He had beer in failing health since 1927 wher a paraltic stroke, from which ht never fully recovered, forced him co retire from his bank position. Funeral services were held from the family home at 1:30 Wednes- day afternoon conducted by the Rev. L. L. Edgar, pastor of the Methodist church. Interment, in charge of J. A. Batlard, loca, funeral director, took place in the Malakoff cemetery. Martin Eastwold was born ot Norwegian parentage on Novem- ber 17, 1862 in the city of Sta- ranger, Norway. At the age o) 18, he migrated with his parenb to America and settled in town of Frankston, Texas. H, later lived in the towns of Brown.- ooro, Prairieville and Mabank. In the year of 1909 he move to Malakoff from Mabank ano accepted the position as cashier of the newly organized First State Bank. He continued it, this position until becoming inca- pacitated by reason of bad health some five years ago. He was twice married, first to Miss So- phia Nutson, who died shortb thereafter, In 1912 he was unit- ed in marriage to Mrs. Eppie Mitcham of Malakoff and to this union one child was born, Mar- tin, Jr. He was christened in Lutheran church in 1900 and throughout all the years that fol- lowed, he lived a faithful con- dstant christian life. Besides Mrs. Eastwold and Iartin, Jr., the deceased is sur- vived by one brother, Enock Eastwold of El Campo. Local Ball Players Expect Successful Season With 0il Co. Word has been received this week from Grady Derden and Bob Roberts, local ball players, who are in their second season with the Hunt Production Com- pany team in the East Texas oil fields. The boys completed a most successful season with this club last year and the early sea- son ames this year indicate an equally successful season for 1933. The Hunt Company team, thus far, has played four games with clubs in the newly organized Dix ie League, winning two from Henderson and Longview and losing two to Henderson and Ty ler. Grady is playing right-field and Bob is holding down the second base position. Rink Tacky Party Proyes Big Success The Tacky Party, which was sponsored at the Mills' Roller Rink here on Tuesday evening was declared, by the manage- ment to be a huge success, and Mr. Mills expresses appreciation for the splendid co-operation ac. corded him by Malakoff people. The skating floor was crowded almost to capacity, and the at- tire and the comic demonstra- tions of the skaters, furnished an abundance of entertainment for the large crowds that packed the spectator's stands. In the contests, Mrs. R. H. The Methodist Church is Torn Away After Twenty Seven Years The o 1 d Methodist Church )ui!ding whose majestic tower aas stood as a religious sentinal the end of Mitcham Street incethe summer of 1906, has oeen torn away and thus anoth- er landmark in the Lignite City oasses out of existence. The old 0uilding has faithfully served community for twenty-seven years, and even though a new finer structure may take its olace, the citizenship can not but eel regret[ul of its passing. Although a new church build- mg has been the ambition of the ,nembership for some time, the emoval bf the old building was aastened by reason of the wind storm o f last Tuesday night hicll wrecked the structure and rendered it unfit for continued Jse. The condition of the build- mg was such that another heavy md would have completely de- stroyed much good material, that Js to be used in the new church it was therefore considered advisable to salvage the good umber as quickly as possible. Volunteer workmen, under the readership of the pastor, Rev. E L. Edgar, started work early stonday morning and in a very short time structure was completely torn away. Consid- erable time, however, will consumed later in removing the nails and stacking the lumber to await the beginning of the new uilding. During the days the men were tearing down t h e building, the ladies of the church served them lunch in the vacant Hawn Lumber Company build- ,lag. It is understood that a new church building, at the same location, will be placed under construction an an early date, but as yet no definite plans have been decided upon. In the mean time the regular Sunday School and church services will be held in the Hawn Lumber Company building. Corsicana Baby In. jured in Wreck Here Little Hortense, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. L.
