Carl KENNEY, 22, well known young man of this city who is an employee of the Indiana State Highway Department was found dead from a bullet wound in a car parked at the south side of Walton Saturday. Coroner M. B. STEWART of Logansport, was called and after an investigation said that indications pointed to suicide.
Mr. Kenney's family disputes the suicide theory stating that there was no motive for him to end his life. The family believes that he was killed accidentally while examining a .22 calibre revolver. Coroner Stewart will hold his inquest Tuesday morning at Logansport. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl KENNEY, 336 Grove Street, Logansport.
The wound that caused death was inflicted in the right temple by a slug from a .22 calibre target pistol. The gun was beside the body which was slumped down in the rear seat of the car when it was discovered by fellow workmen whom Kenney had left only a few minutes prior to the fatal shooting.
When the tragedy was discovered the fellow workers of Kenney thought that the young man might yet be alive and drove the car to the office of Dr. E. P. FLANAGAN in Walton who said after a cursory examination that death had taken place. Dr. M. B. Stewart declared after a more thorough examination of the body that the bullet most certainly produced instant death.
Members of the crew with which Kenney worked said that they recalled having heard a sound like the report from a gun at 11:45 o'clock Saturday morning but that they suspected nothing and consequently made no investigation. The automobile was parked about a city block from where the crew was engaged in making a survey for the proposed new paved highway linking Kokomo and Logansport.
Working in the crew with Kenney were T. A. EHRSAM, chief; Arnold LYBROOK, William NOBES, Al HARTMAN, Charles EWING and Thos. DEVANNEY.
Kenney had been employed by the state highway department since July of 1933 and had been engaged on the last November 1.
Those who were working with Kenney said that the young man appeared to be in his usual spirits before the shooting. No note was found either in the car or in Kenney's clothing to substantiate the suicide theory.
Mr. Kenney has been a resident of this city for the past two years or since his marriage to Miss Annabelle MILLER of this city. He was a graduate of the Logansport High School. Last July he made an unsuccessful attempt to save the life of a fellow highway worker who drowned in Sylvan Lake near Kendallville.
Surviving besides the wife and daughter Carlanne [KENNEY] and parents of Logansport are a sister, Mrs. Ruth MARSHALL and brother Dick KENNEY. They both live at 336 Grove street, Logansport.

Joshua COFFING, 85, better known to a host of friends throughout northern Indiana as "Uncle Joff" [COFFING], passed away at 10:35 Saturday morning at Woodlawn hospital. Mr. Coffing, who for scores of years resided on Piety Hill at Macy became afflicted with a bowel obstruction a few days ago and was brought to the hospital on Thursday where in the afternoon he underwent an emergency operation. However, attending physicians early despaired for his life due to his advanced years and "Uncle Joff" gradually grew weaker until the end.
Perhaps no other person in Indiana had endeared himself in the hearts of both youngsters and grownups alike as did Mr. Coffing, who in latter years of his life was a living image of Santa Claus. Mr. Coffing during the yuletide season always found great delight in playing the rold of Santa Claus for the kiddies in and around his own neighborhood and many adjacent cities as well. His characterization of Santa both in actions and appearance required but a minimum of make-up and no change in personality.
Mr. Coffing, throughout his long residency in Macy became known as a philosopher of no little note in the up-state territory and hundreds of his friends often sought "Uncle Joff's" advice relative to historical data and various civic and social problems. He was a pioneer in every sense of the word. Coming to Indiana when still but a lad he endured the hardships and vicissitudes of the early pioneer life and saw the gradual advancement from the covered wagon mode of travel up to the automobile and airplanes. In all this procession of events Mr. Coffing maintained a keen interest and was a delightful conversationalist on current as well as historical affairs.
Joshua, son of Thomas Davis and Sophia COFFING, was born on a farm in Delaware County, Ohio on November 9th, 1849. Mr. Coffing had been a resident of Macy since he was a youth of 17 years. Upon reaching manhood he was united in wedlock to Anna BURKETT and to this union four children were born. Mrs. Coffing passed away while still a young woman. A few years later Mr. Coffing was married to Mrs. Al LICHTY, a native of Ohio and five children were born to them. Mr. Lichty was the mother of three children by a previous marriage. Until ill health forced his retirement "Uncle Joff" followed the occupation of farming and stock raising and in the latter branch of vocation he became known as one of the best cattlemen in Indiana, his stock often capturing high awards in various exhibits made throughout the state. He was a member of the Macy Christian church, the Masonic Order and the Grange lodge.
The following children survive: Arthur COFFING, of Garrett, Ind.; Emma [COFFING], Jane [COFFING] and Effie COFFING, all of South Bend; Mrs. Elizabeth WELLER, of Marion, Ind.; Mrs. Ida LICHTY, Mrs. E. M. SHAFER, Ralph COFFING, of Macy; Russell COFFING, of Twelve Mile, and Grace SHADLE, of Macy. Two sisters, Mrs. Josephus SANDERS, of Macy and Mrs. Levi HORTON, of Wagoners Station, also survive.

