Untimely Death of Alice M’Cune Saddens Friends
Scores of peninsula friends of Miss Alice Lehmer McCune, brilliant University of California student and a graduate of Pacific Grove high school, were saddened this week by news of her death in Berkeley. Stricken last week with blood poisoning the attractive 23-year-old girl succumbed Sunday at the Cowell Memorial hospital. Private funeral services were held at the Oakland Crematorium on Tuesday of this week. Miss McCune, an honor graduate with last year’s class at the University of California, was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas H. McCune of Pacific Grove and a sister of Mrs. L.A. Harper, well known tennis star. She graduated from Pacific Grove high school with the class of 1928. She was valedictorian of her class and student body president in her senior year. Principal A.B. Ingham of the Grove school today said that Miss McCune was the most brilliant student ever to graduate from the high school. At the university she continued her scholarship record and became a member of Phi Beta Kappa, honorary scholarship society, in her junior year. Miss McCune was active in various school affairs at Pacific Grove and originated the “Lucky Thirteen”, a girls’ club which is still active. At the time of her death she was studying for her Ph.D. degree.
