=============================================
Two Chicago zone men -- Lieut. George P. Gustafson and 
Sergt. Stanley C. Ostrowski -- were listed in the overseas 
casualties of yesterday as having died of wounds.

David R. Forgan, president of the National City bank, received 
notification of the wounding of his son-in-law, W. Vernon Booth Jr., 
presumably in aerial combat.
Booth is a sergeant in the Lafayette escadrille. His injuries 
consist of fractures of the wrist and leg, according to the 
cablegram received by Mr. Forgan from his daughter, Mrs. Booth, 
who until May, when she was married in Paris, was Miss Ethel Forgan.
Brought Down Foe.
The cable disclosed no details, Mr. Forgan said. Sergt. Booth, 
however, already had a record as an intrepid air fighter. On Feb. 23 
last he brought down a Boche machine in a battle some miles inside 
the German lines.

He was born in Chicago and is a son of the founder of the Booth 
Fisheries company and a cousin of P. D. Armour Ill., John Lester 
Armour, and Patrick A. Valentine Jr. He was graduated from Harvard 
and the New York Law school, and was practicing law in New York when 
the war started.

Lieut. McKeown Hurt.
Another Chicago eagle to suffer severe injury is Lieut. John 
Lattimer McKeown, member of the Chicago Athletic association and a 
son of John C. McKeown of 5125 Ingleside avenue, of the contracting 
firm of McKeown Bros.
News of his injury was conveyed in a letter received from his friend, 
Lieut. T. R. Hinger. McKeown was flying in the neighborhood of Paris 
when his machine became unmanageable and fell. McKeown was pinned 
beneath the wreckage, but his padded leather helmet saved his life 
by preventing his skull from being crushed, the letter read.
McKeown is an alumnus of the University of Chicago and in 1914 was 
the champion hurdler of the west.

Lieut. Cox Wounded.
Professor H. J. Cox, director of the Chicago forecast division of 
the United States weather bureau, received a letter from his son, 
Lieut. Paul G. Cox, of the Twenty-eighth United States infantry, 
apprising him that he and a fellow officer, Lieut. Crowley, son of 
W. H. Crowley, chief clerk of the United States railway mail 
service, had been wounded in action June 12. Both are convalescing 
rapidly in a hospital in the south of France.
"I suppose you have heard all about the American drive by this 
time," the letter reads. "I cannot write you very much about it. I 
lasted three days after going over the top and was hit just before 
we were relieved to come back. It was a wonderful drive, with French 
tanks, and we surely delivered a knockout punch to Fritz."

Sycamore Lieutenant Dead.
Lieut. George P. Gustafson, who is listed as having died of wounds, 
formerly was a clerk with the B. F. Goodrich company, 1925 South 
Michigan avenue, and lived at the Wilson Avenue Y. M. C. A. His 
family live at Sycamore, Ill. He won his commission at the first 
officers' training camp at Fort Sheridan.

Sergt. Stanley C. Ostrowski, also listed as having died of wounds, 
had served in the regular United States army three years and had 
received an honorable discharge, but he reenlisted in 1916 and was 
among the first to go to France. His mother, Mrs. Eva Oxtrowski, has 
a three starred service flag in the window of the home at 2236 
Sacramento avenue, Stanley's two brothers, John and Bernard, both 
being in the military service.

Medals for Wounded Private.
There is no doubt that one or two medals will be pinned on the coat 
of Private John P. Kaulen if he recovers from his wounds in a French 
base hospital. He was listed as severely wounded.
Kaulen it was who last May was surprised by three Germans while he 
lay in an advanced listening post in No Man's land. He was ordered 
to surrender. Instead he reversed the situation by making prisoners 
of his captors and marching them back to the American lines. He 
formerly lived with his uncle, Hubert Kaulen at 510 South Leavitt 
street.

Missing in action is the notation after the name of private Frank 
Gorny of the Eighteenth company, Fifth regiment of marines. He has 
been a member of the marines three years. He left for France last 
August. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gorny, live at 2701 Cologne 
street.

Another member of the Rev. Charles A. Nyman's church, the Broadway 
Methodist Episcopal, at Broadway and Buckingham place, has been 
named in the casualty list. He is Private Fred A. Uhlendorf, son of 
Mr. and Mrs. Arthur H. Uhlendorf of 3432 Elaine place. He was 
slightly wounded June 6. He enlisted May 6, 1917, and is a member of 
the Eighty-third company, Sixth regiment of marines. He was formerly 
a salesman for the National Biscuit company.
