A. June 22. a president Roosevelt it was Learned tonight is giving most serious consideration to the possibility that both the British and French fleets May fall into the hands of Germany and thus Force the United states to double its fighting fleets to match the sea Power of Tho totalitarian nations. Naval experts it was Learned have handed or. Roosevelt memoranda showing that America s first line of defense would he tremendously outweighed in the Atlantic by totalitarian Battle fleets should Germany and Italy defeat Britain As Well As Fiance and gain Possession of British sea units. Or. Roosevelt studied the memoranda while Germany and Italy in dictating terms of an armistice to War crushed France sought to insure Transfer to them of the highly effective French n a v a whereabouts of which is not known Here. Considering All possible future phases of the defense of the United states and the Western hemisphere or Roosevelt it was Learned is studying the possibility that events in the relatively near future May create a situation where National safety would Force this country to order naval expansion even above the $4,000,000.-000 plan to increase the Fleet s tonnage by to per sent. That authorization Bill. Approved last week try the House naval affairs committee has passed the House. Present naval expansion plans designed to give the United states the greatest fighting fleets afloat Are unprecedented in their scope and Cost in peace time. The Vinson Bill recently approved by or. Roosevelt authorizes an la per cent expansion of tonnage Over the 1934 total. The Bill pending in tile House would authorize a 70 per cent expansion Over the total authorized by the Vinson act.

The memoranda surveyed the Atlantic situation on basis of relative strength at the Start of the european War. That rating for the Atlantic gave naval strength As follows United states too great Britain Joo France 50 Italy 50 Germany 33. It pointed out however that should the French Fleet fall into German hands the rating would i ii irk in shift As follows United states i tit great Britain too italian French German fleets 133. Should the British Fleet also fall to Germany tile ratio would show United states too totalitarian Powers 233. It was understood the memoranda Drew no conclusion but implication of the comparisons was obvious. British and american sea Power outweighs any possible combination of european totalitarians combined with the French Fleet but capture of both the British and French naval units by the Axis nations would relegate the United states to the role of a strictly secondary naval Power in tile Atlantic.

Today the sky grew overcast As the afternoon wore on and it was gloomy in the Woods by the time the hour of signature arrived.
