LEAVENWORTH TIMES, THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 21.1952. Thirteen 37 Crewmen Rescued From Sinking Ship DOVER, Eng. (B — Two British lifeboats hauled the 37 crewmen of the American Liberty ship Western Farmer from the " gale-swept English channel early Thursday after their freighter, rammed by a Norwegian tanker, split in two and sank. The lifeboats landed Capt Gunnar Utvik of Galveston, Tex., and the rest of his crew—some bruised and battered but all safe—at this famous old port of Southeast England and at nearby Ramsgate. The 11,732-ton tanker Bjorgholm. out of Oslo, came through without serious damage. She stood by until the rescue boats picked up the crew of the ill-fated 7,239-ton Western Farmer, a nine-year-old veteran of World War n. The collision occurred shortly before 10 p. m. Wednesday night, in a wind-driven rain near the Goodwin Sands — the "channel graveyard" eight miles off the Southeast coast of England. The tanker's bow, one survivor related, smashed into the freighter amidships—"right into the radio room." The crash put the American ship's engines and radio out of action, but emergency signals from a Liberian ship nearby brought rescue craft rushing to the stormy scene. As searchlights from the rescue "Junior has a problem what to do with the money he earned this summer—whether to buy a motorcycle or set married!"
