PAGEWO ^LYTOEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Young Amerieau Refugee-r-and Friend Appeals For Volunteers To Man Merchant Ships Answered TORONTO, Out. (UP)—Hundreds of Canadian seamen and officers from the Atlantic to the Pacific are answering the call of the British merchant marine service. Thousands of British sailors in ports over the world were recalled to man positions in the British navy following the outbreak of wax- To fill these gaps, Britain looked to her Dominions. Canada answered the call with 2,000 of its most able seamen, of whom it is estimated more than half this number are ;.from Toronto. Britain needed oil and gasoline to lubricate and operate the machinery o£ war and a fleet of tankers was brought under British charter to carry these vital cargoes. Only a few hours after the call went out for men, more than 200,Toronto sailors volunteered for the emergency and were soon on their .way to Atlantic ports to join their vessels. Many From Lake Fleets "Hie men who answered this call, in many instances, left lucrative •jobs on shore and' aboard lal:e steamers. They came from all walks of life. As nation after nation yielded tc the Germari3>rislaughtr hundreds of ocean-going" "vessels — "ranging from 1,000-ton tramp steamers to giant 20,000-ton passenger ships— escaped to the safety of British waters. ._ And as the demand increased for more men. England again turned to Canada. This time more than 500 Toronto men volunteered, lining up hi front of shipping offices minutes after the call went out. In a few hours, they were en route eastward. Many were placed on board ships of other nations, including vessels of Swedish, polish, Belgian, French and Netherlands registry. In some instances,.' many lake officers ,who never _had sailed out of the St. Lawrence river were v placed in responsible positions , aboard ocean-going vessels. A for- merlcaptaln of a C. N. K. passenger boat is now commander of a Canadian convoy ship. An engineer from % a Toronto-owned ship holds a similar post on a Belgian vessel " Some of these seamen have macte theirifinal trips; victims of enemy raiders patrolling the seas in search of cargo ships.. With --the ^close ~of -another Like season" only-a - few weeks away, many seamen in Toronto are preparing to move into the merchant, marine service for the winter. Others already have obtained berths and are awaiting orders to -sail. - A returning Toronto seaman summed it up this way: "If you want to find out who is boss of the seas, _ask the-man who sails the ships in convoy."
