Killed In Action.

We regret to hear that Mrs S. M. Buick of American River has been informed by the Military Authorities that her husband has been killed in Action in New Guinea. Prior to enlisting he was engaged in farming at the River. He was for several years an active member of the Dudley Rifle Club. Mrs Buick is a daughter of Mrs M. Sundberg of Kingscote, and there is a family of five children. We extend our deepest sympathy to Mrs Buick and family.
