FOULKE FUNERAL

Funeral services for Arthur (Pete) Foulke of Arcadia, who committed suicide Wednesday evening at his home, will be conducted privately Saturday afternoon at 2:00 at the home. Rev. R. L Logan will conduct the services, after which burial will be in the Scherer cemetery southwest of Arcadia.
Prior to the services, the body will lie in state at the home, and friends may call there any time prior to 2:00 o'clock Saturday.
Arthur Foulke was born February 17, 1894 near Bakers Corner, the son of George and Mary Francis (Underwood) Foulke. On April 17, 1920, he was united in marriage to Inez Iva Everman of Russellville.
Soon after their marriage, the couple settled in Arcadia where Mr Foulke and Elmer Long started the Foulke & Long garage which they have operated since that time.
Surviving besides the grieved widow are one daughter, Helen Foulke, age 12; his mother, Mrs George Foulke; three sisters, Mrs Alice Phillips of Sheridan and Mrs Grace Robbins and Mrs Sarah Ross of Bakers Corner; and one brother, Alvin Foulke of Cicero.
Mr. Foulke was a member of he Masonic lodge, the West Grove Friends church, and the Arcadia Lions club. Tuesday evening, the deceased was elected the office of the Lions club, his many friends little dreaming at that time that he was so soon to leave their midst.
The entire town of Arcadia was shocked to hear of Mr Foulke's rash act, and all were much grieved, as he was a man beloved by all who knew him.
