MONTREAL, AUGUST 8, 1945 (CP). - Claude C. Bonter, passenger traffic manager of Canada Steamship Lines, said today the company was making arrangements for the construction of two $2-million luxury steamers to be built at a Great Lakes ship yard, and which will be launched in 1947. One will be named HAMONIC, to replace the vessel of the same name destroyed by fire at Sarnia, Ontario, July 17, and the other will be called the KINGSTON.

Construction of the ships, which will be part of the company's post-war reconstruction program, will be subject to priorities on materials. They will be built entirely of steel. Equipment will include a hospital, telephones in staterooms and public rooms, a library, music lounge, cocktail bar, elevators and chapel.

The ships will be constructed so that if the St. Lawrence waterways project is completed, they will be suitable for cruises between the head of the Lakes and the Atlantic Ocean.
