k Newport, R. I., Oct. 9.?Ti^e wholesale
riad on foreign siiippin- routh of
Nantucket lightship Sunday was the1
work of one submarine, according to
Hp reports of ''.American naval omcers.
Hear Admiral Albert Cleaves, commanding
the torpedo boat destroyer j
I flotilla which did such remarkably;
speedy rescue work yesterday, said:
K tonight the reptrts of all his officers j
agreed that to the beot of their observ- I

This boat presumably was the German
\ submarine LT-53, which called at Newpart
Admiral G1 eaves said he could easily
understand the positive statements of j
the captain of the Xantucke^ lightship j
and of sailors of the torpedoed ves- j
sels that more than one submarine i
was concerned. The U-boat, he said,}
was very fast and appeared to have
been handled cleverly. It was easy, he
pointed out, for her to disappear on
the side of- a ship and then show up
unexpectedly at another spot, uouot-j
i less, he believed, she hnd submerged >
and reappeared often enough to mis-;
lead any but a keen professional observer
and to create the impression
that more than one sea terror was;
This opinion would seem to be borne |
out by the statements of many of the
refugees that the submarine had more
business on hand than she could take
care of at once and was obliged to
j request one steamer to wait her turn
I while another was being put out of
P commission. Lieut. Commander Miller
of the destroyer Ericsson, who wit*
nessed the destruction of the Steph<ano,
said he was positive that only
one submarine was in the vicinity at
the time. Today the raiding had
ceased, at least for the moment.
Six Known Yictlms.
The known list of the victims of the
U-boat's Sunday exploits remains at
six, notwithstanding reports from the

ships, the identity of which could not I
* be learned, were sent to the bottom, j
m There was also a rumor, without veri- j
fication, that a British cruiser, one of1
the allied patrol fleet sent to the sub-1
marine zone, had been attacked.
Ten more refuges were landed here J
tonight 'by the Melville, tender of the
jaetrAver Flotilla, which picked up 10
\AV0vt v* ~ ~ ,
Chinese members of the crew of the I
^ steamer Stmthdene. They were sent
to the training station to "be held until
immigration inspectors can pass upon
their cases.
Destroyers swept the waters of a
wide area today in a vain search for
the crew of the steamer Kingstonian,
who were seen by members of the
v steamer Strathdene to take to their
boats before their vessel was sunk.
Rear Admiral Knight, commander of
varrafmriRfift. Bav naval defense
district, did not appear to be alarmed j
at the lack of success in finding the I
missing men, and saw no reason to
change the previous reports that the
raid so destructive to property was
, laccomplished without loss of life. It
was the commander's opinion that the
Kingstonian's crew had been picked
up by an eastbound steamer wmcn aia
jnot care to divulge her position to
lurking submarines by reporting the
fact by wireless.
Fear for Fnttrne
Notwithstanding the lull in suomar-:
* ine activities today shipping men
were by no means reassured. If only
one raider were concerned she might j
ife be waiting only to replenish her sup-,
plies, they believed. This gave rise j
to renewal of reports that elaborate j

Carolina Surprised and Stunned by
the Play of Jimmy Driver's
Columbia Record.
The old phrases about having the
dope upset and not running true to
form leave a good deal to be said in
describing yesterday afternoon's game
between Newberry and Carolina. That
Carolina would win was generally conceded,
though it was thougftt that I
Jimmy Driver's team would put up ^!
game fight. But that .Newberry would
win by the score of 10 to 0 and keep
.lie Gamecocks on the defensive!
throughout most of the game was not
even thought of as a possibility. Yet
precisely those things happened. Newberry
won and the victory went af?er |
a fight to the team that showed the |
best brand of football.
Neither eleven exhibited much dash
or form, but this may De accounted
for by the fact tint the weather had
been turned on for the world's series
and was too warm for the wlntei
sport. Fumbles were frequent and
speed came only in flashes. The game
was marred somewhat by a numbtr
of penalties, chiefly on the offside
Newberry was supported from the
sidelines by several hundred loyal
students and 'alumni, who came over
for the game. The Ci olina boys filled
the stands on the south side of
the field. Spirit and colors and yelling
were there in their proper proportions.
The lid of the season was
pried off under the most favorable
auspices, with the exemption or tne
The Game Starts.
The two teams came on the field j
about 3:30. Capt. McMillan of Carolina
and Capt. Gotschdl of Xewberry |
agreed to play four lz-minuie quai-,
ters. The Newberry pilot won the,
toss to decide whether his team would
kick off or reccive the kick and elected
to defend the western go.il, where
the Siin fell on the backs of his eleven \
At 3:40 Referee Van Meter blew the

