With the deliver:- of the Delaware a new record in the construction ot warships in the United States will have been entablish.il.

From the laying of the .ship's keel until she is delivered to | the government just twenty .-.even ' months will have elapsed. Rather Remarkable Record. Considering the great size of the I ship, this record is a rematkable one and compares most favorably with I that cf anv of the foreign yards for | the building of ships of the Dela? ware's type. The best previous rec? ord in batUichip bjlMIng in the Unit- I ed Mates was thirty-sewn months, established by the local yard in the construction of the lattleship Louis? iana, which is of 1,000 keen Uautage than Mo Delaware.

The crew of 872 men for the Dela- j ware is being assemi led at the Nor? folk navy yard, but it will not be transferred to the ship until she is ready to go into commission, llefore -joining the Atlantic fleet next sum? mer, the Delaware will have var.oits speed and endurance tests off the At- j Jantic coast.
