Capt. Lyons Tells
Of Sinking Of Ship
(Continued from Page One.)
to coming back to Hawaii and haviDg
some more pleasant visits of my
friends on board but that Is a thing
of the past.
"I expect to get another ship when
1 return and carry more supplies to
the Allies and I hope to see that race
of vipers wiped off the face of the
earth or placed In a position so they
will not disturb the peace of the world
again. It seems Incredible that they
could fall from the position they oc
cupied to far below the lowest savages
on the face of the earth and now our
country Is In it how many of our men
will be killed before it Is over! I
suppose this state of affairs had to be
and therefore we must make the best
of it. I am ready to take a ship Into
the war zone and take another chance
with the dirty snakes.
"After our ship sank I started for
Genova. I had a motor life boat and
took the other two boats In tow.
About two hours later two patrol
boats picked us up and towed us to
Porto Maurizlo, about sixty miles from
Genoa in Italy. From there I took
the crew back to Genoa and after be
ing there nineteen days I found a ship
was due to sail from Bordeaux on the
twenty eighth. I took forty-five of the
crew and went to Bordeaux. I sent
them home on the Chicago and I wait
ed over for this boat which is a better
one, and I will probably be only two
days behind my crew. I hope some
day In the near future we will meet
again after this cruel war is over.
"Best wishes to you all from your
