  • Keeping the United States Neutral
    By Rear Admiral W. W. Phelps, U. S. N.avy (Retired)

    In recent months a number of articles have appeared in American periodicals on the subject of a new neutral policy for the United States. Most of these articles are in the same vein, and nearly all of them make suggestions which should not go...

  • The Freedom of the Seas
    By Captain G. J. Meyers, U. S. Navy

    From an examination of many authors on the subject, we can find agreement upon one thing that "freedom of the seas" does not mean and two things it does mean.

  • America in the International Carrying Trade
    By Alfred H. Haag, Director, Department of International Shipping, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University

    World shipping, admittedly, is in a deplorable state. Vessel tonnage is far in excess of world trade requirements. Is the United States to blame for this condition? Do American ships get an equitable share of the carrying trade?

    Ships...

  • Choose Peace or War
    By Lieutenant William N. Thornton, U. S. Navy

    *This article was submitted in the Prize-Essay Contest, 1934.

    We may choose peace or war. The choice lies with us—with you and with the man in the street, who, it is probable, seldom consciously and of his own volition, desires war....

  • The Promotion of Good Will for the Navy
    By Lieutenant George W. Akers, U. S. Naval Reserve

    There is an old advertising slogan that says, ‘‘to the man who has never heard of you, you do not exist.” Certainly there can’t be many citizens of this country that have never heard of the Navy, but just as certainly...

  • The Capture of the U-58
    By Lieutenant Commander R. B. Carney, U. S. Navy

    Ersatz-Fanning does not as yet appear on the list of ships building. That fact may have no bearing on the security of the nation, and possibly is of little interest to officers and men who did not serve at Queenstown during 1917 and 1918...

  • The United States and Russia in World Equilibrium
    By Lieutenant Commander S. F. Bryant, U. S. Navy (Retired)

    Editor’s Note.—This article was submitted in the Prize-Essay Contest, 1934.

    …the world's peace may come to depend upon a Russo-American rapprochement.—London Economist, October...

  • Japan's Drive for World Trade
    By Captain Dudley W. Knox, U. S. Navy (Retired)

    Japan’s trade war with Great Britain certainly lessens the chance of that supposedly inevitable American-Japanese war, about which we have heard so much talk during the past decade. This is especially true because the new commercial...
