Nearly 200 Warships, 96 Destroyers
Were Completed at Close of
Last Fiscal Year
NEW TYPES OF AIRCRAFT NOW
BEING DEVELOPED AND MADE
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Dec. 8.-Nearly 200
warships, including one sujerdread-
naught, and 96 destroyers, were com-
pleted for the American navy during
the fiscal year ended last June 30,
and more than 100 others, including 11
superdreadnaughts and six great bat-
tie cruisers, were building at that
time.
$119,000,000 Required Next Year
This is shown in the annual report
of Rear Admiral David W. Taylor,
chief of the Bureau of Construction
'and Repair, to Secretary Daniels,
made public today at° the Navy de-
partment. For continuing work on
the jhips building, Admiral Taylor
estimated that $119,000,000 would be
required during the fiscal year begin-
ning next June 30. This compares
with $59,000,000 last year and isthe
largest total ever proposed by* the
American navy in peace time for con-
tinuing construction. It is explained
by the fact that work on many of the
craft authorized in the 1916 build-
ing program was halted during the
war.

Department Constructing Aircraft
Admiral Taylor's report also dis-
closes that the Navy department is en-
gaved in developing and constructing
new types of aircraft. including great
rigid and semi-rigid air ships and sea-
planes similar to those which under-
took the trans-Atlantic flight last
year. Besides the dirigible which is
building in England for the United
States, the navy is building a dirigible
at home.
Airplanes and seaplanes building in-
clude four of the NC type for service
with the battle fleet, making a total of
eight of this class. In the four new
craft now building are embodied the
lessons learned from the trans-At-
lantic flight.
The navy also is building a small
number of interchangeable land air-
planes and seaplanes for the Marine
Corps and two types of torpedo car-
rying seaplanes, one to be of all metal
construction.
Designing Immense Seaulane
"To provide a large seaplane for
fleet use," says Admiral Taylor, "the
bureaus undertook the development of
a design for a seaplane larger than
any in existence, a 60-000-pound flying
boat. The design embodies several
new features, including a unique
power plantof nine Liberty engines
in three groups, each group being
geared to a single propeller."
With the delivery of the superdread-
naught Tennessee this year by the New
York navy yard, the first line battle-
ships with the Atlantic and Pacific
fleets were increased to 18. Besides
the destroyers added to the fleet last
year, other new ships completed in-
cluded 18 submarines, 45 Eagle boats,
and 10 mine sweepers. In addition a
number of naval tugs were delivered.
Other Craft Rutifllnx
Besides the 11 battleships and six
battle cruisers building, there are un-
der construction 10 scout cruisers. 71
destroyers, and 47 submarines. Some'
of the destroyers have been delivered
since last June 30. Only two of the 11
battleships building are expected to
be delivered next year. the Tennessee
and Maryland. The Colorado is to be
delivered in 1922 and the others in
1923 or later.
Comments on German Subs
Admiral Taylor devotes part of his
report to tests conducted with some of
the German submarines turned over
to the United States for experimental
purposes, and says on the basis of
these tests that "on the whole these
vessels could not be said to be su-
perior in design and capabilities to
corresponding vessels of the United
States navy."
"This is a matter of interest," the
admiral says, "in view of the exag-
gerated ideas of the German subma-
rine prevalent during the war, when
they were still a mystery."
