Coming on tho heels of Vlco Ad
miral Sims' report of tho torpedoing of
an American destroyer, the sinking of
thu Antilles caused n distinct shork
to the military and naval establish
ments. Tho Sims dispatch reached tho
bureau of communications ut tho de

afternoon, at a tlmo when tho presi

mid discussing, it Is stated, the report
of Admiral Mayo as to tho real situa
In war department circles It was
stated unolTlclnlly that Important
American officials wero on board tho
lll-futed Antilles, returning from mis
sions ot observation nbrond. This may
account for tho fact thnt sho was
"picked out" by tlio submnrlne, but
general opinion Is thnt tho U-boat took
u shot in tho dark, trusting to luck to
bag ono American ship nnd not dur
ing to show herself becnuso of the
Convoys Rush to Rescue.
That tho loss of llfo was not henv
lor, considering the nlmost linmcdinto
sinking of tho Antilles, Is declared by
experts to bo duo solely to tho fact
that sho wob In n licet of ships nnd
thnt tho fast convoying destroyers
could immediately rush to the, rescue
nnd pick up many of tho men from
In enso of such nttack it Is the
navy policy for tho other ships under
convoy to scatter ns widely ns possl
hie, steering r.lgzng in order to buvc
themselves. Tho policy lins been es
tablished us tho only sufo ono to pur
sue, despite tho uppnrent brutality of
leaving men to drown.
Thero nro many angles vlslblo to
glvo bnsls to this belief, and officials
of standing point them out. They say
that Germans, by sinking n few trans
ports, expect to "sicken" America and
glvo strength to paclllsts and propa
gandists In this country that sho can
crlpplo America's war preparations in
this way, euuso opposition to furthe
drafts and crento generally an anti
war spirit in America.
