VOL. CLXIV. No. 54 THE GAZETTE. MONTREAL; MONDAY. MARCH 1935. 21 FLEET OF FREIGHT LJUERS PURCHASED Eleven Italian Vessels Well Known Here Change Hands in Deal LONG IN ATLANTIC TRADE Increased Travel to Scandi-pavia Results in Extra Summer Vacation Cruises Being Planned Announcement of the sale of the fleet of the Societa Italiana dl Navigazione Lloyd Mediterraneo of Rome and Genoa, to another Ital ian firm of Giovanni Gavarone, has more than passing interest to the port of Montreal, owing to the close connection which the vessels Involved have had for a number of years with trade to and from Montreal. There are 11 vessles in the fleet of freight liners, and they have been engaged mainly in the Atlan tic trade, plying between eastern Canadian ports and Italy. During the past few years these ships have felt the pressure of tariff and quota barriers, but tprior to the development of the self-sufficiency principle in matters relative to the growing of wheat by France and Italy, the ships carried substantial cargoes of grain from Montreal throughout the open season at the local port. The ships are well-known to men along the waterfront. Agents at the local port and in Saint John, N.B., are the Montreal Ship ping Company, and the names of the Italian freighters have always been connected with that of the Montreal firm. The Giorgio Ohlsen, one of the ships forming the fleet and a fami liar freighter in St. Lawrence waters, is due to sail from Saint John, N.B., this month, and is ex pected to arrive at the eastern, port some time next week. The vessels included in the deal are the Val eavoia, Vallarsa, Valdirosa, Val fiorita, Vallescura. Valrossa, Val verde, Valcerusa, Valleluce, Val- prato and Giorgio Ohlsen. Viking Cruises Planned The increased travel trend "to peaceful Scandinavia; Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, has resulted in the Swedish American Line having scheduled four summer vacation cruises to these Viking lands. The first to leave will be the motorliner Gripsholm from New York May 15, calling at Halifax May 27, on a 35-day cruise to Baltic ports, visiting Gothen burg and Nynashamn, Sweden Klaipeda, Lithuania; Zoppot, Dan zig and Helsingfors, Finland. This will also be the only direct sailing from Canada to Lithuania and Finland, whence the Gripsholm proceeds after calling at Gothenburg, Sweden. S.S. Drottningholm sails from New York June 12 on a 33-day cruise to the North Cape, Norwegian fjords and Sweden, calling at Gothenburg, Sweden; Trondhjem, Svaritsen, Hammer-fest, North Cape, Lyngseidet, Aan-dalsnaes, Merok, Olden and Bergen, Norway. This will be a popular priced cruise at cabin and tourist class rates. Motorliner Kungs-holm will make a 42-day cruise leaving New York June 29. Her itinerary includes calls at Reykjavik, Iceland; North Cape, Ham-merfest, Lyngensfjord, Svartisen, Trondhjem, Aandalsnaes, Merok, Oye, Bergen and Olso, Norway; Gothenburg, Stockholm and Visby, Sweden; Helsingfors, Finland; Leningrad, Russia, and Copenhagen, Denmark. The Gripsholm sails again July 26 on a 33-day cruise calling at Gothenburg. Stockholm and Visby. Sweden; Eidfjord, Norway; Copenhagen, Denmark; Helsingsfors, Finland and Leningrad. Russia. Shore excursions will be arranged at the principal ports of call. Normandie's Metal Cabins When the new super-liner Nor-mandie clears from Havre on her maiden voyage to the United States next May, she will be equipped with 12 completely metallic zabins which will enter at once upon a protracted but entirely friendly competition with the great number of other cabins whose interiors and fittings are largely built of rare and beautiful woods, to find out which in the course of time best endures the wear and tear of travel and gives the best satisfaction to passengers and ship owners alike. The question has never been settled and there are strong arguments on both sides. Some expert contend that flreproofed woods of finest texture and most beautiful natural design, serve best in constructing and furnishing demi-luxe cabins because they are more pleasing to the eye, stand surface wear the longest, while showing fewest abrasions, and are by all means the most economical for the steamship company which must keep them in repair. Other experts have pointed out that metal is stronger, permitting of lighter construction, can be beautified even as wood .and will last the longest. The metallic cabins now receiving their final touches from the decorators working on the Nor-mandle, belong to a deml-luxe group- built under the direction of A. C. A. M. Noreal. Not only are the walls, floors, ceilings and doors completely metal in this instance, but the furnishings which have been specially built to match each lovely stateroom, are metal as well. Floor coverings may not be metal In the case of these 12 cabins, but beds, chairs, wardrobes, mirror frames and tables are of the finest metals obtainable. Coward Off to China Noel . Coward, famous young f lobe-trotting dramatist, will board the Canadian Faclflo liner Km prom of Canada, when she stops at Honolulu on March 28, en rout to the Far East.

Rippey's hearing of claims resulting from the collision of the gfreighters E. E. Loomls and W. C. Franz will be resumed Monday after a week-end recess. The Algoma Steamship Company seeks $250,000 for loss of the Franz. Relatives of four sailors drowned when the ship sank In Lake Huron last November 21 are asking $25,- 000 from the Iranz owners and the Great Lakes Transit Company, owner of the Loomls. The action before Judge RIppey, brought by the Great Lakes con cern, is to secure limitation of liability. Bernard J. Stevenson, wheels man of the Loomls, testified yesterday the Franz failed to answer danger signals of his ship just before they crashed. He said he first glimpsed the Franz when he saw her range lights on the starboard of the Loomls. He received an order "hard to starboard," he raid, and the Loomls blew both danger and alarm signals. No answer came, Stevenson testified. Joseph Lamontague, witness be fore Stevenson and first mate of the Loomls, said he believed the crash could have been avoided If the Franz had continued on her course. He related the Canadian. freighter swung from her course and crossed directly in front of the Loomls. Capt. Charles J. Autterson. mas ter of the Merton L. Farr. and Capt. William F.

Another of the scientific world's "problems" dis solved today with the announcement by a pair of Chicago scientists that they had perfected a method of pro ducing liquid copper after eight years of private research.
