Miss Ball had been ill several months, resulting from a complete nervous collapse which occurred last summer, from which she was unable to rally.

At the time she was taken ill she had enrolled for the second year law course. She was also a graduate of Wilson’ Business College.

Miss Ball mapped out for herself an active business career with the ultimate intention of dedicating her life and efforts to welfare work among the girls of the Hawaiian Island and with hat object in view she had planned to spend later on, a year’s time in New York specializing along such lines. For years she had been an active member of Plymouth Congregational Church. She also took an active part in the Christian Endeavor Society of that church.

Miss Ball was a sister of the late Alice A. Ball, formerly instructor of chemistry in the College of Hawaii, Honolulu, who died here over a year ago.

Seattle Man Shoots Woman; Then Turns Weapon Upon Himself
Boston, Saturday, October 15. Claude C. Howe, 26, formerly of Seattle, Washington, shot and seriously wounded his sweetheart, Mrs. Elizabeth Langzatel, aged 37 and then killed himself in a lodging house there.

Jealousy is believed by the police to have been the cause of the shooting.

Howe lived in Seattle from 1900 until he enlisted in the Navy, serving throughout the war. Discharged in Boston two years ago, he had lived there since. His father, C.M.C. Howe, employed at the Market Inn, 1527 First Avenue, received a letter a few weeks ago from his son saying he would be here in January on a honeymoon. Howe carried a $10,000 war risk insurance policy in favor of a sister in Idaho. Another sister is the wife of William T.C. Ball, local attorney.
