NEW YORK, April 19 – Charles Dahl, an Australian, who took the Titanic from Southampton en route to his mother’s home in North Dakota, lost in the sinking ship a wallet which contained all the money he had in the world.

“I was in my bed when the crash came,” he said today. “Without stopping to dress, I rushed up on deck and in some way, I don’t know how, found myself in the water. I must have jumped.

“The sight was terrible. Men were fighting with women to get in the boats. I heard several shots fired around me. I was picked up by one of the boats.”
