Montreal, Que., Sept. 4 (AP)--A Montreal family was stirred today by the prospect that Lorraine Allison, long believed to have been drowned in the Titanic disaster of 1912, still is alive and residing in Berkley, Mich., as Mrs. Laurence Kramer.
The family is that of Mrs. G. B. Allison, sister-in-law of Hudson J. C. Allison, Montreal financier, who was drowned with his wife when the Titanic went down 28 years ago. Also presumed to have been lost was Lorraine, the Allisons' 3 year old daughter. After the sinking Allison's body was recovered, but those of his wife and child never were found.
Today it was learned Mrs. Kramer had written to the United States department of justice claiming to be Lorraine.
