salesman for one of the major paper supply houses and for 41 years called on newspapers 
throughout the Dakotas and Minnesota. He retired just a little less than 4 years ago at 
the age of 86. 

For years he drove a 1937 Plymouth in which the engine was replaced four times before 
he traded for a newer model shortly before quitting the road He engaged in the printing 
and publishing business for many years before going on the road. 

Ferrell was the envy of his competitors. Many times, when making his regular calls, 
seeing a publisher in distress for help, he would take off his coat, go to work thru the 
day or two and then be on his way. Needless to say, Ferrell 's customers were untouchable 
no matter how efficient or what selling techniques the competing salesman would use. 

Bert passed away Oct. 5th at the age of 90.

NEWS and VIEWS: ... The Rev. Charles L. Bryan, pastor of the Methodist Churches of 
Fairmount and LaMars, was perhaps, unusual in his profession in that he kept up the reg- 
ular work of his calling in spite of the fact he was almost totally blind. 

Rev. Bryan passed away last Saturday evening at the youthful age of 31. He had ser- 
ved LaMars since 1957. Previously he was pastor at Turtle Lake and McClusky. The young 
pastor preached his last sermon Thanksgiving morning at the Fairmount Church. 

The high regard and respect for Rev. Bryan, in spite of his short residency in Fair- 
mount, was attested by overflow of people of all denominations who attended his funeral 
there last Tuesday morning. 

Although his vision had always been poor, it wasn't until three years ago that he was 
unable to do any reading in order to prepare his sermons. He had what his parishioners 
described as "side vision," and was able only to distinguish people and make his way 
around the community. 

Rev. Bryan's official duties and activities in the church were all given from memory. 
Sermons, order of service, special prayers, funerals, baptisms and every event he had to 
rely upon his memory for the conduction and leadership in his congregations. 

(U-8) 



The guiding hand and helpmate in all of his activities was his wife, Mary, who read 
to him and into a tape recorder many times in order that he could prepare his sermons. She 
is also an instructor in the Fairmount School. One of the projects of the Youth Fellowship 
was reading to their pastor during their spare time as well as its members taking turns 
reading the scripture at the regular Sunday services. 

The Bryans's have one child a Korean orphan adopted a few years ago. Parishioners 

of Fairmount and La Mars, as well as others in the Fairmount community, are much richer 
spiritually, because of one in their midst, gave so much to the community in spite of what 
seemed almost insurmountable odds. 

Most applicable are the words of Him who sitteth as the Judge Supreme, "Well done 
thy good and faithful servant."

LA MARS YOUTH, 17, DIES SATURDAY 
Richard Milton Peterson Luick, 17, passed away at his home in the LaMars community 
Saturday afternoon, Feb. 2nd at about 6 PM. Death was apparently due to a combination of 
a blow to the head when he tripped and fell, and heart failure. 

He was the son of Mrs. Gordon Luick and the late Richard Peterson. Mr. Peterson was 
a member of the United States Navy and was killed in action at sea before Richard's birth.

ivities at Aberdeen, SD. He was also a member of the La Mars Seabees 4-H Club. 

On June 8th, 1961, Richard underwent major heart surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in 
Minneapolis for he was born with a defective heart. This surgery required the latest tech- 
niques, using the artifical heart to route the blood around the natural heart while it was 
repaired. He recovered very nicely and since that time appeared to be in good health. 

He leaves to mourn, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Luick, five sisters and four bro- 
thers, Claudia, Kathy, Gordon, Christine, Karla, Carol, Anthony, Larry and Theodore. Two
