A man tentatively identified as August Rauhut, 75, Spanish American War veteran of 2816 19th Avenue Oakland leaped to his death from the Golden Gate Bridge yesterday.

His body was recovered within an hour after the leap by a Coast Guard crash boat.

Neighbors said Rauhut had been under treatment at Highland Hospital in Oakland for some months for failing eyesight.

He was seen by bridge painters wondering along the walkway shortly after noon. Later they noticed his cane, overcoat and jacket piled near the north tower and notified highway patrol men.

The body was seen shortly afterwards by keepers in the Lime Point Light House and they called the coast guard. Mr. Rauhut is survived by his wife, Mrs. Margurite Rauhut, an Oakland waitress and by a daughter, Mrs. Janet Hartman of Woodbine Drive, Mill Valley. (11-29-49 San Francisco Chronicle)
