High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - December 16, 1925, High Point, North Carolina - to High Point. N. C. Thursday evening december 17. 1925 of sciences asks i s Appeal to a number prominent men for help of Washington Poe. It apr hear Admiral c. C Bloch chief of the Navy Bureau of ordnance Dis closed today that the anti aircraft practice conducted Las july by Lite dirigible Shenandoah and the battleship Texas in Tangier sound Chesapeake Bay was primarily to test a new Type of target while the firing at the target was Only incidental. The Shenandoah towed the target at that time and the understanding generally was that the efficiency of the anti aircraft guns on the Texas was the object primarily to be tested. It later was said that the number of hits made was most satisfactory. Discussing the tests in his annual report. Admiral Bloch said a one of the great difficulties encountered in anti aircraft gunnery and training Lins been the Lack of a proper target. The towed target hitherto used has Bee n too Small to give a proper Point of aim at High altitudes and too Small to give a target Large enough to Register hits. Utilizing the naval aircraft factory the Bureau has been de for a real gift get a a Here a coat a a her Quot May be wife sweetheart sister or Mother but it make no difference a she Quot will appreciate an attractive coat for Christmas.

Daggers ladies shop eloping a target of Large size to be towed by heavier than air ships singly or in tandem. If a number of targets can be towed by a lighter than air ship it will be practicable to simulate Squadron attack and defense. The it. S. S. Texas and Shenandoah operated together during the week ending july 24, 1925. These operations were solely for the purpose of testing such targets their towing gear and their handling. They were in no sense gunnery exercises. Nor were they intended to be such. Although the Texas did fire a number of rounds with her anti aircraft guns at these new and larger targets with very Good re suits this was incidental to the test of the targets and target gear. From a material Point of View the tests were satisfactory and it appears that the expectations of the service for larger and better tar gets will be Admiral Bloch declared that a contrary to the reflected opinions of certain portions of the press the Bureau is of the firm opinion that our Navy afloat is in a highly efficient condition and that much Progress has been made during the i past fiscal year in gunnery a j a this is not to say a he added a that greater efficiency cannot be obtained by the construction of certain types of new ships permitted under the treaty for the limitation of armaments and by the substitution of new and improved material for the older material which is now on Board Many of the older the report took the position that Fleet aircraft a should be in and of the Navy and not of a separate a in the development and Supply of offensive and defensive apparatus a it said a not Only for surface and subsurface Craft but also for aircraft these arms have been found to be so interrelated that the Best results Are Only obtainable by close coordination and cooperation Between the various types of naval Craft. A it has been clearly determined that for the purpose of increasing the effective Range and increasing the accuracy of fire of major Caliper guns that the air plane is essential to combatant ships. Thus the air plane has become a part of the Long Range firing control system and is As much so As the director scope or the Range finder and til personnel. As such without co., sideling their other uses air planes must be on ships of the Fleet. This alone justifies and requires that the personnel and material belonging to such Fleet aircraft should be in and of the Navy and not of a separate service.

For the plane such As bombs fuses bomb sights guns torpedoes etc., has proceeded regularly and Progress has been made. Defensive weapons and apparatus have also been improved and i am optimistic enough to Hope and expect that notable advances will be made within the next few years. A at the close of the world War a lie Navy was just being equipped a Ith its first anti aircraft weapons. These being the first Ever produced in this country and having been produced in the stress of War naturally were susceptible to any improvements. However this material was on hand. It was expensive and was capable of enduring Many years so therefore no changes of unproven value were recommended. Research study experimentation and development were proceeded with and until it was certain that material advances could be made no request for funds were made. A the director of the budget and the last two congresses have assisted the Bureau and soon it will be possible to install for trial afloat a limited amount of new improved and efficient apparatus. While the present anti aircraft guns Are by no Means modern they Are not negligible. The records of the Navy department indicate that during the past year 16 battleships and two Light cruisers held 42 practices against aircraft targets towed by air planes. In 20 of these practices hits were made on the targets. While these practices were held under favourable conditions nevertheless they represent the Best reproduction of actual conditions that could be obtained. It is to be hoped that even this creditable performance will be much improved by recent developments. A with the development of automatic triangulation recording devices it will be possible to locate the Point of burst of anti aircraft projectiles thus enabling careful analyses to be made which will assist in gunnery training and Davis Wynne of Hamilton ont., the official soloist.
