Emil Blank, Lifelong Decatur Resident, Dies

He leaves two sisters, Mrs. Emily Ferguson and Mrs. E. J. Haas, both of Los Angeles, Calif., and a niece, Helen Ferguson, a movie actress also of Los Angeles. Miss Ferguson sent a notification to Decatur yesterday that transportation difficulties would make it impossible for her and the two sisters to arrive here for the funeral.
