Davenport, Lifelong Resident, Passed Away in His Sleep Last Wednesday, Phone 86 IARTIN fUOSS The thousands of motorists who are using DIXIE Gas, Motor Oils and Greasing Service are wise to the fact that they get 100% value for every dollar spent at a DIXIE Sation. There's more to DIXIE than a brand name. It means service from a group of the state's reliable independent oil merchants whose business reputations are pledged to the highest standards of quality and service. It means protection for your motor car investment, and greater driving pleasure. Use DIXIE Quality and DIXIE Service and your car will Run Better, Go Farther, Last Longer, and Cost Less to Operate, STAEBLER OIL COMPANY Orders may be left at Neumaier's Phone 272 LIBERTY THEATRE FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, APRIL 25th.

BOB STEELE in "Laughing at Death" Comedy-"PACE THAT THRILLS" -WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30th- "ARIZONA KID" l!el SERIAL "10 Episodes" Eagle of the ^|v,-; Death defying stunts and thrill Take advantage of opportunities—read / if The community was shocked last Wednesday to learn, of the sudden death of Beverly P. Davenport, president of the Citizens Bank. Mr. and Mrs Davenport, together with their son, Arthur L. Davenport, and wife of Detroit, sojourned in St. Petersburg-, Florida, the past winter, as has been their custom for several years. They started their trip homeward on Tuesday, April 15, planning a leisurely journey by automobile over a route not previously traveled by them. Driving about 135 miles to Ocala, Florida, on Tuesday he retired that night in apparent good health and excellent spirits. During the early morning hours of Wednesday he passed away peacefully without awakening. Funeral services were held on Saturday afternoon at the residence, conducted by Rev. -Simon Schofield. pastor of the M. E. church, and interment was in the family lot in Oakwood cemetery. Mr. Davenport was a lifelong resident of Saline, and was always prominently identified with local business and financial affairs as well as having extensive outside interests. His passing is a distinct loss to thn community. OBITUARY Beverly Parsons Davenport was born August 3, 1852 at Saline, Michigan, and died April lo, 1930 at Ocala, Florida, in his seventy-eighth year. He was one of the three children of William H. Davenport and Zilpha Parsons Davenport. He was united in marriage to Emily Brown Pope in October 1873. To this union was born one son, Archer, who passed on in early childhood. He is survived by the widow and his son by adoption, Arthur Li. Davenport, of Detroit, Michigan. He was one of ths two members of the first senior class graduating from the present high school. Early in life he became associated in business with his father. H-yjvas cashier of ths bank of W. H. Davenport & Son, bankers, of Saline, from its inception, in 1885, and occupied the same (position in the Citizens Bank of Saline when the private institution was incorporated as a State Bank in 1902. Upon the death of his father in 1909 he became president of the bank in which office he had since continued. As a young man he united with the Methodist Episcopal, church in Saline, and for many years he was f membsr of its board of trustees and active in its affairs. It was very largely through the instrum.entu.iity of Mr. Davenport and his father that the present fine edifice of this society was erected in 1899. He was a patron of various benevolences and charities without ostentation, ever mindful of the scriptural admonition "let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth." Cultured, modest, quiet, he was a banker of the old school in the best sense tEat the phrase implies, but of the new in that he kept abreast of the most advanced thought in his profession. But of all, he also was a gentleman of the old school, one whose habits and actions arose from right instincts rather than from. the decrees of social usage. He has gone on before us a little while. Some day we shall follow him and shall not be afraid to walk where he has walked. His paths were always the paths of honor. I Methodist Church Notes S. Schofield.

