United States navy, serving with marines).

Chicago played her part in recent American 
victories in France at the cost of the lives of 
three of her sons and the wounding of eight 
others. This was information contained yesterday's 
combined army and marine corps casualty lists.

Of the three who died only one was fortunate 
enough to meet his fate as the result of wounds 
received on the field of battle. He was Private 
Floyd De Roo of 2100 Washington boulevard, who 
enlisted in the army immediately after America 
entered the war, and one of whose two brothers 
is also in the service at Camp Funston.

His mother, Mrs. E. De Roo Smith, and her sister, 
Mrs. H. Hensche, were sitting in their home 
Tuesday night talking of the war when Mrs. Smith 
remarked:

Mother Had Premonition.

"I haven't heard from Floyd -- I am afraid 
something has happened."

"I've a presentiment he's dead," replied her 
sister.

Yesterday came the news of his death from wounds 
while Mrs. Smith, who had married a second time, 
was at work. Mrs. Hensche had to break the news 
to her sister.

Corporal Wilbert Moseby of 4500 South Wabash 
avenue, who died from disease, was the first 
Chicago Negro to give his life for the country in 
France. He enlisted with the Eighth Illinois 
infantry, now the Three Hundred and Seventieth 
infantry, a year ago. His sister, Mrs. Mollie 
Tapley, received the news of his death.

The address and antecedents of Leo Servid, the 
second Chicagoan to die of disease, are unknown 
to the army officials.

Brothers to Avenge Him.

Corporal Walter Johnson of 2749 Sheffield avenue, 
severely wounded in action, will not go unavenged. 
He is one of five sons of Mrs. J. W. Johnson and 
the "baby" of the family and all of his brothers 
are either in the army or will be shortly, and 
they promise to take good care of the Huns. 
Walter enlisted last July.

Gunnery Sergt. John Bont of 2531 Harrison street 
also has two brothers in the army. Harry is at Camp 
Custer and Minor is at Fort Radmon. Bont had seen 
sixteen years of service with the marines, making 
the trip around the world with the fleet under the 
command of Rear Admiral Evans and serving at Vera 
Cruz. His wife yesterday expressed her pride that 
he should be among the wounded.

Corporal Shannon Wounded.

Corporal Neil S. Shannon of 5802 West Ohio street 
was the recipient of a slight leg wound, his father 
was informed in a cablegram from Arthur Shannon of 
the signal corps, Corporal Shannon's cousin. Shannon 
was wounded on June 7, the anniversary of his 
enlistment.

Sergt. Walter F. Duda of 1715 North Winchester 
avenue, wounded, enlisted in the marine corps four 
year ago. He is 25 years old, and before his 
enlistment drove a butcher's wagon. A brother, John 
Duda, has announced his intention of Joining the 
Polish legion, having been rejected for the army.

Last Letter Prophetic.

Good-by and good luck," John Joseph Posedal, one of 
the marines killed June 5, wrote concluding his last 
letter to his friend, Walter Staats. He belonged to 
the Eighty-first company, Sixth machine gun battery, 
United Sates marines. He was 25 years old, and 
enlisted a year ago. Before the war he assisted his 
father, Martin Posedal, a painter living at Downers 
Grove. His brother, James, is a member of Troop E. 
Twelfth cavalry, stationed at Columbus, N. M.

Earle O. Anderson of 1359 East Sixtysecond street, 
severely wounded, is a member of the Ninety-sixth 
company, Sixth regiment of marines. His mother 
received news of his wounding.

Aviator Is Missing.

Lieut. George F. Thomson, Royal Flying corps, a former 
Evanston newspaper man, is reported among the missing. 
The lieutenant, in his last letter to his relatives, 
said that he had been assigned to pilot a combat plane 
in battle work. That was two weeks ago. His father, 
W. S. Thomson of Craig, Mo., was notified yesterday 
that the lieutenant was missing.
