D. Meeting of Clarendon Teachers.
On1 The Teachers' Association met In the
ol- court house Saturday. There were few
present, yet we had a very interesting
meeting. The topies disoussed and the
discussions were such that will surely
i prove helpful to everyone present.
a Devotional exercises were conducted
va by Rev. Ansley of the Baptist church.
is After which Mr. Bomar, of Bloomville,
at and Miss Murchison of Oakdale school.
read splendid papers on "Relative Co
,i operation of Parents and Teacher."
One of the teachers to whom this sub
y ject had been assigned being absent,
at after brief discussion the next papers
were presented. "School Credits for
i Home Industrial Work," was present
s' ed by Miss Edge. After some discussion
of this subject, the question box wasi
id opened and the round table discussions
on. "How best Improve a Child Moral
id ly?" "How to meet the ever trying re
ie quest of 'please allow my boy or girl to
e stop History or Latin or Algebra."
"The economy of time in the ungraded
country school." "What should be the
special attitude of the teacher toward
pupils who attend irregularly?"
Field Day plans were then discussed.

Newport News, Va., March 15.
Picked workmen were busy tonig
completing preparations for the laun(

In size and gun power the Penns3

Elizabeth, of the British navy, whic
led the recent terrific assault of tt
allies on the forts of the Dardanelle
While the British monster carrii
larger guns, her main battery is on:
two-thirds the size of that of the Pen:
sylvania in number and the America
battleship is 3,000 tons greater in siz
The main battery of the Penns
vania will consist of twelve 14-inel
45-calibre rifles, set in four turret

gun arrangement adopted in the sisi
ships, which preceded her, the Nevai
and Otdahoma. Her tonage moasur

Nevada and Oklahoma and the Quec
Elizabeth. Tbe latter, however, ca
ries eight 15-inch rifles, 45-calibre, sq
two to a turret-, while the Nevada am
Oklahoma bave ten 14-inch rifnles eac
in two three-gun and two two-gun tui
rets. In all these ships, including tb
Pennsvlvania, the turrets are all a

Details of four other British battli

Five ships of the Japanese nav:
estimated for in 1914 add known as th
Fuso class, will not equal the Penj
ylvania in tonnage with their di
)lacement of 30,000 tons, but will car
,he same main battery of twulve 1
nch riffles. They will exceed th
?ennsy!vania in speed, estimates cal
lg for 22 knots against 21 knots fi

that Great Britain, Germany an

ir as is known, however, no vesse:

When completed the Pennsylvani

hani $13,000,000. She will be ready ft
sommission, under contract, by Febri
try 28. 1916. Her keel was laid Oct<
ber 27, 1913.
The enormous size of the new shi
and the startling rapidity with whic
battleship construction had develope<
even before the great war, is indicate
by comparison of the Pennsylvani
with the British battleship dread
naught, first of all the big-gun-ships
any navy. The dreadlnaught was est
mated for 1907. She was designedt
displace -17,900 tons, but actuallyi
considerably larger. In the main ba
tery are ten 14-inch guns with a broa<
side fire of six guns and her trial spee
was 21.2 knots.
The Pennsylvania will be equipp-e
with turbine engines, as is the Oklah<
ma, the Queen Elizabeth and all of tt
newest, English, German and Japanes
battle craft. The Nevada will be ope
ated by reciprocating engines, whi:
the California, of the 32,000 class, wi
be driven by electricity.One of the otl
er two American battleships of ti
Califonia class will have turbine er
gines and the other reciprocatingi
line with the navy department's polic
of not entirely abandoning the recipr
cating type until a thoroughly satisfa
tory marine turbine is found. If ti
experiment on the Califonia with eles
drive, current to be generated by steal
turbines running at high speed, is si
cesssful, the engine problem may t
solved, It already has proved satisfai
tory in a navy collier and the exper
ment with the Califonia only needs1
determine whether it is equally eff
cient in high power plants.
