_Chicago Daily Tribune_, 1 Sep. 1918: p. 9:

<<[title] Elgin Police Arrest 11 Camp Grant "Awol." Men / Acting in
accordance with a request made by the Belvidere police officials, nine
Negro and two white soldiers who last night left Camp Grant without passes
were apprehended at Elgin yesterday morning by the local authorities. ....>>
