ALVIN PLOECKELMANN Ploeckelmann Praised For Part He Took In The Invasion Aboard the U.S. Assault Transport Thomas Jefferson, June 7 Delayed- The Coxwains of American small landing craft took an awful beating in the invasion beaches for their ability to take it. Among those singled out for praise by Lieutenant William D. Steel of Long Island, N.Y., a veteran of four invasions who was in charge of the boats, was Coxwain Alvin H. Ploeckelmann of Two Rivers, Wis. Ploeckelmann and a number of others were described by Steel as out- standing for efficiency and bravery. For two days and nights the coxwains faced terrific fire from shore batteries and machine guns and took their boats through mine fields and underwater obstacles, through blinding smoke and gunfire, to land the first waves of soldiers on the beaches. Some boats made two trips. All returned safely and not a single sailor lost his life although some soldiers were killed while in the boats and on landing. This is not the first time that Ploeckelmann has played a part in an invasion. A year ago, during the Allied invasion of Sicily, Ploeckelmann was coxswain of the third landing boat to leave on of the invasion transports. Ploeckelmann's landing craft took a heavy bulldozer ashore and was bombed and strafed by German planes. Ploeckelmann picked up a drowned soldier on his way back to the transport and another one later. In the two days which followed, he made 25 round trips with only a two hour nap and coffee and sandwiches for food. He carried half tracks, water, food, ammunition, wire netting, barracks bags and trucks to the beach. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Ploeckelmann, Lake(?) street, Two Rivers.

FREDERICK RAATZ Experiment Proves Fatal To Electrical Worker FRED RAATZ, 26, KILLED AS HE WORKS AT BENCH "Steps Up" City Current From Light Plug to 450 Volts At Automotive Co. Workshop Experimenting with a new soldering iron, which he had just purchased, and which he sought to convert to use from an A-C light socket in the wall, instead of through the use of a storage battery, by utilizing a transformer from an old B eliminator set in a radio, proved fatal to Fred Raatz, 26, Two Rivers, an employee of the Automotive Electric Co., Washington street, shortly before five o'clock yesterday afternoon. For instead of stepping down the current, as the electrician figured he was doing, tests by the city employees this morning disclosed to 450 volts from the regular 110 volts of A.C. curtent. Raatz died almost instantly. When the young man showed signs of distres while standing at his bench, in the workshop of the Automotive Co., a fellow workman, Lester Parworth, Route 7, instantly pulled the plug from the light socket in the wall. Raatz turned from the bench, after putting down the soldering outfit, and toppled to the floor. Fellow employees quickly summoned physicians, and Dr. Hoffman, the first to arrive, pronounced the young man dead. There were no burns showing on the body, although it was badly discolored. Coroner Kemper was notified and after viewing the body and being advised of the circumstances decided that no inquest would be necessary. The body was removed to the Jansky undertaking parlors in Two Rivers and burial will take place there on Thursday. Came Here from Milwaukee Raatz entered the employ of the Automotive Electric Co. here about a year ago. Prior to that time he was employed at a garage in Milwaukee, specializing in ignition repair work on autos and radiator repair. It was interest in this class of work that led the young mechanic to start experimenting yesterday with a contrivance that caused his death. A new soldering iron, with a series of "tips" making it useful in his line of work caught Raatz's eye. He purchased it. Bringing the new iron, which operated from a six volt car storage battery, to the workshop he talked with Manager Martin Ulrich regarding his plans to make available use of the soldering iron from the wall socket, using regular AC current, by means of a transformer taken from an unused B battery eliminator, formerly used in an old radio set. That was about four o'clock yesterday afternoon. Mr. Ulrich left the shop to go out on a job and Raatz set to work on his experiment. Fellow Workman Pulls Plug He first hooked up the tiny transformer and set of coils taken from the B eliminator with the two terminals of the electric solding iron. He fixed up a set of terminals on the other side of the transformer to plug into the light socket. All these connections were still intact after the fatal accident, so that the scene of what took place could be re-enacted today at the work shop. It was probably the theory of Raatz that he could step down the A.C. current of 110 volts to about 20 volts, and make it available for use in the soldering set. Suddenly there was noticeable