BIBEE, SON OF INSURANCE MAN, GIV- EN UP AS LOST WHEN SEARCH FAILS TO RE VEAL HIM BUILDING. LAST SEEN ENTERING BLAZING Try M. Bibee, aged 19, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Bibee, of Spray, N. C., is now believed to have perished in the fire which Saturday morning destroyed Blackstone Acamedy. The last lingering hope that he might be at the home of some distant relative living near Blackstone vanished this morning when they were reached and reported not having seen the boy. Mr. Bibee, life Insurance agent at Spray, left this morn- ing for Blackstone to meet his brother, J. W. Bibee, of Lynchbttrg, who hastened to the scene yesterday to clear up the mystery in the young man's disappearance. The father of the youth expressed the greatest concern and virtually ad- mitted that he had given up all hope of finding his boy alive. Messages received at Spray today were that the ruins of the fire swept building had not been combed for the body, but as a result of the almost immediately and exhaustive search made for the young man which proved negative the only con- clusion reached was that he had perished. The young man, a second year at the college, -was last seen jon Saturday morning by room- 'mate. The fire had been discovered 1 and the students were hastening to in view of the rapid spread of '.the blaze, fanned by a stiff wind. Bi- ,bee is reported to left the build- ing, but suddenly remembering cer- iain effects in his he was anx- ious to save, re-entered against the instructions given -to the students. His room was on the -third floor. Soon. 'after he had gone in, one of" the collapsed and it was then fear- ed that he must have gone" down wifh it. Still, in the immediate confusion after the fhe the hope prevailed that Bibee had succeeded in escaping and had made his way to the home of re- lations. Many of the boys escaped without their coats and were taken it la believed to have been of incen- diary origin. Many of the cadets were in class when the news of the Ire spread and they marched out in an orderly fash- ion, being unable to return to their rooms and forced to leave the build- ing without their coats. Citizens of the town are furnishing those without proper clothing with overcoats, shoes and other necessary wearing apparel Cadets in the upper stores had to scramble to safety and it was in making, his exit from a third story Window by means of a rope tha't j'oung Chaney fell, fracturing his arm and sustaining internal injuries feared to be of a fata Inature He was hurried to Richmond for expert medical attention Another student cut his band badly while sliding to safety down a water spout.

Loaded cartridges for rifle urac- tice, which were stored oi base- ment, exploded in the fire, sour. '.ing like a battle and causing- spectators to rur for cover as as the popping began.
