WHITTLESEY WHOSE ANSWER "GO TO HELL" IN REPLY TO GERMAN PLEA FOR SURRENDER, MADE HIM FAMOUS, BELIEVED DEAD. New York, Nov. 28. Col. Charles W, Whittlesey, commander of the famous "Lost Battalion" of the world war, perished at sea while en route from New York to Havana on """ t'nited Fruit Company's liner Toloa sonic time Sunday night, according to wireless received by the company. It Is believe,! he was unnerved by recollections of the war brought forci bly to his memory by the ceremonies short for j attending the burial of America's Un known Hero, at which he acted as pallbearer. Word of the death of the noted hero, who. when his battalion was surrounded by Cernians and 8ur render had been demanded, ent back a message saving: "Go to Hell. Whittlesey," reached here today in wireless dispatches. The Information came as a distinct shock to Whittlesey's friends and to his la partners in the firm of White & Case, who were unaware that Col. Whittlesey had contemplated a trip to Havana. Col. Whittlesey left notes telling of his intended action, one directed to his father in Massachusetts, who has not yet been informed, and the other to a law partner, John I). I'ruyn of this city. The notes were discovered ! in his cabin on the Toloa soon after j his absence had been noticed. Efforts to reach Mr. I'rnvn tonihl were unavailing, hut a woman who, said she was his sister gave the fol- lowing message over the telephone: "Col. Whitiesey went to the , ter with friends last Friday night j and seemed to be in the best of spirits. He did not tell us nor any of his friends he was contemplating a sea voyage. "We are afraid the ceremony in honor of America's Unknown Hero, at which he was a pallbearer, un nerved him. Friends who saw him after the ceremony said he appeared profoundly Impressed by what had occurred. Usually of a cheerful dis position, he seemed on this occasion un warra n hibly dep ressed . "No, there was no romance. He was not engaged." Whittlesey was close to the cnlfltor nf the rnnl.-H hi r&rnnl nvftr. seas being one of continuous sacri flees for the welfare of his men. Their affection for their command ing officer was none the less marked. Whittlesey's war record is ono of tho most romantic adventures of the war. and so great was his heroism that. Gen. Pershing only recently ranked him next to Sergt. Woodflll as one of America's foremost heroes. He received decorations from vir tually every government associated with the United States in the war. Col. Whittlesey's modesty was one of his characteristics. Seldom could he be brought to say anything of the famous "Go to hell" message, which rang around the world as typical of the American spirit. He was at all times, however, ready to tell of the bravery of men who fought under him. The leader of the "Ixst Battalion" was one of the first American officers to see service in France and one of the first to leave the army after the armistice and the break-up of the 308th Infantry, of which he was an officer. He went first to his family homo in Pittsfleld, Mass., and later! announced his intention of resuming ! law nraetico in New York. I His heart was as great as his back-1 bone was firm.
