Canadians. His education was obtained

not appeal to him as strongly as did
the call from the business world
where he longed for the struggle
and the chance to rise. He became l ll
a sign-writer, out-door advertiser
and interior decorator and through a
his success in this line has built c l I
up a business that is a source of 1e Al
both credit and profit to him. He is , . ..
proprietor of the J. J. Langever Service,
out-door advertisers and signwriters,
and is noted for original and
artistic designs. He is a member of
the Master Painters' Association of
the United States, and the Out-Door
Advertising Painters' Association of
the United States. In the Knights of
Pythias Uniform Rank he has attained
distinction, and has been the
recipient of several honors. He was
captain for six years and for four
years was colonel of the Second
Regiment. Mr. Langever's hobby is
flying machines, where his inventive
genius is given full play. He is a
member of the Southwestern Aeronautical
Association of America and
is chairman of the committee on
