      Jacob F. Tower, 71, Veteran member of the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors and a prominent county cattleman, died this morning at St. Joseph's Hospital in Stockton, following a long illness. For most of the past year he had been confined either to his home or to the hospital and was last taken to the hospital early this month. Only a few days ago, Mr. Tower had expressed the desire to spend his last days at home in Salt Spring Valley but death came before his wish could be granted.

He served as supervisor from District No. 5 for more than 26 years and at the same time managed extensive stock-raising interests in the lower part of the county with a summer stock range at Stanislaus Meadows. He was first elected to the Board of Supervisors in January, 1903 and served two terms until January, 1911; In 1915 he was again elected to represent his district and again served two terms. In 1931 he again was returned to the position after being out of office for eight years and this year was in the third year of his third term in succession. Actual service to the county as supervisor from the Fifth District was 26 years and 10 1/2 months. The vacancy on the board will be filled by an appointment by Governor Culbert L. Olson. Mrs. Tower preceded her husband in death by only a few months having died last spring.
