any one was lying in ambush the hood
would protect me until t cquld get to

owner of the ship';"
"No. 1 called him then But I could
not rouse him."

There followed a furious wrangle
over this point, but the prosecuting

" 'Mr. Singleton said that he hoped

and Karen thought it was Mr. Turner
failing over something and said that
