Giant United . States Liner
Limps Into Port After
. Mishap At Sea
NEW YORK. Apr. 9. (AP)
The United States liner Leviathan
steamed into port today, bearing
scars Inflicted by a single blow
from an angry sea. Four days
out of New York, the big ship
smashed heac-ou -uto a giant
comber, which reached up 85 feet
to wreck a searchlight high on the
foremast, twisted steel stanchions
like hairpins, crumpled life boats
and then raced aft to shatter win
dows along the promenade deck.
A score of sleepers below deck
were drenched by a cataract of
salt water pouring through a
wrecked ventilator. First class
passengers watching a motion pic
ture in an after salon felt the liner
quivver as she took the blow.
Once the towering wave bad
passed there was comparative
calm. Passengers In the partly
flooded third irass compartment"
were moved to other quarters. No
one was Injured and the damage
did not extend to any vital part
of the ship.
Some of those aboard believed
the big comber was a tidal wave
but Commander Cunningham said
it was only an. unusually large
wave which had struck the ship at
an unfortunate moment when she
was at the bottom of a downward
