London, Feb. 7.~Tho Tuacanla remained afloat tor two hours after being torpedoed. The condition of some of tho survivors of the Tuscania was pitiable. Many had cast aside all thett-clothes and had been swimming about for two hours before being rescued. Order Prevailed Proof of tho order wnlch prevailed on the Tuscania la given by the landing of two typhoid and two pneumonia caaes without bad effect. Forty of the survivors were taken to hospitals. In tho majority of cases they are Buffering from jnjurlea as a result of accidents In the lowering of life boats or In consenuence of sliding down ropes. The survivors are proud of the behavior of tho only two women on the Tuacanla. Thoy went down a rope In fine style, laughing. An American officer said: "Everything went well with us during the voyage. Many of our men had never been to sea before and 1 must say they stood It like soldiers. "We wore one 6� a powerful convoy. "We wero Instantly disabled. All theUghta went out. An order rang out aending the troops to stations and to get the lifeboats out. The shock was not severe. U was more of a crunching in feeling that went through the ship than of a direct blow. There naturally was a good deal of contusion. You c^iunot lower a score of lifeboats from the hojght ' of an upper deck in the darkness without some _confusion, but at no time was there 'a panic. "Even before some of us had grasped the situation British destroyers were dashing along side. Such soldiers as had been lov/ered In lifeboats were put on board destroyers. A few men who had juniped overboard In tho first excitement were picked up. I bo lievo one or two lifeboats were smash' ed in launching, "The destroyers took off our inen In splendid stylo, with perfect order ."The soldiers immediately lined up and vliile standing at attentlov as one man began to sing "My' Country 'Tis 3f Theo" and the "Star Spangled Banner."
