The program was highly instructive as well as en- tertaining and afforded a real oppor- tunity to view the workings of this big: plant. Throughout the day from the time tha gates opened for visitors at 10- o'clock this morning, the people poured into the yard and the majority of them spent considerable time in looking over the points of interest, many remaining throughout the day. All were heartily welcomed and ev- ery officer and enlisted man and the civilian attaches from Rear Admiral W. C. Watts, TJ3N, the' commandant, down, saw to It that all wore mads to feel that they were welcome and that every visitor was giver, an opportunity to see everything possible of interest throughout the reservation. Guides were stationed at all of the various buildings and shops to escort the visitors a.nd explain matters of I interest. Among the chief attractions I were the big work shops, the hospital and the Peace Conference Building-. At the peace building there was a steady stream of visitors all anxious to see where the trea'.y of peace be- tween Japan and Russia was signed in 1905. In this building were al.so seen relics of the USS Maine which a j the Marine Barracks. Moving pictures on naval topics 1 were shown continuously in the Audi-, torium from 2 until 5 o'clock. For those interested in athletics there was a football game this after- noon between the Marine team and tha i'rtohman B team from the Uni- versity of New Hampshire. As last year one of tha features that drew a large number was the presence In the enclosure near the Marine Barracks of the grand old horse. Old Tom.

On ths second floor of the electrical shop there was an exhibit of various electrical appliances from the complicated switch boards in use on the submarines to the simplest fuse. This exhibit included various types of light sockets and shades, all manufac- tured at the local yard, switches, fuses, lanterns and hundreds of other large and small parts which go into making of the more complex units. This exhibit is one of the most com- plete exhibits of its kind ever assembled in this country. In fact, it has been judged so good tliat a request for a similar exhibit or one like it has been made for use at the coining Chicago j World's Fair. A trip to the submarine sheds to see the U. S. S.
