Because of the circumstances un-
der which she was lost, the Navy ex-
plained, it was hoped that the Japa-
nese submarine skipper who attacked
her did not realize the full extent of
his blow and thus the loss was not
made public for more than a month.
But the timing of the announce-
ment lent a somber note to Navy Day
to be celebrated tomorrow. President,
Roosevelt had written Secretary
Knox in this connection that the
American people "know that their
Navy is doing the biggest job any.
navy has ever been called upon to
do, and: doing the biggest job any
navy has. ever been called upon todadoigtsueby"Tels
do, and doing it superbly." The loss
of the Wasp unquestionably was
known to the Commander-in-Chief
before its public announcement but
in view of the over-all naval situa-
tion he found no occasion to alter
his general commendation.
The loss of the Wasp was an-
nounted in a communique which was
headed "South Pacific" but which
had nothing to report on the progress
of the fighting on Guadlacanal where
the defenders faced strong Japanese
forces bent on winning back the vital
airfield there and wiping out Amer-
ica's first offensive of the war. Pres-
ident Roosevelt called in his Naval
high coinmand for a conference late
in the day.
The Wasp was commanded by
Capt. Forrest P. Sherman, 45, of
Melrose, Mass., who was not a cas-
ualty so far as is known here.
The Wasp was launched April 4,
1939, at. the Bethlehem Steel Com-
pany, Quincy, Mass., and was com-
missioned at Boston April 25. 1940.
She .wae 688 feet long, had a beam of
80 feet, 8 inches, and normally car-
ried at least 72 planes.
Early this year the Wasp was used

in the Mediterranean.
The Wasp is the third aircraft car-
rier whose loss has been announced
by the Navy, since the start of the
war. The 33,000-ton Lexington was
sunk in May, in the Battle of the
Coral Sea, and the 19,500-ton York-
town was lost at the Battle of Mid-
way in July. That leaves, the fleet

900-ton Enterprise, the 33,000-ton
Saratoga, the Hornet of 20,000 tons
and the Ranger, about the same size
as the Wasp.
The carrier was the seventh ves-
sel in the Navy to bear the name
"Wasp," the first being an eight-gun
schooner of the Continental Navy
which was part of the first American
squadron to put to sea during the
