 SPEED DEMON WITH DEATH AT
WHEEL SNUFFS OUT 108 LIVES
IN COUNTY DURING PAST YEAR

________

TERRIBLE TOLL
TAKEN IN 1936
TRAFFIC RACE

_______

OFFICIALS DETERMINED TO
CUT DOWN RECKLESS
DRIVING

     Hundreds of them bereaved by the loss of relatives or friends, all of them shocked, Dallas County Motorists Friday contemplated a departed year in which 108 lives were needlessly taken in traffic accidents, then resolved to drive more sanely and safely in 1937.
     No section of the city or county escaped a fatal crash. And, few homes escaped sorrow and suffering on the part of some members of the household because of injuries sustained by kinsmen or dear friends. No respecter of persons, the law of average reached into the homes of the rich and poor, black and white alike and singled out the victims of the thousands of accidents which occurred during the year just closed.
     The total for 1936 was four less than in 1935. The figure may be increased, because of those who may succumb yet of injuries incurred in 1936 would be added to that year's list of victims. But, in this fact, the loved ones of those killed found no solace.
     In the city limits of Dallas alone, there were forty-four deaths and 1,361 persons injured in the 5,055 accidents which occurred. In 1935, there were fifty deaths, 1,495 injury cases and 4,156 accidents. The increase in accidents during 1936 is attributable to congestion resulting from the Centennial.
     Below are listed the names of those whose lives were sacrificed to speed, carelessness and inconsideration of others. Space would not permit the listing of even those who were crippled for life in crashes.

     Several times during his career, he served in public offices, at one time being assistant superintendent of state demonstration farms for the Oklahoma state board of agriculture and at another time, publicity director for the United States treasury department in the eleventh Federal Reserve district.

Native of Indiana.
     Brown was born at New Castle, Ind., on July 2, 1881. He was a graduate of the University of Kansas and Washburn College, Topeka, Kan., where he received a degree as bachelor of laws. He practiced law in Kansas and Oklahoma for five years prior to 1911, when he entered newspaper work.
     Surviving Mr. Brown are his mother, Mrs. Emma C. Brown; two sons, Chauncey C., Jr., and William Jackley Brown, all of Dallas; and a sister, Mrs. W. W. Winnie, Milford, Mich.
     Funeral arrangements, which are to be made by the Poole Funeral Home, were being delayed Friday, pending arrival of Mrs. Winnie.

THREE BURNED
FATALLY HERE

________

NEGRO WOMAN AND GRAND-
CHILDREN VICTIMS OF
CLIFF FIRE

     A Negress and her two small grandchildren were burned to death Tuesday shortly before noon in a fire which destroyed the one-story frame residence at 1212 Boswell Street, east of Oak Cliff near the Cliff cemetery.
     The dead are Lavonia Mayfield, 69; Gloria Jean Bell, 2, and Alma Marie Bell, 15 months.
     The fire is believed to have been started from a wood stove. The woman, when firemen entered the house, was seated in a chair with the smaller child in her lap. The other child was found on a bed.
     The woman, according to information given Sergeant Louis Spencer, who investigated, was paralyzed, and this is believed to be the reason why she could not aid the children and herself.
     Parents of the children, J. W. Bell and his wife, Ruby, were absent from the house at the time.

HOUSE BURNS,
LUMBER MAN
DIES IN FIRE

_______

BODY OF WALTER B. KELSAY
BURNED BEYOND RECOG-
NITION

     Asleep alone in his home, Walter Bruce Kelsay, 50, well known Dallas lumber man, was burned to death when the five-room frame cottage at 114 N. Travis Street, Arcadia Park, caught fire at 3:30 a. m. Saturday.
     A newspaper route carrier, W. A. Dehmanhorst, discovered the fire while making his rounds. He ran upon the porch and pounded on the door, but heat from the flames drove him back. He ran to a nearby house and called the sheriff's office, which, in turn, summoned the fire department.
     The house was a complete loss. Kelsay's body, burned beyond recognition, was found in the ruins.
     Mr. Kelsay had been out of the city and was expected to return to Dallas Saturday. He apparently came home unexpectedly Friday evening. His wife, not expecting him to return until Saturday, was spending the night away from home. Notified of his death, she was stricken with grief.
     Origin of the fire was not determined. Whipped by an early morning breeze, the fire swiftly destroyed the house and burned the garage and Kelsay's car that was parked in it.
     Kelsay's body was taken in charge by Rene Cox Funeral Home. Funeral services were to be held at 4 p. m. Saturday, with burial in Laurel Park. Dr. Leo Johnson was scheduled to have charge of the services.
     Mr. Kelsay is survived by his wife, one sister, Mrs. Myrta Thompson, Pampa, Tex., and two brothers, Bert Kelsay of Dallas and Guy Kelsay of Pampa.

