BLOW AT TRANSPORT SERVICE
Seven Vessels Known To Be Lost, And Some Re
ports Place Number of Victims at 15
Two U-Boats Known To Be in Action
(By the Associated Press)
New York, June 3. Germany has carried her unre
stricted submarine warfare to this side of the ocean and
at least seven vessels have been sunk by submarine at
tack off the Atlantic coast. Some reports say as many as
fifteen vessels have been sunk.
Although the presence of German undersea boats has
been reported in American waters for some days past, no
loss of ships had been reported before today.
It is known that at least two U-boats are engaged in
the camnaign which is assumed to be aimed chiefly at the
4in&rican transport service. A report that besirl es attack
ing off the New Jersey coast was current that a sub
marine was attacking off the New England coast. Presum
ably the Germans are employing the cruiser type of sub-
arine in this campaign...,

This challenge to the fighting
forces of the United States would be
met, officials said, with the-5me
-measure which have driven the sub
marines to cover in the war zone and
the steady flow of American trans
ports to France would be guarded
with the same protection that has
carried them through the submarine
infested waters of the British Isles
and France with a remarkably low
loss of life.
Submarine blockades in the prin
cipal transport lanes and about the
lanes of the embarkation ports has
long been counted upon by American
naval officers as one of Germany's
last cards, and they have made pre
parations to meet it.
