Mr. Hutton had been at Rochester, Minn., for a number of weeks, during which time he underwent the operation. Only two weeks npto did he return home, and seemed to be well on the road to recovery. Pneumonia, however, plus his weakened condition as a result of the operation, turned the happiness with which his return hud been greeted into deepest sorrow. Funeral Saturday Funeral services were held Saturday at the Bancroft Baptist church. Rev. Bryden, Bancroft Baptist pastor, and Rev. G. C. Vance of the Algona Congregational church, had charge of the services. Pallbearers were Arthur Murray, Thomas Garry, Ambrose Kennedy, Charles Hanson, Vlggo Chrtstenscn and Harold Janvrin. Interment was in the Bancroft cemetery, with services conducted by the Masonic Lodge of which Mr. Hutton was a member and former Past Master, No. 503. He was a 32nd degree Mason and Shrlner. Mr. Hutton was a member of the Congregational church, having joined that religious group in his youth at Pierce, Neb. Widow, Daughter Survive Surviving are his widow, and a daughter, Mrs. L. F. Bakcman, Takoma Park, Alaryland; a sister, Mrs. E. L., of St. Paul, Minn., and an entire community of warm friends who join with his family in their sorrow. Mr. Hutton was born at Pierce, Nebraska, June 10, 1887, and spent bis early life in that state. He attended academy in Nebraska, and on July 4, 1907, was married to Miss Ivy L. Cross. After u .short sojourn in Bonestecl, South Dakota, he moved to Bancroft in 1911, where he had made his residence since that time. In partnership with Joe Junks, who passed away about thre>; years ago, Mr. Hutton's firm was known throughout the nation because of the immense volume of commercial printing it did in catalogues. About a year ago, after devoting some time to the development of a steam fitting tool, he turned the management of the newspaper over tc D. E. Dewel, and spent much time in promoting sales of the tool line, which met with great success. Just a few weeks ago, the paper passed into the hands of Harold Clark, formerly of Garner. A Community Leader Roy Hutton enjoyed living in a manner that a majority could well envy. His interest in his home town, its organizations and his home was exemplary. He held important posts in the Bancroft Lions club, and was a civic and county leader in all ways. He had been postmaster of Bancroft for several terms, and was u well known leader in republican party circles. Last summer, Mr. and Mrs. Hutton took an extended trip east, visiting with their daughter and husband, and seeing some of the sights that in his earlier days he was unable to take the time to view. In recent years, a kidney ailment bothered him to an increasing degree, and he resolved to make an effort to remedy the pain and suffering, and underwent the opera- lion at Rochester. To his own folks in Bancroft, to lis many friends elsewhere, and to ihe host of newspaper people who *new him, the departure of Roy Hutton has brought a great sadness ind all feel with the bereaved in their great loss.
