GOULD EHTER ANY PORT, Rear Admiral Fiske Inventor of New Device Plan to Guldo the Missile of Destruction by Radio From Another Aeroplane Exports Think Well of Scheme. An aerial torpedo boat for attack on ships In protected harbor Is projected In patents just Issued to Hear Adiulr.il Bradley A. Flske. now attached to the navy war college, but formerly aid for operations to Secretary Daniels. The plan contemplate! equipping u monster aeroplane. similar t.i a number now under construction In this coun try for tho British government, with a Whitehead torpedo of regulation navy type. Swooping down at a distance of llvt. sea miles from the object of attach, the air craft would drop lln deadly passenger Into the water Jint as it would have been launched fioni a de stroyer. The Impact wis the torpedo's machinery Iu motion, and It Is on at a speed of more than forty knots an hour toward the enemy ship. Could Attack In Fortified Harbor. Admiral I'lskiv believes that the Hy ing torpedo boat would make It possi ble to attack a fleet even within n landlocked harbor. Tho range of the newest navy torpedoes is 10,000 .anK and even the older types- will be ez fective at 7.0(10 yards. Carried on a huge aeroplane, the -.000 pound weap on would be taken liver harbor defenses at an altitude safe from gunllre. Once over thu bay. the machine would glide to within ten or twenty feet of the water, the torpedo rudders would bo set and It would bo dropped to do its work while the aeroplane lose and sped away. Aeroplanes to carry a ton of dead weight have been perfected by sev eral countries. Iiussla Is said to have several that will carry twenty men and the new Itrltlsh nlr craft probably will have a similar capacity. Wireless Guides Torpedo. It Is said to bo possible that a typo of radio controlled torpedo might be employed, one aeroplane carrying the torpedo and another carrying the wire less machinery to control the missile's flight through the water. It is pointed out that Admiral KIsko secured patents on such a method of control In 1800 when he was a lieutenant In the navy. They are said to be so broad and far reaching as to underlie all subsequent development of radio control devices. "My Invention." said tho application filed by Lieutenant I-'Iske before the battle of Manila was fought. "Is espe cially applicable to automobile tor pedoes and makes It possible to con trol the movements of a torpedo with great certainty from n shore, from the deck of a ship or the like." Since the nerlal torpedo plan was advanced reports have come that Ger man engineers were at work with a somewhat similar scheme. It Is pro posed to drop from aeroplanes n tor pedo that can be guided by radio Im pulses during Its fall and sent with nbsolute certainty to Its mark. ARCTIC KNOWS OF WAR.
