tion of last year for the Immediate
procurement of medium caliber rapid
fire guns for coast defense to the ex
tent of 200 semi-automatic high veloc
ity - 6-pounder guns on pedestal
mounts; 200 semi-automatic guns of a
caliber large enough to fire shrapnel,
mounted on field carriages, and 200
automatic machine guns, 30 caliber.

ply of ammunition of at least 100
rounds for the large guns and mortars
and 250 rounds for the rapid lire guns,
as without a sufficient supply of am
munition the coast defense armament
Is useless. An abundant supply of
ammunition for target practice also
Is requested nnd other measures are
recommended looking to the install
ment of range finders, searchlights,
telephone lines and other necessities
