BATTLE SHIP PLUS
Caucus Opposes New "War
Vessels and Public Build
SAVING OF $50,000,000
There will be no battleships and no
public buildings at this session of Con
gress. The Democrats of the House met
in caucus last night and by an over
whelming majority refused to reverse
the decision of the caucus of more than
a month ago that there should be no
battle ship appropriation and no publlo
building appropriation this year.
Motion Badly Beaten.
Representative Padgett of Tennessee,
chairman of the House Committee on
Naval Affairs, offered a motion propos
ing that the former action of the caucas
be rescinded. This was voted down 117 to
25. Then Majority Leader Underwood
moved that the decision of the former
caucus against battle ships rand public
buildings be made a party measure. This
was almost unanimously carried. This
action by the cau:us finally settles this
exed question that has bothered the
economists of the House for the last
month or two

a serious blow to the planaef Secretary!

The action of the House Democrats was
taken ill opposition to the views of Dem
ocratic members of the House Committee
on Naal Affairs, some of whom favored
two battle ships, and most of them, at
least, one battle ship. The Democrats,
under the leadership of Chairman Un
dent ood. however, are bent on making a
record for economy, and the programme
went through without much opposition.
The Democrats about a month'sgo had
no intention of putting a ban on battle
ship appropriation. The Democratic
leaders were determined, howeer. to kill
the public buUdlncs bill, and the Dem
