HANS HANSON PASSES AWAY
Death has removed from our midst
another member of Our Savior’s Lu-
theran Church of Norse, Mr. Hans
Hanson of the Harmony community.
He was born on Sept. 13, 1859, and
died Oct 18, 1928, being therefore, at
the time of his death, 69 years, 1
month and 5 days old.
Born in Denmark of Rasmus and
Kathrine Hanson, he was baptized and
confirmed into the Lutheran church
while still in that country, coming to
this country with his parents when he
was seventeen years of age. They
settled in Limestone county.
He was,united in marriage with
Miss Berthe Knudson of Norway, on
Dec. 13, 1891, Rev. Rystad perform-
ing the ceremony at the Norse church.
To this union were bom 3 children, 2
of whom died in infancy, leaving only
one son, H. Bernhard ^nson to join
the widow in mourning his loss.
There was no church at Limestone.
Mr. Hanson was a devout Christian,
and he could not be satisfied to live in
a place where there was no church.
It was therefore natural that in 1902
he moved with his family to
county, settling in the Harmony com-
munity on the farm which had since
been his home.
One brother preceded him in death,
and one, R. P. Hanson of Thornton,
Texas, survives him. Although 81
years of age he was able to be pres-
ent at the funeral services.
There are also two grandsons to
mourn his passing.
He had been sick for about 15
months, though not confined to his
bed. His eyes were affected by some
internal disease of the hesd or brain,
and although everything possible was
done for him, specialists consulted
said there was no hope. He himself
seemed to realise more than others
did how near his end was. He expect-
ed it and welcomed it. Death was
caused by apoplexy. He had felt well
all day, and had even been out in the
field picking cotton. At about five
o'clock in the afternoon he was
stricken and lived until about nine-
thirty that night.
Funeral services were conducted st
the home and at the Norse Lutheran
church by his pastor, Rev. JE. R. Lar-
son, and interment was nude in tha
church cemetery at Norn,
A faithful church member, a lib-
eral giver, a fruitful tree for both
church and stote, his passing will be
felt keenly ip many quarters, but we
cannot but hope and feel that our loss
is his incalculable gain, and this is
our comfort. v

It Is Our Desire To Serve The Public
CATS 6, WEATHERFORD 14
The Cats lost their first conference
game of the .season, to the heavy
Weatherford team, on the local field
last Friday, only after a spirited fight.
The Coyotes, last year’s conference
champions, and doped to win by a
large score, were unable to penetrate
the Cats’ defense for a counter dur-
ing the first two periods. The first
score of the game was made by the
Coyotes in the early part of the third
quarter by the aerial route. They
were able to add another in the last
period on an end-run play.
The Cat line, though outweighed
more than they have been at any time
this year, were not outplayed. The
visitors boasted a forward wall aver-
aging wfll over two hundred pounds,
but the Cat linesmen were able to
this sift threRgh to block three Coyote
punts. Hutcherson, Clifton right
tackle, alro went through the Aim in
the last quarter to recover a fumble
and carry it over the enemy line for
his team’s only score of the game and
for Mr. Baldridge’s $5.00 prise for the
Lloyd Lane, rangy Clifton center,
was playing up to his usual form,
and caused the opposition endless
worry. He was able to muddle the
Coyote offense time after time.
"Curley” Jenson, Cat left tackle,
showed the boys how to smother the
Offensively the game was a punting
duel between Rachuig, for Clifton, and
Yarbrough, for the Coyotes, with
Rachuig holding a distinct advantage.
The Cats’ best bid for a score came
early in the first quarter when a pass
—Rachuig to Compton—wu incom-
plete in the end zone. Rachuig’s punt-
ing, much of it under fire, held the
champions in the shadow of their goal
much of the time. The winners’ offense
consisted mainly of end-rums and
passes. Harrison, 240 pound fullback,
did most of the ground gaining for
Weatherford, and led the attack in
the two successful drives for Scores
iq the last two periods, going thru
tackle for the second touchdown. The
visitors were again threatening to
score when the final whistle sounded.
