GARRET GLUM DIES OF BATTLE WOUNDS
Cpl. Garret J. Glum, son of Mr. and Mrs. John G. Glum, 1016 Avenue B, is dead of wounds suffered Oct. 24 on Leyte Island in the Philippines, according to word received Tuesday by his parents.
Corporal Glum was 30 years old. He had been in the army three years to the day on which he was fatally wounded, being among the early selectees to leave here when he entered the army Oct. 24, 1941.
He is the first casualty from the Bismarck area reported on Leyte since General MacArthur's troops opened the battle to recapture the Philippines recently.
Besides his parents, Corporal Glum leaves three brothers, all in the service, and five sisters, one of whom is a navy nurse. The brothers are Joseph, on board a battleship in the Pacific; George, a gunner in the navy air corps at Miami, Fla., and William, a gunner in the army air corps at Kingman, Ariz.
The sisters are Ensign Teresa Glum, in Washington, D.C.; Mrs. Charles Sally, Detroit, Mich.; Miss Violet Glum, a teacher at Anamoose, N.D.; and Evelyn and Lucille, both of whom attend St. Mary's high school here.
Corporal Glum was born on a farm south of Bismarck July 30, 1914. He attended grade school first at Hazelton, N.D., and later in Sibley Butte township. Immediately before entering the service, he had been employed by Irvin Young at the Tavern stables west of Bismarck.
He had been overseas since the spring of 1942 and had not had a furlough for a visit home since entering the service three years ago.
Note: Entered the service from North Dakota.
