FORT WORTH, Tex., Aug. 3-tom)
-Corp. James E. Newman, 25, who
was suffering from tuberculosis of
the throat, lungs and stomach, died
today at his home here at 5:20 p. m.
For Newman it was the end of a
tough fight for life that started when
the Japs captured him at Bataan.
He struggled through the March of
Death--he didn't remember the last
five hours of it.
He got through three years of
Japanese imprisonment; in a prison
camp in the Philippines he endured
hopeless starvation and flesh melted
,from his body.
.rDoctors at Army hospitals in New
Guinea and in New Mexico shook
their heads over him. They told him
his case was hopeless. But Newman
wouldn't give up. He wanted to go
home to Fort Worth, he said.
