Mrs. Brigadier Alice Craytor was promoted to Glory from Wall, N.J.

Alice Hatfield was born to Claude and Alice Hatfield in Camden, N.J. She accepted Christ as her savior at the Taylor Memorial Methodist Church in April 1930, and met The Salvation Army in 1931. She enrolled as a soldier of the Philadelphia, Pa., (#4) Corps in September of that year. She wrote in 1932, "I have had definite calling in His Service and I fully believe that Christ wants me to be an officer in The Salva-tion Army because I feel it is there that He will be able to use me as He desires and where He can make me a blessing to mankind for the extension of His Kingdom."

She married Captain Arthur Craytor in 1932. They rejoined the Army as officers in 1936, and Alice Craytor was commissioned in 1937. The Craytors served as administrators of Adult Rehabilitation Centers in New Jersey and Connecticut and as corps officers in New York be-fore joining the Territorial Headquarters staff, where they served until 1961. Further field appointments followed at ARCs in New York and New Jersey. They retired from active service in 1973. In retirement, Mrs. Brigadier Craytor participated in League of Mercy ministry at the Shore Memorial Hospital in Somers Point, N.J.

She is survived by a daughter, Alyce Steiner; two sisters, Ruth Beatrice of Avalon, N.J., and Dorothy Stutz of Mays Landing; a brother, Jack Hatfield; eight grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren. Messages for the family may be sent to Alyce Steiner, 6011 Summerdale Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19149.