TWO KILLED
IN TRAFFIC

_______

PEDESTRIANS ARE VICTIMS OF
AUTOS ON DALLAS
STREETS

     The death toll of Dallas County went to twenty Friday night, when two pedestrians died at Parkland Hospital.
     The dead were H. A. Jacoby, 59, of 3714 Race Street, and Jasper Wood, 93, Negro, who lived at the rear of 3937 Cole Avenue.
     Jacoby died as the result of injuries sustained when he stepped from behind a street car in the 1400 block of Elm Street, Tuesday afternoon, and into the path of a car driven by H. L. Dunn, 22, of 1508 Sullivan Drive. Wood received fatal injuries Friday night when he walked into a moving car on Cole Avenue, almost in front of his home.
     Two other pedestrians were injured Friday night and both of them taken to Parkland for treatment. They were Mrs. O. E. Bell, 47, of Garland, who stepped in front of a car on Ervay Street, near St. Louis, and Home Dan Hall, 8, of 5102 Vanderbilt, who was struck by a cab at Cole Avenue and Knox Street. Both victims sustained head injuries.
     Police said Saturday that their drive against jaywalking will be intensified, pointing out that nine of the ten traffic deaths of the year within the city limits have been pedestrians.

EMANUEL MAYER

Crippled Children and Blind Folk
Mourn Loss of Good Friend When
Death Claims "Uncle Buddie" Mayer

_______

Funeral Services to Be
Held Sunday for Worker
Among Underprivileged

     "Uncle Buddie" is dead.
     His funeral will be held Sunday afternoon at 3. Burial will be in Temple Emanu-El Cemetery.
     Should you go there, you will undoubtedly see many a blind person with tears in sightless eyes.
     You will see children on crutches, with legs or arms in plaster casts. Some other young people, no longer children, will be there, walking with the aid of stout canes. Still others may not be u sing canes, but if you will notice, they may get about with a scarcely noticeable limp.
     All these are "Buddie" Mayer's friends.
     Death robbed them of his friendship when Emanuel Mayer, 67, died Friday night in his apartment at the Sanger Hotel. For nearly fifteen years, he had devoted himself to work among the crippled child patients at the Scottish Rite Hospital, and as a member of the state commission for the blind, among those who know not the brightness of the sun, nor the beauty of spring's colors.
     He was personally acquainted with every patient who has entered the Masonic institution since its establishment. Only last Friday night, he took four young women, former patients now grown up and gainfully employed, to an entertainment at the Scottish Rite Temple.
     It is these -- with the newcomers now under treatment, who will most miss "Buddie" Mayer's sympathy and companionship.
     A native of Henderson, Mr. Mayer was in business at Mineola for years with I. G. Bromberg. He retired in 1924, coming to Dallas. A Mason, he was also a member of the Scottish Rite bodies and of Hella Shrine Temple.
     Three sisters, Misses Julia and Ida Mayer and Mrs. I. J. Bromberg, survive. There also are two nieces, Miss Nina Bromberg and Mrs. Effie Joseph, all of Dallas. Nephews are Henri L. Louie and Alfred Bromberg, Dallas, and Henry M. Silverman of Marlin.
     Dr. David Lefkowitz of Temple Emanu-El, of which Mr. Mayer was a member, will conduct Sunday's service at Weiland's chapel, followed by the burial in Temple Emanu-El Cemetery.
     Active pallbearers will be Wylie B. Sims, Henri L. Bromberg, Jr., Malcolm H. Landers, Simon Zene, Claude C. O'Neal, A. D. Beaird, Ed Byer and Richard Joseph. Honorary pallbearers are: I. Rosenbaum, Dr. William B. Carrell, Dr. A. J. Schwenkenberg, J. J. Brown, Galveston; James A. Boddecher, Galveston; C. E. Revelle, Mineola; B. Wadel, Tyler; S. A. Silverman, Marlin; Irving M. Griffin, Houston; P. E. Wallace, Mount Pleasant; M. S.[?] Mayer, El Paso; Will Gilham, Jacksonville; Dr. O. M. Marchman and Dr. H. A. O'Brian.

