The article states that the Negro man went aboard the submarine and found one Negro man and five little brown men who escorted him through the ship. The whole affair lasted a half hour or perhaps longer. (This sounds very much like some alien abduction stories of more recent times). The man was questioned by the State Highway patrol and later it was found out that the FBI had taken the Negro farmer to St. Louis for additional questioning.
