Assistant Attorney General Will Be Buried at Home City

Heart Disease Proves Fatal to Southeast Missouri Democrat

The body of Carl C. Abington, 44, an Assistant Attorney General of Missouri who dropped dead in the Supreme Court building here last night, was taken to Poplar Bluff, his former home, this afternoon for funeral services to be held there Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Burial will be there.

Abington's death occurred late last night following a heart attack while he was conferring with other members of the attorney general's staff. Physicians said death was due to the heart attack. Although Abington had not complained of feeling ill friends said he had been subject to heart attacks.

the conference which Abington was attending had followed a dinner with Wilbur Buford, another assistant attorney general who was recently appointed State Game and Fish Commissioner by Governor Park. Abington remarked at the dinner 'he had never felt better.' The night conference was a continuation of one started earlier in the day to which all members of the Attorney General's staff had attended.

Abington was one of the first assistants selected by Attorney General Roy McKittrick, who took office in January. He had long been active in Democratic politics in Southeast, Missouri and had been mentioned prominently for United States Attorney for the eastern district of Missouri.

Survivors include his widow and two children, four brothers, E.L. Abington and Jack Abington of Poplar Bluff, George Abington of Neelyville and Thomas Abington of Foristell, and a sister, Mrs. Neva Lazalier of Neelyville.

The body was accompanied to Poplar Bluff by the widow and E.L. Abington.
