must be kept up to a .high efficiency in
time of peace to bo formidable In time

and West Point were the most demo
cratic schools in America, where ineilt
ulone counted and from whence men
went to llnd their careers depended
"The entire countiy is vitally inter
ested in the navy," ho said, "because
an efficient navy of adequate sizo is

A navy's efficiency In n war depends
mainly upon Its preparedness at tho
outset of that war. We are not to bo
excused as a patlon, if there is not
such preparedness of our navy. This Is
especially so In view of what we have
done duilng the last four years. No
nation has a right to undertake a big
task, unless It is prepared to do so in
masterful and effecth o style. It would
be an Intolerable humiliation for us to
