U-BOAT DEUTSCHLAND COMES
BACK TO AMERICA
New London, Conn., Nov. 1. Safe
from Atlantic perils after buffeting in
rough October gales, German sub
sea freighter Deutschland docked
here today on second American voy
age. Twenty-one days out from Brem
en, she hummed through Long Island
Sound outer harbor shortly after
midnight, with valued cargo of rare
medicines and dyes intact.
Cap't Paul Koenig, who brought
Deutschland into Baltimore on its
first trip, was in command.' "We had
trouble at Bremen, colliding with an
other vessel," said Koenig, "that laid
us up ten days for repairs."
Koenig's papers read: "Bound for
Baltimore or any other Atlantic sea
port," but the best available informa
tion was that he believed his chances
of running the allied coast patrol to
be better by heading into New Lon
don. No time will be lost in unloading
her precious cargo, said to include
valuable drugs and a rare medicine
shut off from America by the war.
Her whole cargo is said to be valued
at around $1,000,000 and she will
take back nickel and rubber of nearly
equal value to use in hospitals and
In addition, it is understood, she
carried a pouch of diplomatic mail for
Ambassador Van Bernstorff.
In his first talk Koenig said noth
ing of the ijl-starred Bremen, which
supposedly preceded the Deutschland
out of Bremen and was lost or cap
tured "by watchful allied patrols.
Washington, Nov. 1. This govern
ment will take little official cogni
zance of the arrival of the German
submarine freighter Deutschland, it
was indicated today. Beyond assur
ing that the vessel has not changed
her character from that revealed to
naval engineers when they examined
her in Baltimore on her first arrival,
it is believed the govenment will give
her the minimum of official attention.
