Coast Guard Ordered To "Shoot to Kill" As Whale Hunt Opens Continued fiom Page One. of the speediest/cutlers Their or- t'ers were "shoot to kill." The men who sit and watch the ships go out were of n mind that the onc-poundcr would do the job, though some of them sniffed at the sight ot the rifle: and sidcnrms. i "We used to call them devil flih," said Captain Louis Lane, who Jhas done a bit of whaling off AlnskA m his time. "They're man killers all right. This one's Rallied (mad) and is something to slay away from. They're bad enough any time, but when they get trapped, watch outl Why, she's likely to swamp a ferry n a rush. They'll ram a ship sometimes, and a hundred tons of fish rushing through the walcr can utavc n a mighty bad hole." Captain Lane look a particular Interest in the whale because he was first to sight It. He Is pilot aboard a Norwegian vessel now, and hasn't felt harpoon In his hnnds In many years, but if ,ic had, there wasn't a whaling coat in the harbor and no market for a whale. The marine department of the Chamber of Commerce declared the whole » serious menace and the Coast Guard went to work. Lookouts on all cutters kept watch with binoculars during regulnr patrols, and the one cutter was assigned to the battle. Lookouts also were stationed on ferry boats, and men on tugs and fishing boats kept a whaler's eye to the sea closa by. The whnlo came in pint tho Golden Gate last week, probably while chasing herring, and wa unable to find its way bnck to the gale, which is the bay's only outlet to the sea. Captain Lane said the whale was "very old and covered with barnacles." He said that history of Alaskan whaling was full o,' accounts of gray-backs attacking ships, that they had wrecked any number of ships and killed scores of men. Eight years ago another whole got itself li.ippcd In the buy and died on the ihoals when It ventured too near the shore and wns left there by the outgoing tide. The present whalo h-«; been »e«n perilously nenr the shore and "lOmc of the harbor men thought t might deitroy Itself before Coast Guardsmen found it. Sons of Legion to Meet.
