Ottawa, Ont., May 8. -- R. Wilkie of Chicago is reported 
among the wounded in today's Canadian casualty list.

The next of kin of Sergeant Joseph Stonina, a prisoner, 
previously reported missing, is Mrs. Katherine Stonina,
13 Granite St., Webster, Mass.  The next of kin of 
Lieutenant Edgar B. Noland, previously reported missing
in action, now reported a patient in a hospital, is 
B. F. Boland, Leesburg, Loudon County, Va.

John Dennis Linton won't ever get the box of goodies his 
mother packed yesterday to send to him in France, for 
while she was yet at her pleasant task there came an 
official dispatch from Washington relating the boy's 
death in action on April 28.

John S. Linton of 3415 West Sixtysecond place, father 
of the hero, is in Pennsylvania on business; so the 
mother was alone with four other and younger children 
last night as she told of the patriotic youth who 
enlisted a year ago at the age of 16 years. He entered 
training at Jefferson Barracks and sailed for France 
last May. He formerly attended Tilden High school. He 
was a large, well developed lad, and thus was able to 
evade the minimum age enlistment regulation.

Corporal J. B. Ives of 7117 Aberdeen street was killed 
yesterday morning at Camp Grant, Rockford, following 
maneuvers with his regiment, the Three Hundred and 
Thirty-second field artillery. Following a hitching 
drill the battery was leaving the parade ground. Ives 
was sitting at the brake of his carriage, was jolted 
off, and a wheel passed over his chest. He was 26 
years old and unmarried.

Killed on Aviation Field.

William Wellington Smith, a student aviator, whose 
home was in Paw Paw, Ill., was killed in a fall 
Tuesday at Scott field, St. Louis, the first fatality 
there since the field was opened early in 1917.

Mentioned in the overseas casualty list yesterday 
were Corporal Gerald D. Whitney of St. Charles, 
Ill.; Corporal David A. Saunders of 3748 Ellis avenue, 
born in Canada, and Private Jaroslav Sruta of 1807 
South Throop street, the two former as severely 
wounded.

Corporal Whitney was 20 years old in March, is a son 
of Merritt Whitney of St. Charles, and was a student 
in the second year of high school when the United 
States declared war.

Sruta was one of a group of Bohemian friends who had 
for a rendezvous the tiny confectionery store of 
Bohoes J. Nusl at 1807 South Throop street. In June 
they all enlisted. Nusl each month sends each an 
allotment of candy and tobacco.

Corporal Saunders' "next of kin" was stated as 
Frank H. Durant of 4356 Lake Park avenue, for he 
himself was an orphan. "This is his second severe 
wound," Mr. Durant said last night. "He enlisted in 
April last year and went to Frances with Pershing.

Rejection Didn't Stop Him.

Canadian casualty reports yesterday told of the 
wounding in the face of Richard W. Wilkies of 1247 
South Peoria street. He was rejected by the doctors 
at Jefferson Barracks last July, so he enlisted in 
the Canadian forces.

When the steamship Tyler was torpedoed, May 2, one 
of the members of the armed guard, Earl George De 
Lacy of 3239 Wilton avenue, was lost, it was 
reported yesterday.

In a recent letter to his sister Evelyn he wrote: 
"I sure will be glad when Old Bill runs up the 
white flag and hands his sword over, and I step 
on an old transport and she starts steaming 
toward old America."
