Send to the GlobeGazette Information Bureau j Frederic J Haskin Director Washington D C THREE THE OLD HOME TOWN By Stanley HOOVERS NAVAL CUT PLAN TTxNGLISH elections this country was observing its Memorial have an in teresting reaction on the proposal made by President Hoover for naval disarmament The plan was broached at Geneva by Ambassador Gibson and aroused great interest altho none of the naval powers actually ac cepted Mr Gibsons invitation to apply for copies of the Hoover formula They were all too wary to com mit themselves However since the Geneva meeting the slate department has sent a copy of the formula to all the naval powers without waiting to be asked for it thus puttingit strictly up to hemt A close study is being made by the British admiralty it is said in London With the electtons past there may be a little more willingness to go into the matter in a serious way than there has been up to this time Mr Hoovers proposal is something new in the world Personally worked out by the president it is said to be an accurate algebraic formula whereby the relative strength of fighting units can be determined as a whole instead of simply by matching cruisers against cruisers submarines against submarines etc By it Mr Hoover hopes to establish actual equality between this country and Britain while allowing each country to have the sort of vessels it believes suited to its needs Such a plan would eliminate the bitter controversy over cruisers in which the United States insisted on 10000ton vessels while the British wanted only smaller ones permitted This country felt that cruiser equality on the British figures would mean British superiority because of the British chain of naval stations permitting small cruisers to operate in any waters Britain always felt that equality of ton nage on our basis would mean American equality be cause of the superior gun power and range of the larger vessels Both sides are sincere enough without and the buildjngrjrace which is beginning is the consequents Mr Hooversformula if it actually does work out a table of fighting power that can adjust equality between the fleets without limiting the requirements as to types of vessels would be of great value However it would not be wise to be too optimistic about the Hoover formula In the last analysis it is a technical matter in which naval experts will have the last word

drew much comfort from it Army officials were quoted as expressing a belief that the greatest danger was past A reader at Jackson Miss took issue with the conclusion and cited some statistics with regard to water levels at different points along the Mississippi to provo that our sense of security was not well based In quoting the following therefore we have be lieved that ve had the ultimate in authenticity re garding the subject It is a statement by Maj Gen Edgar Jadwin chief of army engineers Incidentally it dcesnt contain the same degree comfort that marked the previous quoted matter It follows Conditions along the Mississippi and its trib utaries are quite threatening and if the heavy rains continue there is the likelihood of a very bad flood this year Reports from army engineers in the five dis tricts along the main river state that in some places the waters have reached the flood stage but are not quite so serious as presa reports indicate Army engineers all along the river are watching the situation closely and wherever breaks occur they repair them immediately Perhaps the most serious spot on the river system is at Kennett in Missouri on the St Fran cis river one of the main tributaries of the Mis sissippi Heavy rains have swelled the Arkansas river and conditions along it are quite critical Weak places have developed along the main river nltho the levees along it are in good condi tion Sand boils where water has seeped under neath the leveeshave occurred in some spots but have been repaired without serious effects More over there has been some trouble with breaks in local levees on the upper river At Cairo III one of the most vulnerable spots on the river the water has reached a level of 52 2 feet The flood level there is 45 feet while the city Jtselt with 15000 population is entirely aur rounded by a levee Should it give way the enttre area will be Hooded The flood control program provides for the construction of a spillway at this point to lessen the flood menace We have closed all the gaps along the river and strengthened the weaker places in nreparinsr for a possible flood Only about onetenth of our entire flood control program has been completed and adequate protection against a flood has not yet been provided About 20000 officers and enlisted men of the corps of engineers are stationed along the river with orders to keep close watch on the situation corps is cooperating with the Mississippi river commission and with local flood boards to the fullest extent In the flood control work and reconstruction THANKS TO THE 50OO
