That these men, working under dif-

smaller either in area or personnel.
In fact, there will be more than 50,000

and at least two large naval training
stations. These two sister stations
are Newport and Hampton Roads,
which, according to a recent state-
ment of Secretary Daniels, are to be
developed and expanded together with
