Ambulancier Killed in Italy

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A cablegram just received in Washington announces that Richard Cutts Fairfield, of New Ipswich, N. H., and New York City, who had been admitted this fall as a Freshman, was killed while on duty in the ambulance corps on the Italian front. He is the first American to die in the ambulance service in Italy.

Fairfield was graduated from St. George's School at Newport last June, passed his examinations for admittance into the College, but did not register in September. Shortly afterward he joined the Wynne Bevan Ambulance Corps, an English organization. He was only 18 years old, the youngest of the five Americans in the Bevan service, and also the youngest American in any branch of the army in Italy. The other members of the ambulance corps are English citizens.
