The most disappointing feature of the
year, according to the general board
and Admiral lienson, Ims been the
slow ptoKies.M with development of na
val aircraft.
"I'ndoiililedly much preliminary
work Iiiih been done experimentally
which does not show," the board says,
"but the application of this very Im
portant branch of the service to the
pliu tlcal uses of (he fleet ha not yet
been ruily developed. Satisfactory
aircraft do not appear as yet to be
available for use with the fleet."
The. board recommends a new or
ganization of the flying service under
a directing officer In the office of the
chief of operation. While admitting
the slownesH of aeronautical develop
ment, Admiral lienson evpresses the
hope that u big machine designed ami
built by the navy and now under test
mny solve Hie problems encountered.
Only Seventeen Aeroplane.
The report shows that the navy now
lifm seventeen aeroplane In active
service ainl that sixty more have been
ordered. In addition several French
ami lllltlsh-madc machines have been
ordered. '
In its brief review of the Huropean
war, thu general board finds nothing
to warrant modification of Its previ
ous belief that the battleship Is ' the
backbone of the sen power of a na
tion." For this reason, (hn repoit
adds, the board has determined that

It is uliown that the batteries decid

AVashington, Dec. 8. I'npt teedent-
fd growth of the country foreign
trade, t'he loommerciiil' advantages
which will accrue from peace and the
opportunity presented for a heavier
export btisines and greater Invest
ment abroad are net forth today by
Secretary Itedfield, of the department
tif commerce, In hit annual report.
The report gives figurfiu showing the
nation's trade expansion of two years
and stun up the country's commer
cial dominance as follows:
"Our foreign indebtedness has been
1 educed possibly three billion. We
have loaned abroad a total sum since
the war began on August 1, 1914. es
timatod at $ 1 ,r,(IO,llOO,(HMi, and in-
Teasing. We are the wealthiest na
tion in the world and the most pros
perous one. We have not wasted our
men or mean In war. Relatively to
our fiscal power today our debt are
trifling Xation les wealthy than
i-ome of our individual state bear a
heavier burden of debt and interest
than we.
Only ircat Nation at I'cntV.
"We are the only one of the great
industrial people nt peace. Xation
turn to n for good and mean with
which to pay us for the goods. None)
of us, in our wildest financial fancies
five years ago, would have dreamed
that things could be as now they are.
"To protect our reserve of gold,
which is the ultimate base on which
our domestic credit rest, we must
maintain our export trade and must
continue to increase loan ami invest
ments abroad. The work of the l'u
tenu of foreign and domestic com
merce Is devoted to these Important
duties. The report, of the chief of
that service shows its extraordinary
growth and effectiveness. In tliou-s-
ands of business offices it aid Is ac
knowledged and Welcomed. Never
has our government, put at the dis
posal of our business and Industry
tho helpful facilities that are now pro
vided. "It is of national importuncc that
the great service which shows such
practical results should be given the
men and money necessary to carry on
its great work even more efficiently.
The force of commercial attaches
should ho enlarged. Further sums
should be provided for the foreign
traveling service. The department
acknowledges with keen appreciation
the aid which congress has given. The
Hinds for promoting the foreign trade
of the country ure now five times
larger than they were four year ago.
The results are many times greater
than Hie increase In funds."
Jhro Money Xcttlttl.
The secretary urges larger appro
priations for all the bureaus of hi
department, and for enlarged build
ing facilities. KxperlH in many lines,
be says, are being employed con
slant ly ut higher salaries by private
concerns, thu crippling the depart
ment in its work. This is particular
ly true, he says, of the scientific bu
reau. Higher pay is asked for these
t Xpert s.
"Never," say the report, "has the
demand for scientific and technically
trained men t'cn so great as at pres
ent. Tliis has resulted in the loss of
many well-trained men in the bureau
of standard's staff. The time has
come when some of the salaries paid
such experts must he increased or
their services dispensed with. This
run not be done without a loss in
quality and the deterioration of the
high standard of the bureau's work.'
Kxpert In the bureau of foreign
and domestic commerce, the report
declares, are pair! imich less than men
similarly placed in other government
(iepnrtments and In private employ.
The report tells of efforts during
the year to reduce Industrial wastes
and f It paper saving and other
campaigns and work In introducing
new sea foods through the bureau of
fisheries.
