Trophy 50 40 30 20 10 In the buiding of one of our new battleships, an av­erage of about 4,500 men will be employ­ed at the building site and 4,300 in outside work over a 54 month period. That on 1 July, 1938, 52 ships of the Navy had Marine Corps de­tachments aboard. The total U. S. Marine Corps personnel afloat was 125 officers and 2800 enlisted men. B The U. S. S. Saratoga has more than 250 compartments u, sed for the stowage of provisions and supplies. E+ At the time the " three mile limit" was set as the seaward boun­daries of coastal states, three mar­ine miles constituted the range of their cannon, and it was felt that a coastal state could maintain its auth­ority. B The Naval Station, Tutuila, Sam-oa is the southernmost of the United States regularly manned naval hold­ings. E+ During the early years of our Navy, when fighting took place at very short ranges, and often culmin­ated in actual boarding of enemy ships, the primary duty of a marine was to serve as a sharpshooter with his trusty musket in the more ele­vated positions of the ship. B Ships still are built with dummy funnels ( smoke stacks). In one of the Normandie's funnels is contained the ventilating system and dog kennels. The Britannic uses one funnel for the engineer's smoking room, and one of the Georgia's funnels is used for a smoking room and wireless equip­ment. E+ " Boats" are the small craft carr-ied by a larger vessel. Never refer to a ship or a st. e. a. m.. e. r, as a " boat". In a calm sea any man is a good pilot.