"UNCLE JOFF" COFFING
[an editorial]

Although the jovial and pleasing personality of "Uncle Joff" COFFING must forever more be denied his legion of friends in this section of the state, his deeds, his robust and homespun type of Hoosier citizenship will be imbedded forever in the memory of grown-ups and youngsters alike. "Uncle Joff" with his keen philosophies of human nature and his fondness for little children had made himself an ambassador of good will and good cheer for all of those with whom he came in contact.
In the role of Santa Claus, which he so ably impersonated during the Christmas season, Mr. Coffing's kindly mannerism made one wonder if they were not face to face with the real St. Nick and that the mythology of childhood dreams had not been transformed into a reality. However, "Uncle Joff's' long and interesting career was not all so tranquil and serene as were the closing chapters of his life.
When but a lad of tender years, he in company with his parents came to Indiana by way of the covered wagon route, established their residence in a roughly hewed log cabin, and began the long and hard battle of establishing a productive piece of farmland. In this environment of the early Hoosier pioneering, the Macy philosopher brushed elbows with hardships and fortunes alike, which melded into his soul a characterization of sound Americanism and humanitarianism that none of the present generation, perhaps will ever experience.
In worldly weal greater successes have been accredited to many, but only to a few have come that sympathetic understanding of their fellow man, which was the greatest asset of "Uncle Joff" Coffing's, the Sage of Piety Hill.

Winamac, Ind., Feb. 13. -- Crash of two cars at the intersection of state roads No. 29 and 14 here Tuesday afternoon proved fatal to Joseph Fred CRAMER, 58, farmer residing three miles east of Winamac. The Pulaski county man succumbed to a double skull fracture shortly after 5 o'clock, more than two hours following the accident. He never regained consciousness.
John Cramer, 22, a son, and Adam THOMPSON, a neighbor of Cramer, escaped with minor injuries.
A small pig which Cramer was taking to his home in his car was killed by the impact.
The farmer and his two sons, John and James, had attended the community sale here where they had purchased the pig and a horse. The son, James had left for home on the horse previously.
As the father was traveling south on Road No. 29 he attempted to make a left turn into highway No. 14 to go to his home. When the Cramer machine reached the middle of the traffic line of north bound machines on state road No. 29 it was struck by the Thompson car, traveling north.
The impact turned the Cramer machine over, throwing the occupants out. It is believed the skull fracture was sustained when the man's head hit the pavement.
The Kennedy ambulance was summoned and when it was found that the private hospital of Dr. T. E. CARNEAL was filled the severely injured farmer was taken to the Kennedy funeral parlors where he was attended by physicians. John Cramer and Mr. Thompson also received treatment.

