FJCUDAY, MARCH 4, 1938. CODKlTiR, UUWWJJLiljSVliiJL.J!i. PAGE FIFTBKN. City's 95-Year-Old * x Gldbe Trotter" Is En joying World Tour John Porkhill Writes o f ! Pleasure in Realizing Ambition. "XPERIENGES NO SEA SICKNESS John Parkhill ot 832 Morrell avc- ' nuc, Conncllsvillc's 95 - year - old "globe trotter," is getting "quite a kick" out of watching the ocean and spends hours at a time gazing out ot a window of the Saturnia 'upon the. Atlantic Ocean ns he continues his 16,000-worId tour that will take him to 22 countries and Islands in 54 days. i The active but nged West Sidcr, who spent nearly 70 years of his life on a farm in North Union, township, near West Lcisenring, boarded the Saturnia in New York City on the night of February 11, his 05th birthday anniversary, and the ship sailed the next morning. It has always been his dream to sail the ocean. He related some of his experiences aboard the ship in a letter mailed to his Bon-in-lnw, Andrew Lcrch, from Madeira, where the first stop was made, on February 18 by the party making the Christian Herald's llth winter cruise under the direction of Dr. Frank S. Mead, editor ot the Christian Herald. Exerpts .from Mr. Parkhill's letter to his son-in-law follow: "We are having fine bright days... Have just come from dinner. Four cat at one table. Three women happened to be my fortune to fall with. One has a saucer in between her places with a cigaret in it. She smokes between servings and I'm not accustomed to tills. "We're sailing on smooth scai, have had all the while. It will be several days'before we sec land again. (The second scheduled stop on the cruise was Casablanca, French Morocco, Africa, Sunday, February 20). . . . "I've just learned that passengers on the Saturnia get no side trips without real cost. I don't know how much. If I am able to see the Holy Land or Jerusalem, I fear it will be under heavy cost (The folder advertising the tour said all expenses for all .side tours were covered in the original cost). ... "I seldom get to see my roommate. He's up long before daylight. He doesn't wash in our room and I'm not aware when he comes in lor bed or when he goes out . . . "There's some hero that think they're better than I am but they ;yc not I bike no part in their games or gambling. I go Io the upper lounge with n very large room in it and large w.indows and sit there for hours enjoying myself looking out on the ocean. "I don't know whether others on board get seasick or not because this ship sails very smoothly. If there ara any sick I believe it is because California Flood Toll Mounts Hourly; 169 Dead or Missing Continued from Page Eleven, town of 39,000. A cloudburst in the mile-high mountains back of town sent a 40-foot wave of water raging down Lytle creek, through the residential outskirts. Every bridge and road In San Bernardino county, largest in area in the United States, was washed out or blocked by slides. Stores were rationing individual sales to prevent hoarding, but chain stores had a large supply of food left In warehouses. Madeline Carrol], the English actress, was rescued from her palatial home after being marooned there 24 hours. Leo Carrillo stood In the doorway ot his Santa Monica canyon homo watching the flood waters roll past. He saw n man struggling in the water, grabbed a lariat and lassoed him. The man he saved was Ralph Duffln who had been swept into the stream from n crumbling hillside. Citizens formed a vigilante force to guard against looting in the San Fernando valley north of Hollywood. Some residents fired on prowlers but none was wounded. In seaside Venice, where 2,000 persons were routed from their homes by the water, looters used boats, rowing down the flooded streets and ticing up at likely looking homes that were deserted. Police went out boats to capture them, but the "flood pirates" escaped. Police had ordors to shoot looters on sight. The American Red Cross announced today that no help was needed from outside the state to care for the refugees. ot eating too much because they surely feed you. I try to guard against tin's but they shove it on to me whether I want it or not, saying 'don't you want this?' 'don't you want that?" find 'don't you want some ice cream?' and it is all very tempting to me. "Hope everything and oil friends at home arc well and in hopes you'll get some word when we reach land. "The two young ministers you saw me with (at the pier in New York) are glued together." Mr. Parkhill referred to Rev. Fred Grimm, pastor of the Perryopolis Methodist Episcopal Church, and a Baptist minister from Raleigh, N. C., who have become very friendly on their trip. Mr. Lcrch and his daughter saw them in New York when he took his father-in-law there to board his ship. Evidently Mr. Parkhill spends much of his time in writing ns auile a number of friends and relatives in Fayctte county received letters from him. Open EVERY day till 5:30 Saturdays 9 A. M. to 9 P.
