The year 1866 marked the beginning of a series of mysterious and inexplicable incidents in mid-ocean.
Merchants, sailors, captains, ship owners, and governments the world over were deeply concerned. Ships
had encountered a sed monster of great speed and proportion. This monster had, on several occasions, attacked
steel-plated vessels and successfully penetrated even steel hulls with his terrible spur. These events soon came

The shock of our abrupt meeting with the water
left me unconscious. When I awoke, I found that
Conseil had managed to hold my head above water
and had sighted a spar to which we were soon cling-
ing. We Called to the fast-disappearing frigate for
help, but its damaged rudder rendered it unable to
help either itself or us. Spying what we .supposed
to be a floating isle, we clambered wearily over its
slippery sides. which we were astounded to find were
sheet metal. It was here we found Ned Land, a quiet,
strong Canadian, who had been engaged to harpoon
the beast, We fell asleep from exhaustion and on
awaking, found ourselves prisoners of several dark-
clad men. They fed us with some food that was un-
known to me, Then we were brought before the mas-
ter of this strange craft. He had made a decision
to turn us back to the sea, but he o17ered to let me
live because of my reputation as an authority on sea
organisms. I was unable to accept this of7er to save
my life at the expense of my eompanions. We were
put on top, and "the monster" began to submerge
very slowly. As the water was about to engulf us.
the boat was brought back to the surface. We had
passed Nemo's test of courage and loyalty.
Senior Class officers and Mrs. Wade have a good
time making plans for their annual Career Day.

After a nights rest ue were brought to the cap
tain s quarters uhere we were to breakfast Aemo
as ue came to know him revealed an astonishing
fact All of the food Clothing and pouer for the
ship came directly from the sea The food that we
were eating then was Composed of turtle dolphin
liver, and saute of unborn octopus. This latter dish
seemed to ca-use Ned Land some trouble in swallowing
and as a result, Nemo's pet seal came in for a good
meal. After the meal, Nemo took me over the
NA UTILUS and showed me its power plant and ear-
plained its workings. The submersible was powered
by electric motors zrhioh were able to generate enough
horsepower to push the NAUTILUS at the tremen-
dous speed of fifty knots, Nemo then conducted me to
his library whieh Contained twelve thousand volumes
of the best literary and scientifie reading. Also in
the room were rare .specimens from the entire sea,
some which were unknown to the world above. This
Nemo was no illiterate pirate.

I had not seen Nemo for several days and I received
with surprise a note from his mate. It contained an
invitation for me and my eompanions to aceompany
them on a hunting trip. Ned was overjoyed at the
r-ham-e to yo on dry land again. Soon after breakfast
the ner! morning, we were ready to go. The chosen
party assembled in the lower eompartment and we
were issued our diving gear. As soon as the heavy
helmets were .settled over our heads and our breathing
apparatus was working, pressure was put on the room
and the outer hatwh opened. We slipped elumsily
through the open-ing into the water. Nemo and his
1-rew walked easily and gracefully aeross the sea
sands, but I had some dijjieulty in maintaining my
balanee. We half-walked, half-floated to a marine
garden where the r-rew was already busily Collecting
a harvest of sea weed. Others were bringing giant
sea turtles, killed by their electrie guns, to the
NAI.'TILL'S. We walked through the underwater
gardens until the depth of the water showed we were
nearing land. Nemo stood for a moment gazing bit-
terly toward shore-and then. turning quickly, he
started the trek back to our underwater home.

During the night, the NA UTILUS left the sands of
Crespor with great speed. Steering a southwesterly
course, we had traversed the 750 leagues that separate
Crespor from the La Perouse group, when we ran
upon a reef. The tide went out and left us "high and
dry" for several days. As we were near a small
island, Ned and Conseil gained permission to go
ashore, supposedly to take specimens for my collec-
tion. No .sooner were they beached, than Ned began
to walk merrily through the jungles toward what he
hoped was freedom. Ambling slowly into a cleared
space, he came among d group of savages. They were
engaged in drying a group of .skulls which were sus-
pended gruesomely above the fire by their hair. Ned
decided that it would be of greater benefit to hini
if he could leave that place immediately. Jumping
up and reversing direction rather rapidly, he attained
the beach in. very little time. He and Conseil. still
followed by the yelling blacks, rowed hastily back to
the submarine. They were unable to close the hatches
and rushed down to summon Nemo. Nemo came back
to the bottom of the hatch just as the natives began
to pile over the side. There was a slow, curious push
toward the hatch and one of the moreadventuresome
ventured in. As he did, Nemo twisted a lever and a
small charge of electricity hit the adventurer. Yell-
ing, he turned, and as the charges spread over the
deck, the aborigines began to jump into the water.
There was seemingly no end to the network of de-
fenses about Nemo's home.

