I TMe Secretin y talked at some lengtli
'.about Hie reforms Me Mns In mind ways
and means of making Hie navy more at
tractive to young men and of reducing
the number of desertions. He said:
, "I want to see If It Isn't possible
to m.tigate the punishment of young
men who desett for too first tttmc. Such
young men nre punTxhed with about as
much severity nx old offenders I don't
believe that Is a good thing. It strikes
jue wo can teaclt them that thev must
not d'-sert. and nt the same time edu
cate tjicm tn letter Idenls
"Tho problem of desertion Is one of
which I Intend tn make a thorough
studv. The number of desertions Is
appalling. Now, there must be some
thing wrong or so ninny men wouldn't
be In a hurry to take French leave
from our ships. I believe that If we
make the service more attractive we
can cut down the number of desertions
"I Intend to send the ships on foreign
cruises as much as possible. Young men
won't etiur the navy If they can't hnve
a chance to see the world. They can
get their drill and work as well when
tho ships are on cruise abroad nx when
the ships nre on thlx xlde
"I find too. that the education of
skilled gunners nnd electricians and ma
chinists costs the Covernnient a lot
of money. A gentleman Informed mo
Hint It costs the I'nlted States Sto.noii

ments can be offered such as will per
suade them to remain tn the navy.
"Another thing 1 have In mind Is to
make promotion less difficult for the
capable enlisted man. There- ought to
be some way for the .voting man worth
his alt to get to the top In the navy "
The Secietnrv said that he had been
