Diver Sighted From Florence,
Nationality Is Not Established.
Eugene, Or.. May 27. A telephone
message from Florence this afternoon
was to the effect that the lighthouse
keeper at Heceta Head light, '10 miles
up the coast from that town, and
others at the station, plainly saw a
submarine pass there during the aft
ernoon going north.
They said that the undersea vessel
first appeared upon the surface of
the ocean for 15 or 20 minutes and
then submerged, the periscope only
There were half a dosen people at
the lighthouse and In that neighbor
hood at the time, and all watched
the S-essel for half an hour or more.
Those who had field glasses watched
the periscope until the vessel reached
a point where It was impossible to
further discern it.
There was much speculation as to
the nationality of the vessel, as there
was no mark upon It to distinguish It.
In view of the fact that the British
cruisers have recently been seen in
the vicinity of San Francisco bay,
probably looking for a German sub
marine, it is believed by people at
the lighthouse, and at Florence, that
the vessel seen this afternoon may be
German, operating from a base some
where in Mexico or South Ajnerica.
