Suit Charges Popcorn Caused Fall in Store Former Kinder Northern Couples Are Top Tourists Minister Dies; Rites Set Today BATON ROUGE (Spl.) — Funeral services for the Rev. Charles L. Elliof, 91, a former Methodist minister in Kinder, Jennings and Elton, were held here this morning. Rev. Mr. Elliot died at 10:20 p.m. Tuesday in a Baton Rouge hotel. A resident of 1637 Carl AVR., he was a native of Ceylon, India, and came to this country at the age of 16 to work as one of the "cowboys" on his uncle's ranch in Texas. He later entered the Mount Hermon Academy, an interdenominational school operated by Evangelist, Dwight L. Moody in Massachusetts. Eventually, he decided to enter the ministry where further study took him io Fort Worth University. Shortly afterward he began preaching as an exhorter, a deacon, and finally as an elder in the M e t h o d i st Church. He served a ministry in Methodism that covered four states- Texas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Louisiana, retiring after nearly 50 years. Other Louisiana pastorates which he held were at Choudrant, Bienville, and the Alabama-Summerfield charge. Police stopped two cars on Interstate 10 Tuesday afternoon, but the bewildered drivers were quite relieved and delighted to find that they were not violating the law but had been chosen to participate in the Lake Charles Tourist Appreciation Day. An east-bound car containing Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Waters and Mr. and Mrs. Harland Williams, all of Baltimore, Md., was stopper! by Caslnx Boudreaux, L. W. Tabb and Jim Totli. Herbert Seligman, a New York IBM employe traveling to Houston with his wife and two children, was rtoppcd and escorted into town by Garland Mashburn, R. C. S u b r a and Marshall King. Occupants ot the two tourist vehicles were brought to the city hall for an official welcome by Mayor Alfred Roberts, and Miss Lake Charles of 1964, Jeanne Dronct. Also on hand to welcome the visitors were a number o? other dignitaries, including Voris King, president of the Association of Commerce, and state Reps. A. J. (Tubby) Lyons and Harry Hollins. The travelers were showered with gifts from the Association of Commerce, presented by Santa Glaus (KPLC's Neil Wooley), in keeping with the "Christmag in July" celebration. The program is part of a state wide effort put on by the stale board of commerce and industry to attract more visitors. The Association of Commerce teamed up with the mayor's office to put on the show of friendship. In addition to being interviewed by newsmen, photographed for the newspapers and television, the visitors were also to be guests of a local motel, with dinner and breakfast served for the entire family. The Seligman children, Floyd, 10, and Dene, 8, were especially delighted with the proceedings and posed for photographers, even to sitting on a cake of ice provided as a seat for Santa.
