Uear-Admiral Moore reported from
Honolulu late today that the subma
rine evidently was waterlogged and too
heavy to be raised by the equipment
employed by the searching fleet. This
destroyed any faint hope that might
have been left of finding any of the
crew of 21 alive.
The vessel lies in 45 fathoms (270
feet of water) and her position is be
ins held while preparations for raisins
her by pontoons are made.

Admiral Moore's report follows:
"Lieutenant C. E. Smith. command

rifle torpedo flotilla, has located the
K-4 and moved her a slight distance

Secretary Daniels said tonight that
the Department would raise the F-4 at
any cost to determine the cause of her
accident, in order to guard against
similar disasters In the future. He em
phatically denied reports of dissatis
faction over the work being done by
the naval authorities at Honolulu.
Equipment May Be Sent.
"Nothing could be further from the
truth." he said. "The Department is
convinced that everything possible is
being done with the means at hand.
Honolulu being an isolated station, is
not nearly as well equipped for salvage
purposes as are some of the naval sta
tions on the mainland, but there is
every indication that the officers and
men at Honolulu are indefarlgably
working night and day with every
means in their power to raise the
sunken submarine and rescue their
"Should Admiral Moore, the com
mandant of the station, and Lieutenant
Smith, the commander of the sub
marine division, fail to raise the sub
marine through lack of necessary ap
pliances, it is the Department's inten
tion to send out the necessary salvage
equipment, including deep-sea diving
apparatus, as well as expert deep sea
divers to accomplish the purpose.
"It would, of course, be Impossible to
get such equipment to Honolulu In time
to save the lives of the crew."

Think back to the first Episode and
then answer this question: Was
there ever such imagination and won
ders exhibited in a newspaper story
or a motion picture? But first think
back. Recall the death of Mr. Dodgre.
Then came that masterly "Twilight
Sleep" with Elaine forced to do things
against her will. Then there was
the "Freezing Safe" exploded by
evaporating liquid air. Remember
the start it gave you? Then came
"The Poisoned Room" and "The
; Vampire," when Elaine's blood was
used to save her enemy. Then, the
"Double Trap," and the thrilling
fight on the steeple. And now come3
the "White Circle."
