WASHINGTON, July 14 Acting
under specific authority granted in the
ne- naval appropriation bill, tho
navy department soon will start con

mirals Taylor and Parks, heads of the
bureaus ot construtlon and repairs
and yards and docks, respectively,
have instructions to speed up the
preparation of the -working plans, as
an 'expenditure ot about 53,500,000
for two hangars to house flying ma
chines of the Zeppelin type has been
authorized. They will be located on
the seaboard, probably n New Jersey,
and possibly on the same site.
Ground area necessary for the con
struction ot n double hangar will be
about one square mile. Each hangar
will be about 800 feet long, 250 feet
wide and from 150 to 200 feet high.
It Is probable that all steel construc
tion w ill be used and officials estimate
that, from six to eight months will bo
needed for their erection.
Provision for the purchase abroad
of a Zeppelin type airship at a cost
not to exceed ?2,500,000 is made" in
the naval bill, and the construction
in thte country of a similar machine
at a cost of $1,500,000. It is probable
that tho machine purchased abroad
will be of the British R-34 model al
though larger. It probably will bo

being to attempt to tow it by cables
