in response to questions about pos-
sible retaliation that regular Navy
orders applied. He noted the tor-
pedoing was clearly in the American
Defense Zone.
The regular orders given the Navy
last Sept. 11 were to hunt down and
eliminate any "rattlesnake raiders"
in American defensive waters.
Although the Navy said nothing of
the raider's nationality, members of
Congress quickly assumed it was a
German submarine and talked of re-

clared the Navy should retaliate "with

Chairman Connally (Dem.-Tex.) of

marine. that invades our defensive

(In Berlin, authorized quarters
said the only information there on
the torpedoing was the American re-
ports, and for that reason comment
was withheld. It was pointed out that
German submarines were not in con-
stant touch with their bases and
usually returned to their stations be-
fore making reports.)
Aside from an apparent general
disposition to regard the incident as
intended to affect the Pacific situa-
tion, the reaction of legislators varied
widely. -
Representative Cox (Dem.-Ga.)
called it "probably the incident for
which we have been waiting," but
Senator Nye (Rep.-N.D.), opponent of
administration foreign policy, de-
clared there was no reason it should

no casualties, but that won't make
any difference."
'Kearny' Hit
Seen AsPart
Of Nazi Plan
Simpson SaysHSubmarine
Commander Has Orders
To Hunt For Victims
(Associated Press Staff Writer)
Destiny rode the deadly warhead of
the torpedo that wounded the United
States destroyer Kearny, providing
an overt act fraught with conse-
quences still to be revealed for this
country and for the Axis.
The encounter between the Kearny
and a craft which was presumably
a German submarine came at a mo-
ment and under circumstances which
compel recognition of the incident as
a deliberate part of Hitler's master
war gplan. Its repercussions upon
American public opinion are yet to
be assessed. There can be no reason-
able doubt, however, that the sub-
marine commander who loosed that
torpedo at the Kearny was under
Berlin orders not only to hunt for
victims in forbidden waters off Ice-
land, but to strike specifically at
American warships.
The blow was struck just as Berlin
was picturing Russia all but beaten
into impotency. It came also as
Japan, shaken by a cabinet crisis,
seemed to have cast its lot anew with
its European Axis colleagues by ele-
vating an Axis-minded member of
its military caste to the premiership.
Berlin Assurance
Into that timing can be read a

definite Berlin assurance to Tokyo
that if Japan's pro-Axis. policy leads
it into war with Russia, Britain and
the United States, Nazi sea power will
be interposed in the Atlantic to ease
the odds against .it in the Pacific.
And the purpose of that assurance,
now implemented by the actual tor-
pedoing of the Kearny, must have
been to induce Japanese action
against Russia in its hour of supreme
That was already implicit in Tok-
yo's political upheaval, admittedly
forced by widely divergent views
among its public men as to which
road Japan should now take in a
wartorn world. That German agents
in Japan have been busily thumbing
the Axis silent partner down the Hit-
ler road goes without saying.
German Moves Hidden
The attempts of the fallen Konoye
cabinet to reach a peaceful rapproche-
ment with London and Washington
have been anathema in Berlin. Yet
any German moves to short-circuit
these attempts remained hidden until
