He was 78 years old. ’ < The final rites were attended by a gathering of citizens out-of-town visitors who filled the main audP tortum. balcony and much of the Sunday school assembly quarters if) the church. Prof. Alderman was Ji past grand master of the Masons of North Carolina, and held other high offices in various branches of the fra ternity. and prominent Masdns from Henderson. Oxford, Warrcnton. ahd many other sections of the State at tended. The Masonic Grand-Lodge of ficials were in charge of the services at the cemetery. . * i‘ The services at the; church Opened with an organ prelude.

Dr. Ellis read an appreciation of Prof. Alderman, after which the hymn. "Jerusalem the Golden" was sung by the choir and congregation. M iss Dorothy Jones, church organist, accompanied for the music. All schools of the city suspended at noon for the remainder of the day out of respect for Prof. Alderman, who until eight years ago had been for 25 years superintendent of the city schools. He was also twice a State senator from this district, ifi 1925 and 1929. Many of the teachers and pupils of the schools attended the services, as did citizens generally from all demoninations and all walks of life. "Again the sword of the angel of death has flashed over the First Bap tist church, and has sheathed itself in its heart. "Some years ago the church decided to honor four of its older deacons by making them deacons for life, an honor which had never before been conferred by the Church. They chose brethren W. B. Daniel. Thomas M. Pittman, Joseph S. Royster and J. T. Alderman, and today the last of the four has laid down his office. "We could ill afford to lose any of them. Each had his individual con tribution to the life of the Church. One a fund of practical common sense and an unfailing Christian testi mony; one a brilliant inteliect. and a devotion to the fundamental prin ciples of the Baptist faith; one a beautifully radiant Christian experi ence and a wealth of practical ser vice; one a love for Baptist history ISfettitersamSatlg Uispafrl; and the preservation of its records, and withal a character which was uni versally beloved and greatly esteemed. Few Churches have been blessed with a more loyal or consecrated Board of Deacons and today we witness the translation of the last of the quar tette. Living a long and pre-eminent ly useful life, reaching out far be yond bis Church into the life of the State, into the ranks of one of the most noble secret orders, into the realm of education, into the life of the community in which he lived; he has been beloved with an affection experienced by very few. Honored by his peers, trusted by his friends, loved by all young people, with never an enemy in life, nor one to whisper a detracting word, he has passed hence leaving a record which might weH be envied by any man or woman lin ing. - • "It is one thing to be efected to high place in the nation or in the State; to have ones name a house hold word during ones administra tion; then to suffer such an eclipse that ones very name can be forgotten. It is another to live as Mr. Alderman lived leaving a name which will never be forgotten as long as one of this generation lives. Whatever our friend touched he beautified. He had a beautiful mind, clear as crystal, com prehensive and pure. He saw the best in everybody and looked for the best in everything. To him life had no sombre robes, it was always bright. He loved his church supremely, and gave it the best he had. He was a constant inspiration to his Pastor, appreciating his ministry with too great a generosity. He loved the choir who never had a more appreciative listener. On the Board of Deacons he was invaluable in council, helpful in suggestion and enthusiastic in ser vice, .holding high the inherent demo cracy of the Baptist faith. To him the voice of the Church in formal assem bly carried unquestioned authority, and he never hesitated to do anything the Church asked him to do. In the Sunday School his presence was an inspiration. He was able and always wHling to lead in prayer and was often called on for that holy office. His advice was freely sought and graciously given. He was glad to act anywhere as substitute teacher and none who sat at his feet went away disappointed. He was a most regular attendant at public worship, coming when he ought to have rested at home, but mindful of his influence re fusing to consider himself if the Church needed him. So long as he was able he attended the mid-week prayer service, and never failed to take part in the prayers and the testimonies. "iNo one can tell how we shall miss him. his serene faith, his inherent goodness, the beauty and brightness of his life, his unfeigned love for the children. His going leaves a place which can never be filled. We have spoken of his place in the Baptist Church; others can speak of his place in the councils of the State; in the world of education; in iiie realm of Masonry. Our hearts go out to his beloved partner in life who has ever been his inspiration. Wc offer her the tribute of our love and devotion, and commend her to the care of Him who has promised to be a "Husband to the widow." To his daughter and son we offer our sincere sympathy and our gratitude for the memory of such a husband, father, grandfather and friend."
