Proposes 400-Foot, 7,500- Ton Ships Able to Dive 500 Feet SAFE FROM BOMBS Depth Charges Not Effective at Extreme Depth of 500 Feet By CHAKLKSCARSON NKA Service Staff Correspondent MILFORD, Conn.—While cash-carry neutrality gives the eastern maritime industry its biggest headache in many moons and knocks thousands of able seamen off decks and into the ranks of unemployed, the venerable inventor of the submarine sits wrapped in an overcoat in his imheatcd office here, stubbornly insisting that cargoes be curried under the seas. It's an old story to Simon Lake, who tried without success to give away his plans and services to the U. S. government 22 years ago for the construction if freighter submarines to carry supplies under water through the German blockade to the Allies. Just move normal commerce lanes sorts of .submcrsiblcs for Germany, to the safety of the ocean depths and (he submarine threat to sea-going trade virtually is eliminated, contends Lake. As a matter of fact, inventor Lake, who in the past 40 years has built all .sorts of submarsibles for Germany, Austria and Russia, as well as the United Slates, was just about to contract with Germany in 1917 for the building of 5000-ton cargo-carrying subs lo run the Allied blockade when the United States got into the war. Freight Subs Would Dive Deep Lake's current plans for submarine freighters, which have been submitted in some detail to President Roosevelt, call for huge 7500-ton, 400-foot submer- siblcs to dive 500 feet—well out of effective depth bomb range, says Lake. These cargo subs, it is proposed, would carry a crew of about 30 and I heir speed would be around 10 or 15 knots average, similar to that of a surface freighter. Lake's plans call for an observation tower capable of being raised 20 to 25 feet above surface, thus enabling the submarine to remain well below water while navigators had a full view of the ocean. If enemy craft appeared, the vessel could quickly dive to the safety of 500 feet. Cargo would bo placed inside the hull and a narrow deck housing would give the crow walking surface when not submerged. These factors, and others not revealed, combining the most effective features of the merchant ship and the submarine would allow cargo subs to pierce the naval blockades, argues Lake. In support of his arguments for freighter submersibles, Simmon Lake •ecalls Iho German cargo-bearing U- boat "Dcutschland," built along the lines of his own designs, which made four trips to American during the last war, successfully running British and French blockades. And so the man whose invention «avc the world the menace of the military submarine, believes that in the .submarine lies Uio o/ijy effective answer lo that menace. Lake's Career a Romance Simon Lake's career as an inventor has been a romance of science. The U. S. Navy department rebuffed him just after the Spanish- American war when he took his first model of a submarine to them. Off to Russia went Lake with models, plans and plenty of conviction. There, at Kronstadt, during the Russo- Japanese War, he built the first modern naval .sub. U was (hat vessel along with Iiiler improvements by Lake that was copied by (he Germans. Lake spenl many years in Europe as a consultant^ to the governments of Russia and Cenlral Europe in submarine construction before returning to his Connecticut laboratory. There he still works with his son Thomas A. Edison Lake, who, oddly enough, is an airplane inventor who believes that bombing planes caji blow subs out of and off the seas. (CuiUuiucd ou Page Four.)

Germany Is Put on TradeJBlacklist No Tariff "Reduction for Reich and Conquered Territories WASHINGTON —(S>)— Germany and all the territories Hitler has acquired in the last few years were placed Friday on the United States economic blacklist. In proclaiming the trade agreement with Venezula, President Roosevelt excepted Germany and her territories from tariff concessions granted the South American country. 'Because I find as a fact," Mr. Roosevelt said, "that the treatment of American commerce by German is discriminatory, I direct that such proclaimed duties (in the Venezulan agree ment) shall not be applied to products of Germany. Products of territories now under the de facto administrative control oC-Germany.shall bo regarded as products of Germany, for the purposes of this paragraph." Goods coming from the Germany of the Versailles treaty, plus the Saar, plus Austria, plus most of former Czecho-Slovakia, plus most of Poland, must pay the tariffs of the 1930 tariff act, and may not receive the benefits of Deductions in duties made under the trade agreements that the United States lias concluded with 20 nations. Under most-favored nation policy, the rdeuctions apply to all the world aside from Germany. German products must pay the 25 per cent countervailing duties imposed this year on the ground German and her recently acquired areas to the United States have dropped to practically nothing. The latest estimate, for September, showed such goods were valued at a little more than ?2,00,000. This compared with ?10,000,000 for September, 1938. An official pointed out that the president's lumping together of Germany and the territories she has absorbed does not in any sense imply a recognition by this government-of the conquest of those lands. He called attention to the phrase used by Mr. „, . Roosevelt—"de factor administrative £,! nei control"—as mr»Hninw cr»l«i*r iv, *»,...:_ China Execute 9 Friday and 3 Saturday in Student Uprising 2 Czech Policemen Among .Victims in Prague on Saturday "PEACE" RES T O R E D Drastic German Action Taken in Capital of Conquered Area PRAGUE, Czechoslovakia — HP)— Three more Czechs, including two policemen, were shot Saturday for "acts of violence against Germans," it was announced officially.
