K. of C. Mourns the
Passing of its Beloved
Knight, Father Flanagan

    The death of Father Flanagan in Germany on May 14, cost Omaha Council its dearest and best known member
    Omaha Council joins humbly in the expressions of sorrow and berevement which have come to Boys Town from the leading figures of all walks of American life.  Omaha Council joins them humbly but with great pride for it knows that Father Flanagan joined the Knights of Columbus in a class of the Omaha Council thirty-five years ago on May 18, 1913.
    Omaha Council is greatful to God for the opportunity it had of seeing and knowing and loving so great a man.  We pray that God may raise up another such man so that Boys will have another friend and champion.
