One of the gold stars will shine for Private Walter 
Slomka. His widowed mother, Mrs. Julianna Slomka, was 
tilling the little war garden in the rear of her 
home at 957 North Homan avenue yesterday, when 
notified that he had been killed in action. He 
enlisted in the aviation corps soon after the 
United States entered the war, but was later 
transferred to the infantry. Eight of his relatives, 
including one brother, William, are now fighting for 
the allied cause in France.

Writes Last Letter.

"Don't expect to hear from me for at least ten days, 
father, as we are going into action again," wrote 
Sergt. Charles H. Meyer in the last letter received 
by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Meyer of 4318 
Sawyer avenue. Yesterday they received notification 
he had died of wounds received in action. He enlisted 
in the United States marine corps in May, 1917.

Sergt. Charles C. Coe enlisted in the marion corps as 
a trumpeter, but because of his physical fitness was 
later appointed a runner, his duties being to carry 
messages through barrages, machine gun fire, and gas 
bombardments when other means of communication had 
failed. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles R. Coe, 
yesterday received notification of his death from 
wounds received in action.

Letter to Mother.

Here is a letter his mother received from him a short 
time ago:

"You say, pray; I do. When I am given a message I do 
not know what it contains. It may contain an order 
that will save the lives of my comrades, or it may 
be a trivial order. I do not know. Sometimes my path 
is shelled and sometimes I am in plain sight of the 
enemy."

New York notes:

Private Philip L. Alberti reported 
killed in action in yesterday's Marine 
Corps list was a graduate of Drexel 
Institute, Philadelphia, and a brother of 
Abraham Albert of 887 Fifth Avenue,
Brooklyn. He was 27 years old. He 
sailed for France about four months
ago.

Private Thomas Zangara, named in 
the army list of those killed in action, 
was a member of the 18th Infantry. His 
parents, who live in Passaic, N. J., re-
ceived word from the War Department 
yesterday that he was killed on May 30. 
Zangara, who was 21 years old, went to
France with the first division of 
regulars to follow General Pershing 
overseas.

Benjamin Saltzman, dead of wounds,
was 20 years old, and came to the
United States from Austria nineteen 
years ago. He was a machine gun man 
in the 18th Infantry. Saltzman was the 
first graduate of Public School 109 to 
enlist after Congress declared war. His
parents live at 5452 Sackman Street,
Brooklyn.

Private Henry De Mott, severely
wounded, enlisted in the marines in 1913. 
His home is in Port Jervis, N. Y., and
he is 21 years old.

Zalme Luloff, private of marines, se-
verely wounded, is a son of Herman
Luloff of 1781 Richmond Terrace, S. I. 
He is a graduate of the Curtis High 
School and is 20 years old. He went to 
France with the 1st Division of regulars 
last Summer.

Calvin W. Schwabe of the marines, se-
verely wounded, is a son of Mrs. Frederick
W. Baab of 131 Maple Avenue, Irvington, 
N. J.  He is a Newark public school boy, 
and is only 17 years old.

Mrs. H. J. Hanley of 572 Hunterdon 
Avenue, Newark, was notified yesterday 
that her son, James F. B. Hanley, of 
the regular army, had been wounded 
a second time.

Private Anthony Gerage, severely 
wounded, is a member of Company 66, 
First Battalion, 5th Regiment of the 
marines. He is 18 years old, and en-
listed last May, sailing for France June 
1. He has three brothers in service. 
The family came to America from Italy 
nineteen years ago. Anthony was attending 
Bushwick High School, studying to be an 
architect, when he enlisted.  In a 
recent letter to his mother he wrote:
"You think I have not bought any 
Liberty bonds, but don't fool yourself. 
Same day you are going to find a big 
Liberty bond in the mail for me. I 
bought a $250 bond."
The Gerage home is at 305 Berriman 
Street, Brooklyn.

Private Thomas H. Fagan of 1039 
Avenue D, College Point, L. I., was 
killed in action on June 7, with the 48th 
Canadian Highlanders, according to a 
telegram received yesterday by his 
mother, Mrs. Mary Fagan. He enlisted 
In April, 1917, and had been in France
five months. He was 18 years old. His 
brother John has been a member of the 
Canadian Highlanders since 1914. Another 
brother, Alfred, was recently drafted
for the American Army. Fagan is the 
third College Point man to die in the 
war.

Private Oscar Ammon was recently killed 
in action, with the 165th Infantry. 

William Buerger was killed by a fall on 
a battleship.

A letter from Private Chester Cravatt, 
who was reported missing in action 
April 20, was received yesterday by his 
mother. Mrs. H. E. Cravatt, 144 Emsbury 
Avenue, Ocean Grove. According to the 
letter, he was taken prisoner on 
April 12. He went into the front-line 
trenches with a platoon of forty-two 
men, all but fourteen of whom were 
killed. These, of whom six were wound-
ed, were taken prisoners.   Food, Cravatt 
wrote, was scarce, and the prisoners had 
nothing to smoke, but they were well 
treated.   Cravatt, who is 22 years old, 
enlisted in New Haven in the Spring of 
1917.
