            A wireless message from the Standard oil steamer Bayway when 150 miles at sea, was received here Saturday requesting that a physician be sent aboard the vessel as soon as she arrived in striking distance. In response to this call Captain John Moore carried Dr. C. L. Swindell off to the ship Sunday morning, she having arrived and anchored off the bar. The sick man was first mate C. R. Morgan. It was found that he needed an operation and so he was taken to the hospital at Morehead to get the necessary attention.
            The vessel, which was bound from Baton Rouge, Louisiana then proceeded on her way to an Italian port.
