June. He was formerly a boilermaker.

PRIVATE CHARLES PLETKA of the Canadian army, 
reported gassed, lived with his brother, Joseph, 
at 5115 South Winchester avenue. He declined to 
wait for the United States to enter the war 
and enlisted early in 1915.

PRIVATE GUSTAVE KALIS, died of wounds, leaves a 
wife and baby at 3245 Fox street. He was formerly 
a carpenter, working in Blue Island. He enlisted 
soon after the United States entered the war.

Chicago's honor roll gained new names yesterday.

A telegram, "Died of wounds received in action," 
conveyed to Mrs. Florence Kalis the first information 
that her husband, Gustave Kalis, had enlisted in the 
United States army and was fighting the boche in 
France. He left his home more than a year ago to go 
to Michigan to work on a farm. He was to send for 
his wife and baby later. No word was ever received 
from him.

Came from Poland.

Kalis came to America from Singolmo, Poland, where 
his parents are still living. His wife was formerly 
Miss Florence Elliott. Since her husband's 
disappearance she has obtained a position in order 
to support herself and baby. Kalis has a cousin, 
Charles Golka, living at 3208 Wall street.

Private Charles Pletka didn't wait for the United 
States to declare war on Germany. He enlisted with 
the Canadian army soon after the Lusitania was 
torpedoed. A cablegram from France yesterday 
carried the information that he had been gassed. 
He may recover. He formerly lived with his brother, 
Joseph, 5115 South Winchester avenue.

Student Aviator Killed.

Horace Wood of Evanston, a student aviator at Fort 
Worth, Tex., is dead as a result of a 3,500 foot 
fall in his airplane. He was trying to execute an 
intricate maneuver when his machine "bucked" and 
crashed before he could regain control. He was 
alive when taken from the wreckage and after he had 
been removed to the hospital it was thought he 
might recover.

His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence E. Wood, left 
for Fort Worth immediately on receipt of news of 
the accident, but the boy died a few hours before 
they arrived. The body will be brought to Chicago 
for burial.

The death in France of Lieutenant Commander Lyman 
Blair Hoops, son of Thomas, J. Hoops of Middleton, 
Conn., and grandson of Mrs. H. O. Hoops of Chicago, 
is announced. Lieutenant Commander Hoops was born 
in 1892 and was appointed to the navy in 1912 from 
Connecticut. Before the outbreak of the war he was 
an ensign assigned to the battleship Texas. Since 
then he rose through the grades of junior and senior 
lieutenant. No details as to the cause of death are 
given.

of Engineers of the regular army, and sailed for

employ of the subway when he enlisted last year.

Sergeant John Farrell is a brother of Mrs. John
Reilly of 2394 Eighth Avenue.  He was in the United
States Merchant Marine Service on the Pacific when
this country entered the war.  He resigned and went
to Toledo, Ohio, where he enlisted in the regular
army.  He is in the machine-gun company of the 26th
Infantry.  A telegram to his sister stated that he 
was wounded on May 28.  He was two brothers, one of
whom was recently honorably discharged from the
army because of disability.  The other brother is
in the Marine Corps.

Sergeant Gerald W. Quinn, wounded severely, enlisted
in the regular army last year.  His parents live at
751 Union Street, Brooklyn.  The father of the
wounded soldier is seriously ill, and has not been
told that his son was wounded.   Sergeant Quinn is
25 years old and is in the Engineers.

Private Garber, seriously wounded, is only 19 years
old.  He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Eli Garber of 500
West 176th Street.  Garber enlisted in the regular
army when he was 16 years old, and was in one of
the regiments that General Pershing led into Mexico
in 1916.  He went to France with the 1st Division
of regulars.

Private John Mulcahey, also reported severely wounded,
whose address is given in the casualty list as 121 
Prospect Street, Brooklyn, is not known at that address.

night announcing the death of in action on May 29 of their
son, Lieutenant Wilmer K. Bodenstadt of the 28th Infantry.
