Sunday, April 28th, were held from the Methodist Church Monday after- noon. The services were con- ducted by the Rev. George C. Hardy, pastor of the church, as- sisted by Rev. J. L. Brantley, Baptist pastor. Interment took place in the Malakoff Cemetery with arrangements in the hands of the Ballard Funeral Home. Mrs, Griffin, whose maiden name was Martha Leuvenia Tid- more, was born in Hale County, Alabama, October 26, 1864, She became the wife of D. F. Griffin November 28, 1880. In the year 1890 they moved to Smith Coun- ty, Texas, and later in the year 1900, they moved to Malakoff, where the family have since re- sided. The deceased was the mother of 13 children, eight of whom, with the husband and father, are to mourn her passing. The children now living are as fol. lows: Mrs. J. N. Jones and Mrs Alice Buceer of Dallas; Mrs Lena Wilcox, Hollis, Oklahoma; D. T. Griffin, Athens; R. T. Griffin, Corsicans; W. A. Griffin. Dallas; R. M. Griffin, Ft. Worth; and Robert Griffin of this city. She is also survived b y 34 grand- children and 9 great-grand.chil- dren. Mrs. Griffin, according to her loved ones, accepted Christ when at the age of 15 years and united with t h e Methodist Church. Throughout her long and useful life, she lived for her Master. She was always quiet and unas- suming and never complaining, a devoted wife and an old fashion- ed mother in the best and high est senseof the word. In the community, as well as in the family circle, she leaves a place that can never be filled, and she will be sorely missed by her friends and neighbors who have learned to love her down through the years.

Athens Rural Carrier Retires After 30 Years )letion without further delay. The huge building, situated on the south end of the athletic field was started something over a year ago but the work was stop- ped when the State withdrew the funds which they had for- merly agreed to furnish the pro- ject in labor supplied from the Relief Rolls. Owing to the shortage in the supply of skilled labor now avail- able from the relief rolls, it is expected that the completion of the building will be of a slow pro. cess. The State, aware of the unfavorable comment that the partly built structure, situated so prominently on Highway 31, has caused, are now determined that the building must be completed and as rapidly as possible. The gymnasium, when com- pleted, will be a valuable addition to the school plant and a great asset to the community at large.
