"Shortly after the crippled Nazi float- r * Ing .fortress had surrendered 62 Bris tish seamen taken from nine raided 1 merchantmen, British diplomatic au- -jlhorities indicated that the 10,000-ton •f British cruiser Cumberland had join, «d 'the 'death watch" flotilla outside 1 tfie " harbor. , ^ The same sources also said that it was likely the great battle cruiser Renown and the aircraft carrier Ark's Royal would rush here from South ', African waters. The Cumberland mounts eigh I eight-inch guns and has a speed o 1 3l5, knots. The light cruisers Ajax i and Achilles, which drove the Gra i Spec into this harbor after a day ; long battle, were on watch. Reports from the latter two warcraft ' said that they had no dead and only 'l a few wounded.

Under the direction L of British legation officials, a tugboat pulled along side the pocket battleship and the seamen emerged from their prison. 'Headed by five merchant captains ' the men mounted the same gangplank over which Capt. Hans Langsdorff of the Graf Spee a half-hour earlier had led half a dozen smartly ' clad Nazi officers on his way to make a formal call in port.

Most of them carried shapeless bags holding their scanty belongings. They showed the effect of a terrible day spent in close confinement in the bowels of the Graf Spec while Ihe battleship was pounded by British shells and shaken by the rcoil of its own U-inch guns. The imprisoned captains were identified as Brown of Ihe S. S. Huntsman. Pottinger of the S. S. Ashlea. Edwards of the S. S. Trevanion, Stubbs of the S. S. Doric Star and Patrick G. G. Dove of the Africa Shell. All these ships were sunk in the vicinity of the African coast. The other four vessls which fell victim of the raider were the Clement, sunk off Brazil September 30; the Newton Beach, attacked off South Africa, October 5, the Pairo .which down the same as the Doric Star, and the Streonshalh sunk off the River Platte about a week ago. Effectiveness of British A close inspection of the crippled warship revealed graphically the effectiveness of-the British guns. Three holes, apparently made by six-inch shells, gaped on the starboard waterline forward. A huge hole, a yard and a half in diameter, was blasted through the hull into (the ship's sleeping quarters on the port side forward. Plates bent outwards indicated the effect of what must have been a severe explosion within the ship. An ether gap, large enough for scvera men to enter togther, could be seen in the fighting tower. The heavy shel apparently came over the stern during the chase. The six-inch portside gun tower was overturned. The Graf Spee lay high out of the water, possibly confirming the contention of the British minister that she was forced to run for shelter because her fuel was giving out. A group of Japanese girls in California spent an afternoon recent! playing Chinese, .checkers, ..thereby giving rise to reports that the Sino- Japanese issue was to be settled soon.

There i.s one way that I think the I leader of a family can help another child. He can be a great friend and companion. He can take Ihe other along with him often enough to show he likes this slower brother and is proud of him. He should acl as a brother and son, and not keep all his charm for other's.
