Dakota, graduated from his home high school in June, 1918, and entered the University of North Dakota, a few months later, a member of the Students' Army Training Corps. Superintendent Sweetland, of the city schools, says of him: "Eager to enroll and get into the service thru the training corps; strongly of the belief that America was in the right." But his eagerness availed him naught. Tho strong and rugged, he was not able to cope with both influenza and pneumonia and fell a victim on October 25. The photograph taken of him in an enlargement of a Kodak picture of the young man as one of the basketball group, the only picture the parents had. Hiram had been impatiently awaiting the coming of his uniform that he might have an "appropriate" picture taken to send home. But the khaki did not come in time.
