HERO OF SKA NATIVE
OF TANGIER ISLAND
William F. Savage, Captain of a
steamship, who turned his vessel back
on her track after the nearby torpe
doing off Cape Hatteras of an 8,000-
ton tanker and rescued thirty-six of
the crew, is a native of Tangier.
It was a bold move, but Captain
Savage and his brave crew got away
with it and farther down the coast
turned the rescued men over to a
Coast Guard ship.
Captain Savage left Tangier Island
when he was about seventeen years
of age and went to Baltimore. He
shipped on a freighter as an ordinary
seaman, because of his early environ
ment, and rose rapidly. During World
War I he was torpedoed and was one
of a very few surv ivors. In 1936 he
lost his ship in a collision with a Ger
man steamship in a heavy fog, this
time he was one of six survivors, two
of whom died from exposure, after
being rescued. No doubt his own ex
periences played an important part in
his heroic act March 16, 1942.
The law of the sea during warfare
is to get out of submarine zone and
not try to aid a ship in distress, but
the code of seaman is the code of
the heart, so he turned his ship back.
The rescue of the tankers’ crew was
completed at 3.45 p. m. Four of them
were killed instantly, hut the 36 were
saved practically uninjured. Captain
Savage and his crew received a warm
greeting when their ship put into port
at Houston, Texas.
Many Eastern Shoremen will re-!
member his father, Captain Buck Sav
age of the old “Eastern Shore.” .

MOTORISTS ADVISED TO
Anti-freeze solutions for automo
biles, tractors, and trucks may not be
available next year because of war
needs for chemicals used in their
manufacture, so Marylanders are ad
vised to drain radiators and save anti,
freeze for use next winter.
It is pointed out that anti-freeze
will keep well if it is stored in a cool
place in air-tight glass containers or
stone jugs. It is further suggested
that the cooling system be flushed
with clean water after draining be
Farmers whose tractors are filled
with water and anti-freeze should
drain this out, flush well, and refill

An Open Letter To Our Mayor
Our Dear Mayor:
Supplementing the open letter of M. William Miller, Esq., addressed
to you and which appeared in the April 10th issue of the Worcester Demo
crat. this is to advise that we are in complete accord with Mr. Miller s views
on Sunday movies and would like at this time, to advance additional rea
sons for the representation of same.
In view of the gasless Sundays which apparently are here together
with the rubber situation of which we are all familiar, it is becoming neces
sary to leave our automobiles in our garages.
Our National Defense schedule is now on a 24 hour a day, seven
days a week basis.
Inasmuch as the above is the program of our Administration, it is
safe to assume, in view of the Administration’s views on recreation for the
American people, that Sunday movies is in line wth their policy.
Mr. Miller also pointed out that we now have within the confines
of our City, several members of the armed forces and needless to say, it
is our duty to see that they are entertained, particularly on Sunday.
It is our suggestion that there be one show on Sunday starting at
3 P. M. which would not in any way conflict with our local church services.
When Pocomoke was in the Eastern Shore League, Sunday baseball
was conducted around this hour to the complete satisfaction of practically
the whole community.
We can think of no cleaner nor more educational recreation than
