A. E. BERLIN , Last rites for A. E. Berlin, prominent Rock Falls citizen and former chief of police, were held Thursday afternoon at 2 from the late home and 2:30 from the Wheelock funeral home. Rev. Harry E. Shiffer, the Rock Falls Christian church, preached the funeral sermon directing comforting passages of scripture to the bereaved family. During the services Mrs. H. E. Shiffer and Mrs. Leonard Skaggs sang three hymns, 'The Old Rugged Cross,' 'Beautiful Isle of Somewhere,' and 'Rock of Ages.' Mrs. Austin Corzett accompanied at the piano. There were many beautiful floral pieces silently paying tribute to the memory of the departed. Six members of the Rock Falls elementary school board, L. L. Winn, Charles A. Smith, H. F. Figeley, Herman Oltman, E. C. Wolf and L. C. Pfulb, were pallbearers. Interment took place in the Odd Fellows cemetery, Rock Falls.

Mr. Berlin, who was custodian at Thome school in Rock Falls, died of a heart attack last Tuesday afternoon just as he was about to depart from the building.

Out of town relatives and friends attending the rites were: Miss Daisy Berlin and Mr. and Mrs. Roy Berlin, Chicago; Mr. and Mrs. Ted Kalb, Western Springs; Mr. and Mrs. Robert Weaver, Milwaukee, Wis.; Mrs. Nell Coonley, Mrs. Beth Stone, Mrs. Evelyn Gonyon and Miss Venita George, Morrison.
