On the Hunt

From the New York Times on this day in 1936:

Liner Queen Mary Hunts Sinking Freighter In Violent Storm 200 Miles West of England
Battling mountainous seas, rain and high winds, the liner Queen Mary wirelessed early today that she was racing to the assistance of the crew of the German motor ship Isis, which is believed to have sunk 200 miles west of Land's End, the southwestern tip of England.
