Caddo Boy is Killed in Lawton Accident
Otis L. Brentlinger, 23 years old, was killed almost instantly late last Thursday night in an accident at the intersection of 6th and D. streets in Lawton, Oklahoma. Death came one hour after the accident at the base hospital at Fort Sill.
Deceased was riding his motorcycle in company with Private Murray W. Davis and in rounding the corner struck the automobile which was occupied by two Lawton women. Davis received a fractured left arm and numerous bruise but will recover from his injuries. The two women were severely shaken up and bruised, but will likewise recover. The motorcycle was demolished and the automobile was considerably damaged.
Deceased was a private in Battery A, 18th Field Artillery stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma having enlisted with the organization in August of 1931. The body was brought to Caddo on Sunday morning following and was accompanied by Sergeant Glen Drumford, instrument sergeant of the battery with which the deceased was a member. The funeral was held Monday afternoon at the Baptist church with a military funeral being held at the cemetery with a firing squad furnished by Company E, 180th Infantry, stationed in Durant and which Company is commanded by Captain Don Atkinson. The firing squad was composed of the following men of that company: Sergeant Jess Freeman, Corporals: Mitchell Nelson, A. J. Price, Bugler Paul Stephenson and Privates Richard Tinkler, A. Harper, W. M. Nelson, J. E. Franklin, and Clay Davault. The funeral was in charge of Rev. Lee Smith and assisted by Rev. S. E. Henderson pastor of the Methodist Church.
Deceased is survived by his parent, Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Brentlinger, two brothers, Elmer of Hobbs, N. M. and Dean of California; six sisters, Mrs. V. J. Allen of Gladewater, Texas; Mrs. Virgil Castellow of Caddo; Mrs. Buster Whitehead of Caddo; Mrs. James Hogan of Caddo; Mrs. Leslie Blanton of Caddo; and Miss Nina Brentlinger of Caddo. All were present at the funeral with the exception of Dean who was unable to reach here in time to attend the obsequies.
Otis was better known in Caddo by “Brownie” and the large crowd in attendance at the funeral was proof of the esteem in which he was held. We join the many friends of the family in extending to the surviving relatives our deepest sympathy and condolence.

Miss Zuleika Boland Becomes Bride of Private Ray Pace
Miss Zuleika Elizabeth Boland, daughter of Mr. John L. Boland of Caddo, became the bride of Private Ray Pace, son of Mrs. R. L. Pace, also of Caddo, in a simple but impressive ceremony in the home of the bride Sunday evening at 7 o’clock. The Reverend Father Gerard Nathe of St. Gregory’s college, Shawnee, performed the rites before only a few friends and relatives.
The vows were exchanged before an altar improvised before a bay window. Picardy gladioli in altar baskets as well as the floor candelabra banked the altar on either side.
Preceding the ceremony, Mrs. Troy Reed of Durant, accompanied by Miss Marguerite Harral also of Durant, sang “Because” by D’Hardelot and “Ava Maria” by Schubert. As Mrs. Reed sang Miss Myra Jean Guthrie of Caddo and Mr. Jack Turnbull of Norman lighted the candles. Mrs. W. Horace Power, sister of the bride, played the traditional “Bridal Chorus” from Lohengrin by Wagner for the processional and followed the ceremony with Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March”.
The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a dressmaker suit of blue with navy accessories. Her bouquet was of call lilies. The maid of honor, Miss Margarette Boland, sister of the bride, wore a two-piece dress of dusty pink with black accessories and carried deep pink roses.
Mr. Bruce Pace of Ft. Smith Arkansas, brother of the bridegroom was best man. Mr. Pace and Mr. Boland wore white carnation boutonnieres.
Following the wedding the guests were invited into the dining room where Private and Mrs. Pace cut the first pieces of wedding cake. The refreshment table was laid with white linen. The all white centerpiece was of gladioli, snap dragons, and carnations in a crystal bowl and was set with crystal candlesticks on either side. Miss Estelle Boland of St. Louis and Mrs. Mary Turnbull of Norman, aunt of the bride, presided at the refreshment table while Mrs. Power cut the cake. Assisting in the dining room were Misses Myra Jan Guthrie, Margarette Boland, and Mrs. Bruce Pace. Miss May Lee Turnbull of Norman was in charge of the guest book.
Following the reception Private and Mrs. Pace left for a brief wedding rip in Arkansas. Mrs. Pace’s corsage for travel was of gardenias.
