W. T. Blount

W. T. Blount, one of Yell Counties most prominent men, a resident of Fourche Valley since about 1907, died in a hospital in Little Rock, April 14. Services were held in the Plainview Methodist Church at 2 p.m., Tuesday, April 15, by Rev. Virgil Hanks assisted by Rev. J. V. Chandler. Burial was in the New Bethel cemetery.

Mr. Blount is survived by his wife, Mrs. Lou Norman Blount.

A native of Meriweather county, Georgia, he moved to Stephens when four. He was graduated from Hendrix College and taught at Rover when that town was considered to have the best school in Yell County, when J. H. Reynolds, now president of Hendrix College, held a summer institute at Rover. Mr. Blount came to Plainview from the Bank of Ola and was cashier of the Bank of Plainview 15 years, when he resigned because of leakage of the heart, which eventually caused his death.

When at Rover, he entered into a partnership with Mr. W. B. Clement and the firm of Clement and Blount was known all over that county. Later Mr. Blount bought in the mercantile firm at Plainview that was started by the late R. T. Compton, father of Sheriff Compton, and Bob Caviness, where later W. B. Clement joined him and that firm became the wonder of the county, doing 5300,000.00 worth of business in a year.

Mr. Blount's activities included being Yell County Road Commissioner of District 1; membership in Scottish Rite Masonic Lodge, Methodist Church, partnership with Bill Baldwin in implement business at Russellville, Conway, and Ft. Smith and many other activities.

Many good things can be said by this admirer of this great man, but better than anything we know is the declaration reported as said Tuesday, by his almost life time partner, W. B. Clement: "We went thru good times and bad, had the ups and downs of business and never passed a cross word."

Judy Bly

Ola Girl Killed by Hit-And-Run Driver

Judy Bly, 14, of Ola was killed by a hit-and-run driver at about 8:15 Wednesday night as she and a sister-in-law, Donna Bly, 17, were walking north on Highway 7 about one-half mile north of Ola.

State Trooper Charles Brooks and Sheriff Herman McCormick, who investigated, said that the car which hit the girl was going north at a high rate of speed and that the girl's body landed 181 feet from where it was struck by the car. Donna's left hand was hit by the car.

Sheriff Herman McConnick said that two men were apprehended at about midnight near Paris. They had been driving a white station wagon which was seen by a woman near the scene of the accident.

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Bill Bob Bullock said Thursday morning that the driver of the car was Rev. Stephen Eckart, 37, and that a passenger of the car was Rev. Brendan McGuire. Both are Catholic priests who teach at Subiaco Abbey & Academy. Bullock said information regarding charges would be released later.

Coroner Glenn Bailey said that a doctor examined the girl and that she apparently had died instantly. She was the daughter of Mrs. Clarence Bly of Ola and was a student in the Ola School.
