Lawrence Hoyt, O.S.B., pastor. Burial was in Calvary Cemetery. Mr. Hart who was engaged in the shoe repair business here for several decades was a member of the firm of Metrailer & Hart. He also was a member of the Andrew Byrne Assembly Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus, Little Rock Council No. 812, Knights of Col- umbus and St. Joseph's Society. Eight priests were present in the sanctuary, and the church was filled to capacity for the final obsequies. Father Hoyt in his funeral ser- mon spoke of Mr. Hart as an ex- emplary Catholic, a loving father and devoted husband. He was universally liked, because his life was an open book. In very appropriate words, Father Hoyt comforted the fam- ily and friends of the deceased. But it was a sermon on Faith, an appropriate sermon vn that Faith which is lived so completely in his family. It is mutual sympathy that is appreciated in time of sorrow, the pastor said, but that consolation See Mr. HART on page 8 Theater, Will Be Church, Bars 'C' Movie ChiCago.
