the Service. He was connected with the department at Washington up to the
time he was 21 yars of age, when he contracted tuberculosis adn was transferred
from the Capital to Rice in 1909, where he has reamined ever since.
"Cooley was born in Montana and was half Arapahoe and
"Dr. J. S. Perkins, head of the schools at Rice, accompanied
the remains to this city."
Guy was graduated from Carlisle in 1909, and was one of
the brightest students in the class, as well as one of the best beloved,
owing to his sunny disposition and clean habits; also for his gentlemanly
manners, of which the whole school were justly proud. A large circle of
friends, here and elsewhere, are mourning over his untimely death.