The Easter morning service at 6 o'clock, sponsored by the young people of the three churches, was inspiring indeed. The church auditorium/ was filled. The choir, consisting of four young people from each of the uniting churches, gave two excellent anthems. Mae Scroen, Richard Cramer, and Evelyn Ernst, led in prayer. Rev. C. H. Wittbracht read the scriptures concerning the resurrection of Jesus. The Theme of the morning was The Living Christ. The Living Christ in Religion was pre- , sented by Lorena Bernard. The Living Christ in Politics was discussed by Jack Arend. The Living Christ in .Industry was visualized by Rose Parsons. Rev. Dr. Kircher spoke briefly on The Living Christ and the New Crusade. The 10 o'clock service was equally helpful. Auditorium filled and extra chairs required to seat the people. The choir gave several Easter num- Prof. Nurnberger Talks To Rotarians Presented Picture of Modern Day School Problems and Their Solution. A splendid attendance marked th6 meeting of the Rotary Club at The Tavern last Thursday, and a fine pre gram featured the day. In respect to the approach of Eas ter, E. F. Henne favored the gath- ing with a wonderful Rendition o.' "The Holy City," with Mrs. Merrit Martin at the piano. Edward never was in better voice and all thoroughly enjoyed the selection. This was Tom Nurnberger's day tc give a vocational talk, and he responded nobly. He briefly traced the beginnings ot education in thisi country, from the early days when it was the product of the church down to the present system we enjoy. The first definite law regarding education was passed in Massachusetts in 1642-47, requiring towns to maintain schools' for the young. Mr. Nurnberger interspersed his remarks) by a couple of very apt stories which created quite a little merriment, in contrasting what a lot of people imagine is required of a superintendent and what is actually required of him. He brought out very forcibly the importance of the job of being at the head of a modern school, with its multifarious duties and exacting responsibilities; its importance to society, selection' and supervision of teachers, economical administration of affairs, etc. The course of preparation for a su- perintendcy in this day and age requires many years of close application to study, which is at once expensive, and a teacher is worthy of his hire. To insure a competent staff at once interested to the fullest extent in the welfare of pupil and public, great care is necessary in selection] and once secured good teachers and executives should be kept in one institution as long as possible .and appreciated recognition given in period Used Tractors at Parsons &.

PAUL'S CHOIR SINGS TO A CROWDED HOUSE, A congregation that taxed the capacity of the St. Paul's church greeted the choir of that church on Sunday evening. . We came to hear the Easter Cantata, "Life Eternal," by Fred B. Hol- ton, given by the vested choir. We came with great expectations and we were not disappointed. Eighteen voices, under the direction of George Schmid, Jr., sang in excellent voice and with expression and feeling in keeping with the great theme of the. cantata. To attempt individual praise is in vain for none can be excluded. The; appreciation of the people was fittingly texpressed by Rev. Wittbracht in, his remarks and expression of thanks ; to the choir and director at the close ( of the service. ) The people of Saline ought to fully appreciate the opportunity afforded, them in such musical programs and i talent as was presented Sunday evening. * j, The other churches of the town ap-! predated the courtesy of Rev. Witt- ; bracht in inviting them to join in' this service. They were happy to j do so. ' I THE WILLING WORKERS , The club met with Mrs. Mary Mc- •Mann and daughter, Miss Ella, April 17 for an afternoon meeting, with 36 in attendance despite the inclement weather. The president, Mrs. Hallie Mehler, opened the meeting by reading the 15th chapter of St. Mark. A song by the club, "Oh! Thou Almighty King," was Sung, and then followed the business session. Roll call was answered by naming some illustrious person and relating something about their lives. A son, "Living for Jesus," -was sung by the Mesdames Craig, accompanied on the piano by Mrs. Helen Craig Pierce. The program was short but very interesting. A reading by Mrs. Agnes Osborne, "The Two Clocks;" a playlet, "Howj the Story Grew," was very amusing. The Mesdames Hammond, Hanson Gordon and Gilbert took the parts-. After that a very social time was had, followed by a delicious supper served by the hostesses. The next meeting will be held at the home of Mrs. Mattie Craig, May 15. Roll call, something about the month of May, its flowers, its birds, or if the birth month of some person of note, or some May happening in your own life, thus giving a wide scope so that no one need simply answer present.
