Highlighted also is the history of the Navy from its authorization by the Continental Congress in 1775 to modern times. The role the Navy has played in maintaining American democ racy is stressed. Also emphasized is the importance of sea power and the outstanding excellence of the United States Navy equipment and personnel. In addition, this program salutes Navy Day, cele brated on October 27, the twen tieth official observance of this day. Idea for this holiday was first suggested by Mrs. William H. Hamilton of New York City to Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., then Assistant Secretary of the Navy Since that time the sponsorship of Navy Day has been under the auspices of the Navy League of the United States, a civilian or ganization. This date was selected princi pally because it was the annivof sary of the birthday of the late President Theodore Roosevelt, always an advocate of a strong Navy. Normally Navy Day is a tribute to the officers and men of our naval forces but this year the shipyard workers turning out new ships at record speed are included in the salute. This year's slogan for Navy Day is: "The Nation Salutes The Navy."