A mother and her son were killed instantly and a daughter died later in Woodlawn Hospital here and the father was slightly injured when an auto in which the family were riding was rammed by an eastbound Chicago and Erie railroad passenger train at a crossing two and half miles southeast of Akron shortly before 9 o'clock Wednesday evening.
The dead are:
Mrs. Emma [SCHROEDER] HOFFMAN, 40 years old.
DeVon HOFFMAN, aged 10.
Willodean HOFFMAN, aged 12
The injured are:
Ralph HOFFMAN, aged 40, minor cuts and bruises.
The dead and injured are members of the Ralph HOFFMAN family who lived on a farm two and half miles southeast of Akron. The Erie railroad bisects the Hoffman farm which lies 600 feet from the main road and the home is reached by a lane. The lane from the home leads to a bridge over the westbound Erie track and onto the east bound track which is on the level of the roadway. The Hoffman home is 150 feet from the overhead bridge.
The Hoffman family at the time of the accident were on their way to Akron with cream to be delivered to a creamery there. The family also planned to get a son DuWayne [HOFFMAN], aged 15, who had been attending a Brethren Sunday School party at the home of a friend.
Mr. Hoffman drove his car directly into the path of the Erie passenger train. The train was the crack New York Flyer No. 2 which is due here at 8:20 p.m. and which was running on time. Mrs. Hoffman was riding in the front seat of a Model A Ford sedan with her husband while DeVon and Willodean were in the back seat.
Mrs. Hoffman's body was found 150 feet east of the crossing while the body of her son was closeby. These bodies were on the south side of the track. The body of Willodean was found 200 feet east of the crossing. It had rolled down a 35 foot embankment and was lying on the West bound track right of way.
Mr. Hoffman saved his life by jumping from his car. He ran to his home where he called his neighbors Harley BUCHER, C. B. HERENDEEN and Charles ILER. These men with other neighbors gathered the dead and injured. Mrs. Hoffman and her son were taken to an undertaking parlor at Akron.
Miss Willodean Hoffman was taken to a doctor's office in Akron where after an examination it was deemed necessary to bring her to the Woodlawn Hospital. The girl had suffered a fractured skull and internal injuries. She was brought to the hospital at 10 o'clock and died at 1:10 a.m. today without regaining consciousness. Mrs. Hoffman died from a fractured skull as did both of the children.
The Erie train was in charge of Conductor Newt ROBY, Marion, Ohio, the oldest conductor on the Erie and at one time a resident of this city, and Engineer William O'LAUGHLIN of Huntington. The train was stopped at the Anthony Cross crossing one-half mile east of the private crossing at the Hoffman farm. The debris of the Hoffman car was still on the pilot of the engine.
The train crew backed to the Hoffman crossing where they rendered all aid that they could to the stricken family. The train did not leave until nearly an hour after the accident had occurred. Erie officials from Huntington came to the scene of the tragedy immediately.
Sheriff Boyd PETERSON and Coroner Dean STINSON were called to the scene of the accident. In the presence of Sheriff Peterson and a neighbor Hoffman said, "I don't know how I got out. I did not hear the train whistle or I did not see the train until I was ready to jump." Hoffman should have been familiar with the movements of the Erie passenger trains.
Hoffman was a fireman on the Erie for 14 years retiring two years ago to go onto the farm after his father Charles HOFFMAN died. He was in charge of the local engine which turned here. The accident is is believed was caused by a fog which blanketed the territory or to vapor which had collected on the glass of the car which thus obstructed Hoffman's vision. The view of the Hoffman crossing however is unobstructed.
Mr. Hoffman was born and reared on the farm where the tragedy occurred which claimed the lives of three members of his family. He had lived in Huntington until two years ago. DeVon and Willodean were born while the Hoffman family resided in Huntington.
Willodean was born on July 28, 1922 and DeVon on November 2, 1924. Mrs. Hoffman was born in Michigan on March 1, 1896 and came to Akron 17 years ago. Her maiden name was SCHROEDER. The Hoffman family are members of the United Brethren Church at Akron. The funeral arrangements have not been completed.
Coroner Dean STINSON plans to hold his inquest within a few days possibly after the funeral of the three victims of the accident. At that time members of the train crew and Mr. Hoffman will be questioned as will others who arrived at the scene a short time after the tragedy occurred.

Clarence FENTERS, aged 50, for many years a resident of Macy died Wednesday morning at 11:30 o'clock at the home of his daughter, Mrs. David McKILLEN in Marion. Death was due to a stroke of apoplexy which he suffered an hour previous.
The deceased was born on Oct. 24, 1884, at Deedsville, the son of Philip and Susan FENTERS. Mr. Fenters was a barber and operated a barber shop in Macy for a number of years. He had been employed in tonsorial parlors in Rochester and Peru at various times. During the past few years he has been a traveling salesman.
Five years ago Mr. Fenters moved to Marion to make his home. Twenty-five years ago he was married to Miss Louise STRONG of Akron in a ceremony which was performed in Rochester.

A triple funeral service will be held from the Methodist Church in Akron at 1:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon for the victims of a grade crossing accident two and half miles southeast of Akron on Thursday night.
The victims are Mrs. Ralph HOFFMAN, aged 40, son DeVon [HOFFMAN], aged 9, and daughter Willodean [HOFFMAN], aged 12, who were killed when a car in which they were riding with Mr. Hoffman was struck by a fast Chicago and Erie railroad passenger train at a private crossing on the Hoffman farm.

