WASHINGTON, March 10.
The government will em
power armed American mer
chantmen to attack submarines
on sight. The state department
declared that Germany had
already announced her aban
donment of the customary visit,
and search before torpedoing,
therefore America would take
no chances. The sight of a
German submarine is sufficient
to justify American gunners
opening fire. This announce
ment has brought war extreme
ly near. Officially it is believ
ed a fight between an Ameri
can vessel and a submarine is
inevitable. The navy depart
ment has established a censor
ship. - ---.--
