WASHINGTON, Nov. i Recruit In fop th navy is progressing bo satisfactorily that naval, of flclale be lieve it soon will be possible to send to sea a large cumber of vessels of all classes now carried on paper as part of the fleets, but actually tied up at navy yard for lack of crews. Rrecruits are tnterins the service at a rate exceeding i.SOO a week and the training stations are daily send in large numbers of tnen to the rieets alter the usual lour months ot i training. The navy was only 28,000 ) men short of the authorized strength of approximately 143,000 Nov. 1, and it is believed at the department tha the full strength will be reached be fore March 1. .. . As a result of the shortage of ex l perienced men, it became necessary last -winter and sprint to place a large number of vessels entirely out of commission or, lay them up with greatly reduced crews. Eighteen bat tleships are with the Atlantic and Pacific fleets on cruising duty, how ever, while four others have reduced 'crews. Thirteen of the .older type are out of commission. Of the 243 modern destroyers com pleted and turned over to the navy, only 65 are in full commission and, of these, 25 are iiv European waters or are outfitting for service abroad. Of the remainder, ISO are laid up vdyi crews of 80 men abroad and the o friers are out of commission. It is explained at the navy depart ment that there la no expectation of ever placing fujl crews aboard all the destroyers in time of peace as the navy now has a super abundance of this type of vessel. About 50 per cent of the destroyers eventually will be kept fully manned and on duty with the fleets and the others given only large enough crews to ketp them ready lor duty In tne of emergency. The naval reserve force, naval of ficials say, can always be depended upon to provide trained crews for both destroyers and battleships in reserve when occasion demands. No modern submarines are out of commission, according to naval offi cials, but 36 of these vessels of the older types are without full crews. Difficulty has been experienced in training men for the submerBiblea, due to tht peculiar eechnical nature of the duty. Of the 65 eagle boats on the naval list. SI are fully manned and 14 are In ranrva no liiannri In the n&Vdl re serve forco for training purposes, it is siaua, wiin w truweii w boats in full commission and 24 in reduced commission or laid up.-' The substantial increase in. pay ,h. now n , tha taut BPHSlon " ' v " of congress, together with the recent in minpAiripM nr nn exienaea cruinc by the Atlantic and Pacific fleets this winter to porta in 8outh America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand, have served to greatly stimulate en listments, officials at the department say. , .
