To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

It may interest some of your readers of Hudson Maxim's "Defenseless America" to look at a chart (p. 169) showing the strength of the various navies. In this chart the "28" German "dreadnaughts" are shown in frowning black with an addition for "battle-cruisers." The scientific man is playing an accordion, for he stretches out the "28" beyond their strength. The German "dreadnaughts" are numbered from 1 to 28 and include the battle-cruisers, one of which is the much talked of "Goeben," now leading a dissolute life as a Turkish cruiser. Six of the "28" are building. Nine of the "28" have nothing larger than 11-inch guns. So why make the diagram so black? THOMAS G. FROTHINGHAM.
