The horror of the wreck of the
Roma is brought close to the people
of Florida by the death of Captain
Dale Mabry, of Tampa, second in
command of the ill-fated craft. He
belonged to a well-known and honored
Florida family. Captain Mabry was
30 years old and unmarried. He was
born at Tallahassee, the son of the
late Judge Milton H. Mabry. He was
educated in the public schools of this
state and graduated from Marion
Military School, Marion, Ala. Cap
tain Mabry left his business in Tampa
to enter the second officers' training
camp at Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., in Au
gust, 1917. Just before completing
his training there he went to Atlanta
and took the examination for the air
service and was commissioned a lieu
tenant. He was sent to France in
December, 1917, and remained there
in active service until the armistice.
He was promoted to captain, com
manding the tenth balloon company.
He made a fine record for efficiency
and after he returned to the states in
1919 he entered the regular army as
captain. Captain Mabry was sent to
Rome last summer as one of the com
pany of flyers to bring the Roma to
this country, the United States hav
ing purchased the giant dirigible from
Italy. He was on the Roma when it

there was a change of leaders if the
