Brought Comrade From New York

Leo Furlong, whose home is at Parnell, came in last Sunday morning on a short furlough. He brought the body of Fred Dvorsky, one of his own company, back to Iowa City for burial. Just as these two young men were ready to board the ship for France, both took sick with influenza. They were taken to the hospital where young Dvorsky died. Mr. Furlong returned to New York Monday night to report for duty.