POLICE TO INITIATE
INTENSIVE DRIVE ON
DALLAS JAYWALKERS

     An intensive police drive against jaywalking will be inaugurated Monday, police officials declared Saturday night as they pointed out the significant fact that nine of the ten traffic deaths recorded here since Jan. 1 are claimed to have been due to pedestrian carelessness.
     "We are going to intensify our educational work, and at the same time, bear down on pedestrians who violate traffic rules laid down for their own safety," Chief of Police R. L. Jones declared. "It seems that more educational work is necessary, although we have done almost everything possible to bring to pedestrians and motorists alike, the fact that they are risking their lives when they try to save a minute in traffic."
     The deaths of two traffic victims, both pedestrians, at Parkland Hospital Friday night, had much to do with the decision to "turn on the pressure," as far as jaywalking is concerned. The victims were H. A. Jacoby, 59, who died of injuries received Tuesday, and Jasper Wood, 93-year-old Negro, who lived only two hours after being struck by a car Friday night.
     First traffic death, and the only one in which an autoist has been killed, occurred on Jan. 3, when J. B. Eldridge, 37, of Greenville, received fatal injuries in a crash at East Grand and Fitzhugh Avenues.
The others, in order, have been: R. L. Grant, 66, of 2121 Wall Street, who was struck by a car at Corinth and Wall Streets on Jan. 9 and died Jan. 16; Mrs. Ora Anne Ginch, 37, of 4610 Sylvester Street, killed instantly when struck by a car Jan. 20 in the 4500 block of Maple Avenue; Harry Brown, 73, of 3205 Forest Avenue, fatally injured when struck by a car at Forest Avenue and Trunk Street on Feb. 12; Refujis Zambrano, 35, of Fort Worth, killed by a car on Feb. 13 at Cedar Springs Road and Caroline Street; Charles T. Carlton, 60, of 2704 McKinney Avenue, who was struck by a car on Jan. 10 as he walked across the intersection of Elm and Lamar Streets against a red light, and died Feb. 19; Lloyd Patterson, 37, of Mesquite, struck by a car at Second Avenue and Carpenter Street on Feb. 28; and William C. Ayres, 65, of 229 North Patton Street, almost instantly killed Wednesday night when struck by a car in the 400 block of East Jefferson Street.
     "Such a death toll is unnecessary--inexcusable, in fact -- in a city like Dallas," Chief Jones declared. "A glance at the list reveals the fact that five of the victims were 60 years old or older. All but one of them were violating traffic ordinances when killed or fatally injured.
     I have ordered all officers, whether on patrol duty or working in squad cars, to issue arrest tickets whenever they see a pedestrian violating the jaywalking law or going against a red light."

HUSBAND NOT
SORRY WIFE'S
FRIEND DIES

_______

JOHN WILLIAMSON SUCCUMBS
IN HOSPITAL FROM SHOT-
GUN CHARGE

     R. B. Mealer, 56, produce dealer, was formally charged with murder Saturday, after the death at Parkland Hospital of John Williamson, 67-year-old carpenter, fatally wounded by a shotgun charge fired through a window in the room of defendant's estranged wife at 1916 Corinth Street.
     Saturday, after Williamson had died, Mrs. Mealer visited her accused husband in the county jail. She refused to say whether she intended to effect a reconciliation and stand by her husband in his trouble. Previously, she had said her husband had no right to shoot Williamson, whom, she said, had come to her home to have dinner. He had been a long-time friend of the family, she said.
     The murder charge against Mealer was filed in Justice of the Peace Walter J. Stovall's court by Detective J. T. Luther. There had been no effort to make bond. Neither Mrs. Mealer, nor her husband, would talk to reporters, who found them talking together in the county jail Saturday afternoon.

