S6 Obituary, "SUICIDE OF A. FOULKE AT ARCADIA, WED.", Noblesville Daily Ledger, Thursday, 7 June 1934, page 1. Acc000877/Doc0783.pdf

Garage ad Filling Station Man Blew Off Top of His Head
Friends Say Deed Was the Result of Financial Troubles

Arthur Foulke, aged forty, committed suicide at his home in Arcadia, Wednesday afternoon, by shooting himself with a shotgun. The top of his head was blown off and it is evident that he died instantly. No funeral arrangements have been made but it is thought that the services will be held Friday afternoon.

It is not known when the deed was committed but he is believed to have taken his life shortly after one o'clock in the afternoon soon after leaving the garage of Foulke & Long, he being a partner in the firm.

The wife and daughter, Helen, aged twelve, left the home in the car shortly after noon to go to Indianapolis and did not return until late in the evening. They left dinner on the table for Mr. Foulke. William Odle, employed in the Ledger office, was in Arcadia shortly after 5 o'clock on business and was told by some boys that Foulke was lying on the floor of his home. He could find no one about the town who had seen him since about noon. Meeting Dr. E.V. Shockney on the street, Odle, who by this time suspected something was wrong, asked the doctor to accompany him to the Foulke home and they found the body in the screened porch in the rear of the house. Brains were scattered over the floor but the gun was still between the legs of the deceased, indicating that he had held it there when he fired the fatal shot. The load from the gun had also broken glass in the rear door.

It is said that the suicide was the result of financial worries. At least several Arcadia friends of the family say that he had talked to them during recent weeks about his financial condition.

Mr. Foulke has been associated with Elmer Long in a garage and filling station business in Arcadia for several years and he was always held in high esteem by all.

He served three years as treasurer of the Lions Club and was re-elected recently.

The deceased was born on the Foulke homestead five miles west of Cicero, February 8, 1894, being the son of George and Frances (Underwood) Foulke and spent most of his life in that community until his marriage to Miss Inez Everman in May, 1920. A year following their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Foulke moved to Arcadia and have since resided there. He is survived by his mother, who spent the past winter in his home and who is in feeble health; the widow and daughter; a half brother Alvin Foulke, living near Cicero, and three sisters, Grace Robbins, who resides on the home farm where the mother is now living; Mrs. Alice Phillips, near Sheridan, and Mrs. Sarah Ross, residing on the Range Line Road.

It was announced late Thursday afternoon that the funeral will be held at the home at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon and interment will take place in the Sheridan cemetery. The masons will be in charge. Friends may call at the residence to view the body at anytime until the hour of the services. Raymond Shaffer is in charge of the funeral arrangements. He is survived by his mother, who spent the past winter in his home] - [Microfilm Repository: Hamilton East Public Library - Noblesville, Hamilton Co, Indiana]

Col. 1: "Following are the names of the men in Boone, Hamilton , Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Morgan and Shelby counties, all contiguous to Marion county, who probably will be called in the increment for service in the army. The allotment for each was obtained from Jesse Eschbach, state conscription agent, and is his best estimate. The names published below were taken in order as they were drawn at Washington until names representing twice the allotment had been obtained. It is estimated that it will be necessary to call twice the allotment for each county in order to provide for exemptions. The list given below for each county therefore should be about the list that will be used in the first call for service.

(Special to the Indianapolis News)
   Noblesville, Ind., August 15--The county conscription board today issued a call for 120 young men to report in this city for examination for military service.  Forty will be examined on Friday, Forty on Saturday and Forty on Monday.  Although the board is still working on exemptions filed by the first 300 who were examined the members are satisfied that the county's quota of 148 will not be obtained from that number.  One hundred and six have been accepted and their names certified to the district board.  Today the board transferred ten from the rejected list and placed them among those who have been accepted without re-examination.  This was done because the government permitted the board more latitude on the question of weight and also for the reason that the government promises to repair the teeth of those who were rejected on that account.
   Today the board announced the appended list of those who had filed exemptions and had them denied.  All except six of the fifty-eight claimed they had wives and children to support.  Others said their parents were depending on them for support.  All are married men.  These names have been certified to the district board.  The list follows:

   Blanchard H. Commack, of Noblesville, and Raymond T. Briles and Arthur Foulke, of Cicero, all asked to be exempted on the ground that they are members of a well-organized religious sect. whose existing creed forbids its members from participation in war.  The board denied the claims of these men, but will notify the local boards that these registrants should not be compelled to serve in any capacity except that which has been declared by the President to be noncombatant.

