AF least eight modem battleships were in the Baltic and Black Seas and four battle cruisers were under construction at points in the Gulf of Finland when the Russian collapse came. Increase Strength It is estimated that it Germany has obtained all the Russian war craft and succeeded In putting them into flghting condition, she has been able to increase the glrength of her high seas fleet by 25 per cent. Admiral Benson was quite positive, however, of the ability of the allied fleets to deal with the enemy shcSuld he venture out. Building Ships All officials here are c'onvinced that Germany has been building capital ships continuously since the outbreak of the war. They are unable to estimate, however, what number of additional craft may have been built. In regard to the submarine construction in Germany, Admiral Benson said there was no definite information here. Reports ranged, he said, from flve a day to three a month. The a'dmiral was not disposed to question, however, the recent statement of Sir Eric Geddes, flrst lord of -the British admiralty, that more submarines were being sunk than Germany could replace.

"During the summer there are better possibilities for the .employment of aircraft in cpnvoying ships. Airplanes are not only useful in beating off attacks but the tact ot their presei^ce with the convoys keeps th,e. German submarines from breaking to the surface, for fear of destruction from the sky, thus preventing many attempts to torpedo ships which would be made were there no aerial convoy. Examination shows that the output of new shipping has greatly Increased."
