NAUTILUS: Portland, 2 – The commander of the American nuclear-powered submarine Nautilus announced here yesterday that the vessel was the deadliest enemy of any surface vessel and that the results of its performance in a recent NATO exercise in which it participated were beyond all expectations. During the exercise, the USS Nautilus – which has a crew of 15 officers and 100 NCOs and seamen, reached as far as the Arctic Circle. The longest time the vessel was submerged during the exercise without rising to the surface was 14 days and three-and-a-half hours.
