This is the sort of thing a pugilist does wheu he is preparing for a fight. He takes as sparring partner a man who is nearly his equal in weight and wallop. wallop. A better simile may be found on the football field. An eleven composed composed of th# eleven best football players players in America is not a football team until It has played together. Team work must be built up. 'This Is getting us hack to the ron- dition the fleet was in before 1914.” That is the comment of practically every officer with whom I have talk«*!. There is no effort on the part of any to disguise the fact that the fleet is not today. What is was seven years ago. These statements are made in no spirit of criticism, and should not be misunderstood. ’They are, on j the other hand, a frank recognition of a condition which exists, .and which Admiral H. B. Wilson is rapidly bettering. bettering. Personnel Has Gone Back. “In 1914 the big fleet was inferior to no fleet in the world in its personnel,” personnel,” is an often-heard statement. "Officers and men alike were snappy, They knew their duty. The fleet worked together as a team.” Now the big fleet is better in material material than it was in 1914, but the personnel personnel has gone off. This could not have been avoided. For years it was divided and its energies dissipated, it did useful work, but it was no; the work of a battle fleet preparing for action. When the United States went into the war the battleship crews were decimated—and more—to give gun crews to the merchant vessels ’<k cf <<- *>♦ ,/• S'« * ì , Vy> » ;k, . , Ü I D; - m . ■U' ■ m ■ I •« , ■■ ■».» . . fr<< h —Photo bjr Uucklia ALBERT KANTER AN D HIS WIFE, EDITH K.
