POSTPONE RYERSON FUNERAL

Evening Bulletin

Services for Youth Killed by Motor Deferred Pending Arrival of Relatives Rescued From Titanic
---
The funeral of young Arthur L. Ryerson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Ryerson, of Haverford, who was killed in a motor car accident with John Lewis Hoffman, son of Mrs. J. Ogden Hoffman, also of Haverford, on Easter Monday will not be held to-morrow, as originally intended.

Mr. and Mrs. Ryerson, parents of the young man, his two sisters, Miss Susan and Emily Ryerson and his younger brother, John Ryerson, were passengers on the Titanic. Mrs. Ryerson and her daughters are believed to have been saved, but Mr. Ryerson and his son are among those "not heard from." They were abroad when Arthur L. Ryerson was killed, but started for home immediately on hearing of the tragedy.

The Titanic was due to reach New York by yesterday at the latest, and so the funeral was arranged for 3 o'clock to-morrow afternoon at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Locust st., above 16th.

The disaster to the Titanic caused the postponement of the funeral, and as there is uncertainty as to the fate of Mr. Ryerson and young John Ryerson, no definite date has been set for the funeral.
