Hero Reported Dead Is Decorated for Meritorious Service on Field of Battle. Wounded Forty-Four Times In At tempting to Clean Out Machine Gun Nest at Chateau Thierry Wife Insisted He Wasn't Dead. Omaha, Neb. Lieut. "Big Jim" Han bery, formerly a teacher in Kansas Manual Training Normal at Pittsburg, Kan., who was "killed" at Chateau Thierry, and for whom funeral serv ices and memorial exercises were held in Pittsburg, Tulsa and Enid, Okla, and several other places, was called before the commandant at Fort Crook and before 1.000 soldiers decorated with the distinguished service cross for meritorious service on the field of battle in France. Before pinning the cross on his breast the commanding officer read to Hanbery a personal letter from Gen eral Pershing and another from Gov ernor Allen of Kansas, each commend ing him for the service he had per formed. Although he was officially "killed" at Chateau Thierry, Hanberj Is now a newspaper reporter in Omaha. Wounded Forty-Four Timet. Briefly, this was the service for which Hanbery was decorated: At Chateau Thierry he undertook, with a platoon of men, to clean out a German machine gun nest. He was wounded 44 times, left for dead on the battlefield for 36 hours, crawled and rolled three miles to the American lines, spent many months In a hos pital and today carries one bullet In his body and four pieces of a high-explosive shell In his head. "Big Jim" (he stands six feet two inches In his bare feet) was teaching at Pittsburg when the war broke out. He didn't wait for the draft, but en listed at once. He went through one of the training camps, was commis sioned lieutenant and married to Miss Nellie Crane, teacher in the same school at Pittsburg. He was lieuten ant of Company L, Fifty-ninth Infan try, Fourth division, and In this ca pacity went to France. The War department cabled his wife In Pittsburg and his parents In Enid of his "death." When the funeral serv ices were arranged Mrs. Hanbery re fused to attend. - "Jim Is not dead," she insisted. Everybody pitied her. But she insisted "Jim is not dead." Paper Played Up His Death.

They wanted to keep them to read in after years. Now "Big Jim" has them all nicely rsted in a scrapbook and can read his own obit uary whenever he pleases. In addition to the clippings there are, half a hun dred telegrams of sympathy, the offi cial notice from the War department and several soliciting letters from dealers In tombstones and monuments. But Mrs. "Big Jim" Insisted Jim was not dead. One day a couple of months aftet "Big Jim's" funeral services, Mrs Hanbery received a letter from Lieu tenant Hanbery. He was all shot to pieces and In a hospital In France, but getting along pretty well. "I told you Jim wasnt dead, was about her only comment. In time Hanbery was brought back to the States, spent many months in a hospital and finally was well enougl to get back to work. He came tc Omaha and became a newspaper re porter. And that's why he was called down to Fort Crook and In the presence of the entire garrison, officers of the Sev enth army corps area, officers from Fort Omaha, members of the War Mothers, Overseas Girls and other pa triotic organizations had pinned to his breast the bronze distinguished serv ice cross Do You Remember This One It was just ten years ago and just such a clear crisp New Years as this bids fair to be. We took part in a picnic out at the Petrified Forest and on the way home the doughty fifty horse power Kissel Car, owned by a certain El Paso banker who shall be nameless, baulked at the hill just beyond the spot where it rises beyond the cement bridge over the Little Colorado. But ' then there was no cement bridge, just the old steel one which fell during the flood several years ago when the St. Johns reservoir went on a rampage. That was before the days when a driver expected his car to climb anything short of a stone wall, and we spent some little time making the ascent, but at last, tired, hot, and dusty, we finally reach ed Holbrook, but a much smaller Holbrook than we see now. Then in the evening there was a dance. It was a genuine old fashioned dance, too. Held down in the old Woods Hall, and tired as we were we had the time of our lives. There was a pile of odoriferous, drying hides in one corner and the floor wasn't very smooth, but we didn't mind that. Teep's office in the front corner kind'o nar rowed down the space at the door but there was still plenty of room for the "stags'.' to congregate in the draughty spot. And DANCE say, the way we danced then was really exercise, two-step, and waltz, with about" every fourth dance a quadrille, made you hustle to catch up with your breath. Well, we are not in the lightweight class now, and we weren't then, and as we watched the lighter ones whirled through the mazes of 'cage the bird' or 'go to jail' and 'all go to church', we decided that if they had us in a set they wouldn't find the swinging quite so easy. But we know more about it now, for the next set was ours and the masculine part of it was a husky bunch. There was John Divelbess, Geo. Hennessey, Emmet Wal lace, and Harry Jamison from Denver, and what they didn't know about a square dance you could put in a gnat's eye. Geo. Hennessey did the calling and the fun was on. The spectators sitting on the boards around the hall laughed until they nearly knocked the slivery planks from their supporting stools and kegs, and still the dance went on. By the time it was over there wasn't a single speck of breath left to us and we had been swung clear off the floor so many times we'd lost count. But we had a wonderful time although some of the young snips looked disdainful and talked longingly of a new dance 'the one-step' which was just coming in, and which was sure to be a huge success, but they were afraid to risk it that night as it might be too much of an inno vation. Thus do we travel on through the years even in Hol brook. So perhaps you'll see why, when we read the following poem handed to us by W. B. Cross and publish- EBB mm rem:" DMDABILITY LOW OPERATING COST OVER 700,000 OVNERS JENNINGS AUTO C0R1PANY Holbrook, Arizona ed in K. Lamity's "Harpoon" of Texas, it brought btfck pleasant memories, and we stopped awhile and read it again and dreamed a little of things that are past and gone and finally decided to hand it on to you, dear read er, and in memory of this far past New Year to wish you "many more and happy memories."
