Emergency Operation Performed on Otto L. Clark Is Fatal.  Following an emergency operation performed at 11 o’clock Wednesday night, Otto L. Clark, 30-year old postal clerk, died at Memorial hospital at 6:45 o’clock this morning.  He was admitted to the hospital at 10:30 o’clock last night under advisement of his attending physician and operated upon for removal of an intestinal obstruction.  Mr. Clark was born November 27, 1892 in Houston, Ohio, and lived for the last 19 years in Piqua.  He began service with the U. S. Postoffice department shortly after his removal here, his first position being that of sub-clerk.  He was promoted February 16, 1916 to clerkship and retained the position until several weeks ago when illness forced his retirement from active service. He was a member of the First Presbyterian church, having transferred his membership from the Covington Presbyterian church.  He also belonged to the Masonic lodge.  Surviving him are his widow, one 10-month old baby daughter, Ruth, and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Clark of near Covington. Funeral arrangements have not yet been completed.
