Motion Picture Girls' Plans Go
Awry on Liner.
Captain Hogemann of the Kronprln
repsln Cecllle is a proper man. He is
oimnrnl'ir? of the North Herman Lloyd
fleet and is conscious "t" the dignity that
goes with the joh. Therefore it was not
strange chat he was argered at the mov
Uig picture folk yesterday when they
laid the tail end "f a dramatic story on
the deck ??.' th? Kronprinzessin as he
i was taking h.r out to sea.
Fifteen i layers assembled on the pier
In Hohnken. There were kissing and
hugging and tears and laughter Just be?
fore the gangplank was hauled ashore
and four young women without ticket?
deliberately remained on b??ar?.
?Down the ?Bay on the tug Dalselline
was another machine, the tug having
orders to take the four women off. It
was planned to have a rope ladder
thrown nvr the liner's side where the
wind could catch skirts and display
Captain Hogemann, when h? learned
of the trick, was annoyed. He ordered
the accommodation gangway lowered.
By this means th.- women had t?> hoard
the tug in a decorous fashion, an?! the
skipper laughed In modest triumph.
