Now the Battleship Faces the Big Test If you knew vvliril Ihe future of the battleship is jroinK lo 1)0, the experts of tlie 1935 naval conference will probably give yon ;i jolj. Battleships have been ignored by naval conferences ever since the historic WiisliiiiKlnn conference of 1HU1. With two or thi'i'c exceptions, no battle- shirs have been Uunu'hoil since Ihen. The naval competition of Hie past decade lias been in cruisers and auxiliary craft. Next year, however, there is to be a new conference, and tho hiiltlesliii) will cut a big figure. A strong move to cut down battleship has fougnn. Japan, it is said, would limit such craft to 25,000 tons, Engkiml would cut them to 22,000 ton?, some smaller powers would reduce them to 10,000. Only the United States would keep the figure where it is now—at 35,000 tons. * * • Back of all this difference of opinion are certain strategic considerations, of course; but the chief factor is the inability of naval experts lo agree on v.-hat role the battleship will play in future warfare. The evolution of those giijanlic fighting ships is interesting. Originally the battleship \v»s simply a grown-up cruiser. The old-time "line of battle ship" of sailing flays had three gun decks where the frigate, or cruiser, had but one. She presented her battery in three tiers; otherwise, she was just like the smaller craft. The evolution of the revolving turret, begun with Ericsson's Monitor, led to a new kind of battleship, cue which had a strong secondary battery arranged in u broatblue, an:l a big-gun battery of four guns, mounted in pairs in turrets. Then came the dreadnaught type. in which four or six turrets were ' - mounted on a line amidships, capable of being fired on either broadside, and the secondary battery was reduced to unimportance. ' H was then that the battleship really began to grow. Hulls were made larger and larger, armor plate was made heavier and heavier, the big guns were made more and more powerful; and now we seem lo have readied the limit of useful ?\M. MJ that, some experts doubt if the huge battleship Is really worth what it costs. The argument probably will not be .•cllleil until a large-scale naval war is fought and the relative value of I ho dillVrenl typos of lighting ship is decide:! in actual combat. And we can only hope that I In: United Slates licet isn't SIDE GLANCES By George Clark vhich (be lest is one- of made. —lintci 1 Friendly Gesture Tin: United States Congress will do a graceful aiid a gracious thing if it follows ['resident Roosevelt's suggestion and orders returned In Canada the official mace of the parliament ol Ontario, captured in the War of IHlIi and now hold at the U. S. Naval Academy at Annapolis. As the president points out, I'm- more than a century tlie^' two countries have maintained a completely unarmed and unfortified border, and n<» man in his senses supposes that Hie next century will bring any change in i\i\- policy. Whatever passions the war of 1 ^ 1 - iiroii.scd have died out geneva!i»ns ago, and any action that would help extinguish the last memories of bitterness would be a good one. This mace does the people of the United States no good: it is doubtful if ono American in 10,000 even knows his government possesses it. To ivluni it would lw: to emphasize the enduring solidarity of the friendly relations between the two nations. m Price of Ruthlessness Russian authorities delving in the official archives in tlie (own of Ka/.an recently turned up a good deal of material bearing on Ihc; execution of Alexander Ulianov, who was put to death in 1887 as a plotter against the cxar's government; ami the incident is a reminder that this execution was' probably the most costly one the Russian government ever ordered. For Alexander Ulianov had a brother, who became world famous a generation later under the name of Lenin; and it was the execution of Alexander that started this Lenin on his revolutionary career. H made him an implacable and sleepless foe .of c/.arisni; thereafter he .schemed and plotted and worked night and day for one aim—the overthrow 01 the czar's government. World history might be .somewhat different if the c/.ar hail exercised a little lenicnev back in 18S7. i e >( i ! y, •4*. <1fr Jt-ffU Ot* ? 19J4 •¥ hE* StdYICr. mC J*-' *& -iiu ANNOUNCEMENTS Tho Courier Ne*a nM been authorized to announct the following a? candidates for public oBice, subject to (lie Democratic primary next August: For County tattt '/itK.
