Subject: happy? – Dec 10 ('Ethie' wreck / Satire)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 10 Dec 05 - 12:12 PM

Despite the skilled work of her crew, the Ethie encounters a terrible storm and runs aground around one o'clock in the morning. All manage to reach shore in a rude boatswain's chair
        On the tenth of December, as you all well may know,
        In the year nineteen nineteen, on her last trip did go;
        Where she leaved Daniel's Harbour about 4 P.M.
        With a strong breeze from the south'ard, for Cow Head did steam

                "The Wreck of the Steamship Ethie" by Maude Roberts Simmonds 1920;
                Gerald S. Doyle, Old-Time Songs of Newfoundland (1927 & 1955) & see Ballad Index

Per Tom Lehrer: "The Day Satire Died": Henry Kissinger & Le Duc Tho were awarded Nobel Peace Prize
re Vietnam peace on 12/10/1973 (Le Duc Tho refused it)
