Frieds FINALLY CHECKED
Friends of Naval Bill Score Success
SURE TO PASS SOON
'Provision for Drydock and Dredging
at Charleston May Be
Washington, May 24.--The .econ
omy drive against the $495,000,000
naval wppropriatifn bill was shat
tered in the senate today when many
increases recommended by the naval
committee were adopted.
By a vote of 45 to 23 the senate
adopted a committee amendment, op
posed vigorously by the economy
forces, providing for a personnel of
120,000 men as against 100,0000 au
thorized by the house. Afterward, in
quick succession and without de
mands from the economy advocates
for roll call on the naval person
nel, apparently broke the attack of
senators who have been fighting to
overthrow the increases recommend
ed by the naval committee. The way
also was paved for passage of the
bill tomorrow or Thursday, after
prospective adoption of the Borah
amendment for a disarmament con
ference. There were reports today
of negotiations looking to restora
tion of appropriations for a new Pa
cific coast base at Alameda, Calif.
and for continuing drydock and
dredging projects at Charleston, S.
C. Whether these -negotiations fig

Party lines were broken in the
vote on fixing the navy personnel at
120,000. Thirteen Republicans voted
to hold the personnel to 100,000, but
the loss of these Republicans to the
committee provisions Was offset by
14 Democrats who voted to keep 120,
000 men in the navy.
Among committee increases adopt
ed were $160,377,000 for pay of per
sonnel, $5,800,000 for reserve forces,
$8,783,000 for provisioning $7500
000 for fuel and its transportation
and $5,000,000 for the marine corps
.and -quartermaster corps. Nearly all
of t.*. increases were bound up in
the desion for a personnel at 120,
Senator Lenrott, Republican, Wis
consin, led the battle today against
the committee increases and again
warned the Republicans that the
country would not stand for them.
He was joined by Senator Hitchcock.
Democrat, Nebraska, who announced
that he would vote against the bill

HELD LAST NIGHT
The graduating exercises of Tues
(lay evening was Opened with a pray
er by Rev. L. B. McCord. The saluta
tory address was given by Robert Du
Rant, who welcomed the audience and
asked them to give the seniors their
undivided attention, which was read
ily given. Next came the class his
tory by Miss Mary Rigby, who start
ed with the first year and told the
complete history of the class, telling
when each of the graduates joined the
class. The statistician address, by
Laurens Wilson came next and was
enjoyed by all who heard it. The
class poem, delivered by Miss Mary
Sue Wilson, was well worthy of hav
ing the name of class poem and was
delivered very nicely. The class prop
hecy, by Miss Lynn DuRant was fine
and the little "gypsy" who helped her
see the future must have read the
hearts and minds of each and every
one, as she seemed to have gotten each
of her class-mates in the right boat.
Miss Grace Thames, who gave the
toast to the seniors, is a very fine
toast mistress. She not only gave
toasts to her class-mates, but to the
teachers as well. Miss Elizabeth
Creecy, valedictorian of the class,
gave a very impressive talk to the
audience and then to her class-mates.
She who has worked hard and faith
fully, also had the honor of being
given the scholarship, and we are all
sure that she will be just as faithful
in her college work as she has been in
her grammar school and high school
work. The class song, sung to the
tune of "A Long, Long Trail A'wind
ing," was very much enjoyed. The
baccalaurate address was delivered by
Prof. J. A. Stoddard of the University
of South Carolina.
& At the close of the program, Alston
Davis, president of the senior class
presented Prof. Helms with a gift, as
a token of gratitude from the senior
class. It seems that Prof. Helms has
not been to them as a teacher, but
rather, as a fellow being. Prof.
Helm's thanked them in very im
pressive words an(d said that the class
of '21 was one of the very best classes
he had ever taught and said that they
were ever ready to help him at any
time. Rev. J. A. Easley closed the
program with a prayer. After this
the many beautiful flowers and daint

MANY MATTERS UP'
To Contribute to Expense Fund )f
Three Hundred Thousand
St. Louis, May 24.-Cooperatior "in
all practicable ways" with the church
unity campaign of the Council of the
Churches of Christ in America was
voted at the 61st general assembly
of the Southern Presbyterian church
The assembly decided also to con
tribute an equitable apportionment of
an expense fund of $300,0000 for the
support of the church. The method
of providing this was referred to the
committee on systematic beneficence.
The assembly declined to make any
recommendations on a movement for
national disarmament outline in a
letter from the council, explaining
that, "while we would hail with joy
any general movement looking to
ward reduction of armaments we feel
this is a matter that shou)d be han
died by the council itself rather than
by its constituent bodies acting in
theii separate capacity as churches."
The question of uniting the five
branches of the Presbyterian church
was brought up by a telegram from
the general assembly of the North
ern Presbyterian church, expressing
hope for closer relations of the two
In reply the assembly sent a mes
sage "reciprocating the sentiments of
fraternal regard," but explaining that
action by the Southern church had
been postponed for a year, and "we
deem at this time inexpedient to take
any further action."
The assembly adopted a committee
report defining the duties of the com
mittee on systematic benelcence and
stewardship and recommending that
it be designated the "assembly's com
mittee on stewardship."
The assembly voted against confer
