for Two Thirty-Six Thousand
BIGGEST GUN AFLOAT FEATURE
WASHINGTON. Nor. it. TenU
tire plans are being considered.
Secretary Daniels said today, for
two 16, 000-ton battleships to bn In
cluded In the first year's part of the
five-year building program congress
will be asked to approve. There
are no warships to large afloat any
where In the world now
Part of the Increased displace
ment In the newest ships will be due
to changed hull construction to pro
vide additional torpedo defense
bulkheads. While " the -general
characteristics of the ships have not
been disclosed, it Is probable they
will have increased armament and

" Secretary DanleTa.has received no re
port aa yet on tha examination of private
bida received yeaterday 'for battleships
Noa. 43 and 44, all of which appeared to
be above tha limit fixed by conareaa. It
la underatood, . however, that a careful
analysis of the exceptions to advertised
specifications bears out tha Indication
that private builders will not attempt to
construct the hulls and machinery of the
ships within the 17.800.000 limit.
Market Swept Clean.
Neither ship ran be laid down before
next aummer. It la said, for lack of

that unless some arrangement could be
made with ateel plants to Insure prefer

might be asked to act. An emiargo on
exportation of steel until the govern

SHALL BOATS HOT
this i. View of United States in
Case of Ancona, Sunk by
POSITION ALREADY DEFINED
WASHINGTON, Nov. 18. While
the United States will wait for the
Austrian reply to Ambassador Pen
field's Inquiry concerning the circum
stances under which the Italian liner
Ancona was sunk, It was stated offi
cially today that the placing of Amer
ican citizens In small boats on the
high seas was not 'regarded as ac
cording them " a place of safety"
with the meaning of the term as used
In International law.
In Ita correspondence wltn Germany
over the Frve case the Amerlcsn gov
ernment expressed the ivlew that open
boats did not constitute a place of safety.
This was broadened today by an official
Interpretation to apply to all American
citliene whether traveling on belligerent
oskieutral ahlpa. ' .
Officials qualified their assertions some
what by stating that If a vessel was de
stroyed within a few miles of shore ltfe
boats would be regarded ss safe, but that
weather conditions and the opportunity
given for paesengers to transfer even
then waa pertinent.
From these Intimations It was believed
the American government would develop
the entire question of submarine warfare
further In correspondence with Austria
and that even though, as the Austrian
admiralty had declared, forty-five mln
utea was given for the passengers and
crew ot the Ancona to be transferred,
this waa not regarded aa affording Amer
ican citizens an opportunity to be saved.
The United States has Insisted through
out that the operations of the submarines
shall not Jeopardise the Uvea of American
citizens and notwithstanding the formal
denial from Vlonna that the Ancona was
shelled after It stopped and the fact that
the ship actually waa torpedoed while a
number of passengers still were aboard
Is regarded as the chief circumstance
upon which representations will be made.
Official Restart Received.
The first official report, alleging that
the submarine continued shelling the An
cona after It had halted, reached the
State department today In a consular dis
patch outlining an affidavit made by Dr.
Ceclle Greil, officially the only known
native American survivor of the tragedy.
Boats Are Used
For Prison Ships
(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
LONDON, Nov. 10. "From the point of
view of the shipping man. the whole hla
tory of tha war so far aa the transport
service la concerned is a wicked story of
Ignorance, Ineptitude and colossal waste,"
asserts the editor of Syren and Shipping,
the leading Journal of the shipping trade,
lie adda: J 'v.
"Costly and useful ships were used for
months as prison ehlpa. Super-ships, like
the Aqultanla, were employed on eeout
Ing missions, their magnificent passen
ger equipment gutted. Ships were allowed
to toad cargo or to book a full passenger
list and then owners were Informed that
the admiralty required these boats."
An Instance Is given of a 7.000-ton boat
which was all ready to sail with 900 pas
sengers when It waa taken over and sent
empty to the west coast of South Amer
ica, although It might have been loaded
with coal and realised a small fortune.
Another case Is given of a 6,000 ton boat
at Iluelve, about to load with a cargo
of Iron ore for England, which waa requl
tltloned suddenly and sent empty to the
Pacific, although there should have been
plenty of merchant ships available much
nearer the desired destination.
"How long," asks the Journal, "will
theae methods be tolerated T In the na
tional Intereat a committee of shipping
men should have been selected to or
ganise tha admiralty chartering."
