Thanks to a bit of British ingenuity, the Belpit brothers, who were too ill with measles to take the train last week, will be able to join their playmates after all. General Byng's office dispatched a taxi to drive the youngsters to Bristol, where they arrived just in time to board the German ocean liner taking them to Bremerhaven. "It was certainly a challenge to find a working taxi in these times," Notes the General, "but we must all go above and beyond." The "O" Courant wishes the Belpit boys a "bon voyage" aboard the St. Louis.


  • The MS St. Louis was a real German ocean liner during the WWII which carried more than 901 Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany in 1939 intending to escape anti-Semitic persecution.
