Mass Is Sung For S. Ferris

Requiem high mass was sung for S. Ferris, Austin merchant, at St. Mary's Cathedral at 10 a.m. Monday, with the Rev. Joseph McAllister officiating. The Most Rev. L. J. Reicher, bishop of Austin, participated in the last rites, giving absolution.

The Rev. James Gibbons served as deacon and the Rev. Frank Weber as sub-deacon.

The church was filled to capacity with persons of many races and creeds. Among them was a sprinkling of nuns.

The family and relatives marched in a body down the long aisle following the casket as it was wheeled to a position before the altar.

After the mass, Father McAllister delivered a farewell address over the remains.

Pallbearers were John A. Peninger, Herman P. Becker, James P. Nash, Ralph Schneider, Fred Joseph, Dennis Macken, S. Jack Balagia and Charles Balagia. Burial was in Mount Calvary Cemetery. Rosary services were held at the Cook Funeral Home Sunday night.
