Richord Walter Gwyn A humble, modest gentleman, " -whoae heart was iblg enough to hold In affection all his fellow men; a man who knew so well and esftmpllfled so richly the meaning of true friendship; a man who loved his work so much that he disliked holidays unless they gave him opportunity tor an outing in God's great open spaces; a genial, friendly man who had a contagious and re freshing sense of humor; a noble and useful citizen who has left an abiding and tremendously val uable heritage to this communi ty where he lived out the full years of his mature manhood; a great and exemplary Christian who lived his faith in every re lationship. of life;—that was Richard Walter Gwyn, our friend and neighbor, who, on the even ing of December twenty-fourth, slipped away into tha^ larger room of life.

Let the world be the better for . you; i And at last when you die, let this be ybur cry: , Carry on, my soul! Carry on! Sincerely submitted, GILBERT R. COMBS, j. r. rax, J. B.
