Flushing Officer, Who Won War
Cross, Is Again Disabled.

The name of Lieutenant J. Langdon Leslie 
of the 165th Infantry of the Rainbow 
Division, who .was reported as slightly 
wounded about two weeks ago, again appears 
in the casualty list received from General 
Pershing yesterday, and friends of 
Lieutenant Leslie are of the opinion that 
the officer has suffered his second wound 
in action. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. 
George R. Leslie of 77 Sanford Avenue, 
Flushing.

Mrs. Leslie said yesterday that the family 
received a telegram from the War Department 
Friday night announcing that her son had 
been wounded. She received a letter from 
him yesterday, dated April 11, in which he 
wrote that he had been wounded on March 20, 
but that he had recovered and gone back in 
the trenches.

Lieutenant Leslie recently won the French 
War Cross for gallantry under fire. His 
father is a member of the New York Stock 
Exchange. He is a Plattsburg training camp 
graduate, and joined the 105th Infantry 
last September.

Louis W. Prescott of the Royal Flying 
Corps, who is a Passaic (N. J.) man and a 
graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology, is reported as missing by the 
British authorities. He failed to return 
from a flight he made in Picardy on April 
22. A cablegram announcing that he has not 
been accounted for was received by 
relatives in Passaic yesterday. Lieutenant 
Prescott was 20 years old, and joined the 
Royal Flying Corps last Fall.

William F. King, reported in yesterday's 
casualty list as among those slightly 
wounded in action. is a gunner in one of 
the regular army field artillery units now 
fighting in France. He enlisted in the 
regulars In 1910 and was with one of the 
units which went to France with the first 
division of regulars. King is an orphan, 
and lived when in New York with his aunt 
Mrs. Katherine Clavin of 46 East Avenue, 
Long Island City.  He has a brother, who is 
also in the regular army.

Stricken with pneumonia when on his way to 
France to join the special French-speaking 
unit of General Pershing's headquarters, 
Cedric Alley, son of Mr. and Mrs. Horace 
Alley of Vauxhill Road, Union Township died 
on April 5, according to a telegram from the 
War Department received by his parents Friday 
night. The body is now at Newport News, 
having been brought back on the same ship on 
which he died. Alley was a former member of 
the Essex Troop, and when war was declared 
went to Anniston, Ala. He was later picked 
as one of twenty to go over as a special 
French-speaking unit, and was sent to Camp 
Green, N. C., for instruction.
