Michigan Hero
Saves 37 After
U-Boat Strikes
Shipmate Credits Pal
With Righting Lifeboat
end Picking Up Victims
CARO. Mich, April 4 —Credit
for the saving of thr* lives of 37
|
men from the shark infested
waters of the Gulf Stream neah
, Cuba was given 1o Hamid Sieland
31. of Caro, by his shipmate, Lewis
Carpenter, 19. who arrived at the
home of his parents. Mr. and Mrs.
William Carpenter. Thursdav.
It was Sieland's. initiative by
which an overturned lifeboat was
righted, and the boat was used in
picking up survivors of the Texan,
drifting on bits of wreckage after
the boat had been torpedoed,
shelled and sunk by a German sub
marine. The sinking occurred two t
.weeks ago.
Carpenter told the story' of the‘
sinking of the Texan in a matterj
of fact way, hut he insisted that
Sieland was the real hero. The life
boat was the only one saved when
the Texan? went down, and Sieland
and eight men clung to it for sev
eral hours during the night of the
attack.
Righted Lifeboat
I Sieland told the others that In
the morning they would attemp’!
to right the boat. Several objected,!
saying it could not be done. Sie
iland insisted, and in the morning
he dove beneath the boat to make
; sure that the oars and provisions
were secure before the attempt
was made.
The boat was righted, bailed out
and used to pick up other sur
vivors. Others of the crew elected
Sieland captain of the craft.
Carpenter was not one of the
men who spent the night on the
overturned lifeboat. The Texan was
struck by two torpedoes at about
8 o’clock in the evening.
“I was below dorks when the
rrafth fame," said Carpenter. “I
followed a mess man, a former
pugilist, to the main dork. When
he reaehed the deck he went
mad. ran to the stern and Jumped
overboard Into the propellers. He
was never seen again.
“Another man went below to
rescue a dog, and two others
went after their tools. None was
ever seen again. I ran to a life
raft, but it had been shattered
by splinters from the shells, so
I dove into the sea and swam
as rapidly as I rnuld from the
sinking ship. After 100 feet 1
turned to look for the Texan.
It was not in sight, and an in
stant later the surface of the
water was covered with oil !
released hy the explosion of the
ship’s hollers.
“Tha purser came alongsid*-
and he and I clung to the three
hoards for 14 hours until we
were rescued hy Sieland and his
crew in the lifeboat.”
Flown to Miami
The captain of the Texan In
tended to go down with his ship,l
Carpenter believes, hut he was
knocked from the deck by a splin-j
ter caused by the shelling, into the
ocean where he was kept from
drowning, although unconscious, by
the second mate.
Towards night they were picked
tip by the crew of a fishing boat
and landed at Neuvites. Cuba. The
injured were given first aid. and
all were sent to Havana, then by
plane to Miami, Fla , and then to
I New York.
I Carpenter has not decided
whether to return to another ship
or not, hut Sieland remained in
New York and expected to join
another crew as a seaman. Sieland
is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Sieland of Caro.

Carolinas
Beckon
Vacationers
The Old AAA Traveler of
Automobile Club of Michigan
today leads us into the glories
of Carolina gardens and on
along the Gulf ('oast into Lou
isiana and home via Natchez
and its Pilgrimage.
By THE OLD AAA TRAVELER
I AST year the average motor-
ist reared bark proudly and
proclaimed he had covered 7,000
miles in his two weeks of vaca
tion. This year he will be even
prouder when he tells you he
did his two weeks of vacation
with less than 1.000 miles of
driving. And there 11 be thou
sands of Americans who won't
drive the family car, but will
travel by tram or bus.
Right now the spring flowers
of the Carolinas are beckoning,
and while you can t make that
pilgrimage within 1000 miles of
driving, it is possible to see
grand old Charleston and a few
of the other highlights without
piling up the mileage necessary
to see New England or the Pa
cific Coast.
Right now Ihe Carolinas are
magnificently beautiful, for the
redhud is out . . . and the dog
wood . . . rhododendron is show
ing color . . .and blue violets as
big as half-dollars are blooming.
Back 4 Centuries
The history of North Carolina
goes back almost four centuries
to 1584. when Philip Amadas
and Arthur Barlow, commis
sioned by Sir Walter Raleigh to
explore America, landed off the
coast.
A year later a small colony
was sent to form a permament
settlement at Roanoke Island,
but a year later they were
forced to give up the attempt.
In 1857 Raleigh dispatched
another group under the leader
ship of John White. In the group
were 108 colonists, including 17
women.
John White's daughter,
Eleanor, and her husband. An
anias Dare, were members of the
party', and on Aug. 18. 1587, was
bom Virginia Dare, first child
of English parentage to be born
on American soil.
In North Carolina today
Asheville is. of course, in the
very heart of the “Land of the
Sky.” one of the most famous
society play places in America.
12,000-Acre Estate
There is the 12.000-acre Bilt
more estate, created at the end
of the last century by George
W. Vanderbilt, which, among
other things, contains a mag
nificent collection of paintings
and objects of rare interest, in
cluding the chess table Napoleon
took with him to St. Helena, and
the ceremonial robe of Cardinal
Richelieu.
If you love beauty, as most of
u* do. you'll want to see Craggy
Gardens, a 600-acre rhododen
dron garden 6.000 feet up in
the Ciaggy Mountains.
One should swing over to
Guilford County for a look-see
at Guilford Courthouse Park,
where on March 15. 1781, was
fought one of the most impor
tant battles of the Revolution
ary War when Nathaniel Greene
and Cornwallis hat tied.
Twenty-two memorials have
been erected at various points
on the battlefield.
In Dare County are the sand
dunes where Orville and Wilbur
Wright conquered the air on a
blustery Dec. 17, 1903. On that
day the Ohio brothers made
four flights in their little air
plane with a 12-horsepower
motor.
Finally Gets Wings
The longest flight was 59 sec
onds. hut It electrified the world.
tor it meant that man finally
had achieved wings. An im
mense granite pylon, a flashing
beacon at its peak, marks the
spot where the Wrights flew.
In South Carolina the first
attempt at white colonization
was made in 1652 when a group
of French Huegenots landed at
Port Royal, near present-day
Reaufort, hut the settlement
was abandoned within a year.
But by 1670 the English had
established a colony at Albe
marle Point, on the Ashley
River.
Charleston, almost as appeal
ing as Williamsburg or St. Au
gustine. was first named Charles
Towne in honor of Charles 11.
and hy 1775 it had become one
of the most important seaports
of that time.
Here the first Independent
government established in
America was set up hy the Pro
vincial Congress in 1776. At
Fort Moultrie, then called Fort
Sullivan, was won the first de
cisive victory of the revolution
when, in 1776. strong British
naval and land forces were re
pulsed.
’Finest in World'
Charleston is packed to Its
very edges with points of in
terest, from Intriguing old
Pringle House to old St.
Michael s Church, and from the
Cathedral of St. John to Cab
bage Row. the Cahhage Row
which was the inspiration for
' Catfish Row’’ in ' Porgy and
Bess.”

Pity the poor dude. He may
soon be “plowed under** as part

force many ranches In Wyoming
and Montana to cease “produc
tion” of dudes and return to such
earthly products as cattle and
sheep.
And the fly In the ointment fa
the lowly horseshoe. The steel
shortage may cut off the supply,
except when the horses are used
In vital industry.
