26 Lord Louis
By His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
During a career which was remarkable both for its success and its diversity, Lord Mountbatten wanted always to be known as a naval officer. And that's the way a fellow naval officer remembers him.
36 The Potential for Foreign Ownership in the
U. S. Maritime Industry
By Ernst G. Frankel

42 Indian Ocean Arms Control
By Richard A. Best, Jr.

49 The Naval Reserve Should Work
By Captain James G. Abert, USNR

54 The Other Mississippi
By Midshipman Michael Moore, USNA
The shipbuilding difficulties of recent years in this country were nothing compared with those of the Confederate Navy. It lacked men, experience, transportation, raw materials, and a safe location.
58 Micronesia In Transition
By Lieutenant Jose Luis Betancourt, USN
Micronesians have seen their far-flung island homes under a variety of foreign flags. It is almost time for independence and time to wonder how they will do on their own.
63 Harpooning the Viking
By Lieutenant Commander Philip D. Voss, USN
In the past year, the S-3 ASW plane has been threatened. Instead of being on the defensive, the Viking has offensive potential if armed with the Harpoon missile.
