EXPERTS FEARFUL FORCONFERENCE Paris Crisis Puts Outcome o Naval Parley in Doubt LONDON Feb 21 currents of apprehension with re gard to possible consequences of UK French political situation were dis cernible today among delegates lo the five powcjr naval conference who remained in London over the weekend The question uppermost in most minds was what will hap pen to the conference if the govern ment crisis is not settled by next Wednesday when the present weeks recess will be concluded London Hoped Camille Chautemps would be able to obtain a majority in the French chamber for the cab inet which he was forming today Altho the chiefs of the delega tions at least publicly show no dis position to view the future with any great glo9m it is said that Secre tary Stinison and Prime Minister MacDonald in conversation yes terday discussed their fears of fur ther prolongation of the conference and probable effect upon world opinion It is possible that if the French situation has not cleared up defi nitely by the first of the week that MacDonald may call a meeting of the chief delegates even before next Wednesday in an attempt to dis cover some solution There has been no public estimate of the cost of the conference day by day but no one contradicts the fact that each weeks delay will cost a huge sum Evidence that even the British are feeling the strain was shown in the house of commons last night when there was a somewhat caustic debate on an appropriation of 9000 pounds for entertainment and other expenses of the confer ence NOT NECESSARY TO BUILD MORE NAVAL TONNAGE airman

asserts that if the London conference fails and he believes it will it will be the third one that has been a fizzle be cause of British obstinacy The fall of the Tardicu cabinet in France he

must be no diplomatic victory at the expense of our na val defense There must be no agreement that docs not insure ac tual naval fighting parity with England ton for ton and each na tion to build the kind of cruisers it deems best suited forits position in domestic and world peace If the British admiralty are the friends they pretend to be let Lliem make a friendly gesture aimed at world peace forget that Britannia rules the waves and give thot to the worlds overburdened taxpay ers He referred to fifteen billion dollars worth of American mer chandise which found its way into every seaport
