November 2, 1939: Front page of the Dunkirk Evening Observer, Dunkirk, New York.

Note the headline: "No Report Comes From The Coulmore"
(The way this headline is written is very misleading. It indicates that there has been no contact with the Coulmore, which is true, but if you read the story it says that the authorities believe Coulmore is safe. Other ships have signaled that Coulmore is safe, but Coulmore herself has not sent a signal. More about the Coulmore can be read in the papers yesterday Nov. 1, 1939.)

November 2, 1939: Front page of the Biddeford Journal, Biddeford, Maine.

The headline in this paper is more in line with what the story actually says.
