USS HADDOCK develops a leak and floods during a deep dive while on a test run near Hawaii. The Navy confirms the incident, but denies the vessel is unsafe as crew members had charged in late October. A number of enlisted men had protested sending the submarine to sea, claiming it had cracks in the main cooling piping, leaks, and malfunctions and deficiencies in other systems, including the steering mechanism. The Navy replied that in accordance with strict safety procedures any problems are corrected before the ship goes to sea.
