A moment ago she sent her torpedoes lashing into the flanks of another enemy warship, adding one more irreparable loss to the dwindling Jap fleet. The Japs hate our submarines, and fear them; and no wonder! Submarine sinkings now total well over 1000! In the historic naval engagement during our invasion of the Philip pines, U. S. submarines first made contact with the enemy fleet. Big Jap cruisers and a carrier were their part of the kill. After the battle, the communiques paid special tribute to the work of the subs. In fact, a high naval official has recently said that "The submarines deserve the lion's share of the credit for knocking the props from under Japan's conquest." With the help of the Navy, Electric Boat Company developed U.S. submarines from the crude early models of 1900 to the present SUBMARINES big, efficient, long-range ships. And Electric Boat Company now builds more submarines than any other shipbuilder in the United States. ELECTRIC BOAT COMPANY 33 Pine Street, New York 5, N. Y.
