=========================================================
CHICAGOAN OF 'LOST BATTALION' BADLY WOUNDED.

Lieut. Herbert F. Grobe Graduate of Fort Sheridan. 

A Chicago member of Maj. Charles W. Whittlesey's "Lost Battalion" -- 
the gallant band of Yankees which held out for five days and nights 
when cut off by the Germans in the heart of the Argonne forest and 
when asked to surrender told the enemy to "Go to hell" -- was 
reported in yesterday's casualty list as wounded severely.

He is Lieut. Herbert F. Grobe of 761 Pine avenue. He was with 
Company F. Three Hundred and Eighth infantry. He was commissioned 
at the second officers' training camp at Fort Sheridan. He was 
formerly employed in the secretary's office of the Chicago and 
Northwestern railroad. A brother, Newton W. Grobe of the Three 
Hundred and Fourth cavalary machine gun company, is now home on 
furlough.

Lieut. Archie M. Van Horn, whose name was recently carried in the 
Official casualty list as wounded, degree undetermined, was formerly 
and employe of THE TRIBUNE editorial department. He first joined the 
One Hundred and Twenty-second field artillery, in which he won his 
commission, and was later transferred to an infantry regiment, with 
which he went to France.

Lieut. Frank T. Driscoll died of pneumonia at Camp Grant. He was 
formerly in the employ of the Western Electric company and made his 
home at 3006 Fillmore street.

Relatives report that Private William A. Kovarik was wounded 
severely and gassed Nov. 11. He is with Company D. Fifty-fifth 
infantry. His home is at 3008 South Springfield avenue.

Musician H. R. Vanderwort, Jr., headquarters company, One Hundred 
and Twenty-second field artillery, was gassed and wounded. He lives 
at 172 North La Vergne avenue.
