Four American Shipbuilders Submit
Proposals-No Estimate of Costs
Vashington, Dec. 11.-Four Ameri
can shipbuilders submitted proposals
to the Navy Department Wednesday
for the construction of one each of
the four gigantic thirty-five knot bat
tle cruisers authoriz;,d as a part of
the 1917 building progranm. No esti
mate of cost ere included, each bid
der taking advantage of a ne pro
vision of the naval appropriation act
and offering to build a ship for cost
plus from 10 to 15 per cent profit.
The bidders ere the 'Newport
News Shipbuilding and Drydock Com
pany, the Union Works o San Fran
cisco, the Fore River Shipbihdiing
Company, of Quincy, Mass., and ;vil
liam Cramp & Sons, of Philadelphia.
The only other private builder in the
country that might have sought one
of the contracts is the New York
Shipbuilding Company, which' notified
the department that its stocks al
ready were filled with other work.
Since no direct proposals under the
lim ination of $16.500,000 for the cost
of hull and machinery of each ship
was received, department oflicials be
gan at once an examination of the
cost and percentage oilers with the
expectation of working out a uniform
agreement under which each bidder
will receive one of the ships. The
Newport News company and Cramps
fixedh 10 per cent as the pr'ofit they
dlesiredl, while the other two comp~a
ni, s suggested 15 per cent, but were
willing to leave it to the fedei
tradle commission to determine a fair

ft was said there was no likelihood
that these Oilers would be . accetable.
The time hi xed for deli very of the
ships ranged from 418 to 5I months
and while some modifications may be
secured from the bidders it is prac
tically certain that the first of the
huge vessels will not he 'ready within
four years for a trial to dletermine if
it has the thirty-five knot speedl for
which it is dlesignedl. It dleveloped to
dlay that the exact tonnage for wvhich
the department's plans call is :3.1,600.
With the battle ciruiser contracts
awvarded the only portion of the 1917
nrogram remaining unpllacedl will b~e
three scout cruisers, bids for which
have been readvertised and will be
opened next month.