trembling of Raatz's body as he stood at his bench. Parworth, working within a few feet of him, sensed that something was wrong and pulled the plug from the light socket. Raatz was still able to put down the soldering iron, which he had in his hands, but almost immediately fell to the floor beside his work bench. When aid came employees were surprised to learn from the physicians that Raatz was (Continued on Page 11) FRED RAATZ, 26, KILLED AS HE WORKS AT BENCH (Continued from page 1) dead. Investigation of the newly made outfit this morning by meter men from the city utility plant disclosed that the way Raatz had the contrivance hooked up 450 volts were developed. He had stepped up the current instead of stepping it down. The death of Raatz cast a pall of sorrow among the employees at the Automotive Co. where he was regarded as an industrious worker and experienced in electrical and radiator repair work. Although making his home with his wife at Two Rivers, he was employed continuously in the Washington street work rooms of the company here. Funeral services for Mr. Raatz will be held from Emanuel Evangelical church at two o'clock Thursday afternoon with the Rev. Franklin E. Schlueter officiating. Mr. Raatz, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Raatz, was born near the village of Shoto April 22, 1905. His parents moved to this city a number of years ago. The young man attended the rural school in his early boyhood and also attended the Washington high school at Two Rivers for three years. On November 19, 1927 he was married at Algoma to Olive Maedke and have made their home in Two Rivers since, residing at 1109 School street. The couple had no children. Mr. Raatz after leaving high school worked at Plant No. 1 of the Aluminum Goods Mfg. Co. rolling mill at Two Rivers, for one year, later going to Milwaukee to learn the automotive trade in a trade school. Besides his widow and parents he leaves a sister, Martha Raatz, at home.

Manitowoc, a driver of the Manitowoc-Two Rivers bus for more than 25 years, who died Saturday, will be held at the Klein and Sangel Inc., Funeral home, Two Rivers, at 2 p.m. Tuesday. The Rev. M. J. Roehrdanz of the Emanuel Evangelical United Brethren Church, Two Rivers, will officiate and interment will be in the family plot at Forest View Cemetery, Two Rivers. Mr. Schlager, a friendly man admired by the many patrons of the Safeway Motor Coach Company in Two Rivers and Manitowoc, was stricken with a cerebral hemorrhage at his home Monday, Oct. 20, and removed to the Holy Family Hospital at Manitowoc Wednesday. Before driving bus for the transport firm he was a conductor motorman of the Manitowoc & Northern Traction Company for years. Having driven the Manitowoc-Two Rivers bus hundreds of thousands of miles during his 26 years of service, company records revealed a remarkable safety record for Mr. Schlager, who never had a single traffic accident attributable to him. “Mr. Schlager, indeed, was one of our outstanding employes,” Ralph Crocker, head of the Safeway Motor Coach Company, said. “This kindly man who made thousands of friends for our company never was late in all his years of employment with us. It is a distinct loss to our company.” Plans already had been put in a tentative stage by the Two Rivers Chamber of Commerce to honor Mr. Schlager for his exceptional services with a testimonial dinner at the annual meeting of the organization at the Elks Club in Two Rivers next February. Emil Schlager was born in the Town of Kossuth in 1896, a son of the late Joseph and Jane Eternsky Schlager. In his boyhood days he lived at Branch where his father operated a meat market. Later the family came to Manitowoc where his parents for years ran the Badger Hotel at Ninth and Buffalo Streets. Entering the Army in World War I, serving in the states, he became a motorman- conductor on the Manitowoc & Northern Traction Company after his discharge in 1919, operating between Two Rivers and Manitowoc. In 1926 when the Wisconsin Public Service Corporation replaced the electric interurban line with buses between the two cities, Emil Schlager who had never driven an automotive vehicle of any type previously, took over as a bus driver. In all his years he was involved in only one accident, one occurred on Legion Memorial Drive when a car drove onto the highway without stopping for the arterial sign. Mr. Schlager is survived by his wife, the former Pearl Thayer of Manitowoc, whom he married in 1919; a daughter, Mrs. J.D. Henry of Sheboygan; a son, Lester Schlager of Milwaukee; a sister, Mrs. Clara Hamernik of Manitowoc; and a brother, Joseph Schlager of Manitowoc. There are three grandchildren. For many years Mr. Schlager was affiliated with the Guy Drews Post, American Legion, Manitowoc. Friends may call at the funeral home until the time of services.
