Excerpt from The Tiger, Vol. 12: September, 1914

The palatial liner of the P. M. S. Company had been carefully creeping down the coast for two days. The weather had been excellent, but the careful observer would have noticed that an air of subdued excitement was present. On the bridge the captain and officers paced nervously back and forth and stop-ped every little while to scan the sky - line with their glasses. Each time the captain turned away with a sigh of relief. One more day would see his ship safely docked.

Rumor had gotten a oat among the passengers that some danger threatened, and they, too, lined the rails and gazed anxiously out to sea.

Half - way across the Pacific the news that war-had been declared was received and the captain had shifted his course to escape the cruisers that he surmised would be blockading the ports.

Nothing occurred during the morning to attract attention. About two o'clock that afternoon, however, a faint smudge of smoke appeared off to starboard. This caused considerable excitement among the passengers, but as it disappeared in a short time the incident left the minds of all except the captain. He determined to keep an extra careful watch that night.
