1 BRITTA1MIC SINKING TANGLES
Washington, Nov. 23. Destruction
of the great British hospital ship Bri
tannic seriously threatened today to
enter into the tangle of submarine
complications between the United
States and Germany.
The state department, as usual,
wants facts before making conclu
sions, for thus far it is unaware,
officially, whether the vessel was
submarined or mined.
Under additions to the Geneva con
vention, rules were made giving im
munity to hospital ships and their
complement Subseguent changes
did not affect this idea of respecting
vessels engaged on errands of mercy.
Lbndon, Nov. 23. Press and pub
lic say sinking of hospital ship Bri
tannic is part of new German cam
paign of "frightfulness." They point
to frequent reports from Germany
indicating consideration, of resump
tion o? unlimited submarine warfare
and the deportation of Belgians to
support their contention.
Pointed out that there could be no
mistaking character of Britannic. No
submarine commander could have
failed to identify ship, for it not only
carried usual hospital ship emblems,
but was biggest ship of her kind in
world. Opinion is here that she was
victim of deliberate attack.
In an additional statement the ad
miralty asserted Brittanic carried no
wounded and those aboard were only
regular crew and hospital staff.
