SUMMARIES OF LOSSES SUF-
FERED BY AMERICANS.
Total Is 56,592, of Whom 17,434 Are
Classified as Missing or Captured.—
Hundred and Eighteen Prisoners
Died in Captivity.
Washington.—Official tables of the
major buttle casualties of the Amer-.
i*an forces in France, made pub
lie February 1 by General March, chief
of staff, slimy that approximately 10,-
000 men remain wholly unaccounted
for nearly three months after the end
ing of hostilities. The deaths, miss-
ing ami known prisoners are tabulated
up to January 10 for
each of the
thirty combatant divisions of General
1'ersliing's army. The total is #U,o02,
°f whom 17,434 are classified as miss-
ing or captured. An appended sinte-
ment shows tliut only twenty-nine
American military prisoners were be-
lleved to lie still in Germany on Jun-
nary S, and that 4NU0 prisoners had
been checked up as returned and 118
died in captivity.

however, that the majority of the 10,
000 finally will lie aililisl to the roil of
honor in ihe tallies of those killed or
died of wounds, nqw recorded us 30,
158 men.
To that figure, also, must he added
1551 men of tiie marine brigade, figures
for which, not carried in the laides,
were obtained from officiai sources.
This brings tiie grand aggregate of
deaths from battle up to 40.709 on re
turns estimated officially to lie 95 per
cent complete. As figures on missing
and prisoners of the marines are lack
ing, the number of unaccounted for
which finally will be added to the roll
of tiie dead cannot lie accurately esti
mated.
The army tables, however, give a to
tal of 14,619 men missing In action, and
2785 known prisoners, making up the
17,434 missing or captured. The army
rolls record 4918 American military
prisoners accounted for. Admittedly,
there are many possibilities of error,
but the statement says it is anticipated
that the indicated unaccounted for list
of 12,516 will be brought "down to less
than 10,000."
