Ernest M. (Swede) Anderson, 74, retired postal employee, died early Saturday morning at his home after a lingering illness.

He was instrumental years ago in organizing junior baseball in the city, which he personally financed to a large extent. He was also active in all of the Masonic lodges.

Mr. Anderson was born March 1, 1897, at Denver, Colo., son of Charles Otto and Ingrid Monson Anderson. The family moved to Idaho Falls in 1903, where he attended schools and grew up. He enlisted in the U.S. Army during World War I and served in Brest, France. Shortly after returning to Idaho Falls he entered the postal service as mailman retiring in 1957 after 37 years service.

He married Nellie Taylor Aug. 23, 1924 at Idaho Falls. They made their home here since.

Active in City - In addition to directing junior baseball, Mr. Anderson also played semi-pro baseball. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church; Eagle Rock Lodge No. 19 A.F. and A.M., serving as master; Royal Arch Masons and had served as past high priest of that body; Knights Templar and the El, Korah Shrine; past president of Snake River Shrine Club and also served as secretary; past patron of Henrietta Chapter 21, Order of Eastern Star.

Survivors are his widow, Nellie Anderson; two sisters, Mrs. L. P. (Lillian) Baker, and Mrs. Harold (Victoria) Olsen both of Idaho Falls.
