On learning that William Crothers Dulles, a lawyer, 316 S. 12th st., was not among the survivors on the rescue ship Carpathia, friends and relatives here have given up all hope of his escape. Mr. Dulles, who has a summer home at Soshen, [sic; should be "Goshen"] N. Y., was returning from a visit to his moother and sister in Europe.
Dr. Charles W. Dulles, 4101 Walnut st., a cousin of the missing lawyer, stated to-day that he had given Mr. Dulles up as lost. "He was a passenger on the Titanic," Mr. Dulles said, "and as he was not among those picked up by the Carpathia, he must have perished with the others. In fact I never entertained much hope that hge had escaped."
A handsome woman, elegantly dressed, inquired at the White Star Line offices in New York last night for information regarding Mr. Dulles. When told there was no record of his rescue, she hurried to the Surveyor of the Port and got a pass to the pier for the Carpathia's arrival. She was then lost sight of. Dr. Dulles said to-day he had no knowledge of the woman's identity.
Mr. Dulles, since the death of his father twelve years ago, had always accompanied his mother on her annual trips to Europe to visit her daughter, Mrs. Ettora R. Fontana, who lives with her husband in Italy. Last December when Mrs. Dulles went abroad, Mr. Dulles did not go along but waited until January 30. He made arrangements to return home on the Titanic.
