WAPTTTNOTOV. Maren JS. With ap
proximately auo destroyers to be tn
commisalou by the end of the year, the
navy department i working out plans
for the peace-time handling of this
force. The first suggestion made was
to place S00 of the ships In reserve. Dui
it was learned today that a movement
was taking shape toward keeping; the
entire force in active commission, even
If It would be necessary -to put a larger
number of older battleships ana cruis
ers in reserve to obtain the necessary
nrnnnf 1.
Officers who favor keeping the de
stroyers in full commission believe the
training received aboard these vessels
by both officers and men would De
more valuable than the same experience
aboard the larger ships. They leel
also, that the naval events of the great
war point the way toward stressing the
future development of the destroyer
force. For these reasons the officers
are opposing vigorously the proposal
of retiring two-thirds of the force to
the reserve.
Those urging the reserve project. It
was indicated, believe a conservation
of personnel can be accomplished In
this way without laying up an increased
number of big ships.- In reserve a ae
stroyer will carry a crew of about 40
men instead of 100 and if 200 de-
strovers aro laid up It would release
12.0i0 men. Against such action It Is
argued that the 40 per cent crews are
insufficient even to keep the reserve
vessels in good shape, much less to give
them frenuent try-outs In cruising.
A considerable number of these older
ships are now employed In transporting
returning Americans. It is possible
that virtually all of these will be put
in reserve when that work Is nnisned.
Some of the old torpedo boats and de
stroyers undoubtedly will be sold In the
near future. These Include, it Is under
stood, the vessels employed in home
waters during the war. They were not
then regarded as fit for more than
limited service and with the large num
bers of new destroyers to take their
places it is believed they soon will be
ftricken from naval lists entirely.
Ieplte service of the most strenuous
nature In the war sone. however, the
line destroyers which bore the first
brunt of American participation in the
war have survived the ordeal.

Mr. Baker gave a detailed declara

including the examination of each man

Injurious rhysical effects by reason of

LONDON, March 26. (Special Cable.)
Great Britain's biggest airship, the
R-34, which In the near future will at
tempt a trans-Atlantio flight, had its
first severe test yesterday, when It set
forth from the Clyde for a circuit of the
Irish coast. The airship returned to her
base today after remaining aloft nearly
20 hours, encountering the severest
While the first of three trials which
are expected to precede the trans-At
lantic attempt is regarded In expert
quarters here tonight as highly suc
cessful, there is nevertheless disap
pointment that the airship was unable
to complete the 24-hour test planned.
High winds and extreme cold pre
vailed for two days in the waters
around the British Isles and last night
the big airship was heavily buffeted
by the gales and snow storms, and the
cold was so intense the water in the
ballast tanks froze. She was forced to
ascend to a high altitude to free her
self from the bllzzardly conditions.
Opinion Is expressed here this even
ing among air experts that the unusu
ally severe weather conditions may
postpone any attempts at a trans-At
lantic flight until better weather Is
more certain.
The extreme cold and heavy hail
storms severely taxed the strength of
those airmen who have participated In
the recent cruise around the Danish
coast, and last night's flight over the
Irish coast. The British airships. It is
declared, have behaved splendidly unde
the most trying conditions, and there
s every beliel that the K-J4 and sister
ships will be able to surpass the Zeppe
lin achievement of 100 hours in flight.
