ABLE DEFENSE PI AX.
Missourian Says Congress Will
Work Out System Satisfactory
to Everybody. <
Washington. Nov. 19?Champ
Clark, speaker of the house, told
Presrent Wilson today he favored a
national defense programme within
reasonable limits. He said he had not
committed himself to the details of
the administration's proposed army
and navy increases because he had
not considered them thoroughly but
that he believed the coming congress
would work out satisfactory legilation.
"I only talked to the president for
a few minutes," said the speaker after
leaving the White House. 'We bdiefly
discussed the army and nary programme
proposed. I frankly said
that I would be in favor of legisla-1
tion which would assure reasonable
^defense for the country against any;
possible enemy. I did not got into de-j
-tarns. For one thins I think that'
--there might be difficulty in working :
out the plan for raising the socalled
- continental army, but I am confident:
congress will work out a general!
scheme of increased defenses satis-1
factory to everybody."
A Bill of His Own.
; Speaker Clark stopped here on the
way to speak in Pennsylvania, the
president having written him recently
expressing a wish to confer with him ,
before congress convened. He said
he had given the subject of national i
prepardness much thought in the last
few mouths and would take an active !
part in proposing legislation. For
one thing he proposes to introduct a
'hill to bouble appointments to West
"Point and Annapolis, and also to [
make it passible for any qualified j
youth to attend either institution at.
his own expense and at actual cost.
In his talk with the president the
speaker said he realized that derein#
- . i
degislation to meet the preparedness i
programme was essential and that J
extension of the special war tax would
be necessary. As a possible means of
increasing revenue, he suggested the
reduction of the exemption and in
crease of surtax in the income tax
law, the continuation of the duty on

Won't Assume Leadership.
Mr. Clark said published statements
.aat he would leave the speak
ei's chair to take charge of the preparedness
measure were exaggerations.
! "The speaker of the house can take
he floor and discuss a subject any
i time be sees fit to do so," he added.
! "I might take an opportunity to ad|

leadership is buncombe."
The recent announcement by Representative
Claude Kitchin, ^majority
leader of the house, of his opposition
ro the administration's defense programme
was followed by the reports
to which the speaker referred. It
was pointed out tonight however,

to allow his name to go before

presidential primary to be held next
The formal declination of Justice
Hughes to which he took oath before
a nntarv and which was telesrashed
to the secretary of state at Lincoln
was as follows. "A petotion having

The attorney general of .Nebraska
has been quoted as saying Justice
Hughes could not withdraw his name
from the nrmiarv ticket. On the other

Nebraskaers in Washington contend
there is no question as to his

It is believed that the secretary of
state of Nebraska will lay the matter
before the attorney general for opin-l
