17-YEAR OLD BOY IS KILLED IN BATTLE
Lyndon, Kansas, Nov. 9.--A 17-year old boy's eagerness to fight for his country and avenge the wrongs suffered by Belgium and France has resulted in the supreme sacrifice for Charles Thomas Jessop. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. James A. Jessop, of this town, have received official word that their son has met a hero's death--killed in action--on September 29, in the battle of the Argonne forest. Both Charles and his older brother, Frank, enlisted soon after America entered the war. Young Jessop was said to have been "Kansas' youngest soldier over there."
