Sergt. Herbert F. Bethea

Special to The State.

    Latta, March 11.--Latta was saddened to learn of the death of Sergt. Herbert F. Bethea at Camp Jackson. While he had been sick for about three weeks, his condition was not considered critical until a few days before he died.

Sergeant Bethea entered the service last spring and came home on only one furlough. The remains were brought to Latta last Tuesday and laid to rest in the Latta Cemetery in the presence of one of the largest assemblies ever seen in Latta. He was 20 years of age. His parents having died in his early youth, he was reared by his uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Laurin Bethea, with whom he made his home until the time of his enlistment. He was a graduate of Clemson College. Three sisters and one brother survive him: Mrs. Tracy Henry of Latta, Mrs. Joe Meadows and Miss Sallie Bethea of Little Rock and Lieut. Palmer Bethea.
