I am studying at Columbia for
service on submarine chasers. It
will probably be of interest to yoii
to know just what a submarine
chaeor is. They are small boati
110 feet in length find are about
700 bori'e power. They hare a
speel of about 25 miles per hour.
There are three big gasoline motors
each driving peparaln propellers
and one Hinall auxiliary engine
wuien ruii'Miie eieeiiical appara
tus. They are equipped with
wireless, electric liehls and some
of them are electrically healed.
They curry several dtglh bombs
and a three inch gun and are nip
posed to run in fleets of about ten.
Whon a submarine is sighted we
are Aipposed to get on the spot as
soon as possible and roll a depth
bom overDnard as near as possible
to hiui. These bombs weigh about
350 oe 400 pounds each and carry
a charge of T. .N. T, bo it ia not
healthy for a .submarine if one
goes off wilriin fifty feet of him.
The people of the east certainly
treat us uue, just imrly carry us
