GROVER HILL.
Grover Hill, assistant prohibition director of Tulare county, California, was born in that county on the 21st of December, 1895. His father, George Hill, is also a native of the county. Grover was educated in the Hanford grammar school, the State College in Fresno, and then took the agricultural course in the California Agricultural College at Davis, graduating in 1919.

Before completing his education Grover Hill enlisted in Company M, Second Infantry Regiment, California National Guard. When Villa, the Mexican revolutionist, made his raid into the United States in 1916 and the National Guard of several states was ordered to the border, the Second California was stationed in Nogales, Arizona. Shortly after the regiment was recalled to California, Mr. Hill left the National Guard, while holding the rank of senior noncommissioned officer, to enter the Officers Training School at the Presidio, San Francisco. On December 13, 1917, he was discharged for disability and was then sent by the government to the Agricultural College at Davis, as already stated. Through his connection with the National Guard and the training school he holds membership in the American Legion and the Disabled Veterans Association.

After being discharged from military service, Mr. Hill took up the life of a ranchman. He is the owner of two ranches in Fresno county, one of five thousand acres devoted to raising cattle, and the other to a vineyard. In 1922 he was appointed prohibition director for Tulare county, under Fred C. Scott, then district attorney, and since then he has taken an active part in the enforcement of the eighteenth amendment to the Federal Constitution and the Volstead Law. Mr Hill resigned on May 10, 1925, and is devoting himself to his ranch.
