By Plain Dealer's Leased Wire New York, April 18--Arthur White, once a rich English barber and known in England as the soap wrapper king, is among those lost on the Titanic. White used to advertise extensively for soap wrappers which commanded a premium. Another of the lost is Gus Whiteman, head barber of the White Star fleet. He always shaved J. P. Morgan on board and the financier would let no one else attend him. Whiteman lived near Philadelphia and leaves a family.
