Died, in Los Angeles, on New Year's Eve, 1921, Arno A. Kluge, at the age of 23 years. It is with deep regret that we chronicle the passing of so promising a young man at such an early age. Born at Ravenna, Neb., where he had his early schooling, finishing high school in 1916, when he removed to Lincoln in the same state for the purpose of attending the university. He had two years of that work, during which he also served as instructor in the Signal Corps of the U. S. for drafted men from Nov., 1917, to July, 1918. In Jan. of the latter year he had his first break-down, and came on to Los Angeles in Sept., disabled by paralysis. In March, 1919, after a stay of five weeks in the hospital, he came home in a helpless condition and was always thereafter confined to his chair when about the house.
Wanting to do something for himself, he engaged in the sale of radio apparatus, often assembling sets for his customers, and built up quite a trade. He also did typewriting and wrote articles for the magazines. He had a wireless telephone, and his concerts, under the call 6XN, which had become a regular thing, will be missed greatly by his many friends.
