JERSEY CITY, N. J., April 18---Frederick Myles, 30 years old, of 256 Grove street, whose father, Thomas F. Myles, of Cambridge, Mass., was a passenger on the Titanic, is today locked up at the Seventh street police station for safe keeping because he was driven out of his mind by grief at the loss of his father.

Young Miles was picked up by Patrolman May of the City Hall station. May thought the man was drunk. Later, it was discovered that Myles had merely broken down inder the strain of waiting to know if his father was dead or alive.
