Relatives of Private Henry J. Kaspar, an American 
ambulance driver, were pleased but not surprised 
to learn yesterday that he had been recommended 
for decoration for bravery in France.

"We knew he would win honors. He was fearless 
even back in his schooldays," said his brother, 
Frank J. Kaspar, proprietor of a grocery at 3414 
West Twenty-sixth street. "He is only 23, but he 
has been all over the United States. He was a 
motor car salesman."

For fourteen days Kaspar remained on constant 
duty, driving his car through terrific shell 
fire to aid fallen fighters at the front . 
Finally he was wounded and was taken to a 
dressing station. As he lay on the dugout floor 
he heard another ambulance driver report his 
inability to continue. He ripped the bandages 
from his eyes, took the other man's place and 
made two more trips before exhaustion compelled 
him to cease.

Three sisters of Kaspar, the Misses Victoria 
and Helen, and Mrs. Frank Hermanek, live at 
6537 University avenue. His parents are dead.

Captive Captures Captor.

Private John P. Kaulen of 510 South Leavitt 
street, was on duty in a listening post in No 
Man's land. He was surprised by three Germans, 
who overpowered him. Six more Germans ran to 
their assistance. They were forcing Kaulen 
toward their lines when he shouted for help 
and his comrades responded with hand grenades 
and rifles.

The Germans dropped to the ground, their 
leader keeping a firm grip on Kaulen, who 
struggled and finally succeeded in dragging 
the German back to the American lines. The 
prisoner wore two medals and his identity tag 
bore the name of Sergt. Maj. Steuer of the 
Eighty-third Saxon regiment. He died the next 
day.

Kaulen's father, Peter Kaulen, was born in 
Germany and came to America to escape 
oppression. The boy was formerly a baker in 
the shop of his uncle. Hubert P. Kaulen, 
Halsted and Adams streets.

Lost in Ship Crash.

Joseph M. Farley, fireman, reported lost 
yesterday in the sinking of the United States 
ship Wakiva in a collision in European waters, 
was a son of Thomas Farley, a policeman, of 
2712 North Racine avenue. Farley was 23 years 
old and enlisted at Great Lakes last September.

The name of Corporal John J. O'Mara was 
carried in the casualty list yesterday as 
severely wounded. His address was listed as 
111 West Forty-third street. No one of that 
name could be found there.
