By Associated Press. LONDON, AprU 9.--Crews o? the German submarines are downhearted and often extremely nervoiis. British seamen whose vessels have been torpedoed and who have thus had an opportunity to observe the Germans bear testimony to this fact. In the official records of'the submarine war, says the Manchester Guardian, again 'and again the submarine cre'vs are described as "very demised" or "very 'nervous." Here is one description: "Master and crew all agree and were very much struct by the pallid appearance of tb^e officers and crew of the submarine, and by their nervous and excited manner. The captain oC the submarine was continually urging haste and the officer who was placing tbe bombs could hardly hold thm from the condition of nervous tension in which he appeared to be." One o£ the crew who had lived long in England, speaking to the boat's crew, cursed the war and wished it ivas over. In many cases the Germans tried to justify themselves or excuse themselves to their fellow-seamen. Some of these reports show the bideousness of the German fighting system, but they are all mild compared with the classic story of German bestiality, as In the case of tie Belgian Prince, where 'the men ·ff-ere taken on the submarine deck, their lifebelts removed, and then it was 1 submerged.
