the P.rookl vn's tu-n decided the
events of the day. He had not men
tioncd the loop in his report of the
battle as it was an incident in the
battle which he had no idea would
ever come into controversy. Cook
had given the order without orders
from him except i-nder his general
instructions to close in ami keep
somewhere aloiit one thousand yards
away outside the broadside of the
toredo range. When the time came
for the turn Cook's concept ion of the
movement coincided with his own.
Although Cook gave the order he
would have done so in a moment had
the captain of the Brooklyn failed to
"Do you assume full resjionsibility
for the turn?" he was asked. .
"Absolutely, if I did not give the
order. I approved it," replied the ad
miral. f 'rortff Examination Completed.
Further on I.cmly said the admiral
had stated three different reasons
why the llrooklyn had made the turn
anil wanted to know why he made
ihe tnrn. The admiral replied: "As
1 have already stated there's another
very much more important reason
which you have not asked and that
was the ship might continue in ac
tion and bent the enemy as we did.
That was the controlling one of nil. i
There were several other reasons we
could perhaps conjure tip about it."
"Diil" you have each of these various
reasons in mind at the time?"
"Probably all of them and others."
At 2:3 the cross examination was
completed and the court announced
that it had some questions to m.U.
