General Manager Walter A. I'os:
and Superintendent of Hull Construc?
tion Homer U Ferguson, of Ule New?
port News Shipbuilding A Dry Dock
Company, lift last night fur New
York, where tomorrow they will sail
tor Liverpool, Kngland. on the Cunurj
liner Mauri tania. They exjK-ct to be
abroad about two months.
At the main office of the yard yes?
terday afternoon it was 'stated that]
the trip of the officials had no par?
ticular significance and that it was I
being made as much for pleasure as]
for any other reason. Their tour,
however, follows closely upon that |
of iMr. Fred J. Gauntlett, the local]
auditor of the yard; and it is gener?
ally supposed that th-y are golug 'u|
search of work 'from foreign gov?
ernments and ship owners. The out?
look for work in this country In tbe|
near future is not especially promis?
ing and that fact strengthens the be?
lief that the officials are going after j
foreign work.
The Itinerary of the trip has not
been made public, but it Is known
that the yard officials will visit all
of the principal countries at Europe
excepting Russia. No work can >,e
secured in Russia, as that country
recently enacted a law requiring all ]
warships for th? Russian navy to be
built in Russia.
As the result of the recent enlarg?
ed naval program that has been]
adopted by England, Germany.
France and other of the European]
nations have adepted a large war?
ship building program and 't is i*>s-j
stble that some of thus ships may
nave to be built in other countries.I
That the local yard can compete sue- j
cessfully with the yards of the con?
tinent of Europe |s au established
fact and the trip of Messrs. Post and
e-rguson may be a very profitable
c for this yard. '
During the absence of the two offi?
cials. Assistant General Manager
Hopkins will be in charge at the ship?
yard. The hull department will be
under Assistant Superintend, nts or
Hull Construction W. A. Ross and
Joseph Weaver.
