HOW SUBMARINES NOW
TRY TO DECEIVE CHASERS
BY "OIL CAMOUFLAGE"
London, July 20 (Correspondence
of the Associated Press) Tricky
German U-boat commanders have con
ceived new plan designed to deceive
crews of the allied submarine desroy-
ers in the game of hide and seek in
European waters. When a depth
bomb is discharged and does not crip
ple or destroy the German under-sea
boat, as some times happens, a quant
ity ot oil is released by some device
of the submersible and quickly rises
to the water's surface.
The hope of the German U-boat
captain is that the commander of the
destroyer will see the oil, believe that
the submarine has been wrecked and
drop no more depth charges. Mean
time, the German is endeavoring to
American and British commanders
of destroyers and submarine charsers
discovered the scheme of the Germans
some time ago and since then have
been dropping depth bombs in great
er numbers than previously, using
the oil as a guide to the general loca
tion of their target.
"Oil camouflage" the American and
British navy men call this latest Ger
man submarine trick.
