GIRL, 20 MISSING AS LINER QUEEN MARY REACHES NEW YORK
New York, Aug. 10---[Special]---The majority of her 1,806 passengers unaware that a girl of 20 had been lost at sea, the liner Queen Mary docked today.
An entry in the ship's log contains the name of Miss Jane Carey of Lynn, Mass., and the observation "presumed lost at sea." Miss Carey, who had been studying in Italy, boarded the Queen Mary at Southampton and shared a tourist class cabin on B deck with Miss M. R. Stewart of England.
Miss Stewart said they arose about 7:30 am yesterday. She left the room for about five minutes, and when she returned Miss Carey, who had been clad in a kimono, was missing.
Miss stewart waited for an hour, expecting her cabin mate to return, and when she did not notified the purser. An all-day search was vain, and it is officially assumed that she "jumped or fell" into the ocean, although the crew insisted it would be impossible to fall. Miss stewart said that Miss Carey had seemed depressed.
