Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Boruch and daughter, Barbara, are at the home of Mr. Boruch's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Elias Boruch, in Coaldale, after a troublesome journey from South Africa. Boruch was employed in Johannesberg as a mining engineer. They had reservations on the Robin Moor to return to the U.S. but it encountered a submarine and was sunk. Then they got reservations on the City of New York ship and were quarantined because their daughter, Barbara, age 4, didn't have smallpox vaccine and there had been a case of it on the ship. She tested negative.
