Funeral For
   Child Victim
       Of Drowning

     Funeral services for Ray Eugene Williams, two-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Williams of the Sunny Slope district who was drowned Friday morning, were conducted Sunday afternoon from the Case funeral home with Rev. Murphy of Boise in charge.  Interment was made in the Canyon Hill cemetery.
     The baby was drowned in a barrel of water in the door-yard of his home, when he slipped and fell head first into the barrel.  The body was discovered by his mother, when she came out of the house to look for the child whom she had left playing in the yard only a short time before.
     Mr. and Mrs. Williams applied artificial respiration until Dr. S. B. Dudley arrived.  After working with the child, the doctor declared that life was extinct.