Dr. Dean STINSON, county coroner, has conducted a partial inquest into the tragedy which snuffed out the lives of three members of the Hoffman family. Mr. Hoffman has made a statement to the coroner as have several of the neighbors. The members of the Erie train crew are to be questioned by Dr. Stinson before he makes public his findings.
The accident in which the Hoffmans met their death occurred while the family was on their way to Akron for another son DuWayne [HOFFMAN], aged 15, who was attending a church party. The crossing where they met their death is 150 feet from the Hoffmans' home. The accident it is believed was caused by a heavy fog or a vapor on the window of the car which obstructed Hoffman's view of the crossing.
Mr. Hoffman was a fireman on the Erie railroad for fourteen years resigning two years ago after his father's death to go onto the farm. He was born on the farm. The Hoffman family lived in Huntington during the time the father was employed by the railroad. Their three children were born there. The father and the son are the only survivors.
The scene of the accident was visited by many persons during the past two days. Hoffman had to go over an overhead bridge to reach the crossing where the tragedy occurred. When the Erie railroad was double tracked across the Hoffman farm the west bound track was built 35 feet lower than the east bound one. The overhead bridge is over the west bound track while the east bound track is flush with the road.

DR. WILLIS E. HOSMAN
[editorial]
Rochester citizens and friends join their neighbors of the City of Akron in sincere regret for the passing of Dr. Willis E. Hosman, prominent physician and citizen of Akron. Dr. Hosman possessed that type of true public-spirited citizenship which builds for the betterment of community, county and country.
This Akron citizen throughout his two score or more years of residency in Henry township, not only found time to administer untiringly and efficiently to a wide clientele in his professional capacity, but also carried a full brunt of the burdens in the civic, social and commercial welfare of his community and county. Dr. Hosman at the time of his death was President of the Town Board of Akron and for a long number of years was active in the various interests of the Akron Chamber of Commerce. At the time a movement was launched for securing of State Highway No. 14, which connects Rochester and Akron, Dr. Hosman worked unrelentlessly until the project became a reality.
Despite the never ending array of missions which befell a man of his profession, he always found time to keep in close harmony with those in all stations of life and through his kind understanding, with those less fortunate than himself, he built up a legion of friends throughout, not only Henry township, but the entire county. Akron, Rochester and Fulton county have lost a highly efficient physician, a true citizen, and a genuine friend.

OBITUARY
[also photo of deceased]
Rebecca Jane [HARTMAN BOWEN], daughter of Sarah and Wesley HARTMAN was born in Ohio on October 27, 1854 and departed this life, after a year's illness with heart trouble on March 13, 1935 at the age of 80 years 4 months and 14 days. When but a small girl the family moved to Indiana and spent the remainder of her life in Fulton and Miami counties. Sixty-two years ago on February 27, 1873 she was united in marriage to John P. BOWEN. To this union were born fifteen children, two of whom, Ida [BOWEN], age 11 days, Nellie Ann [BOWEN], age 3 years, preceded her in death. Of the surviving children there are eight sons, Wesley [BOWEN], Nelson [BOWEN], Joe [BOWEN], George [BOWEN], Clem [BOWEN], Sam [BOWEN], Ray [BOWEN] and Vernie [BOWEN], and five daughters, Mrs. Elva MECHLING, Mrs. Martha KINDIG, Mrs. Sarah WELLER, Mrs. Alice NORRIS, and Mrs. Rose MILLER. Besides these children and the beloved and aged husband there remain to mourn her departure 59 grandchildren, sixty-seven great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild, one sister, Mrs. Eliza FEECE, one brother Henry HARTMAN, and one foster brother Andrew HARTMAN, besides a host of other relatives and friends.
The sixty-two years of their married life they have spent happily on the farm laboring for the support of themselves and children. The obligation of rearing a family was assumed with a full realization of its importance and with a consciousness of their need of the buiding power of God's Divining Hand and the watchful care of His all seeing Eye. Early in their married life they became co-workers in Christ and have always remained faithful to Him in all their trials and labors throughout this long and happy companionship. After 31 years spent on the farm in the vicinity of Akron she with her husband and children moved to their present home in Richland Township where she became an active member of the Bethel M.E. Church and a highly honored and respected citizen of the community. Her pure, noble and upright Christian life won a cherished place in the hearts and memory of all who knew her. Her life was a busy life until the end, because her greatest joy and happiness was found in serving her family and friends. In rearing her large family many trials, hardships heartaches and disappointments were met; but with tenderness, patience and a will to succeed that could not be surpassed she shouldered them and made life seem easy for her family.
Though her death marked the end of the earthly life of a devoted and faithful wife, a noble, kind, patient, and loving mother, a useful, honored and beloved citizen, the good she has done shall live on forever and her soul has gone to the God who gave it, there, where sorrow and pain are unknown and with loved ones that have gone on before she awaits our coming.

