A defense of the naval bases and
ports with armaments able to with:
stand the most powerful navies of
the world "should be pushed to com-i
pletion with the greatest speed," Ma-j
Jor General Landing H. Beach, chief
of engineers, saad in his annual re
port today to Secretary of War Ba-j
Ver. .j
Proper provision has not yet been
made for - efficient seacoast . defense
of important strategic areas arid naval
bases because of a lack of 16-inch guns
and" howitzers, according to Beach, who
recommended that no additional arma
ment of less 'caliber and power be in-
. stalled at points whose defense "Is abso
lutely vital." "
, Beach also made recommendations for
a deep waterway between Chesapeake
bay and Delaware bay, thence to New
York harbor and Long Island sound, as
a "means of defense of immense valued
."Thla Ulterior "waterway would make
.If practfcally Impossible for the coim
bined hostile fleets of any two of the
leading powers of the world to blockade
our navy 'successfully, and, therefore
would have the effect of multiplying the
power of our fleet." said- Beach.
"It is an accepted fact that our shores
can never he invaded in force unless out
own navy is either -destroyed or ef
fectively blockaded' within our coast

fair treatment ; so is the boss. Strikes
and boycotts must cease. ; Employers
who have the closed shop have very
little to say about the conduct of their
own business. Labor must be educated
that the open shop is the- best way to
promote friendly relation between it
and the employer."

that stocks are being reduced and
that when the public starts buying

not be any reserve stocks left. A great
