Michigan City Woman Brings Word of Drowning of South Bend Men

Michigan City, Ind., May 8 -- Mohammed Mustafa Ajamy and Miss Fatima Muselmanie, the latter a Titanic survivor and the woman who brought word of the drowning of four young Syrians bound for South Bend, were married here yesterday by Justice Schwein.  Mrs. Ajamy is a native of Syria as is also Mr. Ajamy, and although she survived the terrible disaster at sea and is today a bride, she is not as happy as one might suppose.  When the great ship went down her two older brothers gave up their lives that she and others of the women passengers might safely escape in the lifeboats.  The young woman was prostrated for several days aftrer the disaster and when she was able to travel came here from New York.  She relates in her native tongue a thrilling account of the great disaster and her personal experiences.
