Carl Walling to Be Buried With Military Honors

Returned to his native land for burial, the body of Carl Walling, overseas veteran, killed near Soissons, will be given full military honors at the funeral to be held from the parlors McEntee & Eiler at Sixteenth and Everett streets Friday afternoon at 1 o’clock.

Walling, a son of Mr. and Mrs. F.E. Walling of 235 Halsey street, enlisted in Battery A as a bugler in April, 1917, and was attached to the Thirty-second division until August, 1918, when he was transferred to the headquarters company as an artillery observer with the rate of corporal.  During the action about the town of Juvigny, north of Soissons, Walling was killed while advancing along the front line of the trenches to take up his post as observer.  Walling was buried in France by the headquarters company, and under the recent orders of the war department the body was exhumed and brought to Portland, arriving Tuesday afternoon.

Walling is survived by his parents and two sisters, Miss Gladys Walling and Mrs. O. Hollingsworth of Portland.
