Funeral services will be held this afternoon at two at the Orland First Lutheran church for Arthur Askeland, resident of Orland for the past 41 years. Askeland died at his home northwest of Orland, where he had lived since coming to Orland, Friday after an illness extending many months.

Askeland was active in many civic affairs, being the first president of the Orland Junior Chamber of Commerce formed in the twenties; active member of the Orland Golf Club and one of the founders of the Orland Miniature Golf Course in Orland in the late twenties. He was one of the leaders in the Orland Boosters Club during the thirties.
