NAVAL OFFICER'S REPORT
NAVY'S PREPAREDNES8 FOR WAR
WOULD BE JEOPARDIZED
SAYS THE BOARD.
Telle of the Recent Teete of the High
Exploeive Shell Which Hae Been
Urged as a Substitute.
Washington. ? Secretary Daniels
sent to the house a report from a spe
cial board of naval officers expressing
the opinion that the navy's prepared
ness for war would be Jeopardized by
the Hubson amendment to the naval
appropriation bill forbidding the pur
chase of 12 or 11-inch armor-piercing
shells unless it is demonstrated that
they can pierce 10-inch armor at 12,
This amendment was adopted by
the house several days ago. but prob
ably will be voted on again when the
bill is advanced to the point of final
The house spent all day on the
measure and remained in session until
late at night, most of the debate cen
terings on the provision to abolish the
so-called "plucking board."
In its report on the Hobson amend
ment the special board headed by
Rear Admiral Flske said:
"The board is of the opinion that
such a provision would Jeopardize the
readiness of the navy for lfar. We
believe that our armor piercing shells
are as good as can be made in the
present state of the metalurgical art."
Mr. Daniels also submitted a report
of the hoard on recent tests of a high
explosive shell which has been urged
as a substitute for the ajqjnor-pierclng
projectile. It follows:
"The board on torpedo shells has
the honor to report that in its opin
ion the experiments held with the
Mham shell on January 27 were not
conclusive, and fell far short of
demonstrating that the Isham shell,
can be considered an effective weap
on of naval warfare. All the shells
ricocheted that fefll at a distance of
8,000 yards or less. Out of seven
fuses only two operated correctly and
the shell being filled with black pow
der only_ no proof was given that
if high explosive had been in the
shell, it could have detonated by safe
means. The experiments, however,
are to be continued."

the arrest at a local hotel of a man
who gave his name as Werner von
