CINCINNATI GETS MESSAGE

Steamer Reports Picking Up Call From Stricken Titanic

NEW YORK, April 17.- Capt. Schulke of the steamship Cincinnati, which reached port today from Naples and Genoa, reports that at midnight Sunday he received a wireless call for help from the stricken Titanic.

Although 550 miles away, the Cincinnati was headed for the scene of the disaster and would have continued had not another mesage from the Titanic been received half an hour later.

"Olympic coming: not needed." This was followed by silence, and the Cincinnati resumed its course.

Although he took the southerly course, Capt. Schulke says he saw no icebergs.
