Coast BELIEVES THERE ' IS ONLY ONE OF ' SUBS. OFF. U. S. LwnLaSv June 15.-German submarine activity off Allimtic Coast ot United States has not been taken very seriously us the Germans probably will not attempt a blockade of tho American'shores. This Ib the opinion ot Vice Admiral Sir' Rosslyn Wemyss first sea lord.bfthe British admiralty. The admiral believes that there is only one submarine operating off tlic American coast and that the purpose of its trip across fho Atlantic was to frighten the Americans. German' ruthlessness at sea, the first sea lord declai'ed must be met by centralized' warfare in the North Sea and the JIcditerrHnean. Tribute To Americans Admiral Wetnyss paid tribute to the co-operatfon of the American navy forces. He said tho American ships not only were stationed in the North, but wore also operating In the .Mediterranean and off Gibraltar. "The enemy has merely made a uemoustratton with tho hope ot causing us to decentralize our etforl.s to put do'wn the submarine. His object is to frighte:! the American people in the hope that they may exert their influence on their naval authorities. "You will remember that Napoleon once, declared that 'exclusiveness of purpose is tlio secret, of great successes and of great operations.' Now if th? Germans .could cause a dispersal of, naval forces tills demonstration off- the American coast would achieve its purpose. Two Principles .1 hold firmly lo two principles, as chief of staff I believe firmly in decentralization in ndmintstratioa but as chief ot staff I also believe as firmly in the centralization ot effort against the enemy. I think it was Admiral Mahon who said tjiat the great end of a war fleet is not to chase nor to tl^. but 40 control the seas. "Now, with that statement in mind, glfence at an ordinary school atlas if you have not got what the Germans-would call 'war map' handy. You win observe that the Central I'owers. have formed a, block In Europe, running down from tho North Sea to the Adriatic and to the point where the Dardanelles debouch Into the Slcdit-orranean. Any submarine to reach the American coast has to pass either to the north or south of the British Isles or along ; tlie .Jledlterranean where Gibraltar' stands sentinel over the narrow exit.
