The board ot Naval Bureau chiefs have
decided to modify slightly the designs
for the conning towers of the battleships
of the Massachusetts and Iowa class.
At present the plans provide for a vertical
elit eighteen inches wide as an entrance
to the tower. It has been pointed out that
an entrance so narrow would be impossible
for some of our commanding officers of
generous girth who might thus be obliged
to turn over the direction or the ship in
action to a more slender junior or c:.pose
themselves in the more commodious pilot
Therefore the plans have been mourned
so as to make the entrance, slit wider and
of elliptical 6hapc.
