  • Lest They Forget
    By Admiral W. V. Pratt, U. S. Navy

    Let there be understanding that wisdom and tolerance may prevail

  • Two Colleges
    By Lieutenant Commander Melvin F. Talbot (S. C.), U. S. Navy

    Veritas. One all-inclusive word inscribed on the shield of Harvard. And here at my second school, the Naval War College, other students, equally earnest, seek not an abstract truth, but the knowledge that gives power to rule the seas...

  • The Confederate Blockade Runners
    By Lieutenant Commander Paul Hendren, U. S. Navy

    The story of the running of the blockade into and out of the ports of the Confederacy during the Civil War is a highly colorful one. The history of the exploits of the vessels which engaged in the hazardous business of running the blockade is...

    By Lieutenant Commander T. G. W. Settle, U. S. Navy

    The world “race” almost invariably implies time—covering some distance or doing something in a certain time. Balloon races, however, are different. They are for distance—straight line (great circle) distance between...

    By Major Edwin N. McClellan, U. S. Marine Corps

    So an attorney general once ran the Navy Department as acting secre­tary of the navy!” exclaimed Com­mander X to Major B. Five of us sat eating luncheon at one of those white porcelain- topped, oblong tables in the Navy Build...

  • Shooting The Catapult
    By Lieutenant (J. G.) H. B. Miller, U. S. Navy

    The catapulting of planes in the fleet is such a commonplace even that one seldom stops to realize the steps that have gone towards making such a maneuver possible. Not so in the commercial world. The arrival in New York of a mail...

  • Aerology And Chemical Warfare
    By Lieutenant Thomas J. Raftery, U. S. Navy

    A field where aerology has a practical application, but in which no navy aerologist has yet ventured, is chemical warfare. Nature has so many tricks and idiosyncrasies in her control of the movement of air masses and air currents that a...
