24 HASKINS & SELLS March . It becomes our sad duty, in this number of the Bulletin, to chronicle the death of Mrs. Sells, at Cromwell, Connecticut, Monday, February 20, 1922. Born March 3, 1862, at Dubuque, Iowa, Mrs. Sells, who before her marriage was Miss Mabel E. Graves, spent the earlier part of her life in the Middle West, coming to New York when Mr. Sells' professional engagements brought him here. While Mrs. Sells has been an invalid for the past fifteen years and her failing health more recently has given little hope of recovery, the realization of her death brings a sense of deepest sorrow and loss to the many by whom she was known and loved. The funeral services, held at her late home, "Wattland," King Street, Greenwich, Connecticut, Thursday morning, February 23, were attended by a large representation from the Haskins & Sells organization and members of the accountancy profession. The ceremony, characterized by its sweet simplicity, was most impressive, and the wealth and beauty of floral tokens were a fitting tribute to the esteem in which Mrs. Sells was held. The interment was in Putnam Cemetery at Greenwich, in a spot marked by its simplicity and thoughtful consideration in selection. The following note, written by Mr. Sells in appreciation of the many attentions of which he was the recipient, is expressive of the keen interest with which Mrs. Sells followed the progress of the organization: Dear Members of the Firm: The rose wreath on a pedestal in the bed of ferns with your expression of sympathy touched me deeply. Its delicacy, its beauty, and its magnificence typify the character of your constant interest in, and devotion to, Mrs. Sells and me during the many years of her failing health. Need I say of her that her loyalty to, and pride in the firm, and deep personal interest in each one of us, never faltered. Your attentions at this time will ever be a sweet memory and I thank you with all my heart. Sincerely, (Signed) E. W. S. Wattland, February 23, 1922. At a meeting of the Johnstown (Pa.) Society of Accountants, held on February 23, the speakers were Messrs. E. C. Gause and A. J. Farber of our Pittsburgh office. Mr. Gause spoke on "Financial Statements," and brought out the advantages of closing the books and preparing statements at the end of the natural business year rather than December 31. Mr. Farber dealt with the subject of "Tax Laws" and was engaged for several hours after the close of his paper in discussing questions bearing on the tax situation. It is with no small pride and pleasure that we announce that Messrs. J. F. Coer-ver, W. G. LaRue, J. M. Neumayer, W. A. Robertson and E. F. Wetteroth, all members of the St. Louis staff, have recently obtained the CP.A. certificate of the State of Missouri. This is a most encouraging and creditable showing, not only for each of the successful candidates, but also for the St. Louis Office. We also note with pleasure that Mr. C. Doiseau, Assistant Manager, New Orleans office, has recently received the C. P. A. certificate of the State of Louisiana. Mr. F. L. Wilkinson, of the staff of the New York 39th Street office, is to be congratulated upon his article, appearing in the Journal of Accountancy for March, 1922, entitled, "Accounting for Electric Light and Power Industries." The paper was presented as a thesis at the November, 1921, examinations of the American Institute of Accountants. PRESS OF WILLIAM GREEN, NEW YORK
