CUP)—At least four unidentified submarines -have ibeen sighted off Canada's east . coast in less than a month. The Canadian Navy is. not overlooking fehe possibility that the mysterious undersea craft might -be Rus- isian. ' • ' ! Ti;e latest report, came Monday from the Placentia' .Bay . area where Mr. and Mrs. • John Slade • of Spencer's Cove reported seeing !a submarine near their. home early Monday morning. They said the sub lay in the mouth of the harbor. 250 yards from -shore,'for •half an hour before submerging. 1 Saturday, the St John's (NTid.) Telegram quoted two of five men i who reported seeing a mysterious 'submarine last Thursday. Gerald | McCarthy and Russell Sheppard, jbotli of Harbor Grace, said they ! watched the craft as it surfaced, 1 maneuvered about the tricky har- • bor entrance on the west side of I Conception Bay and then submerged. Two fisherman saw a surfaced sub near New Harbor Island in mid-April and their report was investigated by U.S. planes. Another report came" 1 May 2 from Fairhaven, 18 miles northeast of Placentia.
