Shows Up Submarines.

With more than 800,000 soldiers sent overseas, 
officials pointed to the small number, 291, lost 
through operations of German submarines as showing the 
effectiveness of the convoy system. The men lost were 
on the torpedoed British steamers Tuscania and 
Moldavia. The former was taking troops from America to 
England and the latter from England to France.

The comparatively small number of men dying from wounds 
is pointed to as indicating the efficiency of the 
ambulance and hospital systems, while the fact that 
only 1,234 men have died of disease is accepted as 
proof of the excellent physical condition of America's 
fighting men.

Another satisfying consideration is that of the 
wounded men a very high percentage return to duty 
at the front in less than six weeks.

CORPORAL FRANK TOPINKA, killed in action, was a son of 
Mr. and Mrs. Adolf Topinka, 2734 South Avers avenue. 
The family are Bohemians and have been in this country 
but nine years. Corporal Topinka enlisted in the army 
April 26, 1917, and arrived in France in September.

PRIVATE LEO BALDWIN, killed in action, enlisted a few 
days after the United States entered the war. He went to 
France as a member of Battery D, Seventh field artillery. 
He formerly made his home with his sister, Mrs. D. F. 
McCarthy, living at 1057 West Eightieth street.

FIRST LIEUTENANT JAMES MACBRAYER SELLERS, Sixth United 
States marines, reported severely wounded, was graduated 
from the University of Chicago in 1917. He enlisted 
early in the war. He formerly lived at the Beta Theta Pi 
house, 5717 Blackstone avenue.
