ANCHOR LINE FREIGHTER READY FOR LAUNCHING.
      Manager J. C. Evans, Chief Engineer Charles J. Fox and other officials of the Anchor Line will leave for Detroit on Friday night to witness the launching of the new freighter which has been built at the Detroit yards. The company has decided to continue its policy of naming ships after streams in Pennsylvania, and the new boat will be christened the ALLEGHANY by Miss Thayer, daughter of John B. Thayer, president of the Pennsylvania Railroad. The ALLEGHANY follows the style of the MUNCY and is what is known as a 15,000 ton dead weight. The WISSAHICKON of the Anchor Line which was wrecked on Outer Duck Island last winter and has been undergoing repairs at Detroit is almost ready for sea again.
