  4. <b>Mr. M. K. Lewis, Stricken Ill as War Nurse, Dies
    Mrs. Margaret K Lewis, former World war nurse and widow of the late Dr. LeRoy K Lewis, formerly of New York, died at the home of her sister, Mrs. Samuel M McDonald, 621 Rex St., at 10 o'clock Thursday night after a protracted illness which had extended from the time of the end of the war. During the war and later in the United States Veterans' Bureau and a member of the army nurse corps she contracted disabilities which resulted in her becoming bedfast during January 1924. She had remained so since that time.
    Over worked and resultant exhaustion during the influenza epidemic and later while nursing the maimed and sick veterans returned from the battlefields of Europe, combined with the horror of the awful sights she hourly witnessed while at her work, gradually broke down her health to an irreparable point.
    Know as Author Dr. and Mrs. Lewis were the founders of the Lewis hospital and nurses training school of Bay City, Mich. They also were the authors of several widely circulated books on medical subjects and nursing. They lived here from 1906 to 1910.
    Mrs. Lewis was widely known throughout this vicinity, where she practiced before and after her war service.
    She is survived by eight brothers and sisters in Michigan and New York beside her sister here, Mrs. Mc Donald, with whom she had resided since 1915.
    She was born in Tonawanda, N.Y., and married to Dr Lewis at Niagara Falls. She was a member of First Methodist church, with which she has been affiliated since childhood.
    Rev. A. E. Monger, of that church, will officiate at her funeral, which will be held at the home at 2:30 o'clock Monday afternoon. Burial will be in Riverview cemetery beside the body of her husband. The funeral will be of military color, conducted by members of the firing squad of the American Legion. Doctors of the city, to be selected later, will act as pallbearers.

    American Legion Post Conducts Services at Grave in Riverview Cemetery
    A military funeral conducted by the Veterans of the World war from the American Legion post No. 50, was held Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock for Mrs. Margaret Lewis, in River view cemetery.
    South Bend physicians who served in the World war acted as pallbearers. The colors of the post were carried by a uniformed Legionnaire, and taps were wounded by LT. E. A. Schleuder. At the request of the family, a final volley was not fired, but the services were closed with the echo of taps sounded by a trumpeter from the Cilver Military academy.
    Mrs. Lewis was buried in the uniform which she wore while in service in veterans' hospitals of Dayton. O., Pittsburg and Algiers, La., Rev Albert E. Monger of the First Methodist church, red the civilian services and the post chaplain conducted the military services.
    Commander Robert H. Swintzhad requested that all Legionnaires meet at the Legion Memorial home, 411 W. Wayne St., at 1:30, to attend the services in a body. National headquarters of the American Legion has taken note of Mrs. Lewis passing, and because this is the first time in the history of the organization that the military service has been tendered a member of the Army Nurse Corps, has arranged for the recording of the funeral through motion pictures. These were taken by the Fox Film Corp., Pathe and I the Hearst Syndicate.
    The pallbearers were Dr. J. S. Sprague, Dr. P. C. Traver and W. C. Farnham, representing the army, and VJ. E. Harman, J. A. Dugan and H.H. Slominski, representing the naval branch of the service.
