Sergt. Earl Belfry of the Sixth marines will never 
return to the girl wife he bade adieu last January. 
"Died of wounds" was the message received at the 
home of her mother, Mrs. Edward Kugelman, 4201 
Prairie avenue, yesterday.

Sergt. Belfry was a son of Mr. and Mrs. George 
E. Belfry of 4213 Grand boulevard. He was a 
graduate of the Wendell Phillips High school 
and was in the employ of the Hibbard-Spencer-
Bartlett company before his enlistment.

She's Sad, but Proud.

"We were sweethearts from childhood," said Mrs. 
Belfry yesterday. She will be 20 in July. "We 
were married last Nov. 9, and he sailed for 
France three months later. I wanted to go over as 
a nurse, but could not because of the ruling of 
the war department. I am sad today, but my heart 
is filled with pride."

"He performed his duty," said Mrs. John Maginske 
of 3513 Melrose street when notified that her son, 
Sergt. Edward T. Maginske, had been killed in 
action. He joined the regular army seven years 
ago and was among the first to go to France.

Austin Mourns Him.

Private George Albert Gustafson, killed in action, 
enjoyed the distinction of being Austin's first 
volunteer in the war. He was 17 years old when he 
gained his parents' consent and enlisted in the 
marine corps. He sailed for France July 7. The 
parents are Mr. and Mrs. Anton Gustafson, and they 
live at 944 North Parkside avenue.

A gold star will replace one of the two blue stars 
in the service flag in the home of Mr. and Mrs. 
Alexander Dingle, 817 North Lombard avenue, Oak 
Park. Their eldest son, Private William Dingle of 
the Sixth marines, was reported yesterday as dead 
of wounds received in action. He was 24 years old 
and enlisted in May of 1917.

Niles Center Proud of Him.

Private Adam B. Kirscht, another marine reported 
killed in action, was the son of Theodore Kirscht, 
who for many years has been custodain of the Glen 
View golf grounds. Private Kirscht made his home 
with a cousin, Peter Kirscht, of Niles Center.

Private John J. Pozdol, also reported killed in 
action, was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Pozdol of 
Downers Grove. He was 23 years old and enlisted in 
the marine corps last May. One brother, James, is in 
the army, on duty in New Mexico, and the other, 
Frank, is but 18 and is trying to gain the consent 
of his parents to join the service.

Private Elmer Davis, reported severely wounded is of 
American fighting stock. His father and grandfather 
fought in the civil war. One of his sisters, Della 
Davis Dessert, is now with the American Red Cross as 
a nurse.

Private Walter Stelmaszek, reported severely wounded, 
was making munitions when the United States entered 
the war and he decided he would enter it, too. He 
enlisted in the field artillery and reached France 
last December.
