HOME THE LAST WEEK OF Our sailing date of May l4 is a- little earlier than w© had planned but if we wait we can not be sure of arriving home until ihemiddle of July and that is too late to make oun^) appointments. The reason for this uncertain sailing schedule Is because of dockworkers strikes that have beengoim. on for some tire The freighter ships never know when they can got loaded because ofthese strikes Some ships by-paas ports because :hey do not want to be involved where they know workers are striking and this reaultsin some ships sailing earlier than their designated date and others are delayed because of the strike The May l4 ship starts its voyagefrom Yokohama so wo g-in feel a bit more .sure of  t and expect to arrive on the west coast .ioraotlmv> the last week of May.
