The tanker had loaded a 1,000,' COO cargo, owned by the Gulf Oil Corporation, fit Port Arthur, Tex., for delivery to Hamburg, Germany. Stories circillnted here thnt the tanker's. captain, Ernst Rudolph Heltzmarih, was a former U-boat cdnuhtmder brought scores of curious to see the vessel nnd Die cnp- taln. On Raider Wolf Newspaper interviews soon revealed Ihht H'ellzmanh was not a former U-boat commander bul. that he had been warrant ofllcur aboard the famous German raider, Wolf. The Wolf, ghost ship of the Wo.rld War, captured 14 AHcd vessels and sunk or damaged Ii more in R 25-monlh period of liicle-micl- scek with the British navy. "Battleships, cruisers — yu, Ihcy may get through Hie bicckade, Uut net Slow ships like the Wolf any more," Heitzmann said. "In those days of 1917 and 1918 we did not. have to worry about airplanes. Today, how could a vessel like the Wolf,.which made, only li knots, get away!"

The ship was attached before n settlement was reached. Barren said he wanted to be an American citizen. Esriy In April, the tnnker transferred her cargo to the Gtilfcoast, Gulf Oil vessel.
