A Mass of Christian burial for retired Army Lt. Col. Paul E. Waters, who taught at the Polytechnic Institute for 11 years, will be offered at 8 p.m. today at Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church, Liberty Heights Avenue and Edgewood Road. Colonel Waters, who was 72 and lived on Stevenswood Road in Randallstown, died Friday of emphysema at the Baltimore County General Hospital.

Born in Baltimore, he was a graduate of Douglass High School and what is now Morgan State University. He did graduate work in history and French at Columbia University.

His wife, the former Doris Blay, died in 1982. He is survived by two sons, Army Maj. Robert M. Waters, who is stationed in Germany, and Anthony D. Waters of Miami; a daughter, Patricia W. Kidwell of Ellicott City; three sisters, H. Louise Gambrill of Baltimore, Lois E. White of Pikesville and M. Doris Waters of Randallstown; a brother, Raymond Lawrence Waters Jr. of Baltimore; and four grandchildren.
