MODERN BATTLESHIPS.

London, March 18

The newspapers comment on a passage in Mr Churchill's sreech in which he said that the true pictme of a battle with modern battleships is not one of men in armour striking .with heavy sword, but of a battle of two eggshells striking each rther with hammers. Mr Churchill added: ''This fact suggests doubt as to whether enormous ships are not approaching the culminating phase." Experts, commenting on the speech, point out that submarines have almost the range of battieshipa. while torpedoes can travel seven miles at a speed of twenty-nine knots an hour; but it is donbt/ul whether it would be safe to reduce the size of battleships.
