An Interesting fham battle fought In foggy weather oft the Atlantic coust by rival Hlumlrons of the fleet resulted In the successful de fence of the coast from "enemy" attack and the destruction of the "enemy" sub marines by tho defending squadron. A report on the theoretical battle was made to Secretary Daniels to-day by Rear Admiral William H. Itcnson, chief of naval operations, who has Just returned from a week's visit to the fleet. The Atlantic fleet after leaving New port, It. I., was divided into an enemy Httacklng forr having as Its object a laid on the coast and a defending force to repulse, and destroy tho utVckern. Kach side had battleships, ' destroyers ana auxiliary craft, a a required In war, The rival forras then scimratcd. The first Problem for the defenders was to locate the attacking force, which threatened to attlke at any point within n considerable radius. As the weather was liaiy and at times almo.-t foggy this task was difficult The smaller craft steamed out to pursue the march, and wora was later wirelessed to the buttle ships that "enemy" submarines had been located stealing shoreward. A sharp engagement followed between the underwater craft and the smaller typo of vaasel screening the battleships. Tho foggy weather apparently permitted these smaller vessels to reach the sub marines before they could submerge, and the three pounders and three Inch guns made matters too hot for the 'enemy' submarines, fluch of them that could not submerge In time were theoretically ahot to piece and the attack was ef fectively repulsed. The locating of the "enemy's" heavier forces followed and placed the attacker at a distinct disadvantage. Had It leei real war the battleships of the "enemy" would have suffered severely and not ac complished their object of raiding the coast. Hear, Admiral llenson said there was the keenest Interest Ih the theoretical battle. It wan, he said, a very beneficial practice for the officers and men. Last Saturday the battle efficiency pennant was hoisted on the Texas, Capt. John Hood, commander. The gunnery trophy was prenented to the oftUrrs and men of the ship. This wan done with appropriate ceremony, the Navy lepart ment being represented by Admiral Ben son. The engineering trophy was pre sented to Hie officers and crew of the Michigan, Capt. Carlo II.
