Continued on page four The following men are to be con­gratulated for their step up the lad­der. At 1155 Thursday morning, Mrs, Yancey S. Williams smashed a bottle of champaign across the bow of America's newest man- of- war and spoke the phrase " I christen thee Smith" at this moment the Smith started to move gracefully down the ways and a minute later she floated completely water borne in mid- stream.

In fact, with the era of Lincoln the modern navy was born. It was during his later life that sails gave way to steam. It was the Navy, thru her blockades, which finally forced the South into submission. It was during the Civil War that the first iron clad ships, the Monitor and the Merrimac, appeared.
