A Destroyer Leader for the U. S. Fleet
(See page 325, March, 1927, Proceedings and page 685, June, 1927, Proceedings)
Captain J. K. Taussig, U. S. Navy.— In the March issue of the Proceedings, Mr. Prendergast submitted a design for a destroyer leader with very able arguments in support of it. It was my intention immediately to comment on this most interesting paper, but ship duties prevented. In the June issue of the Proceedings there are published discussions on the Prendergast design by Dr. Mandl and by Mr. Brockholst Livingston. As these discussions refer to the design submitted by the writer in the June, 1926, number of the Proceedings, it would seem that comments on my part may not be out of place.
