Feb. 0.-The Wall Street J Journal publishes today some inside facts on the destruction of U-boats. "It. was nut- quite a year ago that i we announced that, important measures had been inaugurated by which the German submarines were doom-e/l," if stated. "The report now is ^.hat the capture and sinking of German submarines has reached 1. 1-4 a. day, or per month-more German I losses each month than there were German submarines at the out break of the war-Vhile German construction is at the rate of only 2.1 a month. A submarine cannot safely sink lower than 200 feet as the water pressure is too great. Airplanes and seaplanes can detect, them from above at almost this depth and certainly well beyond 100 feet. Tim aeronauts and the birds s^ce the bottom of every lako over which they fly. By reason of the water pressure the ocean depths are without, life and their bottom is volcanic ash and meteorites. The submarine must, keep within the domain of the fish on shoals and shores and like � the fish, their air Madder bursts under pressure or concussion. "When the United Stales and her allies have a sufficient number of air-planes and sea planes, they can clear the ocean of every submarine just as isffectively as the British navy swept Iho German raiders from the sea and sweeps up the mines that Germany sets afloat.''
