Eugene Ahern, Cartoonist, Dies; Creator of Major Hoople Was 64
LOS ANGELES, March 6 (AP)—Eugene Leslie Ahern, creator of Major Hoople in the "Our Boarding House" cartoon, died today of a heart attack at his home here. He was 64 years old. Mr. Ahern lived in California for thirty-six years. He retired two years ago. He leaves his wife, Jane; a daughter, Mrs. Nancy Hayward of Clemmons, N. C., and a sister, Mrs. Donald McCurdy, and three brothers, Walter, Harold and John, all of Chicago.

"Major Hoople," Mr. Ahern once recalled, was based on an old fellow I knew quite well when I was growing up. He had been in the Civil War and to hear his tall stories you'd think he had advised Grant and Sherman on every move of the war, telling them exactly what to do every morning. He even insisted he had fired the first shot. "He was quite a character and everyone knew him very well. He called himself 'General' in spite of the fact that he had only been a top sergeant in the Army. The 'General' was one of those men who always put up a $10 front with a dime in their pockets—a natural subject for cartooning." Mr. Ahern also created the cartoon "Room and Board" and another character that gained renown—Judge Puffle.

Born in Chicago, he attended public schools there. He later worked as a model and attended the Chicago Art Institute at night. "Daily, I slipped on cutaway coats, silk top hats and immaculate white gloves—and stood indolently in the front of a room while an artist sketched me for a catalogue," he once said. Soon Mr. Ahern began drawing elegant young men in cartoons. From 1914 to 1936 he worked for the News Enterprise Association in Cleveland. He joined the King Features Syndicate in 1936. He was a member of the Los Angeles Art Assoication, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, the National Cartoonists Society and the Bel-Air Country Club.

Survivors include the widow, Jane. Ahern had lived in California for 36 years.

   On June 5 Maurice Ahern, one of the most respected members of the junior Common Law Bar, collapsed in his Chambers in the Temple and died soon after being taken to hospital.
   Maurice, who was 51, was the son of Dr. Ahern, a well-known prison medical officer. he was educated at Repton under Dr. Fisher and at Pembroke College, Cambridge, was called to the Bar by Gray's Inn in 1938, and became a pupil of Mr. Cecil (now Mr. Justice) Havers.
   The Second World War soon interrupted his legal career, for he was a member of the Territorial Army. On the outbreak of war in 1939 he served as a private in the Royal Artillery; later he was commissioned in the Royal Corps of Signals, acting as a cypher officer. In 1940 he was engaged with operations with Harpoon Force in Holland. He then became attached to the French Army until the fall of France, and was in the retreat from St. Nazaire. Later in the war he was posted to the planning staff of General Eisenhower. He served as a staff officer in the operations in north-west Europe. Besides being mentioned in dispatches he was decorated with the American Bronze Cross.
   He was demobilized in 1945 with the rank of major, and returned to the Temple where he soon acquired a very busy practice. He was held in the highest esteem and affection by his many friends at the Bar, as well as by their clerks. He was a barrister of great ability and was much respected and liked by the Judges of the High Court and of the County Courts, and by the Queen's Bench Masters before whom he often appeared. The Lord Chanceloor's Office also held him in high regard and had often appointed him to act as a deputy County Court Judge. On the Friday before he died he had sat at Southampton County Court.
   Only a few years ago he had a serious operation on the brain, but though it was apparently successful, those near and dear to him realized—as did Maurice towards his end—that it was only a respite. Nevertheless he continued cheerfully to carry on his heavy work at the Bar and other duties with the courage which had characterized his whole life. In 1945 he married Peggy, daughter of Lieutenant-General Sir John Swayne. She and two sons survive him.
   He was buried on Saturday in the churchyard of the parish Church of Newnham village, Hampshire, where he had been a churchwarden.

COUDERSPORT, Pa.—An apparent attempt to kill a milk snake resulted in death for a Ulysses man, 11 miles north of here about 6 p.m. last evening. Charles Daniel Ahearn, 51 of Ulysses Road, RD 1, died of a crushed upper right chest when his tractor overturned after it went over a diversion ditch pinning him beneath it. He was using the vehicle to herd dairy cattle to the barn.

