MISSING IN ACTION.

PRIVATE.

Ray H. Aseltine, Lansing, Mich.

A telegram from the war department, "Killed in action", 
brought the news of her youngest son's supreme sacrifice 
for his country yesterday to Mrs. Catherine Cotter of 
3627 Sheffield avenue. He is First Sergeant Martin Cotter, 
and he died in battle on May 8. There are six other sons, 
two of whom expect to answer the call to the colors soon.

"I am still with the galloping machine gun battery", 
Sergt. Cotter wrote in his last letter, "and it's sure 
some outfit. Well, it ought to be. Look who's first sergeant."

He was among the men who went over the border with Pershing 
at the time of the Mexican crisis. He went to France direct 
from Texas, and was in Paris for the Fourth of July 
celebration last year.

Sent Hun Helmet.

A Hun helmet, the trophy for which each American soldier 
strives, had just been received by Mrs. Lena A. Hamilton of 
Decatur, Ill., when telegraphic news came that her son, 
William J. Hamilton, had died of wounds. Although in the 
medical division, he had applied for service with the tanks 
and was eagerly awaiting his transfer order.

Hamilton was attending the University of Illinois when the 
United States entered the war. He enlisted in the ambulance 
division and was sent to France with Harvard ambulance unit 
No. 10.

Lieut. Adrian C. Edwards, whose death was reported May 10, 
was a graduate of the second officers' training school at 
Fort Sheridan, where he won his commission. He left for 
France in January. He had qualified as an expert in machine 
gun operation and was attached to the First brigade of that 
arm of the service. He was formerly a practicing attorney 
at Carrollton, Ill., where his widowed mother lives.

Dies in Camp.

Private William Naens, Company F. One Hundred and Fourteenth 
ammunition train, died yesterday at Camp Beauregard, La., of 
natural causes. His Chicago address was given as 842 Wells 
street, but no one could be found there who knew him.

Other Chicagoans named in the casualty list yesterday as 
wounded in action were Corporal Odin Alexander Thomasen, 
2155 Summerdale avenue, and Privates Joseph Conor Lamb, 116 
Columbia avenue; Clarence Otho Bruner, 3135 West Monroe 
street; Arnold Roman Wilmanns, 2506 Orchard street; all 
members of the United States marine corps.

Wilmanns, 23 year old son of Augustus C. Wilmanns, enlisted 
last June. He is a graduate of Lane Technical High school. 
In a letter dated March, 31, he wrote:

Writes of the Trenches.

"I have just returned from the front line trenches. Our 
company was the first of the marines to take over a sector 
in France. It is impossible to do much writing in the 
trenches. From 4 o'clock until dawn every one stands by on 
the firing step.

"Here is where we see the sun rise and the dawn of a new 
day, to the accompaniment of machine gun fire, which is 
the good morning of the trenches. When we get the word 
from our officers we beat it back to the dugout and hit 
our bunks for some sleep. It's good to get THE TRIBUNE 
over here -- makes it seem more like home. When you come 
right down to it, it's a great little world. One of these 
fine days things will take a turn for the better, and we 
will all set helm for home once more."

Lambs Are Fighting Lions.

Private Joseph Conor Lamb of the Sixth marines, reported 
wounded in action in France, comes of fighting stock. 
Three brothers are now in the service. Joseph, 22 years 
old, is in the marine corps; Frank, 20, is training for 
the aviation service at Miami, Fla.; and Leo, 16, is also 
in the marine corps. He had to obtain special permission 
to join.

Mrs. Mary Lamb of 1116 Columbia avenue, the proud mother 
of these fighting lads, last night showed a reporter for 
THE TRIBUNE the last letter she had received from her 
boy. It read in part:

"Of course, some of us will never return. We have to 
expect that. But if I am one of the 'some never to 
return' you can rest assured that I died doing the best 
I could. And you can tell the world that."

During the last Liberty loan campaign Mrs. Lamb 
conducted a booth at the southwest corner of State and 
Madison streets.

"I feel I must work as hard as my boys in the trenches," 
she said last night.

SERGT. MARTIN COTTER, one of the volunteers in the first 
contingent of the American expeditionary force to reach 
France, reported killed in action in the casualty list 
of yesterday. He was the youngest of seven sons. The 
mother Mrs. Catherine Cotter, a widow, lives at 3627 
Sheffield avenue.

PRIVATE WILLIAM J. HAMILTON, who died of wounds, was a 
University of Illinois student, when he enlisted in the 
ambulance division July 2, 1917. He went to France with 
Harvard ambulance unit No. 10.

PRIVATE CLARENCE OTHO BRUNER, Sixth regiment, United 
States marines, reported wounded in action; was married 
shortly before leaving for France and while he is 
serving his country Mrs. Bruner is earning her own 
livelihood. She lives at 3135 West Monroe street.

LEUT. ADRIAN C. EDWARDS, whose death was reported May 
10, was a lawyer at Carrollton, Ill., when he entered 
the second officers' training camp at Fort Sheridan. He 
went to France last January and was in command of a 
section of the machine gun division.

CORPORAL ODIN ALEXANDER THOMASEN of the United States 
marine corps, reported wounded in action yesterday. He 
enlisted soon after the president's call for volunteers 
last year. His Chicago home is at 2155 Summerdale avenue.

PRIVATE JOSEPH CONOR LAMB, another Sixth regiment marine, 
reported wounded, is a son of Mrs. Mary Lamb, 1116 
Columbia avenue, and before enlisting last June was a 
student at Sacred Heart College, Denver, Colo.
