Seventy-Three Minutes in
About Twenty Months.
PATTERSON'S FLIGHTS RARE
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Nov. 15.
Captain Arthur S. Cowan, command
ing the army ,aviation school at San
Diego, Cal., was not in an army aero
plane) from-December 21, tMtrtw
April 24, 1915, at which time charges
oi incompetence and favoritism were
preferred against him, according to
army records made public here today.
From July 10, 1913, to the date of
the charges he was in the air seventy
three minutes, tut in the four months
following the filing of the charges he
spent fifteen hours and seventeen
r inutes as a passenger and two hours
and thirty-five minutes as a pilot In
an army machine.
Lloutenant 'William Lay Patterson spent
fifty-four minutes In the air as a pas
senger before he began to draw aviator's
pay. the records show, and made his first
fllcht as a pilot less than a month ago
and more than a year after ha began
drawing aviator's pay.
The court-martial of Lieutenant Colonel
Louis E. Goodler, Judge advocate of the
western department of the army, brought
out these statistics.' Colonel Goodler is
charged with having improperly- advised
junior officers at the school to prefer
charges against Captain Cowan. His de
fense is that he furnished only such infor
mation as would be expected from one
in his position, but the case has developed
into an airing of the general situation at
San Diego, where eight t'eutenants have
been killed since April 1, 1911 Whether
or not an officer Is entitled to aviator's
pay when ho is not regularly flying la a
disputed point. ,
The churges filed against Captain
Cowan were not pressed.

Regarding the Dardanelles, Mr. Church
ill declared that th admrial on the spot
aid they could not b taken with a rush,
but that the fortifications might be re
duced gradually by bombardment. Ad
miral Sir John Fisher, then first sea lord,
was' opposed to reduction , of Great
Britain's naval strength In horn waters,
but never criticised the method of attack
on th Dardanelles.
Mr. Churchill declared he did not re
ceive dear guidance from Admiral Fisher
before the expedition was decided upon or

In making bis promised statement Mr.
Churchill dealt with episodes during hU
tenure of office as head of th admiralty
rather than with hi resignation. He
raid his letter to Premier Asqutth gave
fully and truthfully the reasons which
led him to ask for a release from the

Th suggestion that he bad overruled
his naval advisers and kept th old -cruisers
at sea, thus 1 causing their de
struction by a German submarine last
year, was charaoterlsed by Mr. Churchill
aa untrue. - H said H was for A. J. Bal

ralty, to determine whether th papers
should be published. H himself had no