"Broke Up Home."
     Mealer told police when he surrendered, that the man he shot had broken up his home. The fatal shot was fired through a window after a hole had been punched through the screen. Mealer told police he saw his wife through the window, combing Williamson's hair and patting him on the cheek.
     Mealer showed no emotion when told that Williamson had died.
     "I'm not sorry," Mealer told his informant, "and, I think that any other real man would have done the same thing and would feel the same way about it."
     Williamson died at 1 p. m. Saturday, after hovering for three days on the verge of death, expected by hospital attendants to die at any moment. His left eye was shot completely away by the blast, which Mealer fired from a .410 shotgun, and doctors said that had he lived, he would have lost the sight of his right eye.
     A formal charge of murder against Mealer was filed Saturday afternoon by District Attorney Andrew Patton in Justice of the Peace Walter J. Stovall's court. Mealer remained in the county jail, no bond having been allowed.
     Mrs. Mealer, from whom Mealer had been separated ten days before the fatal shooting, went to see her husband during the afternoon, contrary to her statement that she never wished to see him again and her refusal to go to the jail while Williamson lived. She stayed at the man's bedside almost continually, despite the fact that he did not regain consciousness after the shooting.

Asked About Wife.
     Since the shooting, Mealer frequently asked the jail attendants what they thought his wife would think of him, and if they believed that she would take him back if he "got out of it."
     Saturday, however, he said that he did not want to be taken back.
     "I'll take whatever comes like a man," he declared. "No, I don't want her back."

Old Days in City
Recalled as Aged
Negro Car Victim

     The death of Joshua Wood, 93-year-old Negro, who was struck and killed by an automobile, Saturday, brought recollections to last century happenings to many Dallasites who knew the old "darkie" back in the seventies and eighties.
     Clyde Taber, veteran pressman on The Times Herald, recalled that Wood worked for his father, Simpson Taber, in 1885, when Taber Brothers Jewelry Store was operated at Main and Murphy Streets. The Negro did porter chores at the jewelry store.
     Mr. Taber attested to the Negro's age, revealing that Wood had worked back in slavery days for the Hearne family at Hearne, Tex. Other Dallas families, including the Hagans, and Gannons, once employed Joshua, Mr. Taber said.

OFFICERS SEEK
MURDER CLUES;
MAN IDENTIFIED

_______

BODY OF J. C. RILEY AT UN-
DERTAKER'S PENDING
FUNERAL PLANS

     Detectives and sheriff's deputies, Monday, were still working on several slender clues, hopeful of apprehending the slayer of a white man, identified as J. C. Riley, who was found beaten to death near the Santa Fe and H. & T. C. crossing on East Grand Saturday afternoon.
     The body was being held by Weever Funeral Home while efforts were made to communicate with relatives. Justice of the Peace Walter J. Stovall rendered a coroner's verdict of murder by an unknown person. A blood-stained trestle bolt, evidently the death weapon, was found beside the body, which lay sprawled in the weeds near a campfire.
     Identification was established by Russell Anderson and others connected with the Centennial last year. They said Riley drove an ox team in Cavalcade during the Centennial presentation of that show.
     A Negro who found the body, made a written statement at the sheriff's office. He was not held in custody. Chief Deputy Bill Decker said he learned that Riley recently returned to Dallas after making a trip to New York with a rodeo following the Centennial.

RIDER KILLED

______

JOHN LANGLEY DIES WHEN
TRUCK TURNS OVER AND
CRUSHES HIM

     John Langley, 24, of Hurst, Tarrant County, was killed Tuesday afternoon when the truck in which he was a passenger, overturned on a curve of the Coppell Road, one-half mile west of Midway Road, near Addison. Kenneth Hurst, 23, also of Hurst, driver of the truck, was uninjured.
     Hurst told investigating Deputies Sheriff William Binford and John Rowland that Langley leaned from the cab of the truck to watch some men unloading gravel at the roadside as they rounded the curve, and that Langley grasped the steering wheel for support.
     The truck veered from the road, Hurst said, and the driver yelled at Langley, who attempted to turn the machine back into the road suddenly. That manipulation overturned the truck.
     The cab and windshield pinned Langley by his neck to the ground, but Hurst was uninjured.
     A Fort Worth funeral home took charge of the body, after Fred Tucker, near whose home the wreck took place, aided Hurst.

