Bad Advices


From the New York Times on March 2, 1930:

"According to advices received yesterday from London, there is no likelihood of the White Star or the Cunard steamship company contracting to build a liner of 50,000 tons or over to beat the North German Lloyd record held by the Bremen since last Summer."
