Berengaria Answers Signal and Goes
to Assistance of Distressed
New York, Nov. 28. (By A. P.)-The
East Hampton station of the Inde-
pendent Wireless company picked upI
S. . S. signals frtm the Italian
steamer Castel Porziano snortly after
8 o'clock tonight. The signals were
answered by the liner Martha Wash-
ington which offered assistance in
case no other vessel was closer to
the crippled ship.
The S. 0. S. call was picked up
shortly before 8 o'clock and all local
broadcasting stations were ordered to
'stand by for 40 minutes. Dispatches
intercepted here a few minutes later
indicated that the liner Berengaria
was proceeding to her assistance.
The position of the Castel Prrizano
was estimated at 1,500 miles off the
American Atlantic coast almost due
east from Norfolk, Virginia. The Cas-
' tel Porziano gave her position as
latitude 34.4, longitude 55.8, which is
directly on the northern New York-
Liverpool steamer route about 1,500,
miles out of New York.
The crippled steamer is of 5,302
gross tonnage, is 394 feet long, and
was built in 1920. It is not known
whether she was carrying passengers
as well as freight.
