from the Daily Herald (a coast newspaper) of 28 July 1921.
Through Mrs. C. E. Jacobs of Saucier it has been learned that Mrs. Walter W. Scales a very prominent lady of North Mississippi in benevolent work and also in the Eastern Star, died at her home in Starkville a few days ago. Mrs. Jacobs' son, Riley Hood, an old member of Mrs. Scales' Sunday School class, was called to the deathbed of the prominent lady and after her death he remained over for the funeral which was held on Saturday, July 10th. He stated that the floral offering at the funeral was the most varied and the most beautiful group of flowers that he had ever seen. Mrs. Scales had a Sunday School class of one hundred and twenty-five A. & M. boys in the Methodist Church at Starkville and for thirteen years she taught this class of boys which was a really new class each year. The class was called the Character Builder's Class. She was a source of inspiration to thousands of boys who have attended the A. & M. College and was unusually well acquainted all over the state.
