HUH k WILL BE LAID TODAY Apparently I nhered hy Warship of Hl EaeauVa, Captain Koenlg Steers Boat lute Ocean Left by American Tog at Paiat Where he now Sub merge Safely. Norfolk, Va., August 2 -The Ger man submarine merchantman Deut schland passed quietly out of the Vir ginia Cape at 8:30 o'clock tonight on her homeward voyage apparently un observed by the allied warships pa trol watting outside the three-mile limit. She was accompanied to the capes only by the tug Thomas F. Tlm mlns, which had convoyed her down the bay from Baltimore, and by a newspaper dispatch boat. Her departure to sea followed an elghteen-mlle dash through the lower Chesapeake Bay. After proceeding slowly most of the way down she In creased her power at 6:30 and reached the capes just after dark. None of the alHed cruisers was visible as she passed through. Whether she submerged before reaching the three-mils limit Is no' known. The two accompanying boats only know that she disappeared tin "harmed, and that to all appearances she had a clear field ahead to a point where she could completely submerge 1n safety. Half an hour after the last night of the Deutschland had disappeared the Timmlns, seemingly satisfied with her work, turned hack and headed up Chesapeake Bay In the direction of Baltimore. Durlngf part of the day the Deutsch land had remained hidden at a cove up Chesapeake Bay. For several hours before the beginning of final dash she lay in a secluded retreat near Tangier Island, about fifty miles above Cape Henry. The Htenmer Somerset and the gov ernment buoy tender Ivy reported dur ing the early afternoon that they had pussed her at that point. The press boat took a position near the dividing point of Old Point and Cape Henry channel and awaited the coming of the under-eea vessel. Shortly before 6 o'clock the first sight of the craft was obtained. Ap parently Bhe was about five miles away and was low In the water, only her coming tower showing. The Tumulus was a short distance behind and they were traveling about seven miles an hour.
