Rear Admiral Albert Gleaves head of American transport and cruiser op erations, made this statement: "X am within the limitation of orders when I say that the United States has a large number of first class battleships now preparing side by side with the best ships ot the British navy for an engagement on the high seas which la expected to occur at any time with the German fleet,' the speaker said, prefacing hia narration of the honor accorded Am erican fighting ships when an en gagement waa expected. Navy 4 Times Greater. "We have about 160 Teasels over there and between 16,000 and 40.000 men aboard them,' the admiral said. "We now have a navy of 1 000 offi cers and more than 400.000 men. This means that we have a navy four times greater than It was just before the war." Many questions were asked of the admiral. One was as to the practi cability of carrying airplanes , on cruisers. Admiral Gleaves said: -Seattle' lias Airplane. All navies have experimented along such a line, but the airplanes are so fragile they are often put out of commission by the discharge ot the big guns of a cruiser.
