Caption: Rick Stiles of south St. Louis, a leader of the forlorn effort to save the Admiral with grassroots fundraising, displays the pledge cards that his group was handing out in March 1980. Stiles got busy after reading that the Streckfus Steamers Inc., which had cancelled the 1979 cruise season to make repairs to the Admiral, announced that the deterioration of the boat's hull was more serious than originally thought -- and that there would be no 1980 season either, and probably never another one, without $500,000 in repairs.
