Lloyd Lincoln Stahl, football star at Washburn College at the turn of the century and son of a prominent Kansas Pioneer and prohibition leader, died Tuesday at his farm near Burlingame. He was 85. Death was attributed to a heart attack. Stahl was born June 16, 1876, in Auburn and was graduated from Washburn College in 1900. He captained Washburn football teams for three seasons and is listed in the school's athletic hall of fame. Following graduation, he coached football at a now defunct college in Kingfisher, Okla., and taught school at Auburn. He remained in Auburn until 1923 when he moved to Burlingame. He was a veteran of the Spanish-American War and a member of the Auburn Masonic Lodge and the Fairplain Grange. His father, F M Stahl, drove cattle over the Santa Fe Trail and prospected for gold on Colorado. He became chief of police in Topeka in 1899 and was a leader in the state's temperance movement. A son, John Stahl, was a navy pilot during World War II and was killed while on duty aboard the aircraft carrier USS Wasp. He is survived by his wife Allie; a daughter Lillabelle; two sisters, Eva and Mary; a twin brother Lewis and another brother Leon.
