J. WALTER WILLIAMS

James Walter Williams, 53, of 9234 S. W. 31st avenue, died early Friday at a Portland hospital after a few days’ illness. He had been an employe of Western Union since 1916, the year he came to Oregon, where his work was that of a Morse operator. For several years he had been stationed as operator for Western Union in the newsroom of The Oregonian.

He was born September 5, 1891, in Delavan, Wis. Surviving him are the widow, Mrs. Minnie Williams; a son, PFC Gerald L. Williams, 22, with the 313th engineers, 88th division of the army in Italy, and a daughter, Beverly Ann, 6. The son at present is home on furlough.

Funeral arrangements are in charge of J. P. Finley & Son, the time still to be set.
