MARINE CASUALTIES IN FRANCE TOTAL 277

General Barnett's Report Shows That the Corps Has Been Doing Full
Share of Fighting

21 OF A COMPANY KILLED

Unit of 250 Men Suffered Losses of Over 50 Per Cent. - Seven Officers 
Wounded

WASHINGTON, April 25. - Major Gen. Barnett, the commandant of the 
Marine Corps, gave out today a list of casualties sustained by the
Marine Corps in France from the time the first brigade went over with
the Pershing expedition to date.
  The list covers the whole period of the marines' fighting in France 
from the beginning, and shows that this branch of the service, which 
is part of the naval service, but whose men in France are serving 
under General Pershing, has been doing its full share of the fighting.
  The casualty list given out today contains a total of 277 names. 
It shows that seven officers and 235 men were wounded in action, also
that thirty-five enlisted men have been killed.   Of these twenty-two 
were killed outright in action, two were accidentally killed and 
eleven died of wounds received in action.
  In making the announcement, General Barnett said that no marines 
were reported missing, which means that no marines have been captured 
by the Germans.   One company in particular has had losses of over 50 
per cent.  Its identity is not disclosed.   This company, however, 
lost twenty-one men killed and 140 men wounded.  The full strength of 
a company is 250 men.
  The marine casualties to date as given out today by General Barnett 
are as follows:
