Special to the Gazette. Iowa City, Ia, March 24 - Corp. Raymond J.
White has returned to Iowa City, practically well again after suffering
since October, 1918, because of mustard gassing in the Argonne forest.
He was also shot in the foot, the side and the hand, but those wounds
healed promptly, last fall. The gassing kept him in the hospital from
Oct 30, to a few weeks ago. He was unconscious after being prostrated
for hours, and was left "for dead" on the field, his comrades thinking
that the shell had killed him. White's adventures were other-wise
thrilling, at St. Mihiel, Verdun, Champagne and in the Meuse-Argone
campaign. During the period from August to the close of October, he had
but four days, when he was not under shellfire, with Company D, 358th
Infantry, 90th Division.
Lawrence Schenck, of Iowa City, was killed by a machine gun bullet, as
he stood less than two feet from White. James Stinocher, another Iowa
City boy, was hit by a shell a few feet away, and his leg was torn off.
He died in the hospital as a result. The former was in White's platoon,
and Stinocher was in his squad. Stinocher's brother died in camp in
