TO SIMS' (1iAEGES
dniiral Defends "Good Name of Navy."
War Work Praised. -
Washington, April 7.-'restif3ing to
day at his own request before the sen
fte committee investigating the Sims
Daniels row, Adinirad Rodman, con
mander in chief of the Pacific fleet,
took direct issue with Admiral Sims'
charges and criticisms.
Admiral Rodman denied categorical
ly the charge that the navy entered the
war without plans or policies; that
It was unprepared to fight; or that it
was a mistake to attemipt to direct
naval operations from Washington.
The admiral saidl he appeared from a
sense of diuty and "to defen( the good
name of the navy" the work of which
in the war, he praised.
Admiral Rodinan declared that nev
er in his more than -10 years of ser
vice had the fleet been in a better
state of lreparedness than in the
spring of 1917. Some types of vessels
were lacking, he conceded, notably
battle cruisers and scout cruisers, but
generally speaking the navy "was
ready to fight."
MVithout any attempt to avoid per
sonalities, Admiral Rodman character
lzed as very indiscreet the Sims' letter
to Secretary .Daniels which brought
about the ipresent investigation and de
clarcd that Sims committed a breach
of confidence In making pmblic "an In
timate and confidential conversation
which should have been held sacred."
le was referring to Sims' statement
that Admiral Benson had told him just
before leaving for London "not to let
the British _*ull the wool over your
The charge that the navy entered the
war without plans or well defined poll
cles was not correct, Admiral Rodman
testified, adding that experience on the
general board had given him oppor
tunity to help prepare such plans an
ticilpating the ':robable advent of the
United States into the war. These
plans wece later modified t6 meet ex
isting conditions, he said. Admiral
Rodman asserted that the navy had
many sources of information andl rec
ommendations abroad other than Sims,
wvitness; said, im plied the navy had ale.
1'iyed the war hy not accepting all of
his reconmiendat ions.
The charge that the navy dlepart
meat should Rnot have at temipted to
condluct operatilons from a ploint 3i,000
miles from the wvar zone, was denied
by3 Admniral R~odmlan. who declared that
the ''war 'mai hnt fought anal won ini
London'' and that the only place for
the direction and admiinistration of the@
navy's policy was in Washington.
"Tio have moved our whole admin
istration to London, even though 3,000
miles separatedl it from the scene of
hostilities, would have been a serious
blunder,'' he said. The adlmirai add
ed that he thought there had been an
evident effort to dliscredit the navy,
anal his impression was that Adlmiral
Sims sought to give the impression
that lhe had most of the resp~onsibiility
for running the wvar andl that the navy
department- "fell dowvn on the job)" be
cause it did( not followv his advice.

Merit That Makes Mileage
-In Tires for the Smaller Cars
Such extraordinary competence and care
fulness as are characteristic of all Goodyear
manufactureikewise characterize Goodyear's
building of tires for the smaller cars.
Only very unusual experience and endeavor
make possible the high relative value built
into the 30x3-, 30x3%-1/2, and 3 x 4-inch
Goodyear Tires in our Plant No. 2, the
world's largest factory devoted to these sizes.
O In addition to the largcr sizes Goocdyar
builds, a daily production averaging 20,000
tires of these smaller sizes alone mak&es them
V easily available, regardless of the big den and,
to owners of Ford, Chevrolet, Dort, Max
well, and other cars taking these sizes.
If you are one of these owners, go to the
nearest Goodyear Service Station Dealer for'
these tires, and for Goodyear Heavy Tourist
Tubes. He carries a stock.
