Nassau County Review -»-t- OfBdal Paper, ViUage of Freeport FREEPORT, N. Y., FRIDAY, p-EBRUARY 21, 1319 How Was Whittaker KiUed? There had been some rumor that Walter Whittaker, one of the colored lads of the Fifteenth Infantry, -^vas not dead. Sunday moming we met Fred Dennison, of the same Regiment, uriio incidentally was wounded on Sep¬ tember 29, and reported in the casu¬ alty list of February 11, and asked kim about this. Dennison had just re¬ turned home the night before, honor¬ ably discharged, and practically recov¬ ered from hia wound. He said that Whittaker was dead, that on a certain CTening he (Dennison) was ordered to go on guard duty, but Whittaker was substituted. In patrolling his keat, he stopped a lieutenant from Alabama, following military instruc¬ tions, and the lieutenant drew his re- Tolver and killed Whittaker instantly. Dennison says that the shell which injured him killed several of his com- ^nions who were with him at the time.

BALDWIN Washington "The main point to be kept in mind for the present is that the need for relief work will tax the power of all existing agencies, so that, from the strictly Red Cross standpoint, there need be no doubt about there being plenty to do." Knit GarmenU Are Plentiful—Refu¬ gee Garments Badly Needed The Red Cross is prepare^ to meet any demand for knitted articles for soldiers and sailors from its finished stock in hand. All requisitions from commanding officers will be promptly filled. Requisitions from other sourc¬ es, such as thoae sent to the Comforts Committee of the Navy League or to other organizations will also be tak¬ en care of after verification. Thongh Red Cross workers have been asked to cease knitting; if the need should arise the thousands of women who have been engaged in this work could immediately return to the task and promptly fill any order for knitted articles, no matter how large. There are on hand more than a mil¬ lion pairs of socks and fully a half million sweaters. This immense re¬ serve explains why it was thought ex¬ pedient to ask the Red Cross workers to cease knitting, so that they can devote their efforts to the working of r.-fui!T^e f,arnjcnt6t and hi other activi¬ ties v-hlch are immediately pressing.

How Was Whittaker KiUed?
There had been some rumor that Walter Whittaker, one of the colored lads of the Fifteenth Infantry, -^vas not dead. Sunday moming we met Fred Dennison, of the same Regiment, uriio incidentally was wounded on Sep¬ tember 29, and reported in the casu¬ alty list of February 11, and asked kim about this. Dennison had just re¬ turned home the night before, honor¬ ably discharged, and practically recov¬ ered from hia wound. He said that Whittaker was dead, that on a certain CTening he (Dennison) was ordered to go on guard duty, but Whittaker was substituted. In patrolling his keat, he stopped a lieutenant from Alabama, following military instruc¬ tions, and the lieutenant drew his re- Tolver and killed Whittaker instantly. Dennison says that the shell which injured him killed several of his com- ^nions who were with him at the time.
