Gregory Alan Dorian, 1222 East Sixtyfifth street, Chicago.

Chicago's list of heroes was augmented yesterday, the 
overseas casualties carrying the names of Privates Frank 
Bretschneider, reported missing in action, and Charles L. 
Carlson, reported slightly wounded.

Bretschneider, whose home is at 1612 South Loomis street, 
is believed to be a German prisoner. His brother, Anton, 
lives at that address. Bretschneider worked as a cabinet-
maker in Chicago until the Mexican crisis in 1916, when 
he enlisted in the regular army and went to the border. 
He left for France last November.

Wrote on March 31.
His last letter to his brother tells of his eagerness for 
action. The letter was dated March 31. Anton Bretschneider 
received official notification yesterday from Washington 
that Frank was "missing.'

Private Carlson was a traveling saleman and enlisted from 
St. Louis when the United States entered thel war last 
April. His sister, Mrs. Charles Palm, 1439 North Irving 
avenue, told of his martial ambitions yesterday.

"He told us he would never come home without the Kaiser's 
ear and he will make good." she said. "Charles always 
finishes everything he starts. The last time he wrote me 
he told of having joined a 'Billy Sunday' club and 
explained that a man sort of likes to have religion when 
he doesn't know what's going to happen to him.'"

Marine Dies of Wounds.

Private Gregory Alan Dorian of the marine corps died of 
wounds received in action April 30, according to 
telegraphic notification received yesterday from the war 
department by his mother, Mrs. Annie f. Dorian of 1226 
East Sixty-third street. He was 19 years old and 
enlisted in the marines last May. Prior tohis enlistment 
he was a student in the Hyde Park High school.

"I am proud of my boy," said Mrs. Dorian last night. "I 
am a widow and he was my only child. He has sacrificed 
himself for his country, and al though the loss seems 
more than I can bear, I can only say that I could wish 
nothing more of him."

Slain Aviator Honored.

The Western Society of Engineers added the first gold 
star to its service flag last night in commemoration 
of the death in action of Lieut. Kenneth Copley of the 
aviation service. Copley, who is a Chicago boy, was a 
student member of the society.

He graduated last spring from Lewis Institute of 
Technology, entering immediately the ground aviaton 
school of the University of Illinois at Champaign. As 
soon as he had finished his training he went to France. 
Two weeks before he left for the front he was married. 
Mrs. Copley is at present engaged in war work in a 
government office at Washington.
