T his is similar to two other burglaries that happened over the weekend in the south end of town, where a glass door was broken out and lap tops computers comput-ers were stolen. THEFT Two reports were made the night of May 77 of thefts of purses from restaurants, restau-rants, very likely by the same suspect because of the close proximity of the two businesses, said l.t. Doug Edwards. The first report was made by a woman eating dinner at P.F. Changs at 7 p.m at the University Mall. She hung her purse on the back of her chair and an unknown thief stole the wallet from her purse and immediately went to Best Buy and used the victim's Discover Dis-cover card to purchase two lap top computers. Officers followed up at Best Buy and the employee who rung up the purchases thought they had been made by an Hispanic woman in company with an Hispanic man. The suspects then purchased a cell phone and multiple prepaid calling cards, totaling over $2,000. The second theft report came in at about 9 p.m. Wednesday night. A woman reported that she and a group of friends had been eating dinner at Carrabas at the University Mall. She hung her purse on a hook behind her seat and when she went to retrieve it before leaving, it was gone. No one in her party saw anyone take the purse. f Christ www.chrtstev.org (801) 225-3038 Worship Service at 11:00 Now meeting at UVSC Sorensen Student Center Grand Ballroom.

There were all along the eastern seaboard of (ireenland what was called "sled patrols" one Kskimo, one Dane, and two dog teams. They would patrol all along the coast, and whenever they sK)tted (ierman activity, they'd radio that out. (ierman trawlers would also come up the fjords and dump off Tid-gallon drums of diesel fuel, which they'd anchor in buoys. The submarines would come in and pick up the fuel. As quick as the submarines got the fuel, they would punch holes in the drums and sink them to the bottom of the sea.

One day, the pilot spotted the (ierman trawler F.xternsleine, about two hundred frxit long, painted paint-ed white, trapped in the ice 10 miles east of ( ape Borgen, (ireenland. Our ship picked it up on radar, and our captain called general quarters. The crew of the Externsle-ine Externsle-ine had left the ship, but the pilot spotted the (iermans and the supplies. They had tried to camouflage their supplies with white sheets, but we were still able to distinguish them. That's when we planned a strategy lo go in and capture the ship. The Fast wind plowed through five miles of ice and at 4,000 yards the captain began to issue his orders. He instructed his gunnery officers of-ficers first to fire an illumination illumina-tion shell over the target, and then one live salvo short of the ship, one over, and a final one near, but not hit the Extern-steine.

The Externsleine sent a series of quick flashes toward us, saying, say-ing, in plain English, "We give up." Captain Thomas sent a message back, "Do not scuttle ship." (We were correct in assuming as-suming that scuttling charges had been placed in the hull of the German ship.) Our sister ship, the Southwind, and our ship closed in. Two platoons went in. The one I was in came up the beach and turned toward the Externsteine. The other platoon pla-toon went up above and came over the top. They snuck up on the lookout and got him quiet before he knew what was going on. The (ierman crew couldn't believe that a ship was coming after them. They thought that tanks were coming across the ice after them. All they could say was, "Wunderbar! Wun-derbar!" Wun-derbar!"

The executive officer was wearing an Iron Cross, and he was arrogant I've never seen anybody so arrogant in my whole life. He had a superior su-perior air about him, and he couldn't understand how some dumb sailors had captured him. A cold snap had come in, and even though we got them when we did, some of them suffered some frostbite. I think they were glad to get out of their ship and get it over with all except that arrogant officer. We put the prisoners in the third deck down below the fantail.
