Admiral Rodman's Reasons for Not
Keeping German War Warships
ships Warships Afloat
Washington, Jan. 4. Destruction
of all capital ships of the German
navy surrendered to the Allies was
recommended yesterday by Rear Rear-Admiral
Admiral Rear-Admiral Rodman, who commanded the
American fleet in the North sea dur during
ing during the war.
Admiral Rodman declared the ships
would not bes needed; that they are of
different types than those of the Al Allies
lies Allies and that it would be a waste of
money to pay to maintain them.
During the war the combined Brit British
ish British and American fleets have had such
a predominating superiority over the
German fleet that it did not come out
and fight, Admiral Rodman said.
"If that supremacy could be main maintained

existence what would be the object
in adding the German ships to "our
forces when the danger of their at attacking
tacking attacking us has been removed.
"The expenses of maintaining the
ships would be enormous. The types
are entirely different from those, of
the British and American fleet. They
are equipped with different guns and
use a different kind of ammunition.
The expense of making them corres-,

protection. By the time the Germans

largest fleet, these ships would have
become obsolete and have to be
thrown away anyhow."
Admiral Rodman said the ships
should be taken out in the North Sea
and sunk '"so deep that they never
could be found again,' 'adding that if
the Allies kept them they would soon
find, that they "have annexed a herd
of white elephants."
The admiral thought that all the
surrendered vessels except the cap capital
ital capital ships should, be kept.
"It would be foolish to destroy the
submarines, destroyers and light
cruisers," -he said, "and they will be
very useful for years to come. My
belief is that anything worth while
in the German navy should be kept
but tha everything that can be dis dispensed
pensed dispensed with should be discarded."
EXPENSIVE TO OCALA
That Blitchtoh road is costing the
merchants of Ocala a good deal of
money. Thousands of pounds of
meat that have before come to the
Ocala cold storage are going to Wil Wil-listori,
listori, Wil-listori, and people go W Williston,
Micanopy and even Gainesville to buy
goods in preference to trying to
tackle the horrible quagmires they
would have to pull thru to come to
their county seat. There is no sense
in letting the roa.d remain in such a
condition. It runs over an easy
grade, compared vith roads in many
other places, and any engineer of ord ordinary
inary ordinary skill would make it passable.
That road is the sorest spot in the
county. It will eventually cause a
corner of the county to be cut off if it
is not made and kept passable.

that they have understood to the very
fullest extent their duty to their

and who have done such good work
in helping Miami to put over the
things the government has asked this
community to put over.
It will be remembered that Sena Senator
tor Senator Trammell of this state has intro introduced
duced introduced an amendment to one of the
great financial measures now before
Congress, which, if it is incorporated
into law, will provide for one month's
additional payment for all soldiers in
The Shafer plan goes farther than
that, and advocates the payment of
twelve months' extra pay for all reg regulars
ulars regulars and reserves, whether they
went abroad or not. It is stated that
the plan will cost somewhere in the
neighborhood of three billion dollars
tc carry out, but it is pointed out
that if the war had continued for a
year or two longer the country would
have been compelled-to pay out many
times three billion dollars.
It is also pointed out that very
many of the men. hundreds of thou thousands
sands thousands of them, left good paying posi positions

Sam at thirty dollars a month, and

hundred and sixty dollars to each
man will not begin to make up the
money loss incurred by him in the dis discharge

If this plan is laid before the Am American
erican American people, and there seems to be
an organization for that purpose,
there is little doubt that the propo proposition
sition proposition will prove acceptable to them.
There is no desire on the part of the
people to stint their money when it
comes to domer justice to the soldiers
land sailors of the United States.
When we consider that the United
States government has paid pensions
for over fifty years to the veterans of
the civil war,, a large number of
whom have received several thou thousands
sands thousands of dollars apiece, there does
not appear anything unreasonable in
the Shafer plan. At any rate, it is
not a piker plan like the Trammell
There is a class of republicans, evi evidently,
dently, evidently, the old, hidebound, high pro.
tection crowd, which does not stop at
slandering not only the administra
tion but the entire country and its
army and navy, in the attempt to
gain partisan advantage. This class
seeks to criticise the proposed league
of nations as its entering wedge. To
begin with, it reminds America that
American help was not absolutely
necessary in winning the war. The
Allies, so it says, had resources un un-revealed,
revealed, un-revealed, and would have won any
how. Under a hypocritical compli
ment to tKe British navy, it artfully
shoots a dart calculated to revive the
ancient dislike of America 'for Brit
ain. Then it says that as the Allies
fought most of the battles and really
won the victory, they will dictate the
terms and if America objects will
politely but decidedly set her objec objections
tions objections aside. The great preponderance
of the British navy, aided by the nav navies
ies navies of France and Italy is alluded to
significantly, to show Americans their
helplessness. An attempt to revive
the bogey of Japan is made. The
Pacific, we are told, will be a Japan
ese as the Atlantic will be a British
lake. If a league of nations is .form
ed, so this class gravely informs us,
our big nation will be allowed in it
only on the same footing as Portugal
and Spam- an argument that con
futes itself. Our only safe policy
and this is what the argument leads
up to is to retire to our own shores,
erect a Chinese wall tariff, build a
big navy and -subsidize a merchant
marine until it attains huge propor
tions. We have just read an article
to the foregoing effect in a leading
republican paper of national reputa
tion. We -don't think it could have
pleased a pro-German any more if
Bernstorff or Dernberg had written it.
We don't think that 'America will
ever build up a vast merchant ma marine.
rine. marine. The reason is easy to see
while our young men like the sea for
adventure or sport, and will volunteer
into the navy by the tens of thousands
when a war is on, few of them, com
paratively speaking, care to make
seafaring a life business. The reason
is obvious. It's too much work for
the money it pays. The average
young American can make a better
living or less work ashore. Our re
publican politicians can see no help
for this except to subsidize ships, so
that high wages can be offered. It is
our opinion, that it is much better to
let the British and Norwegians carry
the freight at a lower rate than fine
our own people in order that their
own ships may carry it. It is better
business and better principle. It
might be better sense than either to
change the shipping laws so that our
ships, officered by Americans, could
be manned by Chinese or Japanese,
but that the labor unions say Con Congress
gress Congress may not do. So, it's the Star's
Life prints a picture of the boys
coming back from Europe, and Hearst,
the pro-Germans, the profiteers and
the pacifists, all running like so many
rats for their holes. This is a sight
we should like to see, but we don't
see any use in waiting for the boys.
The cleanup should be made before