Detectives Strive to Untangle Maze of
Clues and Contradictions to Solve Assas-
sination of Wealthy Aged Recluse

     Entangled in a maze of clues and contradictions, detectives worked with grim determination Saturday to find the killer of Mrs. Mary Knox, 91, who was slugged to death early Friday at her home at 5746 Mercedes Avenue.
     Mrs. Knox's body was found in the parlor of her home, her head crushed by terrific blows from a lead pipe or similar instrument. The house had been methodically searched, although $11,000 worth of government bonds were either overlooked or spurned by the killer. A money belt, which the aged recluse always wore about her waist, had been taken. How much it contained was not known.
     A possible lead to the killer was offered by Joe Minton of 3204 Live Oak, Street, the last known person to live in the house with Mrs. Knox. As a roomer at the house, Minton became very friendly with the dead woman and was taken into her confidence.

Mysterious Letter.
     Sixty to ninety days ago, he told officers, Mrs. Knox received a letter from a grandson which, if it can be found, will furnish a positive clue to the killer. The letter was mailed out of town, he said, but he could not remember where it came from.
     Mrs. Knox was killed when she answered a rap on the door, evidently while preparing breakfast. A cup of coffee had been poured, but was not drunk and cooked eggs were on the kitchen stove.
     The killer either struck Mrs. Knox as she opened the front door, or as she tried to get out of the door, officers said. Blood on the floor and the position of the body indicated that she swung the door open as if to admit someone she knew, and was struck down where she stood. Her clothes were distributed as though the killer knew exactly where to look for the money belt, and an apron which she was wearing was pulled tightly about her neck. Blood on her hands indicated that she tried vainly to ward off the blow.
     Mrs. Knox feared the violent death which found her Friday, and which already had taken two other members of her family, according to friends. Several times in conversation during the last few years, she mentioned "something happening," according to neighbors, and usually kept a window or door open, so that she could flee "if anything ever happens."
     In 1914, her husband, William H. Knox, died at Houston. Seven years later, her son, Hiram Knox, was killed at his home at Hempstead, Tex. He was shot to death. A few years later, her grandson was fatally stabbed near Livingston, Tex.

Several Angles Investigated.
     Police were working Saturday on a number of angles, any one of which may produce the killer, according to Inspector of Detectives Will Fritz.
     One of these angles was the presence in the neighborhood a few weeks ago, of prowlers, police investigation at that time showing that a large man had stepped in flower beds and on open ground in several yards close to Mrs. Knox's home.
     The prowler theory was not favored by police, however, as Mrs. Knox was very averse to letting anyone enter her house, and never opened the door to tramps or beggars.
     Family trouble growing out of the death of her son at Hempstead, also has been injected into the investigation.
     Mrs. Knox reputedly had given away most of the $1,000,000 estate which was left by her husband. She gave freely to several churches, and was one of the heaviest donors to the Reynolds' Institution. Owner of some thirty pieces of rent property throughout the city, she is believed to have lived off the income from them.

Was Not Strangled.
     An autopsy late Saturday morning revealed the fact that Mrs. Knox was not strangled, as was at first believed, but was struck eleven times on the head. Three of the wounds were so severe, that any one of them would probably have killed her, investigators said.
     This new development led to the belief that she was attacked in the rear of the house, probably at the back door, and ran to the front in a vain attempt to escape from her attacker. Unable to open the front door, the key to which was found by police in the kitchen sink, she was struck down in one final attack by the killer, according to the revamped theory.
     Literally dozens of fingerprints were found in the house, but a check had not been carried sufficiently far Saturday to denote whether they belonged to visitors, Mrs. Knox, the killer or curious spectators at the scene of the crime. All prints were guarded as carefully as possible immediately after the body was found, and Inspector Fritz expressed the hope that they might help solve the case.
     The body was found by neighbors who noticed that Mrs. Knox had not raised the shades at any time during the day. Fearing that she was sick, Mrs. Hugo Boedeker, 5802 Mercedes, tried to get into the house and could not. She returned to her home and called Mrs. Frank Rutherford, 928 South Haskell Street, who came to the house and sent her nephew, Charlie Steger, in through a window.
     Mr. and Mrs. Knox came to Dallas about the beginning of the century from Wausau, Wis., where Mr. Knox made a large fortune in the lumber business. Mrs. Knox was Mary S. Axford before her marriage. She was born in Oxford, Wis., on Jan. 6, 1846.
     Dr. Floyd Poe, pastor of the City Temple Presbyterian Church, of which Mrs. Knox was a member, said Saturday that the aged woman was not a recluse, but was kept indoors by her extreme age and the infirmity of one leg.
     "She was a majestically Christian woman," Dr. Poe said. "Kindly and with a simple trust in everyone, she was one of the best women I ever knew."

