Memorial Rites for Captain to Be at Marquette Saturday

Former Mason Cityan Was Killed in Action in Burma on June 15

Memorial services for Capt. William Wheeler Henthorne, former local resident killed in action in Burma June 15, will be held Saturday at 3:30 o'clock at the Methodist church in Marquette, where his parents, Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Henthorne, now live.

The American Legion post of Marquette will attend in a body.

Mr. and Mrs. Henthorne request that persons who wish to honor their son do so by gifts to charitable organizations of their own choosing rather than by sending flowers.
