Passengers Attempt to Swim.
Half a dozen passengers jumped to

The captain ordered all ihe passen

did so and became quieter.
"Of the half dozen who jumped, all

them back to the ship when we saw
they couldn't make the boats.

Some were not picked up. One of

Grosser Kurfuerst. I told the pas

was very near and they heeded my
commands But most of them were
scared and refused to Jump.
