Underwater Craft Submerged
on Way Down Bay.
TEST HELD SATISFACTORY
Captain or Xeckar Says Deutsch

J 00 Vards of American De-
etrojer Mile at Sea.
" NORFOLK, Va.. Aug. S. The allied
cruisers patrolling the entrance to
Hampton Roads to prevent the depart
ure of the German submarine mer
chantman Deutschiand were still in
position -within sight of shore diving
today and there was nothing to indi
cate that they were aware of the pas
eagre of the Deutschiand out through
the capes last night. Marine men here
believed the submersible had entirely
eluded the war vessels and was safely
on her way across the Atlantic on her
return voyage to Germany.
Captain Hinsch, of the war-bound
German liner Neckar, who, on board
the tug Thomas F. Timmins, directed
the departure ot the Deutschiand. said
today that the underwater freighter
passed unobserved within 100 yards of
a United .States destroyer on neutral
ity duty about a mile off the capes.
He also disclosed that the submarine
submerged twice on her way down the
bay to test h'er engines.

In the bay which I shall not disclose,
because we shall probably have to. use
the placa'agaln," said Captain Hinsch.
"the pilot aboard the submarine was
taken off to the Timmins. It was
then about 5 o'clock in the morning.
The submarine was submerged so that
her machinery and pumps could be
tested and the cargo trimmed, should
that be necessary. She went down in
a deep hole in the bay to a depth of
135 feet, remaining there for some

Captain Koenig came up through the
conning tower and said that everything
was working perfectly. We started off
down the bay. and when no traffic was
in sight the Deutschiand took another
dive while running.

"'She went down until only four
Inches of her periscope was showing
above the water. Then I dropped be

of the Deutschiand or the foam crest
of the periscope could be seen. At 400
yards with glasses I could not see a
"The tests having proved that the
Deutschiand was in perfect condition,
we went into a place to hide for a
while. We were well hidden, too. Any
one would have had great difficulty
in finding us.
"In the afternoon we started for the
capes, and you know how the better
part of the trip was made. The de
stroyers were passed in the dark. As
coon as the men on the bridges sighted
the lights of the Timmins they watched
us closely and looked all around for
the submarine, which passed them at a
distance of only 100 yards. At the time
the submarlno was submerged until
her decks were awash.
Destroyer's Officers Surprised.
"Later when I reported to the de
troyer that the Deutschiand had
cleared the capes and was on her way
to sea. the officers aboard seemed most
surprised. They had not observed her
at all. So you see that the British and
French cruisers offshore hadn't the
slightest chance of finding the Deutsch
Captain Hinsch added that after the
officers and members of the crew had
given three cheers for America, he
heard Captain Koenig give the order
"diving stations." At that time the
vessels were about a mile off th'e
capes. The submarine increased her
speed and the men aboard the Tim
mins. which had stopped, watched her
as she sped for the open sea. A mile
away all her lights suddenly dis
appeared. Captain Hinsch said he
knew the vessel submerged at that
time, when a mile inside the three-

He added it would be unwise for him
to disclose whether the vessel wen

out to sea, or whether she steered an
easterly course straight out.
Captain Hinsch returned to Balti
more tonight, leaving the Timmins in
Norfolk with instructions to pick up
a tow for Baltimore if one could be
secured within a day or two. If no tow
Is available, the tug, he said, will go
back to Baltimore anyhow.
