r, "DESERVED THE IRON I CROSS." J GERMAN SUBMARINE BOY'S TRIBUTE j TO SKIPPER OF ANGLo I CALIFORNIAN. I I NEW YORK, Sept. 8. The New York "American," which has been telling the adventures of Carl Franz List, an American sailor lad, on board a German Submarine, U 39, oonclud the series with a description of how the U 39 I tried to destroy the Anglo-C;alifomian (the j Swa.n?â¬Q. tracer) on Hu?day, July 4. The U ? had diacharged her last torpedoâand nusaedâaborts y before sighting the Anglo- Ca?if.om.ian. ?.?t says:- We wen-t for b. r without a single torpedo in our tubes, and with but a handful of sheAis for the deck gun. That meant surface work. We fired into her rudder, hopartg to disable her, but she kept on steering in circles. U j 39 was doing almost trial speed. The gun â¢was eating up our last shells. But the wily II comm?tMbr on the Aiiglo-Calif?'s bridge kept wo?.kmg in spuls to escape. Our captain ordered the gun to a.im at the I bridge and sweep the deck underneath. The lookouts noted that the steamer's skipper I had fallen, and that some one was steeling I the ship flat on his stomach. Meanwhile boats were being lowered, but it was a mystery -how th-e-, kept from being swamped, as the Anglo-Californian never slowed once. We were ordered to count the few remain- ing sheilis and aim accurately. We riddled the bridge and funnels with a furious fire, but the last round of ammunition was gone and there was no surrender of the Anglo- Galiforoian, which was still zigzagging. As a last resort a maxim was brought on deck and clamped to the top of the coruling tower. It began to fire bullete by the bedtfuQ.
