         Several papers had been started in West Allis before the advent
of the
 Star, which made its appearance December 14, 1916 under the leadership of
Mr.
 and Mrs. A. F. Sells. For a few years Erwin Feldschnetder was employed as
editor
 but Mrs. Sells gradually took over the editorial position and she is today
the
 editor and with her husband the sole owner.
