Twenty-Four Passengers Saved By AidP
Of Ferry Boats, Police Boats I
And Harbor Craft
NEW YORK, Oct. 15.-The giant
French liner Paris, looming out of thet
shadow of the Statue of Liberty int
New York Bay rammed and sank thez
Norwegian freighter Bessengen at 1:>30
o'clock this morning. Of the 31 pas-
sengers and members of the crew of
the freighter; at least 24 were brought
to safety in spectacular rescues by
ferry boats, police boats and other
harbor craft. The survivors included I
several women and children.
The freighter went down within 15
minutes while those aboard clambered
to th ,superstructure when it was
found~ that all lifeboats had been
thrown from their davits, and time
prohibited the use of life-belts.
No warning of the crash came to
the sleeping persons aboard the 2,959-
ton freighter, 305 feet long, as the
liner, 735 feet long and of 34,569 tons,
loomed out of the night and crashed
the Bessengen, amidships. Water
quickly engulfed the entire engine
room and others in the lower sections
of the ship.
Many Jump Overboard
Within a few minutes the super-
structure of the freighter was dotted
with frantic passengers and seamen,
and the vessel listed heavily by the
stern. Many jumped into the black'
water of the harbor and called to
ranidly gathering rescue craft.
Two ferryboats running between
the Battery on Manhattan Island to
St George, Staten Island, halted in
their trips and joined a lifeboat crew
from the Paris, police boats and light-
ers in an effort to lift the struggling
survivors from the water.
On the ferry boats excited passen-
gers, seeking to respond to the cries
from those floundering in the water,
fought to reach life preservers and
lower lifeboats. One ferry landed 13
survivors at the Battery, while the
second, bound for Staten Island, res-
cued several others. Eight were picked
up by the Paris.
The hunt for survivors continued
through the night, long after the si-
lent waters of the main channel, the
busiest steamship lane in the world,
had completely submerged the freight-
Liner Is Undamaged
The Paris stood through the night
and removed the eight rescued sur-
vivors. The liner was not damaged.
Capt. Yves Thomas reported the crash
by wireless to police headquarters be-
fore the voyage was resumed.
Capt. Ludwig Hassel of the freight-
er, his wife and his 4-year-old son
were rescued by a ferryboat and taken
to the Marine hospital. Other surviv-
ors were treated at St. Vincent's Hos-
pital on Staten Island and at the Bat-
Three possible causes of the collis-
ion were advanced by witnesses. A

Wisconsin Loses Ball on Lateral Passj
Play and Michigan Recovers to
Score Second Touchdown
By Herbert E. Vedder
Sports Editor
Oct. 15--Wisconsin, after displaying.
a superior punch during the opening
periods, lost its great chance to de-
feat Michigan for the first time since
1899 by resorting to rough tactics,
here today. The Wolverines, playingI
smart football all the way, took chargeI
and of the meeting scored two touch-
(lowns to win by a 14 to 0 score, before
a crowd of 35,000 spectators.
It was Louis Gilbert who played a'
star role for coach Wieman's eleven
in its first conference game by rea-
son of his star kicking, passing and
all around defensive work. Both with
and against the wind, it was the su-
periority of the Wolverine punter
which "cast the die.".

failed to carry the ball across the
goal line and Michigan tried a lat-
eral pass. Captain Oosterbaan came
around from the end to take the ball
and tossed it 10 yards to Gilbert at
the right. Gilbert scampered over the
goal for Michigan's second touchdown.
Gilbert kicked another perfect goal
and made the score 14 to 0 with 5
minutes to play.
Bennie Oosterbaan showed his real
worth as an end in the last half both
defensively and offensively. At the
first part of the period he snared a'
pass from Gilbert for a 40 yard 'gain,
Ibeing downed on the five yard line.
The opportunity was lost when Rich
fumbled, and Wisconsin got its open-
ing. The ball was recovered by a
Wisconsin player who started toward
the Wolverine goal with an open field
but Gilbert raced after him and
brought him down on the 15 yard line.
In the third quarter a 40 yard pass
from Gilbert to Hoffman, put the ball
on Wisconsin's 1"yard line. The op-
portunity was again lost, however,

PERNAMBO, Oct. 15.-Two daring u
French aviators, Dieudonne Costes t
and Lieut. Joseph Le Brix, have con-a
quered the South Atlantic in one hop,)
a feat many times attempted but never
before accomplished. -f
Winging across the ocean from St.
Louis, Senegal, they brought their1
Brequet, military biplane "Nungesser-k
Coli" down on the, flying field near
Port Natal, on the tip of the Brazilian
penninsula, at 11:40 o'clock last night
to receive the ovations of a great
crowd and the official congratulations
of Brazilian officials. s s
The start from St. Louis was made
at 6:23 a. m. yesterday, Senegal
time. Flying over Dakar they headed
out across the Atlantic at 7:40 a. m. t
The distance from Dakar to Port Natal i
is about 2,150 miles, which, with the
three-hour time difference, gives them
an elapsed time from the African to1
the South American coasts of 19 hours1
and an average speed of about 113
miles' an hour.;
From the time of their departure
from the African coast until their
landing there was no report of their
having been sighted by any vessels,
I and their approach to the Brazilian
coast was heralded only when signals
from their wireless were picked up
by ships north of Fernando Do Nor-;
onha Island.
Costes and LeBrix now have be-
hind them the most hazardous of the
four laps in their flight from Paris to
Buenos Aires which is intended to
blaze the trail for a Franco-South
American air mail. If they follow
their original plans they will hop
next to Rio Janeiro, and thence to the
Argentine capital.
Their first hop from Paris to St.
Louis was the longest, 2 700 miles.
They made it; in 25 hours, 30 minutes.
This gave them increased confidence
in their ability to span the Atlantic, in
which several expeditions had failed,
j one with the loss of two lives.

trom Oosterbaan on his 15 yard line.
Crofoot, kicking against the wind, got
off a punt which went nearly straight
up netting only 17 yards. Miller tore
through the line for four yards and
a moment later Leo Hoffman dashed
around his own left end to the Wis-
consin one yard line where he was
forced out of bounds.
This play was a most deceptive one
and new to Michigan followers. Ooster-
baan faked the old "83" play and after
apparently pE~ssing ball around three
or four times, Hoffman took the oval
from Gilbert and broke loose like a
scared rabbit. With the ball on the
aone yard line Rich bucked across for
a touchdown on the next play. Gilbert
kicked goal.
Later in the second period, after an
exchanged of punts, Wisconsin opened
up an offensive that made the Wol-
verines look bad, carrying the ball,
from their own 36 yard line to the
Michigan 27 yard line. Rose -passed,
to Crofoot on the next play and the
Wisconsin captain carried the ball
across for a touchdown, but the ball
was brought back and Wksconsin pen-
alized 15 yards for holding.
This was the last real threat the
Badgers made as Rich intercepted a
Wisconsin pass a few moments later.

Badgers Use Rough Tactics
In the second half, the Badgers, ap-
parently angered by. the touchdown
being disallowed, resorted to the
roughest sort of playing, but for some
unaccountable reason were not pen-
alized. The Wolverines also played
hard but were not guilty of such con-
duct. They did receive one penalty
of 22 yards, half the distance to the
goal line.
With Gilbert's punting holding the
Badgers completely at bay, Michigan
had the better of the play in the
second half. One of Gilbert's long
punts went to the 10 yard line where
Crofoot caught the ball. Instead of
running the ball back he tried to take
advantage of the legalization of the
lateral pass by tossing the oval across
the field to Rose. The latter attempt-
ed to circle back but fumbled the ball
and Otto Pommerening recovered the
