Buy A Defense Bond TODAY1 Last Remaining Packet Boat On Mississippi Is Ready For Another Season Of Activity By NED NORDNESS Associated Press Staff Writer ST. LOUIS, March 12. (.¥, — Tugging at its mooring lines the Golden Eagle, last remaining packet boat operating on the Mississippi and almost given up for lost last summer, is nearly ready for another season of activity. A coat of paint, a last thorough inspection and its famous owners, Cap'n William (Buck) Leyhe and Cap'n Henry Leyhe, will send the boat off on its first scheduled trip —St. Louis to Muscle Shoals, Ala., and return—April 25. The majestic old sternwheeler, a romantic leftover of a bygone era, sailed the Mississippi and its tributaries for years until one dark Saturday night—June 14, 1941—it .hit an underwater dyke near Chester, III., and sank. True to river tradition Cap'n Buck maneuvered the boat close to shore, put off 55 passengers and 57 crew members before the packet sank. A negro cabin boy was killed by the blacklash of a Hawser. Then began a battle with the father of waters. Divers patched the hole in the bottom but the river rose too high for salvage attempts. Then it receded so quickly the sternwheeler, stuck on a sandbar, could not be budged. Despaired Of Saving Craft The Leyhes despaired of saving the craft and were about to announce retirement after more than 50 years on the river when finally, last Sept. 11, the Missis- sissippi relented, rose and the olden Eagle was pried off the bar. "She'll be busy this season," chortled Cap'n Henry today. "There's something about the old packet that draws people. "When she sank last year we received hundreds of calls begging us to refloat her as they'wanted to make reservations. "Well, the old gal's afloat and neither the Golden Eagle no Cap'n Buck and 1 are ready ti retire yet." Snap out of Sick Headache!, so-called BUlausnesj.
