A complete story o f the contest PIONEER CALLED W OM AN OF VALLEY TO LAST REW ARD Maria Catherine Morris, a pioneer of Jackson county since the early days, passed away at her home in Central Point Sunday afternoon at the age of 78 years, 9 months and 17 days. She was a native of Illinois and came west at the age o f one year anad resided with her parents in California until her marriage to A. W. Morris, who was called to his reward many years ago. Her father was a pioneer minister o f Jackson county and established the Christian church at Medford. He will be re membered by the early settlers as the Rev. Martin Peterson and preach ed at various places over the valley. Thus in the passing o f Mrs. Morris, Oregon loses another o f the few re maining pioneers o f ’49. She leaves three children, A. R. Morris and Mae M. Jacobs o f Cen tral Point and W. M. Morris of Horn- brook, California. Also two grand children, Edith L. Jacobs and Ger ald M. Morris. Funeral services were at her late residence in Central Point at 10:30 o’clock Tuesday morning. Rev. Shaw o f 'the Christian chyrch, o f which she was a member, officiated. Serv ices were in charge o f the Conger Funeral Parlors. Interment was made at the Central Point cemetery. ■ o----------- R R G U E R I V E R V A L L E Y MEN The men from well nigh all over the valley o f the Rogue will meet at Cowley Hall next Sunday morn ing at 10 a. m. The plan o f campaign for tne class this year will take the form o f a multi-community co-operation, and there will be, (if the Great Bible Class formally adopts the pro gram already outlined) special days in which the various communities of the valley will be especially recog nized, throughout the year. The new slogan fo r the Men’s class is “ Better than a community, bigger than a town,’’ A pioneer— the class is working at a big job, in a big way. The only thing o f its kind in the world, the world is watching its work; with enquiries from all over the United States, as to its methods; and the “ why” and “ how” o f its growth. Men, don’t forget that there are two Sunday schools in Central Point, either o f which will be happy to welcome your wives, your sweet hearts or your children to their classes. Bring your women folk along, let them attend the Bible school o f their choice, while you get in with the Rogue River Valley Men. — Contributed ---------- o----------- SO ORE.
