"Why don't you send Admiral Mayo and the powerful Atlantic fleet
into the war zone?" men asked me during the war statesmen, naval offi
cers, civilians.
Men still ask me why I didn't send Mayo and his dreadnaughts to the
North sea.
Probably the man who was most interested in the answer to this ques
tion was Admiral Mayo himself.
He wanted to go. He wanted a chance to meet the Germans. He
could think of all. sorts of arguments why he should be allowed to take
his fleet and lie in wait for the enemy somewhere in the North sea, and
every time he thought of a new one, he offered it
question upon which
division in and out of
It was a

the navy.
My own first inclination was to
dispatch our whole fleet, except a
few vessels necessary for coast pa
trol to waters where the chance for
a fight was more promising than on
this side of the ocean.
Blocked by Logistics.
Cut against this inclination, and
in answer to Admiral Mayo's per
suasion arose a very definite and
substantial argument
The naval and military readers
will understand at once what I
mean and the force of the argu
ment. Possibly my civilian readers
may be a little puzzled. It is rea
sonable enough to suppose that the
word "logistics" refers to logic, and
so to some well-considered strategy
or tactics. Commonly it does have
reference to logic, and. in its par
ticular use by naval experts, to what
might be termed the logic of hard
Before defining it further, and
showing its application to the prob
lems we are considering let me tell
a little story suggested to me by
this mention of logic.
A prominent and influential man
was one dav trying to persuade
President Wilson that a certain
proposition he had made was right
and wise and even imperative. When
lie found that he was failing he
summed up his effort in the em
phatic declaration:
"But. Mr. President it is
logic, the inexorable logic of
"Yes," said the president, '
would be all right except for
"What is that?" asked the man
in deadly earnest. His sense of
humor was unhappily deficient.
The president smiled, and then
said quietly, but conclusively:
;'There is no such thing as logic."
And the president was right in
the particular instance under dis
cussion. There must be no such
thing as logic if logic is to be an
obstacle to doing the big and brave
and daring thing in a time of emer
gency, or to doing ''the common
sense, practical thing.
Logistics Explained.
But there are hard facts, and
these hard facts constituted the log
istics ot the navy sucn lacis as
nad to do with oil and coal and
beef and bread and supplies of every
kind. '
An army "goes on its belly, a
navy on its logistics. They both
mean the same thing. The navy
term is more elegant, if less under
standable. In 1917 we did send over a di
vision of powerful battleships under
command of Admiral Rodman,
which served with the British grand
fleet to the end of the war and the
surrender of the German fleet. Their
splendid service won the admiration
of their British comrades, but these
battleships were coal burners and
did not interfere with logistics as
the sending of the entire fleet would
have done.
Our main reason, then, for refrain
ing from sending the whole of the
Atlantic fleet to the North sea was
because the allied powers and the
operating department of the Ameri
can navy agreed that the utilization
of the tonnage it would require in
order to keep it supplied with oil
and coal and food was not justified
by any chance there might be for a
sudden sally of the German fleet. It
was very difficult to supply fuel oil
enough for the British fleet. Our
destroyers and our biggest battle
ships were oil burners. To send
them over would have added to the
fuel problem.
Tonnage the Great Need.
Tonnage was in those critical
days desperately needed for the
transportation of troops and of sup
plies to sustain and munition the
troops. Everytliing else that could
be spared had to be sacrificed to
this supreme need. The allied armies
and navies were dependent upon
provisions which we must send. To
have sent any considerable part of
the Atlantic fleet overseas would
have meant depleting the scant
enough tonnage available for the
forces already in the war zone. This,
it was thought, Avould be unwise.
Logistics kept the fleet at home
during the first months of the war,
but there was another thought in
mind also when it was suggested
that we send over all our vessels.
This was no selfish consideration. It
grew out of the feeling that if
through any accident in fog or
storm German battleships or battle
cruisers should evade the vigilance
of the British fleet and make their
way into the Atlantic the only force
the world could look to for protec
tion was our Atlantic fleet.
If the Germans had possessed the
nerve and daring to make a dash for
the open sea; if tbey had preferred
to risk destruction and death rather
than accept the humiliation of sur
render, I think it is quite possible
that enough of their fast battle
cruisers could have broken through
to play havoc before they were over
hauled and sunk. In such event the
presence of the Atlantic fleet, unen
gaged and ready for instant action,
would have been the hope and com
fort of our allies and the proof of
our good judgment.
Germans Lacking in Audacity.
After our troops began crossing

municipal coal yard is the chief issue
in the Lincoln city campaign which
ends tomorrow.
Charles W. Bryan, brother of the
famous William Jennings Bryan, and

in addition to five others. The city
commissioners choose their mayor as
is done in Omaha.

the Atlantic in large numbers there
was always the risk that German
cruisers, would appear suddenly, at
tacking and sinking transports.
Looking back now I find it difficult
to believe that the Germans did not
attempt to do this thing. Had they
succeeded in even one or two cases
it would have meant much to them.
They lacked the audacity.
As things obviously approached a
climax and victory hung in the bal
ance in 1918, I felt the possibility of
a bold venture by the German navy
was so great that it must be con
sidered most seriously. It seemed
to me that the Germans were likely
to make one splendid dash in a risk
everything effort to win the war.
I dispatched a division of dread
naughts overseas under the com
mand of Admiral T. S. Rodgers,
with specific instductions to be vigi
lant fo rthe appearance of any pos
sible German cruiser, and, at all haz
ards, to give protection to the Amer
ican troop transports.
The British fleet and Admiral Rod
man's division were based on Scapa
Might Have Sunk Thousands.
If the miracle of escape had hap
pened, one German raider, free, and
in the vicinity of Brest, could have
sunk troopships with thousands of
men before it could have been sunk,
unless powerful dreadnaughts stood
between the transports and danger.
So Admiral Rodgers' division was
based on Bantry bay, in a position to
If we had failed to take this pre
caution and an enemy cruiser had
eluded the blockade, what would
l.ave been my condemnation? Had
we through such a neglect or error
of judgment lost the lives of any of
cur men I could not have forgiven
myself, and the country would not
l.'ave forgiven me.
But the Germans'' were too prudent
to make this venture. Under like cir
cumstances, I believe, sooner than
make possible an ignominious slir
itndcr, such as Ave witnessed at
Scapa Flow, the men of the Amer
ican navy or the British navy would
have died in the resolve to at least
go down in the last dash against the
Question of Rank.
There was a minor difficulty
which was involved in the proposal
to send Admiral Mayo and the At
lantic fleet to the North sea. 1
mention it only to assert emphat
ically that if considerations of naval
strategy, considerations affecting
the coiumon interests, had made it
wise to send Mayo and his ships,
this particular difficulty would have
been brushed aside as a man flicks
the ash from his cigar.
It lay in the question which naval
officers and others raised as to
whether Admiral Mayo, being sen
tor in command, would displace Ad
miral Beatty, commander-in-chief of
the British ,grarid fleet, or be sub
ject to his direction.
It was a question of rank which
in peace maneuvers would have
been a question of much importance,
but in the world's hour of agony
and need it mattered far less than,
other things.
Mayo Eager to Go.
At least so thought Admiral
Mayo, whose only wish was to get
into the war zone and to be where
the biggest chance lay for a big
fight. He would have gone gladly
conceding the ranking position to
the officer who commanded the
largest fleet and who .was most fa
miliar with the fighting ground the
North sea.
It is one of my regrets that
Mayo and Beatty and Rodman did
not get the chance to go after the
Germans together. I have an idea
that had they been turned loose and
told to "go get 'em" they would
have found a way.
