By George Creel, reproduced
For two years and more the Unit
ed States Navy has been the subject
of discussion as bitter as it is con
fused. The disputes between pacifist
and' militaries, between Democrats
and Republicans, have resulted in a
Babel, and out of it all have come
prejudices that do not care to both
er with facts.
The people o" the United States
are entitled to the truth and nothing
but the truth. What is slander and
what is fact? Is the navyas it stands
today, an asset or a liabilty? T? the
navy bill honest and adequate, or a
dose of "eye wash?" Has Secretary
Daniels "demoralized?" Is he a
faithful public servant. worthy of
support, or a joke?
One man only has the authority
and possesses the exact knowledge
to answer dispassionately these ques
tions. That man i Admiral George
Dewey. He has been in the United
States navy since 1854, serving
through two wars. Since 190.1 he
has been head of the General Board,
t'assing jipon naval defects, naval
needs and naval plans. By law he is
exempted from the u-unl retire
ment provisions, and if he dues de
cide to retire, it wilj be of his cwi'
volition and at full pay. Xo parti

drag him from his heights.

hen an evident indignation crripped
him. did he depart from the tone of
one trying to pick his words in the j
interest of understanding. j
"The attacks that have been made J
upon the navy." he said, 'are as false
as many of them are shameful. It is
not a junk heap. There is no demor
alization. s Both in material and per-1
son n el we are more efficient today
than ever before. Our ships are
good as any, our officers are as good
as any, and our enlisted men arc the
finest in the world.
"It is true that we have not enough
ships or enough men. But navies are
not built in a day. It was between
1906 and'" 1909 that Germany passed

rank as a naval power. This is in no

'F'onr battleships at once, and six
more within three vears." Now that
! he was firmly on his own ground, his
words e bullets. "The great
clash at the mouth of the Skaggerack
gave a test to every theory. As a
result , naval authorities are now
agreed that the battleship is still the
principal reliance of navies. As nev
er before, it is proved that victory or
defeat rests with the dreadnought.
"Four battle cruisers at once
and two more within three years.
This will remedy one of our
chief weaknesses. The Skagger
rack proves conclusively, how
ever, that the battle cruiser cannot
give and taje with dTeadnaughts.
. "Scout cruisers, four and six more
to come. More eyes for the fleet.
'Like the battle cruiser," he said,
"the submarine has been permitted to
gain a very exaggerated value. It is,
of course a most useful auxiliary,
whose importance will no- doubt in
crease, but at present there is no ev
idence that it will become supreme.
The bill provides for nine fleet sub
marines, three coast submarines,
8(Ki-ton type, and fifty-five snbmar-.
ines, smaller type, provisions that
are in line with the recommendations
of the General Board.
"A feature of the Skaggerack en
gagement." he continued, "was the
convincing demonstration of the use
fulness of the destroyer. Those tiny
ships,, primarily .designed to serve
the purpose of a screen "to be out
riders for the big ships, have been
regarded as incapable of attacking
first class ships in the daytime. The
German; destroyers descended upon j
the British fleet in broad daylight,
and the destroyers of both fleets I
played an important part in the fight-i
ing. We feel that the bill's provision
for fifty destroyers is amply justified.
So!" He turned in the chair and
clapped his hands together. "It is a
bill that gives us strength, and, best
of all, a bill that gives us balance.
"Granting all that," I said, "but
what about the need of it?" As care
fully and fairly as possible. I pre
sented the feeling of many people in
a feeling that this expenditure of mil
lions on the navy was a departure
from 'American traditions, a hyster
ical surrendedr to the madness that
has had hold on kings. His fine head
nodded appreciation of every point,
but at the end he spread his hands
in a sweeping gesture ot dissent
"I know that I am not a militar
ist," he said. "Those who have never
seen war, or who have only played
at war, may talk in terms of jingo
ism, but men who know what war
is. mid what war does, are the last
in the world to approach it in any
swashbuckling fashion. I hope the
day will come when peace and justice
rule the world, but that day is not
yet here. Xot all our idealism can

in peace, we must be able to protect
that peace." II- walked to the open
