was ordering It. We knew we were
goitie to a hot plaee. and meant to
make It hotter sllll for the Spaniards:
but. umn, we would have sailed rlgM

The ships approached Manila bay

tenant Calkins, the navigator of the
Olympla, stood together all night, mak
lug their way through unknown waters,
gul ling their ship and those that fol

they had gained hundreds of miles
away. It was an act of great bou

such an entranoe. but Dewey hud work

this was the right way. and that was
enough. Tho other ships roitoweo,

At daybreak of Sunday, May 1, the

It has been s.iid by those who, In the

words. Hut the statement that he did
was contained In the first clear account
of the battle that reached this Coun
