BODY  OF  BERNARD  HURST  WILL  BE
LAID  TO  REST  FRIDAY  MORNING
----------
[Great picture of Bernard in uniform.]
----------
          Word was received here today that the body of  Bernard Hurst,  private in Battery E, 150th field artillery, who died of wounds received in the accident in which  Paul F. Cross,  of this city, was instantly killed, has arrived at the home of his mother,  Mrs. Matilda Hurst,  at Oldenburg.  Funeral services will be held at the Oldenburg Catholic church, Friday morning at 9 o'clock.  Regular military honors will be paid by the American Legion post of that place.
          Members of Battery E and members of Victory Post, No. 70, American Legion, are urged to go to Oldenburg, Friday morning, and be present for the funeral.
          Pvt. Hurst was one of the 40 Shelby county boys who enlisted in Battery E in March, 1917, when it was evident that this country would not continue long at peace with Germany.  He was a resident of this county four years prior to his enlistment and worked on the farm of  Mrs. Pearl Lux,  near Prescott, 2-1/2 years previous to joining the army.  He was a member of the St. Vincent Catholic church and a young man who was liked by all who knew him.
          In service Bernard held the friendship of every member of his battery and served on the same gun crew with Paul Cross, whose body was laid to rest in Forest Hill cemetery, Memorial Day.  Paul Cross was killed instantly when the gun at which they were on duty exploded and Bernard Hurst died on the way to a hospital in the rear of the line.
          As did more than 40 other boys who enlisted from Shelby county and gave up their lives in the World war, Bernard was a good soldier and fought that we might enjoy the liberties which are now our pleasures.  It would indeed be fitting for a large number of local persons to attend the funeral and show the respect of Shelby county for the services rendered.

FLORAL  TRIBUTE
FOR  BERNARD  HURST
----------
(From Thursday's Daily.)
          As a tribute to  Bernard Hurst,  member of Battery E, 150th field artillery, who was killed in France and whose body will be laid to rest, Friday morning at Oldenburg, Ind., the business men of this city, thru  Pete Schaeffer,  chairman of the flower fund, sent a beautiful American flag floral piece to the home of the deceased soldier's mother at Oldenburg.  Bernard enlisted from this county and lived here for more than four years previous to his enlistment.  The flag of flowers is indeed a showing of appreciation of Shelbyville's business and professional men for the service rendered by Private Hurst.
          A number of local people, including former members of Battery E, will be present for the funeral services, which will be held tomorrow morning at the Oldenburg Catholic church.
          Mrs. Pearl Lux,  of near Prescott, on whose farm Bernard worked previous to enlisting, left today for Oldenburg taking with her the floral offering of the local merchants.

          The funeral of  Mrs. [Theresa] Hurst  occurred at the Catholic church on March 31, the priest of St. Vincent church officiating.  At the grave a serious accident was barely avoided.  As the casket was being lowered into the grave the side caved in and the casket turned sideways against the grave, two or three men barely escaped being caught under the casket.
