Pages of History: Rumors aside, no enemy sub has washed up

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, January 1942.

Repeated rumors of enemy submarines drifting ashore after being bombed by defending planes had been entirely unsubstantiated up to today. Reports of a submarine breaking up near Trinidad Head proved groundless, someone mistaking a rock for the undersea craft.

Joe Hammer, returning from North Bend on Tuesday, said he heard at Marshfield that two Japanese subs were on the beach at Gold Beach. When he got there, he said, the rumor was that Coast Guardsmen were searching the beach at Brookings for a grounded submarine. And when he reached Brookings, the search was reported to be in Crescent City. And so far there just ain’t no sub!
