Additional Details:
Defying a warning shot across her bow, the German freighter Arauca outran a British cruiser along the Florida coast and entered Ft. Lauderdale harbor to safety. The freighter sailed from Tampico enroute to Germany with much needed oil. The British cruiser stands guard outside the three mile limit ready to attack if the Arauca leaves the harbor. Thus the European war may at any moment break out off the Florida coast
