" QUEEN MARY'S " FIRST PASSENGERS

Clyde Workmen to Sail to Southampton Several hundred workers who have been employed on the construction of the Queen Mary will be the liner's passengers on the first voyage from the Clyde to Southampton, where they will make final adjustments.

They will also be on board when the vessel returns for trials on the Firth of Clyde, and, possibly, an extended trial round Ireland.

These workmen, with a skeleton crew and a few selected guests, will be the only people allowed on board when the liner is towed down the river on March 24.

Mr. David Kirkwood, M.P., who enlisted the aid of the King. when he was Prince of Wales, to secure the resumption of work on the Queen Mary, was one of the dozen guests who met King Edward at lunch during his visit to John Brown's shipyard last Thursday week.
