VETERAN STAR EMPLOYEE DIES
Carl M. Reynolds, Pressroom Foreman, Succumbs After Lingering Illness
Carl M. Reynolds, 56 years old, 2222 South Center street, for 25 years, foreman of the Terre Haute Star's pressroom and The Star's oldest employee in length of service, died at his home shortly before 11 o'clock last night after a protracted illness of four months. Mr. Reynolds ended his long career in the press room, where he had built up an enviable reputation among all who knew him as a master of his trade on June 29, when he left the paper for a 30-day vacation, during which he hoped to recuperate from an illness. Failing to rally, he was taken to the hospital and underwent an operation for appendicitis. .This did not relieve his weakened condition, however, and he gradually failed until his death. Immediate cause of his passing was from cancer. He was attended by his brother-in-law, Dr. Rudolph Duenweg.
Reynolds came to Terre Haute from Indianapolis, where he had been in the pressroom of the Indianapolis News, one month before the Terre Haute Star took over the Express. He supervised the setting up of The Star's first press and was in charge of the pressroom of The Star from that time on.
Was Master Workman
Reynolds took great pride in his work and "his press" as he always referred to the big machine, loving it almost as much as his closest friend. It had been said more than once during his long period of service that no one could handle the press like he, because he knkew every roll, rod, nut and bolt in the machine.
During the year of 1927 a committee of inspectors from the international pressman's union made an inspection tour of all the union pressrooms in the United States abd reported that The Terre Haute Star was the best printed paper in the entire United States. This was but a partial recognitionof the high standard of work turned out by Reynolds and his press.
He is survived by the widow, Mrs. Marie Duenweg-Reynolds; five sisters, Mrs. Rose Fisher and Mrs. Julia Nelson of Indianapolis, Mrs. Herman Habech of Culver, Ind., and Mrs. Edward Ramsey and Miss Elizabeth Reynolds of Cleveland; and two brothers, Otto of Indianapolis, and Claude of Cleveland. He was a member of the Terre Haute Pressman's Union No. 209 and of B.P.O.E Elks Lodge No. 86.
Funeral services, in charge of the Elks' Lodge, will be held at the residence Friday afternoon.
