theme about the ship, entitled, "Our
Lady", which his father Raymond
Sheets of Rockford, Ill., forwarded
to Tapping.
Describing the christening cere-

mind of each mother and father,
and every member of the crew,
must have flashed the thought,

war take her?"
He prophesied the future of the
ship, which, fire-swept and bomb-!
shattered, docked in Seattle May 25,
after limping from Okinawa under
her own power.
"She would save lives, both friend
and foe, and she would take lives.
The blood of wounded, the corpsesE
of those who become victims of
war's grim reaper would meet this
lady. She would feel the pain of
being hit but she would dodge andj
wiggle and fight back at suicide!
The ship replaced the first "Laf-
