But Traveling Guardian of Little Miss Bentham Is Missing
Special to The New York Times
ROCHESTER, April 18---Lilian Bentham of 11 Kay Terrace is saved on the Carpathia, but her mother is suffering from nervous strain in consequence of the delay in communication. Miss Bentham had been spending a year in Europe and joined a friend of her family, William J. Dunton of Holley, to return home with him on the Titanic. Miss Bentham is saved, but Mr. Dunton went down with the ill-fated vessel.

The widow is a guest of Mrs. Bentham in her Rochester home,so that Mrs. Bentham is swayed by conflicting emotions, joy at meeting with her daughter and grief for her bereaved friend.

Among others in whom Rochester is interested are Mr. and Mrs. Harrington Mann. Mr. Mann makes his home in London and is a well-known painter. Mrs. Mann is a sister of Henry Paisley of Rochester. Mrs. Mann has been saved, but the artist is among the missing. Stanley Fox, also of Rochester, was booked on the Titanic, and is supposed to have been among those who are drowned. Howard B. Case, formerly of Rochester, on the Carpathia.
