THE CENTAUR COMPANY. NEW YORK CITY.
were that nearly a hundred German
merchant vessels taken over in dif
ferent ports today will be regarded
as the property of the American Gov
ernment and paid for after the war.
The vessels laid up in American
harbors for safety at the outbreak of
the war in Europe were seized today
immediately after the House's pas
sage of the war resolution. Their
crews will be removed to immigration
detention stations, there to be treat
ed as aliens, admissable to the country
if able to pass the ordinary immigra
tion tests. The fact that many are
naval reservists will not serve to bar
There were indications today that
damage done to the ships by their
crews when relations between the
United States and Germany were
broken will be repaired as early as
posible and the ships put into the
transatlantic trade to transport sup
plies to the Allies.
The total tonnage could not be
built in American yards in less than
a year and some of the largest ships,
. notably the Vaderland, could not be
produced in the United States in sev
Will Be Dry Docked.
All of the ships will have to be dry
docked before they can be made sea
worthy. Bureau of avigation off
cials pointed today to practical (diff
culties that will delay repairs in that
the ships will fill the country's dry
. docks for some time to conme. The
- great Vaderland, with a tonnage of
t 54,000, is too large to enter any of
-the American dry (locks and will have
to be towedl to Balboa to be (locked.
- The earliest time estimatedl to p~ut
' any of the vessols into service is three
Smonths. Many of them canot be re
pairedl that soon.

A inai decision as to the disposi
tion of the ships probably will be
made within a few days. A brief
statement issued aty the Treasury De
partment today said they were being
taken' in .charge r the purpose of
protecting them and other iroperty.
Offcials said an "intelligent use"
would be made of the vessels and
that they either could be used as na
val auxiliaries or as merchant ships.
Most of thejm would make excellent
troop transports. Fourteen of the
largest and swiftest could carry 40,
000 troops, which is twice as many
as could be transported by the entire
available American merchant fleet.
Some Officials Differ.
Some onicials said today that the
ships could not be taken over by the
United States formally and put into
service without an act of Congress.
They said also that there was a strong
likelihood that if put into service
they would be operated by the Ship
ping Board, which, under the law, is
authorized to charter and operate
German-owned merchant vessels
which are being taken in charge to
day by American authorities are:

Would Take Three Months.
If the German ships are taken for
service by the United States most of
them, it was said at the Department
of Commerce today, could be put into
service within three to four months.
If the United States dlecides to send
an army to Europe the ships will
prove~ invaluable. Fourteen can carry
at a speedl faster than fourteen knots
