New York, April 19.- G.E.H.Stengel of Newark escaped in the only life boat which carried lights. He believes that a number of persons owe their lives to the forethought of a member of the crew who was quickwitted enough to snatch up three green glass lanterns. "These green lights," explained Mr. Stengel, "shining through the drakness enabled all the boats to keep together in the ice-filled waters."

Describing his escape, Mr. Stengel said "I put my wife in a boat, and, as there was plenty of room, I followed."
