Mercer Boy's Funeral Draws Many Friends

The funeral of Ralph Albert Anderson, formerly a student of William and Vashti College, later employed in DE Farr's clothing store, and then returning to his father's farm hoping to regain his health, was conducted from the home of his parents, Mr and Mrs CA Anderson, three miles northwest of Aledo at 2 o'clock yesterday, April 30, 1924 by Rev Sidney A Guthrie of the First ME Church with a very large number of friends present, including a big delegation of Modern Woodmen and about fifty members of the Epworth League of the ME Church. Songs were sung by Mrs ST Ash and Mrs Harry C Dodson, with Miss Helen Ash at the piano.

Ralph was always of a sunny and cheerful disposition, easily making friends and retaining them. He graduated from the William and Vashti Business college, and with the exception of a year's employment in Aledo, he has always spent the rest of his time at home.
