E. "Jim" Williams, 63. Mason City attorney, who died at a hospital in Rochester, Minn., S a t u r d a y morning, following an illness, were held at the Congregational church Tuesday afternoon, with the Rev. Roy C. Helfenstein, pastor of the church, in charge. "Wo now gather to pay our tribute of respect to the memory of our fellow townsman, James Edward Williams, who so recently has passed from labor to reward," said Mr. Helfenstein. ''There is nothing that we can do, nothing that we can say that could in any way effect or help 'Jim'--as he was known by his neighbors, by his professional associates, by business acquaintances, by the boys on the streets and by all his friends--and 'their number is legion. * w * "This service is for the living and not for the dead. It is in memory of the dead, but in behalf of the living. 'Jim' has laid down his pen for other hands to wield, he has presented his last case before the courts, he has closed his books and started on that long journey from whence no traveler has e'er returned . . . the journey that every person of us must someday lake. * ¥ *, "The one in whose memory we are now gathered will be remembered by some for his wholes o m e enthusiasm in athletic sports, and for the services he rendered in his younger days as coach of athletic teams. He will be remembered by others for his timely and able editorials when serving as editor of a Mason City paper in his early days in Mason City, He will be remembered by others for the kindly services rendered to those in need, prompted in such cases by the one desire to help the person who needed his help, and without any thougth of compensation lor the services rendered. "His friends say that that was 'Jim's' greatest delight -- namely to help someone who needed his help. One of his greatest joys in life was to counsel and advise young lawyers just starting in practice, and to help them over some of the rough places. He will be remembered by all who knew him for his cheerful, optimistic and hopeful attitude toward life. Retiring in manner, unassuming in disposition, and charitable in his attitude, Jim lived his life among men. * * * "He liked people. He loved his city. lie was proud of his state. He was loyal to his country. But Jim Williams manifestly a 'home man." Home, to him, was more than a place to hang his clothes over night. It was the place where he most enjoyed to be. As a youns man he advocated that every father should be a pal to his children. And when he himself became 3 father, his own life was a ·worthy example of what it means for a father to be a real pal to his children. And he sought, moreover, to fee a real friend lo all children. What a commendable trait oJ character!" Mrs. J. E. Stinchart played several favorite hymns of the family, the pastor reading the verses of some of them to soft accompaniment of the organ. Gladys Elfstrand and Lucille Lawler were in charge of flowers. Attending (he services from out of the city were two daughters and sons-in-law. Mr. and Mrs. R. L.
