When she nnswered questions she looked straight at Nowhall Instead of at Sel lers. "He often threatened the life of Jo eephlne," testifies Mrs. Howard, "nnd enured us continual trouble. A year ago he broke a window of our home to Bhow his hatred. My son, who was then a policeman, arrested him ; but we did not press the matter. He promised to reform." Mrs. Howard paused and her eyes flamed. "But he kept right on In the same way. Later he threatened to cut Josephine with a razor. He was ar rested, but we let tlint drop, too.

Irtchtini? nlnnes to nrotect the. slower bombing planes, and bombing planes In sufficient strength to sink every ship which would yield to bombing. Grant thnt battleships cannot bo sunk from the nir. which is n big concession, for the airplane Is capable of still fur ther development. If sufficient airplanes I went out to meet this licet 100 miles j from shore nil its smaller units would be soon destroyed, its submarines, its ' destroyers, its cruisers. I And the life of the big ships depends upon its smaller attendants. Once tho destroyers nnd other scouts nnd pro tectors of the capital ships were sunk the enpitnl ships themselves would be i nt the mercy of hostile submarines. No nation would risk Its battleships under conditions in which the other ele ments of the fleet were certnin tobo sunk. So the question whether the bat tleship itself will yield to bombing Is not of the relative importance that it seems to be. Cannot Insure Fleet's Safety Nor could airplane carriers with the hostile fleet nrotect it from attack from n distnnce on a const like tlint of tho I'nlted States. It is true thnt a fow fighting plnnes oould hnve destroyed the bombers which sunk the submarine last week nnd a carrier could bring with the enemy fleet fighters ns well ns bombers of Its own. But so mnny more fighters could come out from the shore tiinn could be carried by carrier ship that this defense would soon he destroyed. The lesson if the last war was that , the submnrine hnd greatly limited the operation of nnval fleets. The develop ment of the nnval bomber hns still fur ther limited them A fleet ennnot np proach nnd nttnek n country well equipped with plnnes. And when two enemy countries are close together, as England and Germany were in the Into war, it is n question whether fleets can Ho at safety in their own harbors ns the "English nnd Gcrmnu fleets did during that war.
