WASHINGTON, Dec. 14---Col. Spencer Cosby, chief aid to President Taft, received to-day a painting depicting the sinking of the Titanic and the rescue of some of her passengers.

Gilbert Gaul, a New York artist, offered it as a contribution to the fund being raised for a memorial in Washington to Major A. W. Butt, President Taft's former aid, and F. D. Millet, a Washington artist, who perished with the ship.

The fund for the memorial, which will stand near the White House, was raised among personal friends of Major Butt and Mr. Millet.
