CLINGING TO HOPE SON DIDN'T SAIL ON TITANIC

Newark Evening News

Although nothing has been heard from W. Hull Botsford, the member of the Orange Y. M. C. A., whose name appeared on the list of passengers on the Titanic, his parents have not given up hope. His father and mother live in Elmira. N. Y., and during the past week have been visited by members of the Orange association.

Mr. Botsford had been traveling in Europe, and was not expected to return until later in the season, so his parents are clinging to the hope that it as not their son who was drowned. If it should be determined that he sailed on the Titanic, memorial services will be held by the Orange association.
