War Dept. Confirms Death of John Grice

The Rev. and Mrs. E. E. Grice of Philadelphia, Pa., recently were notified by the War Department that it had reviewed the case of their son, Lt. John Grice, and had officially confirmed his death. He had been carried as missing on the War Department records ever since his plane, a B-25, of which he was the co-pilot, disappeared in a raid on a port in New Guinea during July, 1944.

There had always been the possibility that his plane might have crashed in a remote jungle or on an island from which he could not reach the mainland. However, after long search and questioning the War Department came to the conclusion that he was lost in action.

On Sunday, March 24, the United Presbyterian church in Monmouth, Ill., held a memorial service in honor of Lt. Grice. While attending Monmouth college he had been a member of this church.

Lt. Grice was the eldest son of Rev. and Mrs. Grice. Other survivors include two brothers and the grandmothers, Mrs. Alice Yundt and Mrs. Bertha Grice.
