Admiral Coontz Declares
Naval Service Hampered
by Small Man Power.
i
| The United States fleet during the j
I past fiscal year was seriously ham - i
j pered by the insufficiency of the al- !
j lowed personnel, Admiral R. E. j
i Coontz. chief of naval operations;
| during that jferlo*. declared in his!
{annual report mrflie public today. !
The report said (he necessity of j
j finding crews for several new light ;
i cruisers commissioned during the j
j year required cutting down of coin- j
piemen ts at submarine buses and }
j elsewhere to a point that meant loss j
jof efficiency.' Admiral Coontz added |
i that it lias been necessary to use .
i first class battleships for the practice •
I cruisers of midshipmen and to use I
destroyers for experimental work,
'taking them away trom their regular]
J duties. "This should not be," de- j
| dared the admiral.
Delay* In Conatraetlon Cited.
‘ In connection with delay Ih com- J
pitting the S-class submarines of the j
I program laid down in 1917, the report ;
I said all r t these should be completed i
: during current fiscal year. "It is j
la sad unenlary on shipbuilding t
j facilities in the United Slates,” the i
' report added, 2when it takes seven ,
1 years to complete fifty submarines ]
' and then have the majority of them ;
• unsatisfactory." The S-boats are the j
i 80n-tonners of the war-time program. !
j Speaking of work on three larger
' fleet submarines, building at the
Portsmouth navy yard, the report
said:
“Not -even one of these will be com
missioned during the next fiscal year.”
Submarine Force Jane SO.
On June 30, 1923, the submarine
force consisted of seventy-five first
line submarines, twenty-seven sec
ond-line (out of commission), twenty
one boats under construction, three
fleet submarines (T-boats out of com
mission because of ‘‘lnferior" per
formance). There were twelve first
. line boats commissioned during the
fyear in addition to the three fleet
submarines, which were laid up again
almost as soon as they were com
pleted.