* * * * [photo of Edwin C. Mercer] * * * *
In the accident Mrs. Mercer was seriously injured and Mrs. Fred MERCER their daughter-in-law received minor cuts and bruises. Mr. Mercer's death was due to a fracture of the skull and chest injuries.
The accident occurred five miles south of Rochester on Road 25 in front of the Alvine OLIVER farm, when a Buick sedan driven by Mr. Mercer struck the front end of a Chevrolet coach driven by Hugh NORRIS, farmer, living six and half miles south of the city on Road 25.
Mr. Norris was driving out of the driveway at the Oliver farm and stopped his coarch at the east edge of the pavement. Mr. Norris said that he looked to the south and saw a car approaching. This auto obstructed his view of the Mercer car. Norris said he permitted this machine to pass and then looked to the north to see if any car was approaching.
Mr. Norris saw a machine coming from the north and permitted it to pass and then again glanced to the south and saw the Mercer machine approaching. Norris says that he stopped his auto at the edge of the pavement and that Mercer evidently mistaking Norris' intention swerved his car to the west.
In so doing Mr. Mercer struck the front bumper of the Chevrolet swerving the car to the north. The Mercer sedan darted to the west and then to the east where it left the road about 150 feet north of the Oliver driveway and went into a ditch where it struck a high embankment and turned over. Mrs. Fred Mercer says that a portion of the Norris car was on the pavement at the time it was struck.

Mrs. Mercer received cuts about the face and her right limb was fractured above the knee in two places and a bone in her face was broken. Her condition today was reported as critical.

Mr. Mercer was the president of the company. Mr. Mercer was driving the car while his wife and daughter-in-law were riding in the rear seat. Mrs. Mercer was sitting directly back of her husband.
Mr. Mercer was born in Marshall county on March 15, 1862. His parents who were Thomas and Mary MERCER moved to this county from Marshall when Mr. Mercer was quite young. He has continued to reside in Fulton county since that time.

The members of the St. Joseph Catholic Church were informed today by Bishop F. NOLL, D.D. of Fort Wayne that Rev. Bruno SOENGEN, aged 78, former priest in charge of the church here had died in Mainz, Germany where he was living in retirement.
Rev. Soengen, who was a priest in the Fort Wayne diocese for many years died last Friday, the cablegram which Bishop Noll received stated. Rev. Soengen held his residence at Monterey where he was in charge of the Catholic Church but made regular trips to the mission church in this city. The St. Joseph Church at that time was on West Eighth Street.
Fr. Soengen was born in Mentz, Germany, August 8, 1856, and pursued his studies for the priesthood in Mentz, Innsbrook and Rome. Fifty-six years ago, he was ordained priest by Boshop HALLER, co-adjuster of Trent, on February 8, 1870. He was a member of the Capuchin order until 1894 and came to Fort Wayne July 18, 1895.
He was an assistant at SS, Peter and Paul church, Huntington, until December 9, 1895; pastor of St. Catherine's church, Nix settlement, Whitley county; with St. Joseph's church, Roanoke, Huntington county, as a mission until July 1, 1905. He then left on a trip to Europe and upon his return was appointed, November 15, 1905, as assistant at St. Joseph's church and chaplain at St. Margaret's hospital, Hammond.
Later he was transferred to the pastorate of St. Ann's church, Monterey, where he remained until a few years ago. On account of his advanced age he was desirous of spending his remaining years in his native land and accordingly his resignation from pastoral work in the diocese was accepted by the bishop.
Rev. Soengen was one of the few priests in the United States who wore a beard. While serving as a chaplain in the British Army in India Father Soengen contracted a fever which settled in his throat.
Doctors in attendance stated that he would have to in the future wear a beard as a protection to his throat. To be able to wear a full beard it was necessary to obtain a special dispensation from the pope which dispensation was granted as soon as the Holy Father was informed of Father Soengen's condition.
Rev. Soengen was short and stout and had a very ruddy complexion. In later years his beard was snow white and he very much resembled Santa Claus. Because of his great resemblance to Santa Claus Father Soengen was a great favorite with children. Because of his kindly disposition Rev. Soengen was revered and loved by not only his parishioners but by others as well.

