No Pleasure Cruise

Excerpted from the Spokane Daily Chronicle on this day in 1954:

"The liner Queen Mary pulled into Cherbourg, France, from New York with portholes shattered and her first class dining room flooded after battling Atlantic gales.

"Karl Gartner, a 5-year-old stateless boy, was injured during the voyage and taken to a Cherbourg clinic. Several other passengers had slight injuries."
