The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Indianapolis. 1941, 61p. including illus., first edition, slightly edgeworn dj. One of Cobb's dialect stories, himself as "Irvin," based on a reunion of black veterans of World War One. Jacket illustration shows a comically "proper" white soldier standing at attention with three black soldiers singing and whooping it up alongside. Cobb's story is set at a mass meeting in Paducah, KY, honoring a black WWI vet - and with Cobb as the only white speaker.
