Mrs. Orla Morton of Wichita was elated on Monday when she received word that her husband, Pfc. Orla H. Morton, who had been reported by the War Department as missing in action, had been slightly wounded and was in an Allied hospital. An error, it was stated, had been made in the first message. It was thought by relatives that Orla had become a German prisoner. Mrs. Morton lost no time in relaying to Coldwater and Protection the good news of her husband being located and in American hands.
