Willamette Iron & Steel Torks to
Fit One Eight More Ships, Be
ginning; With West Zeds.
West Wyska is the name of the 17th
steel freighter which the Willamette
Iron A Steel Works has equipped with
machinery and completed under a con
tract with the Northwest Steel Com
pany. The craft will leave the plant
today for Its official trial trip. West
Wyska is the fourth name selected for
Originally she was one of eight Tea
eels ordered from the Northwest Steel
Company by the French government
and the contract indicated she was to
be christened Meuse, but when ships
on the ways and those under contract
were requisitioned by the American
irovernment, on entering the war, the
West Yaquina was indicated as the
name. On being launched the ahip was
christened West Kyska, and now West
Wyska is her title.
Trial Trips Are Different.
The West View, a sister ship, was
given a trial of six hours in the river
yesterday, but the West Wyska must
proceed to sea and steam for r2 hours
outside, though both are to be assigned
to the Navy. The reasons one is sent
into deep water for her endurance run
and the other was tested inland is not
known. Both vessels were ordered
tested under different conditions than
ships of the same size and type in the
past. In, that full cargoes were loaded
Instead of only about one-third of their
. capacity being filled as before.
It is said the Willamette Iron A Steel
Works will fit out eight ships more.
- beginnlnr with the West Zed a, which

Vessels floated later will be fitted out
by the Northwest Steel Company at its
new plant, adjoining the main yard on
Large Fleet Im Water.
Recently the Willamette interests en-
: tered into a contract with the G. M.
. Standifer Construction Corporation to
fit out sis of the latter's wood steam
ers, and the third of that fleet is now
at the plant The Standifer force
launched six vessels July 12 and, with
others already in the water, the fleet
was too large to fit out expeditiously,
so six were assigned to the Willamette.
Future vessels, both wood and steel,
launched by the Standifer crews, will
be fitted out at Vancouver. The steel
yard is to have an exceptionally well
equipped plant for finishing the ships
and a dock built for the purpose will
accommodate two of the 9500-ton ves
sels at time.

used in carrying nitrates from the

be in the market for charter. The
Coast-owned sailing and auxiliary
fleet has been engaged well in advance
' ever since the war began, being taken

gramme at Today's Session.
Part of the details of the harbor de
velopment fostered by the Commission
of Publio Docks are to be discussed at
an adjourned meeting of that body this
morning. There will be considered a
few routine matters, as well, but the
probabilities are that most of the ses
sion will be devoted to the considera
tion of an outline of the work.
The Commission notified the Port
ind Harbor Facilities Commission of I
the Shipping Board about 10 days ago
that it eoon would be ready to take up J
the matter of receiving suggestions aal
to what was deemed most essential for
immediate consideration on behalf of I
shipping expected to be taken care of
in the near future.
The nderstandlng Is that the Gov
ernment s attitude will be that of an
adviser to all ports, not attempting to I
dictate improvements to be mad.
