Minnie L. Williams

MRS. WAL WILLIAMS, COUNTY'S SECOND WOMAN SHERIFF, DIES

(Special to the Duncan Banner)

Marlow - Mrs. Minnie L. Williams, 70, widow of former Sheriff Wal Williams who was killed May 13, 1930, in a gun fight with bank robbers, and herself a former sheriff of Stephens county, died at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the home of her husband's sister, Mrs. Fred Vaught.

Mrs. Williams had been ill for about four weeks. She moved from the home near Sterling, where she lived several years, to the Vaught home in Marlow about a month ago.

Mrs. Williams was born in Illinois. She came from El Dorado, Kan., to Marlow in 1901. She was a member of the Marlow First Christian Church.

Sheriff Williams took office in 1929, J. W. Marshall, former county attorney, said. On May 13, 1930, he was fatally wounded near Highway 29 and U. S. 81 in a gun fight with the Cunningham brothers, sought for a filling station robbery in which I. B. Gossett, Duncan policeman, was seriously wounded. Several other officers took part in the fight. A monument to Williams was erected near the spot several years ago.

Mrs. Williams, following her husband's death, was appointed by the county commissioners to fill our her husband's unexpired term, becoming the second woman sheriff in Stephens county. Mrs. Bill Bates, who husband died in office, also previously had filled out an unexpired term.

Surviving Mrs. Williams was a son, Don E. Williams of Fairbanks, Alaska; a granddaughter, Diana Williams, Los Angeles, Calif.; two sisters, Mrs. Maggie Towell and Mrs. Amy Bailey of Sterling, and a brother, Charles Powers, Ventura, Calif.

Efforts to communicate with the son failed yesterday. It was believed that he might be on his way to Marlow. Unless some word is received from him, funeral services, directed by the Steele Funeral Home, probably will be held at the Marlow First Christian Church at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow. Burial will be in the Marlow Cemetery.

TODAY'S COMMENTS

DUNCAN DOESN'T TAKE A BACK seat to any other municipality in being a good business town. We could extend congratulations to Lawton, for a splendid record, and law our record right along beside Lawton for comparison

* * *

Lawton's year-end volume of retail sales, as measured by the Oklahoma Tax Commissioner's reports, was something of a record. There was a tremendous gain over a year ago, and Lawton moved into fifth place in the state in volume.

* * *

Duncan's year-end volume, the same source indicated, showed a 78 percent increase over the year before, which was nearly seven times greater than the average increase for the state at large. Duncan moved into 14th place.

* * *

Fourteenth place in the state is considerably better than it appears, when Duncan residents take a second glance at the situation. Duncan was 22nd in population, on the 1940 census figures, and was 14th in retail sales volume. Lawton was the 6th city in Oklahoma in population, and 5th in sales volume.

* * *

In a year's time, Lawton moved from 10th to 5th place in sales volume, and Duncan from 16th to 14th. Lawton's increase was remarkable, Duncan's was consistent and sustained in a bracket far ahead of its population rank. We surpass each month, the sales volume of five to eight cities larger than Duncan. And we don't believe there is another Oklahoma municipality which can claim a record as good as that.
