Red Cloud Mourns Death
of Warren G. Harding
This city made a last united express'
lou of Its sorrow over the death of the
29th President, Warrtn (! Harding, in
a great mass meeting in tlio Audttoi-
nini last Friday.
A parade consisting of the American.
Legion, with their colors flying, the
Mssoiis and the business men and
women of the city formed a parade at
the. corner of -1th and Webster and
marched a block west on lih aveutiu
and thence south n block and east back
to Wtjbsti'r and then north 2 blocks
around the Hug polu and into the audi
torium where tho services wuro hold.
This Service took place at the same
hour as the body of the President was
given to its grave in his home town of
Marlon, Ohio Such observance weio
but a tlttiiiK climax to the ,'IOUO mile
funeral service which Mr. Harding's
follow men and women, whom ho lov
ed, accorded him all over this country.
People' have gathered along the rail
road over which passed the funeral
train) and with bowed heads have
besought tho Almighty to bring coin,
fort to the aching hearts and safe gui
dance to tho country through its
The program at tho auditorium was
very brief and simple. A large picture
of the deceased was prominent ln(ront
of the footlights, draped in a large ling
tled-vUu crepe. The Community
Chorus sang the late President's favor
ite songs in reverential maimer. Kev.
Fitzgerald gave thu invocation; Kev.
J. M. Batos gave the scripture reading.
Five speakers guvo dtlfereitt phases of
Elariling'slife. They were: J. S. Gil
ham, E. J. Overiug, F. E. Maurer. I.
W. Edson and L. II. Blnckledge. Each
speaker made very fitting and eloquent
remarks of Pros. Harding, from his
boyhood to tho presidency. Tlio.v
spoke of him as an enterprising young
man of Marion, Ohio, whoro ho rose
from obscure poverity to world wide
fame; where he and his wife had
struggled together to make thu "Marlon
Star" a success; whore he had made his
front porch campaigns for many otllces
He was a self made man in tho best
sense of the phrase, and was known as
Marlon's first citizen.
The choir sang another selection
after which Rev. H. E. Tweedy pro
uounced tho benediction.
His untimely death shocked the
tuition and the world. As a single
mourner, the American nation stood
with bowed head on Friday afternoon
in reverent respect for their departed
leader. And not only tho American
people, but also foreign powers paused
to pay tribute to the illustrious dead.
