2 Men Bribe Titanic Sailors; Save Lives

Chicago American

Vienna, April 25.—The story of how two men passengers were saved from the sinking Titanic by bribing a sailor to disguise them as sailors and get them places in a lifeboat was told in a letter received here to-day by Mme. Cardeza from her husband. M. Cardeza said that through bribery of a sailor he obtained two uniforms, one of which he donned, while he gave the other to his secretary. Posing as members of the crew, the men got into a lifeboat and were later picked up by the Carpathia. M. Cardeza’s mother and woman companion also were saved.