William SAWMILLER, 62, of Lima, Ohio, a wagon driver employed by the COLE BROS.-CLYDE BEATTY CIRCUS, was instantly killed Saturday morning in an accident in which he was crushed on top of his wagon. No one saw the man as he was injured, but it is almost certain he was caught between the wagon and a steel beam at the top of a door. The accident occurred at the large northwest door of the paint shop and elephant barn.
Sawmiller was driving a two-horse team from the high seat of a circus baggage wagon. The men had helped about the wagon when he started out with the horses. It is thought that he was looking back to see that his wagon was all clear, and that the team with loose reins plunged forward. The driver was evidently caught by the steel beam and knocked back on the top. His head was cut and his chest crushed as the wagon was pulled out.
The horses then with no one to control them ran out of the door, swung to the right and followed the curving roadway. At a point just east of the Anchor Mills, they ran each on one side of a heavy electric light pole, smashing the wagon into it at the driver's seat. When the first helpers arrived they found the dying man lying on his back close up against the pole.
Several persons living near the route taken by the horses stated they saw the man lying on his back on top of the wagon and the horses evidently out of control. They also saw the wagon hit the pole. The theory was advanced by some that Sawmiller was killed when the wagon struck the pole, but it was evident from witnesses that he was unconscious and dying when the runaway team rushed out of the paint shop.
He was taken down by circus employees and brought to the Woodlawn Hospital but physicians stated he had probably been instantly killed.
The body was moved to the Val Zimmerman Funeral Home where Dr. Dean STINSON made an examination of the body. It was found that the second, third and fourth ribs on each side were broken. A long and very deep cut extended from the left side of the mouth and curved under the chin. Internal injuries caused by fractured ribs it is believed caused death, Dr. Stinson stated.
Mr. Sawmiller, according to local circus employees was a veteran circus man. He had been employed as a driver by circuses in this country for a number of years. In his personal belongings was a check showing that he had been employed last summer by the Ringling Brothers circus.
Little could be learned about Mr. Sawmiller's life. From identification cards on his person it was found that he was born on September 8, 1873 at 529 Kenilworth Avenue, Lima Ohio and that N. E. SETTLEMIRE, 529 Kenilworth Avenue, Lima, Ohio was to be notified in case of an accident. Sawmiller has a brother who resides at 391 East 120th street, Cleveland, Ohio. A recent letter in Sawmiller's effects showed that he had been living sometime during the past winter at 306-1/2 Fingle ave., Lima.
The officers of the Cole Brothers circus and local police have notified relatives of Sawmiller's death. It is presumed that they will come to this city either tonight or Sunday and claim the body.

Just how the aged man happened to get into the path of the automobile is debatable. Lyons didn't know that he had struck him until he saw him laying on the ground and there were no witnesses.

When Lyons saw the man on the ground he jumped out of the car without switching off the ignition or applying the brakes and the vehicle ran out into a commons across the alley from the garage and thumped into an embankment as the young man reached the side of the mortally injured Dulmatch.
A doctor was summoned to the home and when he arrived the patient was transferred to the hospital.

