Caspar Junker victim of heart attack Wednesday
Long time resident of Sandy passes while sleeping; funeral to be held Saturday, Jan. 29, at 2 P.M.
Sandy residents were struck with grief Wednesday evening with the sudden passing of Casper Junker.
Mr. Junker passed to his Maker due to a heart attack while taking an evening nap.
His residence of more than 50 years in Sandy has endeared him to the citizens of this community thru his kindly disposition and friendly spirit.
He came directly to Sandy from Hessen, Germany, his birthplace, at the age of 23. After seven years spent in Portland in the hotel business, he returned to Sandy to remain for the rest of his life.
(He and his wife) raised four children, all of whom reside in Oregon. He was an active member of the Lutheran church and was well known in Republican politics. Many notables in the party called on him when near Sandy.
Besides the widow, he is survived by two sons, Henry Junker of Portland and Fred Junker of Salem, and two daughters, Mary Clinefelter of Oswego, and Mrs. (Kate) Schmitz of Sandy.
Funeral services will be conducted at the Lutheran church in Sandy, Saturday, Feb. 29, at 2 p.m.

An 'advertorial' column, written by pharmacist Ivan Barker, was called 'Barker's Bugle.'
Howdy folks; proving that this column is becoming more and more popular, the editor received 89 letters and three bombs last week. Now all us great writers like Irwin Cobb and the writer of this stuff like to see their work appreciated, but will the one who made that nasty crack about the nurse dropping us on our heads when we were young please cancel his subscription to this column?

Would suggest if you want relief from those sleepless nights, try vitamin B1, a harmless tonic and food.

Long hair may make a man look intelligent, but not when his wife finds them on his coat lapel.

But it's a cinch that DeWitts hair oil will give your hair that well-groomed appearance we all want and like to see.
