BMiiMssrniT SUPREME IN FLEET Development of Aircraft Has but Added to Complexity of Naval Welfare. Washington.—“ The battleship is still the backbone of the fleet and l lie bul wark of tin- nation's defense. The air plane lias added to the dangers to which battleships are exposed, but lias not made the battleship obsolete. The development of aircraft has but add ed to the complexity of naval warfare.” This, in effect. is a summary of the report to Ihe secretaries of war and navy by the joint board on the bomb ing tests held recently off the Virginia Capes. The report gives the airplanes arid airships full credit for perform ing splendid work In the tests, but in sists that the development so far of air aircraft has not furnished even an economical Instrument of war leading to the .abolition of the battleships. The report is signed by (leneral Pershing as senior member of the board. In this connection, however, the board says: “Aircraft carrying high capacity high explosive bombs of suf ficient size can sink or seriously dam age any naval vessel at present con structed provided such projectiles can be placed in the water close alongside the vessel "Furthermore, it will be difficult, If not impossible, to build any type of vessel of sufficient strength to wlth , stand the destructive force that can • lie obtained with the largest bombs , that airplanes may be able to carry • from shore bases." , The report adds that “the aviation > and ordnance experiments have proved , that it has become imperative ns a • matter of national defense to provide , for tlie development of aviation. i “They have proved also the neecs ! sity for aircraft carriers of the muxi i ilium size and speed to supply our fleet , with tlie offensive and defensive power > which aircraft provide. It is likewise | essential that anti-aircraft armament i be developed.” ‘ -r> ; LATEST EVENTS : AT WASHINGTON ’ o ——■— '■ l — —1 ■ 1 -~A I Appointment of William J.