Nemo stood looking into the horizon for several
minutes' Turning his face tulsted uith sullen hate
he ordered us to our quarters' After we had eaten
our supper ue began to get drowsy and ue realized
too late that we had been drugged It was some time
later that I uas auakened Nemo had come for me
He asked if I were a doctor and I replied that I was
a surgeon. He conducted me to his quarters where
a man lay sick. Upon closer examination, I found
that he was wounded. not sick. His skull had been
crushed by some heavy object and I guessed that the
NAIJTILUS had made an attack on a ship and that
something had broken and hit him. I did all that I
could for the man, but he died that night. The next
morning, Nemo asked me to accompany him on an-
other underwater erpedition, The party walked to a
quiet, protected place on the ocean floor which I soon
realized was a burial ground. The man was lowered
into the grave and Nemo said a prayer over him.
Later, on. board ship, Nemo said, "My dead sleep
quietly there. out of the reach of sharks and-.1IEN."'

After the burial, the NACTILUS sailed into the Indian Ocean. Here we stopped for a brief visit to one of
Nemo's chief sources of delight, a giant pearl that had grown over the centuries with such perfectness that it
was then worth Z-7 million dollars. It was here that Nemo showed a very human facet when he saved rz poor
Indian pearl diver from a tiger shark. The NAUTILLTS sailed on after this brief respite and soon slipped into
the Red Sea. This seemed a rather foolish more on. Nemo's part as the Red Sea had only one outlet and was
far too thickly populated with .ships for a vessel such as the NAL'T1LL'S to remain long undetected. There was
some eonjecture as to where Nemo meant to go. TVhen he announeed that he would enter the Mediterranean
Sea, I was astounded and questioned him about this. The Suez Canal was not eompleted and there seemed to be
only the long route around the tip of .tfrif-a. Then Nemo told us ofa subterranean tunnel jar below the isth-
mus that eonnevts the two eontinents. We en-tered this tunnel and the torrent of water passing from the Red
Sea to the Mediterranean. took us through in less than twenty minutes.

Leaving Vigo Bay, we steered a southerly course and soon entered the southern polar region. Nemo hurled
the NAUTILUS at all obstructions, and we crushed everything in our way until we came upon a giant iceberg
which we were unable to circumnavigate. I gave up all hope of ever reaching the Pole, but Nemo took the
simple measure of plunging under the giant mass of cold water. After sailing under it for several hours, the
ice finally became thin enough for us to push through with the spur. Surprisingly, the farther south we pro-
gressed, the water became more open and- the temperature actually began to rise. At last, our calculations
showed that we had reached the South Pole! We immediately filled our air reservoirs and started back under
the ice. We had nearly gained the northern end of the iceberg when a serious accident occurred. Part of the
iceberg split off and turned over leaving the NAUTILUS trapped in a narrow tunnel. We were encompassed by
giant walls of ice and a slab of ice imprisoned us from below. Working frantically in the frigid water, we
were able to free the NAUTILUS and passed in the open sea just before our last tan-lc of air was exhausted.

After our harrowing brush with the ice pack, we sailed into warmer waters. As we were idling quietly
under the ocean, Ned, who was sitting at the window, asked me to identify a strange monster that was lurking
outside. I looked, and could not repress an expression of disgust. Before my eyes was a horrible monster,
eight yards long. with eight long feet twisted like the Hfuries' hair." The monster's mouth, a horned beak
like a parrot's, opened and snapped shut with a vertical motion. Its tongue, furnished with a row of teeth,
quibered in and out of the veritable pair of shears. As we moved by, the poulp gripped the rudder and tangled
in the screw which brought the NAUTILUS to a stop. Nemo had ares issued and we went up on deck to cut it
loose. Enraged, the giant squid pulled itself upon desk to face us. It waved the slimy tentacles furiously and
all were in danger of being thrown over. As we watched, horrified, the monster pulled Nemo from the deck
and brought him slowly toward his horny beak. Ned, with a Herculean heave on. his harpoon drove it deep
into the poulp's only vulnerable spot, his eye. It heaoed conrulsively and then slid op' into the water. Ned lished
Nemo out of the water and Nemo soon regained consciousness. His only words were, "Why did he save me!"

We slipped into the Gulf Stream and followed it for several leagues. During the night, we changed our
course toward the northeast. At dawn when we sighted a vessel that carried no flag, Nemo's face took on a
look of implacable hatred and immediately he gave the order to ram it. The spur hit the center of the ship and
split it. It exploded and sank rapidly: I watched horrified as the drowned seamen were drawn down by the
strong eddy. Turning to Nemo, I perceived that the terrible archangel of hatred was still looking. Following
him into his room with my eyes, I saw the portrait of a woman, still young, and two small children. Nemo
looked at them for several moments, and kneeling burst into deep sobs. I at last understood his great bitter-
ness toward the world for having taken his family. Soon afterward Ned came to me with a plan of escape. We
climbed into the dinghy and prepared to free ourselves from the NA UTILUS. As we cut loose, we found that Nemo
had run the NAUTILUS into the dreaded Norwegian maelstrom! I know not how we escaped from the whirlpool,
but when I regained consciousness. I was lying in a fisherrm1n's hut. Today many questions still fill my mind-
Does Nemo still live? Is the NAUTILUS still plying its way under the waters? If it is, and Nemo still inhabits
his adopted country, the ocean ,' may hatred be appeased in his vengeful heart.
