The Navy is at present in urgent need of binoculars, spy-glasses and telescopes for use against submarines. Heretofore the United States has been obliged to rely almost entirely upon foreign countries for its supply of such articles. These channels are now closed, and it has become necessary to appeal to the patriotism of private owners to furnish "eyes for the Navy."
All articles should be securely tagged giving the name and address of the donor, and forwarded by mail or express to the Hon. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, care of Naval Observatory, Washington, D. C.
