Radio Tells Of German
Submarine's Presence
Off Puerto Rico Coast
German Freighter
Burns Near Aruba
NEW YORK, March 1. -MP)- The
British freighter Southgate, a 400-
foot vessel of 4,862 tons, wirelessed
tonight that she was attacke by a
submarine bout 130 miles northeast
of Puerto iRico.
The message, intercepted by Mac-
kay Radio at 6:09 p.m. (EST), gave
no details and there was no immedi-
ate word from the vessel or elsewhere
as to the outcome.
The position given by the ship-
latitude 19.58 north and longitude
64.00 west-would place her about
1,100 miles southeast of Miami, Fla.,
a spot in the trade lanes between Cen-
tral America and Europe and well
within the Amercan neutrality zone.
The United States Government,
which maintains the base of its Tenth
Naval District at Puerto Rico, swung
swiftly into action.
Ctter Speeds To Sene
First, the Coast Guard Cutter Un-
alga, sped to the scene of the re-
ported attack when the Southgate
.flathed its cll.,
Then, the Navy ordered all vessels
in the district to stand by and give
such assistance as their positions per-
mitted and sent three destroyers-the
Mc~eish, the Statterlee and the Ma-
sonto the sene.'
This was the first definite report of
a submarine attack in American
waters. Four months ago, a vessel
identified by its call letters as the
British Coulmore sent out a distress
call lndicatlng she had been attacked
by a U-boat about 600 miles east of
Boston but the Coulmore was report-
ed safe the next day and the attack
was un verlfied.
Attck Not Unepected
The reported submarine attack on
this side of the Atlantic was not un-
expected, ho eve, as a German U-
boat campaign against British trade
routes to the West Indies had been
predicted byinformed marine sources
more than a month ago. Since that
time, these sources said, British war-
ships have been searching for the
Nazi undersea craft in the Central and
South American area.
From San Juan, Puerto Rico, came
word that the position given by the
Southgate was but a short distance
north of the present maneuver area
of the U.S. Atlantic squadron.
Some observers suggested that the
Southgate might have sighted a U.S.
submarine in 'the act of surfacing,
and sent its message before deter-
mining the undersea boat's identity.
Nazi Freighter Scuttled
Off Dutch West Indies
ARUBA, Dutch West Indies, Mrch
1.-")-The German freighter Troja,
2,390 tons, which sailed from this
port, was interepted by a British
cruiser and was burning off Aruba
The crew of the Nazi vessel, at-
tempting to reach home through the
British blockade, apparently set fire
to their ship rather than submit to
the British waship.
The Troja sailed from Aruba at the
same time that the German freighter
Heidelberg departed. There was no
word from the Heidelberg.
Aruba, on a Netherlands-owned
island off the northern coast of Vene-
zuela, is in the Carribean Sea, well
within the American neutrality belt.
Large exports of Venezuelan oil are
handled here.

German Bombers
Raid British Ships
LONDON, March 1.-(IP)-German
bombers struck at British and neu-
tral shipping off the British Isles to-
day, in one case attacking a convoy,
while Britain was striking back with
new economic pressure and a scout-
ing flight--the most extensive of the
war-over Berlin and other German
An authoritative source said no
ships being convoyed were hit, add-
ing the action took place too far out
for British fighter planes to aid them.
(The official German news. agency'
said the convoy was dispersed and
"numerous" British warships and
armed merchantment were attacked
and several large ships sunk.)
Several unattended vessels fell prey
to the German war at sea. The 7,418-
ton British liner Pyrrhus was re-
ported sunk off the west coast "by
enemy action"-presumably by a

Michigan Favored
For Eighth Victory
Northwestern and Michigan stage
their annual water show at the I-M
.pool tonight with a title-bound water
polo team and America's classiest
college swimming squad both going
on display.
In the dual swim meet starting at
7:30 p.m. Matt Mann's crew of cham-
pions will be highly favored to chalk
up its eighth straight win, but the
water polo match that follows will
find the Wolverines in a vastly dif-
ferent position. -
Wildcats Are Powerful
Coach Tom Robinson's Wildcat
polists are the power of the Western
Conference, having decisively beaten
four straight Big Ten foes so far in
the fight to regain the title they lost
last year.
With water polo a regular sport on
the Evanston campus, Robinson
comes here with a team of experienced
veterans built around Capt. Bob
Newman an All-Conference forward.
Daily practices have enabled Robin-
son to form a harmonized and highly
coordinated septet.
In the other offensive posts he will
use Bill Bitting and Jerry Zehr. Ray
roivoala, Fil Kreissl and Bob DeKeif-
er will be at the guard positions while
Dick Andresen will play goal.
Wolverines Still Confident'
The Wolverines, on the other hand,
play water polo just once a year and
that's when Robinson and his gang
are on the other side. They use no
set plays and never practice together.
Still the Michigan lads are confident
and determined for victory. Needless
to say it was almost the same Michi-
gan water polo squad that was confi-
dent and determined for last year's
battle and the Wildcats won that one.
Included in the starting Wolverine
lineup tonight will be Capt. Hal Ben-
ham at the goal, Jorge Carulla, a for-
mer Spanish player, John Sharemet
and Larry Wehrheim, at the guard
posts, and Bill Holmes, Gus Share-
met and Jim Krieger at the three for-
ward positions.

Non-Resident Students Affected
Most By Substantial Rate Boos
Fee For State Residents Raised Only Five Dollars
New Schedule Prenared To 'Offset Cost
Of Various New Student Services'
A sweeping revision of tuition fees, with substantial increases in ever
school and college, was announced yesterday by University officials.
Most of the increase-which amounts in one instance to $40 per semen
ter-will fall upon students from states other than Michigan.
The new schedule will go into effect immediately, beginning with t1
1940 summer session, officials said.
Residents of Michigan also will pay more for their education, but th
rise amounts to only about $10 per year in most departments.
The sharpest increase is for out-of-state engineering college student

Unless something beyond the wild-

Warren Breidenbach and Stan Kel-