Hoosiers on Trial
   When Capt. William E. Reilley of Indianapolis, Judge advocate, announced to the court that the Rev. Mr. Deeter desired to represent Heminger and Studebaker at their trials, Lieut. Col. Edward B. Mitchell, president, said that he had never before heard of a minister appearing as council for a defendant at a military court-martial, but that there would be no objection by the court.  The cases were then set for Tuesday.
   Seven Conscientious objectors were tried.  They are Stanley Porter, Jacob Mezelin, Charles E. McPherson, Arthur Foulke, Elmer Leichty, Amos T. Borntrager and William Nussbaum.  There are from Indiana with the exception of Porter, who was inducted into the national army from Kentucky.  It is expected that the trials of the fifty-four against whom charges have been preferred will be completed this week.  Twelve cases were hear Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Another prisoner's trial was suspended when he asked that he be transferred into a noncombatant unit, where he agreed to serve.

Roster Contains Many Names Familiar in Hamilton County

Many soldiers from Hamilton county are at Camp Taylor, Ky., and it will be of interest to know something about the organization to which they belong. Most of them are in Battery ?? 325th Field Artillery. Recently [a] fund was raised amounting to something over $100. In a few days subscriptions will be closed, and the money sent to the Battery. This organization is largely from Hamilton county, and the names of the soldiers will be familiar to our people. AT the request of those in charge of the fund Captain Charles C. Rees, their Commander, has furnished the roster, which is here published for the information of all concerned:

First Announcement of Conscription Board On Matter of Exemptions
SAID EVERYONE ON LIST IS MARRIED [not true, Arthur Foulke not married at the time]
Local Government Agent Ordered To Appeal All Dependency Cases

The county conscription board posted the names of fifty-eight men Tuesday for army service. They are men who had filed exemptions but they board denied their claims. It is the understanding of the board that all of them are married. With less than half a dozen exceptions all of the fifty-eight based the exemption claims on the grounds that they had wives and children depending on them for support. A few claimed that their parents were depending on them for support. It is the intention of the board to have a partial list of the exemptions which will be granted ready for publication tomorrow. However, the complete list of these claims which have been accepted and rejected will not likely be finished until the latter part of the week.
Prosecutor Mendenhall, who has been appointed to represent the government in this conscription work, received a telegram from Washington Tuesday ordering him to appeal every case where the local board grants exemptions on account of dependency. This is a new phase of the situation which the Hamilton county board nor Mr. Mendenhall had any knowledge of until the message came and they take it to mean that the government is going to be very strict on the exemption question. The following is the list of the men that was posted in the office of the Sheriff Tuesday morning for military service because (Continued on Page 6) their exemption claims had been denied: . . .

While The Allotment Is 146 About Three Hundred Will Be Summoned
Much Maligned Number "13" Was Vindicated In The Draft

The much maligned number "thirteen" was vindicated by the army draft Friday. While many young men in Hamilton county scanned the number as they were drawn expecting to be called with No. 13 well up in the first division, the capsule containing the supposedly ill-fated number must have been reposing on the bottom of the glass bowl used in the drawing. Thirteen was the y809th number drawn, leaving that class well outside of the first army. To be sure it is quite possible that some men who held 13 as their serial number insist that it is unlucky, as they wished to be drawn early.
But opportunities to serve Uncle Sam in the war are still open to volunteers. Number 13List Local Boys Who Expect to be called Fist in Hamilton county was held by John D. Brandon of Fishers.
Men personally interested in the relation of the numeral "2" to the draft were relieved when the figure failed to appear in the list until 10811 other numbers had been drawn. Many men whose understanding of the draft regulations were hazy expected Nos. 1 and 2 to swing them into the war service among the first.
According to the latest information the quota for Hamilton county is 146 About double that number will be in the first call in order to take care of all of the exemptions that may come up. The names published below will probably b e the first boys called from this county. The names appear in order in which they were drawn at Washington. The numbers 1, 2, 3, etc. at the beginning of teach paragraph indicate the order in which the numbers were drawn. The serial numbers follow:
