WILL CONTEST
DUE IN APRIL

______

ANSWER IN SAMUELL ESTATE
SUIT FILED BY ADMIN-
ISTRATOR

     Hearing on the contest of the will of the late Anne Lovell Samuell, first wife of Dr. W. W. Samuell, who died here recently, leaving more than half a million dollars to the city park board, probably will be held in April, it was said Thursday, after formal answer in the will contest suit was filed.
     The contest action was brought by Mrs. Mary Lovell Leneham and her husband, Patrick J. Leneham, both of New York City. Mrs. Leneham is a sister of the first Mrs. Samuell. She charges her sister was subject to undue influence when making the will in which the bulk of her estate went to Dr. Samuell.
     Answer in the contest action was filed by S. M. Leftwich, attorney for the First National Bank in Dallas. The bank was named defendant in Mrs. Leneham's suit by reason of it having been designated as administrator of Dr. Samuell's estate in his will. The answer makes general denial of allegations in Mrs. Leneham's suit. A plea in abatement was also filed by the bank. This claims Mrs. Leneham has no interest on which to sue, pointing out Dr. Samuell would have inherited his first wife's property had there been no will.

MOSELEY TO
PROBE DEATH
AT PARKLAND

_____

WILL INVESTIGATE ALLEGED
DELAY FATAL TO STRICKEN
YOUTH

     Investigation of a complaint that Parkland Hospital attendants let a Dallas boy die of blood poisoning on an operating table, while they investigated his parents' ability to pay for treatment, was resumed Friday by City Manager Hal Moseley, after he obtained the alleged victim's name from Councilman Emil Cotenbloth.
     The victim, Cotenbleth told the manager, was a lad named Randolph Noonan or Randolph Feltz.
     Corenbleth, who demanded the investigation a week ago, identified the youth after the city-county hospital board and Dr. E. M. Donstan, superintendent of Parkland Hospital reported that they had no record of the death.

Council Order.
     "Whether the hospital was negligent, I don't know," Moseley said. "Following instructions from the council, I am making the investigation and hope to be able to submit the facts to the council Friday night."
     At a meeting Thursday night, the hospital board adopted resolutions deploring the circulation of "false rumors which indicate the hospital's services or policies defective." The board welcomed the investigation, however.
     H. J. Curtis, chairman of the board, declared that the board always had given explicit orders that hospital attendants must treat emergency patients before investigating their financial rating.

     Mrs. Rosa Santerre, 67, widow of the late Gustave Santerre, one of the founders of the old French colony, La Reunion, west of Oak Cliff, died at Methodist Hospital early Monday, after a brief illness.
     Mrs. Santerre was the daughter of Rosa and John Loupot, pioneer settlers of Dallas County. She was born at the old Loupot homestead, which stood on the present site of the Hall of Records Building.
     Her mother, Mrs. Loupot, immigrated to Dallas from Berne, Switzerland, when 17 years old. Mrs. Loupot came to Texas to escape the Franco-Prussian War. She sailed the Atlantic Ocean in a poorly-manned sailboat that required sixty-three days to cross the Atlantic.
     Mrs. Loupot landed at Galveston and came to Dallas in a wagon drawn by oxen.

Funeral Tuesday.
     In 1893, Rosa Loupot, named after her mother, married Gustave Santerre and went to live at the present homestead at 422 1/2 North Westmoreland Road, the modern address for the old French colony, La Reunion.
     Funeral services will be held at 2 p. m. Tuesday at Lamar & Smith Funeral Chapel, with Rev. Virgil Fisher, pastor of the Tyler Street Methodist Church officiating. Burial will be in Restland Cemetery.
     Surviving are her two sons, John Roy Santerre of Arlington, and McLeo Santerre of Dallas; one daughter, Mrs. Pearl Marie Henselee; five grandchildren, Shirley O'Brien, Gus Santerre, Roy Clifton Santerre, Rosalyn Santerre and John Marcel Santerre, and one brother, Max Loupot, of Dallas.

