Boswell, of the Passenger Dept. C. P. R., Charing Cross, London, England, and when he joined up he decided to follow the-footsteps of his Viking ancestors. He followed a period of training at one of Britain's great naval bases and then he was was posted to a patrol boat and found his sea legs. That patrol boat has proved a friend in need for many of the passengers and crews sent adrift on the ocean's wide expanse by the hor rible Hun, and when the "Cal/Belgium, in the North Sea "on de if 4f garian" was sunk she picked up one of her boats with survivors. One of the first to come aboard was Commander Kendall, the navigating officer, and a hearty greeting took place between the gallant C. P. O. S. captain and,the erstwhile C. P. R, "Round the world rate expert" which resulted in the latter loaning the former a clean collar, on the understanding that it would be returned to him., so that when in the days to come his children ask, "Father, what did you do in the great war," he will point with pride to the glass encased collar and say, '' Son, that was my collar, worn by Capt. Kendall, of Dr. Crippen and 'Empress of Ireland' fame, whom I helped to save from a watery grave when the 'Calgarian' went down in March, 1918." Captain Kendall, by the way, has had many adventurous experiences since the war broke out -on the English Channel dodging submarines while he brought across refugees to England from coy ships-perhaps the most dan-ger'ous service of all-and more recently in transport work, such as that which culminated in the affair of the "Calgarian." At present he is saying nothing, remembering the warning of Job: "Oh that mine adversary had written a book," but at the end of the war any book he wrote would make Jules Verne seem tame' by comparison. �4l i \ ;
