In He port to Secretary Danteln. WASHINGTON, December 2 ? Lack of long range torpedoes is deolared a paramount weakness of the United States Navy by Rear-Admiral Joseph Straus, chlel' of the ordnanco bpreAy. in his annual report to-day to Secre tary Daniels. All battleslilpsj except tho two latest Dreadnoughts, ar'riiored crulsors of the Tennesjjou class, scout cruisers and the older destroyers, the Admiral says, are equipped with a "short range torpedo which may bo considered obsolete for the battle fleet." Since the battleships Nevada and Oklahoma were designed, however, all new vessels have boon provided with tho modern torpedo, and as rapidly as posslblo the equipment of older ships Is being changed. Admiral Straus thinks Improvement in tho efficiency of officers and men who handlo this branch of tho navy's work .has not oven kept paco with tho slow development of material. "The bureau is of the opinion." he reports, "that tho torpedo material hae developed much more rapidly than the torpedo personnol." In the faco of renewed agitation for an exterior explosive, tho admiral re iterates his firm faith in the armor piercing: explosive. "The bureau," he Bays, "Is mora than ever Inclined to the opinion that the best projectiles aro.of tho armor-pierc ing type, carrying sufficient exploslvo to detonate and fragment tho projec tile after having passed . through ar mor; and It Is thought that tho pene trative power of projectiles has beon increased to Insure a satisfactory per centage of success." Experiments to determine the rela tive value of different types of armor plate are said t6 have shown the exist ing typo to be superior to all others.