Administrator Named.
     Dr. Poe was named temporary administrator of Mrs. Knox's estate when he appeared before County Probate Judge Ben H. Fly Saturday morning and presented a petition, in which her belongings were valued at $75,000.
     Upon his appointment, to hold until the court probates Mrs. Knox's will, Dr. Poe made bond of $25,000.
     The petition asking administration of the estate, declared that Mrs. Knox left $12,000 in negotiable securities and money not deposited in a bank, nor any safe place; that she left various properties, from which revenues are regularly obtained, and listed other pressing matters in relation to her estate.
     No arrests had been made Saturday morning in connection with the case, although Inspector Fritz indicated that some action might be expected during the day. The case may "break" at any time, he said, although the complexity of evidence has done much to slow police progress.
     Funeral arrangements for Mrs. Knox were being arranged Saturday by the Brewer Undertaking Company, where the body will remain until time for services.
     Surviving are five grandchildren, Miss Mary Knox, Merton Knox, Hiram Knox, Jr., William Knox and L. Marsine Knox, children of Hiram and Lillian Knox; one grand nephew, Merel Rosel of Moscow, Kan., and grand-niece, Mrs. Lydia Rutter of Piedmont, Kan.

Gave Home to Friend.
     The homestead in which Mrs. Knox was murdered was conveyed by warranty deed, Nov. 18, 1931, to Mary E. Rosel of Grant County, Kan., for $10 and other considerations, as well as "for the love and affection I bear for her." A stipulation in the deed was to the effect that Mrs. Knox was to retain full possession, benefit and use of the property for life.
     More recent conveyances by Mrs. Knox, as revealed by a check of records in the county clerk's office, were single pieces of property to Clyde Walston on June 13, 1936; H. C. Trout, on June 19, 1936; Catherine E. Bird, on June 25, 1936, and J. B. Robinson, on July 2, 1936.
     The records also show Mrs. Knox's conveyances of liens to the Dallas Bank and Trust Company on June 26, 1936, and to the Metropolitan Building and Loan Company on Sept. 28, 1936.

NEGRO ADMITS
AX SLAYING

_______

SAYS HE KILLED MAN FORC-
ING WAY INTO HIS
ROOM

     A Negro was in the city jail a few minutes after the killing early Wednesday of Pete Martinez, 33, in his home, at 2214 Summers Street. Police claimed the negro admitted killing Martinez with an ax, claiming that he did it in self-defense.
     According to the police report, Martinez and the Negro were roomers in the same house. Martinez drank heavily during the night, and several times tried to force his way into the Negro's room, the Negro told police.
     Finally, after the Negro had ejected him for the fifth time, Martinez allegedly came back with an ice pick, smashed the door lock and threatened the Negro. In retaliation, the Negro said he picked up an ax and smashed Martinez on the back of the head, then struck him two more times.
     Detectives Jack Archer and Tom Bedell, answering the police call to the scene, arrested the man immediately.