RICHARDSON
PIONEER IS
BURIED TODAY

_______

W. SCOTT HUFFHINES, 81, CAME
TO DALLAS COUNTY IN
EARLY DAYS

     Richardson, Tex., Dec. 18 (Special) -- Funeral services for W. Scott Huffhines, 81, who died at his home in Richardson early Sunday, were held at the Mt. Calvary Baptist Church at 2 o'clock today, conducted by Rev. R. F. Thompson, pastor and assisted by Rev. L. S. Ballard, Dallas; Rev. P. C. Scott, Lindale and Rev. George Fender, Arlington. Burial was in Mt. Calvary Cemetery.
     Mr. Huffhines was the son of George W. and Mary Wilson Huffhines, who came from Kentucky in 1853 and located near the present site of Richardson. He spent practically his entire life in this community. He was born fourteen years before the first railroad was built into Dallas County, and when the roads were mere trails. He had seen Dallas County grow from a sparsely settled prairie country, and the city of Dallas from a small town of rambling shacks on the Trinity River to their present place of development and commercial pre-eminence. He remembered well when deer came regularly to drink from a creek near their home, and although only a lad, he remembered when the message was brought to his home that his father had been killed in the Battle of Chicamaugua, while serving as a soldier in the Confederate Army.
     During the earlier part of Mr. Huffhines life, he was engaged in farming and stock raising. He served several years as deputy district clerk of Dallas County. Also was engaged in the mercantile business in Richardson. He retired from active business five years ago. He was active in civic and church affairs of the community, and was a charter member and senior deacon of the Mt. Calvary Baptist Church.
     Immediate survivors are his widow, Alice Brittain Huffhines, one son, Brittain Huffhines of Dallas, and three daughters, Mrs. Stella Watson Smith of Richardson and Mrs. W. L. Strawn and Mrs. W. S. Stratton of Dallas, fourteen grandchildren and seven great grand children.

LEONIDAS HALL

Young Alabama Solder Boy
Whom Yankees Couldn't Kill
In Civil War, Succumbs Here

______

     Leonidas Hall, 94, the boy soldier that bullets couldn't kill in the Civil War, died Thursday, seventy-five years after doctors had pronounced him mortally wounded.
     The white-haired commander of the Dallas camp of United Confederate Veterans, who was given up for dead on a Civil War battlefield in Virginia, had been in failing health for two months at the home of his daughter, Mrs. George A. Grizzle, 2108 South Harwood. At 1:45 p. m., conscious to the last, he silently closed his eyes and slipped away.
     The fingers that had carried the standard of the Confederacy for eight decades, first as a flagbearer and later as an official of veterans' organizations, loosed their grasp.

Wounded at War's End.
     After fighting the last two years of the war without a wound, Commander Hall was shot in the abdomen three days before Lee surrendered at Appomatox.
     He was carrying the flag of his Forty-Third Alabama Regiment in the Battle of Sailor's Creek in Virginia on April 6, 1865, when the bullet caught him in the abdomen. Apparently mortally wounded, he was left on the field. That night, Federal troops picked him up and carried him to a field hospital which had been set up in a farmhouse near by.
     "I was lying on the floor when the doctors passed," he told later. "I heard them say, 'He's mortally wounded.' I fooled them, though, and started getting well. Later, I was transferred by hospital boat to the Lincoln Hospital in Washington, D. C., and I remained there until late in June. Being just able to travel, I was sent to New York City, and from there to New Orleans by steamship.
     "I reached home about the tenth of July, to the great surprise of my family. I was supposed to be dead."

Enlisted at 16.
     Mr. Hall was only 19 when he received his wound. A native of Greene County, Alabama, he ran off from home to Mobile just after his sixteenth birthday against his parents' orders. There he joined Capt. J. J. Jolly's company in Gracie's Alabama Brigade.
     They made a sashay with General Bragg through Kentucky's dark and bloody ground in 1862. After the Battle of Chickamauga in September, 1863, his regiment was detached from the Tennessee army and sent to Virginia with Longstreet's Corps. They fought with the army of Northern Virginia until the end of the war.
     Shortly after the Battle of Chickamauga, the flag of the regiment was thrust into Hall's hands, and he carried the colors until the end. As a result, he was commissioned a first lieutenant.
     Mr. Hall moved to Dallas in 1900 from Alabama, where for many years he had been a dairyman. He was the oldest member of the Ervay Street Baptist Church. He became commander of the Dallas Confederate Veterans in 1932.

Leaves Thirty-Seven Descendants.
     The Rev. R. C. Campbell will conduct funeral services at the church at 10:30 a. m. Saturday, and burial will be in Oakland Cemetery. Deacons and elders of the church, Confederate veterans, and their sons will be honorary pallbearers. Active pallbearers will be V. D. Reynolds, J. H. Smith, Raymond Cornett, Joe Tucker, Leonard Bowden and Douglas Parks.
     Mr. Hall leaves three children, Mrs. Grizzle, Mrs. James Dannelly of Los Angeles, Calif., and T. H. Hall of Tupelo, Miss.; sixteen grandchildren, and eighteen great-grandchildren.

     Pallbearers will be V. D. Reynolds, J. H. Smith, Raymond Cornett, Joe Tucker, Leonard Bowden and Douglas Parks. Honorary pallbearers will be deacons and elders of the church, Confederate veterans and their sons.
     Mr. Hall, who had been ill two months, was in the Forth-Third Alabama Regiment in the Civil War, and was seriously wounded on April 6, 1865. He was a native of Greene County, Alabama, and, at the outbreak of the war, joined Capt. J. J. Jolley's company in Grace's Alabama Brigade.
     He had been in the dairy business in Alabama before coming here. He was made commander of the local veterans' camp in 1932.
     Surviving are his two daughters, Mrs. Grizzle and Mrs. James Dannelly of Los Angeles, Cal., and one son, T. H. Hall, of Tupelo, Miss.

MRS. R. G. TANNER

Woman Dies
Who Saw First
Dallas Train

______

Rode in Covered Wagon
To Texas, Heard State's
Founders Speak

     Mrs. R. G. Tanner, 81, who liked best among her recollections, the day when her father took her to see the first railroad train to enter this city, died Wednesday at her home, 5707 Maple.
     She was born at Tupelo, Miss. When she was 11 years old, her father, Thomas Layton, packed into a train of covered wagons, all his possessions and his family, and set out for the new country, Texas. She remembered that long trip not as a hardship, but as a series of exciting days filled with new scenes and adventures.
     Mr. Layton, who was a planter, farmed a part of the old Caruth place, north of town, until his retirement.
     One especially hot summer day -- July 17, 1872 -- he promised his children an unusual experience, something they had never seen before. They drove to town in a wagon and joined a sweating crowd of 7,000 excited persons who awaited the coming of Dallas' first railroad train, the Houston & Texas Central, that bore many dignitaries. Among them was Col. W. J. Hutchinson, vice president of the road, who made a speech, as did John Henry Brown, while John Neely Bryan, founder of Dallas, smiled from the speakers' platform.
     Mrs. Tanner joined the Cochran Chapel Methodist Church when she was 13, and later became a member of the Oak Lawn Methodist Church.
     Surviving her are four daughters, Mrs. Luella Carver of Dallas, Mrs. D. W. Hughes of Carrollton, Mrs. Thaysen Schwalbe of Long Beach, Calif., and Mrs. G. E. McAllester of Glendale, Ariz.; a brother, Albert T. Layton of Dallas; three sisters, Mrs. L. B. Frechette and Mrs. Beulah Bailey of Dallas and Mrs. Annie Tanner of Sherman, twenty-three grandchildren and twenty-six great-grandchildren.

Walking Champ, Nonsmoking
Tobacco Salesman, Ex-Trolley
Official, Succumbs to Illness

     Will H. Dana, who won the world's unofficial walking championship at the age of 69 on his belief that no transportation could ever replace a man's two legs, died Wednesday at his residence, 2116 North Haskell, after a year-long illness.
     The great-grandson of President John Adam's Ambassador to Russia and the grandson of the founder of Rochester, N. Y., Dana came to Dallas from the New York city in 1890. He had lived here ever since.
     It was in 1921 that he accepted the challenge of Dan O'Leary, self-styled walking champion of the world, and met and defeated the Irishman in a twenty-five mile go in the hall of the Labor Temple. O'Leary was past 70 at the time, but for several years, had been putting on walking exhibitions.
     Friends urged Dana to accept the match, after watching him act as pace setter for O'Leary at several other walking demonstrations. According to accounts at the time, Dana won the match handily, despite the fact that he swerved from his course several times to open windows for ventilation. O'Leary had offered a gold medal to the man beating him, but Dana said he never could find the defeated champion after the match.

Wearer of Carnation.
     With a carnation in his button-hole, he was a familiar sight on Dallas streets during his daily walks. He kept up the activity until a few years ago, when his health failed and he retired to his home.
Dana started in Dallas as a salesman for the American Tobacco Company, although he never smoked in his life. His zeal to see that others did, however, led to his rank as star salesman of the area for many years.
     Later, he was with the Dallas Street Railway Company for many years in an advisory and public relations capacity. That didn't cut in on his walking, though, even if it was his job to see that more Dallasites rode the street cars.
     A Republican when he came to Dallas, he had to switch his affiliations three years later when he married Miss Florine Roberson of Sherman.
     "He always thought like a Republican," Mrs. Dana averred Wednesday, "but he voted the right way--Democratic."
     During the Russo-Japanese War, Mr. Dana developed a warm admiration for the Japanese. Extremely patriotic anyway, he consistently flew the Japanese flag under the Stars and Stripes from the seventy-five foot flagpole in his front yard on the occasion of each Japanese victory. That flagpole went up with the house at Annex and Bryan, where the Danas lived, but both have been torn down since.
     The Dana family tree listed forebears back to the Revolution and William Whipple, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, was a direct kinsman of Will Dana. Mr. Dana's great grandfather, Francis Dana, was the Ambassador to Russia.
     Will Dana's father, John Dana, was a first cousin of the late Charles Dana, of the New York Sun. A nephew, Francis Dana Coleman, went with Rear-Admiral Richard E. Byrd to the South Pole, and Mr. Dana numbered among his scrapbook treasures, several messages sent him from Little America. It was Dana's grandfather, also named Francis Dana, who helped Johnathon T. Rochester lay out the city which bears his name.
     Surviving are his wife, a daughter, Mrs. C. S. Lewis, Detroit, Mich., and two granddaughters.
     Funeral services will be at 10:30 a. m. Thursday in the Guardian Funeral Chapel, conducted by the Rev. Paul O. Cardwell. Burial will be in Garden of Memories.