George Edward EVANS, age 49, of 522 East 8th Street, who was better known as Ed EVANS, was instantly killed and Lloyd REESE, aged 42, farmer living in the Burton neighborhood, west of this city, was seriously injured at 4 o'clock Tuesday morning when a silo on the Otto McMAHAN farm, three miles west of this city, collapsed. The farm which is tenanted by Lloyd WILLIAMS, is known also as the HOLZ and the BLIGH farm.
Evans and Reese with nine other men, Lee LEWIS, Devern BRUBAKER, Nelson HUNTER, Alvin HALE, Howard [EISENMAN] and Floyd EISENMAN, George BIGGS, Emerson SHAW and Mr. Williams were filling the silo with corn mash obtained from the ROCHESTER CANNING FACTORY where sweet corn is now being packed. The mash was being made into ensilage.
Evans and Reese were working inside the silo while the other nine men were working on the outside. The silo was built of tile and cement reinforced with wire and was of the latest and considered the safest type of construction. It had been inspected regularly by representatives of the company which built it several years ago.
The silo was 65 feet high and 14 feet in diameter and had a capacity of 500 tons of ensilage. It was half filled with the corn mash when without warning it started to crack twenty feet from the base. The men outside the silo shouted to Evans and Reese while they ran to the east and to the north of the barn. The silo was located on the east side of the barn.
Evans and Reese were trapped inside of the silo which toppled to the south. The two men were buried in ensilage to a depth of three feet when found by the other workmen. They were thrown thirty feet from the base of the silo. Evans when reached was found dead. Internal injuries had caused his death. The pulmotor from the Rochester fire department was used by firemen on Evans.
Reese was located by Lee Lewis, who saw his feet sticking out from under a large pile of the ensilage. A few minutes later and he would have suffocated. Reese who is the father of six small children was moved to the Woodlawn Hospital, where it was found that he had suffered multiple cuts and contusions on the head some of them from one to four inches deep and to the scalp.
X-ray pictures were being made today at the hospital in an effort to determine if Reese had suffered a fracture of the skull. He complained of pains in the back, and it is possible that his spine is injured. It is believed however that he will recover from his injuries.
The cause of the collapse has not been determined as it was believed the silo was one of the safest and best manufactured. Mr. McMahan has started an investigation to determine the cause of the crash. It is thought pressure from the corn mash caused the sides of the silo to bulge and then crumple. When the silo toppled over it pulled a portion of the siding and cracked the cement foundation of the barn on the east side.
Reese and Evans and the other men had been working overtime at the McMahan farm in an effort to keep up with the men employed at the Rochester Canning Factory, who worked all of last night to care for the sweet corn which was being delivered to the plant. Had the accident occurred ten minutes later neither of the men would have been injured as Evans and Reese were packing the corn mash in the silo from the last load of corn which was to be delivered from the factory for the day.
Mr. Evans was born in Macy, Indiana on September 13, 1886. He was the son of R. B. and Anna (REDDING) EVANS. He has lived in this city since 1913 when he came here from North Dakota, where he had been employed as a cow puncher. Evans worked in battery and tire repair shops here for several years.

The deceased was married to Miss Laurel ERWIN in a ceremony which was performed in this city on December 5, 1933. Mr. Evans was a member of the Moose Lodge of this city.

Mr. Walters stopped his car quickly, so quickly that the machine turned completely around on the pavement. The body was moved to the side of the highway until officers arrived and it was then moved to a nearby farm house and later to an undertaking parlor in Peru.
Dr. Newell released Walters after questioning him and several other witnesses to the accident. A number of Rochester people came upon the scene a few minutes after Pritz was killed. Mr. Walters is a traveling salesman and is employed by the Mechanic Tool and Supply Company, Indianapolis.

Elizabeth Catherine ABBOTT, daughter of Strawder and Elizabeth Jane ABBOTT, was born in Liberty township, Fulton County, Dec. 21, 1857; entered celestial life at her late home northwest of Fulton, Aug. 29, 1935, aged 77 years, 8 months and 8 days.
On January 17, 1878, she was united in marriage with Franklin E. KOCHENDERFER, in a ceremony in which the late Rev. William WILDERMUTH officiated, at the home of her parents, near Mt. Olive. It is worthy of note that their marital union continued in happy accord for almost fifty-seven years, until the scythe of time severed the brittle thread in the hour of dissolution. To their union two daughters were born, Bertha Olive [ABBOTT], wife of Albert Newton CLEMANS, and Perley A. E. [ABBOTT], passed to higher life in infancy.

Mr. and Mrs. Kochenderfer were distinguished as pioneer citizens of Fulton county, having established their home close to the present habitation, when it was their province to engage in reduction of the forest and transform the primitive to the modern cultivation of today. Their days were numbered by measure of filial love and steadfast confidence until the present sorrow fixed the end of their temporal marital journey. It was the knowledge of friends, neighbors, relatives, that the home life of Mrs. Kochenderfer, her charity and benevolence, was eloquently attested by the constancy and respect of many devoted friends, for no unkind criticism was uttered by her for any person.
The deceased was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, having united with that denomination at Mt. Olive, under the ministration of the late Rev. ROSS, and was baptized in that faith on Sept. 18, 1892. To that conviction she clung with unfaltering trust to the end. That her transition was that of sublime peace, a joyful reunion with arisen kindred in a glad "good morning" greeting, must be conceded as just reward for her daily walk in Christian faith.
Funeral obsequies were conducted in Fulton United Brethren Church, Saturday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock, Rev. Harley W. FRANKLIN, of Decatur, Ind., in charge. Interment at Salem cemetery.

