The whereabouts and occupation of the favorite Island steamer Naushon, long queen of the Island line, has been officially revealed in a story in the Stars and Stripes, newspaper of the American forces overseas. A clipping of the story, with a picture of the Naushon in her new role, has come to Mrs. Joseph De Witt of Edgartown from her brother, Pvt. Morris Shapiro, who is serving somewhere in England.
The Naushon is a hospital ship for the British Navy, and the caption under the picture in the Stars and Stripes places her at London.
A removal for the first time of the restrictions which have prevented publication of any material regarding the types of planes at the Martha's Vineyard Naval Auxiliary Air Facility, the activities at thee field, or the purposes for which it is designated, is marked by publication of an article, illustrated by drawings, in a recent issue of the Providence Journal. Some of the material in the article has been common knowledge on the Vineyard for a long time, but strict orders have prevented its publication.
