THIS YEAR’S NAVAL
GRADUATES TO BE
SENT TO BIG SHIPS
Due to a shortage of commissioned
officers in the battle fleet, a good
share of the First Class at the Naval
Academy has already been detailed to
duty with first-line ships. Rear-
Admiral Henry B. Wilson, superin
tendent of the Naval Academy, has
been notified that berths have been
alloltted for 205 of the new ensigns.
It was estimated yesterday that the
navy lacks 1,300 of its normal force
of commissioned officers.
“Should 400 graduates be commis
sioned,” the order sent Admiral Wil
son said, “they will be ordered tc
ships approximately as follows: Bat
tle fleet, 205; scouting fleet, 165:
special forces. 30. If less than 400
are graduated these figures will be
approximated as closely as possible.”
Detail of the new officers to the big
ships will permit the department tc
assign the more experienced officers
to the auxiliary craft, where the re
sponsibility upon JJie individual, offl-;
