CONRAD E. PATZER PROF. C.E. PATZER A life-time of activity devoted to the betterment and advancement of educational standards in Wisconsin was brought to a close at Milwaukee yesterday with the sudden, unexpected death of Professor C.E. Patzer. (Photo) From the time he attanded the schools of Two Rivers until he reached an apex of an unusual career against odds seemingly overwhelming, Professor Patzer was an outstanding leader in educational circles of the state and many of the recent reforms in the system of teaching and in the standards of the profession are directly chargeable to him. Largely self-taught, the professor-author was regarded as one of the outstanding authorities among pedagogues of Wisconsin. Outstanding accomplishments in his campaign to raise the standards of the profession of which he was a shining example include his nine years of activity as chairman of the legislative committee of the state teachers' colleges, his championing of the rural normal schools for county teachers and his successful direction of the law creating the county normals and the state education law of 1912. As late as 1930, Mr. Patzer appeared before the Wisconsin legislature to urge the county boards of education succeed to the functions and duties of district boards which he declared to be overlapping and in contra- vention of the state's motto of "Forward." He was a notable authority on rural education and in recent years was an active advocate of reforms in the system of teacher-training at the University of Wisconsin. A contributor to national magazines on educational subjects, Mr. Putzer described the results of his researches in a book entitled "Public Education in Wisconsin" and he was also the author of several text books on methods of instruction. He was a native of Manitowoc county, born in the city of Two Rivers and spending much of his early manhood in Manitowoc county-a county to which he returns in death. He will be buried Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the home of his nephew, Max Rahr, Jr., at 1623 Clark street. Manitowoc Hearld News, Manitowoc, Wis.

WALTER PAULSENE / POLZIEN HUSHED IN LAST SLEEP Treacherous Waters of the River Claim Another Young Life WALTER POLZIEN, AGED 22 Unable to Swim He Gets Beyond His Depth and Drowns Before Eyes of a Friend—A Sad Occurrence Beneath the treacherous waters another young life has been hushed into the last long sleep and an aged father’s heart has been crushed in the robbery of its most precious possession by the relentless river, which bore his cherished son from the pleasures of life into the mysteries of the great unknown hereafter. Walter Polzien, a well known young man of the city, was the victim of the fatality which occurred Sunday afternoon. Polzien and a friend, Fred Thurston, had, with a party of friends, been spending several hours in a grove near the cemetery and late in the day decided to take a bath in the river. Polzien was unable to swim, but his friend was not aware of this fact, having never been informed. Thurston entered the water first and enjoyed the sport for some time before Polzien ventured to wade out. The other left the water soon after the young man entered and proceeded to dress himself while watching his friend splashing about. It is thought that Polzien ventured beyond his depth for a of a sudden he disappeared and although Thurston waited some time the bather failed to appear and it became evident that something was amiss. It was about six o’clock in the evening and Thurston at once reported the matter at police headquarters. Officer Sniffins with assistance, recovered the body at about 8:25 and it was carried to the home, but a short distance from where the sad happening occurred. Coroner Luhman viewed the remains and justice H.L. Markham empanelled the following jury: E.L. Chloupek, Gustave Fraze, Jos. Wall, Jos. Stanchek, W.F. Brandt and F. Heyroth. The inquest was adjourned until 8 o’clock this morning at which time the verdict returned was “That he came to death by accidental drowning in the Manitowoc river, near Evergreen cemetery, on August 5, 1900 at about 6 o’clock.” At the inquest a number of witnesses were sworn and it developed that Polzien and Thurston had been together all afternoon. They had been drinking some, but neither was under the influence of liquor. Polzien was not a drinking man in the usual acceptance of the term. He had a desire to go bathing all day and when he finally did, the result was the fatality chronicled above. Thurston testified that at first when Polzien failed to appear he believed that he was swimming under water, but the father of the boy stated that his son was unable to swim. The unfortunate young man was a son of August Polzien and was 22 years of age. He was an industrious and hard worker, the mainstay in the support of his father on whom the shock of sudden death falls heavily, all the more so in that it is little more than three months ago that the boy’s mother was laid to rest in Evergreen cemetery. Besides the father, one brother and two sisters survive to mourn him. The sisters are Mrs. Louis Olson, of this city, and Mrs. George La Counte, of Forest Junction. The funeral will be held from the late home tomorrow afternoon.

These included the pioneering of assembly warehouses with cold storage facilities at strategic locations throughout Wisconsin. This provided shippers with factory inspection service and closer contacts in general. The company was purchased by Swift and Co. in 1948, becoming a division of that company.

WALTER PAVLOWICH KILLED AS CAR PLUNGES FROM BRIDGE W. PAVLOWICH MEETS DEATH THIS MORNING Misses Curve at Twenty-first Street Bridge and Plunges to River Bottom Missing the turn at the approach of the Twenty-first street bridge while en route to his home shortly after 3 o'clock this morning, Walter Pavlowich, 40-year-old local soft drink establishment owner, and the father of four children, plunged to his death when his automobile went throught the flimsy protective railing and dropped into the river, about 20 feet below. Death is believed to have been practically instantaneous and may have been caused by the blow which he sustained when the car went into the river or may have been caused by drowning. Frank and Henry Pozorski, South side residents, were fishing at the bridge at the time and summoned police aid and other help but it was nearly an hour before Pavlowich could be removed from his automobile, part of which was above the surface at the time as the water is extremely shallow at the point. In order to remove the man from the car it was necessary to break a window and release him in that manner. Was En Route Home Pavlowich, a resident of Manitowoc for about six years following his removal from Green Bay, was employed at the shipyards prior to his assuming management of the former Wergin establishemnt at 1502 Madison street on July 1 of last year. He had been on duty at his place last night and after closing early this morning was on his way home when the fatal accident occurred. He was driving north and had barely reached the south approach of the bridge when he either failed to remember the curve or did not see it and continued on the straight route to the west. About 20 feet of protective railing was torn away as the car plunged over the side of the bridge to land on its four wheels in the river below. The rear end of the car was above the water and Pavlowich, had he not apparently been knocked unconscious or been killed in the fall, would have been able to save himself by getting into the rear of the car. May Have Died in Fall Presence of a scar on the forehead of Pavlowich led to the belief that the man may have been killed in his fall and did not meet his death by drowning. Authorities who worked to recover the man's body realized that it would be impossible to restore life and the man was declared to be dead when Coroner W.G. Kemper arrived at the scene shortly after four o'clock. No inquest into the cause of death will be conducted by the county authorities as the case was obviously an accident. Born in Kewaunee County Pavlowich was born in Kewaukee county on March 10, 1891 and moved to Manitowoc six yars ago. Immediate survivors include his widow, nee Priscilla Bomski; four children Norbert, Alvin, Clifford and Arnold, all at home; four brothers, Victor in S. Dakota; Wencil, Adam and Jack of Green Bay; a sister, Mrs. Martha Kluceski, Green Bay and his father Michael Pavlowich of Green Bay. Funeral services will be held from the Sacred Heart church Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock after private services at the Shimek and Schwartz Mortuary on N. Eighth street and burial will be at Evergreen cemetery. The funeral home will be opened between the hours of 2 and 5 p.m. and 7 and 9 p.m. Sunday and Monday to permit friends to view the remains.
