One day in the second week of April. 1917. a passenger liner, hav
ing safely negotiated the U-boat perils on a voyage from New York, put
into an English port.
Among those who walked the gang plank, and landed on the dock
to run the gftuuntlet of officials and secret service men, was a fairly tall,
slim, trim figure with" wind-tanned face and grizzled beard, whose civil
ian garb could not wholly conceal a certain distinction.
And so the president decided that
it was the part of wisdom to . dis
cover discreetly the thought and
plan of the British admiralty, in
order that our co-operation might
be of a kind to deal the enemy the
hardest possible blow.
In March I got into communica
tion with the British admiralty
through Ambassador Walter H.
Page, and on . March 22, 1917, he
sent a message saying:
"Mr. Balfour (then first lord of
the admiralty) has shown me the
informal suggestion conveyed by the
Navy department regarding closer
relations and his reply."
Mr. Page said Mr. Balfour had
assured him the British govern
ment would 'fall in heartily with
any plan which the United States
should propose as soon as relations
could be established. Mr. Page
further said he had discussed the
matter with Mr. Bonar Law, the
prime minister; Admiral Jellicoe and
others and that all had assured him
of their cordial assent to any pro
posals the United States would be
likely to make.
Ready to Tell Secrets.
Mr. Page recommended that we
send a United States admiral to
London to whom the British ad
miralty would communicate all the
inside information as to British plans
and method of operation. All the
doors would he opened to him, he
said, and a sort of special staff as
signed to give him the results of
the whole naval work since the war
began. Many things, he thought,
which could not be committed safe
ly to writing could be disclosed in
The president directed that word
should be conveyed at once to Am
bassador Page of the purpose of the
United States to avail itself of this
The ship's passenger list showed
the name, among others, of "Mr.
S. V. Davidson." By this name
the gentleman had been known to
his traveling companions. It may
be questioned if any of them had
suspected that he was other than an
American citizen, engaged in some
matter of urgent private business,
which induced him to run risks at
a time when nobody was sea voy
aging who lacked the compelling
motive of duty or necessity. .
Sims Alias Davidson.
Mr. Davidson . went through the
routine procedure, and finally
emerged from the grip of official
dom, to take train for London. ..
Within 24 hours after his arrival
he was closeted in the British cap
ital with the highest authorities in
the British admiralty.'
Then his disguise was cast aside,
and he appeared in his proper per
son as Rear Admiral W. S. Sims
of the United States. navy.
When Admiral Sims reached Lon
don we were already in the war,
The news of action on the part of
the congress reached him while he
was still at sea. He had left, under
orders in anticipation of the impend
ing decision, and the story of how
we came to send him is one of the
most interesting chapters in the
earlier stages of our participation.1
When the diplomatic break had
been made with Germany . it was
evident that no long period could
intervene before we would find it
necessary to assume the role of a
belligerent. The president was anx
ious that in such event the. navy
should be ready to do its part with
out a moment's delay. In every de
tail of preparation within the power
of the secretary of the navy's de
partment, and the officers of the
navy, it naa Deen reaay ior wccks.
But it was essential mat mere
should be complete understanding
with the allied powers, and particu
larly with the naval authorities of
Great Britain, before its prepared
ness could be utilized effectively.
Thus .we.. planned to establish an
early liason with the British admir
alty, so that our Navy department
might be kept thoroughly informed
as to developments and contem
plated undertakings. The British
and French, naturally, had been
most secretive. While our neutrali-

and usualty got up mornings with a
bad taste in my mouth, feeling more
tired than when I went to bed.
"But Tanlac was just what I need

My appetite improved and it -just
looked like I never would get enough
to eat, and my digestion soon became
perfect. Now I feel better than I

ty continued they would not have
been justified in revealing any of
their secrets. Our naval attache in
London had sent us much informa
tionall, in fact, that the British
would permit any neutral nation to
obtain but until it was evident that
we were about to enter the war the
things of vital moment were guarded
Important Work at Home.
The original intention was to send
Admiral Henry B. Wilson, now
commander-in-chief of the Atlantic
fleet, and one of the most able and
resourceful officers in the American
navy. But this intention had to-be
abandoned at the last moment. ow
ing to the discovery of a perilous
situation nearer home which called
for his immediate service.
Admiral Wilson was at that time
commanding the U. S. S. Pennsyl
vania. When, following the break
in relations, we took a survey of
the situation, we realized that if we
went to war an imperative duty
would be the protection of our own
coastal waters from the operations
of enemy submarines.. Moreover, it
would be necessary to prevent, if
possible, the shipment of oil from
Mexican oil fields to European
countries. Oil was a vital necessity
for allied naval success, and there
was great "danger that the Mexican
f ' j - ' i
product might find its way into en
emy hands, , , .
So it was considered of primary
importance to organize' a patrol
force to guard our coasts and ship
ping, and to protect allied interests
in the sources of oil supply. No one
seemed better fitted for . this duty
than Admiral Wilson; hence it was
decided to assign him to this' task,
and to find someone elge to under
take the secret mission to London.
Admirable 'Sims was president of
the war college at that time, and
our second choice fell on him. - On
March 26 I telegraphed him to come
to Washington. He arrived on
March -28 and came to. the -Navy de
partment the same afternoon,
I opened the interview by telling
him in confidence, that it was our
belief the ' time .was .hear at; hand
when America would enter the war.
In such event, I said, we must pre
pare for the fullest measure of co
operation with the , British , navy. , I
commented on the fact that hitherto
our information "concerning the "al
lied plans and. methods of naval
warfare had been limited; that we
knew little or nothing of .what they
were doing to combat the U-boat.
I informed him. as to the com
munication we " had received from
Ambassador .Page . arid the an-

uounced readiness of the British ad
miralty to take us fully into its con,

prepared intelligently to offer- im
mediate and effective co-operation
when we entered the war. The pres
ident, I told him, had decided to act
on the proposal that' an American
admiral be senf to London to re
ceive the confidences of the British
admiralty and to keep us informed
on all matters of importance.
In Spite: of Guildhall Speech. .
And then I said to him:
"Admiral Sims, you have been
selected for this task."
In the course of the conversation
that followed I recalled the speech
that he had made some years before
at a banquet in the Guildhall, Lon
don. In that speech Admiral Sims
"If 'the time ever comes when the
British empire is seriously menaced
by an external enemy it is my opin
ion that you may coiint upon every

