Abstract: Let $ \Lambda$ be a connected tame hereditary algebra over an algebraically closed field. We show that if $ \Lambda=kQ$ is of type $ \widetilde{\mathbb{A}}_n$, $ \widetilde{\mathbb{D}}_n$, $ \widetilde{\mathbb{E}}_6$ or $ \widetilde{\mathbb{E}}_7$, then every Gabriel-Roiter submodule of a quasi-simple module of rank $ 1$ (i.e. a simple homogeneous module) has defect $ -1$. In particular, any Gabriel-Roiter submodule of a simple homogeneous module yields a Kronecker pair, and thus induces a full exact embedding of the category $ \mod k\widetilde{\mathbb{A}}_1$ into $ \mod\Lambda$, where $ \widetilde{\mathbb{A}}_1$ is the Kronecker quiver. Consequently, we obtain that all quasi-simple modules are Gabriel-Roiter factor modules.
