TWO MORE OF CHICAGO'S WAR HEROES ARRIVE HOME FOR LAST REST
Two more of Chicago's war heroes were brought home yesterday in flag draped caskets. Both will be buried with military honors Monday.
One, Edward P. Bealin, was the only member of the Board of Trade killed in action during the war. A committee of 100 members of the Board of Trade and the Board of Trade post of the American Legion will attend the funeral services at Our Lady of Lourdes church, Leland and Ashland avenue at 9:30 a.m. Burial will be at Mount Carmel cemetery.
Mr. Bealin for several years was an active trader in the corn pit. He enlisted Sept. 20, 1917, and took part in some of the hardest battles of the war. He was killed in the last Argonne drive, Oct. 11, 1918, one month before the Armistance was signed.
