An Atlantic Port, June 7.-The
crw of the British steamer Harpathi
an, sunk off ?the Virginia cape;
Wednesday, picked up by the steame
Potomac and bi-ought into this por
late last night, is now at a local hos.
pital here, where they are recovering
frem exposure after being adrift fo
twenty-six hours. Twenty-six of the
lTarpathian's crew are C hinese. All 0:
the men are being cared for in th<
officers' quarters at the hospital. Tw(
members of the crew were injured, oni
se-erely. It is expected that the ma.
jority of the men will be able to leav<
th:' hospital early this afternoon.
Attracted by Shirt
According to Yip Chow, a China.
nwin who had charge of the twenty
ninre Chinese on the Harpathian, which
was sunk by a submarine 100 miles
fr~'m the Virginia capes Wednesday
morning, the ship was sailing from
Lsondon with- ballast; she was of 2,869
tons capacity; was owned by the Har
rison Line, of Liverpool; and was sunk
absolutely without warning by the
huge U-boat. After having been on
the sea in open boats for twenty-six
hours, the steamship Potomac was
sighted, and attracted toward the sur
vivors by a white shirt waved in the
air by members of the crew.
'hung-a-chung, the only member of
.he crew injured, was an oiler in the
engine room. lie was struck between
the eyes by a piece of the torpedo,
which struck the ship at No. 4 hatch.
He was out of bed shaving himself
Yip Chow's Story
Chinese members of the crew were
interviewed this morning at the local
base hospital, where the American
army officers had supplied them with
every convenience. Yrp Chow was the
only one who was able to speak Eng
lish. He stated that about 9 o'clock
Wednesday morning the lIarpathian,
sa:ling from London to Newport
ws, with ballast, was alive with
activity. Every member of the crew
was doing his utmost to get the ship
to this city in record time. Suddenly
\ p Chow sighted a ripple on the calm
'vater several yards away. He called
r. to the watch. It was then real
imevd that a torpedo was swishing to
ward the doomed crew.
In the wink of an eye the ship was
in convulsions. The torpedo had struck
on the stern hatch and tore a hole in
the ship. The water swirled down into
the ship. Chung-a-chung stuck,
called out for help. The lifeboats were
filled and lowered and all hands pit
o:f in five lifeboits.
Wter and Tobacco
In a very few miutes the ship set
tked down to the water's edge and then
.erked out of sight. fmmediately the
Smp was gone, the submarine can.e
awash. The submarine captain ap
peared on the deck and after him
about thirty officers and members of
the crew. _In strikingly good English
the captain called the lifeboats to the
submarmew. Tfhe Englishmen asked
him for water, provisions andl tobacco.
lHe replied that he wa~s almost out of
provisions, and that lie was willing to
t-:ve thw survivors water andl smokes.
Ge-rman; tobaceo was offered and a
si tit f~ fresh water.

MU'ST BUY WAR STAMPS
The President of the United States
has called upon the loyal men and
wvomen of America to pled ge them
selves to save for victory. He has is
sued an earnest appeal to all Ameri
cans to buy war savings stamps as
regularly as possible, investing in this
form of security the money saved
through avoiding needless expendi
"The 28th of June ends this special
period of enlistment in the greatest

What loyal American will refuse to

executive head of this nation, ansi the
commander in chief of our artaed
We have the opportunity to enlist
in this "volunteer army of production
and saving." In Germany, it is a mat.
ter of compulsion. The iron hand of
the German autocracy forces it harsh
ly upon the German people, depriving
them not merely of luxuries, but of
the barest necessities of life. We are
asked in America to voluntarily post
pone our needless luxuries so that our
soldiers and sailors may not lack their
necessary equipment. What the Ger
man nation does under rigid compul
sion, certainly Americans will do in a
mild way voluntarily. It is unthink
able that there is a man, woman or
child in America who will refuse to
sign the pledge to save and to invest
a portion of the savings in war sav
We must respon.l to the President's
solmen appeal-we must sign the
pledges, nt t because we feel forced to,
but because it is an opportunity for
us to help win the war. The nledges
should be signed cheerfully, willingly.
Of all the states in thi cou.ntry,
South Carolina stands lowest in the
list in the purchases of war' savings
stamps. In June the balvnee of the
states will conduct an intensive can.
p.gn just as this state will do. The
other states are already far ahead of
us, and South Carolina must exert
greater efforts than other states if
we are to remove the ugly stign'a of
"slacker!'from our name. Buv all
