Dlvlng In Strong Currents, Then tbore ls the trouble cauaed' by Btrong tides and undercurrents. Tho dver when ln the water ls the play thlng of tho currents. Robert Louia Stovenson, who once ventured on a dlvlng expedltlon, descrlbes hlmself as belng "blown Bldewaya llko a leaf" when ln the water. Even large, heavy bodles llke shlps of lron are solne tlmea carrlcd to long dlstances by the currents. It Is sald that the naval nuthorltlea have tbua lost entlrely an old submarlno whlch they sank for the purpose of trylng salvage experl-. ments. They knew tho apot where lt went down, but when they tried to aalvn it u waa not tnere. xno under current' had carrled lt away. It la obvlous, therefore, that dlvlng ln placcs whero tide or current runs atron'gly la very dlfllcult And inoat salvage oporatlbns Uopend entlrely upon the dlver.
