WILLIAM PILKINGTON DIES IN HIS HOME

FUNERAL IS FRIDAY

Funeral services will be conducted for William T. Pilkington, 74-year-old founder of Mountain Truck Sales at Sprague, at 10 a.m. Friday in St. Stephen's Episcopal Church.

He died early yesterday morning at his North Kanawha street home after a lengthy illness. He recently had returned from Johns Hopkins hospital in Baltimore, where he had undergone treatment for two months.

Pilkington recently was succeeded as president of the motor company by his son, William T. Pilkington, Jr., only surviving member of his immediate family. Two grand-children also survive, along with one sister, Mrs. Ada B. Fleck, of Pittsburgh, Pa.