Kansas City, Mo., Sept. 9. (UP) -- Mary MANNERS of Plymouth, Ind., entertainer with the Carlos Molina band, took her life late Sunday by plunging nine stories from her hotel room. She had taken poison previous to the jump.
Notes left to her family said she felt she had made a big mistake by thinking she ever could be a singer.
Molina said the girl's singing was satisfactory.
She had shown no signs of despondency, he said. Police believed the girl's feeling of inferiority led to her suicide.
She came here from Chicago where Molina engaged her following a radio audition.
The hotel clerk reported he had given Miss Manners a letter about ten minutes before her body was found. She appeared normal, when she entered the elevator. Police said the suicide notes were prepared before she received the letter.
Miss Mary Manners, who leaped to her death from a Kansas City hotel, had adopted that name professionally when she quit the Plymouth High School to become a singer a little over a year ago. Her real name was Mary ALLEMAN, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry ALLEMAN, of Plymouth.
Miss Alleman was well known to a large number of Rochester young people, she having visited relatives and friends in this city, and on numerous occasions, she had given impromptu vocal selections at the Colonial Gardens, Lake Manitou.

The girl, while a student in the Plymouth high school and an employee in a beauty shop operated by her sister, left school to go to Chicago to take voice training. There she was given an audition and signed a contract with the orchestra with which she was appearing at the time of her suicide. She had intended to return to Plymouth and complete her high school course at the conclusion of her contract.
Mary, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry ALLEMAN, was born in Argos, Ind., about 18 or 19 years ago. Seventeen years of her life was spent in Argos. She then removed with her parents to Plymouth, where she was a student in the high school until she signed a contract with the Molina orchestra.
Miss Alleman was a member of the Argos Christian Church. She is survived by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry ALLEMAN, of Plymouth, two sisters, Mrs. Edwin UMBAUGH, of Plymouth, Mrs. Earl BLANCHARD, of Culver, and a brother Donald ALLEMAN of Plymouth.
Funeral arrangements were not completed as this issue of the News-Sentinel went to press.
Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Umbaugh of Plymouth and Mr. and Mrs. Frank UMBAUGH of Argos, relatives of Miss Alleman, left Sunday morning for Kansas City to visit with relatives and Miss Alleman.
Although Plymouth relatives were unable to get in communication with the Umbaughs, it was believed they would accompany the body of the suicide victim to Plymouth.

Henderson, Kentucky, Sept. 10 (UP) -- Gene SUTHERLAND, 19, member of an orchestra playing in a night club here, today denied that a broken romance with him was responsible for the suicide Sunday night of Mary ALLEMAN, 18 year old radio singer, at Kansas City, Missouri.
Sutherland said he knew Miss Alleman when she sang with an orchestra in which he was playing. She mentioned marriage twice, Sutherland said, but he was not in favor of it. The last

time he saw Miss Alleman, Sutherland said was in South Bend two months ago, where she was visiting her family.
Two weeks ago he received a letter from her asking that they be good friends, Sutherland said, to which he replied wishing her luck and declaring he would always regard her as a sister.
Miss Alleman met Sutherland while he was playing with Lloyd AUER and his 14 Virginians orchestra which played at a Lake Manitou dance pavilion in the first part of the summer of 1934.
The band left the lake and played a two months engagement in July and August of 1934 at Coloma, Mich. Miss Alleman joined the band when they left Lake Manitou and appeared with them during their appearance at Coloma as an entertainer.

In 1932 he was appointed postmaster of Rochester, which commission he held until 1933 when by virtue of political changes he was succeeded by the present official, Hugh McMAHAN. Since his retirement from the postoffice he has been affiliated with Mr. Fretz in the abstracting business.

Mr. DuBois' long association with public office gave him the groundwork of a wide acquaintance in Fulton County. And being possessed of a retentive mind, and a natural desire to serve he soon became one of the leading factors of local Republican politics. In 1920 he was elected secretary of the County Republican Central Committee and in 1924 was elevated to the chairmanship of the party, a duty which he fulfilled with credit to himself and his party until his appointment as Postmaster in 1932.
On Jan. 21, 1912, Mr. DuBois was united in marriage with Miss Mabel FRETZ. To this union three sons, Robert [DuBOIS], Benjamin [DuBOIS] and Thomas [DuBOIS], and one daughter, Dorothy Jean [DuBOIS] were born, who with the widow, two brothers, Keort [DuBOIS] and Ross [DuBOIS], and one sister, Mrs. Ethel DEWEY, all of Rochester, and an uncle William R. DuBOIS of North Manchester, survive.