DR. ALVA W. CARNES

Dr. Alva W. Carnes
Stricken on Farm;
Rites Set Friday

______

Tennessee-Born, Veteran
Practitioner Lived in
Texas for Many Years

____

Sudden Heart Attack
Is Fatal to Veteran
Country Doctor, 81

     Death, striking suddenly Thursday evening, brought to a quiet close, the life of one of the State's old-time country doctors, Dr. Alva Wood Carnes, 81-year-old patriarch of Hutchins. Funeral services will be held at 10 a. m. Saturday at the residence, with burial to follow in the family plot in Hutchins. Surviving are his wife, the former Miss Minnie Lee Simpson, whom he married in 1883, and a son, Dr. Campbell Carnes.
     Dr. Carnes, born in Spencer, Tenn., June 21, 1856, was graduated from Burrett College, founded by his grandfather, and from Vanderbilt Medical College in 1883. In 1886, he moved to Hutchins and lived there until his death, except during 1917 and 1918. He brought many babies into the world, many returning in later years to have their children delivered by him. He was the hero of many races against death over lonely country roads. His eightieth birthday was the occasion of a surprise party given by his son. Word got around, however, and the neighborhood was thronged with people from many parts of the State, assembled to pay their [respects.]
     Dr. Carnes was three times chairman of the Dallas County Democratic Convention and was city health officer here for many years. He also was in charge of the Dallas County Convalescent Home from 1923 to 1934, was connected with the institution for forty-eight years, and usually made the memorial address at the State medical society meeting. He was correspondent for The Dallas News since 1887. A year ago, he suffered a heart attack and was almost given up for dead. He rallied, however, but virtually retired after that. Thursday, he spent out on his farm, returning to the house at dinner time to eat. Apparently in normal health, he suddenly succumbed to a heart attack soon after finishing the meal.

Death Claims
W. W. Samuell,
Famed Surgeon

______

Founder of Dallas Clinic
Dies of Sudden Heart
Attack; Funeral to Be
Held Tuesday Morning

______

Noted for Speed
______

Associates Estimated He
Operated More Cases
Than Any in Country.

     A sudden heart attack, Sunday morning, brought to a close, the career of Dr. W. W. Samuell, 59, of Maple Terrace, Dallas physician, who was considered one of the country's foremost surgeons. He was a member of the staff of the Methodist Hospital, Baylor Hospital and St. Paul's Hospital, where he died.
     About a month ago, Dr. Samuell was taken to St. Paul's Hospital, critically ill from pneumonia. He recovered and was allowed to return home, where his condition continued to improve, until he was allowed to be up and walk about the house. A few days ago, he went to his farm near Mesquite. Saturday night, he was suddenly stricken with a heart attack. He succumbed a few hours later.

Native of Kentucky.
     Dr. Samuell was born Jan. 13, 1878, the son of Capt. Hazael O. and Sallie Worthington Samuell, in Georgetown, Ky. His parents moved to Dallas County, settling in the vicinity of New Hope, when he was a year old. His grade school education was received at Georgetown and in the Dallas schools. He attended the University of Texas and took his medical degree from Tulane University, following which, he studied in Europe for two years. Upon his return, he lived in Mississippi, then came to Dallas the next year and began practicing here. During the World War, he served as a Captain in the medical corps, stationed at Camp Travis.
     He was an exceptionally fast worker under operating room conditions, and his colleagues estimated he had performed more operations than any other surgeon in the country.
     Modest and self-effacing, he refused to become entangled in politics of professional groups, and for that reason, refused to consider holding any office in medical societies.

Funeral Set Tuesday.
     Dr. Samuell was a Democrat and a Baptist and held memberships in the following clubs and fraternities: Fellow, American Society of Surgeons; Scottish Rite Masons, Elks, Brook Hollow Golf Club, Lakewood Country Club, Dallas Hunting and Fishing Club, Little Sandy Hunting and Fishing club, Dallas County Medical Society, Texas State Medical Association, American Medical Society. In 1914, he organized the Samuell-Thomasson-Hill Clinic, now the Samuell Clinic.
     His profession was his major interest in life, but he liked to play golf, fish and shoot. He was a capable linksman and an expert with either pistol or rifle.
     Dr. George W. Truett will conduct funeral services at 10:30 a. m., Tuesday, at the First Baptist Church. Burial will follow in Oakland Cemetery. Pallbearers will include: Dr. A. R. Thomasson, Dr. S. M. Hill, Dr. O. W. Gibbons, Dr. U. P. Hackney, Dr. R. A. Trumball, Dr. R. T. Travis, Dr. W. E. Crow, Dr. E. B. Brannin and Dr. Dan Brannin.

