CHICAGO, Nov. e. (A. P.)- If
naval terms of the treaty of Versailles
are carried out by the allies the U-K7,
a German submarine with a record of
at least seven allied ships sunk, will
Itself be sunk In 100 feet of water
about twenty miles off Chicago har
bor, this fall.
Orders for the deslructlon of the
IT-97 were issued some time ago, but
later withdrawn pending decision
Whether that part of the German peace
treaty which provides for the destruc
tion of all surrendered warcraft is to
be put Into execution. There is some
difference of opinion among the allies,
France and Italy especially being anx
ious to keep some of the late German
ships to bolster up their own" navies.
In the meantime the C-97, which
toured t.e Great Lakes In tho interest
of tho Victory Loan campaign, follow
ing the armistice. Is tied up alongside
Perry's old flagship, the Commodore,
here. Only the hulk of the old-time
trrror if the seas remains, practically
all her machinery and fittings have
teen removed, the majority to be sent
to the Annapolis naval academy. Her
five Inch deck gun rest on the wharf
teslde the rust eaten hulk.
In spite of the gutting process,
v.hich the boat has undergone the
hulk is still worth 115.000 to $20,000
as junk, according to Captain Edward
A. Avers, naval commandant In the j
Chicago district. There is a large !
amount of copper and brass abroad I
which could be recovered by break-1
lng up the boat. The powerful stor- j
ge batteries, which formerly ran the j
IJ-Boat when submerged, are still
aboard, ai.d probably will go down
with the ship if she is sunk. Although 1
the batteries are worth several thous-'
and dollars, and an offer has been
made for them by a private purchaser, i
the naval department refused to per-1
mlt the ale. !
If the orders to destroy the hull arc
revived the U-9J will be towed out
to sea by the gunboat Wllmette, for-j
merly the steamer Eastland, which i
turned over in the Chicago river in ;
