IRISH FISHERMEN WORK VALIANTLY TO SAVE CREW OF FRENCH VESSEL WRECKED BY GALE
London, October 3rd
Throughout yesterday and today the fishermen on the coast of County Clare, Ireland, aided by coast guards and volunteer helpers, worked with the greatest courage and devotion to rescue the crew of the French ship Leon XIII, which went ashore in a gale on Spanish Point.
By nightfall they succeeded in saving thirteen, but nine men are still clinging to the rigging. There is hope, however, that they will be rescued at low tide tonightl
