    ORANGE, N. J., Aug. 29 - The Rev. Henry Felix Kloman, Episcopal minister who retired in May as chaplain of St. Mary's School, Raleigh, N. C., died today in Orange Memorial Hospital from the effects of a stroke suffered yesterday. His age was 72. Mr. Kloman, who was born in Warrenton, Va., on May 4, 1870, during the month of August had been in charge of Grace Episcopal Church here in the absence of the rector, the Rev. Lane W. Barton.

    After his graduation from the Virginia Theological Seminary at Alexandria, and his ordination in 1895, Mr. Kloman served for two years as rector of Pohick Church, near Mount Vernon, where George Washington had attended.

    He was assistant rector of Christ Church, Baltimore, 1897-1900; rector of St. Paul's at Haymarket, Va., 1900-05, and of St. Stephens, Portland, Ore., 1905-16, and dean of the Cathedral in Fargo, N. D., 1916-23. His work at Fargo was interrupted by the first World War in which he served in France as chaplain of Mobile Hospital, No. 1, with the rank of major.

    Mr. Kloman was rector of St. Peter's Church, Salisbury, Md., 1923-28, and of Emmanuel Church, Cumberland, Md., from 1928 until appointed chaplain of St. Mary's in 1934.

    In 1900, Mr. Kloman married Eleanor Marshall Trapnell of Charles Town, W. Va., who died last Christmas Day. Surviving are three children, the Rev. Edward Felix Kloman, rector of Old Christ Church, Philadelphia; Joseph Trapnell Kloman, New York artist, and Mrs. Mark Jenkins, wife of the rector of Calvary Church, Fletcher, N. C.; two brothers, Dr. E. H. Kloman of Baltimore and William C. Kloman of Washington, and five sisters, Mrs. Jesse A. Davis of Baltimore, Miss Agnes Kloman of Warrenton; Mrs. John E.
