Many times Miss Hurley has had to repeat her christening words. "Go,( good ship. I christen thee Tucka hoe." Makes Derided Hit. She made a perfect hit on the big steel prow as the vessel glided into the water to the accompaniment of cheers of thousands, and she con fesses, girl like, to tears on the huge bunch of American Beauty roses she carried as a gift from the ship workers. "It was wonderful," she told her schoolmates. "Everything was Just fine. And I think Mr. S'hwab is Just about the nicest mini in the world. He took me all around the shipyards, and I just adore him. "Of course, I was a wee bit fright ened before such a large crowd. It was splendid of the men in the ship yards to give me three dozen roses I love them all for It. There were other gifts, too, but 1 liked the roses beat. -When I christened the ship It started down the ways into the water without a sound. The bands played 'The Star-Spangled Banner.' and everybody cheered and waved their hats. The weather was Just right. Built In 7 Days. "Oh. I was so happy that I cried when the Tuckahoe went Into the water. I turned to mother and Just cried for a few minutes, and then the ship was afloat for the first time. Papa says that the ship was built In twenty-seven days. He told the ship builders of his Joy when he spoke. Mr. Schwab, Senator Fletcher and Senator Baird and many others were there."
