Dec. 21 ;?) -Twenty years a?o the Danish training ship Kobenhaven .sailed out of Montevedio, Uragnay. for Australia, with 50 hands aboard anil, except for one signal, was never heard from again. The date was Dec. 14. 1928. Seven days later and 40(1 miles east of the River Plate her last message w;is wirelessed, "All's well." KOT a ship with the Xoben- naven's equipment could vanish from the sea without leaving a trace or a clue has provoked speculation that Is undimlr.ished after ",vo decades and msde it or.e o f ' jthe sea's great mysteries. I She was a Jive-masted bark under '52,000 square yards of sail. She had 1 auxiliary engines and a powerful radio. She had a bis crew--55 cadets and 15 officers. She had ample beats. As sailing: ships go, she was relative:;; new. At the time of her disappearance she ?.'as the only five-masted square rigger In commission in the world. The most plausible theory Is that she struck floating ice in the South Atlantic and sank. The loss of the Kobenhaven Inspired a world-wide search that lasted for years, but nothing came of It. As late as 1335 speculation was revived briefly by discovery of seven skeletons in the ruins of a small boat on a lonely beach in southvrest Africa- But this theory collapsed when Danish officials in Johiumesbnrg said the boat was longer than any the Kobea- baven carried. The latest, explanation is that she capsized in a b'g wind ar.d never ; righted herself. ! "She was in ballast and under : heavy press oi sail," says Capt. |Char!es E. Umstead, principal of ithe merchant marine school of the (New York Seamen's Church Insti- itute. "The winds south of the River j Plate are cyclonic." Capt. Unjscaad ! believes "it happened so quickly she i never had time W send an S.O.S." : On Jan. 14, 1929--Exactly or.e month after the Kobenhaven cleared Montevideo--Philip Lindsay, a missionary living on the lone- ily island of Tristan Da. Cunha, i sighted a big sailing ship in dis- ; tress, her stem nearly awash, drift- ling helplessly toward the rocky coast. i A. J. Villicrs, a writer of the j sea who knew the missionary and [ whose earlier career had been ! spent in sailing ships of the South Atlantic, devoted njucti of his time to the mystery' and is certain that the ships was the Ko- benhaven. Villiers believes the ship began to sink and was abandoned in the night by her cadet crew, who hoped to keep near her in lifeboats. Bnt the boats and the ship became separated, he theorizes, and the Kobenhaven was blown across the sea like a ship of the dead and dashed to splinters on the cliffs of Tristan da Cnnha. "Anyone who knows those parts as I do." he said, "will readily understand that the cliffs of Tristan da Cunha might grind a hundred ships and leave nothing but a splinter uf two of matchwood." j |Yank Lothario ils Back Behind Bars in Berlin against the girl, a harboring a fugitive ** Britches Breech The Army agents had kept watch ' T-J-riH CTpd in Tnmn m various places in Berlin where Dria -9 ea m JUIIlp ATLANTA.
