Simple Rites for Cobb
Last Only 10 Minutes,
Heed His Instructions
' By the Associated Press.
, NEW YORK. Mar. 14.—Simple
I services requiring only 10 minutes
;were conducted in a funeral home
here yesterday for Irvin S. Cobb,
| author and humorist, who died last
j Friday.
The services followed closely his
| burial instructions, except there
| was a profusion of flowers despite
| his wish that there be none and
; that the relatives and friends at
tending failed to heed his injunction
to “keep it cheerful.”
i Dr. John Sutherland Bonnell, pas
l tor of the Fifth Avenue Presby
! terian Church w’hich Mr. Cobb at
tended, read the Lord's Prayer, the
23d Psalm and the first stanzas of
| Robert Louis Stevenson’s "Home
; Is the Sailor.”
“Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” and
“Deep River” were played by Or
ganist Harry Gilbert, a native of
Mr. Cobb's birthplace, Paducah,
Ky„ where memorial services will
be conducted later.
Attending the services were Mr.
Cobb's widow, Mrs. Laura Spencer
Baker Cobb; his sister, Mrs. Hewitt
Howland; his wife's sister, Mrs. Bet
ty Blun, and several score persons
prominent in business, theatrical
and writing circles.
Among them were Grantland Rice,
sports writer and close friend of
Mr. Cobb; Harry Hershfield, Rube
Goldberg, Fred Stone, Roland
Young, Fannie Hurst, Maj. Edward
G. Bowes: Percy Johnson, president
of the Chemical National Bank;
Thomas J. Watson, president of the
International Business Machines
Corp., and Edward Johnson, presi
dent of the Metropolitan Opera Co.
Simple Rites for Cobb.
PADUCAH, Ky„ Mar. 14 OP).—
Friends of Irvin S. Cobb met here
yesterday and made tentative plans
for solicitation of funds for a memo
rial to the late humorist.
The memorial probably will be a
Cobb museum, housing furnishings
from the Cobb homestead here;
manuscripts of his stories and let
ters and other mementoes of the
Paducah writer.
