a t o r McKeilar DTenn introduced in the senate Thursday a resolution to repeal the neutrality act which bars the arming of American mer chant ships and prevents them from entering combat zones Declaring that the was was in direct conflict with our freedom of the seas policy McKeilar told his colleagues that the law ought to be repealed outright The Ten nessee senator has been a con sistent supporter of the adminis trations foreign policy but there was no immediate indica tion as to whether he introduced the repealer with the knowledge of senate leaders President Roosevelt said Tues day that revision or repeal of the act was being studied indicating that action might be forthcoming next week McKeilar said he thoueht that while the law was on the statute books the government was paying virtually no attention to it and for that reason it ought tdbe repealed Senator Taft ex pressed belief that repeal of the act would be equivalent to a dec laration of war At the very least he said to reporters it would grant the administration authority to carry on an undeclared war Taft foresaw a knockdown anddragout battle in the senate against any repeal forecast which few legislators dis promised that he and other opponents of the adminis trations foreign policy would fight Vigorously However Representative Wads worth R W Y believed that the house was ready to repeal or modi fy the law and he voiced the hope that it would be wiped off the statute books In all our history he told newsmen we fought for the right to sail the seven seas at will In the neutrality act we surrendered that right That al ways seemed to me morally wronr Both administration and opposi tion polls have indicated that President Roosevelt could obtain the senates consent to modifica tion of act on this and other points House leaders also forecast approval there Mr Roosevelt in dicated Tuesday that he intended lo nsk congress next week to re peal the ban on arming ships but informed