FRIENDS FROM ALL WALKS OF
LIFE FILL CHURCH IN FINAL
TRIBUTE TO GREAT SURGEON

By Eugene Key

     Fellow physicians and surgeons, city officials, nurses, private citizens, paupers -- all friends of the same man, thronged the First Baptist Church Tuesday morning to pay final tribute to Dr. W. W. Samuell, one of the nation's leading surgeons, who died early Sunday.
     Approximately 3,000 persons braved inclement weather to attend the funeral.
     From the communion rail of the church, to the back of the choir loft, floral pieces, large and small, radiated from the gray casket.
     Almost 150 nurses from St. Paul's Hospital, where Dr. Samuell's efforts were concentrated, sat in a reserved section.
     In the balcony, another section was reserved for Negroes, many of whom Dr. Samuell had aided as charity cases.
     Dr. George W. Truett reviewed the life of Dr. Samuell and extolled him as "one of the outstanding men of the city and state -- all classes were his clientele."
     He pointed out that "Dr. Samuell's efforts will live on in the lives of countless other physicians, and in the works of young medical students, for whom he could always find time to stop and give a word of advice of encouragement."
     Musical selections were "In the Garden," and "Rock of Ages."
     Following the service at the church, the cortege proceeded to Oakland Cemetery for services at the grave.
     From 9 a. m., until the service began at 10:30, an almost continuous line of friends and associates filed past the casket. Mingled in the number were representatives from every social level, most of whom had, at one time, been attended by Dr. Samuell.
     A Negro woman had made her way down the aisle toward the casket just as it was closed. Attendants reopened it briefly. She gazed inside and then walked slowly away.
     Dr. Samuell was taken to St. Paul's Hospital about a month ago, after he was stricken with pneumonia. He improved gradually, until he was allowed to leave the hospital. A few days ago, he went to his farm near Mesquite, to recuperate, but suffered a heart attack Saturday night.
     He was brought back to St. Paul's Hospital, but succumbed a few hours later, at 1:15 a. m. Sunday.

Born in Kentucky.
     He was born Jan. 13, 1878, in Georgetown, Ky., to Capt. Hazael O. and Sallie Worthington Samuell. After completing his education and graduating from medical school of Tulane University, he studied abroad and returned, after a short residence in Mississippi, to practice in Dallas. He founded the Samuell Clinic in 1914, and was the principal factor in its high repute in medical circles.
     He was a Democrat, a Baptist, a Fellow in the American Society of Surgeons and a member of the Scottish Rite Masons, Elks, Brook Hollow Golf Club, Lakewood County Club, Dallas Hunting and Fishing Club, Little Sandy Hunting and Fishing Club, Dallas County Medical Society, Texas State Medical Association and the American Medical Society.
     Survivors include his widow; one sister, Mrs. Harry Williams, both of Dallas; and one brother, E. W. Samuell, of Phoenix, Ariz.
     Pallbearers were: Dr. A. R. Thomasson, Dr. S. M. Hill, Dr. O. W. Gibbons, Dr. U. P. Hackney, Dr. R. A. Trumball, Dr. W. E. Crow, Dr. E. B. Brannin, Dr. Dan Brannin of Dallas, and Dr. R. T. Travis of Jacksonville, Texas.

[Editorial]
DR. W. W. SAMUELL

     DR. W. W. SAMUELL might have prolonged his own life, if he had paused a few years ago and reduced his daily work budget, but he was driven on by his desire to save the lives of others.
     The nationallly recognized skil of this great surgeon enabled him to wrork rapidly, and his anxiety to give a maximum of service, gave him little time to think of his own health.
     But, Dr. Samuell was no cold, disinterestd man of science. He thought of each of his patiets as a fellow human being in distress. Although he was a specialist in the finest sense of hte term, he followed up each of his cases with the sympathy of a family doctor. His cheerfulness and his air of confidence servied him as well as instrumetns.
     Those patients whom Dr. Samuell resuced from death will find it difficult to realize that he has, himself, been overtaken by the Grim Reaper. To thousands of persons, the mere fact that he was alive and active, seemed a bulwark of protection.
     The value of some indivual is not recognid fully until they are gone, but this was not true in the case of Dr. Samuell. It is a comfort to know that he was made to realize that his skill was apprecited, yet this fact was undoubtedly respondible, in part, for his premature death.
