      Holis Hayes Passes Away
      Holis M. Hayes, 56-year-old Linesville business man, died early Sunday morning at City Hospital, Meadville, after an extended illness.
      Mr. Hayes has owned and operated the Regent Theater in Linesville since 1928. He purchased the theater (built by his cousin Charles Hayes) soon after he took over its operation.
      Only the day before Mr. Hayes passed away, Mrs. Hayes had carried out a several years tradition, by providing free movies for children at a community Christmas party. Mr. Hayes annually provided the movies for the children's party sponsored by Pymatuning Sportsmens Club, Inc.
      Earlier the Espyville native and lifelong Crawford Countian had managed Rieck-McJunkin Dairy Company creameries at Espyville and Linesville.
      From 1933 until recent months when poor health interfered, Mr. Hayes also carried star route mail between Linesville and Meadville.
      His death followed by a year and three days the death of his father, Henry Hayes.
      He was a member of Pine Lodge 498, F. and A.M. and the Linesville Lines Club.
      Surviving are his widow, the former Valoris Crom, whom he married in 1918; two sons, Glenn G., Linesville, and Richard H., at home, and several cousins.
      Funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon at the Maryott Funeral Home, Linesville, by Rev. E.W. Spence, pastor of Linesville United Presbyterian Church.
