- n. Plural form of schoolship.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
As there are but two _schoolships_ in the United States, and none but New York and Pennsylvania boys are admitted on them, non-residents 'applications for enlistment would not be considered under any circumstances.
The chief idea in establishing the two schoolships, St. Mary's and Saratoga, was to fit boys for the mercantile marine, and probably, if ever the trans-Atlantic liners sail under our flag, they will be given appointments on them.
