Long-Time Freeman Instructor Dies

Freeman, S. D. — Ben P. Waltner, 79, long-time science instructor at Freeman Junior College and former registrar and dean of the college, died at the hospital here May 10, about an hour after sustaining injuries in a fall at his home. He had suffered serious injuries in a highway accident near Moundridge, Kan. about a year ago, from which he had not fully recovered.

Funeral services were held Friday afternoon at the Salem Mennonite Church near here.

A native of this community, Mr. Waltner attended the Freeman Academy, Yankton College, South Dakota and Iowa state colleges, receiving the M.A degree.

After teaching in public schools he joined the faculty of Freeman Junior College as instructor of agriculture in 1919. He continued with the college here until his retirement, serving as instructor in science, as registrar and later dean for a number of years. He was acting president of the school in 1938-39.
