The service will be conducted at the home at 2:30 p. m. by the Rev. F. W. Lineberry of the First Methodist Protestant church, and burial will be at Grace Lawn cemetery.

Beside Mr. Baer there survive five children; three grandchildren; a brother, Phillip Wagner of Garden City, Kas., and a sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Nuding of Wauneta, Neb.
The children are Henry W., Herman C. and Carl F. Baer, Mrs. W. C. (Emelia) Conley and Mrs. W. L. (Anna) Zuber, all of Elkhart. Two sisters, Mrs. Herman (Katherine) Borneman and Mrs. Ulrich (Christina) Hege, who were residents of Elkhart, preceded her in death.
