ITALIAN SUBMARINE

A WONDERFUL ESCAPE.

Rome, December 19. During the Italian landing in Albania many attempts were made to attack convoys. An Italian submarine had a thrilling encounter with three Austrian torpedo boats First they tried to ram gthe submarine, but she dived, and rose close to the seoond torpedo boat. Then she dived again to avoid being rammed, and rose again fifty yards from the third, which fired a torpedo, but the missile missed the submarine. The latter also fired and missed. The three torpedo boats dosed round the submarine, which dived deep and stole away. A mine or torpedo, however, seriously damaged her bows. The airtight compartments alone saved her from sinking. She was repaired under water, and rose at night time and eventually reaohed her base.
