It is feared that a Cambridge man was among those who lost their lives, and great anxiety is felt by his parents, who live in Cambridge, and relatives and close friends, as to his safety. We refer to Mr. A. W. Barringer, a native of Cambridge, who went out on the Titanic on her maiden voyage in the capacity of steward. on Wednesday his wife, who lives at Southampton, and has two children, telegraphed to her husband's father to the effect that she had not then received any news as to whether her husband was alive or not. Nothing definite had been heard up till last (Thursday) night. Mr. William Barringer, the father, lives at 13 Thoday Street, Cambridge, and is an ex-constable, having served for twenty-five years in the Borough Police. He is now employed at Histon by Messrs.. Chivers and Sons.

Mr. Barringer, jun., left Cambridge some fifteen years ago, when he joined the Union Castle Line at Southampton. He was afterwards connected with the American line, and for some years he has been employed by the White Star line. Among the famous vessels on which he has held the position of steward are the Adriatic and the Olympic.
