The Clark plan Is to build a new
type of ship, one which can evade the
submarine. "The American motor ship"
is the name suggested. It would be a

Modern shipyards that are capable of

The 'cost would be relatively small.
A million tons. It Is estimated, could b
built for $100,000,000, which is equal to
oue-half of one day s expenditure for

the contemplated plan the submersible

high average of CO per cent of hits
an especially high average against a
swerving, dodging mark a total of

would be between 7,000 and 8,000 tons.
In comparison a U boat which has
sunk one 80,000 ton ship may now have
fourteen torpedoes left with which to
pile up a total conceivably of 100,000
But this Is not the only point at
which jho effectiveness of the U boat
would be reduced. Tho motor ship
would bo essentially one of low visibil
