Funeral Of Survivor Of Titanic Disaster Is Held This Afternoon

The drowning of Oscar Palmquist, thirty-seven, in the reserve reservoir of Beardsley Park, last week, was purely an accident, in the belief of police, who had been searching for him since his disappearance on March 27th.
   No marks of foul play were found on his body, when it was discovered floating in the reservoir and police believe that he fell into the water, while taking a walk in the park. No inquest will be made into his death by Coroner John J. Phelan, it was announced today.
   Funeral services for Palmquist, who was one of the few survivors of the Titanic disaster in the North Atlantic in 1912, will be held this afternoon from the funeral parlors of T. E. Larsen, 1485 Wood Avenue at two o'clock. Rev. A. J. Okerblom, pastor of the Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Salem church, will officiate. Burial will be in Mountain Grove Cemetery.
