Rock Island, Ill., May 11. -- Lieut. Adrian C. Edwards of 
Carrolton, Ill., reported in today's American casualty 
list as having been killed in action in France, was 
commissioned at the second officer's training camp at Fort 
Sheridan last summer. Formerly he was assistant state's 
attorney of Rock Island. A letter received from him told 
of a narrow escape from death he had had in an engagement 
with the Germans.

Our municipal roll of honor was augmented yesterday by the 
name of a runaway lad who went off to the war, Corporal 
Arthur B. Lutterbach, killed by an accidental explosion in 
France. In the casualty dispatches were mentioned Clyde P. 
Grimm of 7339 Yale avenue and three killed and three wounded 
from contiguous Illinois territory.

Lutterbach was 19 years old when he ran away from the home 
of his father, Albert Lutterbach, 4815 Newport avenue, to 
join the army headquarters company, Ninth infantry, in 
January, 1917. He was a brother of Mrs. Arthur Werner of 
817 Belden avenue.

"This is a gay life. Shells pop around me every time I go 
out for a spin in my ambulance Ford," wrote Grimm in his 
last letter. He enlisted in an ambulance corps last June and 
sailed for France in December. In every letter to his mother 
he has related his hazardous experiences. He is 26 years 
old and unmarried.

Son of Veteran Pilot.

Joseph Leo Lamoreaux was yesterday reported as lost when the 
steamer Florence H. was internally exploded in the Atlantic 
on April 17. He was the son of Joseph Lamoreaux, 6724 
Champlain avenue, a veteran great lakes pilot, and now 
connected with the Dunham Towing and Wrecking company. The 
young man was 22 years of age and a graduate of Armour 
Institute of Technology. He was employed by the American 
Shipbuilding company of South Chicago when he enlisted in 
February in the merchant marine service. He went directly 
to New York City, and was assigned to the Florence H. as 
third assistant engineer.

Lieut. Adrian C. Edwards of Carrollton, Ill., was killed in 
action; Private William J. Hamilton of Decatur died of 
wounds, and Private Glen Hockenbery of Danville died of 
disease.

Lieut. La Rose Recovering.

Lieut. James La Rose, son of Health Commissioner James T. 
La Rose of Zion City, has been reported recovering from 
injuries received in service on the western front, in a 
letter received by Dr. La Rose. Lieut. La Rose entered 
service with the Canadian air forces.

Corporal James B. Ives of Battery D. Three Hundred and Thirty-
third light field artillery, who was killed on Thursday while 
at work with the battery, was borne to the grave from the home 
at 7117 Aberdeen street yesterday by soldiers of the battery 
led by Capt. H. L. Linn. Sergt. Frank R. Ives of Camp Mills, 
Newport News, attended the funeral.

PHOTO CAPTION: CLYDE GRIMM, ambulance driver in the medical 
department, U. S. A., was seriously wounded on April 26 in 
France while driving his machine. He is the son of Mrs. Sarah 
J. Grimm, 7339 Yale avenue, and enlisted last June. He was 
formerly a linotype operator, is 26 years old and unmarried.

JOSEPH LEO LAMOREAUX, son of Joseph Lamoreaux of 6724 
Champlain avenue, was lost when the steamship Florence H. 
exploded on April 17. He was third assistant engineer on the 
vessel, having graduated from the engineering course at Armour 
institute. He had been with the American Ship-building company 
before enlisting in the merchant marine.
