Malta, Mont., Nov. 3.-Lieut. Com. Lee Pancake, 35, of the navy, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Pancake of Malta, was killed in action in the south Pacific and buried at sea, according to word received by his parents.

Pancake was born in North Dakota and came to Phillips county, Montana, about 20 years ago with his parents, who homesteaded north of Wagner. He was graduated from Malta high school and from Anapolis. His career in the navy was brilliant as is indicated by the fact that he was one of the youngest lieutenant commanders.

He was married in Maryland. His wife is living on the west coast. Other survivors are three sisters, Mrs. Carl Veseth, Malta; Mrs. Rudolph Erickson, Saco; Mrs. Gilbert P. Richardson, Chester; and four brothers, Dick of Malta; Leslie and James of Central Valley, Calif.; and Stanley of North Wagner.

No details of the action in which Pancake lost his life were learned and the name of his ship was withheld at the request of the naval officers.
