GOETHALS LETS OUT
EUSTIS AND CLARK
Originators of Wooden Ship
Idea Are Dismissed from
Emergency fleet Cor
poration. Vsshington,x June 8. Major Gen
eral Goethals, general manager of the
Emergency Fleet corporation, today
dismissed F. A. Eustis el Boston, as
sistant general manager, and F. H.
Clark of New York, two engineer!,
who originated the wooden fleet idea.
Statements issned last night by
- Eustis and Clark virtually charging
General Goethals with blocking the
building of wooden ships by demand
ing an impossible form at contract,
" opened anew a controversy as to the
value of wooden vessels as cargo ves
sels. Chairman Desman of the shipping
board ia known to favor wooden
ships, but declared today he knew
nothing of the Enstis and Clark state
ments until after they were made and
that the board members bad not in
sisted on either steel or wooden ships.
Mr. Etutis and Mr. Clark are the
mining engineers who originated the
wooden shipbuilding plan adopted by
' the shipping board, and regarded by
General . Goethals as impracticable.
When the board formed the fleet cor-
poration and put General Goethals at
its head with fill 'powers to build
ships the two engineer were assigned
to. the corporation as the general's
After taking charge of the building
program General Goethals turned to
steel construction and limited the
wooden program to not more than
250 ships. In eighteen months. Mr.
Eustis and Mr. Clark contend the cor-
poration can build 2,000 wooden ships
within that time, without interfering
with steel building. (
