S. Naval Forces in the Far East said yesterday. Th« Russian jubs are the main potential threat to the forces of Vice Adm. Robert. P. Briscoe. He Is openly optimistic about handling them, or anything else that 'might oppose his fleet. ig He said It Is quite likely the Reds are utilizing the Chinese Coast to build submarine pens but he point-1 ed out that wafers along the coast generally are shallow and favor the hunter rather than the hunted in submarine warfare.
