British Admiralty Director Has De- signed Entirely New Type. London, July 7. The approaching noiii of the battleship of tlx; dread nought and super-dreadnought -ope has become a live question In Frtt- Ish naval circles, in which Sir Fhllip Watts, admiralty director of naval onstruction. Is credited with having esigned already an entirely new type of fighting ship. Next year's naval program antici pates the retention or me an-oig k"h principle, but It Is believed that the ships will be considerably smaller in displacement, averaging between 17,000 and 18,000 tans. It Is expected that this new type will be superior to the present battleships In fighting In shal low waters and through the fact that It will not offer such a fine target for the enemy as the dreadnoughts now In commission. The prmametit of the new typo will be the same as the present monsters. Through the use of the cmn'binatlon turbine and reciprocating engines It Is xpected that the new battleships will make a speed of from 34 to 3C knots. BIG STRIKE IS SETTLED.

From an Instructive viewpoint the programme promises one of the most successful conventions In the history of the organization. Aside from this, however, the convention Is likely to prove of more Interest to the mem bership than any of the annual meet ings of recent jears. For several years the membership has been aligning it self Into two rival f ictions, whose dif ferences c-ame to the surface at the Itoston convention last year. Since then the war clouds nave neen loom ing blacker and blacker and all signs now iMint to a Fitter storm which may greatly affect the future of the big teachers' organization. It will be a tight against the "old order" led bv the nmbtned forces of the teachers of Illinois and New York The main Issue, and the one which 1 expected lo bring up the most serious Opposition, is the proposal to abolish t'j' v-tr- -'V.