A neighbor, George Hearst, 27, was summoned to pull the tractor off Mr. Ahearn's body. The body was taken to Kear Funeral Home and will be taken tomorrow to the family home, where friends may call.

Jeremiah "Jerry" O'Hearn
A Requiem Mass was offered at St. Charles Church, Dover Plains, on Monday morning for Jerry O'Hearn, 68, a retired employee of the Wassaic State School who passed away suddenly on Saturday morning at Sharon Hospital. The popular and extremely jovial Jerry O'Hearn's tenure of service with the Department of Mental Hygiene began at the Harlem Valley State Hospital, Wingdale, in 1923. When the Wassaic State School opened he transferred there in 1930 and retired in 1960 after 37 years of service. Therefore, we can safely say he was probably the oldest employee at that institution where he supervised the huge garden until the closing of the farm. Thereafter, he was an employee in the garage. We like to remember the tall, well-built Jerry in company with another old employee, the late Joe Ryan, as the two who began the task of getting the farm ready for action. When the two Wingdale importees bent to their task, there were but 24 buildings dotting the spacious Smith-Benson farm. The present hospital and up-to-date office buildings were still in the architects blue-prints.

A resident of the Dover Plains area since boyhood, the deceased was a friend to all who knew him. While this writer was an employee at the store house, we always looked forward to Jerry's visit, a time when a joke or two broke the monotony of an otherwise drab day. He could always be counted on to "needle" any co-worker near at hand, but always in a friendly and human[e] manner. For these and other attributes, Jerry O'Hearn's passing will be mourned by hundreds. He was a member of the Civil Service Employees Association and a communicant of St. Charles Church, Dover Plains.

He was born on June 11th, 1900, the son of the late James and Marie (Hoffman) O'Hearn. He is survived by a daughter Mrs. Margaret Ferris, Danbury, CT; two sons, James, Danbury and Jerry, Jr. of Dover Plains. Another son, William died some years ago. He is also survived by 12 grandchildren and one brother, Leonard Carey, of Bridgewater, Conn. Internment was in St. Charles Cemetery, Dover Plains. Funeral arrangements were in charge of the Hufcut Funeral Home.

Columnist, Executive Editor of Montreal Star, Was 59
MONTREAL, Aug. 9 (1969)—Walter D. O'Hearn, executive editor of The Montreal Star, died last night at the age of 59. He had suffered a heart attack earlier in the week. One of Canada's most distinguished journalists, Mr. O'Hearn was known for his versatility, which allowed him to write book reviews for The New York Times, do analytical reporting from the United Nations and produce whimsical pieces about two imaginary Irish women—Mrs. Harrigan and Mrs. Mulchay—discussing the vital issues of the day.

Mr. O'Hearn, who was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, begat his career in 1929 as a reporter for The Halifax Herald. He came to Montreal in 1932 and joined the now-defunct Montreal Herald as an assistant editor. He became managing editor two years later and held this post until 1940. He brought his talent for treating serious subjects with a light touch to The Standard in 1940, writing a column on a wide variety of topics.

Mr. O'Hearn served in the Canadian Navy during World War II, and a year after his discharge in 1945 was sent to New York as resident correspondent of The Star. He was a founding member and first president of the United Nations Correspondents Association. While at the United Nations, Mr. O'Hearn wrote two books—published by the Canadian Institute for international Affairs in cooperation with the Carnegie Foundation—"United Nations' Struggle for Peace" and "Canada Stands Up."

On returning to Montreal in 1953, he became literary and drama editor of The Star and in 1958 was made managing editor. In 1964 he was made executive editor and last year he became a director of the company. Selections of Mr. O'Hearn's weekly column in The Star's entertainment section were published in a book under two names—"Lady Chatterley, Latterly" and "The Member From Pasquobit." Mr. O'Hearn was in wide demand as a speaker, particularly because of his insight and understanding of what he considered one of the most important stories in North America—The rise of French nationalism in Quebec.
