The community was shocked and saddened about six o'clock, Saturday evening to learn of the sudden death of John BERRY by drowning in the creek on the Allen LULL farm east of town.

He, with John PATTERSON, Mr. BERRY and his father went down to the creek to fish. He went in
the water and as it was a hot day, it was thought he was taken with cramps which caused him to sink to the bottom. He was in a narrow channel about four feet wide and eight feet deep.

His father and Mr. PATTERSON tried to get him out but could not, so they had Raymond BURTON come down and dive in and get him out. Mr. BERRY was well known here and will be greatly missed by his many friends.

John Louis Clifford BERRY, youngest son of Louise and Addie BERRY was born on the home farm near Morrowville, June 22, 1906 and departed this life June
13, 1931 at the age of 24 years, 11 months and 21 days.

He was educated in the community schools and assisted his parents on the farm.
On June 21, 1926 he was united in marriage to Martha Marie NORLUND, of Wayne, KS and since then has lived on a farm near where he was born.

He leaves to mourn him besides his wife and parents, two brothers, Charles of Denver, CO and Roy of Washington, and two sisters, Mildred UNFRED of Haddam, KS and Ruth THOMAS of Haddam.

His manliness and sunny disposition made him a host of friends by whom he will be sadly missed.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 2:30 at the Blocker Church conducted by Rev. LATIMER.