whistle that set trie iwo itjetms m.
others' throats. Dick Kerr, fllback
for Carolina, kicked off to Taylor, who
returned the ball five yards, Gotschal
hit the line for two yards, Taylor's attempt
to skirt right end netted no
gain and 011 the next play Kennedy
punted out on bounds. ,
On Carolina's first offensive plavl
Seaborn raced around right end for |
35 yards. Xewberry recovered Simirl's j
fumble. Taylor ripped off a brilliant j
run through a broken field for 501
yards. Gotschal took a try at Caro-i
lina's line and was turned back with- J
out a gain. Kennedy took two tries !
and on the second dropped the ball, j
which was recovered by Carolina, for j
the rest of the quarter the ball changed
hands without either go:il being
in danger. ,

around right end for 20 yards on a
very pretty run. The ends of both
teams played much better ball offensively
than defensively, being frequentl
turned in by the interference
of the other team and allowing the
opposition to skirt around. Renkin,
mt left end fcr Newberry, put up the j
best exhibition of work on the wings
that was seen during the game.
Seaborn for Carolina showed speed
in end runs. This long, rangy young- '
ster went around either end whenever j
the interference stuck with him. Sim-j
ril t the other half back position did I
-cine fancy running through broken i
:elds. His side stepping was especial- j
*y fine.
i Newberry worked a deadlv forward i
' I
;.ass that netted many long gains.!
With Kennedy passing the ball per-j
fectly to either end and sometimes the
I fcackfield men, the play worked with ;
the utmost precision. The formation
for the play was not unusual und the
passes were not complicated, but the
Carolina back field men could not
solve the play. Some of them, of
course, were broken up, but enough
[ went good to tell in the scoring and in
distance gained.
>To Trick Plays.
The game was void of trick plays1
and very few fakes were worked. An
assortment of end runs and line plays
constituted the repertoire of both
teams. The deadly forward passing
of tlie Indians served to add an occa-;
sioiii il new note. Carolina tried few :
passes and executed but few of these.!
The first quarter ended with the ball
in Newberry's possession on Carolina's
! 33 yard line. Newberry tried two fake;
plays without success and was penal-!
ezcd 15 yards for holding. Kennedy J
dropped-behind the line and shot a I
j perfect pass to Taylor, who went down |
i the field 43 yards before being downed.
The ball was then on Carolina's five
yard line. Capt. Gotschal, fullback, on
| the nekt play took the ball and lucked
the Carolina line for a touchdown.
Kennedy kicked goil. Score: Newber-|
ry 7, Carolina 0. The Newberry sup1
porters went wild.
j For the rest of the quarter the Car!
olina defense braced up and time and
again threw the Xewberry backs for
losses. But when the hall changed
! hands and beo me Carolina's property
the old punch to put across a touchdown
was lacking. Frank Hamtpon at j
left guard smashed through the line
time and again and brought down the
runner behind the line. Kerr met sev-,
| er 1 plays before they had gotten under
way. and Crouch made others go |
to seed behind the line.
\othiner But Newberry.
j Xewberry's remaining three points
j came soon after the beginning of the '
second half. Carolina kicked off, after j
being penalized five yards for being1
offside. Xewberry executed a forward j
p-'ss that netted ten yards, and another
