A few hours before kindly fate,
aiding the never failing "luck of'the

from nearly two days' entombment
in a submarine, one end of which
rested on the ocean floor and. the
other stuck up in the vatqr at air
angle of 60 degrees. Penned up(.foT
hours in two' narrow compartmciits
they had waited hour after hour for
release. . . . .
Every minute of the time had been
accompanied by a joke or aH laugh
or a smile from someone, even dur
