Oscar C. Munson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles J. Munson of Moscow, is believed to have been aboard the troop transport Tuscania, that was sunk by a German sub, Wednesday night [February 6]. Mr. Munson enlisted in the 20th Engineers at Spokane in December. For the past month or more, he, with others, has been stationed at Washington, D.C. His friends here had received word that he expected to be ordered to France and dispatches report members of the 20th among the survivors. Enlisting as a private Munson had been raised to rank of top sergeant. Prior to his enlistment he had been chief fire warden of one of the fire protective districts in this county and Clearwater. Owing to the duties of this position he was unable to accept a commission within reach during the summer. Mr. Munson was well known in University circles, having spent three years as a student in the forestry department and was a prominent member of Sigma Nu fraternity.
