ALL REPAIRS AT NAVY YARD Proposed Also to Install Com plete Facilities for Shipbuild? ing at Some Place on Atlantic Coast Other than N. Y. (I'roni The Tribune BurcdU. 1 Washington. Aug. "JT.?The Secretary of the Navy in his first annual re? port will urgo legislative sanctlon of a poliey ho haa already adopted ln flo far as he la empowerod and whlch lnvolv.'s a reversal of the poliov of th?s last adminlntration lookit g to the in creaafld 'anVlettcy of the tieet atloat." To the **nd that civillan employe8 of naxy yards may enjoy increased em? ployment Secretary Daniels has al* ready issued Instruotions that all re palrs whlch can be postponed shall be deferred untll the ahlp reaehes tha navy jard, lnstead of being made by the offle.-rs and orexv while afloat. In adoptlng thls poliey Mr. Daniels is reje.-ting tho advice of practically all his expert advlsers, who are convtnceoi that ln time of war the efficiency of tha fleet might largely depend on the ex? perience of the personnel to rapldly repair the datnage of battle without running to a naxy yard. Under tho edvtce of those exp*.*rts, the personnel of the Amerlcan navy haa requlred a facility ln making auch repaira enjoyed by the personnel of no other navy ln tho world. Secretary Daniels also confemplatea recommending tho installatlon, at aoma navy yard other than at New York, fa? cilities for complete shipbuilding, thla step also being in opposltion to tha ?\dvlce of the naval experts. He would provide the means of bulldlng a battle ehip at such a yard in order that there may be two plants on the Atlantlo coaat, and possibly one on the raclfio coast, where shipbuilding aa well aa renovatlon and overhaullng may ba done. It has been held that the facllitlee ot Now York in thls partlcular were. Bufficient, especially as some consldera tion mlght profltably be given to tha shipbuilding plants in order that they might have a share of the government work and bo be encouraged to maln tain adequate ehips and retain expert workmen. The proposltion probably wlll meet* with approval of tho House and Senata Naval Commlttees, only so far aa lt favorably affects navy yards ln tha distriets of Representatlves and Bena tors on those commltteea. Naval offl cers belleva that ehlpbulldlng should bc done by contract, both because lt is ? far more economlcal method ofi constructing vessels, and because lt lai an encouragement of the maintenance of prlvate plants. whlch must largely ho depended on ln tlme of war for, repairing ships damaged ln battle and for new and rapid constructlon. The naval ofhYers inslst that much of tho overhauling and renovatlon on, board shlp should be done by the ahip'a. force. thereby saving time and coat andi Increaslng the efficiency of the offlcara and crews to cope wlth emergenciea. Thfl efficiency in this respeet of tbai battleship fleet on Its clrcumnaxigatlng cruise was a source of admlratlon and amazement to the i.aval experU of other nations. i ARMOR PLATE COMBINE REVEALED, SAYS DANIELS Bids for Supplying Battleship from Three Oompanies Identical.
