To have done all three with a great measure of success, speaks extremely well of such a man. Your previous retirement from the Legislature and now from the field of education creates vacancies not easily filled, certainly not with the qualities you have demonstrated over the years. We appreciate the interest you gave the problems of the mining industry during your years in the state Legislature and thank you for being a friend. It is evident by a number of our younger employees, who received a portion of their formal education at Bayard Elementary School, that your positive influence has been felt. For helping our young people grow into respectable and responsible citizens, we also thank you. Your friends at Chino wish you the best life has to offer as ranching becomes your full time occupation (with a healthy amount of leisure, we hope). Very truly yours, R.R. Leveille./ He is survived by his wife, Madeline, of Mangus Springs; his two sons, Donovan of San Francisco, Calif., and Carl Lawrence of Las Cruces; and two grandchildren.

Funk: Little Gerald Lynn Funk, two year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy J. Funk, formerly of Ft. Bayard, died Monday of this week, the victim of lukemia. Death came to the little sufferer, for whom medical science waged a notable battle, at Washington, D.C., where he had been a patient at the Georgetown University hospital since last March. Stricken with the blood consuming disease for which no cure has been found, Gerald became the object of national attention when, through efforts of the American Red Cross and hundreds of kindly people, he and his parents were flown to Washington on the American Airlines for an experimental treatment with the new miracle drug, cortisone. Object of the treatment was to perform a delaying action against the disease in hopes that a cure could be found before the inroads became too great. For a time it appeared as if the experiment would be a success and the little patient rallied. After a while the treatment became futile and death claimed the victory. As an act of kindness on the part of the Veterans Administration by whom the baby's father was employed at Ft. Bayard, an assignment and transfer was arranged for him in Washington so that the family could be near the scene where the treatments, very expensive, were being given and the youngster comforted by their presence. Hundreds of people, most of whom were not remotely acquainted with the family, sent money contributions and words of comfort to the troubled parents. Friends at Ft. Bayard did everything in their power to aid the worthy cause. Proceeds from one performance of the Bayard Lions Minstrel were given to help pay for treatment. The rallying of aid and friendship and the efforts of the doctors constitute a shining hour in the many sordid ones of current human events. Funeral services for Gerald were held in Washington Wednesday from the W.W. Chambers funeral home in Washington. In addition to the parents, he is survived by a sister, Joyce Funk. Interment was also made in Washington.
