We received a message from Irene Wittig concerning her trip on the S,S. Brazil in May of 1951.  She was not quite seven years old at the time and had many memories of her trip.  She won a costume contest and received as a prize an elephant mug.  She also remembers the crossing of the Equator party and being very nervous at having to kneel before King Neptune.  She was kind enough to provide us photos, the elephant mug and her kneeling before King Neptune, she is the second from the left.
