they will last for many years. [

A daring rescue of the fishing

of seven was effected Sunday
night off Wrightsville
Beach by Captain William
Wells and his brother, Charles
of Southport.
About 5 o'clock in the afternoon
the pleasure craft lost
her anchor while out at the
fishing grounds. Returning to
shore, the boat lost her rudder
as she reached the bar.
Captain Frank Brown attempted
to steer with an oar, only
to have his craft climax her
misfortune by losing her propellor.
Distress signals attracted
the attention of people on the
beach and the Southport men
set out after dark in their
boat, the Summer Girl, and
succeeded in towing the helpless
boat into dock. The rescue,
completed at ,8:80 o'clock,
drew warm praise from residents
of the beach.

Annual 1
The beautiful blue-hulled
schooner, The Indra, a veritable
prep school afloat,
made her annual visit to
Southport Friday on her way
North. Last year the boat
remained over here for about
10 days.
Aboard her were the skipper
and his wife, Mr. and
Mrs. William McD. Pond, and
ten students, who are learning
the art and thrill of sailing
while the rudiments of
elementary education are being
instilled in their minds.
Tied up at the Wells dock,
the craft, which is 72 feet
long with a beam of fifteen
feet and a draught of eleven
feet, presented a neat picture.
Her white sails furled and an
awning stretched over the
after deck, she drew the admiration
of spectators.
For three years the Indra
has been the floating home
of the skipper and his wife
and the location of the Pond
School of Cambridge.

wife conducted the exclusive
