J / , Page 6 THE BATTALION Thursday, May 31, 1951 Italian Navy Is Small 'But Very Well Organized Taranto, Italy—— It taJkes about 30 minutes for the whole Italian Navy to pass in review— and that is steaming- along at a pretty fair rate. Because the pre-war fleet with which Mussolini tried to make the Mediterranean once more “M are Nostrum,” (Our Sea) has dwin dled from sixth biggest navy in the world down to 36 ships. That includes everything down to the vest-pocket-size motor tor pedo boats with six-man crews. It also includes three clean-lined former United States destroyer es corts just turned over to Italy un der the aims aid program. But American naval observers here are not too discouraged over prospects for that pin-sized fleet, now a part of the Atlantic Pact force of western defense. Well Organized The latest full fleet review here was described by these high offi cers as “a well-organized show,” and they said that although Italy still lacked modern ships, she could show “a strong and well-trained naval personnel ready to man a bigger fleet as fast as it can be formed.” That can start now—-after five years. The Peace Treaty did not allow Italy any new naval con struction until 1950. It takes time to build warships. And even more than that, it takes money. But Italy has begun a naval construc tion program—and to fill in the gap she is receiving surplus United States fighting ships. Besides the three destroyer es cort vessels already received, it has been announced in Washington that Italy will get the “Wood- worth” and “Nicholson,” two of the fastest destroyers of the Amer ican navy. And after them, it is likely that still other ships may follow until Italy’s own new naval construction begins sliding down the ways. Probably equally important at the long-deserted naval air field just north of this big naval base, there now sits a long row of blunt-winged, blue-painted navy fighter-bombers. They’re former ■American Curtis hell-divers, sent here also as part of the arms aid program intended to help Italy guard her part of the Atlantic Pact’s western line. Until they ar rived, the Italian Navy had no air arm. Under the Peace Treaty she PSE BATTALION CLASSIFIED ADS TO BUV, SELL, BENT OR TRADE. Rates . . . . :ic a word per Insertion with a ?5c minimum.

The Peace Treaty — which the United States Senate has now proposed freeing- of its military limitations—also allows Italy no submarines, and no assault craft. She is allowed two battleships. She has afloat the ancient Doria— grim ghost of 1913 and World War I. The twin battleship, Duilio, also exists,—on paper. In reality, how ever, she is docked and under half hearted repair and modernization.

This new volume brings up to date the val uable features of its predecessors, and constitutes a treasure chest of helpful information and guidance. Officers of all grades and length of service, on active or inactive duty, recognize the value of having THE OFFICER’S GUIDE available for ready refer ence and wise counsel. Half a million officers have used this book in its many editions. THE OFFI CER’S GUIDE is not, as supposed by many individ uals, a guide designed solely for junior officers. True, most junior officers do acquire copies early in their career as there is no substitute for this reliable and ever ready source of helpful information. However, many experienced officers of senior grade with many years of service find THE OFFICER’S GUIDE a highly useful and time saving reference. The officer’s family will also benefit by reading this comprehensive volume. Selected sections such as Army Posts and Stations, Foreign Service and Life in Oversea Commands, Customs of the Service, The Code of the Army, and Leadership help to orient your family on the military way of life. To a surprising degree the career of an officer is influenced by hie wife. She can contribute most to his success if she is fully informed as to the Army’s codes, requirements, customs, and opportunities. This new edition is in tune with the situation of today and tomorrow. Considerable revision has been accomplished to incorporate important changes in regulations. Don’t get left out, come in today and get your copy today, we have only a limited stock.
