Unseemly Disturbance on the SS Germanic

AN unseemly disturbance on the Germanic, White Star Line, on a recent trip, and incident to the customary entertainment for nautical charities, was due to the officiousness of some American passengers who sought to arrange an opposition festivity in aid of the Fresh Air Fund. Happily there were those on board who calmed the raging social sea.
