WRIGHT, Wilbur
ORVILLE WRIGHT OVERWHELMED WITH GRIEF -- Dayton Mourns Death of Her Most Distinguished Citizen Inventor -- Will be Laid Beside His Mother Today
Dayton, O.. "I am overwhelmed by the death of brother Wilbur," said Orville Wright in his first public statement tonight. Heretofore he has denied himself to all callers except a few friends. Orville's face bears the marks of much suffering and the co-Inventor of the aeroplane is broken in spirit at the loss sustained. Just when the brothers move at the flood tide of fortune. "Wilbur was more than most brothers," he continued. 'We have worked together and played together since I was old enough to know any thing, and his death has completely unnerved me "We were getting our factory in fine condition when this blow came and he was so proud of it. His death is a terrible blow and will have a big effect on our organization. I cannot say at this time how his place as president of our company will be filled. I have given no thought to business these last few days." Dayton is overwhelmed by the loss of her most distinguished citizen. In the modest home of his preacher father lies the body of Wilbur Wright. Hundreds of floral tributes quite fill the modest rooms and there is an air of melancholy in the neighborhood, where the two famous brothers spent so many years. The burial will be tomorrow, by the side of his mother in Woodland cemetery, unadorned except by the simplest of monuments, the remains of her gifted boy will be laid. The body will lie in state from 10 o'clock until 1. Public funeral services will be held at 3 o'clock in charge of Rev. Maurice E. Wilson. The burial in Woodland will be private. The pallbearers have not yet been selected, but arrangements may result in the selection of two representatives of the "Ten Boys Club," the only organization of which the dead man was an active member, two members of the Wright Company employes and two from the Dayton Aero club.
