WASHINGTON, March B—Why not go after the submarines at their bases? Why not raid Heligoland and Zebrugge? These are the questions thousands of people all over the world have asked. The submarine menace has not been ended. Day after day Its deadly work goes on. But raids on submarine bases are not feasible. This is the sober and final verdict in official quarters. "It must not be supposed," said a! high official, "that we have overlook- I ed that phase of the problem. Two · separate reports have been made by the best men at the disposal of the tfar and navy departments. They have made investigations on the ground, and have closely studied ev ery phase of the subject. They have held exhaustive conferences with the British and French authorities. "The conclusion reached by every body is Uiat it would be suicide, ab solutely nothing short of suicide, to attempt to raid the submarine bases. "These bases are protected, by in tricate and extensive mine fields, added to which are powerful and elaborate shore batteries. "Every navy man knows at what a disadvantage any floating craft is In an attack on a harbor where the enemy's guns are fixed on cement emplacements with every range care fully calculated beforehand and plot ted on the charts, while the attacking party must fire with a gun which rolla with the movement of the ship and necessarily cannot operate with the accuracy or over the long range which the land guns can. "Beside which It must be remem bered these land fortifications and mines are merely background for de fensive craft, destroyers, cruisers and battleships, which make these har bors bases. "We are using and shall use all means for controlling the submarine; surface destroyers, 4etectors, depth j bombs, and convoyi And we are ι still working on other weapons with which to combat the menace. "But any invading force would be merely cut to pieces and the men de stroyed before they could begin to effect a landing. This Is the verdict of all who have reported." Spirit of Suoc«M.
