Tonawanda, July 3. -- Tonawanda attorneys yesterday entered an order directing the sale of the schooner OLGA by United States Marshal Hettig at Tonawanda on Wednesday July 4. The boat will be sold to satisfy claims aggregating nearly $3,000. The OLGA is owned by Capt. Edward Prill of Tonawanda. Diring last season she had more accidents than any other vessel on the lakes. She was in two collisions and twice the boat was driven ashore during storms. The expenses incurred have made it necessary to sell the boat to satisfy them.
