71 and with 40 years of public life be hind him Swanson is running Uncle Sams navy and drawing much com mendation for his work The courtly dignified Virginian unlike his predecessor Secretary Adams is not a seagoing man He likes to sail and be on the wa ter hut he wants someone else to do the piloting But in every other respect he Is seagoing He knows the needs of the navy and what is perhaps more
