WORK IN TRENCH COSTS 'FIGHTING PARSON'S LIFE

The Rev. Herman S. Willing Contracts Pneumonia Aiding Yanks. 

One of the fighting parsons who went to France with Pershing was the 
Rev. Herman Samuel Willing, born and reared in Chicago. Barred by 
his age from enlisting in the ranks -- he was 46 -- he joined the 
Y. M. C. A. overseas service and devoted himself to work in the 
front line trenches.

When the American offensive northwest of Verdun was launched he was 
transferred to the Argonne region, where he served with Illinois 
troops of the Thirty-third division. Exposure caused him to contract 
a severe cold, but he refused to leave his post. Pneumonia developed 
and he died Nov. 22.

Since May of 1917 he had lived at Moline, where he was pastor of the 
Union Congregational church. He is survived by the widow, Mrs. Minnie 
R. Willing, and a son and daughter.

Sheridan Graduate Wounded.

Lieut. Claire Morton Daugherty, listed in the official casualties 
this morning as wounded, degree undetermined, is with the Seventy-
seventh field artillery. He was commissioned at the first Fort 
Sheridan officers' training camp. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. 
Charles M. Daugherty, 825 Eastwood avenue.

Lieut. Myron A. Kenny, who died in France of pneumonia, was with the 
Thirtieth infantry and was the son of Mrs. J. D. Kenny of 4041 Ellis 
avenue.

Another pneumonia victim was Sergt. Rialdo E. Dorman, Company H, One 
Hundred and Thirty-first infantry. His mother and father are dead. 
The widow, Mrs. Mary Dorman, lives at 2240 West Twenty-second street.

Relatives have been notified of the death of Private Patrick Sweeney, 
Three Hundred and Twenty-second infantry. He was killed in action 
Nov. 9. He formerly lived at 702 North La Salle street.

Private George Reiker, wounded slightly, is with the headquarters 
company, One Hundred and Thirtieth infanty. His father, John Reiker, 
is a cigarmaker, living at 5117 Wentworth avenue.

Corp. Robert J. Jacobs, wounded, degree undetermined, Oct. 29, is 
with the signal corps, One Hundred and Thirty-second infantry. He 
was formerly with the Chicago Telephone company. His mother, Mrs. 
Sophie Jacobs, lives at 1701 Washington boulevard.

Funeral for Aviator Today.

Miss Laura Evert of Kenilworth reports that her brother, Private 
Joseph Evert, was wounded severely Nov. 1. He is the son of John 
Evert of Gross Point.

The body of Lieut. Walter Smith Poague, who was killed in an airplane 
accident in the Azores Nov. 5, arrived in Chicago yesterday. Funeral 
services will be conducted this afternoon at 3 o'clock at the 
Woodlawn Presbyterian church at Sixty-fourth street and Kimbark 
avenue. Burial will be at Oakwoods. He was the son of Charles M. 
Poague, president of the Woodlawn Trust and Savings bank.

Hero Seeks Mother.

Sergt. Ray R. Zimmer has been invalided home from France and is now 
at the United States general hospital No. 11, Cape May, N. J. He 
writes to THE TRIBUNE that "God has spared my life and I should like 
to find my mother, whom I have not heard from in six years. She was 
then somewhere in Chicago."

Private Arthur E. Schalk, Company F, Three Hundred and Fourteenth 
ammunition train, died of pneumonia at Toul, France, Nov. 21, the 
war department has notified the parents, Herman and Hermina Schalk,
