S. Army," said Tennis S. Hatfield, Jr., when he enlisted last week at Charleston, WV. This 19-year-old grandson of the late "Devil Anse" Hatfield, leader of West Virginia's famous feuding clan of "way back there in the days of long barr'led rifles and careless killings" is now a soldier enroute to service in Panama. Young Hatfield stated that he is not interested in the old feud between members of his family and the McCoys. "I just want to do my part now that this country needs men to build its national defense. The army is great and I recommend it to any boy who is looking for a good job at good pay," he said. Pictured above are Private Hatfield and his father, T S.
