all categories of ships will be off and an entirely different atmosphere substituted He asserted that this not only would benefit the national defense of the United States but the atti tude of the whole world and that of Great Britain and United States toward each other Another Important Bearing Another beneficial effect of suc cess in the problem he added would be its bearing on American naval policy All naval men agree in this he said as the United States naval men have been livingin a hand to mouth manner and they are the worst sufferers as a result of the present uncertainty No standard of policy ho con tinued has been set and the navy has been frequently called upon to make changes in its program due to congress or fluctuation of public opinion An agreement among the powers covering nil classes of vessels he went on would stabilize this factor and it would not be necessary for the navy to fight from year to year to get support for its program Effect Would Bo Greater The effect of a successful naval parley will appear infinitely greater when it is considered he said in TURN TO PAGE 3 COLUMN S Will Serve Four Months HAMPTON Sept the re cent meeting of the Loyal Daugh ters of the
