Victims Unable to Settle Nerves
LOS ANGELES, CA - Mrs. Lottie Hardy and Mrs.
Betty Laurel are finding it difficult to cope while
they wait to hear the fates of their husbands, who
are lost at sea.
Earlier Mrs. Hardy was in good spirits, after
hearing from her little brother Charlie. She was
then shattered to hear about the disaster. Now, she
fears the worst for their husbands. "I feel as if
they were hovering right over me," said Mrs. Hardy
to Mrs. Laurel. They hope a movie will take their
minds off the situation, as they wait for the
rescue ship to return to port.
