The News, October 16, 1944
SECOND LIEUT. JOHN S. BAER, 23 year old son of Dr. and Mrs. R. W. Baer, West College Terrace, was killed in action in Italy on September 24, his parents were advised Sunday in a War Department telegram. They had not heard from him for about three months.

Lieut. Baer left his studies at Gettysburg College two and a half years ago to enter the service and left Camp Meade last February for Italy, where it is presumed he has been in combat service since. He was commanding an infantry unit in Italy.

His parents were out of the city when the telegram arrived and an associate of Dr. Baer forwarded the information to him. They returned to their residence Sunday afternoon.

Lieut. Malcolm R. Baer, a brother, is with the Army in France, according to latest reports received by his parents and wife. Besides his parents and brother, Lieut. John Baer is also survived by a sister, Miss Margaret Baer.
