G. A. K. Man Passed
Away Saturday
George W. Beale, a veteran of the
Civil War and a member of the G. A.
R., passed away in Centrrl Point last
Saturday, April 28th, at 5:30 p. m.
Mr. Beale had been a sufferer since
September, 1916, and death came as the
result of the infirmities of old age.
He was 78 years, 3 months and 15 days
old when death came.
The funeral was held Monday, April
30, at 2 o’clock p. m , Rev. P. S. Bandy
officiating.
Mr. Beale was born in Ohio, and
served throughout the four years of the
civil war, «pending nine months in a
Confederate prison.
He crossed the
plains by team from Missouri in 1874
coming to Oregon to settle. He had
been a farmer until he became too old
for work. The following children sur­
vive him, his wife having died in Mon­
tana in 1876: C. C. Beale of Central
Point, W. A. Beale of Butte Falls, and
Mrs. Alice Foley of Gold Hill.
Y. M. C, A. Sunday, May 13th
Sunday, May 13th, has been set aside
for presenting the work of the Y. M.
C. A. in the army and navy, by the
pastors and representatives of other
organizations. Rev. Paul S. Bandy of
the Presbyterian Church will preach a
sermon relative to this work on that
Sunday. He is also planning to have
speakers go to the different community
centers in this part of the valley to
present this work. This county has
been asked to raise $15,000 for the
Y. M. C. A. work in the army and navy.
Further details, and names of the
speakers, will be announced next week.
To American farmers
The White House, April 18,
1917.
To the Farmers of the Country:
At the present moment it is
our plain duty to take adequate
steps that not only our own peo-
le be fed, but that we may, if
possible, answer the call for food
of other nations now at war. In
this greatest of human needs I
feel that the American farmer
will do his part to the uttermost.
By planting and increasing in
his production in every way pos­
sible, every farmer will perform
a iabor of patriotism for which
he will be recognized as a soldier
of the commissary, adding his
share to the food supply of the
people.
(Signed.) WOODROW WILSON.
