STIENGT[ OF SUMIS
Called to Attention of Committee.
Fighting Efficiency of 'Eritish and
American Vessels Discussed at
Washington, Dec. 21. - Relative
fighting efficiency of 'ritish and
American battleships, particularly at
'long range Were understood today to
have .been called sharply to the atten
tion of the Senate naval committee in
consideration of the pending naval ap
prow"ation bill. Naval officers. are
knc i to be greatly concerned on the
point as the British have virtually
completed -post-war modernization of
their 15-inch gun ships and no start
on similar work has yet been made in
the Anierican navy.
The effect of the British post-war
improvement ,it was said today in
naval circles was to give the entire
ipain British fleet a range of 30,000
yards against a maximum of about
20,000 yards for all American battle
ships but the Tennessee, California,
ellaryland, 'Colorado and West Vir
ginia in addition as perinitteo under
the Washington treaty the British
ships have been equipped with "blis
ter" anti- torpedo construction and
their decks armored against airplane
bombs and high angle fire.
A rough estimate of the cost of
modernizing American shilis in the
same way, so far as increasing gun
elevations and strengthening decks
-is concerned, is approximately $60,
000,000. In the British estimate as
high as $4,000,000, is said .to have
been expended on a single ship.
' When naval estimates were under
consideration in the budget bureau
and later before the House appropri
ation sub-committee, it. was said,
funds were asked by navy officials
for a limited beginning this year on
making over battleships to -be retain
ed under the treaty.
Change from coal to oil fuel is of
vital importance in widening the ef
fective radius of action of the ships
it was explained by naval officials,
while su.bstitution of five-inch anti
aircraft batteries means using shells
wth a fifty-yard "burst" instead of
the 25--yard area covered by 3-inch
projectiles. In other words, it was
said, a "curtain of fire" against air
craft with five-inch guns would need
one half the number of guns in action
to make it ffecotive.
NEW USE FOR SCOTCH LAKES
Long Famed In Song, It Is Now Ser.
ously Proposed to Develop Their
Scotland is waking up to the fact
that its lakes and waterfalls may be
made to serve' other purposes than
providing scenic attractions for tour
ists. As 'proof of this the "Grampian
Electricity bill" has been given a sec
ond reading in the house of commons.
In this a company is empowered to
collect and use the waterA of 15 lochs
find 00 small lakes, rivers, and streams
over an area of 417 square miles,
The waters proposed to be utilized
are estimated to be capable .of gen
erating 50,000 horse power to supply
electricity in the counties of Perth,
Kinross, and Forfar, and districts in
four other counties. The capital is
placed at ?4,500,000 ($22,500,000).
That any of the beautiful lakes and
falls of "Caledonia stern and wvild"
should be usedl to set the wheels of
industry spinning, miany in Scotland
regard almost as sacrilegious desecra
tion, And that opinion is sharedl by
not a feWv Americans. who are accus
tomed to -visit Scotland annually.
But the promoters declare that the
preservations of.- the natural beauties
of. Scotland is expressly provided for
by the terms of the bill. And they, add
that when the hum of the electrically
driven wheels is heard In the land
and dividends begin to come in, the
cry of "desecration" will be heard no
more--New York Post.
