There will be day and night service.
Accoring to the notice John Behm planed to move from Vienna, Missouri to Edwardsville in the near future.21 Francis Behm and Elizabeth Caroline Coffey were divorced between 1922 and 1930.22,16
An article in the Edwardsville newspaper on September 1, 1922 stated that the Behm Service truck was used to pull in a Dodge truck which was thrown in the ditch when a high speed touring car struck it. The driver of the pleasure car speeded up and drove away without ascertaining the amount of damage or nature of the injuries. The truck was very badly damaged.
