NEED OF NAVY
These Should Be Provided
This Year Says Secre
tary Meyer, of Navy
in His Report
WARNS THE COUNTRY
Washington, nee. c The unit-
ed btates must have a bigger navy'
and must be prepared to meet any
chance of wai In the opinion of Sec
retary Meyer or the navy depart
ment, if It Is to preserve Its national
safety. In his annual report, made
public yesterday. Secretary Meyer
pleads for three nnv battleships this
jcar, and declares that this country
soon w.H fall from second to fourth
place in the relative standing of naval
lowers. If it continues the policy of !
building only two ships each year.
International peace has been
brought no nearer, the secretary de- j
Clares, so far as a limitation of ar
maments is concerned To guard its
coast and protect its commercial ac
tivities, the United States needs a
permanent navy of 41 capital shins
battleships and battle cruisers ac- j
rording to Secreury Meier. The
present strength of the navy In bat
tleships is about 33, hut 4 ships will
r-oou be retired as obsolete
Increase Is Desired.
Secretary Meyer's reort Is a re
cital of the development of the navy
during the year, with fev. recommeti
dations beyond those contained In his
lormer reports He gives enter em
phasis to hie recommendation that
the navy be increased according to a
I program that will keep the nation in
Its present position among the world
powers; and the suggestion that con
gress remove the limit upon the
amount of money that can be spent
for aviation and permit the navy to
compete With the like establishments
of other nations in developing aerial
methods of defense.
For the coming year the secretary
of the navy urges that congress a,
proprlate money for three battleships
of the Dreadnaught class and for two
battle cruisers, sixteen destroyers, six
submarines, two gunboats, and a rleei
of auxiliaries to include transports,
eupply ships, tugs, tenders and a dry
dock. The navy general boird recom
mends four battleships- and Secre
tary Meyer points out that even
though this number should be author
ized it would mean no real Increase
in the navy as four ships are soon
to be retired because they will have
passed the age of twenty years.
r Preparedness Is Sought
Secretary Mejer expresses skepti
cism as to the abolition of war In
the near futnrc. Wars come with
little or no warning he says ,and
only by the possession of an efficient
fleet of adequate size will the coun
try be safe from attack and free to
work out Its own destiny in peace