Referring to this utterance, I said
"You have, been selected tor this
mission, not because of . your Guild
hall speech, but in spite of it."
I added that he had been selected
because he had enjoyed intimate as
sociations with the British officers,
and it was to be expected that they
would the more readily repose confi
dence in him and . disclose their
secrets, and that, after we entered
the war, their co-operation would be
I reminded him, however, that the
United States was still neutral, and
that until congress should declare
war his mission must be a secret and
Must Bottle Up U-Boats.
Finally I told him that there were
two things on the mind of the presi-
dent, which he ' would like to have
urged upon the consideration of the
British, admiralty. These thjngs arose
out of the belief, based upon such
information as we had been able to
obtain from our naval attache and
from. Ambassador Page, that the sub
marine menace was more serious
than the allies were willing to admit,
and that no adequate means had yet
been found for dealing with this-peril.-
1. That every effort- should be
made to prevent the U-boats getting
into the Atlantic; that they should
be bottled up in their own ports-, and
that soriie he'roic method should be
devised to prevent their, ingress and
egress. ... .... , .
2. That all ships ought, to be con
voyed. I told him that the president
had been of this opinion. for a long,
time, but that there was a division of
opinion on the matter among naval
officers of influence in the . depart
ment, most of whom seemed to agree
with the British admiralty, which was
unfriendly to the idea. , But the pres
ident, I assured, him, felt the British
objections were- unsound,- and was
firmly convinced the only real pro
tection for shipping lay, in convoy
ing. - -,. .

Admiral Sims seemed pleased
with his mission. As already inti
mated, he reached Londou on April
10, reported- at once to Ambassador
Page and was immediately ;tiiere
aftcr admitted to, the confidence of
the British admiralty. Thus began
that splendid co-operation which
was carried out with the .utmost cor
diality between thd navies of -the
United States and Great', Britain-until
the day when the two navies,
side by side, received the surrender
of the. mighty German fleet.
About the "British Chestnuts."
This story might end here were it
not that the, reader is likely to ask,
"What about the sensational state:
ment in the letter to Admiral Sims,
that before he sailed he was given
the following explicit admonition:
'Don't let the British pull the wool
over your eyes. It is none of our
business "pulling their chestnuts Out
of the fire. We would as soon fight
the British as the Germans."
I heard of this first in January,
1920, when the letter of Admiral
Sims was written. He later said
the remark was made by Admiral
Benson, who, lie said, repeated - it,
or words to like effect, in Paris.
In his testimony under oath, Ad
miral Sims showed that he at
tached little significance to it. Ht
said: "I will admit that I had com
pletely forgotten the incident. It
was recalled to my mind by a mem
ber of my staff who was present
and who heard it. 1 think that the
reason I did not remember that dis
tinctly was because I regarded it as.
a personal idiosyncracy of the ad
miral. ' I had known the general
opinion that he was intensely anti
British, but it did not affect me par
ticularly." Benson a Loyal . Fighter. ,.
Of Admiral Benson and his work,
Admiral Sims said: -"I have 'alwayj
had the best possible personal rela
tions with Admiral Benson. I re
gard him as an. upstanding and
honest man, who has exceedingly
strong convictions and who is very
firm in adhering to those convic
tions. I believe everything he has
done, during the Avar has been done
conscientiously and to get along
with the war."
In view of this statement and the
known fact that Admiral Benson
and everybody else in the navy
earnestly co-operated with the Brit
ish, and that Admiral Benson played
a large part in- perfecting this- co
operation before Admiral Sims
reached London. . I think there is
no occasion for any further allusion
to this remark. It went up like .a
rocket. It came down like a stick.

The familiar cry has hat? a real meaning under the police administration of
J. Dean Ringer. . .
The Ringer administration has saved the owners of Ford automobiles in
Omaha $80,000 a year in insurance premiums; it has saved automobile owners
at large $180,000. .
Read what "The Policeman's News" has to say of the record:
"In 1917 the risk on automobiles in Omaha became so great that the Sun Insur
ance Co. of London, one of the biggest of them all, withdrew entirely from the Omaha
field. 'Too risky,' its agents said.
"In 1920 the Sun came back to Omaha and is now placing all the policies it can.
"In the year 1920 the Omaha Police Department saved the owners of Ford ma
chines in this city $80,000 in insurance premiums; in the same time the police depart
ment saved owners of all makes of automobiles in this city more than $180,000 in
"There are 27,000 Ford automobiles in Omaha. An average reduction of $3
per machine has been made in insurance rates on Fords.
"Marshall Eberstein was made chief of police in October, 1918. During 1918 the
net loss from thefts was 360, with the thefts totalling 1,056 cars. In 1920 the total
thefts were 626; recovered cars, 609; net loss, 127."
Hie commercial burglary insurance rate in Omaha is $40 per $1,000. In .
Kansas City and St Louis it is $60 per $1,000. That means that the chance of
burglary in Omaha is just two-thirds as great as in St. Louis or Kansas City. ';
This is the record of J. Dean' Ringer as city commissioner in charge of the ,
