Despite the unusual heat many friends and relatives gathered here Sunday afternoon to attend the funeral of Lieut. Chas. Richard Long, who was killed in France April 20, 1918 and whose body arrived here last week. Services were held at the Presbyterian church at 2:30 under the auspices of the American legion, assisted by the pastor, Rev. T.E. McSpadden. Charles Richard Long was born August 27, 1891 at Harrison, Ark. The family later moved to Oklahoma and then came to Lowell in 1904 where the parents, M.P. Long and wife, still reside. The deceased graduated from the St. Louis College of Physicians and Surgeons in May 1916 and entered the railroad hospital at Sedalia, Mo. He enlisted in May 1917 and in September was sent to England and assigned to one of the large base hospitals at Leicester. In the spring he was transferred to France and was serving with the British army at Amiens when he was killed April 20, 1918 as he returned from a front line first aid station. He is survived by the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. J.M. Thompson, Broken Bow, Okla.; W.E. Long, Neosho, Mo.; J.W. Long, Okemah, Okla.; Mrs. J.C. White, McAlester, Okla.; Mrs. R.C.
