PARIS. Oct. 12. (AP) The
submarine Ondine, ' which was to
have been the newest unit of the
strongest arm of the French navy,
is' at the bottom of the ocean and
all her crew of three officers and
40 men are dead.
The ministry of marine learn
ed tonight that the tragedy oc
curred about midnight October
third when the submarine was
rammed off Oporto by the Greek
cargo carrier Aikaterini M. Goul
andrla. The advices came in brief
dispatches from the French con
sul at Rotterdam.
The ministry was totally at a
loss to explain why the captain of
the Greek steamer waited until
today to reoort the accident. They
were dumfounded too by the fact
that he abandoned a- search for
survivore or wreckage within two
htfurs after his steamer hit the

was Bizerta, the seaport of Tunis
on the north coast of Africa. She
was heading there on na trial trip
which started at Cherbourg on
October 1. . ..
Official communiques of tne
past three days had expressed op
timism because of the Known & un

wa naanmed however ' that a

dzed him for abandoning searcn

This, together with the euose-
onent silence of the Greek com
mander, appeared so extraordin
ary to ministry officials that none
tonlcht would venture an opin

express astonishment, They were
willing for further Information,
having asked' especially that a
fun statement be obtained from
the Greek captain.
