Four Chicagoans were named in the overseas casualty list 
yesterday, among them being Corporal Clarence H. Babb, 
a son of Mr. and Mrs. John W. Babb of 832 West Garfield 
boulevard. He is a member of the United States marines, 
and accompanying the information that he had been 
severely wounded was a letter from Maj. Gen. George 
Barnett, commandant of the corps.
"I know that you will be proud of your boy's conduct and 
I congratulate you upon having given so brave a defender 
to the cause of liberty," the letter read.

Fights Despite Wound.

Corp. Babb continued fighting after he had been wounded 
and only stopped when he was overcome by exhaustion. 
He is 25 years old and was formerly draft clerk in the 
Drovers' National bank. He is now in a base hospital 
and his nurse has written to his parents that a 
complete recovery is expected.
Sergt. Timothy Long, a veteran regular army man, listed 
as having died of wounds, gave as his "nearest of kin," 
Miss Helen Gilkinson, who lives at 343 West Sixty-fifth 
street. She is 9 years old. The sergeant met her while 
he was boarding at the home of her grandmother, 
Mrs. M. S. Tuttle, 1136 East Sixty-fifth street, and 
they became fast friends.
When he left for Frances last summer, Helen was the 
proudest little girl on the south side, for she had a 
personal interest in the American expeditionary force. 
He was 38 year old and had served Uncle Sam as a 
soldier for twenty years.

Wounded' Severely.
Private Everett H. Howe, listed as wounded severely, 
has only one relative in Chicago -- an uncle, Frank E. 
Dacons, who himself is ill at his residence, 847 West 
Adams street. Private Howe enlisted in September of 1916 
and was assigned to the sanitary train, ambulance company 
No. 12, Eighteenth infantry. A brother, Walter Howe, is 
also in the United States military service.
The Rev. Hadley Cooper, who was gassed while on duty in 
a Y. M. C. A. hut near the American front line trenches, 
and whose death has just been reported, was pastor for 
two years of St. Christopher's church, Oak Park. He 
enlisted for service as a chaplain two weeks after the 
United States entered the war. He was unmarried and a 
son of the Rev. and Mrs. Robert O. Hadley of Riverside. 
He remained at his post under a heavy German shell and 
gas attack.

Rainbow Man Hit.
Paul Degenkolbe, formerly of Chicago, but now living at 
Itasca, Ill., received notification yesterday that his 
son, Sergt. Edward Degenkolbe had been severely wounded 
in action. He was formerly traveling salesman for Carson, 
Pirie, Scott & Co. He went to France with the Rainbow 
division.
