From Wednesday's Dally.
The message that came this morn
ing from Omaha announcing Mie
death in that city at 4 o'clock this
morning of Wayne F. Dicksoi..
brought to this eommunitv a sense'
of the deepest grief at the taking'
away of this splendid young man in '
the full flush of his voung man -
hood. Wayne had teen sick for ru'v
a short time but was taken with an
attack of pneumonia and his condi-,
tien had gradually grown worse iin-
til the end came despite all that skill 1
and tender care could do to stav "he
visitation of the death messenger.
Wayne F. Dickson was born
riattsmouth July 2S. 1S92, and up ,
until a few years ago made his home
here where his noble character and
bright genial disposition won for
him a host of friends whose friend
ship is terminated only by sad call
of the young man to his eternal re
ward. Mr. Dickson was educated in
the schools here and after leaving
school was for a numbers of years
employed in the lumber business of
his grandfather. F. M. Itichey. and
J-ster associated with, his uncle. E, J.
Richey, in- this line cf work. On
Christmas day, 1914. Wayne was
united in marriage to Miss Clee Ap
plepate cf Union, who with the lit
tle daughter. Louise, aged five years,
are left to mourn the death of the
kind and loving husban; and father.
The young man leaves to share the
grief of the wife and child. Mrs. Fan

Since his removal from riatts

pects of a great business future when
he was stricken down with the last
The funeral arrangements have
not been announced as yet owing to
the condition of Mrs. Dickson who is
in very poor health at the present
time. '
In the passing of Wayne Dickson
the world has lost a splendid figure
of young manhood and his calling
away is not only a bitter loss to those
whem he loved within the family
circle but to the community at Inrg.

Robert Jacks and Hugh Kearns. Two of Organization Who
Fell in Battle in France.
Fr.m Tuesday' Dnllv.
Yesterday morning was observed
by the members of the young men's
bible class of the Methodist church
as the occasion for the demobiliza
tion of their service flag which has
been cn display in the class rooms
since the outbreak of the world war
in 1917. This flag bore 32 stars, two
cf which are golden in memory of
two members of the class who gave
their lives for their country in the
battles of the American offensive in
France in the late summer of 191S,
Robert Jacks and Hugh Kearns. and
in honor of the memory of Mr.
Kearns the local American Legion
post has be?n named. The class has
been very proud of the showing
made in the war in the generous re
sponse to the call of the country to
her sons to arm and defend the prin
ciples of humanity and civilization
and the flag tells the silent story of
the patriotism of the young men who
have and a large of part of whom are
still members of the class.
During the war the service flag of
both the church and the class was in
charge of Mrs. F. R. Gobleman, who
has kept the flags up to date and
who had framed and presented to the
church the service flag representing
its membership and will do the same
for the flag belonging to the bible
class. Mrs. Gobleman assisted at
the ceremony yesterday as the silver
stripes were placed across the stars
to signify that the soldier or sailor
had terminated their term of service
to the country. The class stood bow
ed in reverent silence for several min
utes as a tribute to the memory of
the two of the class who sleep amid
the war swept areas of France where
they had made the supreme sacrifice
to make the world free from tyranny
and intolerance.
It is hoped to have the. flag fram
ed and placed on the walls of the
bible classroom in time for the ban
