      DEATH OF DAUGHTER OF EDWARD DRESHER

      Child Passed Away In Methodist Hospital At Indianapolis

      Thelma, the 9-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Dresher, living east of Arcadia, died in the Methodist hospital in Indianapolis at 8 o'clock Tuesday night, where she had been taken during the afternoon. She was taken ill two weeks ago with nose and mouth bleeding and complications of a hemorrhage nature which were thought to be caused by the after effects of the flu. She had been complaining during the winter, but had not been out of school until two weeks ago. She was a student in the Walnut Grove school. Her sudden death is a sad shock to family, relatives and schoolmates as she was an exceptionally bright and winsome girl.

      Thelma, the second daughter of Edward and Golda (Thomas) Dresher, was born east of Arcadia Sept. 5, 1916 and spent her few years in the same community in which she was born. Besides the parents she leaves a sister, Helen.

      The family resides with Mr. Dresher's father, Faulty Dresher, and the grandfather Robert Thomas are the only living grandparents of the child.

      The child was to have undergone a blood transfusion Wednesday morning. The funeral will be held in the Dunkard church at Arcadia at 10:30 o'clock Thursday morning.
