POTTSTOWN, Pa., April 18---The name of Miss Annie Funk, a returned missionary from India and a daughter of James Funk, a well-to-do grist mill owner at Palm, this county, is not among the list of second-class passengers on the ill-fated Titanic who were saved by the Carpathia.

According to the parents of the well-known missionary worker, Miss Funk engaged passage on the Titanic, but her name is not on the Carpathia’s list of saved.

Miss Funk is 38 years old and was on her way home from India, where she spent five years as a m missionary at Jangir, Central Province, one of the stations of the Mennonite Church. She arrived in London two days before the sailing date of the Titanic. She intended to take the Haverford, but her parents think that she engaged quarters on the Titanic.
