  • Prologue In Manchuria
    By Lieutenant Chester C. Wood, U. S. Navy

    Just about one year ago the world was shaken out of a gloomy perusal of its own ills by the Japanese coup in Manchuria. With dramatic suddenness a large area of rich and fertile territory had been virtually seized by the Japanese...

  • Some Psychologic Phases Of Discipline
    By Captain J. M. Ellicott, U. S. Navy (Retired)

    It has been my experience that if dis­cipline, even though severe, is of the stereotyped prescribed variety it fails to contribute to high efficiency or ship esprit. I did not begin my naval career with this conviction; in fact, I believed...

  • To The Shores Of Tripoli
    By Lieutenant (J.G.) E. M. Eller, U. S. Navy

    By Ensign H. G. Claudius, U. S. Naval Reserve

    In this solemn presence and on this day, my countrymen,...

  • Building An Effective Naval Reserve
    By Lieutenant Commander G. F. Forster, U. S. Naval Reserve

  • Determination Of Offshore Positions
    By Lieutenant Commander A. F. France, U. S. Navy

    Several years ago Commander (now Captain) G. L. Schuyler, U. S. Navy, published an article in the Naval Institute Proceedings on this subject. He derived a formula from which posi­tions at sea can be determined by a bear­ing and a sextant...

  • The Present Status Of Air Navigation
    By Lieutenant Commander P. V. H. Weems, U. S. Navy
