CHICAGO NOTES FROM THE TRIBUNE:
===============================
The navy department today announced the 
accidental drowning at Pensacola, Fla., on 
June 22 of Seaman Russel B. Manchester, 
N. N. V., of 96 Brayton-st., Fall River, 
Mass. Fireman Hugh S. Croft, U. S. N., of 
Sisseton, S. D., was reported drowned at 
Oceanview, Va., on June 17.

LIEUT. PAUL WAPLES DERRICKSON, killed in 
action, and listed as from Norfolk, Va., 
lived in Chicago before entering the second 
officers' training camp at Fort Sheridan, 
where he won his commission. He was formerly 
with Seasrs, Roebuck & Co., and was a 
student of the Chicago Kent College of Law, 
from which he would have graduated last fall.

A GOLD star will be placed on THE TRIBUNE 
service flag today for Lieut. Charles J. 
Buckley, Three Hundred and Thirtyeighth 
U. S. aero squadron, who died yesterday at 
Hicks, Tex., of injuries sustained in an 
airplane accident last Friday at 
Taliaferro field. The body will be brought 
to Chicago for burial.

Lieut. Buckley's is the first gold star to be 
placed among the 208 stars of THE TRIBUNE 
service flag. He was 24 years old and was in 
the classified advertising department from 
Aug. 23, 1915, until Aug. 21, 1917, when he 
entered the service as a member of the 
aviation reserve corps.

His rudimentary and ground school training was 
received at Champaign. In November of 1917 he 
was transferred to Rantoul, thence to 
Ellington field at Houston, Tex., and on Dec. 
15, 1917, he was made a cadet. He won his 
lieutenant's commission Feb. 25, 1918. 
Recently he had been instructor of hygiene at 
Fort Sill, Okla.

His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Dennis J. Buckley, 
live at 6606 South Green street. Mrs. Buckley, 
who departed for Hicks, Tex., as soon as word 
of the accident was received here, and Lieut. 
Buckley's wife left last night for Chicago 
with the body.

Among Chicago zone men named yesterday in the 
overseas casualties were Lieut. Guy Lawrence 
of Col. Henry J. Reilly's One Hundred and 
Forty-ninth Field artillery, who was gassed, 
but survived; Private Charles Basel, 5706 
Honore street; Private Edward F. Meyers, 
Berwyn, Isadore Czarniewski, -- West 
Eighteenth place, and Joseph Kasper, 115 
Bunker street, all killed in action.

Private Meyers, whose address was incorrectly 
given as Berwyn, Pa., lived in the Chicago 
suburb with his father, William Meyers. He was 
22 years old and was among the first national 
army men to go to France. He was formerly 
employed by the Western Electric company.

Private Basel was formerly a carrier in the 
Chicago postal service. He entered the national 
army about a year ago. Both of his parents were 
born in Germany.

Lieut. Paul W. Derrickson, killed in action, was 
listed as from Norfolk, Va., but he had made his 
home in Chicago for some time and had many friends 
here.

NEW YORK NOTES FROM THE TIMES:
===============================
James H. Scarr, head of the New York City Weather
Bureau, received a telegram from Washington Monday
announcing the death in action of his son, First
Lieutenant James S. Scarr of the regular army.
Lieutenant Scarr went into the army within a few
days after Congress declared war, and was one of
the first graduates of the officers' training
camp at Fort Myer, Va.
On his graduation from the Fort Myer training camp,
Lieutenant Scarr was made a junior officer of the 
30th Infantry, then at Syracuse, N.Y.   He was
promoted to First Lieutenant last November and made
one of the battalion Adjutants of the regiment.  In
France, Lieutenant Scarr finished the course in the
battle training school for officers with a general
average of 98 percent.
Lieutenant Scarr was engaged to marry Miss Grace
Webb, daughter of Mayor and Mrs. George H. Webb, of
Hasbrouck Heights, N.J.  In a letter to his fiancee,
dated May 30, just six days before he was killed, he
spoke of an impending attack and said that a Captain
and himself had figured out a new plan of attack and
expected to submit it to their commanding officer
the following morning.
In another letter, to his parents, written a short
time before his death, Lieutenant Scarr inclosed a 
clipping from a European newspaper as follows:
 God, who gavest men eyes to see a dream;
 God, who gavest men hearts to follow the gleam;
 God, who gavest men stars to find the heaven by;
 God, who madest men glad at need to die;
 Lord, from the hills again we hear the drum;
 God, who lovest free men,
 Lead on.  We come.
That poem, said Mr. Scarr last night, expressed his
son's views with regard to this war.

Private Joseph Leiter, named in yesterday's list from
General Pershing as among those killed in action, was
a nephew of Mrs. Rebecca Spiegel, of 82 Ridge Street,
this city [New York].  He was a sharpshooter and a 
member of the 28th Infantry.

Private Andrew Freeman, severely wounded, is a 
brother of Mrs. Pauline Ellenbogen of 500 East 163d 
Street.  Freeman has a brother Max, who, when last
heard from, was in the Austrian Army, into which he
had been impressed, his sister says, although he is
an American citizen.

Frank McCarthy, mentioned as wounded severely in 
the Marine Corps casualty list, is 20 years old and
was born in Beacon, N.Y.  The family lives at 311
South Eleventh Street, Newark.
