a'as torpedoed IMay 7, 1915. She got
away in the last life boat and was tossed
about hy the ocean waves for hours toe
t'tce she and the others in the frail
craft were finally picked up and. taken
to yueenstown. She aided in the rescue
of. .on'.e forty drowning men who were
niggling in the water alter the Lusi

S;-;!Kins of her experience on the ill

'l sailed from New York on the T.usi

land. We had a delightful six days on
tite ocean and everyone was looking for
ward to the sight of the English shore.

e 1 to climb the rigging but a ship officer
told us to come down and get in one of
the lifeboats. I told the little boy, whose
name was Arthur Reot, to slide down
the ladder and I wouid catch him. But
he was afraid and scared. I said, "Come
on, you will be lost." So, he picked
courage and slid down. I failed to catch
him and he landed on his back. It
knocked him out for a little and I
thought him dead, .hut he came too soon.
Then as we hurried to a lifeboat a ship
officer said. "We can get the little boy in
but we can't get you in." "All right, get
him in." I answered. He told me to go
to another lifeboat. I did but there
wasn't room in that for me so he told
m to go to the last. I stumbled and

1 Getting Into the boat I stepped on some
I one's leg, but I got in all right. I saw
the little boy's mother drown rignc in
front of me and' I couldn't help her. The
second boat that I attempted to get in
was ready to be let down when one of
the rollers wouldn't work and there were
so many on one side that it turned over
and all were lost. The little boy's moth
er was in this boat. Our boat got away
just in time, for the Lusitania was just
sinking beneath the waves when we
pushed away from it. It was a terrible
sight to see all the bodies floating by us.
There was one man who was strug
gling in the water right near our boat
and I said to the mate: "Can't we help
him?" lie said, "No." I said "Yes, we
can." So after a very hard struggle we
succeeded in getting him Into the boat.
Then we started for Queenstown. We
met a fishing boat which picked us up.
After we had been taken on board the
Ashing boat we saw a lifeboat with only
three persons in it tossing about on the
water. When we had gotten within
hailing distance of each other our officer
asked the officer in charge of the life
boat how it was the're were only three
In tha boat. 1
We learned that their boat had cap
sized in getting away from the steamer
and only three of the boatload had sur
vived. The officer in charge of the life
boat asked for help in order that his
boat might go back to pick up some of
the drowning. Our officer told him he
could not spare anyone.
I volunteered to go, and the two boats
being close together, jumped into the
lifeboat before anyone could stop me.
We rowed back and picked tip about
forty of those struggling in the water.
On our return the fishing smack picked

but they evidently knew nothing of our
predicament and passed on their way

Then a tender hove in view. We called
to them to come to our aid but it w-as
some time before we could make them

took about two hours before we had all
been transferred to the tender.

I intended to save enough money from
