along at a 35 miles an hour rate." The
trio were tumbled about on the soft
earth, but escaped serious injury.
To save themselves from a ducking
in the bay, the aeronauts were com
peled to throw everything overboard,
the basket at one time being within
55 feet of the water.
, The highest point reached in the
flight was 5,220 feet by the aeronoid
At one point the drop was from 4,900
feet to 55 feet above water.
Farmers came to the rescue of the
balloonists, and planks were laid from
firm ground out to the party. The bal
loon was not damaged. The property
returned to Oakland tonight.
Before 1,200 spectators the big bal

Six Fellow Students of Harold
Fitch Weep While Acting
as Pallbearers ./
Manly Grief Adds Pitiful Feature
to Sorrow of Family Over
His Untimely Death
It is not often that sturdy college
fellows armed with the unconscious
defiance of life shed tears unashamed
and do not strive to smother sobs
which tell of the very depths of sor
row. But there was just such an ex
perience of grief yesterday morning
when Harold Fitch, only son of George
Hamlin Fitch, the distinguished news
paperman, was laid to rest-
Six of his fellow students during four
years at Leland Stanford Jr. university.
who acted as pall bearers, could scarce
ly see their way for tear dimmed eyes
as they bore their comrade from the
softly lighted chapel to the bright sun
shine of the October day. But in this
loyal and unstinted sorrowing the?«
young men expressed what the large
company of friends attending the serv
ice knew; that Harold Fitch had been
loved for his merry, sunny selfhood:
that he had been appreciated for the
many and the good things he had done;
that he had been honored for the forth
right, fearless stand he had taken at
college when a principle had to be
maintained and a truth to be spoken.
Their manly grief was deeply affect
ing and added a really pitiful feature
to the gTeat measure of sorrow which
the untimely death of Harold Fitcrf
has brought to his family and friends.
As a son Harold Fitch was much
nearer to his father than most boys.
They were constant companions. As v
friend he will always, be remembered
as a manly, smiling, sturdy fellow, one
whom it was always a pleaseue tv
The funeral service, held in Gray &
Co.'s chapel, was conducted by Rev. F-
W. Clampett. D. D.. of Trinity Episco
pal church and Rev. C. L. Meil of Sac
ramento, formerly a newspaperman
of this city, who came to pay hlastrlb
i ute to the boy he had known and to
'• add his word of comfort to the family.
The service was largely attended by
newspapermen and women, for Harold
Fitch had grown from a lad to a man
in their midst and was well beloved.
Their tribute in flowers embowered tha
chapel and formed a pall for the newly
made grave in Cypress Lawn cemetery,
where interment was private.
The pall bearers were Joseph R.
Hickey. George Presley, Harry McKen
zie. Clarence Laurneister and Lana
