Yes, but she proved that a proper lady can rub elboivs with (lie world— occasionally tossing in :i little extra dig— and still keep her good name. First it was Vera Cruz, She had scarcely been commissioned in 19H when she was sent down for the U. S. naval landing and occupation of the city. Then it was the Barbary Coast, She was -the first Ain- cerican ih that wicked lane since the days of Dccstur, and she still had her good name when .she left. During tin.. Wcrld War, she help-ed convoy .183 ships, sailing more tlian 63,000 miles. She rescued the crews of the Sebastian when it burned at sen In 1917, and of the Swan River when it sank while the Sacramento was trying to tow It to port. In 1910 she wns frozen in at Murmansk while serving the troops guarding the Russian and Siberian " Railway..-.. Three "years later, she.iippeared ' _ , to save" foreigners caught' 'in the middle between fighting Reds and White Russians. She turned south for the Honduras disturbances in 1922. Then she was off for seven years n round the world, mostly on the China C'OilSt. , . She relieved earthquake victims In Yokohama in 1923, helped the Philippine Constabulary against rebels in Sccorro in 1924. In 1926-27 .she helped protect, the foreign colony nt Canton during an uprising. By 1D31 she was oil -Belize, Honduras, helping earthquake victims mid rescuing' n group of castawnys on Cocos Is- Iniid.' A I^ADY STANDS DP UNDER FIRE She was present at the first bombing of Shanghai by the Japanese. One bomb lauded 20 yards off her bow, broke in all her parts, smashed Ihe boats, injured several of her crew. She evacuated refugees from shanghai and Hong Kong to Mnnila. She was at the bombhig of Swntow, too. Yes, she was n- lady, ami proud, and very slow, she tossed like n chip in a typhoon.-She said farewell to Straits Settlements, Singa|x>re, Pcnnng, Aden, Suez, Port Said and Alexandria and steamed on into .-mother storm in the Mediterranean. "But- on past Naples, Marseilles. Gibraltar, the Azores and Bermuda, she came. She reached New York in lime to serve at the scene of Hie Squnlus disaster. She stood'by during the long weeks of the struggle to raise the sunken sub, acting as a "hoicl" for tlie rescue workers, and helping to tow the Squalus to Portsmouth. And now she's coming down the St. Lawrence to the Great Lakes thai will uc her prison. Frankly, it's no way to treat a lady. . '. Marie News • Mr. and Mi's. J. W.
