Two Alaska Waters Claim Another In 'Graveyard' JUNEAU, Alaska Iff)—The relent less waters of a Southeastern Alas ka "ships graveyard" claimed an other Canadian Pacific Lines ves sel Sunday—its flagship, the Prin cess Kathleen—but not a person of 425 aboard was lost. A mile and a half off course the 5,908-ton Kathleen crunched aground with her bow almost un derneath a cliff. Within four hours, with coasi guard-aided rescue efforts, the 307 passengers aboard were gotten ashore, many of the younger ones climbing down ladders to the beach. Near mid-day, when the rising tide began to fill the hull Capt. Graham 0. Hughes ordered ''abandon ship" and the 118 officers and crew were also pui ashore. The ship slipped from its rocky berth and sank, with its bow going high into the air, in 90 feet oi water. First Officer Charles W. Savage was on the bridge when the ship hit. Captain Hughes reported. The lookout sighted the reef and cliff looming up in the darkness and light rain but there was no time to change course. The first officer was unable to explain the ship's position, Captain Hughes said. He was near collapse after the ship was abandoned. The ship's plight was not believed serious at first and the passengers were served coffee. Winds kicked up six-foot waves and a drenching rain fell. About 160 of the younger passengers, many of them on a tour sponsored by the Catholic Young Men's Institute of San Francisco, climbed down ladders to the shore and hiked to the road. Three other Canadian Pacific Lines ships have been lost in the THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Monday Evening, September 8,1952, Episcopalians Hold Convention BOSTON ffl — Business sessions of the 57th triennial general convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States gotj MISS BARBARA TCRLEY, 205 Maple Ave., is the new instructor in physical education at Junior High School.
